Sounds like either an alignment or a gasket issue. Is the water released from the tank by the same valve? If so, check whatever is in the machine that pushes against that valve. Maybe a part fell off or is jammed.

Why won't the hot water empty into the coffee pot?

Make sure your caraffe has its lid on , and check the bottom of the filter. it usually has a valve preventing coffee from leaking when you remove the caraffe. the lid pushes the valve back open when you place the caraffe back into the machine.

Washing won't spin and i have a washing machine full of water , could you tell me how to check the filter ?

First of all you mustt drain the water that is trapped within the drum. So remove the drain pump/ valve and allow the water to flow out - make sure that you have an arrangement to collect water when the drain Hose is removed.
Now the drain pump/valve must be checked clean if there is dirt clogging. Also test the valve for proper functioning. Also check the inlet valve and filter which is on line with the water inlet which can be traced easily. Check the motor, drive , door switch and finally the control board. If after switching on there is no action , inlet filling or spining when water is full, the program controller must be faulty.

Hi, I also have a SHS43E08GB/43 and need to replace the instantaneous water heater element. I can see that people have asked for some help with getting access to the unit. any chance of a 'heads up' on...

Replacing the Water Heater Element Step 1: Turn Off the Power
  • Turn the circuit breaker off at your electrical panel, and use a voltage tester to check if power is still reaching your water heater. You will be working with electricity and water, so it is critically important that the water heater is turned off and is no longer receiving electricity.
Step 2: Attach Hose to Drain Valve
  • Attach a hose to the drain valve and turn the knob to open the valve. At this point, we do not want to drain the tank, only to make sure that the drain valve is not clogged.
  • If your tank is clogged, you will need to address this issue first.
  • Do NOT drain your tank yet.
  • It is possible to change the heating element without draining your tank, although it can be a bit more challenging. If you would like to try, this video will show you how.
Step 3: Turn off Water to the Water Heater and Release Pressure
  • Turn OFF the water supply to the water heater, by closing the cold-water inlet valve which is located above the water heater.
  • Release the hot water pressure by allowing air into the tank. To do this, open a nearby faucet in a bathroom or kitchen. Only open the hot water valve, not the cold. Leave the valve open.
Step 4: Remove the Access Panel
  • Use a screw driver to remove the access panel. The upper panel houses the upper water heater element, and the lower panel houses the lower element.
  • There is usually insulation between the panel door and the thermostat, set the insulation aside in a dry place.
  • The thermostat should have a plastic cover, gently remove the cover.
  • Check the wires with a volt meter to ensure that there is no power.
  • Inspect the wiring. Has any of the wires been damaged? Are there any melted parts? Wiring can be damaged if sediment has caused an element to overheat. Any damaged wiring must be repaired.
  • Loosen the screws and disconnect the 2 element wires from the heating element.
Step 5: Remove Heating Element
  • Use a heating element wrench to remove the element. The element wrench can be purchased for about $5 at your local hardware store. It is designed specifically to remove electric water heater elements, and has a wide mouth that will fit over the exposed part of the element.
  • While the tank is still full of water, slightly loosen the element in a counter-clockwise motion. The water's weight will help keep the tank in place.
  • Once you know you can loosen the heating element, you can now drain the tank by opening the drain valve. Depending on the size of your tank it could take between 30 to 60 minutes to fully drain.
  • Remove the element. There will be a rubber gasket or "O" ring that seals the tank. Be sure you remove the O ring with the element.
Step 6: Install New Heating Element
  • Wipe down the threads and gasket area of the new element so that they are free of dirt or debris.
  • Attach the new O ring onto the new element. DO NOT use the old O ring.
  • Gently push the element into the tank and tighten with the element wrench.
  • Attach the 2 wires under the element screws. Be sure that the wires are secure and will not slip.
Step 7: Refill Tank
  • Close the water heater's drain valve.
  • Turn ON the water to the water heater.
  • Do NOT turn the power ON at this time. The tank must be full of water before turning on the power or you will damage the heating elements.
  • Check the newly installed water heater element for leakage. If leakage is present, turn off the cold water supply and tighten the element. It may be necessary to remove the element and reposition the O ring.
  • As the tank fills, water will begin to sputter from the open faucet tap that was left open from Step 3. The water is pushing the air out of the line. Once there is a steady flow of water, the faucet can be turned off.
  • Replace the plastic thermostat covers, insulation and access panel covers.
  • Once the water heater tank has filled with water, you can turn the power back ON to the water heater by flipping the circuit breaker ON.
?It's not uncommon for the hot water faucets throughout the house to sputter, as they will likely have air in the line. This will go away in a short period of time, you can open each faucet until you have a steady flow of water if you prefer.

