How do I increase the water flow into the tank of a Verona toilet


1.) Check to make sure that the water shut-off valve is all the way open (the water valve a.k.a. the shut-off valve is located behind the toilet near the wall or the floor, depending upon installation placement.) The water supply line attaches to it and feeds up into the refill valve assembly inside the toilet tank.
2.) Check the float assembly or the refill valve assembly, make sure it hasn't bound up by getting caught on another part inside the tank.
3.) Check the water level to make sure that it sits about 1 inch below the overflow tube in the middle of the tank. If the water is lower, adjust the float inside the tank to raise the water level. For models that have a ball float, turn the screw on top of the fill valve clockwise to raise the water level. For models that contain a cylinder float valve attached to the fill valve, squeeze the clip on the side of the float and pull the float up until the water reaches the desired level.

My Sears series 80 washer fills till it is overflowing and doesnt shut off water flow, it was overflowing onto floor this morning, it is full to the rim now, and wont drain or do anything when it is turned...


The usual arrangement is there are 2 electrical water inlet valves, one for Hot and 1 for Cold. These valves are turned on by the timer, and remain on until the water level switch turns them on, and allows the washer to then run. It sounds like this water level switch is bad. This switch should be in the panel above the top of the washer, and has a rubber/plastic tube that goes toward the washer drum. It is also possible that the rubber tube is off or blocked. (if the water inlet valve is stuck open, turning the washer off will NOT stop the water).

Good Luck,
Bill

My fridge model CTF2123AR leaks water under bottom pull drawer. this pools water on the floor


Water found under the tray is due to excess defrost specially when the fridge is set to a lower temperature due to heavy frosting.
So during defrosting the excess water flows into the tray and overflows out which incidently has flooded on the floor.
What could be done is to drain off the tank, fully defrost the fridge by shutting down for few hours and then setting the fridge/freezer to a normal temperature.

I have a new Kohler Toilet that has a different flushing system from other Toilets. It's about 1 year old now and I'm noticing a Drip noise on the 1st floor under this Toilet. It looks to me like the water...


Basically, if water is flowing out of the overflow tube, then water must be coming in...I would suggest that you check the intake valve, it is probably not shutting off completely when the float comes up to the prescribed level,and continues to leak some water into the tank. That is what the overflow tube is there for.

New Whirlpool Dishwasher filler overflows.


New Whirlpool Dishwashers will NOT accept the same "volume" of water that was desired by the same products of 25 years ago. Therefore the old 3/8" ID copper supply is too large and will overflow the tub filler/aireator (out the air vent holes). I just installed a new dishwasher supply kit consisting of a new 3/8" OD stainless braded hose with an ID of about 1/4". This delivers less volume than that recommended (in the installation manual) and therfore does restrict the flow a bit. However, the flowrate is adequate and the new dishwasher now works perfectly with no water overflow on the floor . . .

Have a GE washer model WWSR3090TAWW, S/N DT106239G. The washer overflowed, and repaced the water level switch. It tested okay. Later when a load was done, it did the same thing. I have checked...


Here's the acid test: If the water is overflowing, turn off power (timer off, unplug machine, or switch off breaker) and if water stops flowing, you have a bad water level switch or obstructed water level tube leading to the level switch. If the water continues to flow in when power is off, and the only way to stop it is to shut off the water supply valves, then replace the water inlet valve of the washer, which for your machine is part number WH13X10024 and generally goes for about $50.

My maytag washer fills and wont quit it overflows all over my floor , i think the timer is bad model # pav2300aww


This is most likely caused by a faulty water level switch. The water level switch is a diaphragm like device with a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level rises, pressure increases on the air in the tube and when the pressure reaches a certain level, it signals the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to start the agitate cycle. Make sure there are no obstructions in the tube. If the switch is defective, it will have to be replaced. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Admiral Top Load Washer Model LNC6762B71 overflowed


Remove the control console cover. Find the water level switch.
It has a small tube attached to it.
Remove the tube and blow air through it. It is probably stopped up. Reattach it to the water level switch.
Look over the length of the tube and may sure it is not pinched.
Set the washer to spin and run spin for about 1 minute.
Then run water on a lower level and see if it shuts off.
If not replace the water level switch.

Washer won't aggitate or spin.


your water pressure tube is clogged at the tub. Take the back of the control panel off and blow or a small balst of compressed air down this tube and try the washer again. Powder detergent clogs this tube at the bottom of the tub and does not tell your pressure switch to shut the water off at the proper level thus overflowing your tub.
