The unit needs to be tilted downwards in the rear slightly so that gravity will force the water to flow to the back of the unit and outside.

On the bottom of the unit there is stopper or plug get something to drain the water in and that should be it. But if it's leaking it means that the drain is clopped and it needs to cleaned out and the grills inside need to be vacuumed or use small dust brush to get all the dust off. It is not complicated just take the side of air conditioner off and there a drain hole and just get a strong wire or something thin to get inside to get whatever is clogging it. It would cost to much to get someone in to do it.

This is a single-hose portable unit, not an in-window one.

Ours just started leaking too. Apparently this is some kind of design flaw. There is no way to drain the unit, as the unit is bucketless; condensed water is supposed to be evaporated out the exhaust hose.

Needless to say I'm not very happy about this! I've had it for just over 1 year so will head to Sears to see what they say about it.

Excessive water in rear defrost tray on kenmore Elite bottom freezer refrigerator. Not leaking from ice maker?


You should never have to empty the defrost condensate it's supposed to drain through a drain hole and into a pain below the refrigerator where the fan blows over the water with warm air and re-evaporates it back into the air.

I have a Kenmore Elite Oasis HE top load. The machine sounds like a thunder when it spins, and also a pond of water leaks on the floor.


Check your hoses for leaks or possibly the drain it's draining in is clogged or half clogged or too clogged to accept large amounts of water all at the same time. Not to sure bout the thunder part. Lol

I have an kenmore elite A100E portable air conditioner. I have two questions; 1- It drains water from the back pipe outlet which makes my floor wet. How to collect this drained water to stop it damaging...


Yes is does work as a dehumidifier, when it's in dehumidifier mode. Using just the AC mode, will slow up the collect ion of water some. However, the tank will still need to be drained occasionally. There are 2 ways to train the tank.

1. In to a low sided pan or bowl, capable of holding at least 1 quart of water.

2. Roll the unit to a floor drain or outside to drain the bucket.

Hope this helps and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Periodic water leaking from Kenmore Elite K701


hello Adrian. I am suspicious that the standing drain pipe behind your machine may sometimes over flow. To find out, pack some dry newspaper around the drain hose where it enters the drain line behind the machine. If that newspaper gets wet you will know that the drain is sometimes overflowing. If that is the case, snake that drain or force a garden hose down it and run hot water thru it for ten minutes. J.

My dishwasher won't drain, and leaked out onto my hardwood floor!


I ordered a new hose and the problem is fixed! I probably could have just simply taken the old hose off and flushed it out; but the powdered solution, that is supposed to dissolve, had solidified and clogged the hose in several places. Strangely, it had also made like a filmy flap at both openings. Gross!

Kenmore Elite Calypso won't drain


The most likely thing to cause the code and the leak is the water pump. If the shaft seal on the pump leaks, the water gets into the drain pump motor and shorts it out. The code is telling you there is a high current/amp draw at one of the motors.
You can see if the pump is leaking by tilting the machine back, removing the screws that hold the bottom to the front edge of the machine and looking at the pump. If the pump is leaking, you will need a new pump and possibly a new motor control board.
Post back if you need further instructions and we will walk through the repair.
