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!

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.
Ok hot water being still there and not draining is a clog in your drain line or pump issue. I have not yet brought up the schematic to your unit but on some units there is a clean out filter located down the bottom in which you would clean out the filter careful water does come out when you unscrew the filter on other models that do not have the filter door you would remove the lower panel on the front which would give you access to the pump and the drain lines as well even though if you do find items in the filter you still need to disconnect the drain lines going to and leaving from the pump to assure that nothing is blocking or clogging the flow of water. Im glad you replyed about the hot water still being on the inside definite clog in the drain line or pump or filter issue. If you have any further questions message me back. I await your reply Thanks Rick
This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged
drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and
remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower
front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs,
you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Hope this
helps... Please post back for any further assistance. Daniel
Marco, There are 4 things than can cause the problem. All are solvable.
1. The air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Remove and clean the filter if necessary. 2. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.
3. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.
4. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures (Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to where the air
temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor, onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this problem.
none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the
compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are
5 years old or older.
Hope this helps you to troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.
You are doing the right thing here. Its kinda goes against what your try to do if you evaporate the water that you just took out of the air to cool it?? So you have done the right thing. just keep your filter clean and you will be in good shape. also service the unit before you shut it down for winter and then again just before you start it up for summer and it will give you good service for a long time.. hope this helps .. let me know...

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
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.
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.
Thanks for using FixYa.
Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due
to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses,
knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) &
clogged drain pump & filter.
Also note that dishwashers do not
drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are
designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element
doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water
being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common
reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump
isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s
First check whether the drain is
not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for
blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced
recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the
drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not
been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry
vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything
else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you
have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then
it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or
else revert for further assistance.
