Hi vks1,

Your water is coming out into the washer even when you water supply is switched off at the pipe?

Disconnect the washer hose from the water pipe and see if the water still comes out of the water pipe even when the water valve is shut off!
If the answer is YES!

This is a plumbing malfunction.
The valve on your water pipe is not closing completely!
There is a washer in the water valve attached to the end of the valve stem that more than likely needs replacement.

And not a washer malfunction.


If I understand your explanation correctly this is the cause.

If this is not the problem then the washer has a water inlet that is stuck open.

But this dose not make sense if the external water valve is shut off there should not be water reaching the washer inlet faulty or not!

I believe I figured out the problem for you and you will be fine when the valve is fixed or the valve stem replaced!
Bless You,

Kenmore Model 110-21102010 does not drain


Check filter is not blocked (if fitted) after draining water away by raising the washer and lowering the outlet end of the drain hose. The water should flow out into a bowl or bucket. If it does not there is probably an obstruction in the extractor pump or hose near the pump. Unplug the machine from the electrical supply, remove the back panel of the machine, and locate the extractor pump. Are there two electrical cables connected to the electrical connectors on the pump? No? Connect them (either way around) re-connect power cable and try to pump out the water make sure the machine is high enough to get a good sized bowl underneath. If cables are connected and pump does not operate, disconnect from the power supply and carefully release the clamp of the hose attached to the pump. Only allow a small amount of water to escape to start with (expect at least a couple of gallons to come out). Be ready to replace the hose if the bowl becomes near full.
Watch out for objects coming out with the water that could have been stopping the pump from turning, e.g.coins, or nuts & bolts or my pet hate cotton-buds . When all the water is drained out carefully remove all the hose connectors, and hoses, from the pump. Check that there is nothing inside the pump that would stop it from turning. if you are sure that it is clear, check the other disconnected pipes for stray objects and then reconnect to the pump, tighten the hose clips, lower the machine to ground level. Leave the back off for now, reposition the extractor hose into the domestic drain pipe and re-connect to the power supply. Select a drain cycle (or rinse cycle) and switch on. Listen for the pump running and water being pumped away down the drain pipe. Working? check the hose connections for leaks. Fine? Replace the back panel and park the washing machine back to its proper place. Not working call an electrician/washer repair man as there is an electrical problem. Remember always check ALL pockets before washing any clothes.

Water is not getting into the washing machine. Fridgidaire Crown series. Water is coming through the hoses. Detatched hose from washer, water still comes out. Cleaned screen on back of washer. No...


Hi. sounds like the pressure system is blocked if it goes through a cycle with no water. Find the pressure switch in the top of the machine its the size of a small coffee jar lid, it has wires and a thin rubber pipe to it, pull the pipe off and see if the switch clicks as you do so. If it does you need to follow the pipe, at the end it goes to the pressure chamber.It will be blocked with gunge and will need cleaning out, also blow through the pipe to make sure thats clear. Make sure you fit the pipe back with no air leaks or the machine will over fill and flood.If you don't feel confident in doing this Please call an engineer.Best to be safe, it could also have damaged the heater or thermal cutout

It will not fill with cold water. Could it be due to the cold weather - the cold water pipe frozen. Kitchen is very cold (pipe is next to an east facing wall). Same pipe also fills the dishwasher,...


If youve taken the fill hose off and checked for running water out of tap and its not coming through, your machine is ok, you have a water fault.the humming is the water valve working.

Water Leaks from beneath my washing machine


Our WM2077CW just started the water leaking from underneath. We unplugged the electrical cord and disconnected the hoses (water, drain). We then removed the inspection plate from the back and checked for wet hoses. The big black hose on the bottom was a little wet. On careful examination we found a small hole that looked like a material fatigue failure at the point where the accordion part of the hose met with the solid part of the hose near the main drum connection. I suspect this is may occur in other LG washers of the same design. Unless your floor is perfectly level it's hard to tell whether coming from the left or right side really indicates where underneath the water is coming from.
