Question about Windchaser PAC9 Air Conditioner

A lot of H2O and Alarm

I never have to drain my unit until the end of summer but right after I cleaned my filters and drained the unit recently I've been having problems. It seems to run fine for about a half hour and then the alarm comes on. I then drain quite a bit of water out and then the alarm goes off. I turn it on and again runs fine for about a half hour and the same thing happens again. It's been going on for quite a few days. It hasn't been humid either just hot. Any ideas? Thanks!

You may have a drain sensor problem. If your machanical you can try to tie the sensor together to see if this allows the unit to run, if so, replace the sensor.

Our WM2016CW machine's drain hose has a wire mesh filter on the end of it. The drain hose then is attached to a drain pipe which used to be connected to an old sink (no longer there). Is this mesh

This is not needed, It has been put in place maybe because of a tendency to get blockages in your drains? These machines break up the particles a lot to assist in removing them and resulting in less pump blockages so what used to collect in older machines pumps now goes down the drain.

I have a kenmore elite he 3 front load getting f error 02. it runs fine until the end of the cycle will not drain or spin.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F02 is a drain error in your Kenmore washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display suds and then F02. The first thing that should be done is cleaning the drain hose and the drain pump filter, you can take out three torx screws from the bottom front panel and then clean the area completely, lift up the cap to clean the filter. If the error returns then check the drain pump if it is not working then replacing the pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My dehumidifier is leaking out the bottom on the opposite side of the hose connection. I have checked the hose connection, the water bucket and cleaned the filter. The unit was purchased last summer and...

I suspect the drain hole or tube is clogged and needs to be cleaned out. Turn the unit OFF and remove the bucket. Look for a drain hole or tube at the top, where you removed the bucket. Using an 18" long, plastic Zip Tie (or something similar, that's flexible. NO wire coat hangers) that will fit into the hole or tube. Carefully insert it as far as you can, You will come to a bend in the tube, but try to gingerly move it past the bend. Once you have gotten it as far as the Zip Tie will allow, slowly remove it, while rotating it. This will dislodge any clogs. Be prepared for water to follow, once the Zip Tie is removed.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem, Lynn..

Should I be getting a lot of water draining down the drain tube? I never used the unit until now and. It started pouring water out of it today. So I didn't know if that is normal for it to drain a lot of...

Yes, you get a lot of water from the condensate that accumulates on the air handler finns. My house unit during the summer generates a gallon in two hours during the hot summer months. The water run off is dependent on the humidity.

Display flashes e-13 will not drain

Hi tmittiga,

Check the drain hoses and pump That code is for a longer than normal drain if it did not drain it would not let you open the door,  You need to clean the filter. Remove the circular panel on the front right put a little screw driver in the hole and twist the access panel will pop off. Then you will need to twist the handle of the filter and pull it out you will find what is stopping the unit from draining in there very common. Also have a lot of towels handy all the water in the unit will come out when you pull the filter.

GFCI alarm stays on

Open your drain valve under the unit to break any air lock that will have gotten there when you drained the tub.

Buckets of water leaking but the reservoir is dry!!!!

If you have cleaned the air filters then that is the first step. Next you want to check the condenser coil. That is the coil that is outside. If it is dirty you will have a low charge situation which could cause lots of condensation. Also if the condenser coil on the outside is clean and you are getting lots of water than you my have low charge of refridgerant. If that is the case you will need a professional to come and charge the unit and find the leak. Did you check to see that the unit is level. Because is should drain to the outside. The unit should be installed in a way that the water drains to the outside.

MY 25062500 Kenmore Elite spins and clicks but won't drain.

I followed the advice from one of your postings about the Calypso pump, leaning the washer back and removing the bottom access panel. (Be sure to disconnect AC power first!!!). Heeding the warning about "lots of water" -maybe 10-15 gallons!!!-I removed the back access panel and loosened the drain hose, then I put a pie plate beneath it to pool the H2O as it rushed out, cranked up the shop vac undid the hose and let it rip. I filled my shop vac 3 times!). Then I tipped the washer back removed the the pump which is on the right, opened it up and cleaned out the impeller. It works like a champ now. Thank you for your help!!

Coffee maker doesn't brew full pot

you must have a filter and coffee in the basket for a full drain.the weight of the water is enough to open the basket when its full but as your trail run ended the final amount of water is not enough to open drain drop. with filter and coffee in it there is enough weight to keep drain drop open so all water can drain!
