I would think that the only sources of water would be heavy condensation draining (which would go into the pan, if you had one) OR a possible leak in the inlet line, IF you have an ice cube maker. I would check the inlet line which probably connects to your refrig at the bottom to a magnetic valve (which sometimes leaks and can be replaced pretty inexpensively) and also the line (usually clear plastic) that runs from the valve up to the back of the freezer. It can also crack and/or leak.
Sometimes, if the refrig is too close to whatever is behind it, that will cause heavier condensation. Sorry I can't tell more from your description of the problem.

Found water in the pan under bottom of my 60 gal Rheem Marathon model CMR 75245 electric hotter tank. There is no other source of water goes in the pan. Tank is only 4 yrs old. Is the tank leaking?


Is it sitting in the pan or is it elevated over the pan? It is hard to see the leaking if it is sitting flat in the pan. Check all the connections, top and bottom. Wipe them dry and then run your hand over the connections and feel for water. Also check under the heating element covers for leaks. Good luck!

Frigidaire dishwasher fault code i30


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are receiving an i30 error code on your Frigidaire dishwasher. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 20-30 minutes. Restore power and start your dishwasher. If this does not correct the i30 error code, I suggest you contact your local authorized technician for further assistance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

IDW450 dishwasher starts working then after about 7 minutes stops - beeps about 6 times and stops completely - the dishes are wet but the dish washer tablet door is not open . - can anyone help - then on...


There is probably a leak under the tub., Water drips into a catch pan and sets off the beeping. Take the kick panel off the bottom front and see if there is any water in the pan. If there is you can drain it or blot it. BUT this is an indication of a bigger problem. You might want to run it after you dry the pan and see if you can spot dripping water when using a flashlight.

Portable haier air conditioner drainage. Cannot find drain hole and unable to tilt ac. Water is building up in the bottom of unit.


Here is a thought, received by me from a AC mechanic recently. Window ACs no longer actually drain concensate. Rather, the water is caught in a pan with the idea it will evaporate back into the outside air. The reason for this is the dripping water frequently resulted in the growth of algae below the unit resulting is unsightly stains and sometimes, slippery conditions. Evidently, there were a lot of complaints about being 'dripped on' also. So, AC manufacturers don't put drain holes in the bottom any more. If the pan over fills, it will spill out of many makes. If you want yours to drain, put a hole in the bottom.

Like I said, just a thought.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Our amana bottom freezer refrigerator Model ABB2224DEQ at times leaks onto our kitchen floor. We don't have an ice maker so I am wondering where it would be coming from and what needs to be done to...


This is likely water from the auto defrost operation leaking from the evaporating pan. Sounds like the pan may have a hole in it, or the hose which drains the water into the pan is leaking, The pan is at the very bottom of the unit.

Water leaking from bottom of fridge onto the floor. Not a lot, but thought that the water pan might need emptying - can't find the water pan.


on some models the pan is made on the bottom of the compressor. the heat from it evaporates the water. if its cool in your house it may not get hot enough to do that so this could be where it is coming from.
keep a eye on the temp for a week or two in the fridge part. make sure its not warming up inside. if it seems to be fine your ok.

Water leaking from bottom of refriderator


dear ricurtsmith..
your fridge has a water trap pan underneath it to catch the water from the drain line when your fridge automatic defrost.
either the pan is not in place proper or the pan may not be underneath, period. or pan could be stopped up/need cleaning. or if pan is made of plastic, it could be cracked.
it is located at the bottom of fridge where you see something loos like a grilled vent. remove that bottom piece to get to the drain pan.(it just slides out!!) good luck & hope i was helpful.
