I can't get prime to the pump so that it will draw water from the lake. Pump runs, no pressure. ?? Any recommendation?? Thanks


I don't know how you do this so I hope this is not telling you something you know.
1. Make sure that there are no leaks in the suction line from the pump inlet down to where the piping goes under water.
2. Fill the pump body with water through the discharge piping.
3. Keep the discharge valve open and turn on the pump.
4. Wait and listen, pump sound should change as air is discharged through the open line and water gets closer to the pump.

Whilst wash on, water leaks from the underneath of washing machine. but cant see where it is coming from


if the water is leaking during the fill cycle when the detergent is being added from the drawer
ensure the draw is clear, if too much deturget rests has blocked the vent then water maybe running out on the inside.

if the problem is happening during the wash cycle this indicates a leak on your drum, ensure your door seal is intact and not leaking.

if the problem is during pumping, ensure that the pump is not causing a problem
maybe open the bottom vent and ensure the cover is seated properly and pump is clear.
also check the outlet pipe is not blocked or leaking and water is running back on the outside of the outlet pipe and under the machine


I hope this was useful.

Tuble dryer leaking, water not collecting in the water draw, tripping electricity, keeps coming up with the sign to empty water although water draw is empty


You didn't mention what brand appliance you have, so I'm only guessing. It may be that the water pump is jammed by some foreign object that has worked it's way down the drain line to the pump and locked it up. That not only would explain the leaking, it would also trip the circuit breaker when the pump stalls and overheats. Although you didn't say what brand this appliance is, I suspect it an all in one washer/dryer.

In any event, without knowing more details on what you really have and the manufacturer's name, all I can recommend is consult your Owners Manual or call a service technician.

My pump is not drawing water from the pool, dissambeled pump and it is clean and free of obstructions. removed pump from motor and inpeller is spinning when plugged in and the defuser seems to be ok...


Ok I''m assuming the pump is mounted higher than the water level in the pool. This means it needs to be primed. If everything is air tight, it should be self priming. Check to be sure your piping is open from the skimmer to the pump and not clogged. You can put a garden hose into the suction line of the pump and feel for flow coming up out of the bottom of the skimmer. If that is ok, then fill the pump strainer basket with water. Be sure filter is selected to filter. Make sure that the basket cover is tight to the cover gasket. After filling basket with water, quickly close the cover and start pump. If it still doesn't work, fill the basket again with water and check for any leaks. If the mechanical seal is leaking, it will not self prime. I'm not sure what type of pump you have, but Hayward has complete manuals for their pumps on www.haywardnet.com. Most pumps work about the same. GOOD LUCK!

Have an rainsoft Q10 classic apollo softner that does not draw brine. Ran a wire thru the brine injecter tube and it appeared to be clear of obstruction. Drained tri-guard glass did startcycle and redrew...


You most likely have a slight leak in the brine line. This is the most common failure on a water softener. A slight leak will allow air to enter during brine draw, breaking the vacuum. it doesn't take much of leak, in fact it can be small enough that water does not leak out during brine refill but it will not draw brine. Check the compression fittings at the brine tank and the softener valve. disassemble the connection, cut back the tubing and reconnect. Other things to look for are low water pressure, the unit requires 25 psi minimum during regeneration. Also make sure the drain line is not restricted and the maximum head on the drain is 4' over the softener.

Water dispenser not working. Ice dispenser works


There should be a water filter inside the water lines to the water spout. This filter could be clogged, or the water lines themselves may still be somewhat frozen and not allowing flow to the dispenser itself.
You can also test the power to the dispensor to make sure it is drawing water. Can you hear the pump trying to pump water to dispenser? The water valve should also be opening. You can test power to the valve that draws in water from the external water lines.

With the pump off, take out the pump basket and with your fingers
feel the front of the impeller you may have something blocking it.

Water leaking from dishwasher lg model lds5811ww


The drain line is clean. Have you checked to make sure the the rest of the drain is clear all the way down to the main drain?. Also check the pump to make sure that it is working properly, it might be pumping water in, but it may not be wanting to pump the water out
