The water level sensor tube may be blocked. Try blowing through it from the sensor end. If it's clear, get a tube and blow into the sensor and see if that effects the machine.....Try googling the brand and model of the machine. Most important to have brand and model number when seeking information

Lg wf-t1022tp gives a PE error code.


Try this first before replacing any parts or disassembling your LG washer:

- If the wire harness from the water level pressure sensor to the main control board is found to be faulty, replace it.
- If you get continuity and the wiring harness is securely connected to both the water level pressure sensor and the main control board, then proceed to the step below...

How can I bypass the lid lock model # NTW47018QO


the lock function was added to elimimiate the danger of someone sticking there body parts inside machine (they can kill a human or pet) while its operating this is a safety function and really should not be bypassed unless in very special uses , this function used to be done by a lid switch that shut power off to machine , the lid lock now is easy to disengage just press the stop button in as soon as machine stops moving the the lid should unlock allowing you to open it to Add/remove items , I do warn folks that if any items are added after fill step the auto water level sensor has already made its calculation of needed water so what's in there after more clothes are added will not have sufficient water level to clean properly resulting in disappointed washing results

I have a Samsung front load washing machine wf328aaw/xaa. the washer stops when it gets to the drain function. The drain pump motor is not getting the 120 to run the motor. I removed and tested the


There is a water level sensor that could inhibit the operation of the pump if it is indicating that the water level is low. There is also a small relay in the control panel (on the control circuit card), which may have dirty contacts. That is the contacts are not closing properly. Unfortunately, this relay is not readily accessible to consumers and even quite difficult to service for the professionals. I posted a description of the repair or cleaning of the contacts on the question placed by another user "My Drain Pump Doesn't Work"

Service light on Honeywell humidifier


Sounds like a Water Level Sensor problem. Read the service manual, pages 51 and 53.

http://www.forwardthinking.honeywell.com/related_links/humidification/69_2285.pdf



Unplug the power cord. Turn OFF water. Remove the Water Level Sensor - One screw holds down the spring clip. Remove water scale in the compartment and on the Sensor. Test Sensor with an ohm meter. If OK, reassemble and try again. If bad, replace the sensor.


If you have heavy scale buildup in the sensor compartment, you need better water filtration. Your problems are just starting. This system can be very difficult to clean thoroughly.

1. I need a service manual 2. how do you raise the water level of the machine


The water level sensor is a pressure switch and there is setting to which as the water gathers into the TUB the pressure exerted on the diaprgram within the pressure switch will correspond and determine the point of switching. So to increase the level within ( make sure that the switch is working as a damaged pressure switch will REQUIRE more water pressure to switch -- faulty diaphragm.)
To increase the level you can set the diaphragm controller to a higer setting-- this provision is seen on most pressure switches so that a higher pressure is needed to switch on thereby the water level goes higher.

No water vapor coming out


You might need to check either the water level sensor or make sure that there aren't any deposits on the nebulizer. I just posted the following sections from the manual for another problem:

According to the Crane's Troubleshooting section:
The power light is green but there is no mist being emitted:
- Check that there is water in the tank.
- Check for possible lime deposits on the water level sensor or the nebulizer.
- Make sure that nothing blocks the vapor output slots.
- Check that the fan vent on bottom of humidifier is not blocked.
- Empty the humidifier and rinse the water basin with cool tap water and allow to dry for 15 to 30 min.

Humidifier power light is staying red and not turning green. Or, Humidifier is working then stops:
- Ensure that water level sensor is assembled properly. (I scanned a page from the manual that shows how to dismantle and reassemble the sensor: here)
- Clean water float.
- Call service center and request replacement water float.

Barring that, here is the service center contact info:
