If it is an automatic defrost refrigerator, the defrost water is supposed to be collected in a tray inside the bottom to be evaporated gradually. You may find that the tray is damaged or missing or out of place.

SOURCE: frigidaire refrigerator leaking water inside refrigerator

There is a plastic panel inside the frigidaire looking at the underside of the freezer inside the refrigerator compartment which holds the thermostate dial and the light fixture. remove the four 1/4 in hex head screws holding the assembly. pull the panel toward the front. you will expose the drain hose connection you can let it dangle from the plug wires or remove the panel completely, I worked with mine in place. look at the back funnel shape drain. just in front of that see a rectangular styroform collar which should be snug fit to match the underside. clean and dry all. there is a divider between the two funnel compartments, mine was separated between the plastic and the styroform. I used kitchen and bath tub caulking to seal the gap. and a little around the rectangle shape that fits to the underside. plug the wire back in if disconnected. reassemble the panel. that may fix it. good luck.

SOURCE: Kenmore refrigerator (model 106.78187891) leaking inside

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.

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.

SOURCE: GE Profile Arctica refrigerator - water is leaking

Turn off the water supply and check for cracked or broken water tubing/line. Make certain that there is teflon (white) tape on threads connecting water inlet hose from shut off valve at wall to water valve at refrigerator. If there is no apparent damage to tubing or hose, then your problem may be with a water valve solenoid that is not seating/closing tightly. Replace the water valve assembly, if necessary.

Note: If plastic tubing is damaged, etc., you can splice the tubing with a "coupler" and/or more tubing purchased from Home Depot or Lowe's.

SOURCE: Refrigerator has water dripping inside the unit down the back

The problem is the drain is clogged. Remove the back panel in your freezer and at the bottom of the evaporator coil you will see a hole about ½” in diameter this is the drain tube. You might need to use some warm water to melt the ice and then run a wire being very careful not to puncture the hose and run it down the tube to free up the drain. This tube travel down to the bottom of your refrigerator to a pan sometimes located on top of the compressor or somewhere else down there. It collects the water there to evaporate. You can enter your model # at for a diagram or illustration of your refrigerator. Not all models are available.

I have an LHD6594EBL dehumidifier that won't run and it keeps saying the bucket is full but the bucket is empty, we have a hose attached and don't use the bucket,

Sue, if you haven't noticed any water draining from the hose recently, it may be that the hose connection and tubing of the unit are clogged and the drained water pressure is causing the unit to show "Bucket Full." Also, if the bucket is not properly in place, whether you use the drain hose or not, it will cause the unit to stop functioning. You know how to correct that, so I won't go into detail on that issue.

To unclog the drain, you will need an 18" long, plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers though) that will fit into the hose connection. TURN THE UNIT OFF AND UNPLUG IT. Then carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to push it in until you reach the bend in the tubing. You will have to carefully work it past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Now, while rotating it, slowly pull it out and be prepared for some water to follow.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

With this model is there a way to attach a hose to it so that I can leave it running continuously while the hose is draining into drainage hole in my basement? m7dh65b2a

Yes, there is a way to do it. As a matter of fact, your model (now discontinued) came with a short section of hose. However, you can still use a short 5' section of garden hose and achieve the same results. To find the hose connection (if you don't have your Owners Manual) remove the bucket and you should see what looks like a hose connection (which it is) behind where the bucket sits in the unit. If it is not there, inspect the back of the humidifier for a small 2"x 2" pop-out compartment door. Inside of that is the hose connection. Remember, dehumidifiers do not have pumps to pump the water out, they rely on gravity for water to flow through and out of the hose.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks

Heat gauge goes up to red, water, anitfreeze and poil all right. only goes up to top when heater is not running

When the heater is running you increase the flow of hot water providing more opportunity for it to cool down. You may have a blockage in one of the hoses or in the radiator core. A radiator flush may take care of the problem. Try the flush before proceeding with anything more costly.

Bosch dishwasher E23 message

E-23 message indicates that that the drain hose or draining of water is not carried out effectively. Remove filter cover at bottom of dishwater. Using a sponge/cloth remove any excess water that may be standing in the drain hole area - be careful that there may be glass/bones/other sharp pieces that may hinder the draining process. Use a torch to see any visisble obstacle-remove obstacle/particle. Run the impeller with your hand to check freedom of movement. The impeller should run smoothly. Remove drain pipe from terminal point and look in to check any visible blockage. Check that there are no kinks. You may have to suction/siphon out water manually (Can be done via mouth but be careful not to **** in any water or debris)- have a bucket nearby to allow water to flow into bucket. Replace hose into drain pipe. Replace filter cover. Mix two/three teaspoons of bicarb and one cup of white vinegar in a plastic container-there will be some fizz- and place in dishwasher. Close door and run the shortest cycle. Remember to apply slight pressure to door when turning machine on for its cycle. Remove pressure when machine begins to work-this is noticeable after a minute. Look at the timer as this is a good indication.

Water left in the bottom of a hobart (kit aid) dishwasher

Drain valve not opening, kinked or blocked drain hose. Remove the hose from the sink plumbing and look for debris. try running the drain hose into a bucket to eliminate a domestice plumbing issue, but hold onto it when it starts draining, or you will have a wet kitchen. Timer contacts may not be opening drain valve.

No water in bucket when AC tells me its full

remove the drain bucket and look inside. there should be a hose that runs from the evaperator to the drain bucket. if you can blow air through hose to see if it is clogged. or try to take casing off and pour a little bleach/water mixture down tube , it probably has some mold built up in it

Our KitchenAid just started leaking. it is coming from the front ice dispenser on door. seems many people are having this problem. there is also "snow" on ice maker and bucket. and the temperature...

Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

The excess frost on the ice maker and bucket can be caused by the ice chute door not closing all the way or a leaky door gasket letting air in.

Code E20 appeared machine unable to drain, emptied water by hose at bottom of machine now unable to excess filter to check for any objects struck in filter any clues

Am giving you details of another machine, Frigidaire Affi, but you will surely find it useful. E20 is the same.

Plug off the mains. First drain out all your water by lowering the exit hose into a bucket or drain. You have to look for screws below the front kick-panel, the panel comes down & out. (You may find the drain hose here, on left) The pump is on the right side. Be prepared for dirty water. Inside the big flexible tube (coming from the tub bottom) is the filter, be prepared to find all sorts of junk here, clean out. Examine your pump also, clean out the impeller. Carefully refit all. Your machine would be fine. Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.
