Water on base of the refigerator

Each morning I have about a bowl of water on the base of refrigerator, is that coming from a leaky condensation hose ? I have the same problem in that water collects in the bottom of the freezer side of the fridge/freezer side by side model.

When i turn on the washer it won't start& water keeps flowing into washing machine. does the water flows or not suppose to flow into the washing machine from the inlet valve?


water into a washing machine is controlled by a tube in the side of the bowl up to a pressure switch
as the water level rises in the bowl, pressure in the switch is built up until it overcomes the setting that you have made for a water level on the wash size selection switch
at this point it turns off the inlet solenoid switch and starts the wash cycle
If the water solenoid is burnt out then water will continue to come in and over flow the bowl but it should be washing as well
If the water is not stopping then check for a disconnected hose to the switch or ma hose full of water
failing all that get a washing machine mechanic in

Washer pump stay's running all the time won't shut off so it can fill with water


Could be a blocked pressure chamber not allowing the pressure switch to drop out. More likely (depending on the model) the flood safety in the base has been activate, pull the machine forward and then tip it towards you and see if any water runs out from underneath. If it does and once all the water has been cleared from the base the machine should work ok, but you will need to trace the leak or it will activate again, likely faults are a tear in the door gasket, leaky inlet valve or hose, leaky plumbing behind the machine or a leaky dispenser.
hope this helps

The machine has recently developed an 'out of balance' problem and has started leaking water on to the floor. I am wondering if it could be a problem with the water level sensor allowing too much...


WEL THE PROBLEM THAT IS CAUSING THE LEAKING OF THE WATER IS SIMPLY THE VALVE HOSE COS THAT IS THE ONLY THING THAT CAN MAKE THE WATER 2 BE COMING OUT OF THE MACHINE BUT WEN U CHECK THE VALVE HOSE IF IS NOT IT THEN U CALL UR TECHNI9CIAN 2 RUN A CHECK ON IT BUT MOST ESPECIALLY CONCENTRATE ON THE VALVE HOSE

This morning i turn on the washer and there was no water coming in to it


Turn off water to washer; disconnect hose from washer, and check for any debris in hose or where the hose connects to washer. put hose inside of washing machine and turn the water to the hose on, to flush out anything that might be in the hose; if no water check other end of hose for blockage; if water comes out of hose , call repairman.

Water will not drain cannot open door


The possible problems here are blockages or pump failure. Blockages are the more likely explanation but pumps can fail. If the washing machine will not empty the water out you may also not be able to open the door on some washing machines although these days it's much rarer to have a pneumatic lock on the door due to cost cutting (if a washing machine has a pneumatic door safety lock a rubber hose is connected to the door interlock from the pressure chamber bottle on the tub - water in the tub forces air up this tube and locks the door, which is released when the water is pumped out and the air pressure drops).
Some washing machines have a filter at the front of the machine that can be checked for blockages. Sometimes the filter is hidden behind a removable trim or panel at the base of the front panel. If your washing machine has a water pump filter and a filter drain hose you should be able to drain the water from the washing machine into a bowl without moving the washing machine. Open the pump filter flap and pull the small drain hose forward. Take the bung out and drain into a bowl. It's likely to be painstakingly slow but at least you don't have to try and pull out a heavy washing machine full of washing and water.
If your washing machine doesn't have a pump filter, or it has a pump filter but no draining hose then it's a bit trickier. To drain the washing machine, you will need to remove the drain hose from the drain pipe at the back of the washing machine, and lower it into a bowl or bucket. Many plumbers now plumb the drain hose into the U bend directly under the sink instead of a separate waste pipe at the back of the washer. If yours is connected directly to the u-bend, you can usually unscrew it easily. Remember though, that with the pipe disconnected from the U bend, any water poured down the sink will flood out into the cupboard until the hose is reconnected.

Once you have drained the water, you need to check for blockages in the pump by unscrewing the pump filter. If none is found, sometimes a blockage can occur in the plastic connector that the drain hose is connected to at the sink end (if connected this way)
Once you have the drain hose disconnected and lowered into a bowl or bucket the water should siphon out as long as the pipe is low enough. You are likely to get several bowls full of water from the washing machine. If little or no water comes out then it may be blocked by an item of clothing like a sock and it won't be possible to empty the machine this way or it is going to be a long process.
Once the last bit of water has drained out, the washing machine may now spin as the safety system for preventing a spin while water is in the machine will now recognize the water has gone and allow a spin. Keep the pipe low down and in the bowl or bucket and put the washing machine on a spin only program. Note, this last step is not strictly necessary as once drained, the door should open. However, you might prefer to try to spin a few more bowls of water out.
Clearly if you put more water into the machine it is likely to fail again until the fault is rectified but these instructions should at least get the clothes out.
Other possible obstructions could be inside the sump hose leading to the water pump. Many Hotpoint washing machines have a filter inside the sump hose which gets blocked. Finally, the pump itself can be faulty.

My Fisher and Paykel mw511 intermittently will not fill with cold water. The bowl spins slowly as if it should be filling with water and I can hear a pump but no water comes out. I swapped the hoses and...


Cold water valve problems with F&P machines are common. Replacing the cold valve is the most likely remedy.
It's not good policy to use the hot valve on the cold inlet because (we are told) they are different in their tolerance of high water pressure. (don't shoot the messenger!!)
As you've changed the valves, you've already seen that the problem can be removed...
Good luck.....Nomess

Water overflowing and not cutting off.


The water overflowing problem could be one of three possible problems.
Water fill valve
Pressure level switch
Hose coming from the drum to the pressure switch.
Here is an easy way to check all three.
While the machine is on with water filling up quickly unplug. If water is still going in then replace the water filler valve. (In 20 years i only seen this happen once!)
Open the top panel so you can get to the water level switch. There will be a hose hookup to it.
Make sure there is water in the drum in this test. Disconnect the hose from the level switch. (you can turn off machine for this test) Blow thru the hose and notice if you hear bubbles going in the drum/water. If you do then good. If you dont then the problem was the hose came off the drum. Make sure it is securely attached because sometimes when it spins it might come off. If you do hear bubbles then blow again, pinch hose. Then reconnect to the pressure switch. You create air to the pressure switch. It should now shut the water off at the lowest setting. if it still doesnt shut off replace the pressure level switch. Sometimes i do this trick and it starts working.

this is alot of info, if you need clarifying let me know, i am slowly getting better explaining but will get better later thanks hope this was helpful

Washing machine


you almost certainly have a blocked filter .Unplug the machine , take the screws out from the back you will see a black hose coming from the tub to the pump, this is the filter if the machine is still full of water get yourself a washing up bowl and lower the grey waste pipe into the bowl and gravity should let the water out, raise the pipe when bowl is full.If no water comes out like that tilt the machine forward and put the bowl under the black hose undo the clip with pliers and slowly take the hose off water will flow when full push hose back up and empty the bowl keep doing this until empty , then remove blockage. Getting someone to hold the machine while you do this will be much easier.
