Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Hot water solenoid not energising i.e. no hot fill.

When machine switched on, hot water is supposed to enter machine, no electrical supply to hot water solenoid i.e. valve not opening to allow hot water into the machine.
Is there a sensor of some kind that could prevent the solenoid energising? Say, a thermostat, a pressure switch, or something on those lines that could be responsible?
Please help.

Check the water setting.

it could be set to cold and not warm or hot that is why it is not energizing the hot water solenoid.

tnx 4 using fixya.


check also temperature setting of water. if it is set to cold, then hot water will not be energized. or it could be the defective part.

tnx again,

My LG TROMM Hot water continually fills even after machine is turned off and unplugged. I have to shut off water supply to stop it.

Unplug the washer removing all electrical power from the machine. Turn the water back on and confirm that water is still entering the machine.

If the condition is true no power to washer and water enters machine it is very likely that the fill solenoid has failed.

this part is not that difficult to replace.

How to Check a Washer when Is Not Filling With Water OTHER washers test similiarly
# Test procedures to follow when a GE Hotpoint washer is not filling

* Disconnect the washer from the wall outlet
* Set the timer dial on regular and pull the knob to turn the timer push-pull switch on
* Set the temperature switch to the cold/cold setting
* Open the controls panel to gain access to the water mixing valve solenoids
* Touch the 2 terminals on the cold water solenoid with your volt meter test proves. Make sure that your body don't touch the washer cabinet, this eliminate the chance of getting an electrical shock.
* Have someone plug the washer cord for you while you check the voltage
* The reading should be 120 volts
* Disconnect the washer from the wall outlet
* Touch the 2 terminals on the hot water solenoid with your volt meter test proves. Remember, to keep your body from touching the washer cabinet to eliminate the chance of getting an electrical shock

Have your helper plug in the washer cord again so you could check the voltage at the hot water solenoid

* The reading should be 120 volts. If you get 120 volts, this tells you that the wall outlet, the timer, the water temperature switch cold and hot water settings are working ok.

If the GE Hotpoint washer is not filling, the problem should be on the water valve, the screen filters or the water supply
If one of the solenoids is bad you will need to replace the complete water mixing valve assembly YOU SHOULD ALSO GET AN OHMS READING OR SHOW CONTINUITY WHEN TESTED UNPLUGGED ON BOTH SELINOIDS HOT AND COLD

Hot water is delivered to the washing machine but will not enter the machine. Cold water will enter the machine. Model #LAT9457AAM.

Make sure that the machine is not selected to 'Cold Wash'. Otherwise check if there is a screen in the supply line, these can become blocked due to scale deposits from the mains. If there is no screen check that the inlet solenoid valve has not got blocked. If none of the above help, check that there is power getting to the solenoid valve when the machine is supposed to be on the fill cycle. If no power is getting to the valve, the timer might be faulty. (You can try hand filling the machine and see if it goes through a cycle, at least up to the rinse stage, this will tell you if the timer control is working).

Hot water connected but does not fill into the drum? The machine will provide us with a cold wash but on the warm and hot settings the hot water dies not pull through the connection

Turn off the water valves which supply the water to washer hoses. Switch the hot and cold water supply hoses and tighten. Turn the water valves back on and try to run a wash cycle using cold. If hot water only is entering the wash tub the water supply is ok. If this is the case you can unplug the washer and turn off the water valves. Remove the washer back cover and follow the water connection for the hot water. The water solenoid valve will have two electrical wires connected to it. Interchange the hot water solenoid wires with the cold water solenoid connection. Connect the water supply hoses hot to hot and cold to cold then plug the unit then test the washer on the cold wash. If the problem persists it could be a water hose restriction or the timer circuit could be defective. If you have hot water at the normal pressure purchase a new hot water solenoid valve. With the electrical cord unplugged be sure to restore the correct wire connections on the hot and cold water solenoid. To replace the hot water solenoid remove the hose clamp and hose to replace the old valve. Connect the unit to the water and electrical outlet. Turn on the water and test the unit for leaks being careful not to touch any electrical and moving parts. If all checks ok and the correct temperature work, unplug the unit and reassemble.

Model 110.81860110 will not run hot water

The hot water valve is not working or clogged. Disconnect the washer from the power supply to avoid electric shock. Turn off the water supply and remove the hot water fill hose from the hot water valve. Check the valve for lime scale clogging and clean it. Check the flow of hot water in the hot water fill hose by placing it in a bucket and opening the hot water supply valve. Reinstall the fill hose and turn on the water supply. Proceed below if the problem is not resolved.

Disconnect the washer from the power supply. Remove the screws from the front corners of the console then lift and flip the console to the back of the washer. Disconnect the lid switch wiring harness from the body of the machine by prying the connector lock and pulling it off.

The cabinet is held on to the back panel by two retaining clips. Insert the blade of a flat-bladed screwdriver into the lip of the clip then pry back to release it. Repeat this to the other clip.

Lift the lid and grab the front rim of the cabinet. Rock the cabinet towards you and lift it all the way. You now have access to the water inlet valve. Disconnect the wiring harness from the hot water valve terminals. Measure the resistance of the solenoid coil using an analog multimeter (set it to X1). Replace the entire valve assembly (part number 285805) if the multimeter reads it open.

Remove the fill hoses and the inlet hose from the valve assembly then remove the mounting screw. Install the new valve assembly and connect the fill hoses and inlet hose. Connect the wires to the proper valve solenoid terminals. The red connector goes to the hot water valve.

To reinstall the cabinet, line up the front bottom rail of the cabinet up and under the rail on the base of the washer. Place the cabinet back into position and put the retaining clips in the slots provided on the back panel then push it down into the slots on the cabinet. Reconnect the lid switch wiring harness and put the console back into place.

Hi there my hotpoint washing machinewma 54 fills up without the machine being on

Hello. your fill valve is faulty and needs to be replaced.

here is how the fill valve is supposed to work:
The fill valve--which is about the size of a coffee cup--is sometimes also called a "water inlet valve." It controls the entry of hot and cold water into the machine. The valve has three major components:

  • A hot-water solenoid

  • A cold-water solenoid

  • A mixing valve body

The inlet valve has three hoses connected to it, for :

  • The hot water from the house

  • The cold water from the house

  • The water directed into the washing machine's inner tub (either hot or cold, or both) to fill it with water

When electricity flows to one or both solenoids, water flows through the valve into the washing machine's inner tub. When the electricity stops, the water also stops.

No water entering washer, water supply is ok. Washer is 2 yrs old

The water solenoid valve may have failed. Try using only hot or cold and see if it fills with water. If so, then replace water solenoid valve on the one that doesn't work.

Check your hot and cold water supply hoses for residue buildup that restricts the flow of water.....there is a small metal screen filter that clogs up ....most likely the cause if your pipes are old and the inside walls are shedding deposits into the water line.

Washing machine fills continuously

It sound to be the water level switch but somes times the thin hose conected to the water level switch is broken... if you know how to dissambling and check visualy if you got a broken hose or a bad switch if the hose is ok try snaping the switch with an screew driver..any way is better to replace it with a new one....
