    mine is the same problem however i checked to see if the water hose was obstructed and it wasnt it flowed fine when disconnected from the machine and another thing is that when i looked up the part the water valve it was as ONE unit with both the hot and cold water valves and in my case as this one, only the cold water valve is giving me the problem, is it possible to only replace the cold water valve and have you ever heard of a cold water cylinoid? someone mentioned that to me at home depot, i know nothing about repairs so if this gave you a good chuckle ..your welcome, i am a girly girl and am happy to fix my own machine if i have sound advice on how to do so..please post a comment for me thank you.

Chnge your water valve or your cold water hose. something could be blocking up your hose. also when you ask machine for cold water does the machine hum? if so check to see if cold water is on. if the water is on then replace your water valve.

Hot water fills with hot and cold not strictly hot what is the fix


see the causes: and proceed with common sense. God bless you
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.

The inlet valve on the cold water inlet is clogged, dirty or jammed. You need to remove the inlet valve and clean the valve and filter. use back flushing with brushing to clean the filter.
the hum you hear is of the coil working but is not opening to allow water into the system.
Also you can switch the inlet valve from the hot line if needed .
check this link for removing the inlet valve:

The washing machine won't fill with water at all. we have cleaned the pump valve and we have checked the water lines. are there any other things that could be causing this problem?


You will want to check and make sure the door handle/lock is switching on. the front load unit will not fill with water with the door open. Check that the latch is engaging.

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.

Washer will not fill when you select cold water


Q - My washer will not fill with cold water
A - More often than not, this is a bad fill valve. Please see the filling section.
There's no cold water Some washing machines allow cold 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 is not working the way it used to--or should--check the following.

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


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


  • Is there cold water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean.
