Question about Waterway Twm Above Ground Pool Pump and Sand Filter System No 520 1610

1 Answer

I don't know what's happening - the pump & filter seem to be set up properly but when I take the lid off the filter to dump the basket, water comes gushing out of it and doesn't stop. The filter is currently on 'backwash" and if I try to change it, it starts gushing water (on all settings except "backwash") ? It's like the pool water is not being stopped somewhere...I just don't know what to do?? When I turn the pump on it appears that it's pushing dirty water BACK into the pool, but like I said, it LOOKS like everything is set up properly?? HELP!

It definitely sounds like your pool filters not set up correctly. Here is a copy of the users manual. Try taking a look at the detailed drawing. It sounds like your valve might not be set up correctly so pay special attention to that area of your filter.

Closed and opened shut off valve to strainer housing basket, no water in strainer, how do you know if shut off knob actually opened or just broke the knob?


if the basket fills with water once you open the strainer lid then the valve is opening properly. If you open the valve and the strainer lid but you see no water flowing in then you can believe that the valve is not opening and needs to be fixed or replaced.

The motor and filter seem to be ok, but can't get it to prime. Everything is working,just very little water pumping into filter.


It sounds like you have a suction leak or a clogged impeller. A quick way to check the impeller is to fill the pump pot (where the basket is) with water, then start the pump with the lid OFF. The water should be sucked down into the pump immediately. Turn the pump off. If it took more than about half a second for the water to disappear you need to open the pump and clear the debris from the impeller.
Otherwise any leak from the skimmer to the pump will cause the problem. Make sure your pump lid o-ring is lubricated.

Sounds like you don't have the pump lid "0" ring seated properly under the lid, or there is dirt or leaves on the "0" ring. This has to seal perfectly or the pump will not pump much if any water.

Pressure at about 10psi then drops to zero then back then drops to zero again. Sputter flow of water. Filters and filter baskets have been cleaned.


Try replacing or lubricating the seal on the basket lid. Pool pumps rely on a completely sealed system to work properly. If there is any air getting into the system on the suction side the pump will surge.

Water not filtering quick enough, basket overflows


Make sure your sprayhead is the proper one (5 hole) and in good shape. Also make sure that the hole on your filter basket has not been partially closed. This can happen if you set it on the hot warmer. As a last resort, you can slightly enlarge the hole in your filter basket.

Cuisinart Grind and Brew will not emply all the water


The two most common reasons for overflow or underflow have to do with the carafe lid and the filter basket - they key to smooth flow with this coffee maker is making sure the filter basket and carafe lid are making the proper contact with each other so that the center knob on the carafe lid pushes slightly up on the filter basket spring. Make sure the carafe lid is completely closed. Make sure the filter basket is pushed all the way down. Make sure you are not using the gold tone filter and a paper filter at the same time. For some reason, I get better results when the handle of the carafe is resting against the right side wall. If everything is in place, I would suspect a problem with either the filter basket being clogged or some problem with the carafe lid - call Cuisinart as they should be able to order these parts for you.

My coffee maker, Cuisinart dcc 1400 only boils water, does not make coffee. It is one week old. I have a water filter in the plastic filter holder filled with coffee.

Water not coming out of filter basket


Make sure the lid is on the coffee pot or the brew basket will be stuck in the closed position. If the lid is definitely on, replace the brew basket, because the spring may be faulty.

How to Clean Pump Strainer basket


Turn the swimming pool pump off and wait for the water to drain from the strainer basket. You want to make sure that the pump is completely off before you proceed. Remove the screws or any items securing the lid of the strainer basket. Open the lid and pull out the strainer basket. Vacuum the strainer basket or scoop out any debris. You may want to run clear water through the basket to ensure you removed all debris. Feel toward the impeller and remove any clogs or obstructions preventing the impeller from working properly. Check the o-ring under the cover of the pump strainer housing. You may need to use a silicon lubricant to ensure a water-tight seal. Put the strainer basket back into the pump strainer housing and pour some water into the basket. Replace the lid and secure it in place. Turn the swimming pool pump on and check for proper pressure. If your pressure doesn't register, you may need to troubleshoot to find the problem.
