Airless Paint sprayers have two check balls that push the paint through the system. If one or both are either blocked open by anything or frozen on their seats by dried paint or hard water, the machine will do what you are describing. First with the machine running in water, try hitting the pump unit smartly with a hammer. The object is to knock the ball(s) lose without damaging the pump. If it frees up and starts pumping, run a cleaner through the unit to get everything out. If it does not start pumping, you are going to have to go inside to find out if the check balls are blocked or if the packings are damaged to the point they won't move paint anymore.

My Samsung 13Kg Top Loader WA13G7Q1 continuously drains out the water when the drum is being filled , what could be the problem

Either your in house drain pipe is too low or your drain pipe is down into the drain too far and this causes a siphon effect. Pull drain line up out a little at a time until it stops draining while filling. Good Luck!

I have 3 IBM 4900 in the system

well... since phones work on electricity too, (of course, powered from other lines) there is a huge possibility, from what i understand, that those 3 phones are connected from the same place where the phone line comes..
this means the 3 phones at the same time are consuming way too much electricity to maintain a conversation..
the way to fix it is getting the phone line from another source (of course, coming from your own house, but what i mean is a different box).

anyways.. try with 2 phones and see what happens... other than that, the best fix is getting more sources to connect the phone

I have one zone in my sprinkler system that has low pressure. I have changed the control valve and its the same. No signs of broken lines.

If it is a anti-siphon valve remove the anti-siphon cap and let it rip. Remove cap on adjacent valve and let it rip check to be sure the gieser is identical. If so let it run for a long time the leak will eventually show up. Because if it worked before and doesn't work now it has a leak. Water takes the path of least resistance. I have had them access the landscape drain before and you the leak didn't appear until it emptied at the street or followed a gopher hole a few hundred feet before surfacing. Listen carefully you will probably hear it.

If water just dribbles over the anti-siphon portion with cap removed it is still not opening flow control know may be turned down. In fact I would check to ensure this isn't the entire problem turn ir counter clockwise until it stops. This is the round know in the center of the valve.

Ecosmart washer won't drain it filled with water, washed and nowwon't drain the water.

you need to vacume out all the water so you make it light, then dolly out the washer to some place you can drain it. now take off the front of the washer and locate your water pump, its attached to your drain line. take off drain line to water pump and see if anything is clogged in the pump. This is most likely what is wrong if it wont drain. hope this helps.

Check to be sure the drain line is higher that the tub of the washer. You have a siphon going on the drain.

Pull on clutch lever soft, transmission won't shif gears (ingage/disengage) reservoir was low, so i filled it, lever still soft, does get firmer but not what should be, still won't change gears

Sounds like you have air in the clutch line, you will have to bleed the air out, it maybe the clutch slave cylinder seal is leaking, CAN YOU SELECT ALL THE GEARS WHILE THE ENGINE IS NOT RUNNING?

My maytag mtw5600tq1 washer won't hold water. Its

Its sounds like you have a siphon going on, this happens when the drain hose it too low during fill and as the water enters the unit it exits through the drain hose. To stop this the drain hose needs to be higher than the tub itself, meaning: raise the drain hose behind the washer to about control panel area. This will or should stop the siphon effect and allow the water to remain in the tub. If the drain hose is low this siphon will start again.
I hope this helps
