Replace the valve, and as long as you have let the unit sit for 24-36 hours since the water leaked, all should be OK. Make sure you look the unit all over for accumulated water and wipe up with a towel. If water sprayed on the timer, then use a hair dryer on it for 30-45 minutes until it no longer drips any water. Then again, allow 24-36 hours for it to dry out completely before reapplying power.

Tip

The washing machine leaks during filling?


The possibilities are as follows:-- Check the Air gap device and the Tube in the washing machine for leaking problem.
The air gap device is located at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. It’s made of translucent plastic. If the air-gap components worn out or cracks, it has to be replace.
Now if the Air gap device checks out ok. Then the other possible part to be checked is tube.
The tube is connected between the water-inlet valve and the air-gap. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.
These will help. Thanks.

My washer leaks sometimes when filling up.Now all the time could it be the pump?


Hello there
Depending on where the leak is coming from it could be anything from a hose that has came loose or is cracked or the tub seal could be going bad or yes it could be the pump or even the hoses that hook up to the machine could be leaking and even that part that the hoses hook up to on the machine can start to leak over time so i would try to tip the machine on its side AFTER YOU UNPLUG IT OF COURSE and inspect all hoses and the other items that i have mentioned and see if there is any wet spots any where in there ok then try to make the repairs as necessary and retest the machine ok
Hope this helps please feel free to rate this solution for me ok
Best regards Mike

Water leaks under machine when filling


Hello, if your washer leaks only when filling then you have to 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 tube. If the spout cracks or breaks free of it's mounting, it can cause a leak.
Thanks

Leaks water when filling up.


If the washer is leaking only during the fill and not all the time, the problem is most likely caused by a faulty air gap device, a leaking water inlet valve, or the tube. The air gap is a small device that keeps the washwater from being siphoned into the household water supply. It is usually located mid-way or at the end of the black hose that comes from the water inlet valve. Usually it is made of transluscent plastic. Look for leaks or cracks.

The tube is a rubber tube that runs between either the water inlet valve and either the air gap or the inlet spout. Check for leaks.

The water inlet spout - most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the flow of water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free from it's mounting, it can cause leaks.

These are the things to look for if the washer is only leaking during fill. Hope this helps and best wishes.

Karcher k3.98 pressure washer not holding good presure


Dear svoegele2,
Your machine is still good. You have to remove the 4 screws that are holding the head unit. The head unit consists of 2 parts. The outer part has Intake of water and delivery of water under pressure. It has an injector. It also has the chemical inlet attachment. This Detergent inlet valve can be replaced by a new one. (The bottom part of the head has the suction and delivery valves.)
Now this unit of 2 heads is held down with a steel cover. First release the holding down bolts( they could be allen screws or Torx Screws). If the inlet valve for the chemical is still good and t is turned 90 dgrees, twist it slowly to be alligned with the slot in the metal cover. But if this is broken, just remove the metal head and then remove by twisting,..the detergent inlet..(which is also a non return valve).
Carfull if you seperate the top half of the head from the bottom head...because underneath there is a smal spring and a small valve. Do not lose these.
Now if the machine has no pressure..change the bottom half of the head. If the machine is switching on and off...change the upper half f the head. Do not forget that small spring between the 2 heads If where the inlet for detergent in the head is cracked..this top head must be renewed for this reason also.
If all is OK...but only the inlet..where the detergent is broken....remove slowly the detergent inlet, by twisting a little,....and replace by a new one. First see that you have the NEW inlet of detergent before doing anything . Because if you do not find to buy a new on....and there is no damage to the upper head...you can continue using the machine,...but with out having detergent. It is better using it without detergent than throwing the machine away. One final hint. Try the machine with the plastic cover removed,..so to see if there are any leaks or cracks in the head unit.(wear safety gogles). If only the inlet for detergent is broken and no water is escaping from it or the head,...buy a new inlet detergent valve. If you do without detergent and you cannot find to buy a detergent inlet valve,...just close the machine and use it without detergent. When myself I service such machines...I change the whole head unit and detergent valve. Then the machine will be as good as new. And the spares are not that expensive. Better than buying another machine.
Regards,
Fulltech.
