If the pump is leaking then it is going to either be the water seals or o-rings on the inside of the pump. If this is the case I would recommend just tossing the unit, what it would cost to rip the machine apart and replace these items would be more than what the machine is worth.

I have a lawn boss 6015h and the deck is not lifting up fully


Dear Billy,

There are still things you can buy today that demand maintenance, and lawn equipment is one of them.
If you will get down underneath the deck , you should find either rust or a bent part or both are preventing the proper function.
You will probably need to take it all apart and clean and lubricate and replace parts.
Often the drill is to: Clean it thoroughly with a high pressure air or water hose after each use ( a pressure washer is great) , and to lubricate all the "joints" twice a year, or after every 5 uses, whichever occurs first.
God bless your efforts.

Clear rubber hose is off machine-what does it do? I've lost the owner's manual and cannot remember how to use the electric washer. Does that short clear rubber hose with a fine filter on one end...


The clear hose with a filter on the end is a cleaning solution pick-up tube. It attaches to the washer near where the pressure hose attaches to the machine. There is ususally a barbed hose fitting for it to slip over. If you are using the black, low pressure, soap tip the hose will allow the machine to pick up cleaning solution either from a bucket or straight from the bottle, mix it in the water and spray it out on whatever you are cleaning. It will not work if you have one of the high pressure tips on the wand. They are usually red, yellow, white or green.

Can you tell me what the error code E1 F9 means for a whirlpool duet model # WFW9250WR00?


F9 is an Overflow Condition error. If the Overflow contact on the pressure switch is closed for more than 60 seconds an Overflow condition will occur. In an Overflow condition, the Door may remain locked, and the Drain Pump may run constantly, even if PAUSE/CANCEL is pressed twice and the Display is cleared. Unplug the unit to service. You will need to check to following:

1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Check Wire Harness connectors to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
3. Check/Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
4. Check for Drain Pump Failure.
5. Check the Inlet Valve for proper shut off
6. Check the Pressure switch for proper operation.

1. Check the drain hose by removing it from the standpipe and pull a vacuum on it with a shop vac. It could be that you have an obstruction somewhere. You may have to check the drain pump and the drain hose just prior to the drain pump as well. This is the hose that attaches to the bottom of the tub. This area can get clogged with debris

2. Unplug the washer and remove the kick plate and top panel. Check for any loose connections at the drain pump, pressure switch (located in the right rear of the machine), and the CCU (located in the center rear of the washer behind the wash tub). You may have a loose or dirty connection somewhere. If you remove any connectors, make sure you write down where they go. It's best to only remove ONE connector at a time when checking the CCU. On the pressure switch, make sure the air hose is still attached. This is usually a clear or black rubber hose. With the air hose off, loose, or leaking, the switch will not work and the tub will continue to try to fill. The pressure switch can be checked by removing the the large connector plug from the front of the CCU at the very LEFT. Readings across pins 1 to 2, 3 to 4, 4 to 5, and 4 to 6 should ALL read 0 ohms.

3. The drain pump. Remove the clean out cover on the pump and check for debris. Make sure you drain the water from the drain lines, pump and hoses PRIOR to removing the cover. Otherwise, you will have about a gallon or so of water to clean up. The shop vac method works great for this. If the pump is running and clear of foreign matter, the pump is probably not the problem. A meter reading across the pump motor windings at the connector plug should be about 15 ohms.

4. The inlet valve. If the inlet valve would fail in this manner, the tub would be trying to fill with water all the time and not shut off (even with the washer turned OFF). You need to ask yourself if you find standing water in the tub when not in use. Replace the water inlet valve if this is the case. Readings across the HOT and/or COLD solenoids should each read about 800 ohms.

5. The suds error. This occurs when air from too much detergent gets into the drain line. If you are using HE detergent (which is great, because on the newer models NOT using HE detergent voids your warranty), but HOW MUCH are you using? Some things to consider:

a. Do you have soft water? This can actually cause the soap to suds better making the need to cut back on how much you use.

b. Look at the detergent container. Is it double or triple concentrated? Some detergents are sold as extra concentrated which means you need to cut back on the amount you use. Not doing so can cause the water to over suds.

c. What size loads are you using the detergent in? Running small loads with the same amount of detergent can also cause over sudsing.

