Frigidaire water dispenser won't work with new filter


The dispenser has a dual water control valves that control ice maker water and dispenser water. To find your parts you will need your refrigerators model number most time found around the fresh food sections door. Below I have a tutorial that may help you determine what may be the problem with dispensing water. Hope this helps, Thanks Sea Breeze

Washing machine won't pump out to go into spin cycle is there a strainer that needs cleaning


This is almost certainly a simple problem with your empty pump filter being clogged. The empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum. While it's trying to get the water evacuated, you will probably see the machine doing a slow tumble for up to 8 minutes and you may also hear the empty pump running too.
You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model (not familiar which with the model you mention) there is probably a round filter cap on the front of the machine at the bottom (It may be behind a small door or hidden behind a clip on panel on the bottom) Many models of this design also have a small hose to the right of the filter cap that you can pull out, remove a plug from and drain off any water in the filter before you remove the filter and get your floor wet, so take a look for this before you remove the filter and get soaked.

Wash cycle stops and light on the extra dirty symbol lights up


This is might be the drain filter. When the drain filter is clogged, the machine won't empty itself of water.

Candy has a troubleshooting webpage that lists many possible problems/solutions:

http://service.candy-domestic.co.uk/fault-finder/FaultFinder.aspx?Section=11

If you do try to check the filter, keep in mind that opening the drain filter will yield gallons of water on your floor, especially if your machine does not have the drain hose next to the filter opening. You'll need to have some way of transferring the water ready before opening the filter.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

Kenmore washer model111, will fill, agitate but won't drain? i am assuming that it is the water pump, but why would it fill up???

Not sure about your question "Why would it fill up" Why wouldn't it fill up? Like walking through an entry barrier and then discovering the exit is locked, at the time you go in, you don't know you can

After wash cycle, tube will not drain water?


Probably a blocked empty pump filter. Spin won't kick in until all the water is evacuated. If there is a little left, the machine will do the slow turn cycle that it does just before spin starts but not start the spin cycle because of the water in the drum.

You need to locate the filter and clean it. That should fix your problem. Once this is done, remember to keep the filter clean every few months.

I have been unable to remove the wter filter. I have tried to turn it 1/4 of an inch clockwise as described in the owners manual but the filter won't budge. any suggestions?


OK maybe try 1/4 inch counterclockwise and pull down. Here is what the service manual quotes.

That is easy for anyone to misread.
Water Filter Removal

The water filter is located in the upper right-hand

corner of the refrigerator. The water filter filters water

for the ice maker and the water dispenser.

1. Turn the water filter 1/2 turn counterclockwise and

pull it down.

2. To install the filter, align the indication mark

(unlock position) and push it up while turning 1/2

turn clockwise until the lock position is aligned.

Do not over tighten.
That would be to the left while facing the filter and opposite for installation. Note where and when to push up. Please let me know if you have any questions and please rate if I am able to help you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!
