Troubleshooting after cleaning out filter strainer
Hello, saw your post about cleaning out the filter strainer. THANKS. That did work the first time. 6 months later, when we cleaned out the filter again, it now will not go into spin mode and just sits - wet soaking clothes.
Any help would be appreciated on this one, as well.

Hello, first thing is check is the strainer going into the solenoid valve for sediment, if there is clean the strainer and reinstall. If the strainer in clean the check if you are getting 24 volts to the solenoid valve, if you have voltage and the solenoid does not let the water thru replace the solenod valve.
If sand is getting back into the pool, the strainer in the filter is broken or out of place. The filter has to be disassembled, sand must be removed and the strainer must be inspected for cracks or leakage. New parts are available from most pool supply stores.
Hello- This unit has a sump at bottom of tub that can get blocked, causing low or no water flow. Remove racks, water tube, and the accumulator cover to get to it. Clean the strainer and chopper screen. This should solve the problem. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed. -Thanks- Ed
Hello- This pump system has a strainer and screen that can trap debris against the pump blades, stopping motor. Turn off power. Pull torx screws holding pump cover and strainer. Remove and clean out debris. Check to see if motor turns. If not, it is locked up and needs to be replaced. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed. -Thanks- ED
Sound like the needle and seat are dirty. Also check the fuel strainer / filter for debris. Usually if the needle and seat are dirty so is the filter / strainer & bowl.
Needle and seat item(s) 24 and 24 original factory Parts manual under carb. at the dealer:
(called float valve in description)
Sounds like the float valve is either not closing or is dirty and not allowing carb to fill to the proper level. i.e causes fuel starvation AND carb over filling intermittently. You can clean the needle and still have a bad seat for the needle.
Find and replace or clean the fuel filter also. If your carb has a manifold and nut on the side of it for the fuel manifold remove the nut (actually a bolt type thing) and clean the strainer inside the manifold.
Hello. The drain filter, or strainer, is usually located at the bottom front of the machine, behind the kick panel. This is the small panel below the main front panel. Remove it and you'll see a hose coming from the drum to a canister. This is the strainer, and has a screw lid. Caution when opening this....There will be water. Be prepared.... Unscrew the lid, and remove the strainer and clean. If it is difficult to remove, try gripping the tab in the middle of the lid with pliers or channel locks to get some leverage. I always put a little silicone spray on the "O" ring and threads when I reassemble the strainer. This should solve your problem.

Hello I'm an M.B. tech.. It sounds like the fuel strainer is clogged. It is a very common problem on M.B. diesel engines of that era. Diesel fuel develops algea inside the fuel tank and after a period of time it clos the strainer. The strainer is at the bottom of the fuel tank where the big fuel hose attatches to the tank. The hose unscrews frome the strainer and then the strainer unscrews from the tank. There is a filter on the strainer that can be cleaned and reinstalled. In the engine compartment there is a small primer pump that is by the fuel rack inline with the feed hose from the tank. If you turn the knob(clear or white plastic) on the pump it will retract allowing you to use it as a hand pump. If when attempting to retract hand pump it is sucked back down and will not stay retracted that means you have a restriction in the line- your fuel strainer is clogged is the most likley problem. replace both fuel filters during repair for best results. Good Luck
check the inlet valve solenoid there are three of them one might be o/c,also using to much soap can cause this or a coin stuck in the sump hose near the pump.the filter is in the valve but normally isnt the problem
Harm, remove the lower panel and you will see the filter right in front. Unscrew the filter strainer and clean all the lint and debris. This machine has a pressure switch that won't allow a high spin if it detects water in the tub. Therefore you get these pauses and slow tumlbe. Try this and see if it's normal after cleaning the filter...Catriver...post back
