Check for loose or bad connections, if o\k then probably control unit.

    The hot water solenoid is not energised on all progs, so if you are selecting certain progs this could be why it is not energising.

    Try selecting a high temp wash, if the valve still does not work, then I would suspect control unit.

    Make sure you have got good pressure, or the valve will not let the water through.

I have a Whirlpool Duet Washer and I keep getting an error code "FL". Can someone please tell me what it means and how do I fix it?

F8 E1 or LO FL Code in display:

No water detected entering washer after 13 minutes, the pressure switch input has not been detected.
If the washer has an F8 E1 error or LO FL error, the door will be locked, and the control will be unresponsive. Press the power button, and the washer will start a drain routine which takes approximately 8 to 10 minutes, during which time the pump will run continuously. The control will not accept any input during this time. Please wait 10 minutes before trying to perform any functions.
Check the water supply:
Turn on the water. Check the household water supply to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Make sure to open both faucets completely for proper fill.
NOTE: Both Hot and Cold water must be supplied to the washer.

Only cold water coming from Grohtherm wireless 36023

There are multiple possibilities:
- the power to the main control could be off (seems unlikely if you can turn the water flow on and off)
- the thermal element that heats the water could be burned out (may not be a problem if this is only a mixer unit and relies on external hot water supply)
- there could be a problem with the solenoid that opens to allow hot water to flow through the unit
- there could be either no hot water getting to the unit or blockage so that hot water will not flow through to the mixer

Start by making sure there is power. Then you may need to disconnect the hot water supply (after turning it off at the source) and then check to see that hot water will flow. If you get hot water to the unit then there is something internal keeping the hot water from mixing with the cold.

No hot water supply

If you have the Hot Water open at the outlet and you know for certain water flows from the source to the washer; then a Valve is not opening into the washer. The valve is controlled by the washers circuit board. This solenoid is electrically activated upon command, and if that instruction gets to the valve it should open and close. Failure could be either the Valve or the Command Center.

I have a Kenmore side by side refrigerator Model 106 9552911 and at times water just keeps running and overflows the ice maker and onto the floor. If I shut the water supply off for a few minutes and then...

Back bottom of fridge is the water selonoid with a plug on it. If you have an electric meter check power on that when it calls for more water, if it has power for about 10 seconds and stops but water still flows then that selonoid is bad if not then ice maker water timer wheel might not be hitting the switch.

LG 47LB5D - When TV is turned on green light flash a few times and screen comes on but input is not recognized. TV is unresponsive to all commands. TV will not turn off unless power button on TV is held...

There's no quick fix on your problem because you hava a leaky electrolytic on the supply of the microcontroller.Leaky capacitor affect the regulation of b+ and sometimes works within warms-up but the sympton will get worst. I've rather suggest you to send it to repair shop to isolate the problem because the microcontroller itself is one of the major suspect on this case.

Thanks for using fixya.

Pls rate my help.

When first turned on the hot water runs for less than 30 seconds and then quits. You hear a clicking sound as soon as the water stops.

This is the inlet selonoid is going bad it is behind where the water connection hoses connect to the machine.

Air hammering as flling warm and or hot,

This is common problem with high pressure water supply and solenoid "turn off" water valves. Visit plumbing shop and buy a small anti-hammer device and fit to water pipe near to washing machine tap. You may also need to buy a “T” piece to enable you to fit this. Looks like a small six inch piece of pipe with only one open end. This device contains a clever spring valve and an sealed in air pocket to cushion the quick stop and start of the water flow. Worked fine for me. Total cost about $30.00

No water pressure in bath tub after turning off hot water heater

It could be back flowing into the hot water heater tank which is not full because of the leak. Even though the valve is closed on the cold water entry side, there is probably no valve on the exit side. That is how it is returning to the tank.
