My lfxs246238 fridge will not dispense ice nor water help

Most times this is caused by a plugged up water valve at the waterline connection point. Much of the time you will find the pierce is on the bottom of the pipe- right where the dirt settles, and plugs the valve. If this is the case, close and abandon it. Install a new drilled hole type on the SIDE or TOP of the pipe.

What to do when there no psi on cyl 4 to get the psi up agan"?"

There are at least three possible reasons for no psi in cyl No 4.
1. Burnt or damaged exhaust valve in that cylinder
FIX Remove head and replace faulty valve
2. Blown head gasket (water mixed with sump oil shows milky on dipstick and steam or water coming out of exhaust tailpipe, radiator water disappears )
FIX Remove head, grind flat and assemble with new gasket.
3. Broken piston rings, or cracked piston or burnt hole in piston.
FIX replace faulty parts.
Squirt some sump oil ( 2 or 3 spoonfuls ) through spark plug hole,
spin motor , and if compression PSI improves then it is rings or piston, if no PSI then it is faulty ex valve !!!

Gear oil change. how much oil

Each gear case has two plugs - an upper, and lower. Take both plugs out and fill from the bottom till lube starts to come out the top plug. Do not fill from the top plug as an air bubble may prevent the case from getting filled completely. Gear lube is usually sold in a squeeze bottle or there's pumps available. If it takes more than one bottle, simply switch bottles, or put your finger over the hole till you get the lower plug back in. In colder climates it's best to change the lube each fall. Inspect the drained lube (old lube) for water. Water will either settle to the bottom and come out first or the lube will have a yellowish color. If there's water present - have the seals checked/replaced before refilling. Sometimes it's simply replacing the seal around the plugs. Do not let water in the lower unit freeze, as it can crack the Aluminum casing. Smaller engines might take a pint, and larger take a quart - but have extra on hand and make sure it comes out the top hole. Also check for drip spots on the floor if stored.

You can try some sort of epoxy to seal the crack, but I myself haven't had much luck patching these pool filters. It is worth a shot if you want to save money, but don't expect great results. If you do attempt it, try a quick drying, waterproof epoxy sealant.

I cannot get one of the filter valves closed

Water should not be draining from your pool filter at all. There should be one hose that connects to from the filter to the pool and another hose that returns the filtered water from the filter to the pool. It is a continuous loop. If water is coming out of your pool during this process, either you don't have a hose connected properly or the hose is leaking/cracked.

Water leaking during drain and spin


You Need to check the following--

The fill hoses : These are located behind the washer and are connected to the water mixing valve and faucets. Pin holes and cracks on the hoses may cause them to leak.

The water valve: The water mixing valve is located behind the washer. The fill hoses connect to the water mixing valve. Inside of the valve is that the water gets directed to the filling spout. Water leaks happens when the valve develop pin holes or cracks. Bad fill hoses or water valve could be the reason why the washer is leaking water.

The Filling spout: Is just a directing part, this part directs the water from the water valve to the tank. Pin holes and cracks is what make this part to leak.

The tank : The major cause for the tank to leak is through holes or cracks that the tank develops because of vibration or metal items hitting the tank during the spin cycle.

The tub seal : The tub seal is made of rubber, it is connected between the transmission post and the center of the tank. Leaks developed when the seal gets worn out and it looses the ability to make a good seal between the transmission and the tank. A crack tank or worn out tub seal could be the reason why the washer is leaking water.

The overflow tube : This tube is use to direct the water away from any electrical parts like the motor in case of an overflow cause by a bad water mixing valve or bad water level switch.

The pump : The pump job is to remove the water from the tank to the drain pipe. This pump has an electric motor and an impeller. When the pump motor is turning, any water that falls in to the impeller, is push out to the drain pipe.

Most leaks are cause by a worn out seal between the front pump housing and the rear one.

The drain hose : The drain hose is made of hard plastic and some times it develops pin holes and cracks leaks. Bad pump or drain hose could be the reason why the washer is leaking water.
