Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

My Omega WD 1052 keeps leaking water. Over the past three weeks, it has leaked through the base, through the back and even through the washing powder dispenser. I have had the pressure hose replaced by a repair man, but it is still leaking. It doesn't leak every time I wash, and varying amounts of water come out each time it leaks. I am using a small amount of washing liquid, but I still can't solve this problem. Help!

SOURCE: water is leaking out of the washing powder drawer

the spray holes in the soap manifold are partially blocked and spraying at an angle. try to reduce the water flow pressure at the feed tap and clean the water holes in the soap tray manifold (above the tray).

SOURCE: soap won't dispense

the problem is quite easy. There are 2 valves on top of the dispenser box. When disconnected from power source please check whether the connections are secured. Sometimes the valve connections shake lose during transport or opperation. Also check the dispens drawer for clogging . This should be fixed easily. If you leave the top cover off and plug the machine in and start opperation there should be 120V on the valve connectors. If there is and water stil does not come out the valve is faulty and you have to order a new one.

SOURCE: washing machine leaks when not in use

It leaksYour washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: 

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time

During fill only
If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.


The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak. 


Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak. 



During drain and spin only
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. 


All the time
If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.


Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. 


Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. 


Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

SOURCE: I need an instruction manual for an Omega WD 1052 washer, please

I have searched everywhere as well, and no luck. I did find a bit of information on it which I have pasted below -- it might help a bit if you want to play around with it.
I would also suggest reading manuals from other wash/dryer machines to get an idea how they work--then maybe you can figure yours out by just pushing the different buttons and seeing what the display says. (At the end of this post, I have pasted a link to a different Omega washer/dryer -- perhaps you could skim it and see if it is at all similar to yours.)

Information About the Omega WD1052.2 washer dryer
THIRTEEN PROGRAMME:
The WD1052.2 is sequentially segmented into thirteen rotary positions for both easy and logical programme selection and for the quick identification of programme progression.

Choose from one of three wash sequences:
Programmes one through five are for the heavily soiled, more colour fast fabrics and daily wear.

Programmes six through to ten look after the slightly soiled, synthetics and for delicate items.

Woollens are exclusively washed on programmes eleven through to twelve.

CONDENSER DRYING:
The WD1052.2 can automatically dry a half a load of washing at the end of the wash programme provided the half load button is selected and a drying time is set on the centre control dial.

At any time the WD1052.2 can be regarded as an independent dryer, that is, a wash programme does not have to proceed into the drying stage. An example would be drying damp clothing or toweling from the bathroom. Simply choose a STOP position after either 5 or 10 on the programme dial. On the centre dial choose either full heat, the pink zone, or half heat, the green zone.

Another useful variation of the WD1052.2 is the ability to choose final spin only followed automatically by condenser drying. Having completed a hand wash, for instance, simply load the clothing and select final spin, 5 or 10 with the half load button selected and drying time set.

Whenever the WD1052.2 is in the drying mode the load can be easily accessed at any time via the porthole. The drying will automatically resume once the door is reshut.

Specifications:
Freestanding or Built-in
5kg (11lb) dry weight Capacity
2.5kg (5 1/2 lb ) dry weight condenser
13 Programmes
40 minute Fast Wash
Special universal 2B programme
Dedicated woollens cycle
Independent wash temperature control
1000 or 500 r.p.m spin speeds
Half load Economy selections
Drip dry no spin programming
Anti crease hold in final rinse Selection
Extra rinse option
Two drying heat settings
Stainless steel inner and outer wash drums
Two minute delay safety door release
Built-in heating element
Front mounted easy access lint/forgin matter
inspection
Automatic balancing of wash load

WD 1457RD How do you clear the AE code


It indicates a leak has activated the flood protection device in the base. Lean the machine forward (or backward) & see if water runs out of the base. If it does you may be able to restart...but the source of the leak will need to be identified & fixed. I think it would be wise to remove the lid & check if the inlet valve has popped first.
Keep me posted.

My new omega washing mashine shows an E2 error code 5 miniutes into the wash how do I fix this?


Hello,

Manufactured by omega washing mashine have an electronic controlpanel that must be unlocked in order to set or make changes to your washingcycle.
E2 indicates a water leak. When a leak occurs, it trips thefloat device by dumping water into the dishwasher's base. The incoming watervalve will be switched off, and the drain pump will turn on until the sump isempty
However, if an error light is blinking on your dishwasher'scontrol panel, the panel must be reset before you can gain access. Blinkinglights on your washer control panel may signal a mechanical problem that needsto be repaired. If the lights continue to blink after you've reset the controlpanel, contact Sears to service omega washing mashine or considertroubleshooting the appliance yourself carefully.Instructions
1 Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button onyour omega washing mashine for four seconds to unlock the dishwasher controlpanel.
2 Press the "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash,""Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" buttons one after theother, in fairly quick succession.
3 Wait for the washer to run a short diagnostic test.
4 Press the "Cancel/Drain" button at the endof the diagnostic test cycle. This should reset the control panel on your omegawashing mashine. Thankfor using fixya.

Maytag Performa PAV2300 washer leaks


Hi hindsr

I dont know for sure what it is but i would guess that the tub is going off balance during the spin just befor the rinse and the tub is not centered. so what happens is watter hits the top of the tub and runs down the back (inside) and thats where the water is comming from.
