Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

The water pipe in the wall behind the bathroom sink vibrates/knocks on the wall routinely. Opening the water spigot will show pulsing water, and ultimtely stop the vibrating. The noise started out maybe once or twice a day, and is now vibrating three or four times an hour. The house is new as of 2007 and the problem has only recently begun. Do I have to open up the wall and cushion the pipe, or secure it to a stud?

I hear a knocking noise behind the wall when I use the hot water. What could it be and how do I get rid of it?


I had something similar, but I would call the noise more like 'ticking'. The problem was that hot water would heat up the plumbing vent piping (plastic) for that bathroom and it would expand and then contract (after shutting hot water off). As the pipe 'grew' it would make noise sliding through the opening in the ceiling header. It seems that builders had stuffed loose fiberglass around the pipe there that served to let the pipe move freely. The fiberglass had fallen out and the pipe was rubbing against the wood and making noise. Stuffing new fiberglass in the opening around the pipe fixed it.

Toilet bowl will not refill


It is possible that the vent pipe behind the toilet is clogged (or was not installed properly). Some bathrooms are set up with one shared vent pipe, and a clog in one of the lines leading to it can cause similar problems.
The vent pipe in each bathroom does 2 things:
1: it lets the sewer gas go past the bathroom and up out the roof so you don't get sewer gas in the house.
2: It breaks the siphon as water goes from fixtures down to the big sewer pipes in the house. If it isn't working for a sink, it's not much of a problem because air gets mixed in with the water as it does down the sink, and this breaks the siphon. But in a toilet, it jsut keeps pulling water down the pipe until the water level in the toilet gets low enough to let air into the pipe, breaking the siphon.

It's not an easy problem to fix and often involves removing walls to get at pipes.
A plumber can bring a snake tool and try clearing the pipes from below or from the roof, and might even be able to bring a steerable snake that lets him control how it goes through the pipe.

Unfortunately this sounds like more than a blockage. If this was a blockage water would not drain, maybe fill in sink or dishwasher etc. If water is coming from walls probably means it is leaking from drain pipe in the wall. Which would mean opening wall to find leak.

When shower is in use pipes vibrate and water starts to pulse,when faucet on sink is turned on it stops .What's up?Shower is an Aquasource brand.


You need to install water hammer arrestors in your basement it prevents this, if you have them already there water logged. All u do is shut off your water to your house and drain it down to the lowest point....when its done draining u fill it back up again slowly. Your water hammer arrestors may have become water logged when the new shower was installed

You have water hammer effect it is caused by a fast closing valve,it can be solved by installing a water hammer arestor in the plumbing line or maybe the water pressure is too high and a pressure reducing valve can be installed in the main water line.(the pipes in the wall are not secured properly that's why they vibrate)

I have two bathrooms directly under each other. The hinges on both cabinets (under the sink) are rusted and the pipes going from the wall to under the sink are also rusted. There are NO LEAKS ANYWHERE in...


You can't stop condensation or humidity in the house, especially in the bathrooms. A few choices: replace the hinges, or oil the hinges with WD-40. Install a vent fan (even though you have a window) and replace the pipes with PVC pipes. Metal drain pipes will always rust, because they drain water. Replace all under sink drain pipes with PVC

If it is running constant, Check the toilet(s) flappers in the tank(s). If warer is leaking in the wall, You would know it, trust me.. To ck the house, Turn off the water to the house and then go ck the meter. Walk the yard and around the house looking for water perking out of the ground.Don't turn the water off at the meter. There should be a valve at the point the pipes enter the house or foudation.Good Luck_Ned_

Leak from bathroom sink behind the wall


hello , usually there will be water supply lines coming in from behind the wall area and if it isnt leaking at the supply valve it self then you may need to open up the wall area behind the sink and find out what is leaking it depends on what type of pipe is used most likely you have cooper tubing and sometimes these tubes after a while may leak or form small holes or it may be a leak at a soldered joint remeber there are 2 lines one for hot one for cold and you can turn the off by shuting off your water at the main valve then repair the leaking area.
