We've bleed we've changed thermostat the water housing tank , in an o4 Sebring what's sign of bad water pump

Noise coming from water pump when engine is running, very slow or virtually no circulation of coolant in the radiator. To hear if the water pump bearing is going out..Take a long screwdriver or tire iron and touch and hold against water pump while engine is running, put ear to other like a stethoscope..just be careful you have it in a steady place on water pump so belt doesn't turn it into a projectile!
if you feel like its the water pump, take serpentine belt off and see if pulley on water pump has any play up or down or front to back, and spin with hand should spin freely...if has play or doesn't spin freely or you can hear, usually a kind of whining noise coming from water pump, it needs replacing. The water pump also has a small hole onthe bottom side, if the diaphragm in waterpump goes bad it will usually have a slow steady drip coming from the hole. Have you had the radiator pressure tested?

Washer WPSR3100WOWW Will wash but not drain and spin... Stops at the rinse Cycle

Does it leave water inside the tub? There are a couple of possibilitys. One could be the drain pump. If this fails the wash/rinse cycle will stop as it can sense the water not being pumped out. Can you hear the light sound of a small motot running when it goes into rinse cycle? Listen down at the very bottom far right side or far left side. If you hear the drain pump motor running is there any water discharging out the drain tube going into the wall? You should easily hear the flowing water. If not you have a few possible problems: Drain pump has an obstruction in or around it or, drain pump is actually bad.

Where is the water pump on a 1986 winnebago chieftain

I would look under the sink or near the power panel or near the water tank. There is no standard place for a pump ... except to say it will be in a "utulity" space hidden, but accessible.

I suggest you run the pump to assist in finding where it is. Put water into the tank and turn on the pump and turn on the water faucet. You should be able to hear it. If you get no water or you don't hear it, you may have a blown fuse ... or ... you may not have a pump. Who knows what has happened to your Chieftan in the past 25 + years

Let me know how you make out.

Thanks for your quesiton @

Maytag quiet 400 will not pump in water,

I would 1st check the line for any blockage,both into the pump and out of the pump. If not blocked try turning on with panel off to see if you can hear/feel the water pump running(to make sure electric is getting to pump). If it is,then most likely need to replace the pump. Check this site if u need inexpensive parts Good Luck

Does not pump water away code LE

Do you hear the pump running? If so, the problem will be a blockage. Either inside the machine at the water outlet, at the pump or more likely in the outlet hose. Endeavor to ascertain that the outlet hose is completely clear.
If you do not hear the pump operating the problem could be either the pump or the electronics that drive the pump.

Ventilate!....shows in window and machine will not ventilate when knob is opened. it has regularly been de-scaled but we do live in a hard-water area.

Generally you can clear the ventilate error by pressing the button for Hot Water and then opening the steam knob. You should hear the pump run and water should start to flow from the steam wand. If it doesn't, try removing the frother nozzle so just the chrome pipe is showing.

To remove the frother nozzle you slide the outer sleeve off, and then grip the nozzle with one hand while twisting the cap to loosen it. Then it should slide off the metal steam pipe. Or you can check that the tip of the nozzle isn't clogged.

If you have the frother removed and the steam pipe is definitely open and not clogged and you still hear the pump running but no water is coming out, the next step is to prime the pump.

If you still have the squeeze bulb pump that came with the machine, you can use that - or if you don't have it, a turkey baster will work. You want to take the water tank off and set it aside, then pump water into the valve in the center where the tank had been sitting. You choose "Hot Water" and open the steam valve so the pump starts and then pump water into that valve with the Turkey Baster. You should hear the pump catch and start to move the water - when this happens immediately close the steam valve so the pump stops - then replace the water tank (filled with water please) and open the steam valve again and let water run out of the steam wand for several seconds.

That should clear the ventilate message.

If pump does not work then what should i priory

Need more information to solve your problem.

Does the pump come on (do you hear it?) but no water comes out when you make coffee?

When you select Hot Water and open the steam valve, does the pump run and does water come out the steam valve?

If you hear the pump running but no water is coming out - then it could either be that the pump needs to be primed. In that case you would select Hot Water and open the steam valve all the way and let water run out the wand for a minute or two.

If the steam wand delivers water but you don't get any water when you brew coffee, then either the coffee is ground so fine that the water cannot go through the coffee grinds OR the filter disc may be plugged up. Try grinding coarser and try removing the filter disc and cleaning it with a toothbrush - hold the disc to the light and verify that you can see through all the tiny holes.

If it pumps water for coffee but you don't get water out the steam pipe, then the steam wand may be plugged with hardened milk - in that case remove the plastic frother and soak it and clean it. Also use a bent paperclip to clean the hole in the end of the chrome steam pipe.

If the pump doesn't run at all and you don't hear any pump noises ever - then either the pump has failed or has a loose wire.

Washer stops at spin will not spin or drain?

It could be a bad contact switch on the (mechanical) timer/switch.
Could be a number of reasons for this problem though.Can you hear the pump kicking on after the rinse cycle?
If not, then it could be the timer switch, but it also may be the pump has burnt out.
If you can hear the pump kicking on, then you may have a clogged pump or one of the hoses running to or out of the pump may be clogged.
Could also be that the belt
from the motor to the pump has broken.
Suggest you manually drain the tub, remove the clothes, UNPLUG the washer, turn it over on its side, (if there is no access panel on the back), then check the belt. If it looks okay, (and you were able to hear the pump kicking on), then suggest you remove the clamps from the pump hoses and check to see if there is anything stuck inside one of them. (such as a sock). If the hoses are clear, then remove the pump and take it to your kitchen sink and try running some water through pump intake to see if it runs out the other end. If the water will not run through the pump, then it is most likely clogged. Remove the screws, open it up and clean it out.
Thanks for contacting

There seems to be no water preassure comming out of my krystal clear deluxe salt water system, model# 8111. What could be wrong? I have lost my manual and the system is indicating code 90.

sounds like air lock
disconnect skimmer ( if you use one) from inside of pool
make sure the tube going from pool to pump has no debris at the motor housing
hair can build up there then trap other debris
no open you bleeder caps till water runs freely
once water is coming out and you do not hear air turn on the pump
let run for a minute then close the caps

Maytag dishwasher won't drain water

It may be a water pump issue. You need to run it through a cycle and listen to hear if the pump is trying to run when it should drain. If you hear the pump running, but nothing is draining, you likely have a clog somewhere either going to or in the drain hose.
