Re: motherboard bottom flooded in 2 inches of water
You can contact HP customer support at 1 800-474-6836 to get a replacement motherboard.
They will ask you for the model number and serial number of your pc. An option you have is to simply order the motherboard and replace it yourself or send the system back to HP to have it fixed.
You could also purchase another motherboard from a pc company that sells individual parts. The motherboard doesn't necessarily have to be the same as the one you're replacing.
The advantage of replacing the motherboard with one of the exact same type is that your hard drive already contains all of the drivers specific to your motherboard so you shouldn't run into any problems when you replace the motherboard and turn it on.
If you use a different type of motherboard all together, you'll more than likely have to re-install your operating system.
Be sure to check the other components in your system to make sure they haven't been damaged by the water also.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

That moldy smell that you get is from all the condensation water sitting in the condensation pan between seasons, if the unit is accessible, you could clean the algae from the pan, also, if the unit is located in a external are, it doesn't hurt to wash the coils with a coil cleaner and water.
Remove the front panel - In the crack where the top and
front meet about 2 inches over from each edge there are clips you push
in with a putty knife or flat blade screwdriver and the front releases
at the top and un hooks from the bottom. Now put washer in the spin
cycle. right in front at bottom is the motor and on top of the motor is
a silver colored part ( the inverter) look in between the motor and the
inverter on the right about 2 inches back - you should see a green
light that is flashing ( it may help to darken the room) Tell me how
many times it is flashing.
Your water fill valve is slowly leaking water into your dishwasher. Your need to turn off the house water valve, to your dishwasher, and see if the problem stops. If it does then replace the dishwasher water fill valve. If it doesn't stop, then you have water coming in through your drain lines, which is highly unlikely. You will have to check to make sure your drain line has a high loop in it, or install an air gap. Good luck, Appliance Specialists
As you know, the evaporator unit (the one that the filter covers) gets a lot of condensation which is drained thru the back (outside) of the unit. That's why the unit is installed a bit tilted to the back.
The factory drain hole is too small and gets plugged up easy, some units don't even have one, the water sits for long periods of time. bacteria grows and the smell starts.
Unplugg unit from electrical outlet.
Make sure the unit is tilted back a little.
Drill two 1/4" inch drain holes in the same back bottom corner and set a bucket to collect the dirty water that will come out while cleaning it.
Get a quart of air conditioning grill cleaner (the ecol-friendly, it is purple in color) mix it on a spray bottle with water on a 1:1 ratio.
Use masking tape and some plastic to cover electrical controls in front of unit.
Following application instruccions on bottle, carefully spray on evaporator and condenser, avoiding electrical controls. Rinse with pure water, 2 qts. minimum on each grill, let it drain for about one hour.
Uncover controls and connect unit to power outlet.
Run the fan-only for about 10 min. and then the compressor.
There are more professional ways to service the unit, but performing this simple steps will keep your unit in good shape.
If you had a flood and any water got into bottom of machine, you have probably shorted out a motor control board. These board are either in the lower back right or front left corner bottom. A qualified service tech should be called to do this repair.
The problem can still be in your lines, or in the dispenser itself. If you run hot water with a little bit of vinegar in the lines and let it sit for about 30 minutes and then flush the whole system this should take care of your problem
moldy smell, may not be mold at all, in fact most "moldy musty" smells actually come from user not using proper detergents, you NEED to be using an HE detergent and little amounts of that even. cut back on fabric \softneer if using, www.affresh.com new product to help alleviate this issue
the motor on most dryers sits approx 1 inch off of floor on bottom base plate.if you had more water than that,you have a open motor winding.aprox price for repair if u call a tech is $300.washers stand a better chance of surviving a flood,dryers very rarely do.
Hello Mimhoff it depends on how much water is down there. The sump area always has a little water in it to prevent the circulation pump seals from sticking. Usually around 1 to 2 inches. If there is more than that, check the slots at the bottom of the sump on the left side for being clogged and check the end of the drain hose to make sure it is clear. If you are getting a moldy/odor from the dishwasher, try running Dishwasher Magic or Tang thru the dishwasher. This will remove any build up of food or detergent from the dishwasher. If you are running the dishwasher every few days and just scraping your dishes, then either leave the door ajar or run the rinse & hold cycle to help keep the odor down. Bosch doesn't reccommend running bleach thru the dishwasher as this can cause damage to the rubber seals. However 2 tablespoons of bleach once a year won't hurt.
Your machine has detected a "flood" condition and has defaulted to its flood mode. Meaning that only the drain pump will work until the flood is fixed.
Bosch D/W's are pretty slick, the entire unit is sitting inside a drain pan that's designed to catch an overflow (flood) keeping the water off of your floor. This overflow pan has a Styrofoam float that rises with the flood and trips the "flood mode". The water in the pan has to be removed allowing the float to drop back down before you can use your dishwasher again.
There are 2 ways to do this... the easy way and the hard way.
1.) Easy way---> Wait a few days. The water will eventually evaporate out of the drain pan all by itself. Takes longer than the hard way, but no tools are involved.
2.) Hard way---> (not actually "hard") TURN POWER OFF TO THE DISHWASHER! Remove the lower kick panels (below the door). Remove the 2 screws holding the water valve in place, and push the valve up as far as you can. Now use a "Shop-Vac" with a long crevice tool attachment. Stick the crevice tool in where the valve was... make sure to reach in there about 8 or 9 inches, (the safety float is in there on the left, you can see it with a flashlight) otherwise it won't reach the water. Now simply suck up as much water as you can. You won't be able to get it all, you just need enough removed to drop the float.
Now try your D/W... after a normal 2 minute drain, it should fire right up.
