Check the flapper. take it out and look at it, if it has any ripples around the edges then your flapper is leaking water down the drain. replace it with a korky they are nice and cheap.

My iron does not get hot enough ,I don't it has enought steam, how do you clean the inside tank where you put the water in

No getting hot enough is indicative of a faulty thermostat?

Tip & How-To about Irons

Cleaning a Laundry Iron Get some CLR descaler and mix it to the directions. Turn the iron on and set it to steam. Turn the iron off and put the CLR into it. When it has cooled a little, sit it faceplate down in an oven proof dish. Leave it over night. The CLR will drip through and sit in the dish cleaning the inside, and the topside of the soleplate. The next day, fill with water and shake upside down to empty any remaining CLR and scale through the fill hole. Keep filling and shaking to empty until the water comes clean.

If you don't want to use CLR, you can use white vinegar undiluted.

Why does my water container fill up even though my machine is plumbed in?

This looks like a fault. The plastic tank has two reed switches that measure 'tank empty' and 'tank half full'. When the tank is empty the inlet solenoids (there are 2 for safety) open and water enters the tank but not so much to fill the tank to the half way level. In normal operation the level water in the tank will drop and then more water is allowed in. In your case it appears the 'half full' reed switch is being activated because the solenoids are not closing off properly and water is leaking in and filling the tank. If you do not empty it then eventually it will fill and leak into the leak. The problem can be caused by either low water pressure (below 145 psi) or sticky solenoid. If is the solenoid then the Miele solution will be to replace both solenoids. Alternately you may be able to remove, take apart and clean. Also check that you have a mesh filter at connection to tap. Also you can temporarily fix the problem by turning off the water at the tap and re-programming machine to 'turn off' the plumed water line. regards

Ensure the Dirt Devil is connected to a working power supply if it does not turn on or operate. Check the fuse or breaker and replace or reset as necessary.

  • 2 Empty the dirty water tank if there is little or no suction. Turn off the Dirt Devil and grab the top of the dirty water tank. Push on the latch to release the tank and pull the tank off the base. Remove the lid and empty the dirty water into a sink. Replace the cap and hook the front of the tank onto the machine base. Hook the nozzle on the base so that the nozzle is level with the cleaner base. Push the back of the dirty water tank down and into position.

  • 3 Check the dirty water tank and empty as necessary if there is water leaking from the cleaner. Open the latch on the top of the solution reservoir and pull the reservoir forward. Fill with Dirt Devil brand cleaner to the fill mark. Fill the rest of the reservoir with hot water and close the cap. Replace on the base unit.
  • 4 Make sure the solution reservoir is seated firmly in the base unit if there is no cleaning solution dispensing from the unit. Fill the solution tank with cleaner and water if the level is low.
  • 5 Examine the hose and nozzles for possible obstructions if the carpet cleaner does not seem to be operating correctly. Remove any blockages.

    The machine is filled up with water , but the water line level keeps blinking kie it's empty

    Check the Float Rocker inside the water tank. Sometimes this comes off the retainer when filling the tank. If this is an older machine from early 2000's or 90's the tanks will have different type of sensors. Most of them that are older the sensors are normally broken and need replacements.

    How do i fill the water

    There is a tank within a tank design on these deep cleaners. Use warm tap water and fill the inner bladder.

    The Tank-in-Tank system is designed with a bladder inside for

    clean water. As you clean, the bladder will empty. Dirty water

    collects in the tank outside the bladder.

    Air tank (underneath house) does not push water out of spigot in sinke or refridgerator.

    You need to test the air pressure with the tank totally empty, remove the tube that is going into the tank and open the tank valve to release all water, if water is in tank and does not come out your bladder is finished and you will need a new tank, if you are able to get all the water out then you need to test PSI again and it needs to be between 7-10 psi, this way when the bladder fills up again with water that pressure will be the ideal 40-50 psi.

    Fill Watertank Message

    The black thing floating in the water tank is a plastic shell with a magnet inside. If you clean it...make sure you reinstall it with the tapered (smaller) side down. There is a slight size difference BUT it will make ALL the difference in the world.

    I had no idea there was a magnet in that black/greyish case. The direction of the casing is important.
    I had the same problem and that solved it!
