Water does not get hot on a hot wash


Shut off the water. Disconnect & check the BOTH water supply hoses at the MACHINE to check for obstructions / kinks / etc: Check for and clean any strainer / filter on the hoses and inlet to the washer. Direct the hoses into a tub or other container and turn water ON. make sure you have water flow from BOTH hoses and that one is HOT and the other is COLD. If OK, reconnect to machine. Turn water back ON. Choose a WARM wash.

If you get COLD only, you probably have a bad HOT solenoid - if HOT only you have a bad COLD solenoid. Be sure by:

Shut water off and swap hose connections (hot to cold & cold to hot) and try again.

If you get COLD only, you probably have a bad COLD solenoid - if HOT only you have a bad HOT solenoid. If you get HOT only, you probably have a bad COLD faucet / hose - if HOT only you have a bad COLD faucet / hose.

Replace the bad solenoid as needed. Good luck!

I have a 1985 mercedes benz 300D turbo that will not shut off. i cannot find a vaccuum leak & that leads to me to believe that it is the cut off solenoid. My problem with that is I cannot determine...


Hi carradk,

I just happend to have a similar problem with my 84 300td. I thought that I needed the solenoid as well, however, one of the vacuum hoses was torn. The solenoid can be found next to the injection unit and has several rods connected to it. It also has 2 vacuum hoses connected to the solenoid. I am not sure if your 85 is the same , but I believe it is. If you have the 2 hoses, check for vacuum at the hoses. The hoses run inside the car to the ignition switch as well. You can verify your solenoid is good or bad by applying vacuum using a vacuum pump to the solenoid. If the solenoid is ok the engine should cut off, if not I would suspect it faulty. Double check and make sure the linkage is lubricated, sometimes it dries out and can stick. The solenoid should also have a part number on the side. It is also referred to as a vacuum control shut-off valve.

I took my car to get an emission and the P1105 code occured. MYcar is a 1997 nissan maxima.


P1105 = MAP/BARO Pressure Switch Solenoid Valve

The problem is in the map sensor circuit, it could be solenoid valve. Check the vacum line that goes to the MAP sensor.

From the B14 Factory Service Manual, has a procedure for checking the MAP/BARO solenoid valve when P1105 is tripped. It is rather complex, and you will need a volt meter, but...

1- Warm up the car and pull the vacuum hose connected to the MAP/BARO switch solenoid with the engine idling. There should be vacuum there (~ -20in Hg). If NG, replace the hose.
2- Check the vacuum hose between the Absolute Pressure Sensor and the solenoid for splits/cracks and clogging (blow through it).
3- With the engine off, disconnect the solenoid electrical connector. Turn the ignition switch on. Check the voltage between terminal 2 (brown wire) and ground. It should be 12v (battery voltage). If no voltage, check the 10a fuse #21.
4- Check Absolute Pressure Sensor. Remove the sensor with its wiring connected. (Located near the top of the firewall next to the cruise control actuator [disk-shaped on a bracket]). Remove the hose and turn the ignition on. Voltage between terminal #2 (white wire) and ground should be 3.2-4.8v. Apply a vacuum to the hose and the voltage should be 1-1.4v lower than the first reading. If NG, the sensor is bad.
5- Check the solenoid. Remove the solenoid electrical connector and hoses and check the air passage continuity by applying 12v to the connections. With 12v on, there should be continuity between the two close hose connections, and no connection between the lone connector and the double connection closest to it. With no voltage applied it should be the opposite (no continuity between the close ones, and continuity between the far one and the closest double one). If NG the solenoid is bad.

I hope this help.

Have 2005 trailblazer check engine light on and code they gave me is P0410. secondary air injection sytem. where is this located


