Run a heat trace line along pipe and insulate to limit freezing. You can check a plumbing or electricial supplier for these supplies. You will need to tell them type of piping material for the right application for your water piping.
Also get some insulation used in unheated areas for more protection.

It is a cable of a specific length you must specify which plugs into 120V, often has a build in thermostat (recommended) and heats up. Randydm12 has given good advice.

Goodman ez-1425 ac copper pipe keeps freezing up

copper pipe freezing on the outside indicates that there is liquid evaporating in the space created by the suction of the compressor
the pipe normally will be insulated to stop atmospheric humidity condensing on the pipe
Suggest that you get in a technician to check gas pressures and ac operation

Staying in hot water

With water rates on the rise, it is costly letting water run at a remote hot water faucet. It makes more sense than ever to insulate exposed hot water pipes in the basement with the foam insulation that's split lengthwise.

As an added benefit, freezing pipes can be avoided during power outages. The hot water pipes freeze sooner than the cold water ones because the freezing point of heated water is closer to 32*F than the freezing point of cold water. Cold water has a depressed freezing point due to dissolved minerals from municipal water treatments. Water that's been heated has fewer contaminants, hence less freezing point depression!

If i insulate my pipes, will it stop them from freezing the water? This problem has been happening a lot this winter, it is colder than usual where I live.

Insulating your pipes won't stop the water from freezing but it will take a much longer time for the water to freeze, so it defintely helps a lot. I would do it if I were you.

Can you wrap tape around pipes

Yes, you can use heat tape on pipes UNLESS they are plastic or PEX. Copper lines - no problem.Heat tape is used to keep lines from freezing, and generally they do a good job at it, IF you get it wrapped around the part that usually freezes. BUT please understand the design purpose of heat tape before using! For example: My kitchen has an overhang that extends about four heet from the foundation that the water lines run through. In -30 F weather, my water lines will freeze up. I initially wrapped heat tape on the lines below the sink and still had freeze up. So I relocated the heat tape to the crawl space and wrapped the pipe as close to the foundation as I could. That solved the problem.

Water pipe feeding this froze, pipe was repaired, unit filled with water, no leaks won't agitate something smells hot or burnt, vibration low noise comes from unit, won't pump wter from tub

remove the water pump. it may be broken by water freezing iside. also make sure you dont use the washer if ambient temp in room is below freezing. freezing will damage water valves,pumps and freeze grease inside the gearcase.
