Do you know where it pools the most ? Most leaks occur around the pump housing and the door. over filling with water can cause seepage to a full blown flood. Check your water level switch.

The dishwasher does not fill up with water, but when we manully add water, it seem to run through cycle. also, the buttons seem not work properly. If I want to rest, it will not activate when pressed.


Hi

When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

What causes the cold water in a washer machine to come out real slow?


Hi

This may be either due to blocked inlet hose or low water pressure. When water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the inlet valve seems to be fine then make sure that the filter screen is clear & clean. If these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and check for the continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. Hope this helps... Please post back with model# if you need more information.

Water is leaking from the bottom of door. Seems to pulse when leaking. Leak is bad and not just a drip or two. All rubber seems to be good.


The bottom of the door is not sealed. Be certain of the correct type and quantity of soap. Be sure the unit is Leveled.

Leaks water underneath ..repair man said there was pin hole in hose underneath and needed new hose..are they over 100 dol to replace? Doest seem a tiny pin hole could cause that much water to flood out.


If you can locate the pin hole then when the machine is dry block the pin hole by putting araldite glue paste and let it settle for sometime. It should solve your problem.

Check the spray bar for split seams which reduce pressure to the spray holes and for any plugging of the spray holes. Check the filter screen at the bottom of the dishwasher for plugging. It may need to be removed and soaked in a solution of white vinegar and hot water for an hour or two. Access means removing all components down to the deck. Be certain to note placement of each part as you remove them.

Petrol lawnmower cutting out.


try changing the spark plug. if that doesnt work check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. also check the primer bulb for pin holes and proper seating/seal.

Dishwasher problem


My dishwasher Indesit DI67S will not run on the number 1 cycle. It will fill and then when that programme finishes it jumps straight to the drying cycle missing all the rinses out etc. If on the number 2 programme it goes all the way through but then doesn't dry. I've also noticed that the water doesn't seem to be heating up much and certainly isn't drying. Is this the element or something else? Once its reached the drying cycle the light for this just flashes then I have a job to try and reset the machine. It can take endless attempts. Will switching the machine off at the mains solve anything or is it the element?
Thankyou
