Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a Mira Flight Shower tray which does not disperse the water. How can I remove the waste cover from the Domed Top Access Wate Trap before I unscrew and remove the inner filter?

I have removed the centre from the waste cover and can see threads into the trap for unscrewing - however I still need to lift off the chrome waste cover from the tray - how is this done?

SOURCE: Miele leak when switched on for wash, from filter unit front LHS bottom of machince

You can replace the Bellows as it is called but to fix it before you replace it clean it with Bleach to kill the mold and then dry it ALSO after any load you do leave the door open a bit this allows the mach to air dry out and prevents the build up of mold ..Good Luck plz rate this post for me

SOURCE: Leak

It leaksYour washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: 

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time

During fill only
If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.


The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak. 


Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak. 



During drain and spin only
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. 


All the time
If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.


Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. 


Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. 


Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

Water is flowing back to shower tray macerator not switching on


Usually Saniflo requires 8" or 9" from top of p-trap to floor level, not from top of shower base to floor level. If the base is raised 8" then you will have enough room to fit a p-trap without cutting the concrete, if you had cut the floor to fit the p-trap then the base is not raised high enough to maintain the water pressure inside to engage the unit.

Every time we use the shower there is a very pugnent smell [fishy] all drains been checked, all pluming been checked, all water is fine. shower is 11 years old could this be the problem. the shower we have...


Also check the following things:

The control unit, hose and shower head - depending on the type, some heads will hold water. Remove them and check to see if they are exhibiting signs of mold or possible failure. At 11 years old, the element could be on its way out. If your Mira unit has an auxiliary pump, it should be checked as well. If it's the shower head, you can try to soak it in white vinegar to remove the smell, or simply replace it. If you have well water, you should consider flushing the system to be sure water isn't being trapped somewhere. Also, if the iron content of the water is high, or if your water softener isn't operating properly, that could be an issue as well. The Mira control unit may need to be de-scaled or otherwise checked.

Check the shower stall walls (with no tub) at the bottom where they meet the basin, unless the shower enclosure is all one piece. There could be mold behind the intersection of the walls and base.

Look for any trace of mold growth around any other enclosure components.

If the shower is in a tub, remove the overflow cover on the tub and see if there is any trace of mildew or mold in that area. Follow your nose.

Finally, check for any excessive build up of soap scum, although this is less likely because you'd notice it more readily.

Things like this can be tough to diagnose, so just take things slow and one at a time.

Bathtub leakes when the drain plug is activated, no leak when not


This usually is caused by a detiorated O ring that compresses to make a watertight seal at the transistion points from them drain shoe and overflow tube to the trap adapter. However it may be the trap adapter as well. Either way the best solution is to access the tub waste from the wall behind the tub drain and replace the necessary parts. Your issue is showing up because the gallons per minute/hour rate that the tub drains is far greater than the tub valve is allowed to fill the tub. This causes a greater volume of water to fill the tub waste and as such the backpessure is greater as the entire volume of water in the trap weir must be evacuated as opposed to when the tub is not plugged and the valve is ran requiring the trap weir to evacuate gradually. Some tub wates are made of metal and may have developed holes in them but they generally form along the pathway the water uses to drain. Unfortunately the only real solution is gain access to the tub wate and replace the defective part. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
