HF error on display


An FH error often means that the machine doesn't see the water coming into the machine (or that the water pressure is too low). If the water has been flowing into the washer for 8 minutes, then the pressure switch is faulty. (The unit shuts off the water flow and gives the error to avoid flooding.) Press Pause/Cancel Twice.

If there was no water to the machine, check that the inlet water valves are open. Check the inlet hose filters for clogs and that the hoses aren't kinked. You may want to change your water hoses in case they sealed themselves against leaks. Also check your incoming water pressure.

If there was water in the washer, check that the drain pump is functioning (and that nothing is clogging the pump filter/coin catcher). Also check that the discharge hose isn't positioned lower than the water level in the washer. This will cause a siphon problem where the water will flow in and out of the washer continuously.

Disconnect the washer from the power and make sure that all of the wiring for the inlet valves, pressure switch, drain pump and flow valve have no breaks in them. Make sure that the inlet and outlet hoses inside the washer are not leaking. (The connection between the hose and the drain pump and the hoses to the washer tub can leak.)

After this set of tests, reconnect the power and check the pressure switch, the flow meter and the CCU (main control board). Replace any faulty part.

You may want to consult a repair person for some of these tests and repairs. If the washer is under warranty, get the unit serviced if the problem isn't in the hoses.

I hope this helps.

I am looking for a battery water timer that does not need pressure to operate. Just gravity. Any ideas?


Google search: 'battery operated timer' and 'battery operated hose end'

Smarthome shows the Orbit: and has manual:
http://www.smarthome.com/31035/Orbit-57860-Battery-Operated-Sprinkler-Timer-with-Inline-Valve/p.aspx

The manual says 'turn down water pressure.' It looks to me like this timer opens and closes the valve with or without water pressure.
Sounds like it would be perfect timer for above ground cistern where gravity cause water to flow when valve is opened.

Amazon shows battery operated hose end, but doesn't show manual:
Hose end timers are not going to have a pressure gauge.

My KitchenAid Superba (whisper quiet ultima) started to leak out the front when it is running. Is this an easy repair or should we think of replacing the dishwasher? BTW - we love this dishwasher!


Hello. If the unit is over ten years old, I advise against repair. But if you do wish to consider repair, here are the things to look at

Main tub seal Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly. The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the: Lower rack Spray arm Spray arm support Wash/drain impellers Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it. Door gasket or seal Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary. The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve. Hoses Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

Water is leaking out from the bottom


If the washer leaks all the time, check these:
  • Water inlet valve: If water drips even when the washer is off,check the water inlet valve. It is located inside the washer at the back of the unit. The fill hoses are attached to it. Replace if deemed necessary.
  • Water fill hoses: Check the water hoses from the household plumbing. Tighten it or replace it as necessary..
  • Main tub seal: It is located between the transmission and the outer tub. To see the leak, fill the machine with water with small amount of detergent then open up the machine's main access panel.. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. The seal is difficult to replace and you probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.
  • Pump: You can spot the leak when the tub is full of water if the pump leaks. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. Replace it as necessary if it leaks.
  • Outer tub: The outer tub can rust, split, or be punctured.You may have to replace the entire tub but its not economical repair to do. Consult a qualified technician for details.
If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:
  1. Air-gap device: It is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It is located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. It is usually made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you have to replace it.
  2. The tube: It is a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.
  3. Inlet spout: It is a plastic spout found on most washers near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.

Leaking dishwasher


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference.

Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment. you should check the main tub seal, the door latch, the door gasket, the water-inlet valve, and the fill and drain hoses.

Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).

Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses.

An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.



Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

My clients unit is leaking substaintial water in


Check the drainage hose to see if its connected properly. it is located under the unit. it may be loose or, not connected correctly. if the drainage hose is connected properly, this will be a faulty water valve. replace if found to be faulty.
