In the washer it could be under the agitator if it is a top loader, if it is a front loader there is really no place for it to go but check the rubber seal around the door. In the dryer it should be in the tumbler or possibly in the lint filter but unless the lint screen is broken or you ran it without one it should not be able to go out into the venting piping etc
Robert, i'm sorry to say but the AAV's are machined parts and the seal should not have been broken by removing the cap. The floats are set perfectly and you would have been easier replacing the whole vent. You could have isolated all the pipes under the boiler and just drained the boiler down by releasing any pressure by the pressure release valve. You may need to buy another AAV and start again.
Just cap the open hot connection. When the valve is set to any intermediate position between hot and cold water will flow from the hot side to the cold side if there is any pressure difference. In your case the difference is your water pressure. You did nothing wrong you just did not finish the install.
Turn off your incoming cold water to the tankless. (you should probably do the same with your hot water out line just in case). find the black cap that screws sideways into the cold water connection on the bottom of the unit. unscrew the black cap. the filter is supposed to be attached but it almost always comes off. grab a screw driver and stick it in the hole that the black cap was covering. angle it and drag the filter out. you may end up putting a hole in the filter this way but it doesn't matter if you are replacing the filter anyways. once you pull it out make sure you have a little rubber washer on the new filter or else transfer from the old one. the new filter should actually attach itself nicely onto the black cap so once you've removed the old one all you have to do is screw the black cap/filter combo piece back onto the cold water connection and you're done.
I suppose I should mention you will want to have a bucket under the pipes and everything because your unit will empty all the water that was in the unit out of that hole.
Did you ever figure this out? Mine agitates but instead doesn't start spinning and draining unless I open the lid. It then "clicks" and starts but it is strange that I have to do this to get it to spin.
Alan, you're exactly correct. If memory serves me it's one of the smaller ones and is located closer to the center than the outer regions. So pop off the covers one at a time and poke around under it with a small screwdriver or scribe or some such thing. You should be able to identify it by it's shape. I believe it's a 13/16th's size of a socket to remove it. Personally, I don't usually replace them unless the customer insists. I think they're a waste of money and can eventually cause very bad odors in the hot water.
could be faulty thermostat/reset button, or shorted element.
Breaker to water heater off,
Check elements for continuity to ground. should be no continuity to ground.
If elements OK replace reset button.
If you have noticed very hot water and elements checked OK then replace both thermostats along with reset button
