"Solenoid". No, you probably don't need one. You shouldn't even HAVE one.

I suspect strongly that you need to prime the new pump. There should be a priming plug on the top of the pump. Remove the plug and pour water into it. Replace the plug quickly and turn on the pump immediately.

You may need to do this several times before the pump starts drawing water. You can hear the change in pump sound when it starts moving water.

It does help, while you're priming, to close any valve you find between the pump and the pressure tank. As soon as the pump draws water, slightly open that valve or the pump will cycle on & off very rapidly. When the pressure tank is pretty full of water (you're getting fairly significant pressure on the gauge), open that valve fully.

I always liked to have a globe valve on top of the pump with a bell reducer and cap above that for priming purposes. The globe valve permits VERY fast pump repriming, and the bell reducer acts like a funnel, making it easy to pour water in. With the globe valve closed (normal operation), the cap doesn't even have to be tight - I need no tools to prime my pump that way.

Floor Jack 6ton

Mine periodically won\'t run and I have to clean out the pump. The water exit pump/line has cup with holes in it that serves as a filter to prevent object going thru the pump. The little cup on mine fills up with coins, restricts enough water flow, and the washer will no longer run. Take off the access panel below the door to get to it - the pump/hoses are to the right side. There are either 2 or 3 hose clamps that have to be removed to separate the hose connections from the pump - pain to get to, But with the hoses off, the cup is easily cleaned out. I replaced one of the stock clamps with a plain old band clamp you tighten with a screw driver - much easier when putting it all back together. Hope this helps...

Bad smell in Bosch nexxt WFMC3200 washer

I have this problem with my Siemens machine, it is due to mainly running low temp washes and bateria building up in the hoses etc. (more prevalent if the machine is connected directly to the sink and not on a stand pipe). I run a 90 degree cycle every 4 weeks with the machine empty except for two capfuls of baby sterilisng fluid (approx half a mug) I buy stores own as it is cheaper than miltons. The first time I did mine I ran the cycle twice to be sure it was cleared out. My machine is six years old and the first smelly signs were when it was about a year old, I run the maintenance wash religiously ever 4 weeks and run a machine descaler such as oust thru every 4-6 months. Hope this helps. Roni. (ps don't be tempted to use bleach as it foams up and can cause more problems!!)

My GE space saver stackable washing machine will

Im haveing the same exact problem on the same exact machine... I have taken all the pannels off, and drained the water. I was wondering if there may be a way that the pump lost it's prime and needs to be re-primed? (wishfull thinking on my part.) There was no indication that the pump burnt out, it just stopped working instantly with no symptoms. The other functions seem to work, it will agitate the laundry, and then will just stop when it comes to the pump cycle. Any help is appreciated. Thank You.

I have swimming pool but it dosent have drainage so its short of big water tank, i want to keep it filled with water ,,what shouod i do to keep that watre clean and smell free

LOL,, well if your serious about that then a carbon fish tank filter unit, and an aquarium air pump and aerator stone should do nicely, if you actually want to turn your Kenmore swimming pool into a washing machine again then you will half to look underneath the unit and find the water pump, follow the drain hoses, this pump may be belt driven or have a separate motor to run it, insure the belt is still on and tight or put in drain mode and see if the electric pump is functioning, if all is OK check to see if there is a filter that is plugged, when you made it this far let me know and i will help further good luck

NO water pressure

It sounds like our pump is not priming, or is losing its prime (bad foot valve maybe?). There may also be a blockage on tank outline from some sort of debris that washed out of tank during install.

Stops about half way thru cycle anf error code HF appears

F/H No water detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip not detected.
If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed.


If the control has turned the water valves on and after 8 minutes the flow meter has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off and the error code will flash.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. 
If there is no water in the unit:
1. Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
2. Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves 
3. Verify inlet valve operation 
If there is water in the unit:
1. Verify Drain pump operation
2. Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch 
Verify there is not a siphon problem 
Verify wire harness connections to:Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU) 
Check all hoses for possible leaks 
Verify pressure switch operation

Verify flow meter operation 
Verify CCU operation.

Washer isn't properly draining in normal wash cycle and start/pause button has to be pushed to restart washer 2-3 times to finish cycle. When cycle finally finishes, a 'drain cycle' has to be run to remove...

remove bottom cover ckd pump for possible restriction..most have acess port on front if not remove hoses also pump impeller may be slipping on shaft or have broken fins
