Question about Sunterra 450gph Pond Pump

Pump goes on and off

My pump cycles on and off. It use to run whenever plugged in and that controled the on off, of course. Now it will maybe run for 20 min or so shut down and come back on in say 3 or 4 min. I've cleaned it and checked the power source and seemed to be ok. It's not a year old

The picture looks like the Sunterra pump that came with my freeform pond kit I purchased at Aldi's 5-6 years ago, but just had installed this spring. The pond is 4 x 6 x 1 foot or so deep. The problem is the small triangular shaped filter has to be changed constantly. The pond is in the sun, has a large plant in it and 3 goldfish/koi. It used to go a day or two before clogging up, but now it's an hour. The water 'bubble' shrinks down to nothing and I'm afraid my fish aren't getting enough oxygenation to their water.

Does the pump have thermall protection? It sounds like its getting hot and tripping the thermal protection switch in the pump windings.

How I get to the drain pump to check if blocked on Bosh Logixx Variodrawer dishwasher please.


Pull the inlet hose off the drain pump to check for clogs. If this goes into a garbage disposal back flush the pump with a pressurized water source will also work. This means removing the unit from the house of course. Do you hear the drain pump running after a cycle completes?

Whirlpool duet f35 error-suds error


Maybe this will help, but I'm not sure

Condition:
SUDS LOCK (Overdose of Detergent detected during the Wash Cycle)
The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.

Check:
If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle, then a Normal cycle, without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.

Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
Check Wire Harness connectors to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
Check/Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
Check Drain Pump
Check Pressure Switch
Check CCU

Model MAH 7800 drain pump will not run, door locks, tub spins, water drains by gravity


Well your drain pump needs attention for sure. There could be an object lodged against propellers or it may need to be relaced. Try unplugging the connector that goes to the pump and plugging back in. Also try tapping the the motor part of the drain assembly while in spin cycle before replacing. Good luck.

Take off the back of the machine. Locate the water pump, it will have the drain hose attached to it. Remove the water pump and take it apart. You should find your screw and maybe some other things. If the water pump is not damaged reinstall and everything should be working.

It sounds like you've got a defective thermostat.

Do you have a heat pump? Energy savings plans sponsored by utility companies should not affect heat cycles... Only A/C. Could possibly be a problem only if you have a heat pump.

After repairing the pump on our maytag, neptune washer, now the wash cycle will not start, it stays on one cycle, what now maybe done?


Sometimes when the pump goes it can blow a part of the circuit board with it. I would call out an engineer. It could be cheeper in the long run.

Washer will not drain after wash cycle or the spin cycle


check to see if your pump is slightly plugged with a sock or ?

Your top loader should pump out in about a minute and a half when totally full of water.
