When is this leak happening? During what part of the program?
Open the bottom front lower door. This is where the filter is located...the filter is attached to the drain pump.
While this is open see if you can see where the leak is coming from.

Unscrew the four screws that hold on the back panel.You will need a light to see inside of the unit. See if you can locate the leak from there.

Use two people to spot check...one in the front and one in the back.

You should be able to see where the laek is.

Please post results.

Water leaking onto the floor after flushing


check around where the tank meets the bowl and see if water appears when you flush and if so you need a new tank gasket. If it's coming from where the toilet meets the floor you will have to change the wax seal underneath. That happens when the toilet rocks and ruins the wax gasket.

I have an LG french door bottom freezer refrigerator. Water is coming out of the back freezer vents and then pooling and freezing on the freezer floor. If we don't remove it periodically it leaks onto the...


This has nothing to do with the ice maker. The defrost drain has frozen over. Inside the freezer you will see that the whole back is a panel. Unplug the unit and gently pry at the top of this panel. It will come forward and then you can lift it out. unplug the fans and take the panel out. You will see the coils. and underneath the coils, the drain pan. Mine was completely filled with ice. I used a hair dryer to melt it and remove the large chunks. Be gentle. Use a turkey baster to remove excess water. Then pour some very hot water in to clear the drain itself.

Water runs out the frezzer side when the door is closed onto the household floor.


Look underneath the fridge and check the drain pan it's probably full. Also check your hoses when you under there. You have a line running from the wall underneath the fridge and up to the water supply system. Check for any lines that might be leaking or have come loose and causing the problem.

A small amount of water is leaking out of the front of the refrigerator onto the floor every day and I can not fine the source of the water. Is there a drain pan and if so where is it? If it is not the...


older fridges drained water into a pan with the compressor in it, thus cooling the compressor and evaporating the water, this is located at the bottom back of the fridge. if this fridge has a water and/or ice dispensor, the water could be leaking from many a place.

106.55244400 leaking water on floor


Hello, sounds to me like you either have a leak on the nut on the water inlet valve or a pinhole leak on the inlet valve body...have come across this many times before...you may not see the leak from the valve because it is very fine spray but it's there...only real way to detect where it is coming from is to pull the valve out switch water on and see where the leak is....either this or you have a blocked drain tube in the refridge but with the info you supplied i would suggest the valve. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck! Mike

10 yr old GE side by side: freezer is leaking


Your drain is frozen up and so every time unit goes into defrost the water refreezes in the freezer's bottom. You either have to shut fridge off completely and let it dethaw or use hot water and an ice pick to hurry up the process. The drain is located in the very back of freezer. You will have to pull out the bottom drawer to see it. Good luck
