Due to pop up style drains they have mechanism in pipes and hair tends to wrap around it and over time it dangles down and slowly builds up blocks it. My tip would be to go underneath and unscrew it from basin and s bend pipe and just remove stuff from that point, just make sure you lay old towel in cabinet to catch all the water from pipe.
The source of that water is from the automatic defrost cycle in the freezer,the water is supposed to run through a drain in the freezer but that drain is blocked so the water is draining into the refrigerator vents and ultimately to the catch basin instead of draining . This tip i wrote will help ya to clear that drain in the freezer http://www1.fixya.com/support/r9945686-check_when_refrig_cools_ok_but_leaks
I have a similar Whirlpool dehumidifier and a similar problem. Have you tried setting it to continuous mode? My understanding was that it would only divert the drainage to a side hose when in the continuous mode.
Something clogging the pump or drain line.
Clean out the drain pump catchment.
- Pull the suction boot off the drain pump, clean out any gookus.
- Blow through the drain hose starting from the connection at the pump.
- If all else checks out, replace the pump. This is how to clean the drain pump catchment:Remove the bottom front panel to see a white plastic catch basin with a removable-by-hand, large facing forward lid (peanut butter container sized) Remove it and clean out.
The water that is produced during a refrigerator's defrost cycle drains into a catch basin behind the interior wall of the unit. The water then drains into a tube which carries the water underneath the refrigerator to a drain pan, where it is evaporated by heat from the coils and the compressor. You should be able to see this tube at the back of the refrigerator.
If any part of this drain system gets blocked, the water is diverted before it reaches the drain pan. It sounds like you have such a blockage. In some refrigerators, you can pull this tube loose at the point where it connects with the catch basin. Blow into the tube and see if it is open. If it is, the blockage is likely in the catch basin inside.
Refrigerators have a defrost water drain that carries water produced during the defrost cycle to the bottom of the refrigerator where it flows into a catch pan. The water is then evaporated by heat from the compressor and refrigerant coils.
Something is likely blocked in your drain system. There is usually a catch basin in the rear of the refrigerator behind the inside lining. From that catch basin, water flows into tubes which usually run down the back of the refrigerator. The drain in the catch basin may be stopped up, or the tube itself could be blocked.
thats what it sounds like to me, chances are your drain hose iether runs along hte floor, or is taped in to the drain pipe securley, perhaps even directly piped into drain hose into dry well?? you definalty creating a siphon when the macine enters teh rinse cycle. you can purchase and "air-gap " from the plumbing supplier/ home improvement store. or just redo your existing drain line
An F21 error code indicate drain problem. Might you want to inspect/clean the drain system from the filter to catch basin to impeller, pump/valve and drain hose. To do this, the bottom/kick panel ahs to be removed. A bit of a messy job so pls be prepared with paper towels and other absorbent materials.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
