Question about Fisher and Paykel Fisher Paykel Intuitive Eco Washer IWL15
My 2 year old FisherPaykel washer fills very, very slowly when using cold water. I started by checking the hose at the faucet end to ensure that the screen wasn't clogged. Then, I removed the hose completely; reattached one end to the faucet, turned on the faucet and let cold water run into a pail. I re-attached the hose to the machine, turned the faucet on and the cold water barely drips into the machine. If I change the setting to Warm, the water runs more quickly, but, obviously is running only hot.
You said you checked the screen at the faucet end, did you check the one at the washer connection? Most washing machines have a wire mesh screen which sits inside the plastic connector that the hose connects to. You will have to use a small pointed object (like an ice pick) to remove the screen and clean it. Be careful not to damage it, I have ruined them on more than one occasion and had to replace it with a new one. If that is not the problem, there is likely a problem with the valve that is controlled by the hot/cold knob. I am not familiar with your washer brand, but mine required quite a bit of disassembly to get to the valve and switch, and in my opinion is a job better left to the local repair man.
