If you mean the spout at the bottom, the spout has a bad rubber and needs to be replaced or if possible only the rubber seal.

I have mtr-2 dishwasher ..it is continuously showing the symbol for water filling and not going even water fully filled ..what should i do..bcz machine is not running....


You say it says water flowing. But, is it flowing? Does it overflow? If so it may be overflow switch on the bottom that got food stuff in it.

Water stops flowing


It sounds like the plumbing system has some type of device to prevent someone from using the hot water from a common water heater too fast for the water heater to keep up the temperature.

Overflow outside bathroom dripping how do Ifix it?


Just make sure that the over flow is tight with gasket in place. And all fitting's tight behind wall goin gto tub overflow. If it is check out out next step

1-This is a common issue that comes up. Make sure that the shower valve plate is sealed and tight to tub wall. Reason why I ask that is when you take a shower water will find a way out, down the plate or if tile at the point of where it meet's tub. And will look totally like it's the overflow every time.

Every time we use the shower there is a very pugnent smell [fishy] all drains been checked, all pluming been checked, all water is fine. shower is 11 years old could this be the problem. the shower we have...


Also check the following things:

The control unit, hose and shower head - depending on the type, some heads will hold water. Remove them and check to see if they are exhibiting signs of mold or possible failure. At 11 years old, the element could be on its way out. If your Mira unit has an auxiliary pump, it should be checked as well. If it's the shower head, you can try to soak it in white vinegar to remove the smell, or simply replace it. If you have well water, you should consider flushing the system to be sure water isn't being trapped somewhere. Also, if the iron content of the water is high, or if your water softener isn't operating properly, that could be an issue as well. The Mira control unit may need to be de-scaled or otherwise checked.

Check the shower stall walls (with no tub) at the bottom where they meet the basin, unless the shower enclosure is all one piece. There could be mold behind the intersection of the walls and base.

Look for any trace of mold growth around any other enclosure components.

If the shower is in a tub, remove the overflow cover on the tub and see if there is any trace of mildew or mold in that area. Follow your nose.

Finally, check for any excessive build up of soap scum, although this is less likely because you'd notice it more readily.

Things like this can be tough to diagnose, so just take things slow and one at a time.

WATERMILL SHOWER PUMP - On turning on the shower


This sounds like a problem with the flow switch(es) that control the operation of the pump motor.

When the pressure decreases I assume that the pump has switched itself off - check this before going any further, but I will assume that this is the case. (If the pump is still running when the pressure decreases then you have a really strange problem and I would need to think again).

The pump motor is controlled by flow switches on the outlet side of the pump - when the shower valve is opened the flow of water activates a switch that supplies power to the pump motor. There will be one flow switch on the hot outlet from the pump and another on the cold outlet.

I assume that one or both of the flow switches is not operating correctly. This can be either a fault with the switch(es) or insufficient water pressure on the inlet side. Has anything changed that might have reduced the pressure on the inlet side of the pump? Have you moved the water tank that supplies the pump? (cold water storage tank)

If there is adequate pressure on the inlet then one or both of the flow switches is not working correctly. To further diagnose the problem try turning the shower valve to cold water only and test the operation of the pump, then turn it to hottest and test again.

If the pump operates correctly on cold only or hot only then the associated flow switch is OK, and the other one is faulty.

Replacing a flow switch is not difficult if you are reasonably handy, and I am happy to provide further help if you need it.

Water pressure to main hose has ceased, with water now pouring out of a small outlet pipe at bottom of unit next to fixing for main hose.


Sounds like your outlet at the top has clogged with grit/dirt. Turn the shower off, remover the entire shower head hose from its base (where it screws into the wall or pipe. Turn water back on. If you get a steady flow (as you should) the problem is isolated to the shower head/hose. Detach the shower head from the hose and clean the screen inside, attach hose back on first, try water again, if this flows then your blockage is in the head itself. After removing and cleaning the screen inside the shower head, reattach and run water, this should fix your problem, if not, you may need a new shower head. If the water will not flow to the outlet pipe alone, either your shower switch is broken or you have a serious plumbing problem.

Water flow out from the overflow tube

Overfills with water


Possible but unlikely. If you unplug the machine does the water flow? If not, the problem is the water level switch. Generally, this is a diaphragm switch connected via a tube to the bottom of the tub. It usually is about 2 or three inches in diameter, has a water tube and a few wires connected. Go on a site with a blowup diagram and locate the switch. Disconnect the wires...after noting where they go and with the power off. Insulate them. Does this stop the water flow? Buy the switch.
