Fluidmaster Problem 385UK063 - I have purchased one of these for my Fluidmaster 400UK but it does not shut off the flow from the inlet. When I operate the lever manually the pin comes thru the sealing washer but it does not move the washer - I do not see how it could possibly work to close off the flow from the inlet. Please advise! peterpalethorpe@gmail.com

SOURCE: Maytag washer PAV2300 water over flow

tidalwave If the water continues to flow even when the washer timer and the power to the washer are off then you are right and the water inlet valve has to be replaced. If it does it only when the washer is on then it could be different problems. In that case the first thing you have to check is the water level switch. This is the device which controls the water level. Remove the power first.Open the control panel and you will see the switch on the left side. There is the clear plastic hose connected to the switch. Make sure the hose is not loose. This is one of the most common cause of overflow. If it got loose, drain out all water from the washer before you reconnect the hose. If this is not the issue then you have to check the continuity across the water level switch therminals. When there is no water you should measure the continuity across therminals 11 and 12 (gray and orange wires). Whet the tub has filled up with water you should measure the continuity across therminals 11 and 14 (gray and light blue wires). If the continuity is wrong replace the water level switch. If you are going to do it, make sure there is no water in the tub before you will remove the clear plastic hose from the old switch. Good luck. Gendos. post back...

SOURCE: Maytag washer PAV2300 water over flow

I had the same problem and went out to a website for Maytag washers. That website advised that the problem could be mechanical or electrical. In my case, the problem was a clogged tube and it took only ten or fifteen minutes to fix.
0. Unplug the machine.
1. Open up the front of the washer. Along the left hand side is a long transparent tube. The tube connects to a wallet size container on the side and near the bottom of the tub.
2. Inspect the transparent tube. It may be clogged where the tube meets the wallet sided container.
Note: When the tub is full, it creates pressure in that wallet size compartment which sends air up that tube to a pressure switch located within the panel at the top of the washer. The pressure switch flips and tells the machine - stop filling the tub with water. My machine had a visible clog in the bottom of the tube that carries the air from the bottom of the tub up to the pressure switch.
3. Disconnect the tube and clean. I used a pipecleaner to get most of the mold out. To completely clear the tube, remove the top panel and disconnect the tube from the pressure switch in the top panel and blow air down the tube.
4. Reconnect, test - and you should be good to go. If not, your pressure switch may be dead.

SOURCE: I have installed a fluidmaster 400 bottom inlet

I have installed 400A or 400LS valves on systems as low as 30psi, but below that I don't know that it would work very well if you needed it to fill faster.

Keep in mind that your pressure to the toilet will be 1/2psi for every foot above the fill level of the tank, which is reduced by friction loss in the pipe and fittings on the way to the toilet.

I just installed a Kohler Forte R10412-N-CP. Hot water flow is good. However, very low cold flow. What's wrong


First turn off the shut-off valves and remove the Forte faucet inlet hose from the cold water line. Then put a temporary inlet hose on that shut-off valve. Test how much water flows into a bucket when you open the valve. Assuming that you had good flow from the cold water shut-off valve through the supply hose, a trickle flow on one side suggests the cartridge plunger (mixing valve) or the inlet hose is blocked or damaged. Since this is a new unit, I'd recommend you replace the faucet. The best option may be to take it to the place where it was purchased (depending on the return policy).

I hope this helps and wish that I had better news for you.

Have installed new Fluidmaster PRO45; takes 5 min. to fill tank. Flow through our pipe valve is strong. There was an insert in the inlet pipe to quiet the fill; we removed that and still takes 5 minutes....


Most likely either the shutoff valve or the fill valve is not opening correctly or is somehow clogged. First rule out the shut-off valve by turning it off, disconnecting the fill pipe from the toilet tank. Attach a hose to the loose end of the fill valve (duct tape will do) or point it out the window or into the shower. Now turn on the shut-off valve. If it doesn't flow like a fire hose, then the shut-off valve is the problem. You will have to remove the shut-off valve so, you might as well replace it with a new one. If the shut-off valve is NOT the problem, then you might as well disassemble the fill valve and you may be able to remove debris from it. Or just replace it. Good luck!

The fluidmaster inlet valve schreeches when filling any idea how to cure it the inlet valve is three year old and works fine but for the above problem


Hi mickh857...

Your not going to want to hear this but,
The only thing to do is replace the inlet valve if you want to rid yourself of the noise
There is no repair to them, they are glued or welded together once they start giving problems then they normally only get worse.
What happens is the "O" rings inside of the unit "grow" from the ammonia in the water or sometimes dirt gets inside and after a while restricts the in-flow of the valve making the strange noise you talked about.
Please take time to rate me

Bought a new fludmaster cistern float vallve but it does not turn off water to the cistern. Even after adjusting inlet valve screw klevel


You have to twist the unit before you install it to match the height of the old ballcock. You must have made it too tall and hence the water level has to be centimeters higher than the overflow tube to shut off.

After tank fills up, water continues to flow a little. How do you fix it?


Is the water flowing into the overflow? If so adjust the water level. Have you checked the shut off seal inside fluidmaster? If you just installed could've jogged some sediment lose in the line and plugged the seal if older could have a bad seal.

After flush tank refills very slowly


Make sure that any valves that you shut to install the fill valve are fully open after the installation.

If that doesn't work, the following is from another fix your stuff site:
Shut off water supply. Lift the rod arm and remove top cap assembly by turning 1/8 turn counterclockwise. Using a straightened coat hanger, carefully clean out the inlet passage of the Valve.

If these don't help, check the model number of your Fluidmaster and include that the next time you write.

Replace the top cap of your fill valve, or just the fluidmaster seal disc. Here is a link to the Fluidmaster fill-valve Instructions.

I installed brand new fluidmaster and it would not shut off even though the flowter are all the way up. why it would not shut down?


If the fill valve will not turn off. There may be debris at seal. The seal in the top of valve may be damaged.

Shut water off and the top will come off.
