Water collecting under the machine during a wash which is not due to a leak


I had one that would spin water over the top of the drum during the wash cycle once, even with low water level. There are actually brake shoes/pads that add resistance, so the agitate won't over spin before it changes direction. I don't remember them being too difficult to install.

Why does my baumatic fridge/freezer keep getting iced up


Honestly, it really sounds like your problem in the drain is blocked and is overflowing causing a nightmare. I'm assuming it starts just at the bottom of the back wall just around the first set of drawers. There is a kit that they make that actually resolves this issue. Unfortunatly, after looking it up they actually discontinued that part for your model. Not to worry, I'll tell you how to build on. You'll want to remove the drawers and the shelfs and the back wall. For maximun ease I recommend turning the machine off for a day or two and letting everything thaw out. Once the back is off locate the defrost heater. It will run along the bottom of the evaporator. Now, find the drain hole in the trough below the heater area. Once you;ve done that find an aluminum can and good pair of scissors. Cut a strip that can fit down the drain hole, but not to small or too big. Be sure to make it a decent length. Take one end and sort of wrap it around the defrost heater directly above the drain hole then have the rest of the strip go into the drain. How this works is everytime the machine goes into defrost, this ice will melt and the water will fall to the trough where it will go to the drain. The bad thing is hot water actually freezes faster than cold, but with the aluminum improvised drain heater, heat from the element above will pass downward to the aluminum keeping the water warm enough to not freeze as it goes down the drain and finally out of the machine. Your problem will be a thing of the past. Good luck

Driping water


you have a blocked drain in the freezer.when the machine gets cold ice forms on the evap. coil that's located in the freezer and behind the inside freezer wall.when the machine goes into defrost the heater comes on and melts the ice off of the coil and it drains through the hole under the evap coil and then runs down to where the compressor is and then evaporates from the heat of the compressor and condenser coil,your drain is blocked so the water is now draining onto the floor.use a hair dryer to melt out the bottom draw if it's frozen in,remove it and look at the back wall,if you can't see the drain hole you'll have to remove the back inside wall of the freezer,to get at it,also unplug the machine or shut it down,you don't want to be blowing warm air into the machine or you'll have another problem the air ducts will freeze up.keep heating the drain hole with the hair dryer and any other ice you see,i use a steemer to clear the drain line but if you don't have a steemer you have to get something to push air through the drain like a turkey baster or similar,also 1/4 inch plastic hose like the kind you use on a fish tank works good,you can snake it through the drain line,when you think the drain is clear pour hot water into the hole if it drains through you're done if not keep hitting it with heat and use the turkey baster to try and push whatever is in there out to clear it,then pour hot water until it drains.it usually will take around 30 to 40 minutes to do this but with a steemer i get it done in around 10 to 15 minutes,good luck

Fan inside fridge not blowing


is the ice on the floor of the freezer?if so the freezer drain is blocked,ice is building up and the fan blade is jammed from the ice.when the machine gets cold ice forms on the evap coil in the freezer,when it goes into defrost the heater turns on and melts the ice and the water drains down a hole under the evap coil and the water goes down into a pan where it evaporates from the heat of the compressor and condenser coil but your drain is blocked and the water is leaking onto the floor of the freezer instead of going down the drain,i use a steemer to clear blocked drains but if you don't have a steemer you can use a hair dryer to melt out the ice,on your machine you can pull out the machine from the wall,remove the back bottom panel and unplug it first,then look at the right side,you'll see a plastic drain line with a wire tie around it,that's the drain line,you might have to cut the tie and then pull the drain line down and remove it,now go to the freezer,you have to remove the door and racks and then remove the back inside wall of the freezer,melt out all the ice that you see with the hair dryer,after you melt the ice go to the back and snake a long plastic tie like the one that's on the drain line or if you have a piece of 1/4 inch plastic water line or anything you can think of to snake through the hole where the drain line came off of,i would use plastic,if you use metal be careful not to damage anything,then pour hot water into the drain in the freezer,if it drains out the back hole you're done,if not keep hitting it with heat and if you have a turkey baster or anything that will push air down the hole to clear it and when you think it's clear pour more hot water into the hole until it drains.hope this helps and good luck with your machine.

Water leaking in refrigerator and floor of a 1997 GE top freezer type,model numberTBX22P1


As the only source of water is condensation or melting food, I would check to see if there is a drain hole at the bottom back of the fridge. This hole is to drain any water into the back of the machine where it evaporates. Use a pipe cleaner or similar to poke the muck through the hole and the water will drain away. Keep this hole clean every time you clean your fridge.

ICEU220HA1 ice machine is half full of water - water fills up through drain hole in the tub when cleaning/purging pump


You have a restriction in the drain line beyond the ice machine and the water is backing up into the unit. You can try some Drain-o or snake the drain.

How to change oil in poulan pro 650 series model hp-22 mower


Drain plug is under the motor. tip the hole machine back, (handle lying on ground) put something heavy on handle to hold it down, the plug usually is a 1/2 size wrench. Put a pan under machine to catch the oil. Take the drain plug out, drain oil, put drain plug back in, tighten it, and put machine back on all four wheels. Add oil. Take about 3/4 quarters of a quart. SAE 30 or 10w-30.

Water continues to drain on the spin cycle while filling


there is no actual drain valve, but rather physics to keep water in tub.

The drain system MUST be located HIGHER than the deck fo the machine, with console height being preferred.

Drain during spin cycle is normal, as rinse is intended to also drain away at that time..
