SOURCE: Water Surge Making Pipes Knock

What you are describing is called "water hammering" and is caused when a water valve shuts off quickly. The momentum of the water moving within the pipe causes the pipe to bang when it comes to a sudden stop. Plumbers can install an air chamber to absorb the water hammer (just like a shock absorber) but you might try ones that you can just screw onto the hoses behind the washer. I have seen them at places like Home Depot in the plumbing department. (hope you can find someone who actually knows what you are talking about to help you find them) Alternately, you may be able to find them at a hardware store or appliance parts supplier.

SOURCE: Water drip into washer, used to gush in. Now water pipes bang, whine

The problem is the 10 cent rubber washer in a shut off valve in your plumbing. The brass screw that holds this washer has corroded and the washer has come loose. It now floats around inside the valve and the water flow can be blocked at one time, whistle, howel and make bangs at another. It could be any valve including the main shut off. You can listen to the pipes but the sound travels, so you are looking for the loudest spot. A new washer and screw could fix it, but sometimes the screw is broken off requiring a new valve stem. Be prepared to replace the whole valve.

What would cause a circulator failure?


I am going to assume the circulator pump is on a hot water circulation loop. Turning the water back on could have stirred up the sediment that has collected in the bottom of the water heater. This could clog up and possibly ruin the impeller. Running for an extended period without circulating water can overheat and damage the pump also. It is a good idea to hook a hose to the water heater drain and flush out the sediment periodically. Hope this helps.

My Kenmore HE2 front load washer when I go to start a load of clothes it's making a humming sound and not filling up with water?


Either one of your water valves isn't working properly, or the lines have sediment restricting the volume of water . What I would do is turn the water to the machine off and remove the water lines and make sure they aren't filled will calcium, etc. and look in the water valves where the hoses connect because that are, which has a screen, may be full of nastiness. If both those are good then the water valve solenoid(s) are stuck and won't open. The humming sound you hear lets you know the rest of the machine is working because the sound is generated by power being applied to the valve by the control.

After tank fills up, water continues to flow a little. How do you fix it?


Is the water flowing into the overflow? If so adjust the water level. Have you checked the shut off seal inside fluidmaster? If you just installed could've jogged some sediment lose in the line and plugged the seal if older could have a bad seal.

My maytag neptune will not stop filling with water at the initial fill cycle and will eventually push the door open and empty onto the floor. The water never turns off, even if I unplug the machine, water...


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} 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.

There is a screen filter in the water supply hose that may need cleaning. A recurring problem like yours is usually caused by sediment in the water which prevents the valve from closing. It's usually just the cold water side because the hot water has a chance to settle before being used. . Being on a well water system or a system where the pipes have been disturbed from repair or construction can cause extra sediment.

Water pipes vibrate very loudly when the washer fills with water


Possibly a bad inlet valve solinoid that is not opening completely. Unfortunately you will need to have a F/P tech out to look at it.

Kenmore washer. At rinse cycle only, water fills very slowly.


For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

Take off your hoses and check filters for sediment build up. If this is ok, you may need to replace the water inlet valve.
