Same thing Happened to Us. I corrected it by unscrewing the top and re-snapping into place the Open/Close mechanism.

2000 vw bora se tdi overheating and water disappearing

Hey. Looks like you loosing coolant somewhere. Check radiator and hoses for leaks first. Than check thermostat, fan should engage between 95-100 degrees if it doesn't it may be cooling fan relay or fan itself. Next would be a water pump and if this is not it you may have leak indside the engine. Let me know what you found.

The machine doesn't rinse out his water in the machine. it washes still good, but the water stays in the machine. i cannot open the door due to water would spill out.

check that the water pump is working can you hear it running when the cycle comes to spin / rinse if not replace the motor if so then check all hoses for blocks. undo the water pump filter and see if there is anything jamming the pumps blades

good luck

get back to me if you need further advice

E2 error code on Haier cprd12xh7 portable air conditioner

Hi! You need to check pump filter. It could be jammed with a coin or hair clip. Now take the machine outside and empty it then lay it on its side and you can access the pump. Take it off, stand up the machine and pour hot water into the soap draw and check water should run out of bottom freely taking any fluff or bits with it. Now take apart the pump and clean it and dry all components before re-assembly. If the machine still doesn?t work then you need to replace the pump. Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee

Ran without water will not fill now

Try unplugging the machine for 30 minutes then plugging it back in. I am worried that the pump is bad due to the fact that it needs water to add resistance to work properly and without water the pump spins so free the it burns itself out. But first try unplugging the dishwasher first

if the water pump is not maknig any noise then it is likely to be either jammed with sediment, rusted, burnt out or simply a connection problem

this pumps are not usually bolted in, they are a usually a push fit
i would remove the plastic tube, connecting wires and remove the pump
check it, clean it out and lubricate it with WD40 or similar
wait awhile for the WD40 to penatrate

then test it by using 2 pieces of wire and connecting straight to the car battery terminals
if it works like this then
check and clean the pump connector terminals - if you have a multimeter check for 12 volts (have someone operate the screen wash stalk, if you dont have a multimeter you could use 2 wires and a car bulb (stop lamp, sidelight or indicator bulb)

failing this just reconnect the pump if it works - great
if not the the problem is electrical

Follow up to your front loader question (from mozaltoff)

The fact that the timer would not complete its cycle indicates that is defective, and because your washer is not draining this may be cause by a clogged water pump.

Test the timer motor by setting your meter to the ohm and test the two motor wirers-should read between 1,000 to 3,000 if not replace.

If won't drain remove the outlet drain hose from the water pump to see if water drains freely, if not your pump is clogged.

Good luck
