There's no hot water Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.

If you're sure the machine isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests:

  • Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on.


  • Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct.


  • Is there hot water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, completely replace it.

There's no water at allIf there's no water at all, make these checks:

  • Is there water getting to the machine?


  • Is the water-volume selector switch set properly and are the control panel buttons pressed in all the way?


  • If you have a Maytag® washer, is the fuse (if there is one) in the control panel at the lid-switch bracket blown?


  • Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.

    Kenmore 60 series washer


    if your only seeing one water feed into the machine then there is a second one missing. the washer should be connected to a hot and cold feed not just one. youve got to find the second feed (cold) if there is one and connect to it as well.

    Water not entering maqchine


    Check to see if water is going through the feed hose to the back of the machine.
    The feed hose as is attachedd to an electrical switch that controls the water going into the machine.
    It is often blue colored.
    It is found way down under the machine in the back.
    That switch also has two wires going to it from the timer, and another hose, usually smaller and black in color that takes the water into the machine.
    If all of this is fine, suspect your timer may not be telling your switch to send the water.
    The switch is about half the size of your fist.

    Can i connect to a cold water feed, i do not have a hot feed


    I am assuming you can select water temperature on your machine. Simply hook up your pipe to the cold water feed on the machine, and leave the hot water feed alone. Always select cold water on the machine before beginning a load. If it makes you feel better, cap off the hot water inlet on the washing machine.

    For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

    1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
    2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
    3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
    4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
    5. Replace the inlet screens.
    6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
    7. Turn on water supply valves.
    8. re-try.

    Ty for being here. I have a kenmore stack washer


    Inside the machine you have a valve called inlet.

    The inlet water valve will collect the cold and hot water lines, and open alternatively one or the other during cycle.

    To access the inlet valve you need to take apart the machine, and that is not an easy task.
    If you DIY remember to unplug power, there is high voltage running inside your appliance.

    Below the inlet valve for your model:

    Gushing water - Hoover SPB11 washing machine


    First plug off the wall. Before connecting the "hoses" (both hot and cold) to the machine inlets see that the inlet is clean. Connect the outlet hose to the standpipe, not too deep. The outlet hose has to be about 3 feet above ground level; there is a water level mark behind the machine. Both the inlets should be well screwed in, noting the threads of the inlets

    You said the water was gushing.....into the machine? Fine .....what next.......post back.
