Question about Miele Dishwashers

1 Answer

Just purchsed G1173Vi - failed to fit due to exiting pipework on wall being directing in line with the inlet hose which is located directed above the waste hose. Had no problems fitting previous 2 dishwashers, is this common? Pipes are sealed to the machine Can you suggest a solution? obviously I cannot move exiexisting pipework.

Hi there!

You say - "obviously I cannot move exiexisting pipework."
, but I would consider it necessary if you need to fit this machine.

The only other option is to fit a diferent model - with connections similar to the one you removed.

Any competent plumber will be able to move pipework in under an hour, and would be considered normal if fitting a sink or similar.

    Will this not solve the problem for you?



    I cannot see how anything else can be done.

    I would really apreciate if you rated this as useful at least.

Where is the inlet heater hose located on a 2005 Hyundai Elantra?


You wouldn't even be able to see it from this angle. It will be on the firewall. There will be two hoses (rubber) next to each other that are the same size. They are likely 5/8" hoses. The inlet is typically on the passenger side. Make sure the hoses are rubber. The A/C lines run into the firewall near that area but they are metal.

Need a fuel line diagram for 1985 700 yamaha maxim


There\'s no "fuel line diagram" for the Maxim-X that I\'m aware of but the fuel lines aren\'t all that complicated.



Let\'s start at the gas tank. The petcock has 2 hoses coming from it - the smaller of the two is not a fuel line - it\'s the vacuum line to trigger the petcock valve and it connects on the hose nipple at the top of the #2 intake manifold. Some people have petcocks where the vacuum hose leaves the petcock toward the back of the bike before doubling back to the #2 manifold. Others have petcocks where the vacuum hose leaves the petcock toward the front of the bike before connecting at the #2 manifold. Either way works. It\'s not important which way as long as the hose doesn\'t get kinked and cut off vacuum from the manifold.



The larger hose from the petcock is, of course, the main fuel feed. From the factory there was not an in-line fuel filter in that hose but there should be. In fact, it\'s one of the first things I recommend to people who are tinkering with their X fuel system. Install an inline fuel filter right behind the petcock as shown here:

http://www.maxim-x.com/fuel_filter.html (there are pictures midway down the page)

The end of the hose emerging from the fuel filter has bends in it in order to neatly find it\'s way to the fuel T between the #2 and #3 carbs. The T is just above the tops of the bowls. Don\'t be afraid if you see the fuel T rotate while pressing the hose onto it - that\'s fine.... unless it rotates too freely in which case the seals might dried up and you might experience some seeping or even full blown leakage around the T fitting where it enters the #2 and #3 carbs. Oh... one more thing about the main fuel hose - there is a guide loop bolted to the carb rack on the rail joining the top-back of the carbs, between the #2 and #3 carbs. The main fuel hose is meant to be held in that guide loop.



Two down - two to go.



There are only two remaining and identical fuel hoses - they are actually float bowl vent/overflow hoses. There are 2 more T fittings on the X Mikunis - both are at the same level.... just a bit higher up than the fuel T for the main fuel hose. There is one vent/overflow T between carbs #1 and #2 and another between carbs #3 and #4. Just like the main fuel inlet, these T fittings also rotate. But unlike the main fuel inlet, if they rotate too freely and imply that the seals may be dried up, it\'s of little consequence because they\'re only vent/overflow fittings anyway. If the carbs are setup right and the float valves aren\'t sticking then there should never be any fuel in those hose at all. Seriously - they should remain forever dry and fuel-free if everything is correct. It\'s only when the float valves stick or if someone incorrectly sets the float levels too high that you\'d ever expect to see any fuel coming from those fittings through either of the vent/overflow hoses.



There is one caution about connecting the 2 vent/overflow hoses. Make sure they aren\'t directed UP from the T fittings and draped over anything before heading down again. The hoses should leave the T fittings in a downward direction, otherwise, if there\'s some kind of condition that causes float levels to be too high, draped hoses will allow the fuel levels to get much higher in the carbs before draining away and that can lead to other unhappy things.



So to sum up - there are only 4 hoses involved in the Maxim-X fuel system (unless you\'re in California in which case there\'s an extra bottle and lines). 1.The petcock vacuum hose, 2.The main fuel feed which goes to a T between carbs #2 & #3 and which should have an inline fuel filter installed, 3.The left float bowl vent/overflow hose which connects to a T between carbs #1 and #2 and should be directed down, and 4.The right float bowl vent/overflow hose which connects to a T between carbs #3 and #4 and should be directed down. That\'s all there is.

