You first need to check the drain hose .The hose needs to form a loop higher than the drain pipe that it is attached to.If their is no loop than the water can come back into the dishwasher

Aquaglass whirlpool tub


Does you tub have the air system installed? If so you may have the air system advanced function. There are two types of air system advanced functions.
  1. With water level detector: A 30 second Drying cycle Will automatically start 20 minutes after the control has detected there is no more water remaining in the tub.
  2. With out water level detector: A 30 second Drying cycle Will automatically start 20 minutes after the complete stop of the blower.
If you have the first type this may be normal or the water level sensor may be dirty or faulty.
If you have the second type it may be a control board problem.
. Hope this helps.

How do you clean the jets in a whirlpool tub? Is there any product to put in water and run jets to clean them?


Put white vinegar in the water and run it through your tub. Fill the tub to it's maximum running capacity, which is normally just above the jets, and pour a gallon of vinegar in the water with it. Let it run with the vinegar for about 20 minutes, then turn it off and let the vinegar sit in the jets for about 30 minutes. Then start up the jets again for about another 10 minutes and drain. Then run plan water through the jets for about 15 minutes, drain and that should do it. I would recommend doing this at least once every 2 months depending on your water type and how often you use the tub.

Water does not flow through the drain


hello,
~Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose.
~Check pump impeller for damage
~Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out Make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle.
~Check timer for not letting the dishwasher pause.
~If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, check knock-out plug at connection.
~Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.
~Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off. (if yes, replace the inlet valve).
thanks

Our whirlpool washing machine wont drain and light for clean pump is on what do i do


Most likely your drain hose is clogged on the back end of the machine. With the appliance UNPLUGGED, a technician can get a wire of some sort to snake out the clog.

This is known as the purge cycle, it is very normal. It is to blow out any remaining water from the air jets. If it was to allow water to stand in the pipes, it would start to smell and grow algae, which would then clog the small air holes, nothing to be alarmed about.

I have an Eljer jet bathtub with a smell to the water when we bat


What you smell is algae forming in the pipes. If you have small black particles in the tub when running the jets, it is algae. Fill the tub with hot water, add 2 teaspoons of cascade dish soap and 1/2 cup bleach. run the tub for 15 minutes and drain. fill tub with cold water, run for 15 minutes and drain, tub is now ready to use. repeat as necessary.

Washing machine does not drain out when cycle ended, water left in drum, there is a filter bottom front only opens slightly to release some water, should this be able to be taken out to clean it


Most washing machines are based on the same principles: there is an inner drum with holes around the entire drum walls, this is where you place your clothes. This drum sits inside of another drum that has a drain hole at the bottom of it that connects to a pump motor. When the machine is in spin cycle it uses centrifugal force to remove the water from the clothes and it escapes the interior drum via the holes and is captured by the drum with the drain in it. The pump motor has an impeller which may be made of plastic or metal which often fails resulting in the issue you have described. Depending on your make and model it may be possible to replace the impeller itself or you may have to replace the entire pump.While most are easy fixes they are labor consuming. Cleaning of the filter in front of the machine will be of little consequence to resolve the issue. I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya. Please let me know if I can be of anymore assistance.
