Maybe you installed the check valve upside down and the water will not pass through a check valve that is facing down instead of up. If you took the bottom strainer plate off the pump and cleaned it out in there, the pump impeller may have stipped its splines and consequently only the shaft turns. Usually I find small stones, string wood chips etc. that stop the pump. The breaker should pop if it is the proper amperage, when stopprd up with debris. Good luck. Hope this helps you solve your problem. Please post to fixya.com if it does, so I get the credit for the solve. Let me know if you do need more advice. I will be happy to give you the whole lowdow on sumps if you wish.

Fisher Paykel washer stuck on rinse cycle. Wont advance. Pump fine. Could it be the diverter valve. Took it apart and it was clean, no broken parts.


Check your belts, maybe belt slipping or pump jammed, if okay replace the electronics board. You can fry your electronics board if the water pump becomes jammed for any reason

Lo longer steams


I just finished taking my wifes S3101 apart because of the same problem. I found the inlet and outlet hoses clear, so the problem had to be with the heater. I took the water side of the heater apart and found the outlet nipple clogged with dirt and sand. I live in VA Beach and my wife uses tap water. There was a lot of sand and dirt in the heater, so I cleaned all of that out, used a very small drill bit to clear the outlet nipple and then reassembled. It works fine now, and you will have to use distilled water if you want the unit to work for any period of time. The casing screws were a real pain to remove, so take your time.

My sub pump is running every ten seconds. It


Hi,
Yes, You have a bad check valve. Sometimes dirt gets stuck in the check valve and the dirt will not let it shut. If you can, take the piping apart near the check valve and verify that the valve is bad ans that it is not simply being held open by debris.
What happens when the valve does not shut is that the water in the piping will just run back into the pit and make the pump continuously cycle...That sounds like what is happening to you.

Does this model fully drain?


Switch immediately to a Brand Name Dishwasher powder (like Electrosol or Cascade.)  Avoid gels, tablets and never use a dish soap that is meant for washing dishes in a sink.  This will solve the "bubbles" problem.
Yes, dishwashers do maintain some level of water inside to keep the pump seals/gaskets from drying out or seizing. As long as the water down there is clear and has no odor, you and your apartment's dishwasher is fine.
OK?  Post back with any more questions.

Washer is Leaking Water


Replace pump. The newer ones are a little thicker. Hair and sand will cause them to fail, like bath mats and door mats.

My xbox wont read my game disc


if you can't send the xbox back to Microsoft this worked for me.
The 360 would spin the game up and say reading but than stop and do nothing.
I took the case apart, took out the cd drive, took that apart so i could get to the laser.
put a little big of very clean water on a q-tip, wipe the laser lens down and use the dry side to dry it off.  put it somewhat back together and test, this worked fine for me, it read a disk no problem.

WASHING MACHINE WONT SPIN


How much you loading in the machine?

Since when this problem arised. How much old it is?
Is tt spins, but doesn't pump.
If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged.
If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt.
Let me know in bit more detail so I can investigate further.

I had the same problem, so I took out the black stopper, and soaked the whole thing in bleach water for about an hour, then I took a hand full of " aquarium " rocks and put them inside the tank, and shook them inside using a bit of the same water and then got rid of the rocks,( the rocks worked as an scrubber ) .... it worked pretty good
