We added anti freeze into our water hold tank. There is a pink film on the bottom of the tank. How do we clean the film out of the tank?


problem is there is an RV for your system. you will need to do the following.
Drain all holding tanks, fresh water and sewage
  1. Attach garden hose to fresh water fill and fill tank.
  2. Turn on pump switch and open cold water side of all faucet/ shower fixtures. Leave open until water runs clear. Repeat for hot water side.
  3. Flush toilet until clear water runs into bowl.
  4. Dump tanks again.
  5. Sanitize water system. use a water sanitizer
  6. If a water filter is installed, drain lines, remove filter assembly, clean and reinstall with new filter.
  7. When ready to use the water heater, turn by-pass valve to open position to allow water to enter and fill the hot water heater tank.

LG washer not filling with water


I take it you mean you cleaned out mesh inserts in the entry side of the hot and cold water valves?
Inside the valves are rubber diaphragms which when they age, perish......a bit like you and me!

Provided voltage is being applied to the valves you will hear them "Buzz" when the time is for water to enter the machine. If they buzz but do not allow water entry, they need to be replaced.

FH IS FLASHING ON THE WASHER AND IT HAD STOPPED WORKING ONLY 5 MNUTES INTO ITS CYCLE


Hello,

The FH error code means the computer on the control board didnt detect any water entering the washer..sometimes it doesnt detect the water entering because the filter screens on the water inlet valve are clogged with sediment and water is having a hard time entering the washer.

The filter screens can be checked by turning off water at the faucets and disconnecting the fill hoses from the back of the machine and pop the scrrens out of where the hoses connect at the washer and check for blockage in them. If they are found to be clean check the water coming out of the hoses before connecting them back to the washer...if the screens are clean and water pressure is good out of the hoses the part of the washer called the FLOW METER would need to be replaced

Asko W6021 won't fill. It clicks and starts, but no water fills drum. I've cleaned drain trap but don't know how to clean inlet filter as suggested in manual.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
The water inlet filters are inside where the hot and cold water supply hoses screw into the machine. Turn the water off, unscrew the hoses and they should be visible. However it might not be those causing the machine not to fill. If they needed cleaning the water would fill- but taking longer each wash.
If you confirm the filters are clear, it is more likely to be symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, or the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

Water can't fill up


Check and clean out filter inside the connector to the washer

If that is clean
Switch the water off and then start the machine cycle , you should hear a buzzing sound from the area where the inlet hose connects to the washer

If there is no buzzing and the inlet filter is clean you need a new fill valve

Hot water will not enter machine. Screen filter is clean. Cold is OK.


There's no hot water Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally. If you're sure the machine isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests: Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on. Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct. Is there hot water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, completely replace it.

My kenmore 27 wide laundry center will not fill on rinse cycle! the water runs, but does not fill??????


If water is entering the tub on rinse and running out, the drain line is too low or siphoning the water out.
If it is not entering the machine the cold water inlet valve has trash in the screen and must be cleaned.
A test is choose COLD FILL and turn the machine on for regular wash. If no water enters,turn off the water supply and remove the hoses from the machine. Look inside the cold fill connection and clean the screen.

Slow Cold Water Fill


There is possibly a filter screen in the hoses as well as the water valve.Check the hoses for screens.Occasionally the water valve will deteriorate inside and must be replaced.
I am on a water well and have the same problem. This weekend I installed a inline filter purchased from Lowes. It has stopped the sand and silt problem. You will have to buy one extra water hose to do this yourself.

Kitchen Aid dishwasher is not cleaning like it use to


Check the following to address this issue further.


1. No water
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

5. Not enough soap
If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.

6. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner. There are a few out there.
