Question about Whirlpool LAB2700ML Pedestal Drawer for Duet Washers & Dryers

Whirlpool washer cold water takes forever to fill

If I fill the washer using hot water it fills right up. When using the cold setting, the water just trickles in and takes longer to wash clothes than it does to dry!
These units were in the house when we moved in 6mos ago and we can't afford new ones right now.

    I fixed it. The inlets going into the solenoid valve were plugged. Cleaned the screens and it works as it should.

Firstly check that the cold tap is turned fully on, u can also check that the strainer on the water inlet hose is not blocked (where it connects to machine) if they are ok it could be a water solinoid

Turn off water. take water hose off from behind washing machine.look into where you screw in the hose.see if the little screen filter is plugged up with rust,lime deposit,dirt,sand,etc.while hose is off turn on cold water and see if there is good pressure.if screen is plugged up use a small screw driver to remove. clean it. reinstall.

Take the cold water hose off at the machine. Check the small round screen at the cold water inlet. Clean it if it's clogged. If its OK, then the cold water solenoid is partically clogged. Sometimes they can be cleaned, if not, you will have to buy the part.

There are screens inside the water inlets where the houses connect to. take the cold water house off from the back of the machine and take the little screen out from inside the inlet itself. you can use needle nose plyers to do that. then run the screen in some warm water and remove the gunk that it has. this should fix the problem once you put the screen back into the inlet. if you leave the screen out, then the inlet will eventually get clogged with debri. good luck :)

Your cold side on water valve may need the screen cleaned.if that doesnt help then you will need to replace your water valve.take hose off cold water side of water valve and you will see the screen.it may have alot of blockage.

i've found problems with the temp. switch on this washer part number W10184148 and it's around 40 dollars,also on the rinse cycle the washer only uses cold water.what happens when you use just the hot?i had a lady that her water would start to fill and then the water would stop and the pipes in the house would start making a banging sound.if you order the part from http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Switch/W10184148/1468990 repair clinic and if this isn't your problem which i think it is from how you discribe it you can send the part back and get your money back for up to a year.good luck with your washer and next time you buy something and it doesn't work right get right on it

Washer fills with hot water on cold wash or rinse. Turned off the hot water supply during cold cycle and machine stopped filling. Checked that the hoses were connected to right inlet valve and they are.


typically hot is on the left and cold is on the right at the house faucets but in some cases they are reversed so if filling with a cold setting and the right side supply is hot the plumber reversed the lines when the house was built which while its semi rare has been seen numberous times

Water continues to fill into the washer drum on the spin cycle.


Hi

You could have a stuck solenoid valve
Try this: Set the water temp on cold. Turn on only the hot water.
Does hot water try and fill the drum?
If so then there is a problem with the hot solenoid.

Next set the water on hot. Turn on only the cold water. Does cold water try and fill the drum ?
If so then there is a problem with the cold solenoid.

Washer temp setting changes by itself


I also have a Whirlpool washer/dryer for my condo, although I don't know the model number of mine. I had the same problem -- after it was precisely a year old, suddenly one day the hot and cold started coming out reversed. I was able to fix mine by more or less temporarily fiddling with the water pressure. What I did was one time, when the rinse cycle was running and the washer was filling up with hot water (grrrr...), I completely shut off the valve supplying hot water. So at that point the water stopped filling into the washer, and then I started tinkering with the cold water, twisting the valve off and on a few times. Then BINGO, suddenly the cold water "kicked in" and for the remainder of the rinse cycle, it filled the washer with cold water. I then turned the hot water valve back on, and since then it has been running correctly.

Yes, this is normal. All newer washer have auto temp control fills. This is to meet energy saving requirements. The less hot water used the more energy saved. Most hot settings on washers give out basically lukewarm water. The detergent made today is made to work well with cooler temperature water, so things will still come out clean.

My whirlpool washer fills up with hot / warm water (cold doesn't work) pretty quick for the washing cycle but it takes forever when filling the rinse cycle....help


The amount of water on the rinse is lower becaus it's using cooler water. You stated that the cold water isn't working.
Shut the water supplies off. Take the hoses loose from the hose bibs. There should be screen washers in the end of the hose. These are to catch the sediment that normally flows through the water supply pipes in our homes... Take the washer screens out and clean them with an old toothbrush.
Reinstall and while you're at it clean the hot side too.
Then take the machine end of the hoses off and check that it's all clear there as well.
Re install and run your machine on a cycle and monitor it to see if there is better flow on the cold wash cycle AND the rinse portions of your cycles...
If there is no screen washers in the hose, chances are you'll need to clean the water supply valves in the machine... real fun.. HOPE There's washers in your machine..

Cold water trickles, hot water fills fast as normal


where your water lines connect there is a sc reen inside and if it is clogged with rust lime and or mineral deposit. it needs cleaned out. you can pull it out with a ice pick or something pointy. Check your screen first and if that doesn't fix ya then yes replace the unit.

My whirlpool front load washing machine accept hot water and no cold water entering on the machine.


The water fill valve - The water fill valve is a mechanical and electrical part, the coils on the valve need electricity to mechanically open the valve to allow the water to flow into the washer....myth....the washer pumps water into itself...no, it does not. The fill valve opens and the house water pressure pushes the water into the washing machine.
No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can test a fill valve live for 120 volts, power to a fill valve coil and no fill = a bad fill valve. You can also test the coils for continuity, no continuity = a bad fill valve. Some Maytag washers have a fuse in the fill valve circuit, if this fuse let go the washer will not fill. Fill valves can also from time to time stick open and not stop filling. If you have to shut off the fill valves to stop the water from filling in the washer, you have a bad fill valve and you will have to replace it.
