Whirlpool Duet Washer - Bad Bearing?

I have a Whirlpool Duet front load washer, knocking/rattling at high speeds during spin. Turning the drum by hand does not create any grinding sounds. But, there have been a couple other very...

Just an update - I have been watching the pressure to ensure there is no leak. It has held steady 16-18 psi on the gauge on the boiler. So far, the gurgling noise has been eliminated at this...

Well it's been brought up to 22 psi on the newer Winters gauge and reads 15 psi on the boiler gauge. I should note that there's not much pressure change from cold to hot, so I don't think the system...

Sounds good. There's still the question of which gauge is more accurate - 18 psi on the boiler gauge will look like 23-24 psi on the Winston one attached to the drain valve. I'm not that concerned...

It may be 12 psi cold and 14 psi hot - the gauge is not very easy to read on the boiler and it isn't very accurate. I'd bet it's at 12 psi cold. I don't think more water is coming in; there is no...

I do not have access to photos at the moment, but I can tell you my boiler is attached to the expansion tank via upward sloping pipes. There is not an airtrol device in the tank but I do not have a...

Well, it didn't take long for the sound to come back so more air got there somehow.

I have an expansion tank, not a bladder tank, so there is always air in the system. I was under the impression...

Updates

A few updates. Thoughts, comments?

1) the pressure dial on the boiler reads 12 psi (as does the label on the pressure reducing valve). But, I hooked up a pressure gauge to the drainage bib and...

Conventional steel tank. Yes, it's the riser from basement to the 2nd floor loop. They left a 1 1/2" riser in place and connected 3/4" copper to both ends. Hopefully this weekend I can play with...

180, 12 psi. There are no automatic air removal devices - the system has an expansion tank.

Everyone's favorite topic - gurgling pipes

Thanks in advance for any ideas the group may have. I am dealing with gurgling in a hot water stand pipe for baseboard heat. I thought it was air trapped at the top, so I had a bleeder valve...

Pics & Videos

The noise is louder from the heat exchangers themselves; the flow control devices are a few feet away and not making any sound I can tell. I have a video of the noise (only 1 MB) but don't see a way...

Boiler Kettling

A common topic here on the forum - boiler noise. I thought it was air noise waking me up at night upstairs, at the high point of the system next to my bed. But with investigation I believe the...

My water heater is set low enough that scalding is not a concern with hot unmixed water so I agree with you but if the product exists, I may as well buy it if I change temperature settings.

Here's a shot of the valves; I didn't see any brand names but I do have an access panel behind the wall. Perhaps it is imprinted on the brass manifold? Is it possible the handle itself is slipping...

Shower valve failure?

I have a 2 handle shower/bath faucet with spigot diverter to run the shower. A few times in the past 2 weeks, but not every time, when I turn off the hot handle, the hot water just keeps running. ...

Yeah, that what it is. A copper female threaded adapter for the galvanized pipe running up to the shower head. It's soldered to the brass vertical. Well, regardless, I can run that flow test...

Luckily for me, the brass valve body and supply pipes are accessible behind an access panel, so I don't have to open up the wall to run this test or replace the valve body (if needed). I agree if I...

Bumping thread as I've been thinking about this. Curious as to opinions here. As my 1st post stated, flows out of the bathtub spigot are the same whether I open hot/cold/both valves. So even if my...

I'll be able to avoid using the separate transformer to run the stats, but great explanation anyways. I'll connect the Comm in the Taco SR502 to the C terminal tonight. That "should" be it. Thanks...

Makes sense to me. Good thing I didn't wire into the 24 VAC! I'll check the draw of my thermostats to be sure I stay under the 15va before installing the 2nd one.

So, out of personal curiosity,...

Ah. Obviously. It all just clicked in my head. Are both terminals in the upper left 24 V so I could run two C wires for two thermostats? I assume so, because Taco obviously took the time to lay...