I need the correct oil line routing for 1999 FLSTC from the tank to the pump and filter


On your oil tank, there are three hoses. The hose that comes off the lower fitting goes to the outside fiiting on the top of the pump or to the center fitting of the pump top plate. The oil comes out of the inner fitting on the pump and goes to the oil filter. It should to to the outside holes of the filter. The oil leaves the filter though the large hole in the center and returns to the tank to one of the fittings at the top of the tank. The other fitting at the top of the tank comes for the engine case just above and to the inside of the oil pump. On the lower backside of the oil tank is the oil drain hose. If you're unsure which fitting on your oil pump is the inlet and which is the outlet, squirt a bit of oil into each fitting until it's full. Then press the start button or rotate the engine in it's normal direction of rotation and watch the oil. If the oil is sucked into pump, that's the inlet. If it's pumped out of the pump, that's the outlet. Sorry I don't have a picture. There is a drawing in the service manuals.

Good Luck
Steve

Why is my machine flashing a tap sign and stopping?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Turn off the water at the wall connection and remove the water hoses from the inlet water valve. Remove the inlet screens and wash them under slowly running water by rubbing your fingers over them. Reinstall the inlet screens and re-connect the water hoses to the machine. Remove the hoses at the wall connection and make sure the installer has not installed inlet screens on the hoses. If there are inlet screens on the hoses also clean the inlet screens. Then reconnect the hoses.. turn on the water and test for leaks then test the machine.

This should get you going unless you have relly low water pressure in the home.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Whirlpool duet. F20 problem. Have replaced input valves.


"F20" is a No Water Detect error. It is an indication that you either have no water coming into the washer, or very little water at all. If the pressure switch has not tripped after 6 minutes, the error code is displayed. This can be a potential problem with the following:


If you have NO water in the wash tub, check the following:

- Inlet water valve may be clogged. Clean inlet screens if necessary.
- Make sure water taps are on.
- Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.

If you HAVE water filling the wash tub, check the following:

- Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem. Click the following link for instructions:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

- Verify Drain Pump operation.
- Verify the Pressure Switch hoses are intact and connected properly.
- Verify wire harness connections at the pressure switch, inlet valves, drain pump and Central Control Unit (CCU).

To access the Drain Pump - UNPLUG the washer and take the lower panel under the door off by removing the three screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Propping the front feet of the washer up can make access much easier. I use a couple small blocks of wood. With the screws removed, the panel should drop down then come off. If it sticks, tap either side and it should come free. The pump is located directly under the wash tub in the front of the washer. Verify the electrical connections are good and that the pump is running. Click on the following link to check the pump for obstructions:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385845-checking_drain_pump_in_whirlpool_duet

To access the Pressure Switch - 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 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 plastic air hose attached. Verify the electrical connections are intact, and the air hose is attached and not cracked or leaking.

To access the Central Control Unit (CCU) - with the top panel of the washer removed, the CCU is located directly behind, and just above the rear of the wash tub. There should be a tech sheet directly behind the lower panel or attached to one of the interior cabinet walls. Please refer to this sheet to learn how to perform diagnostics and to verify the wire connections at the CCU. In addition, the tech sheet will also assist in how to locate the components mentioned, and the specific measurements required determining if the components are good or bad.

A Nutone CV-450 System with inlet nozzle switch issues


You are suffering a connection problem of the hose end fitting to the wall outlet. Either the hose is not aligned with the two pins in the wall outlet, or the pins in the outlet are dirty and not making good connection to the hose end fittting.

I have a pin hole in my turbos intercooler! I believe it's my intercooler! It's a thin radiator that runs oil through! Anyway, I was wondering if there was an easy fix or if I need to just get a new one!...


The IC will have some blowby oil in it, but if you are referring to the small radiator looking thing on the passenger side that has two oil lines running to it, you are actually talking about your oil cooler. The IC is rather large by comparison and sits directly behind the bumper and directly in front of the radiator and it runs the full side to side length of the radiator. It has a large inlet hose from the turbo and a large exit hose to the turbo delivery pipe that runs to the throttle body. If you have a leak in the IC, you will notice decreased boost at WOT. If it is actually the oil cooler, keep a close eye on it. These do fail given enough time, and a small leak will become a large one, usually at the worst possible moment. Ultimately, you will have to replace it. The stock unit is costly. Some people use an aftermarket and relocate to in front of the radiator and above the IC. Flex-a-lite makes several that will fit this location. Remember, if you go this route, you will need longer hoses.

Two year old maytag topload washer leaking from bottom


Possible the water is coming out of the wall standpipe. Plug off the wall first.
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

No to air, due to the small bore of the pipework they usualy run slow this assists the water to cool as it lows through the unit. Regards Advisor
