Ice buckets don't normally drain into the hot tub water. They should drain externally. The drain pipe will go through the cabinet and exit the bottom close to the floor.... or at least that's how all the ice buckets I've encountered drain.

Ian.

    The bucket should drain through the air control of one of the nearest jets. The jets will turn 1/4 turn to shut off. make sure it is open. If that doesn't work the round cap on the drain will thread off, put an air comressor hose to it and blow it out. You should see bubbles come out of the jet. There is also a check valve on the line sometimes debris gets in the line and blocks the check valve. The cabinet should open and you will be able to follow the 3/8" line to the jet body. When draining the tub it is helpful to add "drain prep" to the ice bucket to keep the check valve functioning properly.

Water is draining from hot tub after its filled & dont know why


Hi Mary,sounds like your drain stopper may not be closing tight.Try removing the stopper by turning it counter clockwise,then jam a small rag in the drain as tight as you can to stop the water and fill the tub.If it still leaks then the drain plug where the stopper goes may have to be re-sealed or one of the jets may have a leak.If the tub is over a ceiling do not keep re-filling the tub you will cause major water damage to the rooms below.

Not draining


Remove the lower front panel to gain access to the inside and bottom of your washer. You will see a drain filter between the bottom of your tup and the pump. Before you remove it you will need to hand bail the water out of your tub. Twist the drain filter counter clockwise to remove and clean it out. Note: It is very difficult to get all the water out of your tub by hand bailing so some water will come out once you remove this drain filter. I used a palstic trash bag and put it under the drain filter so when I removed it I caught the remaining water. 9 times out of 10 it is a dirty filter not allowing the washer to drain out and many times you will get a message (SUD) on the display panel. It thinks it is over sudsing and wont drain. I hope this helps you.

Washer not entering rinse cycle tube in front near filter won't drain water no kinks in hose


You may have to remove and clean out your drain filter located inside the cabinet between the bottome of the drum and the pump motor. Make sure you hand bail the water out of your drum prior to removing the drain filter. Your model may have a shut-off valve between the drain filter and the tub, if so turn it to the OFF position to stop the water flow. If you do have this shut-off valve you will not have to hand bail the water out of your tub. After you remove, clean and reinstall the drain filter, be sure to turn the valve back to the ON position.

Doesn't drain water and spin


It sounds like your drain pump is either clogged or bad. Bail out as much water as you can with a cup and then check the pump. There will probably be something in the pump stopping the impellor blades. There will also be alot of water so make sure you have towels and/or a bucket when you take the pump off.

How do you drain the spa?


There is probably a drain valve somewhere near the control panel ... forgetabout it ... too slow.

Best way is to get a small pump and pump it away. Next best is wet dry (shop vac). My favorite is siphon ... dont have to buy anything or drag anything out ... only a hose. By the time my water is out ... I have had time to do the necessary surface cleaning and waxing.

My washer is not draining. I used to be able to reset it and it would work but now it wont start on any setting and is full of water. Is there anything i can try.


Hi,
If your Maytag washer is not draining, follow these procedures to find out what is the problem.Set the timer in the spin cycle and pull the knob to turn the washer on. If the washer motor doesn't run, check the following parts.



The wall outlet: Make sure that there are about 120 volts present at the wall outlet. Connect a good working hair dryer to see if it works.If the hair dryer works ok, then the problem has to be in the washer. If the hair dryer doesn't work, then look for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.


The lid or door switch : The lid switch is a safety device use to stop the motor from running if the washer door is opened during the agitation or spin cycles. A bad lid switch could be the reason for your washer not draining.

The pump : Check for obstructions inside of the pump and inside of the tub.
Check the pump impeller, the pump belt, check the drain hose for any kinks. Any problems in these parts could be the cause for the Maytag washer not draining.
Lower the drain hose to a bucket to see if the water drains out. If the water won’t drain or just trickles out, most likely there is an obstruction on the pump or inside of the tub and that could cause the washer not draining.
To check the pump, remove the front panel, lean the washer against the wall and bail the water out with a plastic container.
To check the pump, remove the pump belt and turn the pump pulley to make sure that the pulley is turning freely.
Put a couple towels near the pump to catch any water from the pump. Remove the tub to pump hose at and check inside of the pump for any obstruction. If you find an obstruction remove it.
If you don’t find anything, reinstall the hose and remove the hose at the tub, and check for obstructions.
A Maytag washer not draining could be cause simply by a kink drain hose.
You need to make sure that when you replace the pump, you adjust the belts properly.

We have a dreammaker spa, how do we drain it? the model is Fantasy


The Fantasy has a drain located in the toekick of the spa. You have to first remove the drain cap, attach a hose if you wish, spin the outer black ring counter clockwise to start the water flow, then pull the outer ring out away from the tub to increase the drain to full flow.
I understand that a screw driver is often needed to pull the outer ring out to achieve full flow. Therefore, I suggest another method. Take a garden hose and place it in front of the jet while the spa jets are on. This will force water flow thru the hose and prime the hose. Once you see water running from the other end of the hose, drop the hose in front of the spa jet into the footwell and as long as the loose end is lower than the end in the footwell, a siphon will drain the spa as fast as the spa drain will. Remember to turn off electric to the spa once you have established a siphon. You may have to bucket the last bit of water in the footwell. Goodluck.

My icemaker isn't working. There's no water in the trays and it doesn't sound like it's trying. The model is tbx18ci.


Not sure what setup your ice maker has to let it know when the ice tray is full, but some ice makers have a bail that goes up with rising ice levels. When the ice bucket fills up, the ice maker shuts down.

Lifting the bail up all the way until it catches on a small ledge turns this type ice maker off. If ice is allowed to stack in the bucket too high, or is shoved back as someone scooped out ice, the bail may inadvertently have been pushed onto the ledge.

Bottom line; check whatever method your ice maker uses to turn off ice production when the bucket is full to see if it is in the OFF position.
