Says 'empty water' but empty - leave to cool and works again for 30 minutes?

My dryer is saying 'empty water' but it is empty - if I open the door and let it cool down it goes for another 30 minutes or so. What's wrong with it?

Might be a faulty water level sensor or it could be the sensor has some fabric softener on it.

Why does the water in my radiator empty out after 30 minutes of driving?


You have a cooling system leak..

Most likely a split hose or water pump seal.

If you need to drive it , top it up and leave cap loose, this will stop pressure build up and slow down the coolant leak..

You will need to pressure check cooling system for lactation of leak.

I have a 05 Dodge Magnum I Drive it in like maybe 30 minute and it gets hot I let it cool off and it will start again


You need to check your coolant, and water pump, if ok then check your cooling fan. When the car gets hot, leave running, open hood and make sure fan is working

Basement flooded and got approx 12 inches of water in bottom of dryer let sit for a week to dry before trying when pushing start button will come on but wont continue running unless you hold button in ...


Sorry to say but you will need to replace the motor. After water gets in you can rarely save the motor no matter how long you let it dry.There is an internal over load inside the motor that is cutting out after 30 seconds and once it cools for 15 or 20 minutes then it resets .Hope you found this information helpful and thank you for using Fix ya.

Ice keeps building up in freezer. Then the refrigerator stops cooling. You can get the ice off the vents in bottom back of freezer and it will start cooling again but only last a couple days before it...


Your freezer coil needs a good defrost. You are getting only a little bit of the ice off. It stops cooling because the ice acts like a insulator over the coil so it is unable to cool. Was to get this done is to empty it out and shut if off and leave the door open or maybe a hair dryer or even so warm water.
I hope this helps.

Zanussi ZWD1680W Front Load All-in-One... Problem:


With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.

Freezer seal


Turn the machine on to full empty all contents and leave for about 30 minutes then try to close door if doesn't work check the seal for splits.