If you have a "Air pump installed on your TB then you need to replace pump and or check to make sure that the hose's are all connect to it prior to replacing the pump which is dependisng on which engine you have on the lower left side (passenger)
Models Affected
1999-2003 Chevrolet Blazer, S10
1999-2001 GMC Jimmy
1999-2003 GMC Sonoma
1999-2001 Oldsmobile Bravada
All with 2.2L or 4.3L Engine (VINs 4, H, 5, W -- RPOs LN2, L43, L35)
Condition
Some owners may comment on the check engine light being illuminated. Upon
investigation, the technician may find a DTC P0410 indicating there is a concern in the
secondary air injection system.
Cause
This concern may be attributed to water that may have collected in the AIR pump or the
vent solenoid and frozen or corroded the pump.
Correction
Replace the AIR pump and install a new inlet hose and solenoid tube assembly using
the following procedure:
1. Prep vehicle.
2. Raise vehicle on hoist.
3. Remove shield covering AIR pump.
4. Remove hose and vacuum lines from pump and solenoid.
5. Remove AIR pump inlet hose. Do not re-use.
6. Disconnect electrical connectors from pump and solenoid.
7. Remove pump mounting bolts and pump.
8. Transfer isolators from the old pump to the new pump.
9. Install new AIR pump and bolts to vehicle. Tighten the bolts to 17N·m (12.5 lb ft).
10. Route new hose assembly up between engine and fender. It should come up near
the area between the battery and the coolant bottle.
11. Connect new inlet hose to pump inlet.
12. Connect old outlet hose to pump outlet.
13. Connect electrical connector to pump.
14. Connect electrical connector for solenoid to connector on the new hose assembly.
15. Connect the hose with the white nipple to the vacuum source hose.
16. Connect the remaining hose to the shut off valve.
17. Install shield covering AIR pump.
18. Lower vehicle.
19. Remove coolant reservoir nut nearest the battery.
20. Route new hose assembly between the battery and the coolant reservoir with the solenoid on top.
21. Install the solenoid bracket onto the coolant reservoir stud and reinstall the nut
back into the vehicle.
22. Use a wire tie to keep the new hose assembly away from the engine. On four
cylinder engines, tie to the AIR outlet hose. On six cylinder engines, tie to an
available hole in the radiator fan shroud.

The washer will not fill with cold water. When I try to wash with cold or warm...only hot water will fill the machine.


If it is a hot and cold fill washer, then you must ensure that there is water at the inlet valve, and the valve filter is not blocked.
If that is o/k, then the valve could be faulty.
Also ensure that you have the cold water connected to the cold valve if it is hot and cold fill.
Please rate my solutioin.
Thanks.

I have a ge washer wpsr3120w0aa that leaks water when rinsing


Servicing Water Inlet ValvesIf the washer won't fill or fills very slowly, if it overfills, or if the water is the wrong temperature, the water inlet valves could be faulty. These components are easy to locate and very easy to replace, at little cost. When you suspect an inlet valve is faulty, first check to make sure the water faucets are fully turned on and properly connected to the hot and cold inlets of the valves. Then check the screens in the valves; if they're clogged, clean or replace them. If water doesn't enter the tub, set the temperature control to the HOT setting. If there is no water, set the control to the WARM setting. If all that comes out is cold water, the hot-water inlet valve is faulty. Reverse the procedure to test the cold-water valve, setting the control first on COLD and then on WARM. If the tub overfills, unplug the washer. If water still flows into the tub, the valve is stuck open. In any of these cases, the valves should probably be replaced. To check the valve assembly:


how-to-repair-a-washing-machine-2.jpg
©2006 Publications International, Ltd.
If an inlet valve is faulty, check the water connection and the
valve screens. Try gently tapping the solenoids;
if this doesn't work, replace the inlet valve assembly.

Step 1: Remove the back service panel and disconnect the hot-water and cold-water hoses to the valves.

Step 2: Remove the hoses connected to the valves inside the cabinet. Also disconnect the wires from the terminals. Back out the screws holding the valves to the machine. The inlet valves have solenoids (a coil of wire that carries a current) inside the housing. These can be tested, but chances are the valves are simply worn out.

Step 3: Tap the solenoids with a screwdriver handle. If this doesn't work, replace the entire inlet valve assembly. Repairs usually cost more than a new part. Make sure the replacement valve assembly is exactly the same type as the old one. Install it in reverse order of the way you disconnected the old one.

Troubleshooting Water Leaks

Water leaks in a washer are often difficult to trace. There are many possibilities to look for. The problem could be a loose connection, a broken hose, a cracked component, or a defective seal. It could also be a hole in the tub. If a hole in the tub is the problem, it's usually best to replace the washer.

Most leaks can be eliminated by tightening water connections and replacing deteriorated components. To stop a leak:

Step 1: Check the lid seal. If faulty, replace with a new gasket.

Step 2: Check the hoses at faucet connections. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

Step 3: Check the hoses at water valve connections. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

Step 4: Check the drain hoses. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

Step 5: Check the inlet nozzles. Tighten connections or replace nozzles.

Step 6: Check the splash guard. Tighten connections or replace.

Step 7: Check any plastic valve. Tighten connections or replace.

Step 8: Check the outlet hose to drain. Tighten connections or replace hose.

Step 9: Check the water pump, using the procedures that follow.

Washer tub will not fill with water and cycle timer operation seems erratic.


it's being sucked out by siphoning through your sewer pipe .Probably a siphon problem . Check your drain hose to make sure hose is not stuffed too far down drain and air can get between the hose and the drain pipe . If you have tapped the hose to the drain to keep water from coming out the drain pipe , go to home depot or an appliance parts house , and get a siphon break . When a washer fills , but water level doesn't rise in the machine ,
