I have just purchased the WFS1275CD Whirlpool front loader and found that it periodically stops and a message comes up to say the tap is closed (hot water - but there is no hot water outlet on the machine)...
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but, because of the confusing message, I am unsure- is this is a cold fill only washer- or a hot and cold fill but with a cold water feed only (into a 'Y' piece)?
Here are my pre-typed notes on what I call 'poor cold fill'!
If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call and a check that it isn't the control PCB ;-0(
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
