What is the something? Is more of it coming out? Take the filter out and run the water in the unit without should work. If the water runs clean, the problem is the filter. Don't shake the filter prior to installation.

Leaks water out of vent on sink during drain cycle


The issue is with the water not draining as something might be blocking the drain pump assembly thus the water is leaking. To solve this issue you'll have to take the front lower access panel out and then clean the drain pump assembly completely, also clean the impeller and chopper assembly located at the bottom of the unit. After this is done the issue should be resolved, if not then check the float switch mechanism and make sure that is fine. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

what you can check,

  1. the float in the tub.their may be something caught under it
  2. the water valve,use a meter set to check ac voltage and check for 120 volts ac at the plug to it,if has 120 when supposed to fill valve is bad so long at it has water supply to it
  3. the float switch,use meter set to lowest ohms setting and remove the 2 wires on float switch and check for continunity(zero ohms) if meter reads OL replace float switch
  4. the control,check for 120 volts ac to float switch when supposed to fill, if 120 at fill portion yet no fill ,replace control
  5. water supply,if uses flex tube something in cabinet under sink may have pinched water line
Good luck,i hope this helps

I am changing the filters on an AC30 RO unit. I am trying to find a step-by-step instruction set to ensure that I do not cause back contamination or some other problem in the changing process.

If your filtration system is like mine, you turn off water, release pressure by pushing button, and then untwist the filter holder. Cartridge filters are reversible. If your filter holder unscrews, you can clean it out. Use hydrogen peroxide to clean any water container, for example a water heater with rotten-egg smell, water purifier, air conditioning pan, thermos, dehumidifier etc. You can also pour boiling water into the filter holder.

Hydrogen peroxide is also first aid for cuts, minor skin infections, chigger bites, spider bites, mosquito itching, and sink disinfectant. It is an oral debriding agent. It is not a drinkable substance, but a bit in the water pipes will not do any harm. It is perfectly safe for cleaning your filter.

I have a 1982 kz ltd. after it starts and runs it leaks gas out of the bottom of #1 carb

You are probably dealing with rust in the tank. Clean your tank, check your fuel petcock to make sure the filter , on the intake , is still there, maybe add an extra inline filter just in case. Other possibilities, the float needle is worn out or the float is saturated with fuel and is sinking in gas. Take apart ,clean, and inspect the carburetor parts. See if the float sinks or floats in gas. Inspect the needle for wear on the sides and the rubber tip.

The overflow? line on the top of the sink leaks during some cycles. Is the line plugged up or should I look for something else?

Hello Rdmkl, That is actually called the "air-break" or air gap device. It's purpose is to prevent the dishwasher from sucking back any water from th sink trap and/or disposal when the sink is being used, etc.

You should be able to gently remove the cap from this and then clean out the filter element and flush the line with some warm to hot water to clean out any buildup in the line.

Otherwise, everything is working just fine. The reason you're likey seeing the water leaking out of the air break is due to it being gunjked up with debris, so a good cleaning shoud take care of everything.

If after cleaning it you still are getting some water leakage, then you'll want to remove the drain line going from the air break to the sink drain connection and clean the line by flushing it with hot, soapy water until it runs freely.

Hope that you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Dishwasher top spray bar does not spray due to low water fill

Check the water hose going from the sink to the dishwasher to make sure it is'nt clogged, if there's a water shut off valve under the sink make sure it's fully open, also check to make sure the spray arms at the bottom of the dishwasher that supply water to the top rack is clean with no debris or obstructions in the spray hole's, the water entering the dishwasher should be at a warm temp, if it's cold the dishes will not get clean, you should have good water pressure from the house supply for it to fill properly, the float is also called a flood switch, it should not be activated during the water fill cycle, if it's activated it will shut off the water inlet valve and the wash cycle will stop or the dishwasher will drain, if your still having wash problems it could be a defective water inlet valve or a bad timer, if that's the case you might have to call an appliance repair man, hope this helps, good luck.

Ice tastes funny and a strange metallic or plastic type smell

Sometimes the smell comes from something in the freezer or even the refrigeratior and makes the ice taste funny. My suggestion is to clean out the freezer compartment of anything frozen that has been there a while and may have freezer burn. That may be the funny smell you are experiencing.
Hope this will help you.

Hi my Zanussi DI 720 dishwasher is not filling up with water i have checked the water supply which appears to be fine. Can anyone help.


If a dishwasher runs but doesn't fill, either something is wrong with its water supply system or it is draining water too soon.

1) First make sure the water is turned on. Check the hot-water supply stop valve, normally located under the sink. Open it all the way by turning it counterclockwise. If there is no reason this would have been turned off since the last time the dishwasher worked, go on to the next step.

2) Turn off the power to the dishwasher.

3) When the dishwasher is cool, look for the float inside the dishwasher; this is usually a small plastic dome or cylinder mounted inside at the tub's base, near the front. When you move most types of floats up and down, you can hear them click because they trip a lever (they are spring-loaded).

Lift out the float mechanism, and clean around the float tube. Many floats must be disconnected from below; to do this you'll have to remove the lower access panel. Rinse off the float, replace it in the tube, and make sure it moves up and down freely.

4) If you're experienced with minor repair work, shut off the hot-water valve to the appliance. Locate the water intake valve, behind the dishwasher's bottom front panel; disassemble the valve to reveal the screen; clean debris from the screen; and reassemble. If the screen doesn't appear to be blocked, call a repairperson

Hope this helps
