Please be more specific on what device you want to work: type and model number are needed, without then we're just guessing.
If you referring to an oven then in all models the bottom is removable - all you will need to do is to slide it out.
If you are referring o a washer/dryer the you will have to disassemble it completely and remove the drum to access its bottom of the tub. This is a very fiddly job that should be left to a pro - he will also need to replace the front gasket which is clearly defective.

This morning I woke up to Lake Superior on my bedroom floor under my Commercial Cool CPRB09XC7 Portable Unit. I read the help center stuff saying I either had a clogged drain, or a cracked pan... how do I...

It's rather easy to do, supersonic. To find a crack or hole on the water collection bucket. remove it from the unit an visually inspect the bottom and sides for signs of crack or a hole. If you don't see anything, place it in a bath tub or large sink and fill it half full. If you can raise up off the bottom of the tub or sink, by about 1/2", so much the better. Make sure the sink or tub drain is closed. Allow it to set there for 10 minutes.

In the meantime. check the drain hole or tube for clogs. You will need an 18" long, plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers, thought) that will fit into the drain hole or tube. You will see the drain hole or tube, once the bucket has been removed. Carefully, insert the plastic Zip Tie into the drain hole or tube and continue to push it in, until you reach the bend in the tubing. Gingerly, work it past this bend, until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Now, slowly remove the Zip Tie while rotating (twisting) it. This will break up any clogs. When the Zip Tie has almost been totally removed, be prepared for some water to follow.


See, I said it was rather easy to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know how it worked out for you. Thanks.

Not draining all the way

Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. Gently tip the unit to the rear and block it up on something solid so that the front of the machine is high enough up that you can reach under the the front of the machine. I use THREE 2x4" blocks nailed together with blocks under BOTH front legs. The pump is in the right front corner of the base. Grasp the pump pulley and see that it turns freely. You will also be turning the motor but that is fine. If it turns freely start the fill cycle and let it fill until there is about 8 inches of water in the tub. Have someone select spin and then WATCH the pump pulley. Make sure it is not intermittently stopping or that the pump drive belt is not slipping. If all of this checks good the next step is to drop the drain hose and see if the water in the tub will drain by gravity at a pretty good rate. If it does not drain rapidly with the drain hose below the wash tub with water in it then there is something in the bottom of the Tub blocking the drain hole. <br /> You will have to remove the front panel by remove the 2 phillips head screws near the bottom front corners. Then pull the front cover toward you for a little over 30 degress and remove the panel. There are spring 2 clips at the top of the panel your disengaging. <br /> Remove the TUB drain hose from the bottom of the wash tub and check in the hole for any obstructions. Next remove the hose from the top of the pump and check the pump impeller. Using both hands... one on the pump pulley and one finger in the pump top hole hold the impeller and turn the pump drive pulley. It should NOT slip. If it is slipping you will have to change the pump. <br /> That is pretty much it for trouble shooting a drain problem other than making sure the drive belt is ok. If you can not clear an obstruction then the top of the machine has to be opened and the inner wash tub has to be removed. I wil help you with that IF you end up with somehing between the inner and outer wash tub blocking the drain hole. Just respond here and I will get back to you. <br /> <br /> Parts diagram for pump Item 28 and washing machine: <a href=""></a><br /> <br /> Thanks for choosing FixYa.<br /> <br /> Kelly <br /> <br /> <br />

Hi my washer does not drain properly. I think it used to pump the water out then spin the tub, but now the tube spins slowly when it is trying to pump the water out. Could something inside the transmission...

I would start with the simple possiblities first.
Remove the front cover (look for 2 phillips screws at the bottom of the front cover) Once you pull the screws, pull the bottom of the front cover forward until it disengages the two top retainer clips. This will expose the interior of the machine.
The pump is at the bottom right and has the hose from the drum attached and the other hose goes out the back of the machine.
The pump is opaque plastic and you can see if there's something jammed in the pump ( like a small sock). If it's "sucked a sock" it will jam the pump and will cause the drive belts (under the machine) to burn, stretch and not pump the water out. You can replace the belts by simply reaching under the machine and moving the electric motor a little.
If you've cleared the pump and changed the belts, try running the machine through a cycle with the front cover off and see if you've solved the problem..
with Maytag, this is usually the solution... If you're still not draining, you may have a small clothing article in between the inner tub and the outer tub... this will eventually block the drain on the outer tub and prevent water from getting pumped out..
You can use a straightened out coat hanger with a small hook bent on one end, take the top onf the machine loose (2 machine bolts hold the front corners down and tip it back away from the machine case. This will allow you to take the top cover off the outer drum exposing the space between the inner and outer drums. Take your "fishing rod" coat hanger and fish between the two drums on the right side near the drain hole... Most times you can snag and remove the blockage and pull it out.
Hope this solves your issue.. please let us know if we can help you further ...

Put in new drain pump still won't drain

Something is blocking water from tub to pump? Did you check that? socks and other small items get over the side of the inner tub and down to the outer tub drain hole.
You don't say if the pump is belt driven or has its own electric motor. If the latter, is it getting power during the beginning of the Spin cycle?

It is leaking, how do I get it off to replace seals

first turn off water to house or bathroom,you will need Hex key set (Allen Wrench Set) and a pair of channel locks and a Phillip and Flat head screw driver, place something over the drain line so that no parts fall down drain then you will notice under the handle you will see either a hole or a small piece of plastic that that you can pluck out with a flathead screw driver thats where you will find the allen key screw its very small, once you remove that you can remove the front have of the handle wiggle it off, then take your channel locks and remove the thin nut that holds the big round silver part down, you will then remove the stem that the handle was attached to You can then pull out the divertor and take it with you to home depotand either replace the whole thing under $20 or find the parts under $10

Smoking washer

once you get the front panel off check the drain pump while your in there right now get a flashlight and look very closely at the holes in the tub for something like a nail or screwhead or something small enough to have slipped down in one of the holes of the inner tub and be jamming it now when you check the drin pump be warned there will be water still in the pump and tub so put down a bunch of towels

Kenmore front loader

There's no easy way of getting something out of between the tubs without removing the rubber door seal from the tub. It's a pain in the rear to get it to go back on too, because of the retaining spring that holds it in place. Are you sure the screw is between the tubs and not stuck behind one of the was tub fins? Most small items like screws will eventually find their way into the drain line and get caught in the drain pump strainer. Since you can't see the screw, it may actually be trapped behind one of the fins. One way of knowing is to roll the inner basket with one hand and listen. If you hear something rattling around it's somewhere in or on the inner tub. The outer tub (or shell) does not move. You can also look through the inner tub holes with a flashlight while turning it slowly to see if you can see anything between the wash tub and shell. Usually, water and gravity will force anything lying in the tub shell into the drain line. Let me know if this helps you.
