Question about Fisher and Paykel (IWL12)
20year old machine, checked filters-ok
The mechanical internals of both the hot and cold water inlet valves include a rubber (or similar material) diaphram. After a period of time the diaphram deteriorates and punctures or tears. When this happens the water inlet valve ceases to function correctly and the water just dribbles in and may take hours to fill the machine.
The cure is to replace the water valve that is displaying this problem. The presumtion is that you are already sure there is no filter blockage at filters that may be in the hose ends at the supply tap end and / or at the machine end.and that the plastic pull out filters that are in the water inlet valve (accessible after disconnecting the hoses) are also clean.
