I have an ancient Hotpoint top-load washer. It has stopped filling all of a sudden. When I turn it to cold, hot or warm water, it just starts spinning (which it usually doesn't do until after it has filled) and does not fill up with water. It will shoot water in for the rinse cycle, so it's not a water issue. Any ideas?
That sounds like the water level switch is stuck in the 'full tub' position. Open the top (insert a thin bladed putty knife into the two front corner joints and push the knife rearwards--if you look into the joint, you can see a spring latch at each ... Cars & Trucks
I have a 2003 dodge stratus SE, the other day it started overheating. I replaced the thermostat and it was fine for a day, then it started overheating again. I saw that my coolant was completely empty and notice it was leaking so i thought it was the water pump but when i filled it up with water to take me down the street it started overheating but all the water was still there and smoking, my radiator isnt leaking and i dont hear my timing belt squealing. Could it still be my water pump or some

I've had my car overheating for some time now. I've had 2 mechanic confirm it's not the thermostat, but they didn't go any further. They said when car over heated and when I filled with water the line didn't get bled. Okay...bled the line twice, after filling, still overheating. Popped the hood myself and this is what I observed. Started engine and after approx. 20 minutes the water is reservoir started bubbling and I heard that all to familiar sound of the pounding under the hood when it o

Low water I'm not sure if this is a problem or just the way it works. At the start of the wash the water comes on for a few seconds, then the drum starts to rotate. after a bit the water turns on and off a few times at about 1 sec. bursts,then after a while some more water is put in. In the end I feel that not enough water is ever put in the tub to really do a good wash or rince.
If your car is a bmw, and you are talking about the washer fluid reservoir, check the pump that attaches to the hoses which go to the nozzles on your hood, it may need a little rotation while applying inward pressing to make it fit if there is a leak ... Cars & Trucks
My 99 Plym Gr Voy started to overheat. I added water to the water reservoir and radiator. It seemed to be fine for a week or two, then the fan belt broke. I had that replaced. It started to overheat again and the car makes a noise that sounds like an animal is crawling inside the engine or something like a vacuum suction sound. I checked under the hood to make sure no animal was in there but noticed the water reservoir was empty. I filled it but in a few hrs the water was gone. I am finding a wa

I have a 1997 Buick Regal and it has a problem with keeping the engine cool. I used to always just put coolant or water in the reservoir and that would work and some of the water would leak out after I had stopped the car so I would just put more in later. However recently the reservoir seems to have become clogged so I started putting water directly into the radiator. But even that isn't keeping the car cool. I can completely fill the radiator and still with in a few minutes of starting the dri

The back drivers side floorboard was filling up with water while it was raining on Thanksgiving.

Where is the starter located. my daughter's car overheated the engine cut off, i filled it with water alot of the water flowed out from the reservoir brownish with mini explosions. i pushed the car home because it wouldn't start. i try to start it and i hear a faint click, i jacked up the car and i can't find the starter, i'm thinking maybe the starter is bad so i'll take it in to be checked.
The starter is located on the driver side of the vehicle. Right in the middle of the oil pan and the exhaust. Caution when removing. The stator has a long out put shaft and doesnt really enjoy being removed from the bell houseing. ... 2002 Dodge Intrepid

I changed the water pump and belt at the same time 6 months ago.., now, then i got" fill radiator" on computer screen on dash... when i take the radiator cap off of engine to check, it starts to overfill and then i cover the radiator. what do i do? the over fill container is full. Did i need to purge the radiator after i changed the water pump? If so what do i do??
Take the cap off and let any excess fluid drain into a container. Don't let it run on the ground because pets and small children find antifreeze delicious but toxic, possibly fatal. Run the engine to purge any air pockets, then after the thermostat ... Chevrolet Venture
I have a 2008 Ford Fusion with approximately 55K miles, have had one instance where the car would not start - turned key on "Click","Click", "Click" - checked battery, battery was low on water - filled the cells with distilled water and charged - started fine for a day - now I have a "check engine" light. My question - what is a quck way to determine if it is your battery or alternator?

My 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette started overheating into the red yesterday. I drove it to the nearest gas station about two minutes after it started overheating. waited for it to cool down, then filled with water. Drove it home fine. I noticed at home though it had a small leak under it and thought maybe it was just from when I filled it at the gas station. First flush was ok, no leaks. during the second flush a pretty good trickle came out the passenger side of the engine. I thought it was
