Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn't overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn't working properly, the drain pump isn't working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home's drain lines. First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. If you have checked the drain hose and can't locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

    Went to the dishwasher and listen to the motor and it was making noise like it was working. I checked the drain line from the dishwasher to the garbage disposaland disconnected it. Inspecting the line, I found it clogged so I grab a bowl and started and stopped the dishwasher so that it could go through its draining cycle. The water forced the clogged opened and drained the remaining water out of the dishwasher. Problem solved, thank you.

My kenmore refrigeratot model 58087 has ice in the bottom of the freezer section. I assume this is from a clog somewhere in the automatic defrost lines. How do I get to these lines to clean them?

Unplug the unit! You have to remove the shelves and the rear panel of the freezer. I take two coffee cups filled with water heat them in the microwave for 2-3 minutes and keep pouring them on the ice until you see the drain, keep pouring the hot water at this point and let the hot water sit a little keep doing this until the water drains down if it doesn't drain down then you still have ice in the drain tube or you have a object in it so use compressed air if you can. Use a lot of bath towels to help with catching the water inside the unit while working in the freezer.

My code is E21 how do i fix this without paying for a service call. My warrenty ran out 3 weeks ago imagine that

E21 indicates a drain pump error or slow draining. If it is a clogged filter, you fix this yourself. (Standing water is usually still in the washer with this error.) Unfortunately, if it is something else, a service call may be needed.

Unplug the washer before starting the following procedure.
The first step is to check if your washer has a lower access panel. If it does, then remove the panel. Find the drain motor and the two hoses (drain and washer sump) that connect to it. Have a bucket ready to catch the water from the hoses. Since the hoses are connected by hose clamps you will need a set of pliers to loosen. Remove the hoses and let the water in them drain out. Check for any clogs and check the coin catcher filter (it's inside the main hose) for foreign objects. Remove the blockages. Then check for around and inside the pump (and the impellers) for any object and remove anything that doesn't belong.

If your washer doesn't have an access panel, you can get to the drain motor from the back, bottom or front of the washer. Pull off the panel (usually screws hold it in place) if you are accessing the unit from the front or back. If you go from the bottom, remove the storage drawer and pedestal if you have installed those. Then remove the bolts that hold the drain motor to the washer frame. Remove the wiring harness and the drain and sump hoses. The pump can then be removed and cleaned. Follow the directions above to check for clogs or foreign objects.

Then reassemble the washer (pump, drain motor, hoses, wiring). Replace the panel. Plug the unit back in and see if the unit will drain without the error. (Just try the drain/spin cycle and see if the unit spins rapidly. There is not reason to do a full wash.)

If you add a comment with your Frigidaire washer model number, I'll be glad to give more specific information for additional repair options.

Model A3006F2D. doesn't seem to be draining. is there a drain hole?

N0 there is not drain hole. Newer A/C units throw the condensation water up to the hot condenser coils outside to help cool down the coils.

Water standing in tub

If there is a lot of water sitting inside the applicance, it's possible that the high water float switch has been activated and is preventing the dishwasher from running. Open the door, remove the bottom rack, dip as much water out of the bottom as possible with a shallow ladle or even tupperware container. When that is accomplished, shut the door and try to run a drain cycle. If the unit won't start, you may have to remove more water. You don't have to have the rack in place to run the drain cycle.

Water draining into bottom of freezer and freezing.

Your freezer has a drain that leads to the exterior drain pan beneath the unit. Occasionally this drain can become clogged resulting in standing water inside your freezer,due to line freeze over. In the freezer, standing water will become ice and may result in defrost problems or inadequate coldness.

You will need to Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into the drain line with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog. This will correct the issue.

Ice builds up in freezer bottom pan, not going down the drain tube. Is this an indicator of the defrost timer not working correctly, and if so where is the drfrost timer on a ETIFTTXKT02 model?

Defrost timer is working or there would not be water/ice in the bottom pan (as you describe it.). Check that the drain tube from the pan to the bottom evaproation tray under the refrigerator is clear of restriction.

GE dishwaher leaks with standing water in bottom

Check to make sure regular dish soap did not end up getting inside the dishwasher. This will create a lot of suds that will overflow onto the kitchen floor. Standing water from not draining can mean the drain hose is clogged somewhere or the check valve has something caught in it. If you remove the front kick plate, you will be able to check those.
