These parts are made to be removable by the user, as they need cleaning occasionally.

The most likely source of your problem is bits of food blocking the jests.

Remove the rotor and clear out the jets, this should solve your problem.

If the problem is not solved , call in your local repair man! Good luck.

    depending on the make and model it could also be the pressure diverter valve, Asko, Bosch plus other european brands use a series of valves to re direct wash pressure to one wash arm of the other. These can fail and that is why i asked about the brand and model.

RE Whirlpool Mod WTW8200YW0 top load, there is always soap left on clothes in the washer no matter type and amount of detergent my wife uses. Any ideas?

Check the water suppl lines to make sure they are not hooked up backwards the rinse cycle uses cold water if the temperature sensor detects hot water it will stop power to the log valve if hooked up correctly then place unit in a rinse cycle to see if rinse valve is opening

How to fix keurig b60 not pumping? water

You need to clean the water jets (the sharp hypodermic needle-like jets). Use a straightened paper clip to clean (ream) out the two in removable plastic bottom and one in top. That will fix the problem.

Water does not come out of the top

Typically there is a rubber boot that "joins" up to a water pipe in the rear of the unit when you slide the top rack back into the washer. IS the boot missing or misaligned perhaps?

No hot water

Have you checked the bottom thermostat for power coming to it and out of it. The thermostat may be bad, that would be the first thing to check. Also check the wires coming out of top thermostat to lower one for power it could be the top not suppling the power.

I have 240 volts at thermostat and conection on the tank but nothing at the bottom element. no hot water either

Thermostat may be bad and not suppling power to lower thermostat and element.

Sounds like Thermostat not working properly if no power there..

Do you have power to top element and power going into top of bottom thermostat if it has one.

Blower works and jets do not?

Water jets will not work?? Is your pump on? I would expect to open ports on the top to introduce air to the water stream. Is this the case with your unit?

Engine stalls

I assume your bike has been in storage for awhile...Your engine is running on choke ONLY, that's why when you cover the air inlet it's the same as what the choke does.....your jets in the carb are clogged and will facilitate a removal and cleaning of the carbs my friend.....find a trusted mechanic and you'll be rolling in no time...Good Luck to you......Tim

Not dispersing water all I need is a manual.

I had the same prob. If you have water/soap solution at the upholstery handle, and no water/soap at the front jets, then the jets are clogged. remove the water tank, and you'll see the 2 jets (mine are red) at the front of the machine. Carefully release thw jets by squeezing the 2 tabs on top and lift out. Remove the hose that goes to the jet and clean out the jet (I used a toothpick) and rinse well. I also flushed out the system (hoses) by leaving off the jets and replacing the tanks (water and soap) I filled the soap tank with water too. Then I turned on the machine and let it run for a few minutes (I taped open the lever on the handle) to make it easy on me. Then replace the jets where you took them out, and all should be fine now. I suggest that when your finished using you machine to do your carpets, rinse out the lines with water in both tanks, to prevent soap from drying in the hoses.
