Check the tap is turned on
if not fix
turn off taps, check the lint screen inside the hose end (tap connector end) is not blocked
if not fix
check cable connections on cold water solenoid valve inside rear of case
if not fix
replace cold water solenoid.

cold water solenoid valve fails more often than hot, is used on every cycle so bnurns out first.
unplug washer and turn off water before checking cables or replacing solenoid.


solenoid is cheap, common to many washers local parts guy will have one that fits even if it is labelled ge frigidaire kenmore

SOURCE: My whirlpool duet washer will not use cold water

This problem is commonly caused by a bad solenoid on the water inlet valve. The valve will have to be replaced to correct the problem.

The following link explains how to access and replace the inlet valve:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3753262-front_load_washer_fills_when_not_in_use

Replacement parts (if required) can be found at the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The average cost varies, so shop and compare. The first three websites I listed also have helpful exploded view parts diagrams that can help you locate and properly identify the parts you need. If the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement valve is 8181694.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Water will come in at beginning of cycle on a Hot/Cold wash but not in rinse cycle?


because the rinse uses cold water and u may have a cold water issue with the water inlet valve, the water inlet valve cold coil may have gone bad. test it with a meter and voltage

Turned on whirlpool duet washer, came back to FH as realized forgot to turn water on. Have tried all the suggestions, but each time I plug the machine it tries to drain water and the motor hums. I cannot...


Make sure both hot and cold water supplies are turned on. Select a cold wash cycle and start the wash cycle, do you get cold water? Now select a hot wash cycle and start the wash cycle, do you get hot water? If you only get cold water replace the hot water fill valve. If you only get hot water replace the cold water fill valve. If you get neither replace both fill valves.

2 yr old Whirlpool duet washer,suds and now f35 codes. Also when put on cold water i can only get hot water ?


the only reason you would get hot water on the cold setting is if the water lines have been crossed.you can usually clear the cosde by running nothing but clean water through the wash cycle and then use a little less soap.on the next was cycle.unplug the unit for a little bit then wait awhile and run the washer empty.

My Whirlpool Duet ht Washer starts washing fine, it drains then it starts flashing FH and wont take in water for the rinse cycle. It does this for every cycle, it will wash fine but after it drains and is...


The first thing I would check is shut off the cold water valve at the wall and remove the hose at the washer.carefully pry out the little screen in the inlet and clean well,reconnect hose and turn water back on FH is a water inlet issue I am hoping that what is happening is that when the washer starts its wash cycle it is probably filling with warm (hot) and cold water at the same time even though it might be mostly hot,but when it comes time to rinse (cold water ) there is not enough to make the computer happy and you get your FH error.. Hope this Helps,,If not your probley looking at a new fill valve assy

The washing machinge is not completing the complete cycle


When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
