Sometimes the drain can clog with ice. If this is it - simple fix. Empty the freezer and find the drain. Put hot water in the drain with a turkey baster or try using a hair dryer to thaw the ice and let the water drain. A small amount of water drainage through this drain is normal. The water sits in a tray underneath and evaporates helped by heat from the compressor. If the drain plugs, the water will build up in the bottom of the freezer and become an ice block.

Determine first if you hear any noise when it is trying to drain. If you do, the drain pump is getting power. Unplug the washer and remove the access panel below the door. There are screws across the bottom. With the panel removed, you will see the drain pump sitting on the floor on the right side. There is a cap on the front of the pump that can be unscrewed. Be careful as there could be a sunstantial amount of water that drains onto the floor. Have plenty of bath towels ready. Sometimes by tipping the washer back against the wall will cause the water to flow to the back of the tub minimizing the amount of water that will leak onto the floor. Now unscrew the cap and remove it. Look for any debris in the trap and around the impeller area of the pump. After cleaning it, reassemble everything but the front panel and try draining it again. If it works you are all set. If not, you may need to replace the pump as it could have burnt out

What you need to do is run washing machine cleaner through the machine, typically monthly. Do not disassemble, you will not find anything that you can help with.
Also, be certain that you are having successful vacuum break at the discharge point of the drain hose. Sometimes you can draw water back into the machine. BE sure that you have a p trap on the drain into which you are draining.

I've got a 2006 Saturn Vue that keeps getting water in the front, under the floor mats. It appears to be coming from the center underneath and behind the instrument cluster/center console. Could this be...


The most common source of water on the floor is a plugged a/c evaporator case drain hose. This drain is generally located down low on the engine side of the firewall at the passenger side and is usually a small short open ended hose that points down. Debris and bugs will clog this hose which makes the water that condenses on the evaporator [whenever the a/c is on] overflow and leak out of the heater/air conditioning housing and onto the floor. If it hasn't rained for some time yet you are still getting water on the floor I would bet on this hose being plugged. A puff of compressed air is enough to clean most of them out. Most sunroofs have one or two small drain holes that allow water to run down through the door pillars and onto the ground. If you pour a small amount of water around the top edges of the sunroof when it is closed you should soon see water dripping onto the ground under the outer edge of the vehicle. A few sunroofs just rely on tight weather stripping to keep the water out but those usually drip water on the driver or passenger if they are leaking. I see a lot of leaky windshields but again, it has to be raining for water to get on the floor from them.

Door will not open or run. Looks like machine has ran through the cycle.


Many modern machines will not open the door unless all of the water has been drained. Check by lowering the drain hose to floor level and catching any water in a pan or bucket. If you get only a small amount, try unplugging the machine for a few minutes to reset the computer system. If still nothing, it may be time to call for service. Good luck!

older fridges drained water into a pan with the compressor in it, thus cooling the compressor and evaporating the water, this is located at the bottom back of the fridge. if this fridge has a water and/or ice dispensor, the water could be leaking from many a place.

Water leaking from freezer


Check for a blocked defrost drain. Take the panel off at the back of the freezer section and find the small hole at the very bottom center below the cooling coils. Use hot (but not boiling) water and a turkey baster to flush it out until water runs through it. (it will go into the defrost drain pan, where it will evaporate)
This will prevent water from comming out the freezer door and leaking onto your floor and running down your copper pipe to the basement.
