Likely the drain is clogged with hair. Most of these type of plugs will have a screw in the middle underneath the top plate that you will have to undo. Let me know if you need anything else.

My haier front loader was working today then stopped and said error 5 it's model is a hwm1070kFL


The Haier hwm1070kFL error 5 indicates a problem with the incoming water. Either the water pressure is low, any filters in the inlet system are clogged or the water is draining out of the unit (pump malfunction or suction from the drain hose being below the water level in the washer).

The first thing to check is the incoming water pressure. Turn off the valves for the incoming water. Then disconnect the hose from both the washer and the pipe. Check any filters. Reconnect the hose to the pipe and place a bucket below the hose. Turn on the water valve and check the flow rate. (You may want to replace the hose while you have it disconnected. Many modern hoses are designed to seal themselves if they detect leakage. This will stop or reduce the flow of water through the hose.)

Next make sure that the drain hose outlet is 80-100 cm (~32-40 inches) from the floor.

If these steps do not help, you need to check the inlet valve, the pressure sensor and make sure that the drain pump is not moving the water out of the washer during a fill cycle. These may be steps for a service technician.

I hope this helps.

(I live in an area with a rural water district. It isn't uncommon for the water pressure to drop due to problems in the system. Until the maintenance person can find and fix the leak or pump issue, a washer with sensor like this that detects how long it takes to fill the tub will give the low flow error and stop working.)

Toilet bubbles when tub drains could be from stuck toy in tub overflow?


The bubbling sounds like it's trying to get the air it needs to drain. Kind of like holding your finger over thr the top of a drinking straw and then lifting it out of the water. The water won't drain out until you lift your finger off the straw, allowing air to come in so the water can drain out. If the vent is clogged it could cause this. Squirrels dropped walnuts down mine and clogged it. The vent is the pipe that goes up through the roof, nearest to the toilet and shower. If the shower drain vent line is clogged it is possible that it could be sucking the air it needs through the toilet, sometimes actualling pulling the water out of the toilet. This is not very common but it can happen. If you can get on the roof and get a garden hose into the vent line(s), you can tell if it is clogged because water won't drain, it will come back out. You should be able to turn the water on full blast and it will drain normally if the vent is clear. It's possible that there is a connection between the toys and your problem, and the way you access that drain line is usually thru the wall on the opposite side of the shower controls/drain. I would start by running water down the vent lines on the roof. Good luck.

Water does not flow through the drain


hello,
~Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose.
~Check pump impeller for damage
~Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out Make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle.
~Check timer for not letting the dishwasher pause.
~If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, check knock-out plug at connection.
~Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.
~Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off. (if yes, replace the inlet valve).
thanks

    My washer stopped during the spin cycle. Now I can get it to fill with water But aggitate and spin it just makes a noise and the tumbler is locked up tight


    Your shaft coupler / motor coupler has likely broke. Not too hard to fix yourself, but you will have to remove the water from the washer first.

    Remove the clothes, place them in the bathtub. Roll a garden hose from the washer to outside where drain water won't matter. Tape the garden hose to the drain hose, and lower the drain hose to the floor. Water will flow through the garden hose outside. Turn the washer over, follow directions supplied with new part, and replace the motor coupling. When finished, reorient the washer, remove the garden hose, place drain hose in the drain stand pipe. Run the washer through a couple of full cycles, then rewash the clothing.

    No running water from my shower


    Check water lines to shower and make sure that there is no blockage or water cut off to it. Valve itself could be bad also or blockage inside it.

    I f it is a tub & shower unit the diverter may be bad or stuck in place restricting water flow. Some are push button on the valve or a pull unit on tub spout to send water to shower head.
    Cut water off and remove to inspect for reason not functioning correctly.
    Remove shower head to inspect for blockage. The srceen may be stopped up for the shower head. Remove turn water on and see if any flow comes out shower arm.

    My bathtub drain leaks. Is there a product to


    No, not without sealing, I mean clogging, the drain. Do you know exactly where the leak is coming from? I would suspect that the water is getting around the drain, instead of down the drain. The visible part of the drain should unscrew from the part that is underneath. That bottom part is likely permanently sealed to your drain plumbing.
    You may be able to easily fix your leak by:
    #1 Unscrewing the visible drain top.
    #2 Replacing the washer under that top. This will seal your tub to your drain. All water will then be forced to flow down the drain properly.
    #3 Screw the top of your drain back into place WITHOUT folding or wrinkling the new washer.
    Good luck

    Kohler bathtub drain seems to be disconnected from control lever. This is the type with the "in bathtub stopper" that raises up and down to let water flow out. The stopper does not move up and down as it...


    Okay, remove 2 phillips head screws at lever handle/overflow.

    Pull firmly with much effort and bowing the connecting rod a bit.

    Up will come a heavy duty spring on the end of the rod.(prolly a big slimly hair ball too!)

    Hope you get the spring, cause that's what works the drain stop.

    If spring doesn't come out you'll have to "fish" it out.

    Clean everything up real good and flush drain good also now.

    The "Secret" now is to put the Lever,rod and spring assembly back in and replace screws and get the lever flipped to the left BEFORE you put the Drain Stop in.
