Fault Indication - "Over Flow"

Yesterday I was running very hot water through my empty machine - I do this periodically to keep the hose clear. I had also cleaned the soap dispenser which was really messy with clogged soap. Half way through the cycle the machine stopped, water leaked from the bottom and the Display said "Fault Indication - Over Flow". The machine won't move on from there! I have checked the pin trap and everyhing else I can think of. Please help!

Problem may be to with using very hot water which has dislodged sludge. fault may cure top of machine is a usually round device with 3 to 7 wires to it depending on type used. also connected is a small diameter hose. trace this hose to bottom of machine and it is connected into an air chamber. check air chamber is not clogged with sludge and if it is, clean it. remove small diameter hose and check not clogged as well and that there are no splits with it. there is really no need to clean appliance at all unless you are using liquid detergent which over time leaves a smell like drains. if you are, recommmend using powder

My washing machine model: Fuzzy Logic WFT10C31EP. Problem: When I start the machine, water does not fall into the tub although water pressure from the source is excellent. Only spin is...

It sounds like the water inlet valve is not functioning like it should. It is supposed to open to allow water to flow in when the Control Board gives the signal to open. First, try cleaning the Water Inlet Valve Filter. Turn the water supply off and remove the Water Supply Hoses. You will see the filter inside the Valve. Clean it out, and reconnect the hoses. Try washing again. If no water flows into the machine, you will need to replace the Inlet Valve/s. Try running an empty wash with just cold water, and then try running an empty wash with just hot water. If neither are working, you may have a control board fault. If only one side works, replace that sides water inlet valve.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

Yes it is normal just no hot air

1. When setting the temperature to MAX, blower level to FULL and outside air Vent CLOSED, no hot air comes out after 2-5 minutes?
If YES, when did you last flushed your radiator and is it full?
2. if more than 5 years ago, flush radiator system, instructions are usually in Owners manual. Use a bottle of Radiator cleaner, run egine hot for about 10-15 minutes, carefully open petcock in bottom of radiator to flush out radiator, WARNING, careful as flushed coolant would be boiling hot. As sson petcock is open and water start to flow out, carefully open radiator cap to enhance flushing flow. Use garden hose to fill radiator while flushing until water coming out from petcock is cold and clear.
Once clear, start engine, turn heter full and blower full blast and keep hose in radiator flowing full, leave petcock open until clear water flows out again. Once clear waters comes out, turn off engine,turn off garden hose and let water drain empty radiator. Once it stops flowing out, close petcock snug and put radiator cap on, pull off radiator coolant catch bottle, clean bottle for any debris and dirt. Drain any water, leave bottle empty and put it back onto its place.
3. Fill radiator with 1 gallon (4L) of concentrated coolant, top up radiator until full, fill catch bottle with concentrated coolant, start engine and keep it overflowing until no bubbles comes out and the radiator is fully hot. Once it is flowing good, close and connect everything. Drive with it and keep catch bottle filled as necessarry.
Good luck. Give as vote and good comment if this advise solve youor problem. Thank you.

The machine says ventilatore and will not do anything The fault was shown after the water container has been refilled and it run empty for water in 5 sec.

On the Royal Pro machines there is a water button that you are suppose to push to run water. Have you pushed the button? Water has to flow to clear the ventilate message.

Washer Intuitive Fault code 12 Washer keeps

Hello there:
This code is a indication that your water inlet valve has failed and needs to be replaced when these valves fail they will continue to drain water into the machine even if the unit is unplugged
What you can do is to first unplug the machine and turn off the water to the unit then remove the hoses to the machine then youwill need to remove the back panel of the machine so you can get to the water inlet valve once you get to t the valve remove all of the hoses to it and the wiring and remove the valve then you can open up the valve and inspect it and replace any parts that are worn or rusted like seals or seats or simply replacve the entire valve itself this will cost you about 40 to 60 dollars ok once the valve has been repaired or replaced reinstall the water hoses and turn on then plug in the machine and if you have a cancel feature on it press that than you should be good to go from here run a couple of cycles thru it to ensure it is working properly ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Rinnai gas water temperature keep alternating from hot to cold

A fault often found with these units is due to insufficient water flow. Usually this causes specifically the shower to run hot and cold. Try turning on more than one hot supply; if this fixxes the fault you will need to try and increase water flow. Most new tapware/showerware have water flow restictors built in. These are the cause of many problems with continous flow heaters such as the Rinnai. In taps they are usually located in the spout if it unscrews. In showers try the shower hose. Find them and take them out. Also make sure your mains supply to the house is on full.
There are more technical faults but this is something you can easily try first.

We have recently bought a Maytag Epic front load washer and F & H keeps comming up...what's the problem?

FH is an indication the the machine is not sensing enough water flowing into the machine....
The only thing you can do without taking the machine apart is to disconnect the water hoses to the back of your machine and inspect the filter screens for any type of debris that might be restricting water flow into the machine. Typically, the cold water line is more susceptible to foreign matter than the hot waterline.
If screens appear OK then the problem may be with the water fill valve, water flow sensor, water pressure switch or blockage in the water pressure switch hose.

W640 - Water Outlet Fault

I solved this problem this morning, after several months with intermittent "water outlet fault" error messages.

Our pin trap was cleared many times over the months. The propellor turned freely. However, the problem persisted.
So I unplugged the machine, removed the back panel (8 or so hex screws) and located the point where the drainage hose meets the water draining pump. I then separated the hose from the pump and found 2 United States 10-cent pieces lodged together with gunk that effectively blocked the drainage hose. 10-cent pieces ("dimes") are the perfect diameter to get stuck there and not appear in the pin trap where you could easily see and remove them.

Three loads later, the machine is working according to spec. Hope this helps.

Fault Indication - "Over Flow"

Does manual say to clear drain by running high temp water to clear drain; i dont think so. Now you have to unscrew the back to see where the leak comes from - by pouring plain water into the machine (where u put clothes). Unplug all electrical connections, ie disconnect the machine from the wall socket. Pl post back
