Not likely but worth checking, turn off water supply to hose going to washer disconnect hose and look in the inlet on the washer if you see a buildup of some kind you can clean it off check both inlets if this is the case.

More probable: The solenoid valve, (Part that controls the water flow into washer) has failed. This is usually a blue plastic part that the hoses connect to.

If you are willing to take off a back panel and replace a part post back with make and model and we can try to help you find this part and replace it.

Tub Seal

If the washer is leaking water the tub seal might have a tear or rip and is letting water leak past. The tub seal can be replaced. When the tub seal fails water gets into the tub bearings and usually causes the bearings to go bad also. It is a good idea to replace the tub bearings with the new tub seal.

Tub to Pump Hose

If the washer is leaking water the hose from the tub to the pump might be split or torn. Don't try to cut off the bad piece of hose and stretch it to fit the pump, this will put strain on the remainder of the hose and may cause a sudden and complete failure of the hose which will dump potentially hundreds or thousands of gallons of water onto the floor because the next time the washer tries to fill all of the water will end up on the floor and so the washer will never shut off the valve. Any time there is a damaged hose, replace it completely with the OEM part.

Washing Machine Fill Hose

If the washer is leaking water, check the fill hoses on the back of the washer, this is the most common place for water to leak. If the washer still has the original black rubber fill hoses replace them with stainless steel or some other, more durable hose.

Drain Hose

If the washer is leaking water check the drain hose. The most common places for the hose to spring a leak is from the connection to the pump out to the back of the washer. Another common occurrence is when the washer gets pushed too far back against the wall.

Code F20, what is it and what do i do?????


The "F20" means no water is detected entering the tub or the pressure switch trip was not detected.

There is a good possibility the reason why is because some or all the water is coming out the dispenser. The reason why it's coming out of the dispenser is most likely due to a small garment was shoved up into the tube that delivers the water into the tub. This can happen if the washer is overloaded or if the garment is too small. Small garments should be placed in a garment bag before washing.

Remove the dispenser drawer and confirm there is no block there and then open the door and look at the rubber boot at about the 10 or 11 o'clock position and you should see where the water enters the tub. You will likely find a small garment up inside the tube restricting the fill water from entering the tub and causing the F20.

Hf error message


The central control unit does not detect water entering the machine 30 seconds after the water valves are opened or the pressure switch did not trip 8 minutes after the flow meter detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it. The problem is therefore either the flow meter, water inlet valves, or the pressure switch.

Check the level of water inside the tub when the error code flashes. The pressure has not tripped if there's enough water inside the tub. Verify the condition of the pressure switch hose and the pressure switch itself. Make sure the hose is not kinked or clogged. Disconnect the hose from the switch then blow air forcefully down the hose and then the switch. You should hear the switch click when blowing air into it. Replace the switch if the problem persists.

The problem is in the water inlet valves if there's no water at all that has entered the tub. Replace the valve assembly if that is the case. But if there's some water that has entered the tub, then the problem is in the flow meter. Check to make sure that the flow meter pinwheel is oriented in the vertical position. Remove the flow meter and blow air through it to free the pinwheel from possible stuck up. Replace the flow meter if the pinwheel is broken or frozen.

My LG front loading washer makes a train noise during the rinse cycle. What could be the cause?


if it is right after the drain cycle; it then goes into a spin. It then starts to fill with water for the rinse while the tub is still turning. The water entering the tub while the tub is spinning, cleans the tub of soap and the water going through the holes in the tub are causing the noise. It is normal if only in the rinse cycle.

Kenmore 80 series overflow


The water level switch senses the water level in the wash tub. It does this through a plastic tube which runs from the switch in the control console down to the side of the outer tub, near the bottom . The tube is filled with air. As water enters the tub it also enters the tube. As water climbs inside the tube, it pushes on the air trapped inside and increases the air pressure. When the air pressure reaches a certain level, it triggers the switch. Inspect the air tube for kinks, breaks or damage. The tube should also be free of water. The tubing should be securely connected to the bottom of the outer tub and to the bottom of the water level switch. If the Tube is full of any water, remove it from the switch and replace it with a new one. Make sure that the new is correctly fitted to the switch.

The switch routes current from the timer control to the temperature switch and the water inlet valve when the tub needs to be filled. Once full, the pressure switch cuts the current and reroutes it to the motor on the timer control to continue the cycle. If the tube replacement dose not improve the fill performance, and it continues to overfill, replace the timer.
