I can't install my drain

To install a drain through the DIY technique can be tough, provided you have all the tools and equipment to perform the task. However, do not take risk with such a volatile thing and instead call a professional plumber, who are the expertise and the tools to install your drain. Residentail plumbers are always very handy with general plumbing, drain line and sewer line installation, repair and replacement.

Can a new car radio kill the battery?

Yes and that was due to bad installation. I have had 3 car stereos installed on my 98 RAV4 through Best Buy and never had battery problems. I even had 2 amps installed as well but the installers had to make me buy this 200-dollar thing that would not drain the battery.

If you are getting a drain through the radio's power supply it could eventually drain down the battery if it was improperly installed, I would pull the fuse for the radio and see if the drain continues, if the drain does not stop there is another short somewhere. To learn more :

What does the IE error code mean? The washer wont drain.

The IE fault code indicates that your washer is not filling properly with water This error code is displayed if the washer is not fully drained within 10 minutes. I will give you troubleshooting tips for both the fill problem and the drain problem.

To troubleshoot a drain problem, follow these steps:

  • Follow the steps on page 17 of your owner's manual to clean the drain pump filter. If you do not have your owner's manual, you can access it on our Manage My Home website.
  • Check your drain hose for kinks or clogs.
  • Make sure that the drain hose is properly installed according to the installation instructions for your washer.

Here are some troubleshooting steps for the filling problem:

  • Make sure that the water valves behind your washer are fully open.
  • Check the filter screens on the inlet valves where your fill hoses connect to the back of the washer. If debris is clogging the screens, remove the screens and thoroughly clean them. Flush the inlet openings thoroughly with water to prevent debris from entering the washer and corrupting the inlet water valves.
  • A drain installation problem can cause siphoning of washer fill water. Make sure that the drain hose is properly installed per the installation guidelines for your washer.

My dishwasher doesn't drain? what can i check

How long it was installed? recently? Perhaps the installer didn't:

- Knock out the plug from the food disposer.
- Didn't check for kinks in the drain hose.

Installed a while ago?
- Check the drain hose, look for clogs, kinks
- Check the pump in the dishwasher (under), perhaps broken glass or small bones are jamming the drain pump.

Some water sits in the bottom and does not drain completely. Don't know if the drain inside the sink was not properly installed or if the sink is designed that way.

this is not supposed to happen, either drain not installed properly or drain is clogged. suggest trying drain cleaner first if sink has been in for a period of time. if sink is recently installed call whoever installed and have them fix the drain

Installed vent? Dishwashers drain directly into the sink drain line. Drain can be installed in cross over between sink drains or on line from sink drain.

Will not drain..its brand new!

If your dishwasher was installed by a vendor, call them and have them repair the problem. If it's new as you say, you should have a warranty.

If it was installed by others, then make sure all hoses and drain fittings are correctly installed and not kinked. Also, I have seen situations where a dishwasher was installed after the fact and the plug on the sink drain spur that connects to the dishwasher drain was not removed, blocking the drain port.

Water left in the units top & bottom

From what you describe, the drain hoses are not properly connected.

1. Each drawer has its own drain hose. Each hose should terminate at the drain point with a 'Y' adapter.
2. Inspect the drain point (under the sink where the drain pipes are) to make sure this 'Y' adapter is present. (you should see two drain hoses from the DW). If not present, then the DW drain lines are not installed properly. (Someone took a shortcut and installed the 'Y' adapter behind the DW)
3. If terminated properly, make sure the drain hoses extend upward as they leave the drain point.

It is important the drain lines are connected properly to ensure proper drainage from the DW. Consult the installation manual for complete details.
