My caravan carver heaters pressure relief vale keeps blowing any ideas please


Not familiar with that exact heater but if it is an electric heater with a top and bottom element this may be the problem. Electric water heaters usually heat water off the bottom element. If a lot of hot water is used then the top one kicks in through the temperature controls. In some cases if the bottom element burns out, it will try to heat everything with the top element. This sometimes causes the water in the top of the tank to actually get too hot and it opens the relief valve. So you may have a bottom element bad. Otherwise your relief vale may need replaced or you have a sticking temp control making it get too hot.

Your water inlet valve were the hot and cold hoses attach at the washer has most likely failed and is allowing the water to seep in.

Drain valve plastic slow leak 81V-80D


If the drip is coming out of drain valve: Put a hose cap over end of drain valve.
If water is seeping out of cracked drain vale, then replace it.
If the leak is seeping around previously sealed threads, then tank may be rusted beyond repair.

Make sure the breaker is not tripped, make sure you have 120 volts at the plug outlet. make sure you water hot and cold water valves are open. sounds like to me your the fill valve is bad ( thats where your hoses hook to the washer) try to wash a load in cold water only then try hot water only. if you have power most likely its your fill vale

My front loader LG washer works fine during the load, but when I come a while after the load is done, water has seeped back into the washer and I have run the drain cycle to get it out. LG says it needs...


If you have the capability its probably a leaking seal on the water input line at thetop of the water. Often its a simple hoseclamp that needs tightening. Without looking myself thats the easiest solution. Hope this helps!

Hot water connected but does not fill into the drum? The machine will provide us with a cold wash but on the warm and hot settings the hot water dies not pull through the connection


Turn off the water valves which supply the water to washer hoses. Switch the hot and cold water supply hoses and tighten. Turn the water valves back on and try to run a wash cycle using cold. If hot water only is entering the wash tub the water supply is ok. If this is the case you can unplug the washer and turn off the water valves. Remove the washer back cover and follow the water connection for the hot water. The water solenoid valve will have two electrical wires connected to it. Interchange the hot water solenoid wires with the cold water solenoid connection. Connect the water supply hoses hot to hot and cold to cold then plug the unit then test the washer on the cold wash. If the problem persists it could be a water hose restriction or the timer circuit could be defective. If you have hot water at the normal pressure purchase a new hot water solenoid valve. With the electrical cord unplugged be sure to restore the correct wire connections on the hot and cold water solenoid. To replace the hot water solenoid remove the hose clamp and hose to replace the old valve. Connect the unit to the water and electrical outlet. Turn on the water and test the unit for leaks being careful not to touch any electrical and moving parts. If all checks ok and the correct temperature work, unplug the unit and reassemble.

Water seeping back in washer after load is done?


Very possible your household drain pipe is almost the same size as the washers drain pipe. The house hold pipe should be approximately twice the diameter so as to allow equalising air in while water is being expelled from the washer. If at any time there is water flowback, it wont be forced into the washer pipe as it will now have an air gap.

Water that seeps into washer after cycle is done


Hi, If you are getting water in the tub when the washer is off, you will need a new inlet mixer valve. You can test this by tirning the water off at the wall and see if any water seeps in. If you would get me a model #, Icould look this up for you.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.
