How do I clean the water line on my side by side? Normally I would say bleach and water to clean the container that holds the water for the water thru door feature, but I'm not sure how the heck to get the bleach into the line. Should the water line hose be replaced as frig ages?

replace the filter if it has one and the other solution is to run a mixture of vinager and water with some bleach added thru the lines. thats what I usually use on mine i feel the water jug with the mixture and run it thru several cups at a time
is it a front loader or top loader? what is the model number? normally you have 3 or more water inlet valves 1 for cold water, 1 for hot water and one for either fabric softener and or bleach, id say (without any specific info) that it is simply a jammed/faulty water inlet valve, or if its a front loader you often get this problem if the water pressure isn't high enough to create the siphon in the dispenser, i dont know why they set up the softener dispenser on front loaders as a siphon when the pre and main wash just wash through normally
There should be a fresh water fill on the outside of the coach. If not then there is a valve that would need to be turned that will allow water to be put into the fresh water tank. If that is the case then it will be a bit more difficult to put bleach into the fresh water tank but not impossible. There will be a pump that draws fresh water out of the tank. You can disconnect the input and output lines. Connect the input line which comes from the fresh water tank to the output side of the pump. Then using a flexible line with a 1/2" pipe thread fitting, connect that to the input side of the pump. Put the loose end of the flexible line into a gallon of bleach and turn the pump on. It will draw the bleach out of the container and pump it into the fresh water holding tank. Now return the plumbing of the pump back to the original configuration. Using the valve system complete filling the fresh water tank with fresh water and allow to sit for a couple of days. Then open the low point drain on the fresh water tank and completely drain. When the coach is not in use make sure the tank is completely drained. There is also a fresh water treatment that you can purchase at your local rv parts department.
one compartment is likely for soap, one for bleach, one for fabric softerner. watch your machine as it goes thru the cycles & notice at which part of the cycle water runs thru each compartment to detrmine which is which. Then you will know what to put where.
I would suspect the water supply to the refrigerator. After it has sat without use over night at least, turn the water off and open the fill line at the refrigerator and place it in a clean container. Turn the water on gently for a very short time then check what you have in the container. More then likely it will contain what you are saying is in the ice. If not then you need to thoroughly clean the freezer and ice maker, my preference is to use a mild soap and bleach solution. The bleach would kill any mold that may be present. Good Luck, Gilshultz
The mouse must have been in one of your product bags...depending on the deterioration of the carcus; you may have already injested some of the decomposing material.
1. Turn off the water supply and remove the top cover
2. Make sure you have rubber glvoes. Drain the holding tank and remove and dispose of the remaining salt tablets/product left in the tank.
3. Yes, clean the tank with a disinfectant (bleach) and rinse thoughly. Be sure to rinse the tank...you don't want high levels of bleach in your supply lines.
4. Fill with new/clean softner tablets and return unit to service.
From left to right as you see.
1 This is for your frontloader soap powder or other detergent.
2 Fabric conditioner or softener. If this is too thick, mix with water to prevent clogging.
3 Detergent for soaking agent. I dont see 'bleach' anywhere
There is an panel, front bottom right which holds your pump filter, unscrew to clean out. But wait. Plug off the mains.
You will see a hose on the left, this is if your water in the tub cannot drain, you can drain it here. Your tub can hold upto 20 litres/4.4 gals.so have a suitable container to collect; carefully remove cap to drain out. Reason why it doesn't drain is because there is a block in your pump (right side) which you must clear.
To keep your pump from probs (a tip which you seldom see) empty all pockets of clothes before putting into machine. I have a non electronic Philco which i dont remember cleaning with hotwash or anything, 10years +
For exteriors do not use solvents or steel wool. Only hot soapy water with a mild non-abrasive cleaning agent, dry with soft towel.
Do not use bleach, if you do you will get a bleaching effect,the new machines use less water, do not volume overload machine.
mix the load to prevent uneven out of balance spin and check feet are level.
