Rear window washers work in all temperatures. Front washers work only when outside temps are above 0 ! Once temps are below zero there is nothing!!!


Sounds like you got it. Water is freezing up the wiper motor or wiper transmission at a certain temp due to water leakage in what is supposed to be a sealed area. (inside wiper motor, wiper trans linkage). "SOUNDS LIKE" water may have seeped in the moer seal & froze it or stripped the gears of the wipers? Good Luck Frank M

Small amount of water drips down from back/center top inside frig.


it sounds like the drain is blocked in the freezer.unplug it,pull everything out of the freezer,remove the back inside wall of the freezer,melt out all ice with hair dryer,next you'll see a hole under the evap coil,that's the drain hole,you have to clear the drain line,i use a steemer to do this,if you don't have a steemer you need something that will blow through the line like a turkey baster or something like that,keep heating up the area around the drain opening,also you can heat up the ceiling in the fridge section with the hair dryer,open the fridge door,in the back middle where the ceiling and back wall meet heat up this area,this is where the drain runs into the back wall,when you think the drain is clear pour a half cup of hot water into the hole,if it drains you're done,if not keep at it ubtil you free it up.

Have hot/cold water pipes coming outside from roofspace in house to garage for washer/dryer. Already had two bursts inside garage and machine and electrics destroyed. New machine installed after...


Insulation only slows down the transfer of heat (cold), it does not stop it. If it is below freezing and the water in any pipe is not moving, it will eventually freeze. Most major industrial supply houses like McMaster-Carr or Grainger in the US, carry pipe tracing tape. It comes in various lengths and you secure it to the pipe under the insulation, plug it in and many types have integral thermostats that keep the pipe above freezing. If you have a washing machine, you will have to consider the lines to the washer valves, both hot & cold and any other areas in the washer that may hold water like the pump and the discharge hoses.
Was this washer always outdoors?

Leaks water from the top resevoire


Either your fill tank is clogged, or your washer seal is cracked. You will need to remove the top of your Bunn to access this area. In the resevoir you will see a large nut with a drain hole. First try clearing the hole with a tooth pick and pour water in the basin. If it flows you have good drainage. Now, with the top still removed, pour water in the basin while checking for leaks. If a leak is present you should remove your drain nut and inspect the clear white looking washer on the underside. If it is cracked you can replace it with a gasket from Bunn. If you are tight on time and cash, a non rubber heat proof water hose gasket will suffice until yours arrives from Bunn. Replace and re-tighten the basin and drain nut (do not over tighten) .

Water leaks out front


I had exactly the same problem with my Kenmore Ultrawash. I thought the leaking might be coming from the seals around the door, but found that it was leaking from the top as described. I removed the air vent cover on the inside of the door and found that it and the vent area had a great deal of what appeared to be dissolved paper. At first I thought perhaps this was somehow remenents of some kind of air filter, but after reading the post here, came to conclude this was foreign matter. I believe what happended is we at some time washed jars or something with lables on it and this stuff accummulated inside the air vent area. I think in a normal case, when the washer is running, water is mostly stopped from going into the air vent area by the hatched cover, but inevitably some water would get thru. This would be ok normally, because the water would just hit the vent area and probably just fall back into the washer. With all the debris stuck in the vent area and on the cover, I suspect the water was not able to exit the vent area or was hitting the debris and causing the water to jet out the opening to the front - hence the water coming out the vent and pouring down the front. Once I cleaned out the vent area and the cover from the debris, I replaced the cover and ran the washer with no water leaking anymore.

I'm so glad you posted your finding - it gave something to look into, and turned out to be the same source of the problem. You saved me a service call.

Drain pipe under house frozen still


Try going to your local elect supply house. Buy some elect heat tape. You can cut it to lenght and put a plug on the end. Wrap it around the pipe. Put some insulation over it and plug it in. Give it some time as it dosent put out a lot of heat.
