    I'll look into that solution. The make of the washing machine is Frigidaire Electrolux. Model number: FTF530FS3. Front loading machine.

    Thank you.

What is the model number of your machine? Have you checked the water valve to assure that both sides of the valve are working if they are not then you would either only be getting hot of cold into the machine also have you checked the pressure switch which tells the machine how much water its supposed to have in it to wash if the switch is stuck down then you would have low water inside your machine please message me back with model number and your finds while inspecting your machine with the model number i can also send you a schematic diagram of your machine as well if you have any other questions please message me back and please remember when our chat is concluded to rank how this opinion has helped thanks again Rick

Hi


Low water level is due to faulty float switch or siphoning issue with your washer. This may occur if air is trapped. This may also happens when the drain hose is not correctly installed and drain water is flowing back in the washer. You would need to check the drain hose, fill hose and float switch assembly to figure out the exact fault location. Hope this helps... Please post back with model# if you need more information.

Water level sensor


The 'low-water' sensor installed in a bathtub is designed to NOT allow the pump to run without water contacting it.
It sounds as if this is operating as it should.
Once the pump comes on you should be able to touch the "logo" or the on/off button to turn the pump on and off.
If the pump is not turning on/off when the tub is full of water you may be experiencing a problem with the control box under the tub skirt.

Sta Rite 333 Btu Natural Gas Heater Maxetherm Sr333na Leaks water and high copper in my water


It sounds like your water has either been running at a low pH level, or you have a salt system. Basically your heat exchanger coil has dissolved into your pool water.
The exchanger can be replaced although it is pricey. I would recommend replacing it with a cupronickel coil. This is far more resistant to the type of corrosion you have experienced. Just be sure to keep a closer eye on the pH also.

Adjust the water setting of the tank to higher level, meaning an additional water will be added to the tank. The purpose of this is to release extra water that will fill the missing water level in the bowl.

What is E no 1 on washing machine wa13G7Q1


Hi


Error code 1E means WATER PRESSURE SWITCH ERROR. This error occurs when the Generated Frequency Signal of water level is low or high.
WATER LEVEL (WIL) SIW (KHz)
Normal Level = Abnormal W/L Frequency
Low Level = 30.00 Khz
High Level = 15.00 Khz
If the Water level is detected as low or high for more than 5 seconds, then it is a PRESSURE SWITCH Error. When this error occurs the drain pump will operate for 3 minutes after which you would get this error. To resolve this issue you can try and clean the filter screens inside the water lines. To check this disconnect lines where they go into washer use needle nose pliers to pull out screens clean with water and put them back. This will resolve the issue.

If my oil light is flashing does that mean its low . and if its low what kind of oil should i use . its a 2003 honda cbr 600 f4i , also the bike gets hot on the temp guage after riding only 15 minutes ,...


It comes on every time the oil pressure falls below a preset level. If you are running out of oil (because the level is low), then 1) shame on you for not checking the oil level frequently! It's not like you have to lift the hood, or anything hard like that, and 2) don't drive it at all until you get some oil in there!

If you have plenty of oil, then you could have a stuck oil pressure relief valve, a blocked oil pickup, a worn out oil pump, an unbelievably clogged oil filter, or an internal oil leak (from a crack, or something coming loose).

In a water cooled car, the water only does 60% of the cooling. Another 20% is by aire passing over the engine surface, and the rest is carried to the oil sump to be cooled by air passing over the pan. Motorcycles have highly finned oil sumps for a reason: They shed a lot of heat through the oil. If you are low on oil, you will be low on cooling, too.

If you fill up with oil, but you still overheat, you probably have an excessively lean fuel mixture. If that is the case, and you let that continue, this bike won't last very long.

I just checked and found that this is a water cooled engine. So yes, you probably need coolant -- check into that right away. If the water pump gets dry even for a split second, the seals (lacking the lubrication that the water provides) will be destroyed -- it happens instantly.

The water level in the bowl is limited by the height of the internal trap down stream from the bowl. There is no adjustment possible. If the problem is odors, you can either flush more often, turn on the exhaust fan, or buy a different brand or model of toilet.
