...remove the rear panel of a hoover top loader to locate a leak?

Removed screws...obviously...but where the inlet hoses attach it seems as they are on the outside of the panel and stop the panel from coming away from the machine.

SOURCE: tRICITY BENDIX AW1000W INLET HOSE LEAKING

There should be a rubber washer fitted in the end of the hose.
If after fitting one it still leaks, then you will have to replace the hose, as it means that the metal clamp on the end of the hose is loose, and is not repairable.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

What does FA mean on the machine


Hello. You didn't state the model number of the washer so my help is limited. The FA error code on some washers indicates the flood sensor has been tripped. (Check for a water leak asap) There is a sensor, usually located at the bottom, rear, that trips if water comes into contact with it.(shorts across the terminals) and causes an immediate shut-down of the washer. I'm assuming this is a front-loading unit. Depending on the model, you will have to either remove the service panel from the middle of the rear panel or, remove the entire metal rear cover of the washer--about 20 screws more or less, the top 3 and middle 2 will be machine thread and not sheet metal screws(have a much coarser thread).
Check for water residue trails( to help you locate the source of the leak. Don't rule out a leak coming from one or more of the inlet water valves located at the top, rear of the washer underneath the top cover. Shut off the water at the wall first, and then do what *I* do--start from the top and work my way down. If the valves *are* leaking, there usually will be rust and moisture around the magnet coils of the suspect valve(s). (i.e. LG washers are notorious for leaking inlet water valves and I keep several sets on the svc van). Also, carefully check out the electric drain pump for a cracked casing or loose hose clamps--I hate those spring clamps--replace them with automobile hose clamps if you can(the kind that you use a screwdriver to tighten). If the valves aren't leaking, CAREFULLY check any and all hoses coming from the dispenser holder on a front-loader and the lines leading to the different dispensers on a top loader. I hope I helped you!

F20 Error Code


This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model FRONT LOADERS displaying the “F20” error code.

"F20" is a No Water Detect error. It is an indication that you either have no water coming into the washer, or very little water at all. If the pressure switch has not tripped after 6 minutes, the error code is displayed. This can be a potential problem with the following:


If you have NO water in the wash tub, check the following:

- Inlet water valve may be clogged. Clean inlet screens if necessary.
- Make sure water taps are on.
- Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.

If you HAVE water filling the wash tub, check the following:

- Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem. Click the following link for instructions:



http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

- Verify Drain Pump operation.
- Verify the Pressure Switch hoses are intact and connected properly.

- Verify wire harness connections at the pressure switch, inlet valves, drain pump and Central Control Unit (CCU).

To access the Drain Pump - UNPLUG the washer and take the lower panel under the door off by removing the three screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Propping the front feet of the washer up can make access much easier. I use a couple small blocks of wood. With the screws removed, the panel should drop down then come off. If it sticks, tap either side and it should come free. The pump is located directly under the wash tub in the front of the washer. Verify the electrical connections are good and that the pump is running. Click on the following link to check the pump for obstructions:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r385845-checking_drain_pump_in_whirlpool_duet

To access the Pressure Switch – remove the three screws in the top panel along the back of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel should slide back, then, lift off. The pressure switch is located on the right-hand side of the washer in the rear. It is a round plastic device with electrical connections and a plastic air hose attached. Verify the electrical connections are intact, and the air hose is attached and not cracked or leaking.


To access the Central Control Unit (CCU) – with the top panel of the washer removed, the CCU is located directly behind, and just above the rear of the wash tub. There should be a tech sheet directly behind the lower panel or attached to one of the interior cabinet walls. Please refer to this sheet to learn how to perform diagnostics and to verify the wire connections at the CCU. In addition, the tech sheet will also assist in how to locate the components mentioned, and the specific measurements required determining if the components are good or bad.

I hope this information is found to be helpful.

Im trying to replace the fill valve on a Kenmore washer model # 110.28812790 serial # CG4186264. I am having trouble getting the back off to get to the valve. Do you know how to do this? Thanks


I just replaced the fill valve on my front load Kenmore Elite HE4T it is actually a very easy fix.
1. Turn off the hot/cold water supply to the washer. 2. Remove the top cover of the washer by removing the three screws located at the top of the back panel. 3. Lift up the rear of the top cover about 1" and pull toward the rear of the washer. The top cover should pop off. 4. Remove the water supply hoses if they are not marked "H" and "C" mark them so that when you reconnect they are not reversed. 5. On the back - left side of the inlet valve is a spring clamp holding the black water supply hose to the inlet valve. Using a pair of pliers loosen and slide the clamp an inch away from the hose end. 6. Using your fingers and a flat tip screwdriver pry the inlet hose off of the inlet valve. 7. Place the new valve near the defective valve and remove the wires attached to the "H" and "C" inlet relays (they are two square blocks with two wire terminals on each). As you remove each wire attach it to the corresponding terminal on the replacement valve. I found it was best to pry off the plastic connectors with a screwdriver from the top while pulling them off. 8. There is one screw holding the valve to the back panel of the washer, remove it and remove the defective valve. 9. Attach the water black water supply hose to the new valve and slide the spring clamp back over the nipple of the inlet valve making sure it is near the end of the hose, but not over the edge. 10. Install the new valve by lining up the single screw hole and reinstalling the screw. 11. Reconnect the "H" and "C" supply hose paying attention that the "H" is connected to the inside and the "C" is connected to the outside inlet. 12. Turn on the water supply and run the washer through a fill cycle checking for leaks at the supply hose connections and the black hose at the outlet of the fill valve. 13. If everything is still dry reinstall the top cover by putting it in place and sliding it forward. Replace the three screws that hold the top panel.
The entire repair should take you less than 30 minutes. If you have enough room between the back of the washer and the wall you really don't even need to move the washer.
