Pool over fills

I want to know how much incoming pressure the solenoid valves can hold back. I have 75 psi incoming pressure and the valve does not seem to hold at that pressure.

It depends on the actual valve. The valve that comes standard with the system is designed for typical municipal water pressures of around 35 to 40 psi.

It is easy to replace the valve for one with higher pressure ratings.

How to know the water pressure is wright for Samsung ice maker imc701


Used machine? If new seller needs to help. If under warranty check the MFG customer service number.
If used this may be the reason it was sold. If Used there is a possibility the water filter needs to be replaced. Yes they'[re expensive, but they can interfere with the process. Does the Cold water device work? Is there plenty of flow? If so it's not filter or pressure. If it barely comes out, then it's probably filter and may be the ice maker issue.

Fridge's water dispenser continues to run


Hello John;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Neither your ice maker or water dispenser work off your main control board.

There is only one reason that the ice maker will not fill and you water dispenser does not shut off immediately after the contact switch disengages.

Your problem is low water pressure. You have a bad water valve.
After time the water valve seals fail, metal form the water line or corrosion plugs the water supply valve. You need at least 60 PSI water pressure to shut off the water dispenser solenoid valve and at least 60 PSI to open the ice maker water valve and fight the long fill tubing resistance.


Check - Pull your unit out where you can get behind it. Turn power off to your unit. Turn the water valve off. With towels under the unit water connection and a large bucket ready, disconnect the water supply line. With the water valve shut off you will probably get a steady stream of low water flow. The valve is bad. If not, open the water valve with the water line in the bucket. Is the water flow 60 PSI? Probably not.

Use a hair dryer to completely dry the solenoid valve and electrical area before you plug your unit back in

You need to replace the valve.

Before you do the above. Just in case you move your unit check for a bend or closure in the water line.

Washer error on rinse cycle


E11 means the Fill time is too long. There are a whole bunch of tests to perform - but the easiest is to replace the hoses going into the machine - I had the same problem and tested my hoses - they looked fine - but my machine would do this every so often - turns out my hoses had "check valves" that were a safety design to prevent freeflowing incase one burst.....well the valve was going bad. Replaced both hoses - never had a problem again. But anyways... here are the other tests...

1. Is the incoming water flow normal?
Yes. Go to step (4). No. Go to step (2)
2. Are the incoming water faucets turned completely on?
No. Turn water faucets on. Yes. Go to step (3).
3. Is the incoming water pressure above (30) psi.
No. Have customer correct pressure problem.
Yes. Check for kinked or blocked incoming water hoses, clean
the incoming water screens. If problem still remains, replace the
water inlet valve assembly.
4. Does the fill water continue enter the washer?
Yes. Go to step (5). No. Go to step (6)

5. Remove power from the washer. Did the water fill
stop?
Yes. Go to step (6) No. Replace the inlet valve assembly.

6. Good models, check the pressure switch.
Pressure switch checks good. Go to step (8).
Pressure switch checks bad. Replace pressure switch.

7. Better models, replace the pressure sensor.
If this did not correct the problem, go to step 8.

8. Replace the control board.
Good Luck!!!

GOOD LUCK!!!!

Fills arbitrarily not holding any water after a full cycle. All seems well and on any given day it will have filled without warning and floods floor


Check your drain hose to where it connects under the sink. If it is connected to the garbage disposer, and not looped upwards before it runs back to the dishwasher, it may just be drain water from the sink running back to the dishwasher. Even if it hooks up to a "t" spout under the sink, and the drains run a little slow, water can still run back to the dishwasher. The ideal set up is to have it connect to the drainage, run up behind the bowls of the sink, and then back to the dishwasher.
If this is not the answer, then you may have a defective fill valve that is allowing water to seep into the machine (very unusual in dishwashers). Also note that water valves require 23 psi of pressure to seat closed and if the incoming pressure is less than that, even a new valve may have the same issue.
Good luck and let me know how you make out, and if you have any other questions.

How to open pool, fill sand filter with water?


I happen to have a copy of the users manual for this pool filter. These are the instructions for operating your filter.

1. Be sure correct amount of filter sand media is in tank and
that all connections have been made and are secure.
2. Depress Vari-Flo control valve handle and rotate to
BACKWASH* position. (To prevent damage to control valve
seal, always depress handle before turning.)
3. Prime and start pump according to pump instructions (be
sure all suction and return lines are open), allowing the filter
tank to fill with water.
WARNING: ALL SUCTION AND
DISCHARGE VALVES MUST BE OPEN WHEN
STARTING THE SYSTEM. FAILURE TO DO
SO COULD CAUSE SEVERE PERSONAL
INJURY.
Once water flow is steady out the waste line, run the pump for
at least 2 minutes. The initial back-washing of the filter is
recommended to remove any impurities or fine sand particles
in the sand media.
4. Turn pump off and set valve to RINSE position. Start pump
and operate until water in sight glass is clear—about 1/2 to 1
minute. Turn pump off, set valve to FILTER position and
restart pump. Your filter is now operating in the normal filter
mode, filtering particles from the pool water.
5. Adjust pool suction and return valves to achieve desired
flow. Check system and filter for water leaks and tighten
connections, bolts, nuts, as required.
6. Note the initial pressure gauge reading when the filter is
clean. (It will vary from pool to pool depending upon the
pump and general piping system). As the filter removes dirt
and impurities from the pool water, the accumulation in the
filter will cause the pressure to rise and flow to diminish.
When the pressure gauge reading is 8-10 PSI (0.55-0.69
BAR) higher than the initial "clean" pressure you noted, it is
time to backwash (clean) the filter (see BACKWASH under
Filter Control Valve Functions.)

I installed a new pentair de filter and new multiport valve. at start up the filter pressure reads 40 psi. after multiple backwashes and rinses the pressure goes down to about 15 psi but slowly climbes...


If the pressure is 15 psi on recirculate, and high on filter, the problem is the filter itself, or the valve plumbing. The DE filters are unusal in the fact that they are plumbed like a sand filter, NOT the cartridge filter. If you could give details as to which filter AND multiport valve you have (look on sticker for model number on valve) it would help to figure out if the problem is in the filter or valve.

Fill valve vibrates loudly


i would look to the valve solenoid as the issue, if not the pressure from the incoming water supply( try decreasing under sink perhaps to high)

Noise


Eileen, If the screeching is only happening on the fill and not during agitation or spin, I think we are safe to rule out the belt, pulley and bearing. Remove the fill hoses from the back of the washer and check to see if you have sand or gunk caught in the screens of the valve itself. If they are clear sounds like the water passing through the valve is making the noise. Another thing to check is the water pressure in the house. It should be around 55 psi., 75 psi max. I have seen it as high as 120psi with a bad regulator. This will cause noise and all kinds of problems. The part number for the fill valve is 131389300, according to the model posted....Catriver...post back.
