Why water not flowing into the washing machine


Start with the water coming in from the wall. Turn valve off (I would do cold and hot). Disconnect tube from washer. Get a bucket and SLOWLY turn the water on. Does water come out? If yes than most likely, 85% chance, that its the water valve inside the washer is out. I've replaced mine about a year ago. Goggle your model and year and "water inlet valve". Fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. On the back side of your washer, there should be about a dozen of screws. Remove them and the whole metal backing should come off exposing the inlet water valves. You can do it!

Water fill and start


if the water valve is bad it will hum and no water will enter the washer,first thing is to see if it's a problem with the houseicon1.png water valve or the washer valve,shut off the water supply,reomve the water hoses from the back of washer,mark the hoses so they go back on the same way,stick the hoses into the washer or a bucket and turn the water on,if water comes out of hoses then you know the problem is just the washer,check the valve,look at the screens where the hoses connect to the valve,usually sediment gets in there and the valve on the washer has to be replaced,on some the screens can be removed and cleaned,also you say you have trouble with the lock,what's humming is it the lock or the valve,if you turn it to drain and spin will it run?you could have a bad door switch,if door doesn't latch washer won't run but most likely bad water valve

Hotpoint washing machine model vbxr1090b2ww leaking from bottom of unit


Here are some solutions.


Hope this helps you...Jim...Please leave a comment...Thanks!
LEAKS ALL THE TIME Is your GE washer leaking all the time, even when not in use? If so the problem is the fill hoses or the valve. Look behind the washer to see if water is coming from the hoses. If not, take the cover off to the control panel. Once off, you should see if the water valve and if there is leakage - it needs replacing (if it is leaking). This is the most popular water valve for GE top-loading washers made after 1995 and the part number is WH13X86 Order Here. show?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.1&type=10. Note that some models have a water valve with more than two coils. In this case, you will need to order the valve by model number at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0 Buy Fill Hoses Here. show?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.1&type=10
LEAKS DURING FILL CYCLE Is your GE washer leaking during the fill cycle? If so the problem may be in the valve. Follow instructions above, only this time start the fill cycle before looking at the valve.
If your washer overflows with water during fill cycle your problem is the water level control or the water valve. If you must cut the water off from the house plumbing to stop the water then there is no need for testing, just replace the water valve. First, you need to turn on the washer. The washer should start to fill with water, now cut the washer off and on repeatedly (note to yourself whether the water turned off every time). If it does cut off every time you cut the washer off, then it's most likely in the water level control. If it keeps running after you cut the washer off then, the water valve is bad and needs replacing. (Note that the valve can stick intermittently so it still may be bad if it passed the test) Water valves can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0
If the water valve doesn't stick in the first test then you need to check the water level control. First, remove the front of washer (insert butter knife between the top and the front pushing on the clips) then look on the side of the tub and you should see a tube attached to a box. Remove the tube (make sure all the water is out of the tub) look in the tube to see if is stopped up. Often it will stop up near the end. If it is, you can clean it out with a toothpick. Once it's clean, reinstall it and your washer is fixed. If the tube is not stopped up reinstall the tube. Now set the water level control on the lowest setting and start filling the washer with water. If the water stops when the tub is approximately half full (this varies with every model) turn it up to the next level (you may have to reset it). Repeat until the tub is full. If at any the water level gets above the last row of holes in the tub, unplug the washer. If the water stops running when you unplug the washer, replace the water level control. If the water doesn't stop, turn the water off at the wall then replace water valve. Water level contorls and water valves can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0 . LEAKS DURING WASH Is your GE washer leaking during wash? If so the problem is the tub seal (seals around the transmission where it goes through the tub), drain hoses (including the tub to pump hose) or the pump. First take the front off the washer (insert butter knife between the top and the front, pushing on the clips) then start the fill cycle. Now start watching until you see a leak. If the leak is coming from the tub seal, the transmission needs to be replaced (note that changing the transmission is expensive and takes special tools, so you may consider replacing the washer). If the leak is coming from the drain hose or the pump you need to replace it. If you don't see it leak at all, your soap may be the problem. To check this fill the washer with water and the amount of soap you normally would use. Then start the washer and watch the tube coming from the left back of the tub (the overflow pipe). If soapsuds come out of the overflow pipe then try cutting down on your soap or switch to another brand. This may fix your problem. These parts can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0
LEAKS DURING PUMP OUT Is your GE washer leaking during pump out? If so the first thing you should look at is the drainpipe (to your house plumbing). Fill the washer with water, and then turn it to spin and start it. Now while it's pumping, look at your drainpipe if water backs out (it may not back unless you have soap in the tub), then the problem is in your plumbing. If it doesn't, follow the same steps as above in "leaks during wash." Only this time watch for leaks during pump out as well.

Washer continues to fill with water, no shut off. I turn the connection off at the back of the washer when I hear the change in the water pressure and the washer then goes through the cycle. Solenoid? This...


You have a float valve that works much the same way that the float in your toilet tank works, either your float is leaking, (full of water), or the valve actuated by the float is bad.

Cold water does not shut off when washer starts


You have a leaking solenoid. It is failing to shut off. You'll need to shut off the water, unplug the washer, and disconnect both hoses (make sure that you mark the cold side at the washer, if it doesn't already have a mark). The blur plastic item that you hose screws on to at the washer is the solenoid valve. All it is is an electrically controlled valve that is either open or closed. Rewmove the back of the washer to gain aces to the solenoid valve. Take this part with you to any appliance parts supply house, and they can provide an exact replacement. Reassembly is the reverse of removal.
This isn't a difficult job. You can do it!

Washer will start cycle then stop and LF starts blinking on the screen


LF means long fill. So the washer is taking too long to fill. Make sure your hoses are connected to the right spot on the water valve. (hot on hot and cold on cold). Also check that the taps are fully open. If this is good remove the hoses from the washer water valve and put the end into the washer tub. Turn on the hoses and check for good flow. They're good? Check the mesh filter in each inlet of the water valve. All clean? Replace your water valve. Good luck!

Washer won't stop filling


if you can turn the washer off while it is still filling. and the water continues to enter the machine you have a bad inlet valve.
Do me a favor turn the washer to fill, with the washer still running unplug from the wall. If the water is still entering the unit you have a bad inlet valve

Water dripping into tub


One of your water solenoid valves are either going bad or stuck open with a little sediment. Find out which is leaking by turning off one of the water lines to the washer. If after it is turned off it still leaks try turning the first water valve back on the turn the other water valve off. This will help you determine which solenoid valve is having the problem. Once identified it is easily replaced.
