You must be using the wrong terminology as there is no diverted valve to a Pentair,purex, Pac_fab whisperflow as this a model of a pump. There a're diverted valves in a 3 way valve on the plumbing in front of the pump or in the skimmer to the pool and or spa. So feel free to email me back with further info and I'll be happy to walk you through it. Hightidepools@gmail

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


Your motor bearings are failing. It is most often caused by a leaking pump seal. It is a relatively inexpensive repair if it is caught early enough; before the shaft is damaged from the corrosive water eating into the steel.

Take it to a local electric motor repair shop for inspection. It will likely need a set of 203 bearings for the motor and a mechanical seal for the pump. All told, depending on the labor rates, it should be less than $75. You could try to repair this yourself however if you are not familiar with the process it is money well spent having someone who is do the repair for you.

Water pumps out instead of recirculating?


It's not your wires faulty.
Is the valve installed the right way.
When diverter valve is powered will pump water over bowl.
Your motor controller board may be faulty,
And need diverter driver parts replaced.
Set you machine to Traditional wash only to bypass
Eco active filling that users diverter valve.

I washed a rug and now the machine is not draining the water.


The drain pump has been block and it requires cleaning including the diverter valve. Disconnect power then lay the machine on its front on a cushioned surface to access the drain pump and the diverter valve at the bottom of the tub. Remove the inlet and outlet hoses of the drain pump and the diverter valve and clear any debris that is blocking the flow of water and preventing it from draining out. Check the impeller of the drain pump and make sure it is not blocked, restricted or damaged.

Also check the diverter valve for the same condition as the pump described above. The diverter valve is where the drain pump and the recirculation pump inlet hoses are attached from. Make sure it is in the drain position while the drain pump is working. Replace the drain pump and/or the diverter valve if deemed necessary.

I am getting service code 37, what does that mean and how can I fix it?


It's error code 37 and it means pump blocked error. Either the drain hose is clogged or kinked, the diverter valve has failed, or the pump itself is restricted or not working at all. Check to make sure that the drain hose is clear then disconnect power and lay the machine on its front on a cushioned surface to access the drain pump and the diverter valve. Remove the pump's inlet and outlet hoses then check and clear them from any debris that may prevent water from draining out. Check the impeller for any damage or restriction. Make sure the impeller is not frozen or blocked.

Check the diverter valve for the same condition as the pump described above. The diverter valve is where the drain pump and the recirculation pump inlet hoses are attached from. Make sure the diverter valve is in the drain position while the drain pump is working. Replace the drain pump and/or the diverter valve if deemed necessary.

The dishwasher isn't draining. The unit was replaced and it still doesn't drain. The tubing leading to the garbage disposal is clear. The air gap seems to be located outside. What do I do, outside of...


Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

What settings are best on the two (2), 3 way psv diverter valves on a hayward pool de filter system


First figure out how the valves work. In the filter mode the valves should be set so the pressure from the pump flows into the input of the filter and the output of the filter flows into the return line to the pool. In the backwash mode the pressure from the pump flows into the output of the filter and the input of the pump flows to the drain line. These are the two main modes.

Dishwasher won't drain


Hi! You have not mention about mfg and model No.
Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

Operation my Pentair 2" Pvc, 3 Way Lube Free Diverter


Every valve is unique to the system in which it is plumbed. You cannot specifically say that there is one way to turn a valve and then apply it to your situation. So, there is a way to determine what you need. Three way valves should be plumbed with the water flowing into the valve at what one would recognize as the "leg" of a letter "T".

Assuming the valve is plumbed this way, the source of flow to the other ports is either from the pool/spa or to the pool/spa. for a valve plumbed in front of a pump, the direction is from the pool/spa. For the other 3 way valve, it is to the pool/spa.

The easiest way to detemrine flow is point the valve handle to one direction. Keep in mind that water flow travels under the valve handle. So, if you see water flowing from your skimmer at the pool, the direction the valve handle is pointing is FROM the pool. The opposite port of the valve (180 degrees) is FROM the spa. Do the same for the other valve. If water flows to the spa with a jet action as opposed to a small trickle, you have directed flow TO the spa.

In general, both handles will be pointed in the same direction. At times, they may not so that is why you need to determine flow and then label thew ports.

It is not wise to run a system with the flow not set for POOL suction/POOL return or SPA suction/SPA return. Having the valves in opposite direction can result in an elevated spa draining to a level equal to the pool.
