Question about Dishwashers

Hoover crystaljet d7156 leakig badly

Machine starts up and runs for a while, then sound level increases and lots of water comes from under it. Have removed front bottom panels to confirm. Have drained and put on it's side and checked all the hoses which seem O.K. Local repair man says it's likely to be unequal pressure and wants 86 pounds to fix it. As the machine is about 25 years old am loath to spend so much on it as it also needs a new door seal, nearly 30 pounds including carriage, as there is an intermittent leak from RH side of door, presumably as door frame seal is perished in bottom corners and strip seal across bottom of door disintegrated some years ago and I can't find a replacement, worked fine with a drip tray up to last week. Do we bite the bullet and buy a new one which for sure won't last so long.

SOURCE: Water Leakage Under Front Load Washer

most likley cause of your problem is the grey bellows has a tear in it. Inspect the bellows to check for tears. Or you can remove the lower panel and run the washer and look for the leak that way. Im sure it is a tear in the belows. Not a diffacult part to replace if you are mechanicly inclined. Good luck.

SOURCE: Water leaking from bottom of door during wash cycle

I had a similar problem.  It turned out to be the overflow "sock".  It's a long plastic bag that hangs from the side of the tub.  You have to get the top open, and it will be on the left side.  Where it attaches to the tub, the plastic attachment has a rubber washer that gets flattened out after time allowing the attachment to get loose and leak.  Since I couldn't find the washer to replace it, I cut a piece of gasket material like you get from an auto parts place and placed it behind the foam washer.  This made the connection tight, and the leak stopped, thank God.

SOURCE: Water coming out from under the door

Hi neilsadler

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question: Water comes out of the bottom of the door. I thought it was the seal, replaced it and its still doing it. So the maintinance man changed the motor and its still leaking. Drain hose is clear also. I am lost. Any ideas?

In my experience there are two resons to explore.
It is unlikely but we have to look at this posibility, you could be useing the wrong kind of soap or too much soap. If you're sure you're OK there then take a real good look at the level of the d/w. If it isn't perfect that could be the problem. I'm talking vertically, horizontally and front to back. It can be hard to get it right. I hope this is the case because all we're left with is a defective d/w. No mater if new or old. If new try to push for a new warranty replacement. We're talking a whole new d/w. If you push hard enough this it can be done. If it's old, it's time for a new one.

SOURCE: GE side by side by side,water drips from bottom freezer door

I have the same problem. Just talked to a friend that's a great appliance repairman. he said I have to remove the panel in the back inside of freezer and there is a drain that gets clogged up, a little hole or tube.
clean that and should work fine and stop leaking. I haven't had time yet, but this weekend I'll do the deed. Hopes this helps ya!

How do I increase water level in my wfxd8400uc?


I get this complaint a lot from home owners , I take it you have just got your first front loader washer , and you don't think it adds enough water to wash anything , this is the water saving feature of front loaders
but a simple test I tell most folks to do if they think there water level sensor is not working right
set washer to auto load sense on water level , normal wash cold water, permapress add nothing to drum completely empty! no soap unless you have a auto soap dispenser then it wont start to you add some and close door

start cycle wait till fill is complete just as it goes to agitate stop cycle (plug can be pulled for this if buttons have locked out )and open door see if water level is two fingers wigth under door seal , if its close your ok if it's a long way off then contact a repair department to look at auto sense water level

Hoover 705 , overfills and fllods laundry can it be fixed


On my hoover 200m (top loader) I had a similar problem. I turned off the machine & unplugged it. Closed water taps both hot & cold. Manually emptied machine with large cup. Undid bottom outlet hose by unclipping.The residual water will come out! I undid the 3 screws on the control panel. Tilted the control panel forward. The water level is manual control using a diagaphram pressure control to set water level. This had a hose. I disconnected both ends and used a bicycle pump to blow air thorough it. Underneath I disconnected where the hose goes into machine (clips) and also blew air from the top to check it was clear. After reconnecting everything the machine now does not stop filling and does not overflow anymore. Hope this helps.

Water keeps running and doesnt fill up on large and medium loads


Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tub. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.



If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

Water not pumping into coffee maker


Sounds like a bad pump...I would contact Keurig Customer Service if your machine is still under warranty -- they will probably send a replacement.

Water doesn't shut off


Hi There
I have looked up your problem that you are having. Read this and let me know how it goes. Hope this gets you in the right direction.
If your washer is overfilling, check these: Water-inlet valve Water-level switch Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve. Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.\
Thank you for writing to fix ya.
Best Regards Richard

Water does not stop at the proper level. Keeps running and will overflow. Once it gets to the spin cycle is does not continue to run. If I let it fill, cut off the water at the valve and then refill it for...


Sounds like it could be the water level switch. An obstruction or defect in the water level switch will make it not tell the water to turn off, overfilling the machine. The switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear plastic tube between the switch and the bottom of the washers outer tub. As the water level comes up, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When it reaches high enough, it trips the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the wash cycle. Clear away any obstruction in the tube or replace the switch. Hope this helps.

Water continues to run and over flow as cycle won't start


Hi!

There are two main reasons due to which the water is overflowing out of washing machine---

1. Water Inlet Valve: A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.
2. Water-level switch : A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch

HOOVER 500MB WASHING MACHINE


the pump hose has to be above tub level or the water will run out
the dial control unit is faulty and if the parts are are available will cost up to $150.00 aud approx to buy
the leak under the machine could be from a tub to pump hose or water level hose up to sensor
how new is almost new as it seems you have inherited a lemon and not a working machine

Bed Smell


this sounds like you need the rubber replacing around the drum that seals the door to stop it leakig when the washing machine is in teh spin cycle this gets hot and starts to smell this can get really bad and will eventually start to leak this can be replaced but you will need to get someone to do it for you as it is a big job shouldnt cost to much to get done but will be cheaper than replacing the whole machine hope this is some help................
