It needs to mounted at the lowest part of the tank where the water accumulates. There should be a drain petcock in the bottom of your tank, remove it and install the auto drain in its place.

Still having a start issue with my 86 toyota cressida

Make sure it has compression as when the cam belt failed it could have bent the valves.
Remove spark plugs and use a compression tester. If you don't ahve access to a compression tester... leave only 1 spark plug in place and try to start it. You should hear a distinct off beat sound of one compression per 2 revolutions. If you don't then it's a compression problem. It's best to confirm low compression with a tester before you go any further.
If this is the case you will need to replace the valves or a fit a good used cylinder head with new gaskets

Stuck valves no compression....

The only way is to check the valve cam clearances. If they are correct then the valves will need reseating which means taking the head off and grinding them in or replace them if too burnt. If too tight the valves won't close properly. It could of course be worn piston rings. Pouring a small amount of engine oil in through the spark plug holes will show increased compression if it is piston ring issues.

IF the valves are sticking open then the bad news is that they are probably bent and jamming in the guides.. I would guess that in reassembling the head they were not aware of the cam shaft timing and turned the crank when the cam was not positioned correctly hence the bent valves. With the compression readings you have it points directly to bent valves . They probably fitted the cam shaft then put the head on which will result in the same bent valves. Sorry for the news but my advice is to get the valves replaced then get hold of a work shop manual and do the job according to the book. At least you will wind up knowing more that the guys that didn't Best of luck.

Whirlpool Duet F02 code

Hello there
You are pretty close
here is the fauilt code and the procedures that you can take to troubleshoot Hope this is very helpful for you
F/02 Long Drain
If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F/02" is flashed.
NOTE: After 4 minutes the "Sud" error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
  • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
  • If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.

Whirlpool DUL200PKQ1 dishwasher won't drain. There is nothing blocking the drain and I've installed a new chopper-impeller kit. What's next?

Hello there
during the extraction cycle their is a drain solonoid valve that is supposed to open and let the water out, and the extraction pump will pump it out, so knowing this first when the unit gets to the point where it is supposed to drain listen carfully and see if you hear any clicking and if so good the solonoid is getting power next listen and see if you can hear the pump starts to hum if it does i would have to suggest that the solonoid is probably bad solonoid valves normally fail in the closed position which will not let any water pass thru it ok ?
