Make sure the gasket is in place and do not cross thread the lid ring.

    Close the valves to the suction and the return sides before unscrewing lid this will prevent the water from running out.

I replaced CVA-24 when I turn on pool filter no water being pulled water being pulled through to pump

Your pump has probably lost its prime. This is either because it got too much air or not enough water. Try priming. This should make your pump start working again. Any time pool pumps have to be services, they need to be re-primed. In case you are not sure how, remove the pot lid and fill the pot with water. Re-add and clamp the pot lid. Open the air release valve on the filter and stand clear. Turn on switch or time clock. When water comes out of the air release valve, close the valve. If it is a two speed pump, make sure it is on high speed.

Just replaced my Emerson 2hp pool motor. Turned on new motor all is working fine but water isn't filling the basket?

First of all you need to fill the pot with water. it is best to pour a bucket in or use a hose and turn the pump on and off real quick a couple times to **** some water into the pump. Once you do that fill the basket as much as possible and quickly put the lid on and turn on (make sure your lid o-ring is there and in good shape. lubricate it with pool lube so it's wet but not all gooped up). when you turn the pump on you should see water either splash, or at least start trickling into the pot. if you see water splash in, but then go dry again, or if it just trickles but doesn't prime after about 20 or 30 seconds, then you may very likely have an air leak on the suction side. Make sure your lid is sealed, the pipe goin into pump is not loose or leaking air, and make sure the pool cleaner hose is not out of the water, or the skimmer sucking air. If the pipe coming into the pump is sucking air or you suspect it might be try wrapping black electrical tape tightly all around the joint (where it threads into the pump). This is temporary troubleshooting step but works great. If there is a union or a Jandy valve where the pipe comes into the pump check o-rings and all joints for leaks.

My kenmore won't pump out the water. what could

couple of possible reasons and this will vary by brand of machine...lid switch could be bad...some machines will wash or agitate with lid up but will not spin unless lid is closed..others will not do nothing with lid up....some brands will not spin if the water level switch can detect water in the tub...this means your machine didnt pump the water out of the machine so it could spin couple of reasons for this 1 bad pump or bad pump motor(some machines have a pump that is driven by a drifferent motor than the one that drives the transmission)usually these machines use the water level switch to activate(turn on/off) the pump when the machine goes into spin cycle... some machines the pump wil come on and stay on for the entire spin cycle...some machines the belt will be bad and you just need a new belt....first thing to do is see if raising the lid will turn the machine off when it is in wash cycle if it does not..then it will in spin cycle..if the machine will not work in spin cycle the lid switch will be the reason why..

Water doesnt drain

hi friend,

  1. Step 1 Check and make sure that the washer is plugged in. I know that sounds stupid, but washers move and it has happened before.
  2. Step 2 Check and see if the washer works during the rinse cycle. if the motor moves then skip to step 3 If the motor does not turn then you need to test the power outlet. use a small hand held appliance like a hand mixer to make sure the outlet has power. If the outlet has no power you need to check your breakers. If the outlet has power you need to call a repairman for your washer.
  3. Step 3 Good news because your washer works on the rinse cycle your problem may not be that severe. First check to make sure your lid switch is working. The lid switch is a safety device that ensures that the lid is closed before the machine will begin the spin cycle. to check the lid switch simply close and open the lid several times. each time you close the lid you should here a distinctive click. if there is no click then you need to replace the lid switch. if the is a click continue to step 4
  4. Step 4 Ok you have power and you lid switch is working that means you have one of two things going on. 1. you have clog in the line or 2. your pump is burnt out. To check for a clog start at the back of the washer and remove the drain hose. Be ready for water! It may come pouring out. if water does come pouring out then you need to check the drain hose for a clog. If there is no clog in the drain hose then you have a bad pump and it will have to be replaced. If water does not come out when you remove the drain hose then you have a clog. the clog is either in the pump or in the upper hose that runs from the tank to pump.
Tips & Warnings
  • make sure to unplug the washer before disassembling. water and electricity don't play well together

Kenmore Oasis - Lid Locked Shut and No Power

take your outlet pipe and place into a bucket so that it is low to the ground if water comes out then it could be that your pump is faulty when the water has all drained away the pressure switch will reset itself and the lid will now open if no water comes out un-clamp your outlet pipe from your pump if then water comes out then your pipe will be blocked m8
