    Water not in dispensers. I turned off the water for 7 min turned back on and was not running into drum. I believe the spout it is dripping from helps balance the load if its off? It is in between the light and where the water runs out of the dispenser cups from. Does that makes sense? Anyways it is not running now. But I dont want to have to turn off the water everytime this happens. Sometimes it still runs out of there and sometimes not.

    I only turned off the cold water supply - forgot to mention that.

  • jenlynn_30 Mar 19, 2011

  • jenlynn_30 Mar 19, 2011

1.) Open the dispenser drawer and see if you see water running into it.
Please Post result.

2.) Now turn off the water supply valve....this supplies water to the back of the washing machine hoses. This is not on the machine. Simply follow the water hoses to the connections that are supplying water to the unit.

3.) If water has stopped entering the unit at the location you noted on your post, then turn on only one valve of the water supply that you have just turned off.Check to see if water is entering the location you posted.( give it 5 minutes ) If not turn on the other valve you have turned off...check to see if water is now entering the machine location that you posted (give it 5 minutes)

Please post results to all questions.

Thanks....

    Please turn on the cold water supply and turn off the hot water supply...Is water now running back into the unit?

    Sounds as if the water valve inside of the washer is going bad.

    Sometimes this valve when going bad will not close all the way allowing water to trickle through to the machine.

    Do you know how to use a volt meter?

Miele w4840 door rubber seal relacement


i just replaced rubber gasket on miele w4840 it took lots of patience! there is a retaining wire on spring on front part this is easily removed. next there is a light and water line about 11 o'clock take this apart and unhook water line in order to remove these from gasket. next there is a locking wire on right side at 9 o'clock. i was able to get a flat head screwdriver and loosen the screw you can open about 1 -1.5 inch at this point the rubber seal can be removed. you have to carefully (painstakingly) put the new seal on. make sure everything is lined up right before replacing the wires took me about an hour as the gasket is difficult to put on back part on drum

Hotpoint washer/dryer wd440 door wont open stopped mid cycle


  • Disconnect the washing machine from the mains supply
  • The door seal is held in place on the door frame by a thin metal clamp band. This band is held in place at the top of the door seal with two plastic halves that clip together. To remove, insert a flat bladed screwdriver between the two halves and gently lever or prize them apart and then unpeel the door seal from the door frame
  • Remove the soap dispenser drawer
  • Remove the timer knob and control panel
  • Undo the 3 screws that were behind the control panel and the 3 screws at the base of the front panel under the door
  • Remove and carefully place the front panel to one side
  • The pressure chamber bottle is attached to the bottom of the tub at the end of the small rubber tubing coming from the door interlock. Remove it and thoroughly clean it out, paying attention to the small hole where the rubber tubing is attached
Warning: The pressure system is how the washing machine controls the water levels. Disturbing it can cause water leaks, or even overfilling and flooding if the job isn't done properly.

Leaking water


When your Maytag top load washing machine leaks water, you will need to check the following parts until you find where the leak is coming from.




The water valve: The first place you need to check is behind the washer. Check the two fill hoses and the water mixing valve.
Check for pinholes or cracks on the plastic body of water mixing valve.



Remove the front panel : The next thing you need to do, is to remove the front panel so you could see the tub and the hoses.
Set the washer on the regular cycle and turn it on so it could start filling.
Use a drop light and check all the hoses under the washer as the washer is filling.
Make sure to keep your hands away from any moving parts.


The pump : If the hoses are ok, check the pump for leaks. When the bearings in the pump wear out, that is when the pump will get noisy and that could cause your Maytag washing machine to leak water.


The stem & seal : Another place that the washer could leak water from, is the stem & seal on the holding tank.
When washer leaks water from the stem & seal, the water will leak down the center of the transmission.
When the stem & seal need to be replace, the tub bearing has to be replace at the same time. This is an expensive repair if you have to pay someone to do it. If you do it yourself it will cost you about $110.

My ford ranger keeps running hot. I can drive it and after about 30min. there is not water in the radiator.


Ok ~ Things to check are (simplest first)
1. Examine radiator cap for damaged or leaking seals. (Have it tested at your radiator place.
2. Check for water leaks. At the radiator, rubber hoses including heater hoses. Also cabin heater radiator core.
3. Top up radiator and run engine without the cap fitted. Blip the throttle and see if any bubles or traces of gas appear when you look in the top tank. During this test, check that the top tanks turns "hot" as the thermostat opens. If not, remove and test/replace thermostat.
4. Have a "cylinder leakage test" done at your repair shop.
5. Have the cooling system pressure tested.
6. Add coooling system ceaner to the system and drive for about 30mins. Next, reverse flush radiator and engine block.

This list is in the order you need to procede, and next step should be performed only after the the preceding step tested ok.

The washer won't fill with cold water. Disconnected the hose from the washer and turned on the cold water, no water. How do I replace the valve in the wall?


your first step would be go and buy a new valve. by that way, buy a roll of teflon tape as well (the white, very thin one). then turn off your main water valve and open up one working valve to release the pressure then take a bucket and place it under the valve to replace now screw off the old valve. remeber hwo it was fitted. now take some of the teflon tape and wind it arround the new valves mounting thread. this will do the sealing, so the water does not take its way thru the mounting. now screw in the new valve. pull it tight. take a second view wether you did it right. keep the bucket under the valve open main water valve. check your new valve. everything sealed? water running when open? YES? Great! You did it. dont forget to remove the bucket, you are done

Loud rubber squeal sound with new clothes washer water seal.


its the wrong seal. do not lubricate it at all rubber sweals with any kind of petrolium product. many door boots look right for the model but will be thicker then needed. and will cause rubber to hit the basket.

Water Leak


While I do agree with eagle338 that water could be leaking from the fill hoses and the pump area, the rest of the instructions apply more for a top load Maytag washer, instead of the front load Whirlpool washer you reported.

Most likely you will have a hole in the front boot area (grey rubber seal around where the door seats). If you find such a leak, send me a note back and I'll write you up a how to to change it out.

The second most common source of leaks come from holes in the tub. This is the white outer part that holds most of the water in the machine. You will easily be able to see it when you remove the panel as listed above in the clarification instructions.

On rarer occasions, you can have something stuck in the fill tube that goes from the dispenser to the tub. Somehow small items become lodged in there. There will be a water inlet about the 10 o'clock position of your boot (grey rubber seal). Probe gently in there with your finger to see if a sock or similiar item got spun into this area.

Washer leaks on on the floor when using a large load setting.


The leaks in a washing machine could be coming from many different places in the washer.

The first place you need to check is behind the washer, check the two fill hoses and the water mixing valve.

The next thing to do is to remove the front panel, set the washer on the regular cycle and turn it on to start filling.

Use a drop light and check all the hoses under the washer as the washer is filling. Make sure to keep your hands away from any moving parts.

If the hoses are ok, check the pump for leaks. When the bearings in the pump wear out, that is when the pump will get noisy and that could cause your Maytag top load washing machine water leaks.

Another place that the washer could leak water from, is the stem & seal on the holding tank. When washer leaks water from the stem & seal, the water leaks down the center of the transmission.

When the stem & seal need to be replace, the tub bearing has to be replace at the same time. This is an expensive repair if you have to pay someone to do it. If you do it yourself it will cost you about $110
