LG airconditioner filling up with water faster than usual

I have a LG model LP1200DXRY8 floor stainding airconditioner, and never had it fill up with water so fast before. The a/c unit went forever before without having to drain it, now it seems I have to drain it twice a day. Anybody's input would be helpful.

I bougth an Uberhaus Airconditioner R410A. It is draining out onto the carpet, while I use the airconditioner, We hadn't attached the drainage tube! Is this supposed to be constantly drainned or does...


If this is the 3-in-1 air conditioner, then you have two options:
1- do you see two drain outlets on the back? one is at the very bottom and has a removable plug and the second should be about half way down also with a removable plug. This air conditioner has a small non-removable tank that will fill up and a red light on the panel will light up and the machine will switch to FAN mode when full. Then you have to roll the machine to a drain and unplug the bottom plug to let it drain out. Not resonable.Probably good for a basement with a drain in the floor, but not on the main floor or 2nd storey floor.

2nd method is to unplug the top drain (Keep the bottom drain plugged) , attach the plastic hose that the machine came with to this drain, find a bucket that is at the same height or below the top drain and let the water drain into the bucket. Then when it gets about 3/4 of the way full, empty the bucket.This way the airconditioner mode and the humidifier mode will work continously.
This is the way this type of air conditioner is made.

Hope that helps

The floor board of my mitsubishi Galant fills up with water when you run the airconditioner


Its the evaporator case filling up with condensation. Its caused by the drain tube being clogged. If you raise up the passenger side of your car and look at the bottom of the heater case you will find a rubber tube hang down. If you take a pipe cleaner and wiggle it into the tube and clean it out it should drain.

Water is all over the floor from the washing machine. What could be the problem


water pump, hose or tub.. depends when you noticed water. After it was filled? during draining or filling? Also a clogged drain will cause backwash. Holes in tub from rust will leak out water, water pump cracked can leak water or hoses to drain or to washer not sealed or cracked. Overfill from a faulty fill valve can also do that, but then you'd see lots of water all obver on that one.

Air conditioner will run for about 3 hours then stops because its full - it seems to fill constantly fast??


Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. This is normal depending on the amount of humididty in the air the faster it will fill. What you could do is run an external drain line to drain the water while its filling so you don't have to keep dumping the fill pan.

I recently moved. After re-connecting my LG Fridge I noticed that you can hear the water run for several seconds before it starts to fill the glass with water. What could be the cause of this?


Usually a small leak in the water line from water valve to the water filter.
I have seen when moving a ref the movers catch the plastic water line on the back of the box on the home door to the outside and damage it.

Pull out the Ref. and inspect the tubing.

Be sure to protect your floor.

Tub filling with water after cycle is finshed


If your washer fills with water, usually slowly, after the cycle is over you have a inlet water valve which is not shutting off completely. LG usually uses a separate valve for the hot and cold. If you turn off the valve where the hose comes from the house and observe for continued water fill, first one, the reopen it, then shut off the other you should be able to see which (hot or cold) is the culprit. If you post your exact model number I should be able to list the part numbers for you. The inlet valves I am speaking of are the part where the hoses connect onto your machine.

I have an LG washing machine model WF-T755A After washing completed, if water not turned off at taps, the unit slowly fills up with water. The last time causing it to overflow and flood the floor


Water inlet valve is not sealing off 100%. Replace inlet valve (the part where the hose attached to the machine). didn't find that exact model listed so couldn't give you a part number. Usually LG's have a separate valve for the cold and the hot. If you turn off one valve where hoses connect to household plumbing you should be able to figure out if it is the hot or cold. (most often it is the cold) Leave both valves off when not using washer until fixed. (note: usually on LG washers, if you have unit connected to power and the door closed, if it fills with water as your machine did, the water level switch will trip and automatically pump the water out, even if washer is not in use and the power is "off".)

Leaky float valve


Teresa, the water fill is usually a timed fill and the float assy. is a safety device to cut power to the fill valve in the event the dishwasher keeps filling. ( In most models). Sounds like your initial fill is just above the float lever actuator and dripping. Check the level of the dishwasher to make sure that the water is not higher toward the front. Catriver..post back.
