    problem was a clogged sediment filter that reduced the flow of water.
    the hot interior cooked the remaining soap in the line while it was waiting to fill.
    commercial dishwashers need careful monitoring.
    new filter resolved the problem.

    soap wont eat through the wires. in this case, the soap that ran backwards when the nozzle was cooked closed, ran into the pump motor. that caused the armature to glaze over and overheat the windings. the wires were cleaned off, as were the other interior components. the motor was changed as it was not a serviceable motor in this continent. it came from europe with an assortment of vendor parts that are no longer available. so, in short, the short was from the soap in the motor. the soap clogged because the sediment filter was clogged and stopped the water. without water, the soap pump continued to run, as well as the water heating element, trying to heat the non-existent water. a $5.00 filter replacement would have prevented a rather expensive repair. altogether about $900 with the motor and time to replace it. all sorts of parts were not replaced. only the motor that tested 'dead', and the fill nozzle which was baked closed. finally the filter was replaced.

    thanks for thinking about this problem.

Ouch.

Before you start changing all sort of parts, correct your problem with the wires. You may have to change most of them, depending on how bad the chemical burned tru them.

A good cleaning is required because that soap is going to continue chewing on those wires.

You're right about a short causing other component failure. But first repair those wires

Soap dispenser is still full after 4 trys. I ran the washer with the dispenser out and it seems that the water is not coming out of the jets above the soap dispenser, only the bleach dispenser?


Did you try cleaning up the water filters where the water hoses connect to the washer in the back? I had mine clogged with sediment one time and water was not coming out properly.

Motor pulses on full power wash


It sounds like you either have a clogged nozzle or one that is too small for your pump. At lower speeds the pump is pumping less gpm. So your unloader valve does not cycle. Then when you go to full power. The engine is running faster and pumping more gallons per minute. The nozzle is too small or clogged and so the bypass opens and closes ( surges) Try a new nozzle that is the right size for your machine.

Water pouring out of the detergent drawer


Remove the dispenser draw and pour water down the soap chute as much as you can to soften any soap causing the blockage. When the water level drops, add more water. After a while use a soft flexible rubber hose and run it down the chute up and down to remove caked soap. Once this has been achieved, run the machine on "Rinse & Spin" to clean out the drum.

Bissell cleanview carpet cleaner


There are a few things that can cause a Bissell carpet cleaner to not dispense water. First thing to check is the belts if your machine is a Pro Heat. The flat belt goes around the motor shaft and the pump. As the motor runs it spins the pump. This is a stretch belt and stretch belts should be replaced at least once or twice per year to work properly as they will lose elasticity even if the machine has never been turned on. The first thing to check is to see if water will spray from the upholstery tool. If it sprays but you still get no water at the floor jets then check and clean the jets to insure they are not clogged. Getting water from the upholstery tool means the pump is working ok. If not, make sure the water tank and soap tank are not empty. Even if the water tank is full make sure the soap tank is full too. I would suggest NOT putting any soap in the soap tank because that is what causes most of the problems. Put plain tap water in the soap tank and try the machine again. Hold the trigger down giving it plenty of time to flush out any air bubbles and/or soap from the pump and the lines. If you still can't get any water from to the floor jets the most likely problem is the heater is clogged with mineral deposits or soap gunk. When a machine sits in the closet for months the soap in the lines coagulates and will clog things up. Which is why if you want the machine to work for a long time NEVER put soap in it. To do a better job of cleaning put your soap and hot water into a sprayer and use this solution to pre-condition the carpets. Pre-conditioning gives the soap and hot water a chance to dissolve the gunk in your carpets, then use fresh hot water in the machine to flush the soap and dirt from your carpets. Your machine will last longer and your carpets will be cleaner and stay clean longer because you rinsed out the soap. If you try this method you will be amazed how much cleaner your carpets will be.
If you need to clean the heater you will need to separate the handle assembly by removing all the screws. First make sure the machine is unplugged. You'll have to figure out which screws need to come out, it's not too tough. The heater is inside the handle. Look at how it comes apart so you will know how to put it back together. The heater is the silver metal thing with wires and hoses. Remove the screws that hold the cover on being sure not to lose any of the tiny red gaskets. Remove the cover and clean the soap or mineral deposits from the heater core, put the cover back on and put it back together and it should work fine. To keep it from getting clogged again simply make sure you use soft water if minerals were the problem and never put soap in the machine.

Efo


Hello,the EFO code is a general error that is caused because of 2 things:

1.Use of too much soap can be one of the cause of the error. to clear it run the machine through a quick cycle or normal cycle but without using the soap which will drain out the excess soap.

2. The other reason could be that the drain pipe is clogged , to clear it you can remove the back cover of the pump an remove the hose. Inspect them and clean them if nay obstruction.

Thanks

2001 escort 55d van - windscreen washer bottle full, washer pump running but no water


Possible blockage in line or at the nozzle ends. There is a small screen that keeps debris from entering the lines but can get clogged. The screen is plastic and is inside the reservoir at the bottom between the pump and the outlet hose. Remove and clean the screen as needed. If the problem persists there is most likely a clog in the line. Slightly higher pressurized air (more than the washer pump can produce) could clear the clog. Be sure to check the nozzles for blockage too. Good luck to you

Bosch WFMC 3200 Front Load will not pump water out


the pump gears could be stripped or clogged with soap residue including the line from the pump to include the drain hose itself. I took the back of my machine off after cleaning the pump twice to find the reservoir full of a brown soap gunk/sludge. there is also a small rubber tube that runs from this reservoir back into the drum which was plugged shut with the same gunk. this thick soap residue can damage the pump motor or slow the drainage system to get the E 04 warning. I cleaned the gray drain hose out with the garden hose and was amazed at the sludge that game out. When the machine would run on the drain cycle we would also get a sewage smell that I thought was coming form the drain trap but turned out to be caused by the sludge in the pump. After cleaning the system and now using no more that a tablespoon of soap it works great & the cloths are clean.

Kenmore Elite HE4t Washer


WE had a person with the same problem with her HE4 front loaded washer. What we discovered was when we opened up the soap resivour was that soap built up around the float valves causing them to stick.

A technician I knew put vinegar down the soap dispensor and ran the cycle, with the washer empty. He put it on in the hot water mode and ran it for four or five complete cycles like washing clothes.

It worked for him. Try it like it did for him to see if it helps. If not, you will need to contact a service technician to see if the SUD error code means something else.

Sometimes the timer boards get a bit of moisture on them and cause a corrosion headache. I have yet to see anyone figure out a way to dry them off, and when condensation builds up, it usually means there is a problem causing the condensation to get that far up. On some versions a foam seal gets worn out from time, often needs to be replaced to prevent moisture built up.

Another thing that sometimes does it is the back of the machine, will be too close to the wall or have debris back behind there causing it not to be able to breath.
