If you live in an older house without a water softener, the probable cause is a mineral build up inside the pipes restricting flow. Your water heater may be suffering the same fate.

Keep getting a E4 Code

This E4 Phenomena means "no water":
No or slow water fill (not
reaching the full level in 15 min),
therby computer sends display message "E4"
1) The house water tap is not open, or
2) This is the most common E4 reason- The water inlet valve (that the hose is connected to) is blocked.
3) The water pressure is too low and the flow is too weak.
1) Open the water tap, then push the START/PAUSE button again.
2) Clean the water inlet valve. Shut off house water supply on the wall then, unscrew (lefty loosy) each hose from the house and the machine and look for a screen and clean the junk away from the screens. You may have 1 or 2 screens depending on the hose there may be 1 screen where the hose connects to the house and another screen inside the machine valve. Then, return hoses and turn on the water pressure again, Then push the START/PAUSE button again.
3) Wait for the normal water pressure to return to the house before use.

If your water pressure is good everywhere else in house, the refrigerator water valve is most likely causing your problem

How do i get a higher flow into my pool

The low flow could be caused by a clogged filter. If you have a sand filter and the pressure gauge is reading a high pressure then turn the control valve to Backwash the sand filter until the water is clear in the waste pipe (usually for 2 to 3 mins). then turn the control valve to Rinse for about 1 min then turn the control valve to Filter.

Removing cover from big blue 10 water filtering system

The best way to get it off is as follows.
1. Turn the incoming water off.
2. Open the closest cold water faucet and let it run until pressure is relieved.
3. Close the outlet of pre-filter housing.
4. Push the pressure relief button and hold it down until no more water comes out.
5. Use the filter housing wrench to unscrew housing.
6. If it is still hard to take off repeat steps 2-5.
7. Clean the housing and o-ring, lubricate the threads of housing and head with silicone lube or plumbers faucet lube. Lubricate the o-ring with same.
8. Replace filter
9. Only tighten the by hand NOT with wrench.
10. Turn water back on and hold pressure relief button to bleed off air.

The number one reason for filter housings being so hard to get off is people tightening the filter housing with a wrench when re-installing it.

My kenmore oasis he model 110.27086604 works until it gets to the rinse cycle which is at 17 min to be done, then it stops and shows a lf error, do you know what that means?

LF Error code: LF stands for long fill and occurs when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on.

All washers are designed to operate with a water supply pressure of 20-100 PSI. When the pressure drops below 20 PSI the washer can have the following problems:

* Slow Fill- low water pressure reduces the speed at which water flows into the machine.
o Verify the pressure at all other water sources in the house (i.e. sinks, showers, etc..). If you find other places where the pressure is low, the problem is not with the machine but with the water supply.
* Continuous Fill- The valve may not fully seat under 20 PSI which would allow for a constant flow even when the machine is not supposed to be filling.
o Contact the water company to verify the pressure being supplied to the house.
* dispenser- Needs a minimum amount of pressure to function. May dispense constantly, at the wrong time, or not at all.
o A plumber may need to be consulted if the pressure is found to be too low.

Things you can check :

* Are the Hot and Cold water faucets turned on
* Are the water hoses kinked
o Make sure all the hose are straight and able to flow water
* Are the screen inside the water valve plugged
o Inlet valve should be free of debris and rust.
o Turn off water and remove the inlet hoses from washer.
o Remove any accumulated film or particles.
o Assure rubber washers are in the end of each inlet hose.
o Reinstall hoses, turn on water and check for leaks.

Error codes can be caused by a Power Surge or other electrical anomaly,attempt to return the washer to operation by following the Hard Reset procedure below.

1. Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
2. Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
3. Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the display.
4. Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts

Had a LD error and successfully cleared clog in waste water tank. Turned it on and pump worked perfectly to pump out water. Started a new cycle to test everything and things went wrong. First, the tub...

If the water keeps filling with the unit unplugged you have a bad water valve(or low house pressure)
If the unit does stop filling when unplugged you have a plugged pressure hose to the pressure switch or a bad pressure switch. To access you peel back the front emblem to remove a screw in the center. This allows you to raise the top to check the pressure hose. You can also find the end of the hose at the control panel to blow through it, should be clear when tub is empty of water. A hole in the pressure hose would also cause flooding. This hose connects from the bottom of the outer tub to the pressure switch in the console to control the water level in the tub. Unit will not turn on drain pump if it does not sense water in the tub......
good luck......
