It needs replacing.

Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tub. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear

For a tub overflow washer (Part# PPC826-3) where should the "thick end" go - top or the bottom? Is pasting a little silicone recommended on it so that it has a better seal after I tighten the screw?


The thicker end goes up because of the sloped end of the bathtub. You should not need to apply any sealant - the gasket is compressed as the screw is tightened.

K-1357 kohler whirlpool tub there is leaking only when the tub is filled and drained. when taking showers there are no leaks 3yrs old


Overflow? Seal around drain may be good enough for shower, but leaks with a little more pressure from the filled tub. Filled tub may flex the tub and drain components. What about the overflow. I bet some water is going over, but it isn't used for showers. Double check. Paper towels tied in stratigic locations always help me find a leak. Leak makes the towel soak up water nearby. It's most wet at the point of leak.

How do I remove a geberit waste and overflow fitting


Tub overflows have a connection behind the drain flipper. You will also need to get under the tub or into the wall behind the flipper to cisconnect the nuts connecting the drain pipes.

Need a waste system for my ceda roma whirlpool bath


What you need to search for at your local plumbing store is an EXTENDED overflow. An overflow for a jetted tub is taller than for a soaker tub.
This is taller than a regular overflow.
This needs to be between 22-28" tall.

We bought a house 3 months ago and have been noticing a sewer gas smell after being here for a month. Our house has been completely remodeled and plumbing redone. The smell is coming from the bathtub...


I would suspect inadequate venting causing the traps to empty, if the toilet is plumbed
near the tub and the vent stack was not used then it would cause the water to be sucked out of the trap during flush.
If the trap for the sink was inserted too far it can block off venting in the vertical
run of pipe. (I once saw an entire rental property with this issue).
If the tub needs snaked it can also cause this problem as part of the venting
may be tied to the tub. Hope this helps.

Why do the stackable washers always overflow with water. Is it a sensor problem or what?


Overflowing can be caused by a faulty pressure switch or tube from switch to the tub. It is operated by air pressure from water filling in the tub. If this does not activate then the inlet valve will continue to allow water to enter the machine. If it is overflowing during spin only it is most likely something obstructing the pump. If it is filling the tub even when the machine is off the problem is the inlet valve.

Overflow outside bathroom dripping how do Ifix it?


Just make sure that the over flow is tight with gasket in place. And all fitting's tight behind wall goin gto tub overflow. If it is check out out next step

1-This is a common issue that comes up. Make sure that the shower valve plate is sealed and tight to tub wall. Reason why I ask that is when you take a shower water will find a way out, down the plate or if tile at the point of where it meet's tub. And will look totally like it's the overflow every time.

Frigidaire GLWS1339EC Washer Overflowing


Do not blow to the switch. Blow from the switch to the tub. The blockage is soap scum in the air bell on the side of the tub. You may have to run a small wire into the tub area where the air hose attaches on the side of the tub.
