Question about Hoover Nextra HNT 2135 Top Load Washer

Cold water will not flow into machine

Only a small amount of water will flow through the cold water valve on the washing machine. When I switched the hoses cold water will go through the hot water valve on the washing machine therefore it is not a problem with the hoses or the taps - it is something wrong with the ability of the water to get through the cold valve into the machine. I have also checked the filters on the machine and they are clean and the hoses were not blocked. A small amount of water does flow through into the machine via the cold valve, but just a very slow trickle and the hot valve is completely normal. Any help would be rgeatly appreciated!

Re: cold water will not flow into machine

Either the valveis faulty or the dispenser box is blocked, remove the internal hose from the valve anf see if you have full pressure at that point if yes box is blocked. Regards Advisor

Water running all the time on wash ciycle

Check the small tube that is connected to the outer wash tub and the pressure switch. When the water flows into the tub pressure is created in the upper half of the tub which causes the pressure switch to turn off the water inlet valve when the required amount of water is present.
Check the tube for debris that prevents the pressure switch operating correctly, if the tube is clear, the pressure switch needs to be checked, replace if faulty.
Low water pressure into the machine can also cause the inlet valve not to close properly, minimum pressure required is 20psi.

H20 is "no fill" or difficult fill. To test:Put the temp select switch on HOT, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. If there is water flow switch to COLD, restart machine, if necessary. If water comes out check the flow amount should be approximately equal or slightly more than flow on HOT. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. Move selector to WARM, restart machine if necessary. Now there should be twice the flow of water than with just HOT and COLD temps. If all seems good turn off the water supply taps. Loosen the connections at the machine. Wait for the hoses to relax before unscrewing them too far. If they do not relax STOP retighten and let me know. After removing the hoses check the screens condition in the end of valve. Those screens can become fouled with lime and other debris. Use a toothbrush and a spray bottle to remove crud. Hold the end of the hoses over a bucket or in the tub of washer and turn on TAPs to check the pressure, it doesn't have to blast out of there (but it likely will if you turn TAPs too far, so be careful) still it has to be more than a weak flow. If the screens are clean and if there is good flow the water valve should function, if it doesn't it is defective and will need replaced. BUT, before you do that you should try one more thing. Make sure you UNPLUG THE MACHINE FOR THIS! Open the console and disconnect and reconnect every wire connector you see. If a connection doesn't pop right off just give it a good wiggle. The goal here is to verify that connections are good, so reseat what you can and wiggle the rest and give wires that go through plastic connectors a slight push from behind the connector. Then plug the machine back in and give it a try. It's worked for me more than once. Let me know what you find out.

Now there should be twice the flow of water than there was with HOT and COLD temps. I suspect it is the HOT side of inlet water valve that has failed because machines usually rinse with COLD water.

sounds like a bad / stuck mix valve --- the mix valve is the plastic part that the hot/cold hoses connect to on the back of the machine,, remove the two hoses..remove the back panel and the valve is held in place by one small screw,, label wires hot/cold and remove the valve. write down the make,model and serial number of th emachine and take the valve down to your local appliance repair shop and buy a new valve and then install into the machine --- hook everything back upp and test the machine,, all should be good -- with full water flow.

You have a bad fill (mix) solenoid valve. The valve in the solenoid is hanging up and by switching it back and fourth between hot and cold its just working its way to the proper position..You were on the right track.....

Kenmore HD Series 80 - hot water trickles in.

Pull the two screws at the bottom corners of the control panel. Pivot the panel up. Lever the two metal keepers underneath forward and up to remove them. Tilt the housing forward and pull it toward you to remove it. Make sure you unhook the lid switch wiring plug before you remove the housing.

Water inlet valve should all be one piece for hot and cold.

Hotpoint BWD129 - Wash temperature too high

Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

Water temperature switch

The water temperature switch directs power to the valve. If there is no power getting to the valve, check the switch according to the wiring diagram for your machine.
Faulty Water Inlet Valve
The water inlet valve is the device that meters water from the supply lines into your wash tub. On domestic washers, there are two lines, one hot the other cold. These valves are susceptible to mineral build-up and sediment deposits. There are two common failure modes:

Failure Mode One: Valve will not open.
If you can verify that the solenoid on the valve body is receiving the requisite voltage and the valve will not open, then it is faulty. Since the solenoids operate independently, it is likely that one side of the valve will work and the other will not. This can produce strand results such as a very hot wash when warm is selected (due to no cold water). Or the reverse in that the wash water is cold when warm is selected. If mineral or hard water deposits are a problem, you may witness a substantial increase in the time required for the tub to fill. This is caused be a decrease in the flow ware of the valve.

Failure Mode Two: Valve opens but will not close.
This is verified by a valve that allows water to flow into the tub even though no power is being supplied to the solenoid. This one is usually quickly diagnosed when the machine begins to overflow and the power plug for the washer is disconnected from the wall. However, this will not stop the water from flowing into the machine. The water must be shut off at the wall. As with the previous failure mode, the variant of this failure mode is that it may take the valve a while to completely bridge the flow of water after the power has been removed from the solenoid.

How to Diagnose?
There are a couple of ways to diagnose a faulty valve. However, there is a simple test that one can perform that will usually let you know if the water inlet valve is faulty.

When set to cold wash and rinse, the unit will not fill. When set to warm wash and cold rinse the washer will fill with hot water only and will fail to rinse. This is a common scenario where the cold water side of the valve does not appear to be contributing to the fill, but the hot water side does. This symptom could be easily reversed where cold water is being supplied, but never hot water.

So, how can the problem be determined? It is as simple as switching the wire harness plugs on the hot and cold side. In the example above where the cold water is never being supplied, the symptoms would be the opposite when the wiring harnesses were switched. So the machine would produce only produce cold when warm or hot is selected. No water should be present when you select cold. This verifies that the timer, wiring and switches are all in working order. Assuming this tests checks out, you simply need to replace the water inlet valve.

Water won't stop running

It might have a small stone or something similar in the water soleniod valve or it might just be sticking open somewhat. I'd go ahead and change the cold water soleniod valve because it's not closing itself and shutting off the water flow.
