Drain water from radiator 2002 tauras


Probably has a cover underneath the radiator.Remove this carefully and remember how to put it back on. The drain is a whitish plug on the driver's side of the radiator. Now when I put my Daughter-in-law's cover back on, I sawed a hole directly underneath the drain plug for future access,which FORD should have already done.don-ohio

The unit is on a hardwood floor and there is water damage to the floor. The unit appears to be dry now. Could it have a leak that can't be seen?


The potential for water leaking to the floor is probably still there. Open the door of the unit, look in the back and you will see a white plate; that is the evaporator. When the unit is running, there is a light frost that forms on the front and back surface of the evaporator; sometimes the frost can get a bit thick because of air laden moisture infiltration or the frequency of door opening. That frost eventually will melt and drain from a drain hole right underneath the evaporator. If that drain hole is plugged up, water will eventually leak out from under the door. Keep that hole clean and patent and also check the state of the water collecting pan underneath the the unit. That might solve your water problem.

Gasket were replaced but still leaks water


If leaking out front of door on freezer, then you have a drain plug that is stopped up or frozen. Drain plug is located in freezer, underneath evap coil, when unit goes into defrost mode, if drain is plugged up, water has no where to go except out thru doors.

Water filter leaks replaced filter with bypass water leaks from drain holes underneath


In the very back of the unit, there is a black rubber drain hose that is supposed to drip into evaporator tray that is mounted on top of the evaporating tray. Check that hose is not plugged and that water is draining in tray.

After i start my l g dishwasher it stops and flashes l e on the start button , and the water wont drain


The LE error is saying that water is "leaking" out of the dishwasher before it is being intentionally pumped out. If you have checked underneath the unit for a real leak, then 99% of the time, your problem is related to a law of physics.

Follow the drain hose from underneath the dishwasher over to where it connects to the drain (normally the disposal) I bet you will find that the dishwasher is connected directly to that drain and not connected through an air gap. The hose is probably routed along the floor with no high point.

The drain hose must have a high point in it somewhere in the run so that a natural siphon does not get created and "pulls" the water out of the dishwasher while it is running.

Best way to fix it is to install a dishwasher air gap (almost free at any real hardware store) but you can also lift the hose and attach it somewhere to (under) the counter. That will prevent the LE error.

HELP WITH WATER LEAK??


If you have turned the water off and it is still leaking out of the freezer side you may have a plugged drain. the drain is there as part of the defrost system to keep modern refrigerators frost free. When the machine goes into defrost and the heater in the freezer comes on it drains out the drain to a pan underneath and the heat from the compressor and the condenser fan underneath the unit evaporate it and the whole process starts all over again. every once in a while something will plug the drain on the bottom of the inside of the freezer side and when the heater kicks on to defrost the refrig the water cant go anywhere but to the bottom of the freezer and seeps out the front at the bottom of the door between the gasket and the refrig. check the drain...because if you have turned off the water and it is still showing up this could very well be your problem. Take the bottom shelves out of the freezer and look to the back and bottom at the middle sometimes you can see the drain and sometimes you have to remove the thin metal panel covering the back bottom half of the freezer,....inspect the drain hole and remove any obstructions or ice build up. if need be pour hot water into the drain to melt any ice that could be causing the obstruction to the drain. and the hot water should drain out of the frige.Write me back and let me know if I can help you further....

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!

Fisher & Paykel Dishwasher leaked


From what you describe, drain water from the top drawer is getting into the bottom drawer or waste water from the disposer is backing up into the bottom drawer.

1. Each drawer has its own drain hose. Each hose should terminate at the drain point with a 'Y' adapter.
2. Inspect the drain point (under the sink where the drain pipes are) to make sure this 'Y' adapter is present. (you should see two drain hoses from the DW). If not present, then the DW drain lines are not installed properly. (Someone took a shortcut and installed the 'Y' adapter behind the DW)
3. If terminated properly, make sure the drain hoses extend upward as they leave the drain point.

It is important the drain lines are connected properly to ensure proper drainage from the DW. Consult the installation manual for complete details.
