Question about Home

1 Answer

With power on, when button is depressed on tub, there is a clicking sound. With power on, there is a humming sound but pump won't run. System is 4 years old and was used only infrequently.

I visually checked the pump and pipes I can see, there's no indication of problems.

    Talking to a local plumber about it, we collectively came to the conclusion that it's probably the pump motor. He'll be at the house on Friday to check it out. Thanks to all for your contriuions.

    Sorry, my comment got a bit screwed up when I hit a wrong button. Anyhow, thanks for all your help.

    I called a plumber, he checked the pump, etc. and decided he had to remove it and do further checks in his shop. He replaced the damaged capacitor next

    After replccing the capacitor everything worked fine.

Sounds like the capacitor was the issue. Glad to hear the Bath Pump works good again.

Nothing stays new if not used. Sometimes things get jammed in a certain position for want of use. Please try and rotate the pump manually and then see if it works on its own.

What you need is a new air switch for the back of the motor. The air tubing connects to it on the motor. that is probably what is clicking when you push the air button on the top of the tub. Once you change that air switch you will be back in HOT WATER !!
Should be a TBS-310 or TBS-301 latching air switch is the one you need. Either of those models will work in a Kohler pump.

Before replacing the pump check for power at the pump... if you have power and the pump is not running then the pump motor is bad....

If not then check why the switch is not working.... usually they are an air switch.... a hole in the hose can cause the switch not to activate....

or the switch it's self has gone bad... that is fairly common also....

You will find your problem in one of these areas....

We service a ton of Aquaglass products. Need to know what kind of control we are talking about. Is this an electronic button you are pushing or an air button you push down?

SOURCE: Hi, power was lost in the house about 4 weeks ago

On the Fleck 5600 the timer motor also serves as the drive motor. It is on the back side of the control in the upper left hand corner. Reset the time of day and see if it keeps proper time. If not the timer motor needs to be replaced. If the control is an sxt model the circuit board may be bad from a power surge.

My Jacuzzi Tub won't start

Try compressed air through the system,careful not to use too much pressure. Also you may use another water pump to push water through system and free up the motor. The easiest thing may be to get a new motor though.

When I push the button on my american standard jacuzzi tub I hear the hum of the motor but jets don't come on

In my case I took the motor out and used a screw driver to turn the impeller in the front of the pump and the fins inthe back. Put it back together and it worked. I then used 2 tablesoons of dishwashing detergent and 1/2 cup bleach and ran it for 20 minutes to clean and degrease the impellers

Pump hums but won't run

awwhhh it sounds as if you stored your pump dry all winter long ill bet, well ya just cant do that after it pumps salt water all summer , salt has crusted up inside pump and valves , try a hot water dose (not on motor) that might get it going again (repeat several times)
otherwise your gonna need to take it all apart clean in hot water and grease all up with foodgrade waterproof grease (see kitchen faucet parts section of hardware store)
on a salt water pool you have to store your filter and pump filled/capped with RV antifreeze (foodgrade) any good rv store sells it
salt wont crust up inside then

Washer hums but will not fill or start/ spin has water pressure and tub seems to move freely the model #on tag LTF2140ES0

If it doesn't fill it won't start any other cycle unless you move it ahead yourself. If it hums I am thinking it is trying to fill. Sounds like the valve is turning on to let water in but it is not getting through. My washer has a screen where the hoses go on and sometimes the screen becomes plugging with scale. If that is ok then the solenoid must be coming on but the valve is stuck. Does neither hot or cold settings work? Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

Kenmore dryer Tub will not turn freely. Feels as if it's hung up. When you you press the start button it will just make a humming noise.

A guess, sounds like you are hearing the motor running but no tub belt as it is probably broke. If you are asking then you probably don't know how to fix it so you should call a repairman. Or the tub guides are wore out either way a repairman can help.

Amana front load washer error code "nd". Door is

Hello there and welcome to fixya
From what you're describing it sounds like the drain pump is blocked. The nd error code indicates "no drain". If the unit can't drain it won't spin. You're going to have to slide the washer out far enough to remove the rear panel; be careful not to damage the floor. Once you get the rear panel off you will see the pump. Be sure to have plenty of towels & a small container to catch water. I am sending you instructions from the service manual to remove and replace the pump. Another possibility is the drain line is blocked or something is stuck in the tub to pump hose.
