I the filter is not very clean the pump will not push hard enough to hold the tracks onto the walls. Try running without filter in a very clean pool for a few minutes to see if it solves the climb walls replace the filter and clean the unit

The motor pack is having trouble and will need to be replaced (most likely). For help finding a service center that can perform the inspection and repairs check Hayward's site at and fill in the information requested. Be sure to select product repair or service and robotic cleaners to limit the response to those able to fix these cleaners. We are in S.E. Michigan and are one of the centers for Tiger Shark cleaners.

My Tiger Shark is on its third season. The first two it worked fine. This season it stopped climbing the vertical walls, so I took it back to my dealer and they sent it to The Whitmer Co for repairs. Got...

Get your dealer or the repair center to issue a call tag to get it back and fix it right this time. If they are a reputable repair center they will cover the return freight charge and re-diagnose the problem. It may need additional repairs than what was originally quoted and those may have an additional cost but they should at least cover the return freight to get it back to see what is wrong.

My dishwasher won't drain. It is a Kenmore and about 8 yrs old

There is a panel tht separetes the top from the bottom you need to unscrew it. Place a pan under it after you see a little spout/drain hanging down that is probably fill with gunt what ever water that is in it will drain out clean it out , replace it after you've let the water run out. once you've screw it back see if your dishwasher is draining correctly.
