It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

Why does my fill tube for my ice maker continue to drip and freeze up?


Usually a leaking water valve can cause this. This can be caused by low or high water pressure or just a leaking valve. Remove the tube from the valve and if water continues to drip from the valve it is bad or the water pressure is wrong. If it does not drip, leave the water line disconnected from the valve and dispense some water from the dispenser to see if it leaks. If it does the water is bleeding over and the valve is bad. If the valve is not leaking at all insure the fill tube that goes through the box and supplies water to the ice maker is seated properly and sealed off with permagum for instance. Also make sure the freezer section is not too cold ie -15 or -20 as this could cause issues.

My Bosch washing machine pumps the water out continuously without ever filling the tub. When I first start a load, the water moves through the detergent dispenser but never gets to the tub. About 5 minutes...


Could be time to call the electrician. If the freeze happened recently you are possibly further inland than me. Lagging on pipes often helps and wrapping external taps and pipes with towels or the likes for winter and with plastic tied over top if in the weather. After super cold frosts we are best not running showers and taps till midday or later occasionally. Vehicles can be similar if it is cold enough. Fill jugs and bottles the night before for breakfast if the water might freeze. If your water might be soon dirty because of a flood or water supply stopped, fill the bath with clean water before it is

LG drains and fills at same time.


This is caused by the " the flood" circuit at the bottom of the dishwasher that detects some water leak. Once this circuit detects any water on the bottom of the washer, it immediately switches the pump out circuit on. It consists of a polystyrene float coupled to a micro switch. You need to dry the bottom and then check for leaks (hose or hose clamp).

GE Artica PSS29NGNA no ice is being / no water flow on ice side


It is possible the water control valve on the back of the refrigerator is defective. When the thermostat in the ice maker tells the water control valve to ope after dumping the ice. Try filling the ice maker with tap water and let it freeze and cycle one time. It is also possible that the fill tube for the ice maker has frozen shut because of the slow continious flow of a leaking water control valve. You can try to clear the ice with a hair dryer, but if the control valve continues to let water buy will have another damaged ice maker. The part number for the water control valve is WR57X10032 and you can enter parts numbers and model numbers on the search feature at the link below. Let me know how thing are and if you were able to get this under control, I am here to help if you like, sorry I just today saw your post, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Washing machine fills up with water and continues till you stop it yourself. Also if you try to turn knob to agitate the cycle it wont . It will go to the spin cycle if you manually take it there. Hoping...


lol, no It's not the motor. The motor drives the spin cycle, so it's fine.

Unplug the machine!

Now about the water filling continiously. Look for where the water level switch is located and open the machine to look at the back of that switch. there should be a hose connected to the back of this, sometimes it becomes DISCONNECTED, sometimes it gets chewed on by a mouse. if the hose is connected on that side feel along the hose to see if it is broken or chewed up, if it is, replace the hose. If not replace the water level switch.

It's important to note that If the hose were disconnected at the other end water would be all over the floor as soon as the machine started to fill up.

Indesit DV620 Dishwasher


You have a internal leak in the dishwasher...there is a safety float system in the base (below where you put the dishes in!) of the unit, which in the event of water in the base will stop the cycle and activate the drain pump continiously.... You will have to open the unit and find the leak. Don't know these models, but usually you have to remove side panels and front panel, drain water from the base and re-start....then check with flashlight where the leak is. Oshie

The water continues to drip after the ice cube maker is full.


Sounds like the water fill solenoid valve is leaking by. You will have to change that solenoid valve if the water continues to drip into the ice maker tray after a normal fill cycle. http://www.partselect.com/AdvancedModelSearch.aspx?ModelNum=JCD2295HES&mfgModelNum=JCD2295HES&fkMfgID=1
