Why does my Pentair Booster LA01N sound as if it is spraying water internally ?

I think it's got air in it - that's what cavitation sounds like. Is the pickup gathering some air? Do you have an air bleeder near it someplace, or a valve you can use to bleed air out of it?

Code po171 on chevy malibu

The Code 0171 is indicating a lean fuel mix. This is often caused by air venting into the engine from an outside source. This scrambles the fuel mix and the engine management unit will add fuel to compensate.

Since the problem goes away when you use the brakes, the venting of air must be in the brake booster system. Check any tubing going to the brake booster, check valve, or the brake booster itself.

You can try using , while the engine is running, a spray mist of water from an old spray bottle. Use it around the brake booster which attaches to the Master cylinder, the Vacuum lines, and the plastic valve which connects those 2 parts. The engine RPM will change when you find the part that is drawing in the air. Then fix or replace that part.

I hooked up a new Polaris 280 pool cleaner to replace my Arneson Navigator and it doesn't move.

I would first take it out of the water and check for proper wheel RPM. If it is less than 28 RPM or you are getting no movement at all, it is going to be a problem with the power source. It is likely going to be that your booster pump is missing, malfunctioning, or is not installed properly on the pool cleaner. There are a few other things to check. Clean the skimmer, filter and pump basket, clearing any debris that restricts water flow. Check the hoses, connections and swivels for leaks. Try removing the blue restrictor disk from the UWF or if an adjustable gate valve is installed on the booster pump or cleaner line, open it completely so water can flow freely.

Wheels are not turning. water is spraying from back up valve continually so not enough pressure to put machine into action

If the pool cleaner is not running properly (too slowly or not at all), you will want to check the following things. Make sure that your wheel RPM is not less than 30. If it is, you will need to adjust the wheel RPM to make the cleaner have enough power to move properly. First check your filter screen and the debris baskets in your pump, filter, and skimmer. They could have a blockage that is causing the loss of power. Next, if you have an adjustable valve on the cleaner line, open it completely so water can flow freely to the cleaner. If that does not work, remove the blue restrictor disk from the UWF. Also, check the hoses, hose connections, and swivels for leaks that could cause loss of water pressure. If you think that it is simply your backup valve that is malfunctioning, you might need to replace it. The backup valve kit is part number G52.

Brakes go to the floor and the car run rough with...

Sounds like the Brake booster. There is also a valve on the vacuum line going to the booster. Its plastic and can crack and leak.

You can do a water spray test with a pump bottle. Spray the brake booster while the engine runs, spray the vacuum lines and the fittings. When the water is drawn into the engine it will change RPM or stall. The leak is where you sprayed to make the RPM change.

You will need to replace the defective part.

Dishwasher Basics The main parts of a dishwasher are: Control mechanism
The control mechanism is located inside the door behind the control panel. Many units use a simple electro-mechanical system: a timer determines how long each part of the cycle lasts and activates the proper function at the proper time (such as the detergent dispenser, wash spray and draining functions). Units that are more expensive might have a computerized control system. Modern units also have a door latch that must be closed for the unit to run. Some also have child safety locks. Intake valve
This is where water from the home's water supply enters the dishwasher. The unit's pump doesn't pump the water into the basin – when the intake valve opens, water pressure drives the water into the unit. Pump
An electric motor powers the pump. During the pump cycle, the pump forces water up into the spray arms. During the drain cycle, the pump directs the water into the drain hose. The motor-pump assembly is mounted beneath the basin, in the center of the dishwasher. There are two main types of pump:
  • Reversible
    These pumps switch between pumping water to the spray arms and pumping water to the drain by reversing the direction of the motor. Reversible pumps are usually vertically mounted. dishwasher-11.jpg
    -->Reversible pump

  • Direct-drive
    The motor runs in one direction, so the direction of flow is switched from spray arms to drain by a solenoid that opens and closes the appropriate valves or switches one hose connection to another. Non-reversible pumps are usually horizontally mounted. dishwasher-12.jpg
    -->Direct-drive pump

Dishwashers can be installed in either a portable or a permanent configuration. Portable units have finished sides and top that can be used as a countertop. When not in use, the machine sits in place next to the wall. When it's time to run a cycle, the unit can be rolled on casters over to the sink, where it connects to the faucet and plugs into a nearby outlet. In a permanent installation, the dishwasher goes underneath the existing countertop and bolts into place. Hoses underneath the kitchen sink connect directly to the hot water line and the drain line, and the unit usually plugs in under the sink as well. Both types of installation require a 120-volt grounded line.

Polaris in pool cleaner back water single spout not water passing

Check your wheel RPM. With these automatic pool cleaners, you can manually adjust the RPM. Low RPM could be the cause of the problem. To check the RPM, first mark a single wheel side tire, Turn the pump on, hold the cleaner under water and count the wheel revolutions for one minute. If the RPM is less than 28, you might need to remove the blue restrictor disk from the UWF or adjust the gate valve on the booster pump. Also, this may sound simple, but make sure there is no debris lodged in the wheels/axles. Check your filter screen in your in-line filter and make sure that it is clear of debris. You will also want to check your hoses, connections, and swivel to make sure that there are no leaks.

Mold and smell from Maytag washer

The mold will be growing in the upper parts of the agitator basket above the water line. Spray these areas with a bleach/water mixture using a spray bottle. Turn off the hot water valve to your washer. Disconnect the hose connected to this valve. Connect a leak free garden hose to the valve. Connect a garden sprayer to the other end of the garden hose. Turn the hot water valve back on. Check for leaks. Use the garden sprayer to rinse and remove the mold. Be careful to keep all of the water in the agitator basket. Turn off the hot water valve. Reconnect the hose from the washer to this valve. Turn the hot water valve back on. Check for leaks. Run a wash cycle with an empty load.
