There should be two small holes - double check your rinse pressure gauge to see if you have enough pressure going into the machine.

If you can see a constant water pressure from the hot and cold, chances are the water solenoid valves are ok.

I would look towards resetting to factory and checking the main control unit.

My VW Bora 2001model cant drive on D coz everytime it goes to change the first gear it super revs as though on Neutral, so now am driving on the third gear which uses up my gas and it still doesnt change...

if you are able to change the transmission filters try that first is that doesnt help change the shift selenoids out they are under the filter and the filter is under the trannys pan. if it were me and i dont want to just take it to a transmission shop , i would go to TPS or any parts house and get a filter, pan gasket, the shift selenoids and new fluid and change it all at once. if that doest fix the problem then you will have to get it looked at. but before you do anything right now go to it and crank it and let it idle for about 10 min leave running and check the fluid level to see if its low if it is it will make it do that it may just be as simple as putting transmission fluid in it GOOD LUCK

Can you explain the descaling process?

when removing coffe scum or 'scale' try using a small amount of bleach, or a concentrated briquette of cleaning chemicals especially for coffe stains. CLR works too. fill the container with the substance and generous water past the scum line. let it sit for 30min-an hour. you'll notice the scum lifting. might have to repeat the process, but it is very important to not add too much soap, and try using scalding hot water. thoroughly rinse the container to avoid toxicity.

Sounds like the selenoid valves are backwards. Or the water hooked up backwards. Or actually like the cold water one isnt working at all. Either the selenoid or the screen stopped up. Even on cold water i noticed that some washers use warm. But all of them uses cold water to rinse. At least the last rinse. So when it uses cold water there isnt any. First of all, Switch the two wires with each other and wash on hot and see if cold works then. If not Take the selenoid out and apart then clean the diaphram real good with soap and water then pup back together.

My Suzuki GSXR400 was running smoothly but after awhile it slows down and the engine stops. When i tried to crank and start the engine it works but it did'nt run. I noticed that Oil spills from the engine...

Yes that could be the reason as when the gasket leaks the the engine slows down as the compression leaks from the gasket. And so does the oil, in small quantities. Not a major expense, so get it done before the engine is harmed. But take a guarantee out of your mechanic before giving him the job.

I have a Bosch dishwasher Model number SHU4302UC. The dishwasher takes about four hours to wash dishes. During the rinse cyle it can be running for over an hour and I will open it to look in side and find...

possibilities are that of an inefficient heating element ie..scaled up if hard water area especially. whilst the cycle is being completed then the components are working... so other than the element check the drainage for blockages (slow draining adds time) & also water pressure as low pressure adds time to the filling..

JDB4950 Doesnt clean and i think hard water is the blame

Hard water is tough to overcome in a dishwasher, but there are some things you can do to compensate. First, use more detergent than normal. I have hard water and I put extra detergent in on every load. I just put it on the door when I fill the regular detergent dispenser. Also make sure that you always use rinse aid.

The new tablet detergents seem to work better for hard water, but they are expensive. Try a few different brands and see which one works best. A good way to judge is to look at the heating element and see if it has white scale deposits on it. If you use a box of a new detergent brand and it looks better or worse than it did before, it's a good indication.

Washer is starting in mid cycle and not filling with water

Check to see if the cold water selenoid works on washer. You can do this by turning the switch to cold/cold. It sounds the cold water side has gone out which will cause the washer to stop because it rinses on cold

Machine won't stop filling

Sounds like your solinoid valve needs replacing. It cuts the water off when it has reached the right level.
