How to Clean Out a Clogged Drain Line on Your A/C System

It is very common for the drain line on your A/C system to get clogged from time to time. This will cause the water to build up in the drain pan located directly under the evaporator coil. This water will eventually spill over and leak through a small overflow hole in the pan and/or directly into your a/c system and onto the floor or, worse yet, through your ceiling if your unit is located upstairs or in the attic.
It is typically fairly simple to clean out the drain. One of the easiest ways is with the use of a Wet/Dry vacuum.....the stronger the better. If you know where the drain line terminates outside the house, place the end of your vacuum hose over the drain. To achieve a stronger vacuum, I recommend placing a large plastic bag or a wet rag around the end of the hose attached to your drain.....this will block off the air gaps.
Another way to clean out your drain is by cutting the drain line no closer than 4" from the drain pan......preferrably between the trap and the unit. Do not cut close to any fitting as you will need at least an inch of pipe to put on a coupling or rubber hose. Prior to cutting your pipe, I recommend you identify what type of pipe you have including Outer Diameter of the pipe and make sure you can get the fittings or rubber tubing you will need to put it all back together. Okay, now you can cut the pipe, place a coupling or rubber hose over the end that is leading to the outside, place your garden hose nozzle in the fitting/hose and blast out the pipe. I suggest using a rag to wrap around the area of the nozzle and fitting/hose as you will get some dripping and possible some splashing. If the drain is clogged, you will feel strong back pressure as you spray, but once the clog breaks free, you will feel the water flowing freely through the pipe with little back pressure. Now you can use either a fitting (coupling & glue) or you can put it back together using a rubber hose and some hose clamps. Make sure your fittings are tight so as not to create a water leak in your house. The advantage to using a rubber hose is the ease of which you can access your drain again in the future. The disadvantage is the potential for leakage if you use a hose that is too large or fail to properly tighten the hose clamps.
You can always try to snake out the drain, but I find this to be the most cumbersome and difficult way to clear a drain..........Personally, I have snaked out a drain only about 3 times in my 20 years in the field. And of those 3 times, they were the most stubborn of all blockages.
I've seen some people make the mistake of removing the drain trap from their system believing that they can eliminate future cleanouts by removing the most common location of blockages. Do not make this mistake. The drain trap prevents air from being sucked into your drain (and your a/c) from the outside through the drain line. Also, in many cases, without the drain trap, the water will not be able to drain due to the strong suction of air being drawn through the pipe.

Please let us know if you found this tip to be very helpful to you as you take on clearing that clogged air conditioning drain line yourself. You can do it! :-)
Don't forget the most important component of your A/C - The Air Filter! Keep it in Place and Keep it Clean! :-)

2005 Chevy venture van evaporator coil drain clogged..what's the easiest way to get to it?

dreain is located under the hood in engine compartment on firewall area on passenger side of vehicle, look for a rubber looking hose down low on the firewall, normally you can remove hose and clean drain by blowing air in tube or sometimes crrap collects in the rubber tube, tube should pull right off, i have sneeped off end of the rubber tube so it has a bigger hole to drain and not plug up again

LG washer getting an OE error. I have opened the pump and drained the water as well as ckeaned the filter...still not working propperly.

OE means your machine has failed to drain within 10 minutes. There are a few posibilities. Your drain hose could be kinked or clogged causing the machine not to drain. Try using a shop vac to remove the water from the end of the drain hose. If a shop vac won't **** out the water either, you have a clog somewhere ing the drain hose, of the hose from the tub to the pump. If it will drain the water you need a new pump. If there is no water in the machine then the problem is either the pressure switch, the hose going to the pressure switch, of the control board. The pressure switch is on the back by the control board. You will see a black rubber hose going attached to it. Remove it and see if you can blow through it. If you cant it is clogged somewhere. If it is not clogged then the most likely cause is your pressure switch and next the control board.

Wont drain


The Hmming could say the pump works just fine. But I'm sure the not draining is caused a Valve in the Pump being dis-aligned or something. Try to contact service repair guys, or call and describe the fault :)

HI Dear water from dishwasher is leaking from

there is a cloged line between the air gap and the disposal (if you have one) or the drain under the sink.
you will need to remove the pipe and flush out with water. this is usually a rubber hose. most of the time, the clog is at the disposal where the rubber hose connects.
you should be able to see the clog once you remove the rubber hose. clean this out ( I use popsickle sticks) once cleaned out, reinstall the hose and try your dishwasher.

LG WM2010CW filter drain no draining

In all likelihood the rubber drain hose is clogged. I had the same problem with my LG front loader. The hose was clogged with sand and dirt almost the entire length of the hose. The following solution is far simpler than taking the dryer apart to clear the drain hose. Besides I figure this same thing could keep reoccurring with all the sand and dirt we get in our clothes here in East Texas.

I purchased about 4 feet of 3/16 inch OD vinyl tubing and adapted it to fit on the end of a garden hose. The adapter gizmo included a valve so I could control the water flow and not give myself a bath. A picture of the gizmo is included below. Make sure that when you connect the water hose to the faucet that the faucet valve is just slightly opened and that the gizmo valve is closed. Using the gizmo is straight forward. First remove the drain filter and than insert the vinyl tubing in the end of the rubber drain hose and slowly open the valve on the gizmo. Make sure you have a large pan or bucket underneath the drain hose to catch the debris and water. Slowly advance the tubing up inside the hose until it won’t go any further. By this time water will also be running out of the drain filter cavity which will indicate the clog has been removed. Continue back flushing for a few more seconds to assure all the debris has been cleared, than clean up and you’re finished.

Clogged pump on Affinity Washer

Exactly the same problem. Washed a small area rug that appeared to have pretty much disintegrated. Machine would not drain. Got the same e 20 code. Checked the drain hose, and it was fine. Reamed the house drain just to be sure. Drum appears to have drained, but now the motor runs, and no water enters the machine. Both water hoses are flowing. No further error codes. Nada.
