Coleman model APW-120 May have frozen while stored over winter the unit is new but water was not completly removed before storage. Problem motor runs continuosly but there is no water pressure I have cleaned screen & nozzel


Answers :

Whar has happened is that your unloader / bypass valve is sticking. This is due to minor corrosion and having water in the unit over the winter. Most of the time they will sanp out it if you do the following:
\015\012
\015\012Add 3 - 4 oz of oil into the water supply connection and briefly and I mean very briefly switch on the unit then right back off. Add more oil to the water supply connection and then let it sit overnight.
\015\012
\015\012Then next day turn the unit on briefly and let it sit another 30 minutes. After this you connect all hoses making sure to purge the air our of the supply hose BEFORE you connect the to the unit. Then once you turn the unit on rapidly trim cycle the wand trigger. Your goal here is to cause a water hammer of the unloader / bypass valve to get the spring and cupped seal to move in the housing. Pause briefly and see if pressure builds then fan the wand trigger again. This can take a few minutes to get it to work but the routine of pausing waiting momentarily and rapidly tripping the wand trigger is what should get the unit going again.
\015\012
\015\012If this does not work you will have to take the unit apart dis-assemble the unloader / bypass vavle on the output side of the pump and remove the corrosion on the spring and the housing.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012Once your done cleaning up the bypass unloader valve before you put it back in the housing place a liberal amount of Lubriplate #105 White Grease on the spring and inside the housing on the mating surfaces. (#105 white grease is available at any Auto Parts store. It is in a 3 - 5 oz plastic tube)
\015\012
\015\012Re-assemble the unloader / bypass valve an it should work like a champ.
\015\012

This problem is intermitten. Kenmore 665 16765690. starting the dishwasher, I hear a motor running. I think it is trying to empty water, however there isn't any water. I will turn the time rotor around to the start again. Sometimes, when I do this the motor running sound has stopped and I hear gurgling sound of water entering. Once this happens, the cycle is good and does well. However, there are times, rotation the timer back to the beginning may take several times, up to about 20 times.

We had a problem with our garbage disposal and it resulted with water leaking from our dishwasher. The disposal is fixed, I removed the excess water from the dishwasher. I tried to run the dishwasher empty to clean it. It runs but then the E-2 alert shows on the control panel meaning high water level. I read in the book that I may have to have a service person do some sort of a reset. Is this correct?

ASKO 1555 dishwasher won't run. The anti flood device motor won't stop running but we've removed all the water. All the lights on the front panel blink in unison and when we hold down the start/cancel button on the front, nothing resets. We can't run our dishwasher.

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!

I have a Maytag MDB7100AWW dishwasher that makes a lot of noise from the motor at the end of the drain cycle. When there is water in the dishwasher it doesn't make any noise and washes well.

I have unscrewed the 3 screws keeping it in place but it seems to be still attached to the motor. How can I remove it?

Water problem Hi, I have a Jenn air DW 711 that does not get water. I checked the following: Water line: I unhooked the water line and it is clear & free flowing.

The motor runs and will drain any water in the tub I put a bucket of water in the tub and the dishwasher immediately drains no matter which setting I choose. Any ideas? Thanks, Steve

Dishwasher is 16 months old. Recently, it won't get tea stains from spoons or cups and there is a white film on plastics. I have run unit once with vinegar. I tried using less detergent and no change (Cascade Complete). (Neighbors using same detergnet on different machine with no problems so it's not the water.) I always select High water temp and air dry on normanl wash. My hunch is that the motor is going bad and therefore it is not pushing the water with enough force.
