Normally it is a thin one going up to the board, from near your pump or filter below. Disconnect it from below, clean, blow - you should hear a click at your pressure flow meter above. It denotes it is well.
Click if helped.

SOURCE: Calypso - water goes straight to drain hose-not drum

the hose may still be filled from last cycle. try to put machine in final spin mode where all water from previous wash will be spun out the drain hose. once a siphon is started it can only be stopped by introducing air into the drain hose.

SOURCE: Brand new washer, E4 Error

OK this should not happen. It might be that the connectors to the watervalve is lose. E4 is a sign that the watervalves are closed. You should contact the store you bought it from and have them give you a replacement. Do not open it for now as it will void your warranty. You know it is not the pressure as the other never had this problem
This however is the link for all the parts you need. or might need.
Have a good one and good luck changing this one out and please dont take no for an answer

Washing machine drain problem

Here's a few instruction's How to Diagnose Washing Machine Problems

Step 1:
If the washer won't start, check the power cord or reset the circuit breaker depending on the issue. It may be overheated and shut off temporarily. Let it cool for 30 minutes, and if it still won't start, call a professional.

Step 2:
If the motor transmission failed or the drive belt has broken, these need the assistance of a professional.

Step 3:
If the washer won't drain, clean out the drain hose and straighten any kinks. If the drain hose fits too tightly in the standpipe, adjust it to allow for a minimum of 1.25 inches for airflow so water can drain.

Step 4:
If the washer won't fill or fills slowly, turn the faucet handles counterclockwise as far as possible. This is usually the result of partially open faucets.

Step 5:
Call a profession if the washer overfills. This means the water-inlet valve or switch is defective.

Kindly regards,

The blue snowflake is for the AC. The 3 fan icons are for low, medium, and high settings. The icon with the cup with over flowing water means empty the water tank. The cup next to the snow flake is the dehumidifier. The cup next to that means tank is empty and the clock is the timer. If the front part is only blowing out hot or warm air I say you got a broken one unfortunately. The back part blows out hot air which is why there is an exhost hose attachment.

Water keep run and it overflows,dosnt start

The water level control isn't working. First, I'll describe how it's supposed to work, then give you the troubleshooting steps for a top-loading machine.

There is a port on the side of the outer tub somewhere below the low water level point. A plastic hose (usually transparent) runs from this port to the water level switch. As the water rises, it compresses the air inside the tube. This air exerts pressure on a diaphragm which operates the level switch. The trip point for the switch is set by a cam connected to the level selector knob.

Failure points: broken or leaky hose, clogged tub port, ruptured diaphragm, stuck or broken switch.

First, unplug the machine. Remove screws on the back of the control panel if it appears they hold it to the back panel of the machine. Remove screws from the front trim at the bottom of the control panel. Now you should be able to tilt the panel forward to get at the backside of the water level control.

Inspect the hose connection on the back of the water level control and repair if it appears it could be leaky (for example, hardened and loose or cracked).

You can test the switch by detaching the hose and blowing into the port if the switch is set to the lowest level setting. You should be able to trip it with moderate air pressure, not much more than you use to blow a balloon (literally several inches of water, to use a common pressure measurement scale). The best test is to attach an ohmmeter or continuity tester to the switch leads to verify operation - one terminal is common and goes to power, one terminal is normally closed and goes to the water valves, and the remaining terminal goes to the timer. However, if you can hear or feel the switch click when you blow into the port, it is probably good.

Next, gently tug on the hose where it goes down into the machine. It should be attached at the other end! Try firing some compressed air (about 5-10 psi) into the hose to blow out any clogs. Reassemble and test the machine. If it still overflows, you'll have to open the top to inspect the tub connection.

Note: I once worked on a machine that was clogged with a bacterial film inside the port. The customer used well water with only basic particle filtration. There was also bacterial buildup in the hose inlet screens, so I advised the customer to add an anti-bacterial filter to the plumbing to prevent a recurrence of the problem, and suggested doing a no-clothes soak with bleach to clear out the rest of the little beasties.

Washer will fill but it does not stop

Your water level switch is stuck.
Probably due to soap scum in the air dome line.
Remove the control console screws to access the water level switch.
Remove the small plastic hose from the water level switch and blow through it to dislodge the blockage.
If it is difficult to blow through,remove the front panel and take the hose off at the air dome on the side of the tub.
Push a small wire into the air dome to clear the clog.
Replace the hose on both ends.
Set the timer for SPIN and run a spin cycle.
Then retry the water level fill.
If it does not fill correctly,replace the water level switch.

1999 Oldsmobile Bravada Heating Problem

when engine is cold remove radiator cap and check coolant level,sounds like it is really low and has an air pocket in it.

Overheats in traffic. The heat does not work. Does

It can be a couple of things....first one is easy.

1. Low engine coolant level. Just remove the cap on the readiator (engine cold) and check the level of your antifreeze. If it is low, replentish it. This could be your problem.

2. Water pump has failed internally. Easy way to check, start your Benz, squeeze the radiator hose while it is running. Better to do this when the engine is cold. If you start to feel pressure in the upper hose, water pump may still be good. Should feel like rushing water going through the hose.

3. Thermostat. Could be a bad thermostat. If you run the heater and there is no heat but you have air flow...could be the thermostat. Bad air blend door actuator could do this also.

Hope this gives you a starting point!

Washer will not fill up!

The water is siphoning out as it fills. Your drain hose is too low or has a air block. Remove the drain hose from the drain. Set the washer to fill. Hold the drain hose up higher than the washer. If it fills correctly and starts agitating,correct the drain hose problem.

When i turn my waher on it starts agitating without any water in it

You can a defective water level switch or a clogged air line going to the switch.
Open the control panel to access the water level switch. Remove the hose from the water level switch and blow through it. Blow very hard until it is clear. Replace the hose on the switch. Set the machine to spin and turn it on. Let it spin for 1 minute. Turn it off then back to fill. If it does not work OK then, replace the water level switch.
