Appears the float is adjustable ? Float is attached to a long screw type arm.

SOURCE: how can I adjust the float

what happens is the float is not staying open for long enough, by shorting the chain that goes to the flapper might help but you can only shorten it so much or the flapper does not close all the way then the toilet is just running and running. No you don't want that so the other thing you can do that might work is when you go to flush the toilet just hold the handel down for 5 seconds this will keep the float up and open for the Right amount of time. Other wise the other way to fix it witch is a old school trick is that you need to find a nice small piece of foam, witch floats and is about the size of a old half dollar and as least half inch thick, you place that on the chain that goes to the flapper so when the toilet is flushed the flapper will float and stay open . IF you do this just make sure to use a good piece of foam and secure it properly where it wont come off the chain.

SOURCE: I have a Jacuzzi Perfecta toilet (bought Aug. 21,

Have you tried shutting water off and take top of valve appart and flush it out. It may have something in valve causing water to be restricted. It will have an arrow on it to direction to get it to come off.

Take appart and clean rubber disc and you can put something over top of valve , a small cup or something to enable you to flush the tank. Have someone help you and hold the cup above the valve so that when you turn water on for a few bursts to flush out the valve it goes into tank.

The actual stream that flows through valve is restricted down to almost 1/8 " opening so it wouldn't take mush to block the flow of water.

The disc you take out you can replace it, if it seems to be damaged and not working correctly. That will affect the flow also.

Testimonial: "I took the valve apart. It is working like it is supposed to. That sure is a tiny hole for the fill water to shoot through. that is why it is so slow. It still whistles when filling. Tnx Walter Neaves"

Water only dribbles out of lower spray arm during cycle and spray arm doesn't turn. checked filter, water lines etc. If it's a motor or pump that needs to be replaced, how do I get to it?


Hi

When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Dishes just aren't getting clean...bottom or top rack


Hi

If the water inlet valve is fine and it fills with water then the issue seems to be with the float switch assembly that is bad and should be replaced. Float assembly is found inside the dishwasher's tub, on the bottom. The water that fills the dishwasher lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may interfere with dishwasher's filling and/or draining ability. Use voltmeter to test the switch. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Take each probe and touch them to one switch terminal each. This should produce a reading of either zero or infinity. Continue to touch the probes to the terminals, and press down on the switch's button. The reading should change to the opposite extreme. If the switch fails either of these tests, you should replace it. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

The dishes on the top are not getting clean. Wondering if there is something wrong with the top spray arm or ultra flow water feed tube.

Hissing sound in tank (fill valve) . fills too level line & keeps then slowly fills too top, floats been adjusted .


Dear Sir,

It appears you need to adjust the float level so that it applys more pressure quickly to completely shut off the water going into the main filler tube. Does the hissing go away when you lift up on the float toward the ceiling? If it does, then you need to what I said above. Turn your float ball out farther, or carefully bend your rod down toward the base of the toilet so that it applies more pressure quickly. This should solve your issue.
