its either air or blockage

start by cleaning your cartidge with blasting of a garden hose.
spread the individual folds

now take the hose off from the front of the motor
there is a molded plastic screen where the hose slips on
It can get plugged with hair and debris from skimming or not useing the silk basket with the vacuum

check plungers if you have them

now put it all back together

open only top bleeder a few turns on top of cartridge houseing
open bleeder a few turns at motor if your model has one
now open first your outlet side higher one
when water comes out the bleeder open the inlet side high one

now run filter for 30 seconds then close bleeders

Should be good to go

Did you check the oil? The low oil sensor will disable the ignition if more than a quart low. Check oil often.

Error code NF? what does that mean?


Thanks for using FixYa. Error NF means No Fill. The washer has tried to fill but was unsuccessful. NF indicates No Flow. There is something that is interrupting the inbound flow of water to the washer, either hot or cold. Sometimes this happens when water service in the area is interrupted, creating an air pocket that causing the water valve not to sense water.

Try running the diagnostic test by—
  • Press the delicates and heavy soil keys together for 3 seconds.
  • You are in the service mode.
  • Now, press wrinkle free key, cold water should start entering.
  • Then, press the cotton sturdy and hot water should flow.
  • To exit the test mode, either unplug the machine or press the delicate and heavy soil again for 3 seconds.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

I have a 2001 YTH 1542 XP riding lawnmower. I have been tryin for months to find a Ground Drive belt to fit it. I have ordered 4 different belts that say theyll fit my mower but so far Ive got 4 belts from...

U most certainly do. Surely you have the old belt so you can measure the diameter of the belt and describe it as a flat belt, round belt, etc. Then what you must do is using a string wrap it around the pulleys involved to get the length of belt. Subtract about an inch or so and order that size.

Did you also try contacting the manufacturer of your unit for the info you are requesting? Did you google for the info?

My Noritz 6.9 flashes a 90 code. I was told by Noritz that this code relates to air flow.. and that the unit needs to be cleaned/serviced. Is this something I can do myself? If so, how do I do it? If...

I recently started getting an error 90 on my N69-M unit. I finally got a hold of someone at Noritz tech support and they state this error is a general combustion/exhaust/air flow error. Here is what they suggested to look at.
Gas Pressure – The unit has a minimum flow rate for the incoming gas and if the system is gas starved, then you have some sort of obstruction or restriction. If this is a new install and you are getting an error 90, this is likely your problem but if this is an existing install that suddenly started getting this error, unless someone was monkeying around with any values you might have in-line, this probably isn’t your problem.
Air Flow – This is a ventilation issues caused by the build-up of dust, lint, etc that chokes the flow of cool air to the unit and causes the burner to overheat. If your unit runs for a while and then pops an error 90, this is probably your problem. They told me they get a lot of these errors when the unit is installed in close proximity to a clothes dryer, which makes sense. To resolve this, remove the front panel and blow out the intake holes and slots (I tried to shop-vac mine before blowing them out and I was amazed at how much the vacuum didn’t remove). After removing the cover, the first thing you should see is a system board that is covered by a black dust shield. The board is held to the unit by 3 screws (one on the top left and two at the bottom). Remove the screws and let the board dangle by the wires plugged in it. You should now be staring at the fan assembly. They suggested that I either remove the whole unit and clean it out or use compressed air to blow it out. I went with the compressed air route because getting the fan assembly out requires removing and eventually reinstalling 2 relatively small screws way in the back of the unit that you have no real easy way to get to. Blow/clean the fan out and then blow out everything else inside the unit. Reassemble and you are good to go, provided this is your problem.
Exhaust – You might see an error 90 if the exhaust can’t freely flow. Two things can cause an exhaust issue to throw this error. One is that the flapper valve on the outlet of the system sometimes gets stuck closed. This should be easy enough to fix. The other is an obstruction in your exhaust ducting or using too small of a diameter duct to exhaust the unit.
Hope this was somewhat helpful and prevents you from having to wait on hold forever for Noritz support or having to pay someone to fix your problem.

F H error code

If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering
machine, the valves will be turned off and the error code will be
displayed. OR If the control has turned the water valves on and after
8 minutes the flow sensor has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing
through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will
be turned off and the error code will flash.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
to fix=
If there is no water in the unit:
—Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned
on all the way.
—Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in
the inlet valves.
—Verify inlet valve operation.
■ If there is water in the unit:
—Verify drain pump operation.
—Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good condition and
properly connected to tub and pressure switch.
1. Verify there is not a siphon problem.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Verify wire harness connections to inlet valves,
pressure switch, drain pump, flow meter, and
Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check all hoses for possible leaks.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power
6. Verify pressure switch operation.
7. Verify flow meter operation by blowing air through the part and
measuring the resistance.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any cycle.
