    Ok try this same tool but but a coupling to go from the tool to your washer hose it will do the same thing and probably better because of more pressure this WILL work ive done it a million time and keep it on my service van at all time it a life saver just make sure you get the one for 1 1/4" to 2" I think it is

  • Bill Dozier Dec 21, 2007

    yes you have to buy the coupling too it not about $3.00 the tool is a rubber piece about 6"long and has a female thread like on a garden hose I cant remember the real name off hand and what I call it you can put it on this site not a nice word but the tool is in the drain cleaning tool isle you can miss it the rubber is black and the connector is gold you take the hose off your washer put coupling on hose then tool on coupling push the tool all the way in to your pipe and turn on water.HOLD THE HOSE IN THE PIPE IT WILL BLOW OUT before it expands

While using washing machine water leaks out

sounds like the lower pipe or pump pipe is leaking or come away. you need to pull the washer out and place it on its side (left as you look at front) and check the pipes on the bottom, they have pincer clamps on the pipes, if the pipes are cracked or damaged replace them but usually its just they have come loose from drum movement. and just need fitting back on. also the drain pipe needs to be at least 3 inches from the top level with the water in pipes height of the washer so the water does not just come out.

Water is not getting into the washing machine. Fridgidaire Crown series. Water is coming through the hoses. Detatched hose from washer, water still comes out. Cleaned screen on back of washer. No...

Hi. sounds like the pressure system is blocked if it goes through a cycle with no water. Find the pressure switch in the top of the machine its the size of a small coffee jar lid, it has wires and a thin rubber pipe to it, pull the pipe off and see if the switch clicks as you do so. If it does you need to follow the pipe, at the end it goes to the pressure chamber.It will be blocked with gunge and will need cleaning out, also blow through the pipe to make sure thats clear. Make sure you fit the pipe back with no air leaks or the machine will over fill and flood.If you don't feel confident in doing this Please call an engineer.Best to be safe, it could also have damaged the heater or thermal cutout

It wont drain the water away after a wash we

sounds like your pump may be gone, or could be pipe blocked. to check pipe fill machine take outlet pipe at rear of machine and lay this into a bowl. If water flows ok then all pipes are clear. As water is coming through just put machine onto spin cycle and raise hose to see if water will then pump out.

Orientation of inlet pipes

I am not to sure if this answers your question but I think you are asking which way the hot and cold hoses connect to the wasing machine? if this is the case if you look on the back of the washing machine you will see stamped in the metel a H for hot connect the hot water inlet hose to this, If it is not marked, hook up the hot water hose to the washing machine and place the water temp selector to hot and turn machine on if hot water comes out you have the correct hose hooked up,if not then the cold water hose goes were you hooked up the hot water hose. hope this helps

your drain where the hose drain hooks to your house isnt draining fast enough ,there must be lint in the pipe ,when your washing machine pumps out the water the pump shuts off ,but the drain hose is syphoning the water that the drain pipe has in the pipe back into the machine

Running water

Sounds like your stand-pipe has fell over,located behind machine that the drain hose goes into.This pipe must be vertical,and secure.The top of the washers drain hose loop that goes into the stand-pipe, should be as high as your soap dispenser.If this is not the problem then your water pump must be pumping the water out all the time.Can you hear the pump? If so, some faults can force the washing machine into a constant cycle of filling with cold water and pumping the water away if it thinks the washing machine is overheating (possible faulty thermistor).Hopefully its only your stand-pipe causing the loss of water.Lets know how you get on.Good luck.
