ARE U SURE U MEAN THE WATER PUMP? ITS NOT SUPPOSE TO DO ANYTHING TILL WATER IS IN THE TUB? OR DO U MEAN ITS POURING WATER IN TO MUCH? IS IT PUTTING WATER IN THEN DRAINING RIGHT AWAY?

Washer fills with water then drains:

The critical question is. Is the water is just running down the drain but the pump isn't running. If it is being pumped out, and you can hear the pump running just the same as when it's emptying prior to spin then it could be aborting the wash because it is, or it thinks it's overheating. ( due to defective water temperature switch)

If the pump is failing to shut off then there is something wrong with the electronics. If your washer is a mechanical timer controlled device then you may have a sticking switch (which may explain if switching cycles does something for you). But if you have an electronic timer then you may be experiencing a board failure, where a cycle is being commanded when it is not intended to by design.


If water isn't being pumped out, but just draining away all the time, the washer will keep detecting there isn't enough water inside and top up with more.
Modern washing machines should be sophisticated enough to realize something's wrong and abort with an error, but if not, it may continue washing or rinsing for a short while before losing enough water to trigger more coming in again. It can get stuck on this cycle indefinitely and it's called siphoning.
Siphoning occurs when the end of the drain hose is lower than the level of the water inside the washing machine.
Try raising the hose and see what happens.
Also the drain hose should have some type of air gap where it fits into the stand pipe. It should not have an air tight fit.

Again Either it's siphoning down the drain due to an issue with the plumbing, it's overfilling, or also if it ( THE WATER) overheats then in some machines the software will employ a fill and drain tactic to cool down the water. The important thing is to work out which of these different faults is causing the problem by careful observation.


Other switch's to check would be the water inlet valve and the water pressure switch with a multi meter for continuity or OHMS.

Dishwaster not working


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

REMOVE panel and check for moisture or loose joints in the connectors. If so dry using a heater. Check also the door switch. Other wise the panel is to be replaced.

I have just bought the yardworks 2 zone water timer from Canadian Tire and there are no instructions anywhere. I have managed to get it to work for one minute and I have it set to do the same in one hour...


Delayed Watering
You can delay the first watering cycle of each watering zone by up to 12 hours by using the small button at the bottom middle of each zone area. Press the delay button 1 time for each hour you wish to delay the first start time. The "Low Battery" light will illuminate when you press the button. The maximum delay is 12 hours.
For example, if you are programming at 4:00 in the afternoon and you want your timer to water every 12 hours, but you want the first watering of the day to start at 6:00 a.m., press the Delay button two times. Without the delay, the first cycle would have occurred 12 hours after the timer is programmed (4:00 a.m.). The delay feature changes that to 6:00 a.m. The timer will then water every 12 hours after that.

Candy dishwasher 2 program lights keep flashing after program starts then stopas and flashing starts


My candy dishwasher Model No CDI 3015-S retains water in the bottom of the machine at the end of the program. I have checked the filter which is clear so do not know what else to do to clear the problem. Anyone faced this problem or know what might be the cause?

E1 error code on my kenwood dishwasher [kwd243a


Hi
The E1error code indicates a water inlet error.
To access test mode: press and hold Normal+Eco, and press Power. Release buttons. Then press Start(display n:01).Press Start again (display shows water level frequency-not important). Press Start again-(display n:03-motor will be running). Press Start again (display n:04-drain pump will run). Press Start again (display n:05-inlet valve will come on and machine should fill with water). You have now tested major components are working-if you keep pressing start you will scroll thru and test other functions, like heater, dispensor etc, but not needed for your fault.
If Machine didn't fill with water in test mode, you probably have a faulty inlet valve (test resistence should be approx 3.7-4 k ohm).
If inlet valve has tested OK ie machine filled with water in test mode then:
Disconnect from power.
Remove side panels (need to remove top, and bottom front panel to then be able to remove sides)
- Check no water in base of machine-water in base will indicate machine has leaked and activated the safety device which shuts off inlet valve.
- If OK, you probably have a faulty flow meter(measures water intake). Located left hand side of machine, large plastic compartment, which has a sensor at the bottom with 3 wires (red,white,black) that go up to control board. Replace entire flow meter assy-relatively inexpensive part.
- If you still have problem, then control board is faulty, it is much more likely to be flow meter .

Water won't drain


To determine if your pump works, before attempting access from the bottom of the top drawer or from the bottom of lower drawer: You can manually pump the water out by doing the following:
1- Press the Power button to turn off the display.
2- Press the Lock button and then the start button the same tim. Hold them until the display showing up.
3- If the display is not clear with all the characters, press power button to see clear the display.
4- The first display is bL, then Er,Ld..dd, FU, P1, P2...by pressing the Start button to go by the sequence until P2 (drain). If you miss, be patient to continue press and release the start button to get back to P2.
5 When is is at P2, press Lock button to tun on the drain. When you hear the water flowing to the drain, you could pull the top drain to see how the water is draining.
6- When the water is out, press the lock button again to stop it.
7-When it is done, press the Power button to get out of manual mode.

If this is working, then your water is there because you are running the bottom and your air gap allow back flow to the top drawer and or you are running the top and your air gap allows a back flow to the bottom drawer.
Please let me know if this is not the case.

Dishwasher not working


Hi Frazzledmum, Miele have a safety float switch in the bottom of the machine. (The float is a polystyrene disc). If the machine leaks for any reason, then the water sits in the bottom tray raises the float switch & all your dishwasher will do is activate the drain pump and flash those red lights at you. The reason is that somewhere under the machine there is a leak that needs to be investigated & repaired so in this instance I'm affraid that you will have to call a serviceman. Kind regards

Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB1050REC1 - Washing Indicator Light Blinking


Here is what happened, you pulled the door open without pressing cancel and allowing it to pump the water out, hence the "flooding in the bottom". This is just one reason why it maybe blinking, there is a water sensor in the bottom. If your dishwasher is hooked up properly to any decent garbage disposal, run the disposal for about 30 seconds to a minute. This should pump the water out, more like activate a light siphoning affect. It should work as normal. If you are not having luck with that, detach the DW drain get it low and let it siphon.
