High pressure water jets are good, but if you do not have the equipment, a large quantity of very hot water will do as well. This will melt the deposits and flush them down the pipe. I flush my home's kitchen and lavatory drains once a year with a large stewpot full of scalding hot water. This must be done with great care by someone strong enough to keep the pot under control. Wear a long sleeves and pants and a raincoat over to protect from splashes, use heavy mits and pour slowly. Take steps to make sure no children or pets can come near. Make sure your path is completely clear. Failure to take great care can result in a very bad burn. Done regularly, this maintenance can greatly reduce, or even eliminate, blocked waste pipes.

The most effective way to clear the drainage pipes and inspection chambers of these deposits is high pressure water jetting. The high-pressure water spray acts like a sharp knife and cuts the grease off the walls of the pipe. The water used in the process itself creates a high water flow which will flush the sediments down the line.

Is the drainage pipe (for continuous operation) the small clear plastic type, or a big garden hose?


Normally, a 48" section of regular garden hose, with the female connection end intact is all that is needed. The hoses female connect attaches to the mail connection on the rear of the unit. It must slope down and remain straight to drain into a floor drain. Proper drainage relies on gravity.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Water is backing up and dripping out of wall unit. I've checked drainage pipe and its clear. water is not getting into drainage pipe in unit.


The water dripping from evapourator is due to clogging of the cooling pins.where in the condensed water logs into the front portion into the filter,the front pannel and to the wall.If the unit is slightly tilted, this would be reduced.use a good brush and air pressure to clean the fins.If periodical cleaning of the filter is not done,this can happen.

Rinse fault f18


F-18 means the pump is blocked. When the machine fails, there may be an "electrical" smell as the motor has laboured. This is normal. Clean on bottom right corner and you should be fine. Drain pipe clogged. Follow insrtuctions that came with machine to drain using the little pipe bottom right. Then unscrew & clean rotor. pull out wahing machine and check drainage pipe at back is not blocked. Unscrew the drainage pipe from the sink waste and clear out. Also enaure pipe is kept high off floor and is not too long. This will help drainage and prevent pump trying to pump waste water upwards. If the pump is too old or worn out then it needs to be replaced. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Water is seeping from the front of the refrigerator


There is a blockage from the fridge to the compressor in the drainage line. Easiest way to clear is to locate the compressor and find the pipe above the compressor. Blow into the pipe hard until restriction is cleared. Now clean mess inside fridge resulting from blockage being cleared. Back to normal.

i dont know if this is right but your washer might be old or it might need a flu pipe. the other reason is that one of the other pipes like the drainage pipe is blocked or old or rusty and cant let water past it, since your drainage pipe is different from the washing pipe the water stays their and you need to turn the spin cycle on to let it pass through the washing pipe instead of the drainage pipe.

Blockage Maintenance


# Regularly remove any hairs that get trapped in the waste plug hole. # Keep small objects such as combs, medicine bottles and toilet rolls away from places where they could accidentally fall into the toilet. # Regularly flush the wash basin and bath or shower pipe work with hot water and a disinfectant to clear soap residue and prevent build up over time. # Don’t flush away large and disposable items such as sanitary towels, nappies or product wrapping as they can become caught in the drainage pipe. # Do not dispose of waste food scraps and cuttings down the kitchen sink. These are much better composted. If any items do fall into the sink pull the vegetable material out of the plug hole, do not try to poke through as you could impact the blockage making it harder to remove. # Never dispose of cooking fats down the drain system. As they hit cold water they will solidify. If there is absolutely no alternative you should dilute and emulsify the fats by mixing them with hot water and of detergent. Keep the water running for a minute after you have done this to keep a clear water flow. # For complete peace of mind, particularly if you are running a business you can request a regular drain surveys and get your drainage system checked regularly by a CCTV drain inspection service. This will give early warning of any potential blockages and also enables you to keep an eye on the structural condition of the drainage pipe work.
