I am storing a side by side refrigerator untill I can sell it. How do I drain the water out of the hose for the water in the door?? There is a hose about 50' long all coiled up but I can't find how to release the water. Am told it will mildew if I don't get done. Help please.

There's no way I know of to easily drain it.

You might be able to disconnect each side of the water line keeping one end very low to the ground and the other higher. That may allow gravity to siphon the contents out. You may also be able to hook up an air compressor or pump at one end to suck or blow the contents out?

Unfortunately, the water lines are often sealed with no access points except for at each end so doing any of the above may be problematic to attempt.

Refrigerators are not really designed to be stored after being in use.
