Shut off the hot and cold water.disconnect the water line from the washer and stick them in the washer,turn the water back on,make sure you have someone hold the lines so when the water is on the hoses don't spray all over the place from the pressure in the lines,if no water comes out you have a bad home water valve and need to change it out,if water comes out check the valve where the water lines connect to on the back of the washer,if there are screens inside the opening on the valve pull them out and clean them or you'll have to change the valve didn't send the model number so i don't know what kind of machine you have,if it's a newer washer you could have problems with the electronics or something else,also i've seen water lines with pressure valves in them,if you have this change them out to regular burst proof hoses.good luck

Those machines use the incoming water temp to start and then boost it, so check the incoming water temp. If it is too low then you need to increase it. It could be the heater that is not working but you need to check the incoming water temp first.

New tankless bosch unit, luke warm h20, gas line 1 inch direct to tankless, gas company came and gas psi ok. Plumber said we can not adjust the gas pressure above 5.5 inches of water at the meter. hel

1) Add tempering tank to preheat incoming cold water.

2) Read product manual or call Bosch to make sure unit works with pre-heated incoming water. Some incoming water sensors will not trigger combustion is incoming water exceeds certain limit.

2a) Read product manual for required yearly/monthy maintenance.
Train wife to delime tankless yearly.

3) Install bigger gas meter.

4) Solve entire moneypit problem today for $325

5) Don't install tankless unless you have a lot of money and time for headaches.
Don't believe promotional literature. Tankless promotion is BS for average do-it-yourself folks who want to save a buck on water heating. Estimated yearly saving of $100 means Tankless do not save money long term. All costs are energy: Purchase price and installation negates several years saving up front. One repair will negate another 5-8 years energy savings. By then you need new unit.

No water in the humidifier (General 1042L). What's wrong? Thanks

I would first check to make sure you have water to incoming side of the solenoid valve. Most inlet and outlet fitting are compression type so you can carefully loosen nut on incoming side to see if you have water there.You don't want to take the nut off just back it off a liitle to see if you have pressure there.If so then retighten nut on incoming side and loosen nut on leaving side. Turn up thermostat to actuate solenoid valve.You should be able to hear a slight click when the valve opens.
If you have water on incoming side and you can tell that valve is working but you are not getting water flow then shut off water supply to humidifier and remove inlet nut and and slip pipe back to see if there is a blockage there. Clean as needed or replace solenoid if it's not working.If you have flow into unit but not out then check outlet side for blockage. I hope this helps . Thank you.

Hobart lx 18 warewasher what hatco booster heater product compatable with it

The answer to this question will be based on the incoming water temperature that is supplied to the booster heater. The standard sizing for a booster heater is based off of a 40 degree F rise (140 degree F incoming water temperature) or a 70 degree F rise (110 degree F incoming water temperature). For a 40 degree F rise, a Hatco model C-5, S-5, or PMG-60 will supply the needed amount of rinse water for the LX-18 Hobart dishwasher. A 70 degree F rise would require a Hatco model C-9, S-9, or PMG-60 to supply the same Hobart model number.
