sounds like a water fill problem to me, normally at start of cycle door locked, program set, start water solenoid opens and fills machine with water, once water reaches set level heater will come on and wash program will commence,
so if you have a restriction in the water supply/ water tap not turned on correctly, on blockage in water solenoid valve water flow to machine will be restricted causing a long delay before machine starts, things to try
1. make sure hose connection water valve is fully open
2.open soap draw to see / if you can hear water flowing into machine,
3 if its very slow you have a restriction in water supply
could be a twist in water supply hose, causing a restriction
all above is if machine is taking to long to fill with water,
good luck .
problem in hot water tap
hot water solenoid not activating to let water in
to prove either switch the hoses on the taps and press cold water wash
that proves the tap
then press hot wash and that proves the solenoid
The first place to look is the inlet tap in the wall
even you have the tap on full the tap washer inside jams and prevents the full flow of the water
next check out the filter in the hose at the tap or at the washing machine end
next replace the water inlet solenoid
you can check this by changing the hose from the hot water tap onto the cold water tap and pressing the hot water button to fill
solenoids do not know the difference , they just work when the power is applied
check that the tap is fully opened , the filter in the end of the hose is not blocked
check that the tap washer is not jammed off in the tap as they can expand and not move up to let water in
check water inlet solenoid is functional
(This is pre-typed so for hot and cold please read hot- but check both anyway!)
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,
Is the bowl turning slowly when you press start.if it does then you may have a faulty inlet valve,make sure taps are turned on.try advancing the machine to spin cycle,see if it will do any other things such as spin & drain.if it does then probably just not letting in water & inlet valve needs replacing..try filling machine by hand & see if it washes.
being a new machine, first thing i would check is the water supply of the faucet feeding the machine. remove machine hoses and run supply water to make sure you are getting normal pressure, like at any faucet. if that is good remove hoses at machine, make sure there was no packaging left on that may have bblocked the line.
sounds like you have a restriction on the cold water water pipe kinked or a blockage turn off cold water and remove pipe from cold tap then turn tap on and see if water is coming through fast enough if it is then the restriction is in the hose or valve on washing machine if not then the restriction is in the cold water tap
check your water supply lines. there is a small screen filter where the hose from the tap or other water supply line enters the machine. it may be dirty from mineral build up. make sure all is clean , both ends.
