Home water well problem

Hello,
I have a 400 foot deep home water well. Everything seems to be working fine ie. pressure is holding when not using water, pump turning on and off at proper pressure, plenty of water, etc. Here is my question...at the well head where the cover is on the casing I can hear and feel air escaping around the cover. What can it be? The holding tank is holding pressure, the pump isn't on, everything is quiet except for the air coming out of the hole. Any ideas...

Two things maybe. Are you sure the air is coming out? Not in? If its after the pump stops and then stops after a while it may water rising back up into the sleeve after the pump stops. If you can hear it while the pump is running then maybe its the opposite. Hold a flame near the sound tho see which way the air is going.

New LG washer installed yesterday. Getting the IE message. Followed direction on the manual and a few trouble shooting forums. Everything is connected properly and I am still receiving the message.


IE code ... This may help>>> check your water lines make sure the hot and cold water lines are on correctly they may be reversed... If you need to reset ,just simply unplug and hold the start/pause button for a few seconds... Hope this helps !

How to fix when getting NF from maytag neptune tl washer code


Hello Joanna;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician. I do still work at my trade on the side.

The "NF", means no fill. Check the following:
1.) Go to No Fill Test.
Enter / Exit Service Mode To enter Service Mode press the Help and Back keys for three seconds or until the control beeps. The motor speed will be displayed when started (motor not running display will be 0). Diagnostic codes will be shown and the System Check or Service utility can be started. The present state of the machine will not be changed. (i.e., the current cycle in progress will not be interrupted and only the display will change).
2.) Check to make sure water supply is turned on fully. Normal water level is 1 to 7 inches inside the spinner. 3.) Check electrical circuit and connections at the water valve, and pressure switch. 4.) Check for kinks in inlet hoses. 5.) Check for clogged inlet screens. 6.) Visually check hot and cold separately for fill. 7.) Check for low water pressure. May be dependent on pressure entering home. Variations may occur due to usage in the home at the time machine is used. 8.) Check for frozen pipes and hoses.

Chances are you have a bad fill valve and sensor. I can repair this for you. I need to check the component with my Ohm meter. My charge would be $40.00 for the part and $50.00 for the diagnostic and labor.
I will not charge your my former Sears Home Services Charge of $79.00 to show up at your home + Part price x 2 + $150.00 labor.

We bought this used and brought it home and we know it worked we saw it working now it is hooked up at our home and it will not fill with water.


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that you have recently purchased a Frigidaire washer and it is not filling up with water. I would check to make sure that the valves are fully opened. If the valves are opened it could be a possible problem with the water inlet valve, control panel, or pressure switch. I would advise seeking assistance from a professional technician for proper diagnosis on your washer. -Matt

The error code is blinking F then H. Does not seem to be draining properly.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

FH error is displayed when the control detects no water entering the machine. To clear this error press and hold the PAUSE/CANCEL button twice. You can then check if the water inlet valve is fine and not clogged with foreign particles, try to clean it. If the water inlet valve appears to be fine then check if the pressure switch hose is properly connected to the pressure switch & tub. Please get back to me if you have any questions.

Washing maching won't rinse in cold water


hi is this hot and cold water piped machine? ie two connections on rear of machine for hot and cold pipes ? if so are your pipes connected properly on machine and the water supplies? if cold supply is connected to hot supply then wash inlet allows water in washer then washes in cold? but when rinse is due? the elec valve that has hot water pipe connected?? is failing to open allowing water flow of hot on rinse so advise recheck pipes for flow of water from both? when disconnected from machine if flow ok then possible valve blocked/faulty hope you can understand above? if you can give more info on your machine it would help to offer a remedy?

Water Useage


if the machine works fine and runs through the programme without stopping, then never adjust anything on the machine to alter settings, this can cause more problems, computer control machines do the job very well under normal circumstances, the drum will hold sufficient water even if you can not see it for the clothes it holds, just to confirm this why not do a wash while no clothes so you will be reassured of the fact. i am a recently retired engineer of 20 years experience, and often have to reassure many people of this, don't worry of it works
