Hi there, Jet king 100 hot wash - Not used for many months, wondering why water is coming out of a brass pipe directly underneath. The brass pipe has an alan key screw end. Water runs through, the system, powerworks, does this sound like a seal has gone? All the best Nick.

SOURCE: Hoover D73 Dishwasher water comes comes and goes, no washing

this is a problem with the timer programme at the end this can be replaced but can be tricky to do your self the water should drain freely out of dishwasher if you feel confident enough taking the back off try finding the drain pipe because uselly these get blocked with either the food off the plates and it can get blocked with limescale if it hasnt been used for a while then the mess has buitl up and set hard if you can get the drain pipe off try running some bleach through it but make sure you clean all the bleach off before putting it back on otherwise everything will smell of bleach this is the only sollution it does sound like the drain p[ipe is blocked the dishwasher will cut off if the water raises in the bottom it does this as a safety feature to stop your kitchen from flooding it is more than likely a blocked pipe so check this properly and the drain in the bottom of the dishwasher as the water shouldnt just sit their it should be draining all the time but i would say clean all pipes properly before you do anything else hope this is some help......................

SOURCE: hot water coming out of overflow pipe on my vulcan everhot water

Assuming you are talking about the temperatur/pressure relief valve, it is stuck open.

1. Turn off gas or electric to water heater
2. Close water supply to water heater
3. open hot water faucet on nearest fixture to depressurize hot water system.
4. close tpr valve (you may have to push in on the center spine. It may be resistant to closing from sediment. If so, opening and closing several times may solve that issue.

Once you get the tpr valve closed, close the faucet and open the supply valve. If the tpr stays closed, go ahead and turn on the gas/electric and re-light pilot and turn on control etc.

If the TPR blows again, you will need to replace it. YOu can buy a new one at any plumbing supply store. Shut down the heater again, drain a bit of water out using the valve on the bottom of the tank. there is probably copper pipe connected to the TPR valve which you may have to cut or maybe can just unscrew. The TPR threads out of the tank, install the new valve (make sure to use pipe dope or teflon tape.

SOURCE: Hot water goes into cold water washes

It is normal for the machine to cycle between hot and cold water when filling even if selecting a cold cycle. The reason for this is because even a cold cycle requires the water temperature to be 78F for the soap to break up efficiently.

During the cold months the water in your pipes is probably less than 78F so the machine will need to add some hot water to bring it up to this temperature. Basically, it is adding cold and then hot water to maintain a temperature in the tub of 78F for cold water cycles.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

SOURCE: no hot water

When you adjust the dial to mix the hot and cold for your desired liking, it goes into a mixing chamber before going to the shower head, im asumming your issue is within the mixing chamber.

5 year old Waste King AH-780-UL Quick&Hot Instant Hot Water Dispenser produces white residue in the dispensed hot water. What is causing this; what remedies are recommended? i took out faucet and the...

well the tank is made of brass and copper. That takes away that it is the unit. It sounds like lime buildup. Now what does happen as water goes into the tank and heats up lime will remain in the tank. Then as time goes buy it then starts to get to heavy and relesase itself and then the clog effect it taking place.

the best thing you can do now is reverse flow water into the tank and wash it out, its call beack washing. Yu can buy some products to put in at first to help break it down and then you get ore out.

With the new whole house units they now install a vakve set that has two way valves so you can backwash the tanks and stay ontop of the lime.

You must be asking where does the linme come from, well it starts at the well where the water department gets there water. then it goes into a filtering system and they use a lime to act as the filter agent then it heads out to the system and coats the pipes all along the way. I have cut 16 inch pipe and there was solid inch of lime caked inside.

I tell many people if yuo looking inside the water system yo would never drink the water. You might want to think about getting a whole house filter system to slow down the kime that geets in.

Thanks so much be safe in all that you do.

Hot cold water

Question is not 100% clear.
System is not described.
Hot water will come out of cold tap of you have recirculation system.
Without a direct return line, the cold water pipe is filled with hot water.
So hot water is available immediately, but you wait for cold water when recirculation system is on.

If you install a direct return line, then cold water line is not used for recirculation, and cold water is available immediately.
Another possible solution, depending on problem, is to use timer instead of thermostat to control recirculation system. Using the timer means hot water is inside the cold pipe only when the timed operation is running. This will let you have immediate cold water.
Link above has information how to choose timer vrs thermostat.

If cold water never arrives no matter how long you run the hot tap, then check-valve on recirculation system is not working, or you have crossover on single-handled faucet, or both.

Boiler heats up but water only comes out of one head

If you remove the top panel of the espresso machine and look at the groupheads, there will be a large nut on the top, within that nut there is a microfilter and a small jet(make sure the water to the machine is turned off and the machine is cooled before removing nut).The jet might be clogged(I have actually seen sand in some models), use a paper clip or pipe cleaner to clear, then slowly turn on the water valve to flush out chamber, or use a wet/dry vac. After you have cleared jet if you still have no water flow, move to the solenoid(black electrical box connected to group, on your machine I think it is under the group you might to remove the front panel to reach it). Place a finger on the box and run the group you will feel the magnet activating, this tells you that the solenoid is working. Remove box it has a 14mm nut on the discharge, once again make sure water is turned off, using a wrench remove the silver pipe fitting that is connected to the square brass fitting(brass fitting sits on the group with 4 screws holding it in place some manufactures uest 2 screws at opposite ends). When you remove the silver part of solenoid turn on water slowly, if no water shoots out then use a paper clip to clear out the middle hole in the square brass connection.

Water is not hot enough

What a great energy saver water through another tap in the house in order to fill the pipes with hot water! I have the same problem; cannot even get WARM water in my tub. I have 2 solutions: #1, on my incoming water pipes are regular faucet handles which I am going to attach a hose on the hot side that will reach into the washer and manually mix the temperature. #2, purchase an old refurb washer at a used appliance store that HAS a hot-water setting and hope they will take the "wonderful, new energy saver" as a trade. There are just some times you really need HOT water. I can't imagine washing diapers in cold, although I haven't had to do that in many years. Energy saving factory settings: capital "B", capital "S"!!!

Washing maching won't rinse in cold water

hi is this hot and cold water piped machine? ie two connections on rear of machine for hot and cold pipes ? if so are your pipes connected properly on machine and the water supplies? if cold supply is connected to hot supply then wash inlet allows water in washer then washes in cold? but when rinse is due? the elec valve that has hot water pipe connected?? is failing to open allowing water flow of hot on rinse so advise recheck pipes for flow of water from both? when disconnected from machine if flow ok then possible valve blocked/faulty hope you can understand above? if you can give more info on your machine it would help to offer a remedy?

Hi, It sounds like you have the two water pipes fitting on the wrong connectors on the back of the machine.

IE: The hot water pipe (RED connector) on the cold water inlet on the back of the machine (BLUE connector)

Is should be red to red and blue to blue.

Initial set up WMA 30

Hey mike mate problem with the washing machine is minor, however your gonna have to get the top off the machine to get to it.

It seems to me that the plastic tubing connected to the pressure swtich has come away. OR is damaged leaking air. However it is common for it to come off in delivery especially when its an old machine and has no transit brackets.

Theres only two screws to undue, their near the front on either side of the machine.. located behind two oblong caps. remove caps remove screws and push the top back and off.. the swtich is directly behind the soap draw. it has two single wires and two wires on a plug attached.. DONT REMOVE THESE.
Check to see if a plastic tube is connected to it and running down to the filter compartment. most likey it aint hence causing it to overflow..
