The drain is usually in a trough>under the evaporator coils>behind the back panel>inside the freezer compartment. It usually drains into a small tray (via a small tube) at the bottom of the refrigerator. For details and photos to help locate this drain> Refrigerator Defrost Parts .

My Washing machine hotpoint aquarius WDPG 8640 will not take in fabric softener


It is likely that the tray need removed from the machine and the back side of the drain cleaned. Over time the softener can build up and eventually plug off from the back side. So just cleaning the tray won't clear the problem.

Leaking water from back on to floor


This could be that the drain tank at thebottom of the fridge is overflowing. Normally the drain water will evaporate off with the heat from the compressor but if possible it is good to clean and drain the collecting tray in the bottom of the fridge. You must have access to the backside of the fridge and remove the tray which is normally a pulllout. Drain , clean and put it back-- slide it in. Hope you do thei. Also make sure that the freezer setings are normal and not set high. During cold season this can condense more water to overflow the drain. Hope you try., Good day

Fujitsu split system air con leaking inside the house from the unit


The drain pipe must be plugged up or bent. Lift cover of unit and look for water in the tray, find drain hole and remove obstruccion inserting a piece of wire. Be gentle and careful. After the water in the tray drains out, pour a glass of water in the tray to rinse it out and make sure the drain pipe is completely clear.

While you are at it, clean the air filter of the unit.

Good Luck

We have RUUD AC, in second floor , that has a white pvc ope connected to condensate drain. other end of this pipe is inerted into large pipe neanr wall. looks a drain outlet. In the middle of this white...


Hello, W/D here.

There are a couple of things you need to check:
Look at where the drain connects to the A/C unit. There should be another pvc line right next to where the drain connects. This is the clean out/flush line, and is used for adding algeside to the tray internally, which thens go out the drain. Most importantly, there is a 1/8" hole between them, and usually, it's very hard to see. Make sure that this hole is open. If it is plugged, the condensate cannot drain from the unit while the unit is running and will create havoc with your drain system. The 'tee in the drain line is an air vent/vacuum breaker and can be used for a cleanout, but try the little vent hole trick first. Your drain line from the unit should be sloped to your house drain. If you do not have a clean out connection at your unit, then you can clean from the tee to the wall. Put one cup of white vinegar into the tee. It will work as well as bleach, without the corrosiveness of the bleach. If you have a cleanout on the unit, put the vinegar in there, and restart the unit, as the vinegar needs to get flushed by the condensate.
Your tray is designed to catch any leakage, and should drain to the outside. Look for your drain line and clear it. Tray drains generally plug at the ends, and not usually in the middle. You can clean the pan drain with a piece of stiff wire. I like to use electrical solid core wire, #12. Pass it dowh the drain from the pan, and back up the drain from the outside. Chase it with water. Usually the pluggage is either insulation, or dirt dobbers.
Best wishes and regards, W/D
