Water will not run into washer

There are a number of reasons why this could be.
The most likely problem is that the inlet valve is faulty.
This is something which can happen to any machine and is generally not a big job.
Make sure you have the brand and Model Number when you get prices for the job, because the part can be different on other make/models.
Good luck,

This is a single inlet valve. You may have a double inlet.

Where is the filter in washing machine

Start by turning off the hot and cold water faucets that are connected to your washing machine. This will stop water from running into your washer so you can disconnect your water inlets without flooding the house! To relieve any built-up water pressure, pull the knob out on your washer that starts the washing cycle for just a few seconds. Now it's time to unplug and disconnect your washing machine. First, unplug your washer from the electrical outlet. Next, use a pair of pliers to unscrew the hose fittings on the back of the washing machine. There will likely be some water left in the hoses, so you will want to have a hose or a bucket handy in order to catch and clean up any spillage. Now it's time to break out the water-resistant vacuum. Place the vacuum over each water inlet. As you turn on the vacuum, tap on the inlet a little with a plier in order to free any debris or sediment that may have lodged in it. Continue vacuuming until the inlet is clear, then repeat on the second water inlet. Now that you're done clearing out the filters, it's time to reconnect your washer. Using your pliers, reconnect the correct hose to its inlet and make sure to tighten them properly. Don't forget to double-check to see if there are any leaks. If you find any, re-tighten accordingly. After that, all you have to do is plug your washer back into the outlet and you're ready to go. You've successful cleaned out your washing machine filter!

I have centrex washing machine 4.5 kg, the problem is it stops after washing. it doesnt rinsing the clothes stops at this point.

It could be that the cold inlet valve is faulty.. Your machine will rinse with cold water only and if the inlet is faulty then it won't fill for the rinse cycle. This also means that the wash cycle, if set on 'warm' is only getting hot water. Set the wash temp to cold and see if the machine will fill. If not, the cold inlet valve is the problem. You'll need to replace the inlet valve which may be a double unit with two hose connections Best to call a tech..Good luck Nomess (Please take a moment to rate this answer)

It sound like the cold water inlet valve is faulty, the rinse cycle uses only cold water, and the water in the 'wash' cycle is probably hot.You need a new inlet valve, which on your machine is probably a double hot/cold unit.If you can't get a new inlet valve, a handyman/electrician may be able to change the wiring to use the 'hot' inlet valve for cold water which will allow the machine to wash, and rinse, using cold water through the hot valve..Tikka?...Good luck...Nomess

When i set the programme to wash it only fills with a little water and then stops - not even washing

You most likely have a faulty inlet valve.

I believe in the Bosh, there is a 2way inlet valve for the cold intake and a single valve for hot water.

Remove the top panel see where the hoses connect to the back of the machine. these are your inlet valves.

You most probably need to replace the cold inlet valves.

Get the part before hand. Turn off machine from the power source. Observe the wire connection to the valve solenoids. Replace the valves and fit the hoses as they were. Take notes or pictures so that you remember how they fit.

If you have questions let me know.

I've just moved house and my machine is not

Hello Friend, I think your machine will work properly if you add a water line splitter. You would connect to the single cold water tap and on the other end you would have two water hoses . Connect one hose to the cold water inlet of your washer and then connect the other hose to the hot water inlet. You can get these at Home Depot. Happy to help, Tim.

SAMSUNG B1215J WASHING MASHINE (front loader )

i don't think the problem has something to do with the 6 months delay in using it, right now i think there might be 2 possibilities
1. now that you have just started using it,there might be a mistake in the procedure you follow, because washing machines have options of single ring or double ring, you might be taking out the cloths before the completion of the process, so go through the manual to figure it out.
2. Or if there is no mistake in the procedure, then there must be a problem in the programing of the machine. It might have been mis-programed to fill in water after the whole process, if that is the case take it to the dealer to get it right.

You shouldn't have to take the machine apart to get to the water inlet. Just turn off the water and disconnect the hoses. That's where the screens are to the water fill valve. If your water isn't shutting off, it may actually be the pressure switch. You need to lift the console and check to see if the air hose is still connected. The pressure switch will be behind your water level selector and is usually round and white in color. There is an air hose that should be attached to it. This is a simple and common problem with this model washer. The hose comes off for some reason and the pressure switch never shuts off the water. The console should open by either removing the two end caps and exposing a philips screw on each side. Or, you will need to slide a putty knife under the two corners of the console from the FRONT to release the retaining clips. Just push in while gently lifting and the console should pop off. Double check these before going through all the extra hard work first. Let me know if this helps, and if you need further assistance. By the way...the back plate doesn't come off. You will need to remove the entire front casing. I will explain the steps necessary to remove it if you need to.
