Re: why does the ice bucket not drain into the hot tub!
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.

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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
The REGULAR CYCLE button turns the drain pump on or off. The REGULAR LED will turn on when the pump is on. This feature can be used to drain the tub. You could get a bucket and lay the hose on the fllor. Gravity will drain it down.
