91 Geo Trackerauto 4x4 3spd.It wasnt shifting into 2 until it had warmed up.A thread said try AT-205 tried ran perfect for one week. blew front seal. is the whole tranny bad or just the vacuum module


yes those chem, melt seals. and do that.
the front seal has nothing to do with the rear vacuum
modulators, that love to leak, outs to the hose, and make engine smoke or leak to inside (unseen) and upset shifting .
the transmission needs service
the correct name for it is the 3L30. (old TH180 that started back in
1969-1975 Opel Olympia / Kadet)
the 3L30 has a special rear flange for 4wd. and special rear shaft.
any major transhop can in fact overhaul any TH180 based transmission.

My machine seems to be stuck on a drain cycle


Sounds like your 'anti flood' system is activated. This happens when a leak fills the drip tray on the base of the machine, and a anti flood float switch senses water in the tray. Leaks can come from several sources - loose pipes, leaking door gaskets - even opening the door while the machine is hot! i.e. to add an extra item after the machine has started, for example. ISOLATE THE POWER and examine the base tray, if its a free standing machine tip the machine back at an angle (The Hemlich manoeuvre for Dishwashers lol) and the water will flood out - if built in, remove the lower front panel. Once the water is removed, the machine should start - but if the problem occurs, the leak is still there. Zanussi machines are tricky - you'll probably need an engineer to sort it out - expect not much change out of £100. Cheers!

Motor runs with door open. No water in pan.


Sounds to me like there may be water in the moisture sensor. Your dishwasher is probably leaking and the noise you hear is the drain pump activated.

How To reset EFO code


Hi. EF0 is suggesting an internal leak which operates a float switch inside the cabinet at the base. It could be a leak (split door seal, hose, etc) or over-foaming causing a momentary leak. Dry the base and inspect. A blocked condenser on the dryer can cause the drum to overfill on wash. I have also witnessed the code come up when the drain pump is jammed..odd as this should be E20. If it drains ok ignore that!.

PUMP KEEPS RUNNING


Some modules have a flood safety in the base, if you have a leak (leaky valve, hole in door gasket etc) the base pan has a disc that floats and operate a microswitch and all the machine will do is pump ( you mat get a fault code displayed or flashing lights). Pull the machine forward on to large towel and tip it forward (pull from the back so it is sitting only on its front feet) if water seeps from underneath this will be the problem. If this is the case, you may find that the machine will start to work again, you will have to trace the leak or the float will just activate when the base pan fills again. Hope this helps, if you need any further assistance please add comment.

Electrolux dishwasher ESF6242, 911 236 182. Before the program was complete, the drain pump went into constant operation and the Error code i30 flashes, denoting 'water in the base' according to...


Hi
You have had a water overflow or leak which has triggered your flood switch. You need to disconnect the machine and pull it out. Throw plenty of towls on the floor and tilt machine back to empty the water from the base.
Hard to say where the overflow or leak is from. You need to reconnect machine while it is out of cabinet and run the machine to see if you can pin point a leak. Sometimes a burst drain hose.
Otherwise the front and side panels may need to be removed as the leak may be internal.
Other time a faulty PCB, faulty inlet solenoid which sticks or a faulty pressure switch or clogged pressure hose are the reasons for machine overflowing. Bad door seals can also cause machine to leak.
Therefore, there are a raft of items which can cause machine to overflow or leak.

Water Leaking


Dear Customer,
The likely reasons for a leaking AC are...
1) Improperly installed.
A window air conditioner must be slightly lower at the rear than the front. This allows the water being removed from the room to drain to the back of the machine. A difference of one inch is sufficient. This is always the first thing to check. Many are improperly installed in the haste to get relief from the heat. If installed too low at front the water will flow into the room rather than outside. If installed too low at rear, water can roll out front edges before has chance to exit towards rear drain.


  1. Icing up.
    Water being de-humidified can turn to ice if there are problems with the cooling system. There are many reasons for an air conditioner to produce ice. Remove front grille while machine is operating. If ice is present on the cooling coil you will probably need service. For more information see our other article: Why window Air Conditioners Ice up.


  1. Air leakage around air conditioner.
    If warm air is able to enter around the air conditioner it will encounter cooler, dryer air. When they meet condensation will occur. If water leaking from front of air conditioner inspect to see if dripping from body of machine, or water droplets clinging to front area. To test, operate machine for 30 minutes and then use flashlight to check under front edge of base. Small water droplets here indicate an air leakage problem. Add foam insulation to stop warm air from infiltrating.


  1. Drain hole blocked.
    Rear of air conditioner base has a drain hole or groove to allow water to escape. If becomes blocked water can back up. To test, operate machine for 30 minutes and then inspect if draining properly. If appears blocked use a small piece of wood to open drain hole at rear of metal base. CAUTION: Never be tempted to drill holes into the air conditioner body to relieve water pooling. Severe damage can result.


  1. Internal drains blocked.
    There are small passageways that allow water to drain from front of air conditioner to the rear. If they become blocked water will pool at front of machine and overflow onto floor. If this happens the air conditioner will require removal from window and servicing.


  1. Outside temperature too cold.
    This occurs at end of cooling season. If outside temperatures drops below 60 degrees Fahrenheit at night the cooling coil may ice up. If no leakage at bedtime but water in front of machine in morning, suspect this problem. If this problem suspected turn off machine before bedtime and restart as day warms. Alternately, operate machine at night with selector switch in ‘fan only’ position. This will circulate room air during night but not allow cooling.
Hope u find this useful. I'll be thankful if u could rate this. thank you.

WATER COMING OUT FROM DOOR AND DRAWER


On this washer  the seal was replaced ?Did it stop leaking after the seal was put in ? Front load hatch on this is in front area located on the bottom(base).Remove the front  to gain access and you can now reach the pump and  look for any blockage.After  you have found and removed the blockage,run the washer again and if any water leaks remain call your local  servicer .You may have a bad front boot (seal) or its just loosened and it need to be re- tightened.Any water leak should be repaired ASAP so you dont have even more damage to the machine and your home.If the repairman cant stop the leak on his first visit than have the Boot replaced on his second visit.

Bosch dish washer SGS56E02GB


anti flood device has been activated, this means you have water in the base of appliance. most likely a leak, or if you have been using 3 in 1 tablets, and rinse aid this will over foam appliance and foams leaks into base.. try tipping d/w back to let water out of base..then try d/w again... if anti flood activates again...call an engineer.. ps check big nut that secures salt container to base of d/w, it can come loose which will cause water to leak into base ally