Rule out the simple common sense things first. If everything else checks out and your problem still persists, you may have a failed CCU or pressure switch

I have a Goodman system and I have water leaking from the the small box next to my furnace. I have what looks like 3 lines running from unit to this box. One is a small copper one, another is a line...


the clear plastic hose is the condensate drain .. indeed they clog frequently .. lthat will allow water to overflow the pan that is desined to capture condensed water from the evaporator.. the plastic hose and the pipe it is attached to need to be cleaned out periodically ... allowing water to overflow can damage other things so its important to get the drain cleared .. however that drain has little to do with cooling efficiency .. your lack of cooling performance could be another problem ... sometimes the evaporator coil gets clogged (large finned unit behind where the overflow hose is attached inside furnace) .. that has to be cleaned once in a while but is tricky to do ... how often depends on how good the furnace air filter is and how often its changed ... as the evaporator becomes clogged with dust the cooling efficiency goes down .. same with the outdoor unit ... you have to wash out leaves and such periodically from the condenser coils .... if every thing is clean but the cooling efficiency is still low then have the unit checked for refrigerrant pressure .. it could be low .. of course make sure the furnace filter is not clogged ... also for cooling make sure all of the registers are open ... closing some can reduce overall efficiency ... make sure the outdoor unit fan is working properly ..

Washing machine won't stop filling--is the WLC defective?


The 3 likeliest causes of your problem are:
  1. Bad pressure switch (water level control)-It may react to your straw but the range it finally kicks off is higher than the highest possible water level.
  2. Bad sensing line-The plastic tube may have a pinhole leak caused by abrasion while your suspension system was out of order or it may just leak out the air. Place a small screw operated hose clamp on the hose where it attaches to the pressure switch. Place a finger over one end of the plastic hose and blow in the other as you submerge the hose under water to check for leaks. Replace if necessary.
  3. Clogged reservoir at tub end of sensing line-clean out with thin blade screwdriver. Sometimes grease or undissolved detergent accumulates in this area and blocks the pressure from sending a proper signal.
One of the above three should resolve your problem. Obviously, replace the pressure switch as a last resort after checking steps 2 and 3.

Good Luck

I am getting the F H error, my washer is an HE3 elite. The error starts arround a minute of starting the cycle. I open it an look for any type of filter and just found 2, one in the front and one where you...


F/H:
Condition
No water detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip not detected.

If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed.


Or
If the control has turned the water valves on and after 8 minutes the flow meter has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off and the error code will flash.

Check/Repair:

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
  • If there is no water in the unit:


  • 1. Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
    2. Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves
    3. Verify inlet valve operation
  • If there is water in the unit:

    1. Verify Drain pump operation
    2. Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch
  • Verify there is not a siphon problem
  • Verify wire harness connections to:Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check all hoses for possible leaks
  • Verify pressure switch operation
  • Verify flow meter operation
  • Verify CCU operation
Many times the FLOWMETER will fail on these washers - so the main board does not get a signal there is water coming into the unit.

Verify Flow meter operation and that the Pressure Switch hoses are intact and connected properly. Remove the three screws in the top panel along the back of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel should slide back, then, lift off. The flowmeter will be located on the left-hand side of the washer (facing from the front) between the inlet valve and dispenser. It's a small white plastic device with hoses attached. The pressure switch is located on the right-hand side of the washer in the rear. It is a round plastic device with electrical connections and a hose attached. There should be a tech sheet directly behind the panel or attached to one of the interior cabinet walls. Please refer to this sheet to learn how to perform diagnostics, how to locate the components mentioned, and the specific measurements required in determining if the components are good or bad.

The HF error code is a hot fill valve control issue. Here are some tips:

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
  • If there is no water in the unit:
    1. Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
    2. Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves
    3. Verify inlet valve operation
  • If there is water in the unit:
    1. Verify Drain pump operation
    2. Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch
  • Verify there is not a siphon problem
  • Verify wire harness connections to:Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check all hoses for possible leaks
  • Verify pressure switch operation
  • Verify flow meter operation
  • Verify CCU operation.

This is directly from the Whirlpool tech sheets we use to verify these problems. Make sure you have the hot water on fully and the hoses and strainers inside (at the fill valve and hose connection) are clean and debris free. let me know if this helps you out any.
