Septic vs washout tub?


Waste water from the washer is not pumped out but rather is gravity fed down the drain. You cannot drain the water up higher than the washing machine's drain outlet. You would have to cut into the drain pipe - below the level of your washer's drain outlet - and put in a T that will tie into the drain pipe and allow for some type of connection to be made from your washer's drain hose.

When the water is entering the tub it immediately goes out the outflow. The tub will not even fill up a little bit. What could be the problem? thanks


The drain hose outlet must be located higher that any expected water level in the tub. If too low, gravity drains the tub as it is filled. Extend the (a) drain pipe up to the proper level, even if you are using a floor drain to carry away the water. Hope this helps!

I have a GE dehumidifier that i hooked a garden hose to for direct drain. it will work okay for awhile then will only drain into the drain bucket. is there something i can do to ensure that it will drain...


This seems to be a fairly frequent complaint on these GE dehumidifiers, and none of the solutions I've read here or anywhere else have fixed mine. My hose is clear, straight downhill, tight to the nipple with a good gasket, no plugs visible in the nipple, but has always filled the bucket rather than drained through the hose (and it's always bone dry). After two years of this and emptying the bucket, I'm about ready to disassemble it to see if I can fix it but with all of the other unresolved complaints I've seen GE should step up to the plate and post a solution.

My front loading GE washer WSSH300 will not drain.


Don't know if this will help or not, but your owners manual is available at http://genet.geappliances.com/DocSearch/Dispatcher
Water won’t drain
Drain hose is kinked or •
Straighten drain hose and make sure washer is not improperly connected sitting on it. Top of drain outlet should be less than 8 ft. (2.5 m)
above floor. Household drain may • Check household plumbing. You may need to call be clogged a plumber. Plumbing this washer directly to a pipe is hard on the motor. Usually the drain hose elbow is inserted in a stand pipe, meaning the washer would drain water on the floor is the stand pipe is clogged.
Several items can cause the lack of draining.
If you can get to the drain hose, try lowering to a point that it will drain into a bucket. If it drains the system is not clogged. If you advance the timer and the washer drains this maybe the culprit. The motor can overheat and shut off. I would advance the timer to spin and listen for a hum in the motor and then quiet, a sign that the motor has overheated. If the water drains it sounds like the timer is at fault.
I would first make sure the drain hose is properly installed and not kinked somewhere. In earlier GE's the water drain pump could clog, your manual doesn't indicate that as a defect. Regardless timer, motor and pump are in the cycle to empty the washer water.

MY GE PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE HAS JUST STARTED LEAKING. WHAT SHOULD I DO ? GE SMART WATER HEATER GELN0705CO3984


Hello,
You can buy a replacement relief valve at any hardware or home improvement store. It's real name is a T&P valve or temperature and pressure relief valve. It always has a 3/4" inlet and outlet. It is a very easy procedure to replace. You will need a bucket, teflon pipe thread tape, and a 3/4" x 6" black iron or galvanized pipe nipple. To start the valve replacement, turn off the shuttoff valve on the cold water line. Then open the handle on the relief valve and drain water into the bucket, that is, unless you have a pvc pipe coming off of it into a drain floor, then just drain it without the bucket. Be careful, the water is hot! When the water level gets below the relief valve, it will stop draining. Then remove the pvc pipe, if applicable, and thread in the 6" pipe nipple to use as a leverage tool to remove the valve from the water tank. Turn it counter clockwise to remove. Then put teflon tape on the new valve, going from left to right with the valve threads facing downward. Wrap about 3-4 layers all around the threads. Then twist the new valve into the water tank clockwise and using the pipe nipple tighten by hand until very snug and outlet is facing downward, as before. Remove the pipe nipple and install pvc pipe, if applicable. Leave valve handle open and turn on the cold water until the valve starts spitting, then close the relief valve and let it fill up the tank. If you did it correctly, you are now finished! Good luck!

Dishwasher won't drain or seems to drain to other diswasher.


possible blockage at sink pipe where the drain hose connects to. the drain hose is attached to the spout on the pipe. remove the clip holding the drain hose to the spout, remove drain hose gently, put drain hose into a bucket and then turn unit on to a cycle. it should start draining straight away.if it does drain into bucket u have a blockage in the spout. put a small screwdriver into spout to unblock . then put drain hose back onto spout with clip and run a cycle. before i forget when and if the water starts draining into the bucket turn off the unit so u can put the drain hose back on. if u need more help please reply. good luck.

Backup of foul smelling water into the dishwasher


Outlet pipe is partially or completely blocked.

Use a dishwasher cleaner in it, but before you even do that, remove outlet pipe from waste pipe - and clear all the gunk out you can.

I suggest a bucket with disinfectant and washing powder to dissolve the grease.

You may need a drain cleaner down the waste pipe too - & flush with hot water and washing powder.
