Trying to fill fresh water tank. Overflows in a minute


there is probably a stoppage in the relief opening. should be next to the potable water fill. are you trying to fill from the pressure inlet or potable fill inlet? if from the pressure inlet, there is a bypass valve by the fresh water tank to divert watr into it.

Washer adds water whilst extracting


The washer will add water in the rinse/pin cycle even while it is pumping out. This is to give the clothes a wash while spinning to remove excess soap suds. Could this be your problem

Water light is on ,Water tank is full but the light stays on


If the water tank stays full it indicates that the pump cannot function properly.
Before first use, the Sirena pump needs to be 'primed'. This is indicated by the blinking blue 'water' LED. On a new machine (or a refurbished one as in my case), empty the water container first, then
  • remove the plastic water container
  • activate the small spring valve mechanism built into the bottom of the water tank.
    This plastic valve mechanism could initially be hard to depress, because the small metal spring is too strong, or the entire mechanism may be stuck altogether. Exercise this spring and the small valve a few times (ok: 10 times).
  • once the spring-loaded valve moves freely (it becomes easy to depress with your finger), the pump will have no problem activating the spring mechanism and starts sucking water out of the tank:
  • refill with filtered water almost to the top and observe the floating magnet (fill indicator) now in its UP position. You will have to refill the water after a few shots and using steam.
  • Press the ON/OFF button and open the steam knob clockwise all the way until you can hear the pump working and a steady stream of water escapes... onto the floor, or if you're smart, into a small container.
  • Once primed, the pump can operate and in turn, the machine starts heating up.
  • Now you can make your espresso, and even try the steam wand after it shoots out a short stream of water. Once you have steam coming out of the wand, you can start getting serious about making your brew...
I believe that a lot of problems, like failure to heat up, machine doesn't work, etc. are caused by this small spring mechanism being a little hard to operate initially. The Sirena is programmed to operate ONLY if it can extract water out of the tank.

Try it and enjoy the superb cappucino, espresso, etc. -the beautiful Sirena was born in Italy and is a little temperamental, but will be your best friend with a little help in the mechnical department (Think FIAT). By the way: I am a German engineer -no kidding.

Water wont fill washer. The water currently in


The pump is probably clogged with a coin. Pull off the hoses and check the pump. Make sure you put a pan under the hoses to catch the water

Found this online and the solution worked for me. Just fill the water container!

What if F 10 shows?
– No water can be pumped from
the water tank.
– F 10 also shows, if the water tank
was not filled correctly during
descaling.

– Fill the system with water. See "Before
using the coffee system for the first
time".
– Remove and reinsert the water tank.
– Refill to the mark and restart descaling.
– If the message still shows, contact

Kenmore top load washer leaks as it fills and drain hose is not an issue. There is a small hole in the plastic hosing where the two hoses meet, but why is water even getting to that point when it should be...


As the washer fills the water will go up the drain hose to the same height as the watr fills in the tub. That is why the drain needs to be higher then the tub or the water can just run down the drain.

Fill water tank warning stays on even when tank is full.


I've had this problem. Looks like its the float in the back corner of the water tank, which contains something magnetic that must trigger a sensor. I put a piece of plastic in the float chamber to push the float closer to the side of the tank. Be careful, if you jam the float (in the up position) then you may run out of water without any warning. Very annoying when you can't get your morning coffee.

Fill Watertank Message


The black thing floating in the water tank is a plastic shell with a magnet inside. If you clean it...make sure you reinstall it with the tapered (smaller) side down. There is a slight size difference BUT it will make ALL the difference in the world.

I had no idea there was a magnet in that black/greyish case. The direction of the casing is important.
I had the same problem and that solved it!
