Hello
This is the condensate drain line which drains humid water the a/c coil collects.

To clean you can try compressed air,blow through the pipe.Or take pipe apart and flush it out.

Have the unit off when doing this,also clean the collection pan out of debri.

Periodically pour bleach into drain. You should have a primary drain, AND a secondary. Just in case the primary clogs. Usually the secondary is located somewhere very, very obvious that you cold not miss at any occassion. Outside the garage door, somewhere that you would notice water coming out.
The primary is usually hidden. If the primary clogs, the water will come from the secondary and you will notice it and UNclog the primary before the pan overflows and causes damage.

Water leaking in drivers floorboard


Possible that the AC condensation water from the evaporator which has to flow out into the drain pipe to the outlet is clogged or that the hose coupling has come off from the evaporator drain tray.
So look under the dash to the AC section and trace the pipe to find the fault.
However if this is OK then the hot water line to the blower for heater has a leak or a joint fault and leaks at the gland. So you need to remove and connect the pipe fittings to clear the leak.

My Carrier AC is leaking from the inside connection to where the white PVC tubing connects to. The padding inside is soaked and when I press it, it is filled with water. It continuosly drips down water...


If this unit is new more than likely the condesate drain line does not have a deep U shaped "trap"in it. This allows the negative air pressure inside the unit to draw air up thru the drain line holding the water inside the cabinet until the fan shuts off, then the water can drop out of the unit everywhere.

If the system has been in foe some time and has the proper "trap" the drain line could be plugged any where there is a turn in the pipe. It is a messy clean out but it can be done by cutting the straight PVC pipe, right after the screw in fitting and the 90. This will allow you to unscrew the fitting at the unit and clean it out. Sometime there is a gel like clog that grows at this point. Then you can take a wire or compressed air to clean out the rest of the line to the outlet. Next pour hot water thru the PVC and see how it comes out the end. Worst case you will need to pour a solution of hot water and white vinegar to remove any build up.

My ac is spitting watter by the vent, and making noise i think it happends when the fan inside hits the water that acumulates inside is there something i can do to fix this and make the water go out


The AC fan is blowing the water that has condensed on the cooling pipes.It is possible that there is clogging of dirt in the fins of the cooling pipe'
this results in water logging.The filters must be clogged and dirt has accumalated.Use a good air spray or a water jet to clean.The condensed water must flow to the rear of the unit to drain out .{A/C must be fitted slightly tilted.}.Hope this helps.

WATER LEAKING


Water should come out of the back of a wind unit when it is humid out, usually a drain hole. If water is leaking inside from a window unit, check that the outside drail hole is not clogged or maybe it is not tilted downward enough outside (Usually a very slight tilt down toward the outside to help the water drasin out the back outside). Also, if you have excess water forming, you may need to clean the coil. For central air units water should be drippng outside the home via a pipe or tubing and if the drain tube or pipe is clogged with scum that forms inside the pipe water will back up and overflow in the house near the heater/air conditioning unit. Also, some units have a pump to pump the water out and it may not be working.

Water coming from soap compartment. is there someway to clean the dryer fluff from machine


It sounds like the water outlet is blocked. Same happened to me.
Unplug machine from mains.
Remove panel located on the rear near the base of machine.
In the bottom right corner you will see the outlet pipe and the pump.
Remove grey outlet pipe to get better access.
Undo the large jubilee clip where the black pipe joins the drum outlet.
Inside this pipe is a white plastic cage filter.
Check to see if anything is blocking it.

Possible blockage in line or at the nozzle ends. There is a small screen that keeps debris from entering the lines but can get clogged. The screen is plastic and is inside the reservoir at the bottom between the pump and the outlet hose. Remove and clean the screen as needed. If the problem persists there is most likely a clog in the line. Slightly higher pressurized air (more than the washer pump can produce) could clear the clog. Be sure to check the nozzles for blockage too. Good luck to you

Water pressure to main hose has ceased, with water now pouring out of a small outlet pipe at bottom of unit next to fixing for main hose.


Sounds like your outlet at the top has clogged with grit/dirt. Turn the shower off, remover the entire shower head hose from its base (where it screws into the wall or pipe. Turn water back on. If you get a steady flow (as you should) the problem is isolated to the shower head/hose. Detach the shower head from the hose and clean the screen inside, attach hose back on first, try water again, if this flows then your blockage is in the head itself. After removing and cleaning the screen inside the shower head, reattach and run water, this should fix your problem, if not, you may need a new shower head. If the water will not flow to the outlet pipe alone, either your shower switch is broken or you have a serious plumbing problem.
