SOURCE: No drainage water, room too humid

Sounds like the compressor is cycling in and out on a safety switch , could be high or low pressure, due to being short of gas for example

Check for some type of float switch in the condensate pan. It will shut down the unit to prevent more condensate but I am not sure if it would still allow the indoor fan to run.

Pump cap won't open?

Sounds like there is a large clog in the pump filter causing it do jam. You may have to work at it to remove it, or you may have to disassemble the washer and extract the clog manually by opening up the drain lines and pulling it back from the filter.

Whirlpool gu1200xtls2 wont drain just stopped


your Whirlpool dishwasher stopped draining mid-cycle, check your circuit breaker or fuses. The cycle won't complete if the power is interrupted. Reset the circuit breaker if tripped, or change out any blown fuses. Fully close the dishwasher door, and restart the cycle if you opened up the door. If you have not used the dishwasher in a while, the motor may be stuck. Open up the main housing, and rotate the motor until it turns freely. You must replace the motor if it's corroded or won't move since it's unlikely that you can fix it.


The pump is located underneath the lower rack and spray arm. This component is responsible for pumping water out of the dishwasher once the cycle is complete. If the pump isn't working, verify that it is not clogged with debris. Use a toothpick or plastic utensil to remove food particles from it. Check the pump impeller. If a section of it is broken, get a new pump since the impeller is difficult to fix.


Clogs in the air gap or drainage hose prevent water from leaving the tub. Clean these components and the water inlet filters, if dirty. Examine the drainage hose, and straighten it if it's kinked. If the hose is badly crushed, you must replace it. Unscrew the drainage hose from the dishwasher to clean it, but reattach it before you restart the cycle. Run the food waste disposer if it's connected to your Whirlpool dishwasher. Remove the knockout plug from the disposer if you have just installed the disposer or dishwasher.

Drain Valve/High Drain Loop

Whirlpool dishwashers have drain valves with an internal solenoid. This valve opens and closes to drain water out of the tub. If the drain valve is stuck, lubricate the lever, and remove any debris clogging the valve. Remove any objects that are preventing the drain valve from freely opening and closing. If the valve is not working properly, you must replace it. Always install a high drain loop to prevent water from the sink entering your dishwasher. Create a loop of the drainage hose that is at least 18 inches high. Attach this hose beneath a section of cabinetry.

Water keeps building up in the refrigerator under the drawers, then it freezes. We cannot figure out where the water is coming from and if we have the temp too low.

This a normal occurrence of condensation forming from the humidity in the air each time you open and close the door. There is or is normally a drain that allows the condensate water to drain into a holding pan under the refrigerator. It could possibly be clogged. Also that is one of the reasons to assure that the refrigerator is level, to facilitate drainage. The water trapped/pooled in an unlevel refrigerator will freeze as it stands on the cooling surface, thus effectively insulating the cooling elements from the interior of the box, which in turn requires the sensing unit to request more cooling in order to maintain the temperature setting of the thermostat. If your local is a high humidity area it builds up very fast. It is acting on the same principles as a dehumidifier.

My 2004 endeavor a/c is draining in the vehicle on the drivers side floor board and i took that side up and was water galore. it looks like it is draining from that black drain from the center but does not...

Same thing happened with my 2004 endeavor. There are 2 fixes (as I understand) for this...the first is to get the drain hose blown out. It can get clogged with gunk, then the resevoir fills up with condensation water and overflow.
The other fix is much more involved and expensive. As I understand it from some research I have done, the drainage hole in the resevoir gets clogged with debris that has made its way down from the grill on the hood just in front of the windshield. There is no filter there (Mitsubishi now has one available), so leaf crud, dust and dirt can get drawn into the resevoir and clog it up.
The permanent fix is to pull the AC to get to the resevoir, pull and clean the resevoir, reinstall everything, then put the filter under the grate.
BTW, when my mechanic blew out my hose and was draining the car, he said there is a hollow space underneath the floorboard and it was holding about 5 gallons of water.
So far, running the AC in southern humidity, it has not backed up in about 4 months. I may have to have it blown out again next spring to avoid the water problem again (this was the second time I had to have the condenser drain line blown out).
Hope this helped.

I have water leaking through the ceiling under where the Air con is. I have checked the drainage pipe and blown it clean but still getting water comng through the ceiling. Is there any wher else I can...

You need to determine if it is coming from your Air Handler. If it is, and you are confident that the drainage pipe is clear, then you could have a cracked condensate pan. I would suggest shutting the system off and opening it up to inspect the inside of your system. If there is ice present on the coil, check your filter and the cleanliness of the coil. If both are okay, call a contractor.....there could be a problem with airflow or refrigerant levels. If there is no ice present, check the bottom of the unit, if it is wet, it could be a leaking condensate pan (the part the drainage pipe taps into). You can shut the system off with the fan running and allow the inside to dry out......then begin pouring water into into the pan and watch to see if it leaks out...or if the unit is draining. If it is leaking, you should consult a contractor. Generally speaking, condensate pans cannot generally be repaired....and being that it is located in your attic, it's not worth the risk.
In Summary:
Ensure your air filter(s) is clean
Ensure your airflow is not impeded by closed or blocked off vents
Ensure your evaporator coil (located inside your unit) is not clogged with dirt/debris
Ensure your blower wheel is clean.
Ensure your condensate pan is not leaking.
If these steps do not help to correct the problem, contact a professional.

Does not complete spin cycle

Ok, when this happens, its usually because of a drainage issue. the spin cycle has to work in conjunction with the drain pump to remove the water during the spin cycle and, if there is a clog or drainage issue, the spin cycle will shutdown. check the following to address this drainage issue.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Washer won't spin out the water

This is a drainage issue. the spin cycle works in conjunction with the draining pump. they both work at the same time during the spin. if the drainage hoses or pump are clogged with debris, it will prevent the water from being drained properly.

Check the following to address the faulty drainage issue.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Water leaking in to car from clogged drain tube

the a/c drain tube is ONLY to drain a/c condensate coming of the evaporator in your a/c system. Has nothing to do with rain, but everything to do with high humidity. If you put you a/c in "ecirc" mode when using the a/c, you cut down on condensate draining by about 70%.
WItht he a/c running ona humid day, you should see condensate draining out of the drain tube on the passenger side under the car body.

The rain water is another story. You have an air intake we call a "Rainhat" that is under the leaf screen at the base of the windshield towards the passenger side. If you have rain water dripping or running into the rainhat, it will run into your heater plenum (the big, black plastic thing under the instrument panel).

Remove the leaf screen and look for leaves or other debris clogging the area around the rainhat. look to see if water is running along the metal trim above the rainhat and dripping into the rainaht opening.

I once fabricated a cover over the rainhat using the bottom of a plastic anitfreeze bottle. I made an opening at the rear so it could still draw air in without restriction. It solved the water running along the base of the leaf screen and drooping right inot the rainhat. It rusted the blower motor and ruined it.

Good luck.

Dishwasher doesn't drain

how do you check to see if the pump is pumping? The drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. The garbage disposal is not clogged either.
