Air conditioners are dehumidifiers as well it's just part of the process so if you are running the a/c in an area of high humidity it will build up an excess amount of water causing it to overflow and run out my suggestion would be to get a hose that will secure in where the stopper goes and either run it outside through the window kit if you have the unit higher than the level of your window or you can run the hose in a 5 gal bucket and just be sure to check it regularly so it doesn't overflow

SOURCE: Getting Error E3 on my portable AC unit.

You need to get on-line and find the service manual for your unit. If the manufacturer doesn't have a down-loadable one, they will usually mail or fax you one. Once you have it, you can identify what the error code is and then work from there. It could be something as simple as a dirty unit. All these units are different in regards to error codes.

SOURCE: Kenmore portable dishwasher not draining

Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.

Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.

Drain valve and/or solenoid Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.

Motor If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced.

Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.

SOURCE: Kohler bathtub drain seems to be disconnected from

Okay, remove 2 phillips head screws at lever handle/overflow.

Pull firmly with much effort and bowing the connecting rod a bit.

Up will come a heavy duty spring on the end of the rod.(prolly a big slimly hair ball too!)

Hope you get the spring, cause that's what works the drain stop.

If spring doesn't come out you'll have to "fish" it out.

Clean everything up real good and flush drain good also now.

The "Secret" now is to put the Lever,rod and spring assembly back in and replace screws and get the lever flipped to the left BEFORE you put the Drain Stop in.

There should be 2 ports in the back or on the side with screw on caps take those caps off and you should see some rubber stoppers when you remove them all of the water will drain out. From what you are saying there should be alot to drain out so be prepared for it to pour out.

The water drain plug is located on the rear. On the bottom left edge next to the cord keeper. You'll need a pan that will fit under the drain hole, before you unscrew the drain plug. Which has a plastic handle.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks

After one year of usage my portable A/C drains on the floor approximately 3pint / hr. Unit was raised so that the water can drain into a container without weting the carpet . This situation needs to be...


This is what the manual says:

When the internal water container is full, the back light on the LCD display flashes. The unit will shut off automatically, beep 15 times, and must be drained before it will restart.

To Drain the Unit: switch off the unit and remove the plug from the wall socket.

• DO NOT MOVE THE UNIT. Doing this can result in water

leakage, damaging your floor or carpet.

• Place the drain pan on the floor under the drain cap.

• Remove the drain cap and the rubber stopper from the

drain, and let the water run out. Partially fill the drain pan,

replace the rubber stopper, and empty the drain pan.

This procedure must be repeated until the unit is empty.

• Replace the rubber stopper and drain cap.

Put plug into the wall socket, and switch the unit on.

The warning signal should be off.

For Continuous Drainage: • Switch off the unit and remove the plug from the electrical outlet.

• Remove the Drain Cap and Rubber Stopper. Drain if necessary.

• Connect a Drain Tube (not included) (20mm / 3/4" inner dimension) on to the water outlet.

• Place the other end in a drain. Make sure the tube is free from twists and bends.

The tube must decline over its entire length.

Model arp-900e wont start keeps popping breaker


Sounds like you have a short or a groud in a fan motor or compressor motor. You can unhook one component at a time and turn it on after each component is disconnected to figure out which one is grounded.
