I just bought a used GE W/D. I can't hook it up because the 'male' piece at the bottom [drain hole] is missing. The hose has nothing to secure to. Does anybody know the part number for SR2080D?

the drain tube behind the inside rear freezer wall below the drain pan there is plugged,remove rear inner freezer panel you will see the drain tube take a piece of hose and insert it down this drain hole and seal the drain opening as best as possible the blow into the hose to remove blockage,a piece of wire will work too,but the drain is not a straight run and getting a wire down there to remove blockage is difficult,then also put very hot water into the drain hole to help melt ice if this is the blockage problem
Pretty simple operation...here's an overview of the component locations:
Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel. Lift panel out at the bottom and it should fall down. Discharge pump is on the right-hand side. Simply disconnect the hoses from: 1) the tub and from 2) the outbound discharge hose. Then remove all screws holding the pump in place. The electrical is a quick-connect adapter.
Save yourself a mess by draining the assembly first -- just follow the instructions for draining/cleaning the filter in the Use & Care manual
The blockage is not in the hose, it's inside the hose connection drain tube. To clear this clog, you will need an 18" long plastic Zip Tie, sized to fit into the drain hole. You can use something similar, but NO wire coat hangers. Carefully thread the Zip Tie into the hole and continue to firmly, yet gently work it in, until it reaches a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work it past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of Zip Tie. Then slowly pull it back out while rotating it. This will help remove the clog. Once you have pulled it almost all the way out, be prepared for some water to follow.
That should solve the problem for you. Please let me know. Thanks.
The easiest way is to put a hole in the bucket( by using a a hole saw) and attach a pvc fitting(male adapter with a rubber washer and nut) and hook a hose or pvc pipe that will drain the unit of its water. Good Luck
The leak in an air gap is usually caused by a clogged sink discharge line. Most of the time this is connected to the garbage disposal and there is food particulate in the drain hole where the dishwasher drain from the air gap to the garbage disposal connects.
Pull the sink connection hose off and clean the hole thoroughly. You can try testing the dishwasher/ air gap by placing the disconnected hose into a bucket during the pump out period. It should not leak. After this test...reconnect the hose to the sink connection.
If it is NOT connected to the garbage disposal then remove the hose and clean out the hole where the connection is made. This is a common problem and easily resolved by the user.
Elimination Of Problems From Most To Least Likely:
I know you said the drain's not blocked, but i feel obligated to mention it anyways ;)
1. Connection from discharge hose to drain pipe is blocked/corroded. a) Loosen the gear clamp (5/16" Nut Driver/Phillips/Standard) holding the discharge hose to the barbed drain fitting. b) Check that the barbed fitting is not blocked by poking at the opening wth a screwdriver. c) If the barbed connection is Galvanzied and it has gotten heavily corroded, replacement of that fitting is recommended.
2. Discharge hose is blocked/kinked from dishwasher to drain connection. a) After 1b), place discharge end of hose into a bucket and run the dishwasher through a cycle. b) If flow is poor, examine hose for kinking or parts (such as couplings) that may have corroded shut. Removing front panel and using a flashlight will be required for this (1/4" nut driver/phillips) If such corrosion found, 1c). c) If hose and fittings are ok, there may be an inline filter whose screen is clogged or a filter screen where the dishwasher ties into it's discharge line. 3. Pump has failed internally . Usually held in place by large squeeze clamps, screws, gear clamps. Will most likely removal of dishwasher from alcove to repair. Any reputable dealer should stock parts. i.e. Kenmore => Sears N.B. May be under warranty - check. May be cheaper just to get another dishwasher at this point, especially if the dishwasher is more than 10 years old.
hi to remove bra wire from between drums ? you might try this 1st ? if you diconnect water supply hoses and unplug power supply then remove rear panel from machine you will have access to the large rubber drain hose from outer drum down to discharge pump ? ok hose is held by spring wire clips both ends remove clips then hose you may find bra wire either in hose or close to drum drain if you need ? feel inside drom via drain hole ? or probe with a piece of coat hang wire ? you may even find the mysterious missing sock/ thong / etc when you disconnect the hose too?? any debri has to lay in bottom of outer drum and so a little patience will locate them using this method instead of removing the main front door sealto drum for access to same area also with rear panel off you can check belt tension ? hope this helps/inspires you ? best wishes from uk
On some models, their is a female drain hose that you can purchase from your local appliance parts dealer that should be inserted only. Not your traditional clamp type. Runs about $9 dollars or so and tycally has a triangle collar that is connected along with the drain hose. Does this help?
