Is there a water line filter in the machine?

I have a Magtag Dependable Care machine and it fills with hot water just fine but the cold water has slowed to just a drizzle. Our water is from a well so I'm thinking there might be a clogged line (from sand). Is there a water filter that might be clogged going into the machine? If so, how do I get to it to clean it? If not, what alse could be causing this problem? Thanks Sue

Water wont go in washer when on cold /cold or warm cold but will fill on hot cycle. Only cold water is connected. i dont even have hot hose connected---has worked fine for a year on cold/cold. Now has a...

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:

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L top load washer -- hot water okay at inlet on back of unit, but won't fill tub. Is it a valve or a clogged line inside?

Most likey a bad water valve. You can replace it with just a few screws and a pair of pliers for the hose. You can test by swicting around hoses and the plugs on valve if you'd like to test it then try the machine on cold wash(it should be hot). While you switch them inspect the screens for rust and any clogging. Good Luck, Mastatech

My washing machine is taking a long time to fill. it just started doing this. the flow of water is very weak and as it is a super capacity washing machine it takes forever to fill up.

Have you checked the inlet filters on the water hoses ?

If you unscrew the water hoses from the machine, and look inside the connections on the machine, you should see the filters - they are usually a plastic "cage" supporting a gauze or fine mesh. These can be pulled out (you may need tweezers or fine nosed pliers) and washed under a running tap.

If this doesnt cure it, check that the water supplies where the hoses connect to your house plumbing are actually fully on and flowing properly.

Otherwise, there is probably a fault with the solenoid valve(s) on the machine that controls the flow of hot water in to your machine.

How do I clean water filter on a magtag top washer model LA613T

You may have a screen in the inlet side of your fill hoses. There is also a screen just inside the valve. Turn off the hot and colt water shut off valves. Start a cycle on warm wash to be sure both shut off valves are completely closed, and to relieve the pressure within the hose. Remove both hoses at both ends. If there is a screen in the hose connection...remove them, clean them and carefully reinstall them. The screens in the washer valve will be just inside the valve where the hose connected. Carefully remove, clean and reinstall them. Connect hoses back to washer and shut off valves using care not to cross thread. This will damage the connections and require replacement of the valve. Do not over tighten. Once all connections are secure, turn the water back on slowly and check for leaks. If you are uncomfortable doing this repair, it is a very inexpensive repair when a tech does it for you. Watch him or her do it, and do it yourself next time.

Rinse water barely trickles out of my washer

Do you fill the machine with hot water only?

If so, this is what I suspect. The filters in the inlet hoses on the back of the washer need cleaning. Remove the garden hose connectors, remove filter, clean, replace.

When filling with hot only you get a lot of pressure thru one hose. When you rinse, the best you can do pressure-wise is cold rinse -- but the cold water filter is going to be more clogged than the hot so it delivers less water.

When you use warm rinse, you get mediium pressure thru both lines, again less water than al hot on filling the machine.
