    We are also having the problem of the unit not draining. Supposedly the water is supposed to evaporate. We've installed it properly and at an angle. Any suggestions out there?

Hi my F &P dishdrawer unit (DD603) won't drain

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

When i run the ac water ,from the front? Its a FAC106P1A the back hole is draining ok?

Glad to hear the drain hole is clear and functioning as it should. Now, all you need to do is adjust the downward tilt at the rear of the unit to 1/4" to 1/2". That way the water will flow to the back and drain, before it completely fills up and water blows out the front.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My ac is spitting out water in the front and making a loud noise

Your noise is probably your fan hitting water. First try to tilt the ac to slant to the outside. If this is done water should drain to the outside if not your drain hole is blocked from the front to the back you can see this if you remove the unit and look at the front coil housing you will see a very small weep hole clean it out and use a water hose to clean the front coil and the back coil. good luck

My ac throws water back into the house when running to long, water builds and does not leak out of unit,do i need to drill a hole on the bottom of unit and if so where is compressor so i dont puncture it.

sounds like your condensate drain is stopping up or not draining properly. I would check and make sure the unit's drain is open and water is draining.

Also it's possible that the AC itself needs to be tilted (just slightly back in order for the water to drain better. Sometimes people will make sure the unit is installed perfectly level for cosmetic purposes not realizing that the water needs to drain out the back of the AC.

good luck!

Both drain hole are blocked & the water is

Remove the cabinet: take out bucket and remove all visible screws; sometimes the plastic cabinet parts also snap together or the top actually has plastic hooks that engage so it has to be slid front or back 1/2" - just be very careful after you remove all screws to determine what is still holding it together BEFORE applying any force.

Once the cabinet is off, the coils are exposed in the front, and the drain pan is under then. Be careful to not damage the coils or bend them. Flush/blow into drain tube or snake with flexible wire to open then, clean out all sludge and lint, and check to make sure drains still open, then reassemble.

Kenmore AC 58067081. Have water draining out front. Think it's clogged, but where are the drain holes. Nothing in manual... I've taken off the front grill, and shop vac'd up the water sitting in the bottom...

If you can slide the unit out, there is a drain tube or drain hole from the front tray under the coil that directs the water into the rear of the unit to drain out the hole. That tube needs to be blown out or flushed. It's most likley plugged. You only need to add the drain pipe if you want to direct the drain water away from where it drips now.

My Air Conditioner Drain is plugged. Where is the

-- open the driver's door
-- locate where the air conditioner blower box is attached to the passenger side of the firewall - see photo #1 - look to the immediate right at the top of the gas pedal arm
-- condensation flows toward the front of the vehicle through the firewall at the leftmost edge of the air conditioner blower box - drain channel
-- open the hood and stand next to the front wheel on the driver's side
-- look down at the firewall over the battery and to the passenger side of the brake master cylinder - see photo #2
-- locate the small diameter metal lines running horizontally and attached to the engine compartment firewall
-- locate the hole in the engine compartment firewall panel behind the small diameter metal brake lines
-- this hole leads to the drain opening in the air conditioner blower box mounted in the passenger compartment
-- follow the brake lines as they run from under the vehicle and turn toward the front wheel on the driver's side
-- locate the hole in the engine compartment panel behind the brake lines
-- insert a short length of stiff wire into the hole through the engine compartment panel to unblock the drain hole

Mothers AC unit

That has nothing to do with the water. Sounds to me like it needs cleanning, (the water is not drainning toward the back of the unit) ,,(dirty filter, which its trying to **** air anywhere it can even thru the drain hole, or not enough slope, leanning toward the back so gravity can flow the water to the back of the coil! Thank you-very-much!
