    i was endlessly searching for any info on a trane furnace model xe90
    i saw where people were discussing this model here
    the problem is it is full of water
    old solution was to take three clear tubes off of this white box #d330909po1 and dump it out (suggested by previous home owner)
    problem grew this year, more water, approx 2.5 gallon and still comming
    is there another way to drain system
    ive got the system working every five hours by dumping all hoses and turning power in system and thermostat on and off until system ignites
    also previously mentioned part (white box) is leaking due to frustration and contact with wall
    any advise welcome

    Welcome KZMFA:
    The furnace is known as a 'condensing furnace' and it should have a drain on it. Maybe it is stopped up. There should also be a condensate pump sitting next to the furnace; its about the size of a shoebox and has an electric wire running to it.
    If you can locate the condensate pump, make sure it has power to it and the float switch inside the box works. Check to see that the condensate drain line is not stopped up (blow the condensate backward through the line, which will probably free it up).
    Merry Christmas
