All works as expected, except the water does not start to flow. I replaced both of the solenoids about 3 months ago

    Yes, checked the meshes, I just got into diagnostic mode, and through pressing switches proved that the hot and cold water works, as well as the pump. I dont have the diagnostic codes as it is an Australian machine...doesnt ship with codes. Any help would be appreciated. The machine turns boots as normal, then when the Start switch is pressed it beeps once, but no water starts to flow.

    Thanks for your help. I fixed it.

    The machine has a magnetic lid closed sensing switch which was not functioning. I hard wired the switch out of the equation, and hey presto....functional.

    I am not familiar with your particular model but I have had problems with my locking lid switch getting stuck and not allowing it to start up. adjusting the lid switch solved the problem have you checked the lid lock by trying to open after you press start? my machine has two locks one on each side.

    Have you checked the wire mesh filters at the hose connections on the machine itself?

My machine acted as normal, and beeped when the start button was pressed, but wouldnt start. I ended up hard wiring the lid magnetic sensor (on the right side top of the machine) by taking off the two screw plugs at the top front of the machine, and cutting the wires before the magnetic sensor, then joining them.

I have a lime.stoppage in the washing.machine or hose, where do I start? It is not.the.wall faucet. I tested it.

check/ replace the inlet solenoid valve unit in the machine
if it is faulty or not getting power then the water will not flow into the machine.
simple test is to change the hot water hose to the cold water tap and use hot water setting with the cold water tap on
if the water flows then it is the cold water solenoid

How much water gal/hr is reasonable to expect from the furnace humidifier overflow in "0 degree" farenheit outside to heat a 1500 square foot normal midwestern house to 72 degrees inside having a norm

There is no flow rating because it would depend on too many factors. What you do need to check is the float valve. The water valve is opening and closing like it should be but the reservoir is filling too much.

No water flow through solenoid

The water flow through the humidifier is limited/controlled by an orifice. This small opening can easily clog. After disassembly use a small wire to clear the debris trapped in the small hole,

Hope this helps?

My Whirlpool GS6SHEXNS00 is not dispensing water from the door. The ice maker continues to work so there is water getting into the refrigerator. This problem started about 4 days ago, after one day of...

I am assuming if the resevoir is thawed. Probably the solenoid valve for the water has failed. The ice maker uses a separate solenoid valve. You can get solenoids on line. I believe your model comes with a dual solenoid assembly so both are replaced at the same time. Do not mix up the connections, the water flow rates are different.

Good Luck,

No heat blows air ac works

2 possibilities. 1 - the heater system isnt getting adequate hot water flow from the engine and not heating the air for your heater to function. This can be due to a defective heater control water valve, a plugged heater core, a disconnected or plugged heater hose.
2 - the system is in fact getting heat, but your heat is bypassed/lost due to dashboard vent and blend door errors breakage common with that era of jeep. have the valve/cor/heater hose flow checked. If that doesnt show issues, have the vent control system checked for blend door or dash door breakage. beware, its alot of labor to change the dash solenoids when they brake, ALOT of labopr (6 hours or more!) so if you are committed to fixing it because a solenoid and/or sensor broke in there, I highly recommend you chaneg ALL solenoids wuith new rather than risk another breaking in a month and the 6 hours of labor must be repeated.

The water dispenser will only work part of the time.

Ok, there is a water valve assembly(dual), that has solenoid functions that feed the ice maker and water dispenser as well. this valve is damaged and you will need ot replace it asap if possible.

The replacement of this dysfunctional water valve assembly will fix your issue.

I bought this dishwasher 5 years ago and was kept in the box until last month. I installed it, turned on the water and no water is being pumped into the unit from the water release valve in the dishwasher....

You will have to check all the connections visually. Since you know how to use a meter, see where the current stops. See if there is current coming from the control board to the pump. the water inlet solenoid valve should "free flow" water into the machine. the pump recirculates the water for the wash and rinse cycles and pumps the water out of the machine to the drain. It is more likely that that water inlet solenoid valve is where the problem is.

have you tried adjusting the feet on the front of the washer so it is tilted back slightly .This will stop the water from coming over the little lip on the front of the machine. Some dishwashers also use a little amount of water in the bottom when drying asthis helps to curculate the heat ; leave the washer to complete it's cycle and it should beep to let you know when it is finished
