Hi again!

Yes. I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking filters and motors ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Bosch Nexxt 700 Series Washer, water from cold supply does not dispense into detergent tray


Make sure that the cold supply is on and/or the supply hose is not crimped or clogged. Other than that it can be a control panel issue in the unit itself. But first eliminate the basic things.

1) I would contact BOSCH, or a service technician:
Tankless are affected by many internal and external factors and can be a combination of factors:
http://www.boschhotwater.com/HelpfulResources/TechnicalSupport/BoschAquaStarModels/2400ESTechSupport/Troubleshooting/tabid/1295/Default.aspx

2) Google search 'bosch tankless water heater fixya' to see cross section of problems/solutions: .
For example:
http://www.fixya.com/support/p949576-bosch_1600h_lp_liquid_propane_aquastar_a/solutions

3) Read manual for yearly maintenance protocol.
For example, tankless should be de-limed each year.
a) U-tube search for 'de-lime tankless water heater'
b) Open following link with photos of de-liming in downloadable pdf format
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Delime-tankless-water-heater.pdf

5) All costs are energy.
You can also add simple tank-type water heater that can be turned on when tankless is offline.

I have an 03 polaris 330 magnum 4x4 it worked fine than one day i had to keep the choke on to keep it running took carb apart cleaned all jets etc started it back up worked fine then it didnt put choke on...


Sound like the needle and seat are dirty. Also check the fuel strainer / filter for debris. Usually if the needle and seat are dirty so is the filter / strainer & bowl.

Needle and seat item(s) 24 and 24 original factory Parts manual under carb. at the dealer:

(called float valve in description)

Sounds like the float valve is either not closing or is dirty and not allowing carb to fill to the proper level. i.e causes fuel starvation AND carb over filling intermittently. You can clean the needle and still have a bad seat for the needle.

Find and replace or clean the fuel filter also. If your carb has a manifold and nut on the side of it for the fuel manifold remove the nut (actually a bolt type thing) and clean the strainer inside the manifold.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Bosch dishwasher SHU4326uc/u12 is leaking from the door. How to change low door sealer?


I have had the same problem and finally stumbled upon the answer today!

If you are looking inside your dishwasher, look mid way up the right side wall and there is a valve/hole...if that hole is covered up (e.g. cutting board, ect) it will cause water leakage.

Weird huh? But that recommendation is coming straight from the Bosch headquarters in Canada. I would not have believed it otherwise, but I have read this solution twice, and now myself, have not had a leak since I stopped placing things over that hole! My model is SHU3326UC.

I have a water pressure problem with a Grohe Lady Lux Cafe faucet


I solved the problem by unscrewing the part of the handle which attaches to the "pullout" braided cord. There was another strainer in there which has some debris which was blocking the water flow.

Dishes are not clean due to insufficient water. Arms are clean, strainer is clean, water supply is OK,some soap is still in opened dispenser


Disassembled solenoid, found plugged inline strainer (caused by water shut-down in building to replace recirc. pump) Pulled and flushed filter basket, problem solved. Solenoid must be removed to access filter which is in sol. body. I hope this can help anyone who does'nt have a tech manual or flow diagram.

make certain that there is water coming into the d/w if so and you are sure that the solenoid on the water valve energizes then its possible that the strainer on the water valve might be clogged if so its going to take a bit of work to remove and clean the strainer and reasemble it are you confident .
