You have clogged drain, or the sink drain is not vented.

Each drain must have a vent or the drain gets slow, and gets clogged.
You can add a quick vent inside the wall, as long as the dwelling has main stack vent. Consult local plumber for local code.

Soap dispenser is still full after 4 trys. I ran the washer with the dispenser out and it seems that the water is not coming out of the jets above the soap dispenser, only the bleach dispenser?


Did you try cleaning up the water filters where the water hoses connect to the washer in the back? I had mine clogged with sediment one time and water was not coming out properly.

Sounds like a clog at or beyond the P trap of the sinks. With water coming back into the sinks, it has to be part of the drain line that is common to both sinks. If you try and unclog the sink, work on the side that does NOT have the garbage disposal in it. A small hand snake for sinks might do the job. You could also try a plunger on either side, but when you do, put a wet rag over the other drain so you are not just pushing air back and forth. Work on one side with the plunger while holding the wet towel down tight over the other drain. Sounds like a clog that was there prior to you putting the lemon in the GD.

I have a brand new faucet not getting any water pressure? Water Pressure was fine before putting new faucet in. How do i troubleshoot this problem and get my bathroom sink running properly again?


It is very common when you first install any faucet, for the aerator on the very end of the faucet (where the water comes out into the sink) to plug up with rust or sediment. Because you had to turn off water supply, it churns up this sediment in pipes. It initially plugs up the filter/screen in aerator. Just unscrew the end & flush it out with water. Then reattach.

The water in the sink is returned to the dishwasher


The sink pipes may be backing up or the washer outlet hose non return flap is not working anymore & water is back flowing into dishwasher.

Electrolux error code 1, how to reset.


Also got error code 01. Unplugged dishwasher, turned off water supply, disconnected water supply line at sink so it had slack to pull dishwasher out of built-in space, removed two wood screws holding dishwasher to counter, pulled it out onto floor, put it on blocks as reader suggested, tilted to side 45 degrees, water drained out onto rags. Then restored to upright, restored supply line and opened valve at sink, plugged back in, unit automatically reset, returned to built-in, reinstalled screws to counter. Worked like a charm. Took more time to read everyone's advice than to do the job (about 30 min.). Thanks.

No water pressure in bath tub after turning off hot water heater


It could be back flowing into the hot water heater tank which is not full because of the leak. Even though the valve is closed on the cold water entry side, there is probably no valve on the exit side. That is how it is returning to the tank.

HOW DO I DEFROST FREEZER


Hi,

Most modern freezers don't need to be defrosted, but should be washed out and cleaned periodically. Following are steps for defrosting freezers that need it -generally when ice builds up to a thickness between 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch.

  1. Step 1 Turn the freezer off. Controls may be inside the refrigerator.
  2. Step 2 Remove all food from the freezer and store in an ice chest while you are defrosting.
  3. Step 3 Remove ice in the freezer compartment. This can be done by: a) letting the freezer door stand open until ice melts; b) putting a pan of hot water in the freezer compartment and closing the door, then checking for melting ice and reheating the water every 10 to 15 minutes; c) using a hair dryer by aiming warm air at ice in freezer until it melts.
  4. Step 4 Pick up ice and water as it melts with a dishcloth or sponge and deposit into sink.
  5. Step 5 Use a sponge or dishcloth and a bowl of warm water to thoroughly wipe out inside of freezer once the freezer is cleared of ice.
  6. Step 6 Turn the freezer back on, close the door and let run for 10 to 15 minutes before returning food to the freezer.
  7. Step 7 Put food back into freezer and close the door.

Water pump does not work when i turn on hot water tap


Since the cold water works, the problem is not the pump. Look for a blockage or possibly a major leak in the hot water system. if you have a kitchen sink and bathroom sink, are both hot water outlets not working? Does the water heater have shut off valve , or is its drain still open from when you winterized it (and the water running out to the ground instead of to the faucet?

Icemaker and water


Check to see if the line valve to the fridge is open. It should be at the nearest main water source (Kitchen sink)
