Usually it is due to poor draining ie. garbage disposal clogging etc... If it connected to the garbage disposal get a bucket, disconnect drain hose and run rinse and hold drain line over bucket to see if it is draining at all. It should drain completely if it is showing it is trying to drain it is a blockage in the pump underneath. but try the hose first and go from there.

I have LDF6920 dishwater. There is a leak at the bottom of the door possibly from the vent. What to do?


The drain tube from the vent to the bottom right of door may be clogged with food debris. On mine this tube was not placed at the right place so the water was soaking a foam part and the water was dripping outside the bottom pan. The seal of the vent may need to be replaced but the drain tube is supposed to take the excess water.

During the defrost cycle our refrigerator leaks water from the freezer side out the front into the floor of the kitchen. Where could it be coming out and what will fix it?


The water from the melting ice during defrost should be guthered from the drip drain pan which is under the evaporator pipe coil and is passing though the drain tube which is conected to the dip pan and should end out on the back of the fridge to the compressor to evaporate. The problem posibly is that the drain tube is goggle either from ice or from dirt or both and the water since it can not end to compressor it overfrow from drip pan inside the freezer. So you can clean the drip pan and drain tube using a wire rod and problem will be solved.

Problem is put the dishwater on ,doesnt seem to be enough water on the cycle ,dishwater goes through the whole cycle even drys, but has some water lying at the bottom at the end .Some said it might be a...


Check that your supply faucet is open, Check if there is a screen in the supply line, these can become blocked due to scale deposits from the mains. If there is no screen check that the inlet solenoid valve has not got blocked. If none of the above help, check that there is power getting to the solenoid valve when the machine is supposed to be on the fill cycle. If no power is betting to the valve, the timer might ba faulty. (You can try hand filling the machine and see if it goes through a cycle, at least up to the rinse stage, this will tell you if the timer control is working).
If you feel that there is water not being pumped out, remove the bottom strainers and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

Dishwasher is draining during the wash cycle, but leaves water in the bottom at the end of the wash. What could be the problem?


Hello Ellsaesser,

Dishwashers typically leave water in the drain system exitting the pan but not a lot of water. If yours does then make sure you clean the drain screen ( normally located in or around the drain tube exitting the pan of the dishwasher..) If after cleaning that and after a normal wash cycle you continue to have significant volumes of water in the pan, the pump, lines leading to and from that pump may be restricting flow or damaged.. Those are a few of the normal culprets for why there is a lot of water in the pan of dishwashers after a cycle.. Hope that helps you identify the problem and resolve it,..,
Regards

Is a Kenmore Elite Upright Frost-Free Freezer supposed to have water leaking from underneath it? Would this be the water accumulating from the "defrost cycle" on it?


Is the drain pan underneath overflowing? If so the water filter may be clogged and the water leaking past it to the pan. The normal amount of water from the defrost cycle shouldn't fill it up. The condenser fan usually evaporates the water by blowing the warm air on the pan.
There could be a leak because or the defrost drain being stopped up but this usually comes out the bottom of the freezer door.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Water in box waqter keeps accumulating on shelves iveg bins andunder bins


When the freezer goes through the defrost cycle, the water collects in the defrost drain pan and drains into a pan underneath the unit where it evaporates over time. If the defrost drain pan is clogged, the water will fill the pan where it will freeze. Once the pan is full of ice, the water from the defrost cycle will run over the pan and down into the fresh food section. This will require that the drain pan be clean of the ice and the drain tube cleared of ice and debris.
Hope this helps.

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.
