If the unit is used, sometimes crud will cease the unit. you could clean it out real good and see if that helps.

I am not familiar with the unit, but another thought would be to see if there is a mechanism for "self priming" and make sure no hoses are kinked etc...

I hope you have better luck.

Pump repair


Instructions1 Unplug the electrical cord of the washing machine from the electrical outlet before attempting to repair the water pump.
2 Turn the water supply off at the shut-off valves behind the washing machine by hand.
3 Press in on the end caps of the washer while pulling forward to remove the caps from the control console and locate the screws in the front of the console on each end.
4 Unfasten the screws on the control console with a screwdriver and flip the console back so that it rests on the rear hinges.
5 Unplug the lid switch connector from the top of the dryer near the back, lifting the plug off the metal prongs by hand. Use a screwdriver to pry up the metal clips that are holding the top on the dryer.
6 Lift the top lid off the washer base, set the top out of the way, and locate the water pump at the bottom of the cabinet on the motor shaft.
7 Slide the metal clips off the top of the water pump with a screwdriver and remove the pump from the motor shaft.
8 Place a plastic container underneath the water pump to catch any water from the pump and detach the hoses, unfastening the clamps with a screwdriver.
9 Remove the hoses from the pump, allowing the excess water to drain into the plastic container, and remove the pump from the washing machine.
10 Attach the hoses to the new water pump, securing the clamps with a screwdriver. Place the new pump on the motor shaft, sliding the metal clips back over the pump.
11 Take the plastic container out of the washer cabinet, disposing of the water. Place the top lid of the washer back over the cabinet, securing it with the metal clips on the top.
12 Plug the lid switch connector back into the top of the washer near the back, attaching the connector by hand. Flip the control console back down over the washer, securing the console with screws on the ends.
13 Fasten the end caps back over the control console by hand and turn the water supply back on at the shut-off valves.
14 Plug the electrical cord of the washer into the electrical outlet.

Water dispenser stopped dispensing water but ice maker is still working fine


I had the same problem. Ice maker works fine. Removed the kick plate at the bottom of the fridge to expose the water line. I disconnected it and then pressed the dispense button. Water pumped out of the line so i know water was getting all the way to the freezer door. I went overkill but it worked. I removed the freezer door and placed it outside. (disconnected the power to the door by disconnecting the plug at the top. and then removed two screws/bolts at the top and the door lifts up and off) I set the door on a patio table with the bottom facing up. I picked up some 16 gauge wire ($6 at Home Depot) and ran it up the water tube from the bottom of the door. The bottom is more of a straight shot up the water line. I also took a turkey syringe used to inject juice into a turkey and i shot very hot water up the line with the door upside down. This allowed water to run up the line and unfreeze it if it was frozen. I let it sit outside for 30 minutes and put the door back on and now it works like a champ. The line was either frozen or it was obstructed. The water line is surprisingly small. Took less than an hour and I now have water again. Not tough at all...

My black and decker water cooler makes noise like its boiling water which I know it does but it's much more pronouced and more frequent than before.


Slight boiling noise aside, a loud and unbearable rattling noise plagued my B&D Hot and Cold Water Cooler (top load). DIY Solution: The issue was some sort of copper coil vibrating against the front panel cover (just behind where you would place a glass. This copper colored coil is attached a canister looking thingy ma-bob, with a long black arm that is runs to the bottom right of the back cover. By removing all four screws on the back cover, you may angle (bottom out) the cover enough to gain access to this arm. GENTLY... lift the arm/rod so that the copper coil is no longer touching the front panel (and thus it is free to vibrate without that annoying noise). CAUTION: unplug the unit and ground yourself to avoid shock. Once you can see the coil is no longer touching, plug-er back in and see if the noise has stopped. Perform above at own risk.!!!!!

Dishwasher problem


Symptoms:
Dispenser lid is open. Caked powder at (what would be during normal operation) bottom edge of soap dispenser or caked powder fallen onto dishes or dishwasher bottom. There may be loose powder in rest of dispenser or spilled down inside door or onto dishes underneath dispenser.

Solution:

Keep the area around the soap dispenser lid clear when loading the top tray.

Explanation:
The soap dispenser needs to swing open during the wash cycle. In many dishwashers the top tray has an indentation as wide as the lid of the dispenser. This allows the top tray to be as large deep as possible while still allowing space for the dispenser lid to open. People often pack their dishwasher with things overhanging this gap.

During the wash cycle the catch will release but the overhanging cutlery or crockery prevents the lid from opening all but a few degrees. Some water will splash in but not enough to wash out the soap powder. The soap powder at the bottom of the dispenser will then cake.

When the front door is opened the spring loaded lid, which is partly open, will of course swing fully open and you'll be convinced that the lid opened normally during operation. If this is the problem then if you're very careful and open the door very slowly you can actually hear the lid flip open. Also, depending on when the lid opens, how far it opened during operation and how fast you open the door you may find soap powder spilled down to cover the dishes at the front or down the inside of the door. This happens when you first open the door and obviously there couldn't be loose powder there if the powder had emerged while there was water washing around. Seeing the lid open as you open the door is a lot harder but can be done on some machines.

Before taking anything to bits, check you aren't just loading the machine in such a way that something (for us, it's usually a frying pan) is stopping the soap dispenser from springing open all the way. A.
