Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a Kelvinator MW52-K for years no problem.....until now.Cold water entering very very slowly ( sounds like a spray ).I have removed the pipe run into tub no problems there all clear. No problem with hot water. Where the cold water pipe(female) screws onto the plastic (male'bit') I can see a filter which appears to be fixed to the inside of the 'bit'. It seems clean and I have blown into it but dare not try to prise it off.Can I buy a complete valve and try to replace. What do you think?

SOURCE: Cold water only trickling into my washing machine

unfortunately it sounds like you have a stuck plunger in the cold side of your water inlet valve.if the screens are clear and your water pressure is good,thats what you have.

Yes, the only other thing I would do and you may have done this is to put the hose directly over in the washer tub and turn the water on to check the flow. If that's good then replace the water valve.

If you checked the screens at the water inlet valve and they were not clogged, then you probably have a defective water inlet valve and will have to replace it. Hope this helped.

How and where does the water go in

The cold water enters the top, but the water is not released into tank at the top. The cold water goes through a "dip tube" This takes the cold water to the bottom of the tank. If you dip tube fails, or breaks, your faucet temperature will slowly drop as you use hot water (vs giving you 60% of tank at full temperature before temperature starts dropping) In normal operation, the cold water is released near bottom of tank, the hot water rises to top, and comes out of the top of the tank.

Water will not come into the washer but moter is running.I have checked all hoses

shut taps and disconnect hose and place in bucket then make sure water comes out of hose by slowly opening taps.
If ok check if the electric valves open by setting first cold then hot on temp button. if hot water only then cold valve is faulty. you should hear a click sound from valves usually situated under control panel. if not then unplug machine, remove control panel and measure resistance on electrical connections of cold and hot valves with ohm meter at around 15 ohm if they are marked 12 v
meaning they operate on 12 volts from the control panel computer.
if no ohm reading or in the mega ohms replace valve. you can swap the wires between cold and hot if cold valve is faulty and use the hot valve for cold wash only then you wont have hot water.
If both valves ohms around 15 ohm then plug in and measure voltage at valve when machine starts you should get 12 volts on valves.( be careful for mains high voltage from mains wire entering panel when measuring keep hands clear of mains voltage and any water from panel.
If no voltage may then be computer panel faulty. check connections from valve connectors to panel and connectors on panel may be loose if not check voltage on panel where wires connect to computer panel if no voltage then make sure the water level valve is not stuck in closed position that will tell the computer the machine is full of water. just remove one or two wires from the level control valve (the level valve is a round plastic valve about the size of a small cup and has wires and a thin plastic pipe connected to it )and start machine if water enters then replace level valve if not maybe its computer board fault, replace. (you can test level valve with ohm meter and blow into the place where the pipe is connected by removing pipe it should click and ohm meter should show around 0.2 ohms when blowing and high ohms when not blowing.) some click twice as they have two levels.

How to shut off until plumber replace the leaking pipe

Find the cold water supply pipe to the tank. Most are labeled, but if unsure - turn on the closest hot water faucet and feel the temperature of the pipes connected to the water tank. Follow the coldest pipe back (moving away from the tank) until you reach the first shut off valve on that pipe and shut it off completely.
No more cold water will fill the tank and cause water to spray / leak from the pipe.
There is no need to shut off the gas really, as it is controlled by the temperature sensor on the tank - but if you insist, you should find either a flexible pipe - or a black iron pipe that enters a controller. Most have a dial marked "OFF" "ON" & "PILOT". Simply twist the dial from ON to OFF and the gas will be shut off.
Good luck!

Leaking at cold water intake

If your unit is leaking from the joint where the pipe actually meets the tank, the only solution is to remove the pipe, check the threads to make sure they aren't all beat up and scratched badly, then re-wrap with teflon tape clockwise while you're looking at the pipe's open end. Three wraps is usually sufficient,, then re-insert into the threads and tighten with a medium pipe wrench. Tighten until you can't turn the pipe any more.

Car is overheating. When I turn the heat on it comes out cold! Overflow tank is half full and both radiator fans are working/on. I see no leaks on hoses or radiator or around those areas. I just am...

This really sounds to me like you may have a bad water pump, especially if your heat is blowing cold. You can try a few cheaper alternatives before you you shell out the dough for a new pump, though. First, you can try caanging the thermostat. This will be located in a metal elbow where the upper radiator hose enters the engine block. It is a very easy process, just make sure you pay close attention to the orientation of the old thermostat when you remove it. Second, you can try to "burp" your cooling system to remove any air pockets that may be present. There should be a bleeder port either on the thermostat housing or on the upper heater pipe. This is a hard pipe running from the thermostat housing or engine block into your heater coil. To find the heater coil, look for two small cooling lines entering the firewall side-by-side. Trace these back to find the upper heater pipe. Once you locate the bleeder port, with the engine running and up to full temperature, slowly and carefully open the port and see if any air shoots out. If air shoots out, leave the port open until you get a steady stream of water, then close the port. Wait a minute or two and do it again. Repeat this process until you get a steasy stream of water each time you open the port. If neither of these work, it's time to get your pump checked.

Kenmore 80 series model #110.26882503 fills slowly

For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

How do you drain all the water from the resavoir of a Bunn VPS?

Hello. Take the funnel out, under it is the spray head, remove it, unplug the unit, take it over to a sink and tilt the end that the spray head was on into the sink slowly, the water in the tank will drain out through the spray head pipe until mostly empty. You also could take the top off, take the tank lid off, and use a shop vac to vacuum all the water off, or just pour it out, probably faster, but messier :) If you need information on you unit, go to , chose commercial, and then on the left, choose coffee, and pour overs.

Hope that helped, and thank you.

Hotpoint Aquarius WF100

Firstly, there should be only one hose, always connected to the cold supply.
The unit will heat the water to the setting you choose for the wash (40 - 60 - etc)

Secondly, if the unit is leaking water, try turning down the cold pressure, this will slow the supply pressure to the unit and prevent spray out from the detergent drawer.

Your supply tap should have an isloting tap on it, adjust this until it sullpies water at an acceptable rate.
Do this by feeding the hose into a bucket/basin and tweak it until it pours out - not sprays out.
This should alleviate any leaks around the machine.

Hope this helps.

Cold stopped working

Check the strainer in the cold water inlet line. Make sure it is not plugged. Then,put the cold water line into a bucket and open the valve slowly until water comes out. If water flows freely, it's probably the cold water solenoid. It's pretty easy to replace.
If not, check all valves upstream, check for a collapsed hose, or mineral build up in the pipe (galvanized pipe)
