My Kenmore Elite Oasis HE washing machine constantly default to OL which indicates the machine OVERLOADED, but is isn't. The won't drain properly and shuts off leaving my clothes extremely wet.

The OL code also means that the motor is working too hard to spin the tub. This could mean that the tub has shifted on the shaft, debris is inside the mechanism or that the shaft has developed rust on it (increasing the friction between the drum and the shaft). Other problems could be the RPS sensor (tub speed) or the stator is cracked.

First check for debris under the wash plate. Remove the cap from the center of the wash plate then remove the bolt and plate. Next can you grab the spin basket at the top and move the it up about 1/2" or 3/4" freely? If you can't move the basket, then the basket to shaft connection is suspect.

If those aren't the problem, you'll need to disassemble things and check the rotor and stator for damage. Replace any damaged parts.

One other check is to run the washer when empty. That will confirm that the OL isn't due to too many clothes or too much detergent.

I hope this helps.

72 johnson 50hp will not cool

If your water pump is OK, check the thermostat by removing it (under a 3 screw cover on the cylinder head) and starting the motor. You should get a geyser of water from there. Before it (the water) gets hot, put your thumb over the geyser and bleed out any air/exhaust. If you get lots of bubbles you have a bad head gasket, or base gasket or exhaust baffle/ side plate. No way to tell which, so start with the easiest (the baffle) and work to the hardest.

Can't get dirt devil to go

There are several things to check if this type of automatic pool cleaner stops moving. It is typically a blockage in the flapper area. Turn your pump off, remove the cleaner from the pool, and turn in over to view the flapper. The flapper should move freely and their should be no obvious stones, twigs or other debris clogging this area. If you see debris and can't remove it with your fingers, remove the base plate (plate where the debris goes when vacuuming). Using a small flat headed screwdriver, push on one of
the two tabs located on the side of the base plate. Release the plate and remove the flapper. You can then clean it out. You should also check your skimmer and pump baskets and empty them if they are full.

My above ground pool vacuum does not move. It sounds like it is working, but it just sits in one spot.

With these pool cleaners, the common cause of this problem is issues with the flapper. With the pump off, remove the cleaner from the pool and check the flapper for any signs of damage or debris that could be causing problems with movement. It should move freely and their should be no obvious stones, twigs or other debris clogging this area. If you see debris, simply remove it. If you see debris that can't easily be reached with your fingers, you will need to remove the plate where the debris goes when vacuuming. Use a small flat headed screwdriver to push on one of the two tabs located on the side of the base plate. Release the plate, remove the flapper, and remove the debris. Reattach your plate and try your cleaner again.

Grinding sound during agitation cycle on my Maytag Performa

Its probably you stator plate and rotor. But you need special tools for this repair. There a spring that is under 200 pounds of pressure and if you take the screws off that hold the plate its going to fly into you face if your dont use the special tools to depress the spring. Is it more of a clanking kinda of noise? DOes it olnly happen with heavy loads? Try this out. Fill the washer with water only. and get it into a wash cycle with water only. If there is no noise then put in like a load of towels. A heavy load. Now if you hear the noise now then its for sure you stator plate and rotor..hope this helps, but like i said you need those special tools to do this repair or injury can result from the spring part.

Master 110 torpedo heater will not start , kerosene type

Odds are, your air pump is locked up. Remove the cover on the back of the fan motor, remove the pump cover and carefully remove the air pump rotor and blades. If the motor spins freely and will start when plugged in, the pump housing plates probably have a bit of corrosion on them. Lightly clean the pump housing end plates with fine grit sandpaper, wipe clean and re-assemble. Should fix the problem. Does the breaker trip when this happens?

Lights keep flashing

Have you have checked the waste pipe is not kinked and raised to about level with the top of the machine? If you have checked these things it could be the waste pump located at the rear right corner in the base of the unit.
To acess the pump tilt the machine to 45degrees and remove the base plate(6 screws) remove the two wires from the float(brown and pink) and move the plate out of your way.In the rear right corner you will see the waste pump.remove the pump and check the impelor is turning freely.If not dissmantle the pump(3 screws)and carefully remove any debris.Re-assemble.good luck.
