Check and see if you have 120 comming to the fill valve. if you do the start to loosen the hose you connected to make sure the valve actually opened when you turned the water back on

SOURCE: Water from LG 30 pt dehumidifier drains into

(assumming you are not an idiot, like the other solver suggested) you may very well have it connected to the right spot, many of these units, are not balanced well, (or are balnaced all to well, depending on how you look at it) The imbalance, basically makes the water drip to the front, instead of the back. Try to put something under just the front of the machine, to tilt it back, ever so slightly. Good luck

SOURCE: Have a comercial ice machine ,dont know how to hook up!

You gonna have a drain for the reservoir to clean the unit and a drain for the ice bin and then a connection for inlet water. The water valve is the key. Look for it.

My GE washer started leaking like 2months ago underneath. A puddle of water starts to form during the spin cycle. Can u please help me!! Charlie

I fix these things, and what I would do is take this machine outside and put it up on some sort of pedestal and hook it up to run.
I traditionally use a garden hose hooked to the cold water hose, and remember, the drain hose must be as high as the back of the machine to allow the tank to fill.
Take a strong flashlight and you should see that cause of the leak.
I hope it is only a hose, and that no hole has rusted in your machine.
God bless your efforts.

When my Kenmore machine is running on the wash cycle warm/warm no water is coming at all. I could run the machine only with cold water even on the cycle warm/cold.

Most likely the hot water hose is plugged up, or least likely, the hot/cold valve is broken or plugged up.
Find a large container, or better yet, hook up a garden hose that you might try the faucet where the hot water is hooked up and see if water will come out of it when the washer hose is not hooked up there.
If it will not, you have a plugged up hot water pipe or the water heater shut off valve is closed.
If you get good water pressure and hot water from the faucet, look at the filter screens that are inside the ends of the hot water hose and see if any are plugged up.
There may be several.
If not, perhaps the inlet water solenoid has failed. That plastic part is where the hoses attach to the washer itself.
God bless your efforts.

What is the A:09 code

Code A09 means there is a problem with the water supply. Ensure your water is turned on completely, unplug the machine for 1 minute and then plug it back in. If the code persists, you should turn off the water and remove the supply lines. There is usually a filter in one end of each hose or at the water valve hookup. Ensure that the filter is clean and replace it. If you have done this and you know that you have good water flow through the supply hoses, I would suspect the water valve solenoid(s) as being defective.

Engine working fine, but water not coming out

Couple of things, is the water supply good? if that's a yes, then check to see if there is a way to engage / disengage the pump, some models offer that, if engaged and good water supply, then it has to be your pump

Will not draw water

First check the water supply hoses behind the machine. Where they hook up to machine is the inlet water valve. Unplug the machine. Turn off water supply valves. Remove the hoses from water valve. There are filter screens that can become covered with lime and other debris. Clean with toothbrush and spray bottle to flush the crud away. Also check water flow from supply hoses. Hold hoses over bucket or use tub of washer and turn on the taps. When they get old they can deteriorate from inside. Reattach hoses hand tight then 1/4 trn more with pliers. Do not overtighten. Do not use teflon tape. Do not crossthread. If that doesn't improve water flow your inlet water valve will most likely need replaced. Let me know if you run into difficulty. Good luck.

open drain valve on radiator and drain out system open water from garden hose
run water until clean water run true shut off garden hose and removed cap off with
cap supplied with kit let system drain completly . repeat cleaning operation until

system with premix used recomended coolant only for your engine your freeze
point of new coolant should be above spec and will be fine
do not used pure concentrated coolant only .your ownners manual spec section will

How can the length of the garden hose effect the amount of work done ?

Digital Satellite Coffee Brew Centers Model: BC302E-IT Twin
The Operator's Manual for your product can be found here:


The National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) requires the following for NSF approved installation:

1. A quick disconnect water connection or enough extra coiled tubing (at least 2x the depth of the unit) so that the Brewer can be moved for cleaning underneath.

2. An approved flow-back prevention device such as a double check valve to be installed between Brewer and water supply.


The Brewer comes equipped with a ¼ inch compression water inlet fitting located in the back. Use a ¼ inch copper tubing to connect the Brewer to a cold water supply. Water pressure should be: 20 PSI min. to 90 PSI max. An external shut-off valve and a water filtering system with a charcoal filter are highly recommended. Turn water supply on and check for leaks at the water inlet connections, tighten compression fitting if necessary.

Hook-up using a garden hose would not be recommended; if the hose is too long you may not meet the minimum required pressure and will have difficulty filling the machine.

Machine takes perhaps 45 min to fill with just hot water. It is not in the wall pipes - we had that checked.

On mine I turned off the water and removed the hose off the machine. I looked at the washer where the hose connects and it has a little screen to filter the incoming water. It was cloged with white stuff. I picked the screen out and cleaned it.
Maybe yours is the same thing.
Also I hooked a garden hose to the supply water and let it run full open to help flush anything from the water line.

WHERE DO THE HOSES GO? Where do you hook up the

The water supply screws onto a standard garden hose quick connect that is female on both ends. Screw the end with the point onto the pressure washer and the part with the slide action onto the end of your garden hose. Then slide the parts together until they click. Sometimes you need to wiggle the slide collar a little.
