Question about Malber P21 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Water leak Just hooked up for first time in a year.   It was on our porch ~ decided to check the pump filter before turning it on.  Found it full of water ~ which may have frozen and thawed several times.  The cap looked a little warped, also the black seal.  Turned the machine on and water poured out near the bottom front right.  Turned it right off.  The man that hooked it up checked the hoses for leaks, found none and he is knowledgeable.   I'm thinking it may need a new pump filter 'cylinder'. {And where can I get one asap?   I'm in south central Ct.}  Any ideas?   Thanks for your help

Do I hook up just the pool filter for 24 hours and then hook the intex salt walter filter onto the pump?

When you are opening the pool each year or for the 1st time, you hook up the filter pump and than the Salt System before you start filtering the salt... Eventhough you filter the freshly added Salt into the pool for the 1st 24hrs, it can run through the salt system, just don't turn it on like you mentioned... The trick is once you start running the salt system is to get the chlorine levels up as quick as you can... I have not mastered this yet after 3 years but I will consult my Local Pool Chemical Supplier next year before opening the pool... So I think you should do the same...

Good Luck...

Why my refrigerator is leaking water from the top where the water filter is located?

Shut off water supply valve. Relieve water pressure by dispensing water. Unscrew water filter. Examine to see if the gasket is damaged or if filter was loose and just needed tightening. Or simply replace water filter with the correct water filter that your GE refrigerator calls for.

Leaking roof

You need to call a roofer to install some metal flashing pieces. That will create a metal channel for the water to flow down instead of through your roof. Look in the Yellow Pages of your local phone book.

I have a 6 year old Pentair Dynamo 340210 pump for my above ground pool. The past 2 weeks, after I back washed the filter- the pump seem to not be pulling very much water into the filter and it is not...

It sounds like you have a air leak on the suction side. I am assuming the pump is operating at full speed. Check for a cracked line especially around fittings. Try cycling the back flush valve as well. I hope that helps.

Hayward sand filter needs primed every time

The problem is a malfunctioning check valve. It'll be somewhere in the line on the pump output side. If it's not a separate fitting it'll be in the line, probably in an elbow.

Need further info, let me know...

GE smartwater R.O. system leaking out weep hole

Same exact problem started for us last night. (Same model, installed by me about four+ years ago) Water was really coming out of the weep hole, and didn't stop until I shut it off at the valve. This happened once before, and all I had to do was clean the drain line adapter, because it gets full of gunk from the disposal over time. But this time that did not do the trick. (Plus there was not all that much gunk this time....) So I was baffled for awhile but came up with this solution.

I hooked up a small length of clear tubing to my cheap-o tire inflater/air compressor. Put the clear tube against the weep hole. Turned on the compressor, and VOILA!, a bunch of gunk that was clogging the drain tube came out. I think when this tube, or the drain line adapter gets clogged, it causes water to go out the weep hole instead of down the drain. (If you don't have a small compressor, then theoretically there is enough air pressure from something like a bicycle pump, and this solution *might* work with one of those. But if you try this, of course only use the DOWNWARD (air-going-outward) pump action...pulling up (inward) would force the clog deeper up the drain tube)

Water leaking from under washer


You'll need to open the machine and check for the leaks in the hose connected to the drain pump. Also check if the clamp connecting the drain filter and hose is tight. Also check these things for leaks---

Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace.

Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you'll need to replace it.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa if found useful and revert for further assistance.

Water runs out of the bottom of the unit

Check your plastic water orifice. It is in the hose fitting connected to the outlet tube of the water solenoid. It should be a blue one. Mine was completely eaten through, allowing full water flow, and thus overflowing the distribution tray. I replaced mine yesterday and no more water drips. May as well reflace the filter on the inlet tube of the solenoid at the same time. I used a piece of very stiff, but thin, wire formed into a small hook to remove both old parts. Replacements are readily available from multiple sources on line.

Whirlpool clean pump problem

This is from the Whirlpool user manual for the AWO\R 4205 - it tried it and it worked well, found a hair grip and some stones in mine!

We recommend that you check and clean the filter
regularly, at least two or three times a year.
If the appliance is not draining properly or if it fails to
perform spin cycles.
. If the pump is blocked by a foreign body (e.g. buttons,
coins or safety pins).
IMPORTANT: make sure the water has cooled
before draining the appliance.
Stop the appliance and unplug it.
2. Remove the plinth by using the separator of the
detergent dispenser (fig. .A.).
3. Place a container beneath it.
4. Open the filter but do not remove it completely.
Slowly turn the filter counterclockwise (fig. .B.) until
the water begins to drain out.
5. Wait until all the water has drained.
6. Now unscrew the filter completely and remove it.
7. Clean the filter and the filter chamber.
8. Check that the pump rotor moves freely.
9. Re-insert the filter and screw it in clockwise as far as it
will go.
10. Pour about 1 litre of water into the detergent drawer
to reactivate the .Eco system.. Check that the filter is
inserted properly and securely.
11. Reinstall the plinth.
12. Plug in the appliance again.
13. Select a programme and start it.
