Question about Liberty Sump Pump Jet WaterPowered Back up Sump Pump SJ10

Open Question

I have a Liberty SJ10 water powered backup system. The pump works fine except that when the cycle is finished, it THUMPS HARD like pipes banging in an old house. Sounds like an air lock to me. If so, is there any way to bleed the system. Larry Carola

At this point, opening the access cover is the last thing you do if it is below the water level in the pipes. Your system has a partial blockage in the pipes between the pump and external septic tanks or sewage dump site, that is the reason why when you use the plunger , half of the amount of waste water comes up to the sink and bathtub. You to open up your pipelines to remove blockage , probably tree roots in the pipes.

Water in tub after cycle has finished


On our Kenmore front loader the guy came out and pulled the front lower cover off and opened the large round plug cap and there was the kids paint ball ammo stuck in the pre-pump end. Then he re-set the computer board with his tester. When this happened the second time, I repeated what he did, except I unplugged the unit. It cleared the memory and works fine...

Washing cycle wont finish, has trouble emptying


if it drains into a bucket it should drain into the stand pipe too,does it overflow out of the stand pipe (waste pipe) when draining?if so the pipe is blocked,also how high is the pipe?draining into a bucket might be less on the pump because gravity is helping drain if bucket is on floor,if the pipe is up high it might not be able to push it,there could be something in the drain hose that goes from the tub to the pump if it did drain no problems before,also when you stick the drain hose into the stand pipe if it's tight it might not have enough air getting into pipe to let it drain,fill the washer,put it on drain after you have some water in it,pull the drain hose out to the top of the stand pipe and let it drain,if it drains ok and water is going down pipe with no back up then it's an air problem,hard to say without being there,you're just gonna have to play detective,did you try to hold the bucket up higher than the washer so the water won't siphon out,if the bucket is up higher than the water level in the machine and it drains then you have a problem with the stand pipe or air gap problem.

How high does the pump have to lift, in feet from the water in the sump to the highest point of the piping?
While the pump is running, what is your municipal water pressure near the sump pump?
You saw it work in the store, were those conditions different?

Maytag Neptune model # mah6500aww: makes banging noise and causes machine to move


A loud banging sound in the pipes is usually caused by a water hammer effect. Water hammer sounds are caused by a valve closing in the system, and yet the water in the pipe is still flowing because of its kinetic energy. The banging happens as the water hits the valve that prevents it from going any further. If the kinetic energy is great enough, it can actually cause a pipe to burst or explode at the end. If a valve is closed near the beginning or in the middle of a system, the water keeps flowing after that point, and it can actually create a vacuum. This vacuum can cause a pipe to implode if the stress is too great. Roaring type noises may be coming from a spin bearing. This bearing probably had the grease washed from it because of a tub seal leak.
Squeaking sounds in a new washer are usually caused by the new parts getting broken in, and will usually go away after several washes.
The sounds of water gurgling, slurping, or sloshing during a spin cycle are usually caused by the drain pump pushing the water out of the washer tub.
Too much water pressure can cause a whistling or squealing sound. Adjust the hot and cold intake water valves to relieve this sound.
Metallic clinking sounds during spin or agitation may be the result of drive train components meshing during speed changes or after a pause.
Swishing or swooshing type of sounds may be caused by water and suds trapped between the tub and basket during a spin cycle, and will usually clear up as the water is drained from the washer
