Setting our machine on warm , but the water s hot , both hot & cold taps are fully turned on .


Check your hot/cold inlet valve and solenoid. It sounds like your cold water side of the valve is stuck shut. The valve is found by following the inlet hose right to it. Also, do you have a domestic well as water supply? Sometimes fine sand from a domestic well will plug the valve screen. It is also possible that other mineral would plug the screen. These things would happen gradually, though, not all at once.

How do i repair bellera #r560vs kitchen faucet reduced/low cold water flow have installed newfaucet valve


Turn off the hot & cold water supply lines at the shut-off valves.

Yo need to use the correct replacement cartridge for the faucet you are fixing

The cartridge replacement procedure requires using food grade silicone lubricant around the base of the new cartridge and around the threads of the bonnet.

Then you must properly align the 2 bumps on the bottom of the cartridge with the inside body of the faucet.

Insert and tighten down the bonnet that holds the cartridge in place to where it is snug- do not over tighten the bonnet!

Then reinstall the trim piece and lever.

Slowly, fully open the hot and cold water shut-offs and check for leaks at the shut offs, sink handle, and spout.

If you are using the Watts brand floodsafe supply lines, turn the hot and cold water shut-offs, on slowly. Rapid flow and pressure may activate the floodsafe valve within the supply line, causing little to no water flow to the faucet.

Washer gw712 diagnostic lights3rd from left and forth from left on and last on right


That is fault code 49
49. (00110001) Cold Valve or Cold Valve & Hot Valve Faulty
The Motor Control Module has measured a voltage from the valve diagnostic circuit that
indicates the cold valve or both the cold and hot valve is faulty. The most likely cause is
that the valve harness has not been connected correctly or the valve(s) is open circuit.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: Check the valve harnesses are correctly fastened to the valves and
the motor control module or the pins are not bent backwards.
Secondary Source: Water Valves.
Action: Measure the resistance of the cold and hot valve coils.
Tertiary Source: Motor Control module.
Action: Replace the Motor Control module.

The cold water tap will not completely shut off. With the handle off the cold water slows down but does not shut off. When installed I turned the valve in the direction of instructions before installing...


Not positive about the model you have, but some faucet handles can be put on when the valve is not in the correct position.
Try taking the handle back off, turn it slightly clockwise, and re-install it.
Hopefully this will do the trick.
Good Luck!

I have a Reliance Sta-Kleen 805 Electric Water Heater that is leaking from the cold valve but the water is coming out hot. How do I repair it?


If I understand correctly you have residential electric water heater, and your shut off valve located above water heater on cold-water line is leaking?

1) Hot water would come out of this valve if it's leaking because water inside tank is hot and under pressure ... also remember, hot water rises so tank is probably heating the water inside the cold line during hours when no hot water is being used.

2) You probably need to replace the valve. But if water is leaking because a pipe is rusted, the valve may be ok, and just the pipe needs to be replaced.
Take a photo of your problem to hardware store or home center.
I used to work in those stores and could help folks get the right parts.

3) Here are some steps for replacing the valve.
Shut off main water source into house. This is usually located underground in same box where meter-reader looks at meter.
Your water heater shut off valve is called a gate valve, and it will be 3/4"
All water heater pipes are 3/4"
You will need two 10-12" pipe wrenches, maybe a new gate valve, maybe a new flex connector, probably short 3/4 pipe pieces, teflon tape for each threaded pipe.
Hardware store or home center can get you the right materials, just take a photo over to hardware store

4) When you get started, turn off water heater circuit breaker for a couple hours so water will cool down. You don't want to get scalded with hot water.
Do NOT drain the tank.
Simply open a bathtub faucet on hot side to release pressure.
When finished, turn on the water, and make sure water is flowing out of tub spout in full stream before turning circuit breaker ON

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on water heater or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

The hot water not flowing into the washer and the cold water flows fine?


Let's think and work this one thru:

Your machine probably has several temperature settings, right?

So-- when you set it for COLD-- it fills at the normal rate?

When you set it for WARM-- does only COLD water still only come in?

And if you set it for HOT-- Nothing comes in?-- correct?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now lets get to the pipes in the back:
Is there a Laundry sink, or a hose or something nearby, so you can be sure you have HOT water to the Washing Machine?-- Is the Hot water flowing good and strong nearby the WASHING MACHINE-- WHEN YOU TEST IT?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And the Valve is not shut at the Washing machine-- (Hot shut, but cold open?)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you are sure that you have a good supply of HOT water to the machine,--- If you have tested that you actually have a good flow, -- say with the Hose removed, and you run the Hot water into the machine (by-passing the internal control valve!!)--
Then it sounds like: Either the control is not telling the internal solenoid valve to open-- or the valve needs to be replaced.

Do you want to attempt this repair-- or do you want to call for help at this point?

Let me know what you find-- and how far you want to go by yourself.

We have a Moen tub/shower faucet and when turned to the hot water position no water comes out at all. We feel like this is an issue with the valve but aren't sure how to replace it.


the valve has a cartridge that controls hot and cold water mixing. 21-t2opdcnl._sl500_aa300_.jpg the valve at one time had a smaller spindle built into the valve to prevent scolding. this item is located in the right hand side of the valve behind the plate next to the cold shut off valve. there is also a hot shut off valve located on the right hand side of the valve. Most times it is the cartridge itself and this can be found at all hardware stores.
here is a link that shows ALL THE TUB/ SHOWER VALVES PARTS.

Hope this helps.

As you look at your valve on the right you will see a large screw fitting.inside this fitting is a temp/ pressure balance spool. it has failed for some reason and needs to be replaced. On both sides of the valve are 2 smaller screws. these are the water shut off valves. turn off the water and remove the larger screw fitting. remove spool and replace. Hope this helps.
