Question about Saeco Vienna SuperAutomatica Coffee Maker/Espresso Machine

Open Question

Bellows Pump Can you tell me what is a Bellows Pump and where I might be able to get one? After not having used my machine for about one week, I turned it on, attempted to steam, and no steam came out. The steam knob popped out. I pushed the steam knob back in, attempted to get steam again, and then heard a loud noise and steam came hissing out of the sides of the machine. Then it shut down the power. After this happened I tried to prime the machine. In trying to prime it, I find that it turns on, the pump starts working, but no water comes out, then the power shuts off. The water then leaks out of the bottom. I wanted to try the manual prime, but don't know what a bellows pump is. Also, can you suggest any other fix? Thanks!

When you get the bellows repair kit for your model, it should have the instructions and all the necessary parts for replacement.
You may need to use some muscle to replace it and may take 1 to 2 hours to complete. If you have trouble finding the part or if there are not sufficient instructions included, then email  back! ok?

SOURCE: How to replace the door bellows seal ?

did hte rear clamp come off or just the front spring. assuming its just front spring.carefully reinstall the boot over the front lip assy . easy enough!!here comes the fun!! the spring itself goes to the bottom of the rim.So hang the wire over the top of bellow and feed into the lip evenly as you go down both sides as soon as you get your hands to the 9oclock and 3 oclock positon I then change grip on the spring (use the tips of my fingers palms facing front assy and strech whole pushing down and in. I used to find small spring style clamps would work great for holding the wire in place till it would "pop" into place. a third hand is also very useful to hold in place .

I have not seen a tech sheet (or service manual) that details how to remove one of these. Basically, once you have your replacement boot (availible at local parts stoares or from the manufactures web site on line), You can follow these steps:
1 - Remove the front clamp. (a silver peice of wire with a spring at the botom) A small flat head screwdriver will let you pull it off.
2 - You will have a clamp on a hose that comes from the dispenser to the boot on some models that you will have to disconnect.
3 - There is a second clamp on the tub side itself. Remove it by using a short phillips head screw driver to unscrew it.
4 - remove the boot
5 - Reverse the procedure making sure to line the new boot up at the top. (there is a arrow that needs to be ligned up on the tub and the boot.
Taking the lower front panel off can give you a bit more room to work. You can take it off by removing the screws at it's bottom.

Turn machine on and make sure that the knob is fully opened, if the pump does not engage(vibrate) then either the machine is not getting power or there is a problem with the pump.

Have replaced the drain pump and diverter valve. Machine will not pump the water from the tub and recirculate it on the top of the clothes. So I started using the regular wash cycle on it and now it says...

for safety purposes, all repairs should be performed by an authorized service technician. first, perform systems check in order to diagnose any problems. the tech sheet is usually located under the control panel.there may be an obstruction in the recirculation system. coins small objects may have blocked the recirculation. beware coins can work as a valve if it is in the right place. remove the basket to ensure that the pump bellows is cleaned and clear. if the pump has been leaking then the pump and electronic control need to be replaced as a pair. once replaced the control need to get programmed for the specific model.

My washer is leaking from the underneath... I observed a cycle and noticed that the only time it does not leak is when it is draining. It has a slightly increased level of leak when it is filling but it...

The bit you're pointing to isn't meant to have any water in it (and to be honest, probably doesn't).

The leak is probably somewhere nearby, with the water then tracking round the outside of the pump before finally dripping off the lowest point.

There are two approaches to finding the leak.

1. Dry the whole pump assembly really thoroughly, then put some cold water into the machine and (with the power disconnected) carefully feel around the pump body to try to identify what bits get damp first.

2. Use the information that the leak subsides when the machine is draining to narrow your search to the pump suction. Have a careful look at the black bellows (at the right hand edge of your photo), examining all the corrugations for splits and tears. Then check the point where the bellows joins the pump body (the round, creamy coloured object with another hose coming out of it in between your arrowed box and the bellows). Use the dry/cold water/feel around trick to help with these examinations.

Flooding during spin cycle w/ water level @ lrg.

