Drip tray for LG washer

My washer is on the second floor. Do I really need a drip tray? The reason is that it doesn't fit with the current drain hole. What are the chances a new washer will leak?

Where can I access the defrost drain hole in my Kenmore model 253.74879404 Refrigerator? Disassembling the freezer did not work.


I've used used a compressor for that drain hole at the back of the fridge. A hanger wire will work too. I've never tried it but maybe a can of compressed air might work also.
The water drain line is plugged and that little catch tray is overflowing. That's why you're ending up with water under your bins inside the fridge. The problem is not in the freezer or else you'd have a skating rink on the floor of the freezer.
I don't recognize the photos exactly but they're all the same principle. Take everything out of the fridge , including the racks. It's far easier than o find the screws and disassemble the drain "catchall".
Good luck.

True back bar freezing up


Most models have a metal drip collector below the evaporator that has a drain hole in it where the defrosted water goes into before it goes down to the drip trap and then out the drain hose. If the area around the drain hole has cracks, or was punctured during servicing, the drain water can get underneath the tray and run out beside and around the drip tray and never gets into the drain tube and freeze in that location. A careful inspection of this area will reveal any issues.

I HAVE A MAYTAG AUTOMATIC ELECTRONIC DEFROST CONTROL REFRGATOR MODEL MSD2272VEB00. EVERY FEW DAYS WATER LEAKED FROM UNDER THE REFRIGERATOR ONTO THE FLOOR FROM WHAT APPEARS TO BE AT THE FRONT RIGHT SIDE OF...


Inside of the unit is a drain hole that will drain out water to the drip pan. The drip pan is located under the unit and it uses the heat of the motor to evaporate the moisture that collects in it. The drain hole is plugged. Go on youtube and you can watch a video on how to fix it. Very easy.

Unit is leaking water from somewhere


Upper drip pan drains clogged, water overflowing onto the floor.

Remove the rear cover of the unit and clean it thoroughly wit a vacuum. Let the unit fully defrost. Use a can of Air duster (for pc's) with the little hose on to clear the drain holes in the upper drip tray. Clean dirty evaporator fins with windex and toothbrush, flush with water. Excess condensate should now drain into the bottom tank instead of overflowing ontot he ground. Be sure to drain the bottom tank thoroughly. With the unit cleaned it should now vent condensate out the warm air duct rather than letting it build up in the unit.

Water drips in refrigerator. I think it has to do with the defrost feature, which seems to drip only periodically.


You are correct. the defrost drain is most likely plugged up causing the water to drip into the refrigerator through the air returns in the ceiling of the fridge.
To access the defrost drain hole in your model you will have to remove the back wall from the freezer compartment and possibly the floor of the freezer as well if it has the floor air flow tray.
The repair is quite simple- remove as much of the ice as possible (i use a putty knife to pull it up in as large chunks as possible and then use a moistened dish towel to pick up the smaller pieces.
Use a turkey baster with some hot water to "plunge" the drain hole out. The drain hole is located in the bottom center of the evaporator opening.
Good luck!

WATER FREEZES ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FREEZER


I have an LG armoire style fridge/freezer and it had lots ice in the bottom and would eventually drip onto the floor. The problem was with the defrost controller. The moisture that enters the freezer when it is opened condenses and freezes on the freezer coil/fins. There is a heating element that sits under this coil which gets turned on by the defrost controller to melt the frost/ice. As the frost/ice melts it drips into a metal tray which channels the water to a drain hole to have it drop into the drip tray underneath the unit for it to evaporate. The problem is that the before the water has time to leave the freezer, it freezes thereby plugging up the drain hole and thus causing subsequent defrost cycles to have the water flow into the bottom of the freezer where it freezes. Eventually the bottom of the freezer fills up with enough ice for the melted water to flow onto the floor. I had my defrost controller replaced (just outside the warranty period!) and it worked for about 1-month and then same thing happened again. Instead of paying for another defrost controller that would probably not work 100% my serviceman used the old paper-clip trick. He took a paper clip, stretched it out and then wrapped one end around the heating element and placed the other end into the drain hole. Thus when the heating element comes on the paper clip keeps the drain hole warm/hot and prevents the water from freezing. It has been 9 months since this fix and I haven't had any ice pooling in bottom of the freezer.

When I had the problem and started diagnosing it I opened up the freezer, pulled out the racks, draws, and eventually the door. Then I removed the ice maker and then a few screws and carefully removed the back white wall panel disconnecting the fan and any other electrical connections. Behind the panel you will see the cooling coil/fins, the heating element, the drip pan, and drain hole. Most likely you will see a sheet of ice everywhere. The best way to remove the ice is to boil a bunch of water in a tea kettle and slowly pour it on the ice to get it to melt so that you can start breaking out the pieces. Have a sponge and bucket ready to remove the water as the ice starts to melt. Eventually you should get all of the ice removed and get the drain hole unplugged. After all the ice is removed, you still need to fix the real problem by replacing the defrost controller, using the paper clip trick, or both.

Water draining into frig


you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back of freezer..you will see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. the reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking down the vent instead of the drain hole...If you need any further assistance please feel free to comment again. good luck!

It leaks water onto the floor.


Where is the water coming from? unless you have a leaking ice maker fitting on the back or somewhere else, the most likely cause would be a stopped up defrost drain. check inside the freezer on the back wall and floor. if you see ice you will need to unstop the drain. (most newer models don't have a removable drain pan)
