Things to consider are cut and replace -1. Concrete saw the affected area replace and re-concrete (impact hammer is another option but a concrete saw is neater and you can control the cut better.. 2. You can bypass the pipe. 3. Dig under the slab - you obviously would need to be near an edge.

Drain pipes might go under the ground. You have slab leak. Plumber will figure it out, or check blue prints of Your house if You have those(will show You "What Where")

Water meter keeps running. When I turn off the water supply to the hot water tank the needle on the water meter stops, does that mean that I have a leak in the hot water pipe coming out of tge tank.


Yes you have a leak on hot pipe or TP overflow tube.
Put ear against pipe to listen for sound of running water.

If TP valve goes into drain line, check if water is running down TP overflow tube.
Check each faucet for leaks.
If pipes are under slab, put ear against each faucet to determine which faucet is closest to broken pipe.

My water heater runs constantly lately and i noticed water at my property line and around half my house. i can't tell where the leak is coming from. house is on slab. i am afraid to ask. the floor...


Does the hot-water line running from the heater go into / under the slab before going back into the house?

Or does the pressure relief valve drain line on the water heater go into / under the slab ?

It could be as simple as a faulty pressure relief valve on the heater (which would be the most likely of the two possibilities). When the water heats, the pressure builds in the tank, the water flows out the faulty pressure relief valve and down the drain line under the slab.

A plumber would be the person to call.

You can do all your fixin underneath where you say it is leaking on the slab if there is room for you to crawl under why remove the tube, more trouble than it is worth.

The machine is not making ice. It makes the slab of ice, but it does not drop down onto the cutting grid.


Your unit either has a bad evaporator thermsitor (most likely) which is used to decide when to go into harvest -- or -- it has a refrigeration problem like a hot gas valve leaking past it's seat (less common but often mis-diagnosed)

If you are handy, have a multi-meter and would like futher troubleshooting assistance, write me back and I would be happy to help you. If you want me to recommend a servicer in your area give me your address (or general location).

If the unit makes a half-inch slab in about 25 to 35 minutes, I would wager the thermsitor is bad. If the slab is very uneven or takes a long time to reach one-half inch, I would wager a hot-gas valve issue.

Good-Luck, Subdriver

Banging tumbler during spin cycle


Be certain that nothing got under the rubber skirt, pull it back and look /feel under it .
inside the tub are the large wiper arms solid and not come loose.
open the top access panel (3 screws in top rear )
and open the bottom access Panel (3 screws in bottom front)
Dissconnect power .
Look at the springs and arms that attach to the tub are they secure.
is the large stone concreate slabs secure.
move all these items and push at them all secure?
you can run it while open but the bottom has a switch on front right that has to be closed.
look watch listen.
