Question about Flotec Corrosion Resistant Shallow Well Jet Pump 1/2HP, 8GPM

1 Answer

Our pump continuously cycles everytime we flush

Our pump continuously cycles when the water is on during the duration of our shower. It seems to cycle everytime we flush the toilet once or run some dish water. I did a test with our outside hose and we get approx. 3gal/min. The pump is a 2 stage 3/4 hp and the horizontal tank size is 20gal.

Loss of hot water during shower with an electric tankless water heater.


You are using the hot water at a faster rate than your tankless unit can provide. Either get a more powerful unit or reduce the amount of water flow thru the unit during the duration of shower.

If the washer leaks water when is filling only, check the following: 1.Fill hoses

1.The pump
2.The tub stem & seal
3.Tub to pump hose
4.The drain hose
5.Tub (rusted holes)
6.The drum support bolts

I have a Maytag Performance series washer. Model MTW5740TQ0. It agitates during Wash cycle, but will not spin during after the Rinse cycle. It does this more times (95%) than not, but not everytime.


It may be falsely sensing water in the tub. Do you hear the pump running after the rinse (trying to pump out water that isn't there)? This would indicate a fault in the water level sensor. Does it seem to sense the water level correctly after the wash cycle? It could also be a timer problem.

Failure of the valve in the cold water inlet section., Remove and clean, back flush with high pressure and if there is no result you must replace. Check the valve winding to confirm if the coil /solenoid is working.

I have a problem with my Asko D3350 Dishwasher, can you help? On startup the diswasher does its normal cycle and pumps excess water out and then fills the dishwasher with water to the correct level of...


Hi Tony,

I have the same machine (D3350) and almost the same problem.

Mine starts each cycle fine - pumps out - fills - rinses - pumps out tht first load and then does not fill again. If I manually fill with a bottle (about 2 litres) for each subsequent cycle then it washes as well as it ever did.

Seeing it fills once it cannot be the water supply, nor the solenoid that operate the water supply. So, my guess is the control panel.

Like you I would love to simply take advantage of the PC Upgradeable featurewshich seemed so attractive at the time of pruchase.

The dishwasher seems to be cycling - but I no longer get the flush into my disposal and I don't hear much water circulating inside the machine. Also, the soap doesn't all diappear. Any suggestions?


The high pressure water pump is defective and is not spraying the much required jets of water to the dishes.
This is the reason that your dishes are also not cleaned.
You might have to remove and check if the pump is faulty or a cleaning job can rectify the issue.

During short spin cycles between rinses it doesn't pump water out


Try looking to see if the little motor is spinning the drain pump. It is in the bottom right. Occasionally I get a small metal shard which locks the pump and therefore-no draining. You can undo everything and check the pump for blockage. Then if need be, replace the mechanisim. The parts are all on line, as is the manual. or call 800 776-3538
