No need to remove the back panel on this model. You can access everything by removing the washer cabinet. Here's how:

1. Unplug washing machine.

2. Remove console. This can be accomplished in one of two ways depending on which type of console you have.

a. If the console has removable end caps, the caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the washer. The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front of the washer. There will be a screw under each end cap that you will need to remove.

b. If the console does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under the front corner of each side and push in while lifting up. There is a retaining clip under each side that has to be released.

3. Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer in its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.

4. Under the console will be two large brass colored clips. Take a large flat blade screwdriver and place it in the groove of the clip on the washer top. With the screwdriver firmly in the groove, push away from you towards the back of the washer. This will release the clips.

5. Disconnect the lid switch connector plug. This is the white colored plug on the washer top under the console.

NOTE: The washer will NOT operate with the lid switch connector unplugged. If you wish to attempt to test the washer for leaks with the casing removed, you will need to by-pass the lid switch. This can be accomplished by jumpering the two black wires together at the lid switch receptacle. CAUTION: DO NOT attempt to jumper the wires with the washer plugged in! Attach jumper, then plug the washer in.

6. Remove the washer casing. Open the lid of the washer. Using one hand, grip under the front rim of the washer opening. Do not grab the wash tub, just the casing. Tilt the washer case from the back first towards you, slide forward slightly, and then lift up. The entire case comes off exposing the wash tub and components.

Now, you stated your washer leaks during the rinse cycle. Double check all hose connections on the water pump (located directly in front under the wash tub). The pumps have also been known to start leaking along the seams. NOTE: If the pump leaks, it is NOT serviceable and must be replaced. They do not come apart.


To re-install washer case:

1. With the lid of the washer open, place grasp case under front rim and place it on the washer frame. While looking down through the washer lid opening, make sure the front lip of the case is placed UNDER the washer frame and rocked back onto the frame to ensure that the small cleats on the frame fit into the slotted grooves on the washer case base. If you do not get the case seated correctly it will rattle and vibrate while the washer is in operation.

2. Make the back of the washer fits into the washer casing on each side and reinsert the brass clips. Place the clip into the slot on the back of the washer first, and then forcefully push it into the opening on top of the washer. It will snap back into to place.

3. REINSTALL LID SWITCH CONNECTOR. It is easy to forget. If you do not reconnect it, the washer will not work correctly.

4. Reinstall console.

I know it seems like a lot, but it is an easy process if you take your time and follow the steps as written. Let me know if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: my split air con unit is leaking water from the unit in house

The things that you can check yourself are
is the indoor unit level?
Are the filters clean?
The area the water is draining to free of obstruction?
Is the drain actually draining?
----Get a cup of water and pour it over the indoor coil (please make sure the power is off first please) If the water does drain then it is prolly a bigger problem.

Prolly your unit is short of gas and need a refrigeration tech out to check. That it isnt ice-ing up but you would notice the performance drop.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: drain line obstructed Fujitsu split unit aircon model ASA12ASHTW

The best way to clear the drain line is by using a shop vac and sucking out the blockage and the water. This will make sure all the goop in there comes out. Let me know if you need anything else.

I have a Sunair portable air conditioner, model ACKPSA9 and need a manual or know how to fill the water. Thank Con


air conditioners do not need water in the tank as they remove the moisture from the air and condense it into water
for mobile ac units that would need a collection tank or the water would run onto the floor
window and split systems have a drain hose to the outside
if the unit needs water then it is not an air conditioner but an evaporative cooling system in which case water is pumped a cross a filter that a fan blows air through
now you have to decide which you have

Leaking water from front of 2400btu fujitsu split system into house


Oops. You posted this in "PC laptops" category! With the front of the split system leaking you need to check the exit drain. Something is blocking it. It could even be that spider webs have blocked it (I've seen that before). Clear that out and the system should stop dripping. Otherwise you'll probably need to call your heat pump/air conditioning service repair team. If you live in Auckland or Waikato in NZ Goldstar Heat Pumps are good http://www.goldstarheatpumps.co.nz/. Otherwise try Google for providers in your city.

On the control panel there is a switch that allows you to choose a load size. If you open that panel you will see on the back of that control is small hose. That hose supplies the level sensor with air pressure to sense the level of the water in the machine. Likely the hose has become disconnected, is broken somewhere, or the sensors is bad. Start with simplly removing the cover to the control panel and inspecting the entire hose for disconnection, cracks,splits, etc. If hose is good, ensure there is no blockage at either end. Then suspect sensor/switch if hose is connected and not leaking air or blocked.

LG Gold window a/c unit W18TKM not dehumidifying the air - no water coming out the external hose, any ideas?


Check the pressures of the refrigerant...sounds like it is low which means there is a leak that needs to be located & repaired.

Air con dead


Larger split system air con gets power from the external unit while smaller air con gets power from the internal unit. Can you find any power switch or power socket/plug around the external or internal units?

Water leaking from front right corner - not hoses


The leak is coming from the area of the drain pump, but you will need to remove the lower toe panel directly below the door to sufficiently inspect where the leak may be coming from. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. The following link explains what to look for:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader

Make sure you check all hose connections on the drain pump and make sure the drain pump reservior cap (if equipped) is on tight. If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.