I need to replace the drain valve at the bottom of the tank,can I buy a replacement valve? Are they all the same size?

There are 2 sizes; 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch. Remove the old one after draining the water heater and shutting off the water supply then take your old one to a plumbing supply outfit like George Morlan's. Make sure you wrap the new threads with teflon tape at least 3 wraps while holding the spigot in your left hand so the tape won't come off as you install the spigot. Good luck!!

Water is coming out of the drain valve shroud / drain valve. How can i stop this? Please help! Many thx!

Do you drain your heater regularly?

I think the water may have eaten or partially eaten the valve stem.

If I were faced with this problem, I believe I would secure the power, take a shower (to take advantage of the hot water you paid to heat - and to get cold water into the tank) Drain the tank - remove the stem replace the washer. If it looks strange ... like the washer screw was eaten, you can replace that valve.

Good luck with your project.

(PS you should clear sediment from the tank semi-annually or more)

I tried to drain my electric water heater. After about 30 or so gallons drained out of a 50 gallon tank, the drain clogged from the inside. Turning the cold supply back on didn't help, and now my water... name is can try to blow air into the drain valve to unclog the debris and see if it will drain..but if it has that much debris i think i would replace the hot water heater..also it has a sacrificial rod inside of it..and if it is melted away then the water will eat at your heaters liner and will eventually eat a hole in it...i hope this has helped

Draining the Priemer Plus Gas Hot Water Heater

Begin by turning off the gas at the tank and at the valve near the tank. CAUTION: Do not proceed any further if you do not know how to relight the gas pilot!
2) Turn off the COLD water supply to the tank.
3) Attach a garden hose to the drain valve at the bottom of the tank. Run the hose to a convenient drain location. Be careful if you use a real cheapy garden hose... some of these become very soft when hot water runs through them, and may leak! If you don't have a drain in the basement floor or suitable sump hole, you have my sympathies... this drain-down can take a while with a bucket! Oh... and be careful if you use a soft plastic bucket. It can also soften from the heated water so don't overfill it or burn yourself!
4) Open up the hot water side of any faucet. Open up the drain valve on the tank and allow it to empty. Miller time. That is, unless you don't have a sump...
NOTE: If the drain valve clogs, turn on the cold water supply to the tank to use water pressure to "blast" through the clog.
5) When the tank is empty, shut off the drain valve and turn on the cold water. This will loosen up more sediment in the tank through the churning action of the cold water in the tank. Let the tank fill partially and drain it again. In fact, if you find that the sediment starts to clog the drain valve, turn on the cold water supply to the tank, which will help loosen the sediment and blast it out.
If you have extreme amounts of sediment, you may have to repeat this procedure a few more times. Look at the drain water... if it is running clear, you are done. Shut off the drain valve, open the cold water supply and allow the tank to fill. Once water comes out of the hot water faucet, the tank is full and your task is done! Now, you can turn the electricity or gas back on to heat the water.
How frequently to clean the sediment from your tank...
This depends on the source and purity of your water supply. Some pros recommend doing it annually, some every few years. I would recommend doing a partial drain down annually if you find any sediment in the tank, otherwise every couple of years.
Remember that with an electric water heater, you must turn the power off! Even a partial drain down may expose the upper heating element to the air and permanently damage it!

Leaking tp valve

It is time for a New Water Heater.....But there are a few steps you can take to "TROUBLE SHOOT" the situation. There is a Drain Valve at the Bottom of the Water Heater. You may have a build up of the bottom of your water heater, if you have a floor drain in a basement or some way for the water to drain, than you can carefully loosen the drain at the bottom of the tank to FLUSH the tank.....The other option will still reqiure draining the tank and replacing the heating element.. My best Solution is to make sure the bottom of your Mobile home is Insulated Properly From the Wind and Elements. Even Bails of Hay stacked around your Foundation Can be VERY Effective.....MOSTLY THOUGH I THINK IF YOU DRAIN THE TANK AND REPLACE THE HEATING ELEMENT, your problem will be over, With proper Insulation under the Mobile. This has worked for me a few times..... Hope it helps.....Joe
