How to repair or fix a Dishwasher if it doesn't drain


Dishwasher Doesn’t Drain Following a cycle, a small pool of clean water inside the tub is normal. An excessive amount of water means the pump isn’t pumping water out properly, the drain hose isn’t carrying it to the drain pipe, or the house’s drain lines are backed up.
If dirty water spews from the air gap, the drain line is kinked or clogged. (If you’ve recently installed a garbage disposer, be sure the knockout plug for the dishwasher was removed when the connection was made; see your disposer instructions.)
1) Remove the cover from the air gap at the top of the sink (usually a short chrome domed cylinder that sits at the back of the sink), and, using a stiff wire, clean it out. Also check the entire length of the drain hose for kinks or blockages, especially at the drain connection to the disposer or drain line.
2) Once the dishwasher is cool, shut off the power to it, and—if your dishwasher is made to allow this—remove the strainer, located under the bottom spray arm at the base of the cabinet (see illustration). Unscrew the hubcap, lift the spray arm off, and remove any clips that hold the strainer to get it out. Scrub it clean with a brush, then replace it.
3) Determine whether the sink trap or house drain line is clogged.
4) If the dishwasher still doesn’t drain properly, the drain hose may be clogged or the drain valve may need replacement. You can check the drain hose for obstructions, but this sometimes involves pulling the dishwasher out from under your counter to access the hose, disconnecting the hose at both ends, and flushing it out with a faucet or garden hose or replacing it with a new hose.

My kreepy krauly wont clean the deep end of the swimming pool.


Your situation is unusual in that most of the time these will stay in the deep end and not get to the shallow end. Make sure that your hose is the proper length and the hose weights are in the right positions

Up to 4 feet water, 1 weight at one foot away from Kreepy
4-7 feet water, add a second weight at 6 feet from Kreepy
7-12 feet water add a third weight at 10 feet from Kreepy.

It can take some trial and error to get the Kreepy to cover the whole pool. This includes adding or removing hose sections, and adjusting the pool return "eyeballs" to different directions.

Add the appropriate amount of shock treatment to the pool water, as prescribed on the packaging.
Add the appropriate amount of algecide to the pool water, as prescribed on the packaging.
Run your filter for the appropriate time to circulate all water once.

Install your floating Dispenser and winterizing tablets.

Step Two - Vacuum & Water Level
Vacuum your pool while setting your filter to the "back wash" or "waste" setting.
(this will help lower your water level)
After vacuuming, install the sump pump and drain pool to about 6 inches below your thru-the-wall skimmer.

How do you remove the top cover housing on the Letro Legend pool cleaner? The housing is gray.


Remove the bag, remove the head float, remove the screw that adjust the water pressure to the tail hose, remove the tail hose.
turn unit upside down, you will see two screws near the center of the bottom. That will allow you to remove the bottom portion first. Once the bottom cover has been removed there are two screws near the center once again, that hold the top portion. You will see more than two screws, but all the other screws have a washer underneath them. And there will be more than two. The two screws that you need to remove, are the only ones that look different from the others, and there are only two of them.

My kreepy keeps coiling at the deep end of pool and stays there what do i need to do so that it cleans the whole pool?


There are a couple of things that you can try to get your pool cleaner to cover both ends of the pool. First, use an eyeball diverter to make sure that your water flow is correct to make the pool cleaner function in the proper pattern. Your return lines could be pushing the cleaner only toward your deep end. Secondly, if your hose is connected to your filter at the deep end of the pool, it could be that your hose is not long enough to cover the entire pool. You might need to add hose lengths. You will also want to adjust your hose weights.

G4 keeps heading for and climbing the sides of the pool, always making a long run along the side walls of the pool. The bottom is not being cleaned. Have adequate lenght of hose. Diaphram has no holes....


If these pool cleaners are staying on the edge on the pool, there are two things that you can do to correct the problem. First, reduce the flow through the cleaner to the low side of the ideal range. Second, add a hose weight about 3 feet from the cleaner's head. That should correct the issue.

Baracuda G4 won't clean whole pool. goes to a corner and stays


Maybe your hose needs to be reprogrammed by unhooking and lying it in the sun for several hours.
