The cause is the bleach softened the rubber seats enough to make them sticky. The seats are dissolving. disassemble the pump face plate, 4 screws and remove the cartridges top & bottom. Be careful the face plate is very fragile. use a pick to get down to the ceramic ball pick out the seat and either turn it over (first time) or replace it with the viton type that are chlorine resistant. You have 4 seats in the system 1 in the foot valve, 1 in the injection fitting and 2 in the pump.

How to fix air conditioner causing a lot of Water pools

Air conditioners and high-efficiency combustion furnaces create significant condensation, which exits through a plastic drain tube. This should go into a floor drain or be carried away by a small “condensate pump.” If water is pooling at the base of the appliance, something may be blocking the water's flow, or leaking, or the pump may not be working.
1) Look to see if one of the tubes is leaking. If it is, replace it.
2) Test the condensate pump by pouring water into its pan. If the pump doesn't start, either it isn't receiving power or it is broken. Be sure that it's plugged in and test the circuit. If it's broken, either get it repaired or replace it.
3) If the pump runs but doesn't empty the pan, the ball-like check valve just before the discharge tube is probably stuck. Unscrew the check valve, loosen the ball inside, and look for an obstruction. If it appears that a condensation drain tube is clogged with algae, remove it if possible (you may have to cut it and replace it later with a coupling). Run a wire through it to clear it. To kill the algae, pour a dilute solution of bleach (1 part bleach to 16 parts water) through the pipe.
4) Ice may be blocking the tube. If this is the case, be sure the filter isn't dirty. If the filter appears to be fine, the air conditioner's refrigerant supply is probably low. This is when it's time to call an air-conditioning technician.

00linc ls v8 240k miles little Skip off and on at times loosing water can't locate leek . could it be a head gasket going bad oil look OK not milky looking

Leaks are most common at hose connections, within the heater core, the radiator, or at the water pump. The water pump has a drain hole under the shaft that allows water to leak out when the bearing is getting bad. This is supposed to tell you to replace the pump. Unfortunately, many drivers fail to regularly inspect the engine compartment, and even when they do, often the coolant evaporated on the engine block leaving little or no residue to allow for detection. Seepage at hose connections can have the same results. The heater core leaking often runs out the firewall with the condensate from the A/C unit, so it is often missed. If you have no milky oil, then the head gasket isn't blown into the oil gallery. But you can have a head gasket blow directly into the cylinder(s) themselves. This will cause a white smoke from the tailpipe when running. Do not confuse this with the white smoke that comes with a early morning startup. This smoke is due to moisture that builds up in the muffler and is normal, but will stop after a few minutes. If the engine produces white smoke during normal driving under acceleration, then have it checked. You may be able to detect a slight smell of antifreeze from the tailpipe in this condition.

How to get my siphon hose connection to work?


First of all the siphon hose to suck you need to create a low pressure for the venturi to work, this is achived by changing the nozzle on the end of your lance to the "soap" nozzle it should be the black nozzle in your case, or the one with the biggest hole.
With this in it should suck thru the clear chem tube, if not there is a little ball bearing and spring under the brass barb that the clear tube pushes onto that may be gunked up, if so it will not allow the chem to pass it. you will need to remove the ball and spring and clean it up with some steel wool and reassemble (Take note of how it comes apart) and you should be back in business.

Hope this helps.

Washer Feels like there are gallons of water in the bottom

Hello Holly Davis -

Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if water pumps out. If it does not, then the unit could possibly be experiencing an issue with a faulty pump, timer, door lock assembly or control board. Contact a professional to move forward accurately. However, regarding the odor my advice to you is first rub some bleach around the door gasket. Let this dry. Next rub some vinegar around the door gasket. Let this dry. (Do NOT mix the bleach and vinegar) Then run a hot empty load of bleach in all three dispensers. Put 1/2 cup of bleach in the detergent dispenser and fill the softener and bleach dispenser to the max fill line with bleach. Once that is done repeat the process with vinegar. Please make sure you run a load of towels or some sort of items that will not matter if you get a little bleach on them once this process is done.

How do i adjust flushing on a tolit i replaced the pump now it wont flush properly

There should be a floating ball (usually black) attached to an arm, when the ball rises with the water it shuts off the flow. There should be a chain attached to the ball that is adjustable, letting the chain out allows more water in the tank, shortening it allows less water in the tank.

If the little balls were perfectly round and steel, then they are balls from a ball bearing. Things are not going to run right until you find the bearing and replace it.

How do i remove black mold on gasket

Try using bleach with hot water, run a cycle with hot water and bleach. Or spray bleach +water mixture on the seal. Run a cleaning cycle with hot water and bleach or vinegar at least once a month to reduce the growth of mold in other parts of the washer. You can also try using 1/2 a cup of Washing Soda or 4 cups of baking soda Crystals and run the machine with no clothes in it. This would remove all the debris, lint & mold growth from the drain pump and drain filter. This would clean the mold from the door seal as well.
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
