The waste or drain tube is supposed to be looped high at the back to make an air gap.. Some water remains in the Dishwasher and prevents seals from drying out as well as any sewer gases from coming back into the dishwasher..have you checked the drain filter? Pump and hoses for obstructions? Is the house drain limiting the flow coming from the dishwasher? Those are some of the basic checks you will need to make to diagnose the problem.. Your pump may be damaged or something inside the pump casing may be limiting the flow of water of the impellor from rotating.. Hope this gives you a few ideas on how to approach this.. Good luck

Ice cube trays not filling up completely


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
The icemaker is 110v
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER

I have epson tx110 and all the lights keeps on flashing and says general error?


This error means that some mechanical parts of your printer is in trouble. This could be some of the causes:

1. The print head is stuck somewhere or is unable to move because of some blockage in the printer's bay.
2. If you are using a Continuous Ink System, then the tubes might have blocked the print heads from moving.

To resolve, turn OFF your printer. Remove such blockage then turn the printer back ON.

JR

That is a HIGH temperature detect error code.
Check the thermistor, if you measure 0 ohm resistance in the thermistor, replace it.

Press the stop/clear key, start key
and the left copy exposure adjustment
key in the order presented and hold
them down.
Press the stop/clear key.
Enter the number of the maintenance
item to be executed using the copy
exposure adjustment keys or the zoom
+/- keys.
Go to U163 and hit the Start Key, this will reset the trouble code.

BUILT IN SMEG DISH WASHER ADP8132 FILLS WITH WATER THEN DRAINS AND CUTS OUT. TRYED NEW MOTOR AND PCB NO BLOCKAGE NO LEAKS PLEASE HELP


Does the water just disappear down the drain as fast as it fills, with no obvious pumping sounds?

If so, it might just be that the waste hose is routed wrong after it comes out the back of the dishwasher. It needs to loop up to somewhere near the top of the machine before coming back down to go into the drain. (These machines have no outlet valve - they rely on this high point in the hose to keep the water in, then use a pump to push it "over the hump" when they need to drain).

Washer-dryer not emptying


Remove the back pannel ( a whole load of screws i must say )
Then you will see at the bottom on the back of the drum where the filters connects... Remove the clip and check and remove any blockage....

Before opening it is possible to check if a blockage exist is to dicconect the waste pipe from the sink and lay it on the floor... Gravity forces the water to flow to the lowest point.. if no water comes out of the pipe then you definately have a blockage...
