Run a wire thru it no doubt it is plugged with crud

Posted on May 02, 2016

Testimonial: "I have tried that idea with the wire however it goes in a short distance and feels like it hits a bend in the drain tube. Is it recommended to remove the rubber seal and if so is it difficult to re-install?"

How to clean out the drain, water collecting in one of the vegatable bins


Freezer /fridge water/ice in fridge and or freezer

Usually due to CONDENSATION due to bad door seals or a plugged evaporator drain line? Can use a soft flexable tubing and very hot water to clean it out. Bad door seals usually need replacement, but u can use a blow dryer and something to pry it closer to the door wall while blowing hot air on to it. To create a seal, to test for bad door seals place a dollar bill in between the door and wall of fridge where it closes. Then slide out the dollar bill with door closed. It should offer some resistance and not be easy to pull out.
Most all fridges have a drain. Look inside your fridge for a "V" shaped channel with a small hole. This hole leads to a tube and a small pan which sits on top of your refrigerator's compressor. The defrost cycle causes water to run into the channel, down the tube, and then it generally evaporates with the heat of the hot condenser/compressor.
However, if that tube is clogged with food crumbs, particles , debris etc, you will have to clear it to get back to a normal mode of operation. A toothpick, pipecleaner, straw or a cotton bud can often do the trick.
Even a frost free freezer will still ice up at times in the areas away from the heated defrost area and the drain line can freeze. This icing causes the pipe work to the compressor to ice over or sweat and cause a puddle. Or if the drainage has frozen over, it will need to be de-iced. ( usually the line is under the freezer bottom plate covering. Towards the back of the unit) And there is another inside the fridge area also.
Give the freezer a good overnight defrost until it's totally clear of ice in addition to making sure the drain is clear to the pan at the back and then restart the freezer.

Water not draining into bucket and leaking on floor


Unplug the unit and remove the water collection container. Using a flash light, look into the inside of the unit where the collection container was. There should be a plastic or rubber tube or just a hole where the water would drain into the container. Does it appear clogged? If not, carefully use a 12" long Zip Tie that will fit into the hose or the hole and carefully and slowly run the Zip Tie into it as far as you can. While rotating the Tie, pull it back out. If this area was clogged, it should dislodge the clog and the water should start draining as it should.

Hope this helped solve our problem. Please let me know.

Water collects in gasket that surround front door


Many F/L washers, but not all, have a moulded channel or hole in the door seal rubber to drain that water back into the drum. It would seem that yours doesn't have one, or it's blocked. I hope that helps...Good luck....Nomess

Hi, rear footwell is filling up with water behind drivers seat. seems to be happening after heavy rain. Not sure if door seal problem or bung thing being clogged up under battery as some sites seem to...


It's probably coming from the sunroof drains being clogged.

Open the front door, look closely, you will see a rubber tube sticking out 1 inch. Cut off the tips so the tube is wide open.

Water fills under the vegitable tray


either condensation from bad door seals, or the evaporator coil drain is clogged (when it goes into defrost cycle, the water drains down to a pan under the fridge to evaporaet. if the tube is blocked, water collects).

De error code


Hi
"dE" means that the door hasn't been closed properly. Check the inner seals of the washing machine particuarly at the bottom where water can get clogged. Also check the rubber seal around the front door to see if it has popped out or out of alignment. Also, "DE" in full letters can mean that the drain needs to be cleaned. Switch off the washing machine, pull out the flap on the bottom LH front of the machine, find the water tube and drain the water out of the LG. Then unlock and inspect the actual plastic tray/grid when twisted to unlock and pull out. There should also be a "drain" function on the main dial as a general maintenance option. Make sure you do this to keep your machine going.
Dont forget to rate this please if this solution works. Many thanks.

Frigidaire Front Load Washer


most washer door seals when fitted correctly have drain holes at the bottom that allow water to drain from the rings as you call them, this may not be one of those seals and the problem is annoying but there really is no actual cure as such apart from wiping it out after each wash to check if the door seal does have drain holes but is fitted wrong, look round the inner lip closest to the spinning drum to see if there are any holes, maybe higher up or near the top, if there are then it may be possible the seal was fitted wrong (if its not the factory original) the cure then is to replace the door seal and fit correctly some door seals have a large drain hole that is at the bottom that goes into the bottom of the drum (you can't see the pipe normally) this hole maybe blocked if thats the case try prodding it clear with something that wont damage the rubber (use common sense here) hope i have been of some help