I don't know what kind of machine you have, but we had the same problem just 2 days ago. Ours is an LG front loader. It turned out the problem was a bad bellows. You can get the bellows from the Repair Clinic ( I called them, and they were extremely helpful. The part was $14, and we were able to lay our washer on its side, access the bellows from underneath and replace the part. The bellows is a rubber hose-like connector. I read somewhere that hot water will cause holes in the bellows over time. This completely fixed our water leak. But I purchased 2 of these parts so that I have one for when it happens the next time. Good luck!

Our frigidaire Galley front loader washer has an odor all the time even after washing in hot water...any suggestions?

Most odor problems can be traced to mildew or mold in the creases and folds of the bellows seal and the pump strainer. This is the seal that you see when the door is opened and connects to the drum.
There are chemicals available that can be placed in the washer. I've seen them advertised on YouTube (type in smelly washer), but I cannot vouch for them.
Some people report that they have been advised to leave the door open when the washer is not in use, and I've seen others recommend Tilex.
What works best, in my opinion is a thorough cleaning, including the strainer. Here's how:
Gain access to the strainer. It is located behind the front panel, at the bottom. The strainer is in-line between the drum and the pump, and is connected to the drum with a rubber hose. Open and clean the strainer. Look up into the pump cavity and remove/kill any debris in there as well. Reassemble the strainer, putting a spray of silicone on the "O" ring and threads. Wipe down the bellows seal with a solution of bleach and soapy water, getting all of the grooves and nooks wetted. Let it sit for 5 minutes, and wipe it again. Pour 1 cup of bleach in the washer. Fill the dispensers (detergent, bleach and softener) with bleach. Run a "sanitary" extended cycle with the hottest water on the wash cycle and rinse cycle. When this cycle is completed, run another cycle to flush all bleach residue out. Clean the seal with the bleach/soapy water 1X/week, or as your nose tells you.
Hope that you have found this to be helpful.
Best regards, --W/D--

Frigidaire gltf1670a front door seal instalation

Open the door and remove either the outer bellows spring (newer models) or use a putty knife to scrape the glue around the bellows to release it from the cabinet lip. At this point lean the machine back to give more space between the drum and the cabinet.
Remove the kickplate for easier access and to visually check for leaks later.
Starting at the top, pull on the bellows firmly (close to the tub) until it comes out of the groove. Once it comes off you will see the bellows spring.
Install the new bellows starting at the top by aligning the marks (arrow on the bellows top and arrow on the tub lip). Work your way around until bellows is properly seated snug against the tub.
Here it gets tricky, it might be easier with an extra pair of hands but there's less room. Some bellows kits contain spacers/plugs which will help to "hold" the spring as you stretch it back in place. Work from the top down on both sides at once. Either use the spacers/plugs or have someone hold the spring in place as you work your way around.
Once in place, lay the machine back to level and reinstall the front of the bellows to the cabinet. Either re-install the outer bellows spring or re-glue the bellows to the cabinet. If this is not done you risk a water leak.
With towels handy (just in case), let the machine fill and agitate for a few minutes and check for water leakage. If all is well, make sure machine is still level by try to rock it diagonally from the top (if it rocks, lower the leg that is lifting). Re-install the kickplate and wash some laundry!

How to replace the door bellows seal ?

Unfortunately the service manual will not tell you how to replace the bellows.

Tilt the machine back to create more space between the front on the door and the outer drum. Remove the screws for the kickplate and remove the kickplate for easier access. Open the door and remove the spring clamp holding the bellows to the door opening lip. Push the bellows into the drum to get access to the outside/ rear of the bellows (where it connects to the drum). There you will find another clamp which you loosen/ remove with a socket. Some models have an overfill tube on the top of the bellows (remove it from the bellows). At this point you should be able to completely remove the bellows.

Align the new bellows to the outer tub. Attach and tighten the inner clamp (be careful not to over tighten and periodically check the bellows and clamp placement as you're tightening to make sure it doesn't slip off). Attach the overfill tube (if equipped). Lay the machine back to level and install the front of the bellows to the door opening lip. Re-install the spring clamp by starting at the top and working your way down both sides (may be easier with 2 pairs of hands). Be careful not to overstretch the spring on the clamp.

Test with a quick fill and let it agitate for a few minutes to ensure there are no leaks (be ready to hit cancel and have a few towels just in case it leaks). Re-install the kickplate, make sure machine is still leveled correctly by trying to rock it diagonally from the top. Enjoy clean clothes!
