They press on to the barbed connector. Put the tubing in a cup of hot water to make it more flexible just before pushing it in place.

Where is the drainedge for the radioter


For a 2001 Buick Regal GS 3.8 Liter, Supercharged engine:

First, let engine cool some. Second, locate small drainage hole at the bottom left/drivers side, of the radiator. From the bottom of this small drain hole, go straight back toward rear of radiator, then up about 1 1/2 to 2 inches up. (Have a drain pan or pail handy, to catch the old antifreeze.) You'll find a dark colored drain nut. Use a larger, correct sized socket ratchet wrench & loosen this fitting a turn or so, counter clockwise. Old antifreeze will begin to come out the bottom drain hole. The more you loosen the fitting, the faster the fluid flow out. I wouldn't remove the drain plug completely, or you'll loose control of the draining flow rate.

I just changed my anti-freeze just last week. I also changed the 2 large radiator hoses & smaller 2' overflow hose at the same time, as long as I was doing the job. They had never been changed before. I also used new hose clamps & a small packet of "radiator hose grease", from Autozone.. I drove the car up onto front car ramps to make it easier. I used safety jack stands for extra care. " You-Tube" shows some, "how to videos", that are helpful.

The old hose clamps are difficult to get to. (You'll need a few tools, some time & patience.) To get to the upper clamp, near the right/passenger side of the of the car, near the battery, I removed the outer serpentine belt & tension pully. I then removed the factory installed spring tension clamp, with the help of an adjustable battery pliers. The bottom of this hose wasn't too bad to get to. On the left/drivers side of car, remove black air intake box to access upper clamp. Remove the black metal brace bar, the will allow access to the air intake black box.

I also changed the small overflow 2 foot long hose & 2 clamps, that goes from radiator cap area, back to the overflow white plastic tank, close to passenger firewall. I removed the overflow tank to clean it out as well. I drained the fluid & changed the 3 hoses & clamps. I then placed all removed parts back where they belong, including white plastic overflow tank, tension pully & outer serpentine belt, air intake black box & metal diagonal brace, contacting air intake box. I flushed the system with some Prestone Radiator Cleaner & clean water. Start car & get up to temp., then run for about 10 minutes. Let cool, then drain again. I flushed my car at least 2-3 times after this, until the drain water ran clear.

The best price on a 5 year/150,000 mile anti freeze, came from Wal-Mart. I then mixed about 50/50 with Distilled water, as suggested on the bottle. All went well & no leaks! I took my time and did a thorough job. Good luck!

Ok so i have a hose running underneth the airbox running to the neck of the radiator im not sure what hose this is could you help me


The neck of the radiator? This would be the overflow tube that should go to an overflow tank made of plastic (black or clear).

Does this make sense?

MY WHER25 REV. OS. IS LEAKING AT THE HOLE IN THE BOTTOM OF THE SPOUT . i CHANGED THE FILTERS.. IT STILL LEAKED.. I CHECKED THE DRAIN GOING INTO THE P-TRAP .. IT WAS CLEAR .. PLEASE HELP


Remove the faucet spout and unscrew the screw keeping the white plastic piece on the bottom (of the faucet). It's where the red and black tubes enter. Pull out the white plastic with the tubes and clear it of debris (usually placed there when your disposal backs up the black tube, which serves as the filter's drain tube). Once it is cleared of debris, make sure the black rubber washer is back in place (it may be stuck in the faucet, so look for it) and replace the plastic, screw the screw back in, and secure the faucet again. I had this same problem and doing this solved it. Should take about 5 minutes or so. Good luck.

Water is running out inside bottom of mechine


If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:
  1. Air gap device: It is a small device found on most washers to prevent the wash water from from being siphoned into the household water supply. It is located either midway along or at the the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water inlet valve It is usually made of a translucent plastic. If it is deformed or cracked, you need to replace it.
  2. The tube: It is a rubber tube that runs between the water inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it is broken, it can cause a leak.
  3. Inlet spout: Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If broken or loose, it can cause a leak.
During the drain and spin only:
  1. A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Check the entire hose and correct any problem you can find.
All the time:
  1. Hot and cold water fill hoses: Check the hot and cold hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten or replace it.
  2. Main tub seal: It is located between the transmission and the outer tub. Open the the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center.
  3. Pump: You can probably see the leak when the tub is full of water. If it leaks, replace it.
  4. Outer tub: Steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split or be punctured. Consult a qualified appliance technician if it is the culprit.

Machine randomly overfilled for no reason leaking water out the door. all electronics and water valve are suspect. machine cannot be repaired per the repair man. Solution?


You can check out the water level switch. It could be an intermittent problem with the switch. It is a diaphragm like device with a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the tube, and when it reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to begin the appropriate cycle. There is usually a bracket that routes the tube against the tub. Make sure that it is secure. It has been known for the tube to come loose from the bracket and be dangling loose and getting a small hole in it from rubbing something. Make sure that there is no obstruction in the tube and clean out if necessary. The switch can be tested for continuity using a multimeter. If the switch is faulty it must be replaced. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Leaking in back and on sides of machine


the hose for your water pressure switch it clogged not allowing the air pressure in it to increase to the point that the switch tells your water to shut off at the proper level. Tkake the back loose and follow the clear hose up into the control panel, disconnect from pressure switch and either blow or use small blast of compressed air in this tube t clear the clogg. Powder detergents are famous for clogging this line.

I have blew threw the clear tube and it still over flows?


i assume it's a top load and not a front load ..could be bad pressure switch,small hole somewhere in clear pressure switch hose or least likely a hole on inside within air dome area but not through tub to cause leak

If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check the following:
Air-gap device: The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.


The tube:There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.


Inlet spout:Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.


During spin cycle only:
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Look at the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Also, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make.


If the washer leaks all the time, check these:
Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it.


Pump: If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it.

Main tub seal: The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.


Outer tub:The steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, develope a hole in some way. If this happens, you may have to replace the outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.
