Sink faucet for cold-water won't shut off

Hi,if you have had the faucet for some time if its a valve shut off their maybe a rubber washer that needs renewing ,or if you live in an area that has lime in the water you can get a build up of lime scale inside. The water will need to be turned of at the isolation valve and the faucet will have to be inspected to see what the problem is inside the unit.

Turn water off at the faucet. Screw off the cold water hose. Look in the end of the hose and you should see a wire screen. Remove this screen and clean it thoroughly with a soft bristle brush. Rinse and replace the screen. Screw hose back onto the faucet and turn water back on. Hope this helps.

This sounds like a foreign object in the water line. Suspect areas START at the shut off valve.

Turn off the house water and inspect the washer in BOTH shutoffs, I suspect that you may find a chunk missing. Not always so easy to get the broken piece out of the faucet, but keep after it until you get it out. Sometimes you have to totally take everything apart....

Error code #E70


Error code E70 means Cold water hose is connected to wrong faucet or Cold water faucet is not turned on. If this is not the case then check the cold water hose, whether it is kinked or plugged. If the hose is fine then the fill valve assembly has turned bad and you would need to replace the valve. Connect hose to cold water faucet and cold water inlet on washer. Be sure cold water faucet is fully opened.Hope this helps... Please post back for more information.

Hot water fills very slow(30 MIN OR MORE TO FILL) good water flow from spicket to washer, screens are clear. sewems to be something with the washer its self

Might be a bad inlet valve. To confirm, swap the hot and cold hoses to your washer so that the cold water feeds the hot water connection and the hot water feeds the cold water connection. Turn off both hot and cold water faucets. Set the washer for a warm water wash. Turn on the cold water faucet, and check the flow. Then turn off the cold water faucet, and turn on the hot water faucet and check the flow. If the cold water flow fill slowly, then the problem is with the inlet valve.

It an easy part to obtain from an appliance supply house. To install disconnect the hoses to the back of the machine, and remove the back panel to get access to the valve. Should only take a couple of minutes to remove and install. Hope this helps you.

Check the water shut off valves behind your washer. Make sure they are full open (turn counter-clockwise).

Turn the shut off valve off (full clockwise). Disconnect the hose and try running it into a bucket from the valve to make sure you have good water flow.

Check the hose from the shut off valve and make sure it's not kinked stopping water flow.

Turn shut off valve off completely...disconnect hose and look at the end that attaches to the washer. Is the metal screen clogged? Look at the water inlet on the washer where hose attaches and make sure there are no obstructions.

Washer was working fine! Moved washer to new house, and now it will run but only with hot water. put washer on Auto controll, and cold cold or warm cold setting, and it wont even turn on.

Have you tried checking your cold water supply faucet? Are you sure there is cold water running out of that faucet before you hooked up the hose? Is it possible there is a shut off on the supply valve that isn't turned on? Therefore it will not run on cold water setting? This actually happened to me once. We went away for a week and turned the water off for the hot and cold supplys. Came back to do laundry and only turned the hot one on and not the cold. Good luck!

This error code indicates a water supply problem.
Are both the hot and cold water faucets turned on?
Turn on the water. Check the household faucets to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Completely open both faucets for proper fill.
NOTE: Both hot and cold water must be connected to the washer and turned on; the washer will not properly operate with only one incoming source of water.
