My samsung washing machine 8.0 kg diamond drum model WA104F does not function and no water comes out from the source but power supply is ok


Turn off the water going to the washing machine, and disconnect the hoses at the machine (put a pail under each hose to catch drips or leaks from the shutoff valves). Inspect the strainers at the hose connectors on the machine - they may be clogged with lime or sediment. If so, use a wet-or-dry vacuum cleaner (e. g., ShopVac) to clean the strainers, or if they are easily removed, you can back-flush them under a faucet.

Even if one valve is plugged, the machine may shut down until the problem is corrected. Some models flash an error code indicating a water supply problem - see your owner's manual.

Hot water connected but does not fill into the drum? The machine will provide us with a cold wash but on the warm and hot settings the hot water dies not pull through the connection


Turn off the water valves which supply the water to washer hoses. Switch the hot and cold water supply hoses and tighten. Turn the water valves back on and try to run a wash cycle using cold. If hot water only is entering the wash tub the water supply is ok. If this is the case you can unplug the washer and turn off the water valves. Remove the washer back cover and follow the water connection for the hot water. The water solenoid valve will have two electrical wires connected to it. Interchange the hot water solenoid wires with the cold water solenoid connection. Connect the water supply hoses hot to hot and cold to cold then plug the unit then test the washer on the cold wash. If the problem persists it could be a water hose restriction or the timer circuit could be defective. If you have hot water at the normal pressure purchase a new hot water solenoid valve. With the electrical cord unplugged be sure to restore the correct wire connections on the hot and cold water solenoid. To replace the hot water solenoid remove the hose clamp and hose to replace the old valve. Connect the unit to the water and electrical outlet. Turn on the water and test the unit for leaks being careful not to touch any electrical and moving parts. If all checks ok and the correct temperature work, unplug the unit and reassemble.

Problem : Water leaking out from under washing machine


NOTE. PLEASE UN-PLUG THE UNIT FROM THE ELECTRICITY SUPPLY BEFORE ATTEMPTING THE FOLLOWING JUST TO BE SAFE:-

Problem may be due to a blocked dispenser hole. Completely remove the dispenser unit and check for blockages in the hole where the water goes in. If you cant see anything immediate, take the top off. (Remove the 2 self tapping screws on the back holding the top on). Looking at the unit from the front. look inside where you took the top off and locate the rubber hose that connects the dispenser unit to the drum (it's a tight space, but if you look inside , front left you will see where the hose connects to the drum). Remove the hose and check for blockages. (The hose just pushes into the drum). Let me know. I had a similar problem and found that somebody had shoved a sock and pair of knickers down the water dispenser hole. This was also causing the machine to make a loud noise when spinning. Have you also checked the filter in the bottom right hand corner of the unit ? You have to remove the kick panel to get access to it.

It is leaking under the washer tub


Hi,

Leaking water from a washing machine usually comes from hoses or connections. Be sure that water appearing to be a

leak isn’t drain water from a backed-up standpipe. To prevent potential flood damage, which can occur if washing

machine supply hoses burst, be sure to install “no-burst” stainless-steel mesh hoses and lever-type shutoff valves,

as shown below. With these, you can easily turn off the levers for both hot and cold water between wash days.


1) Check the fittings where the hoses connect to the faucets and to the back of the washing machine. Also look for

worn or leaky hoses. Tighten couplings or hose clamps if needed, or replace the hoses altogether. Be sure to turn

the water off before removing the hoses, and drain them into a bucket after disconnecting them.

2) Determine whether the machine is oversudsing, which can cause the machine to overflow. Reduce suds by pouring 1/2

cup white vinegar in 1 quart water into the washer. Then switch to either less detergent or a low-sudsing variety.

3) The machine may have a faulty basket gasket or tub seal and bearing that must be replaced; in this case, call an

appliance repairperson.

Hotpoint Aquarius WF100


Firstly, there should be only one hose, always connected to the cold supply.
The unit will heat the water to the setting you choose for the wash (40 - 60 - etc)

Secondly, if the unit is leaking water, try turning down the cold pressure, this will slow the supply pressure to the unit and prevent spray out from the detergent drawer.

Your supply tap should have an isloting tap on it, adjust this until it sullpies water at an acceptable rate.
Do this by feeding the hose into a bucket/basin and tweak it until it pours out - not sprays out.
This should alleviate any leaks around the machine.

Hope this helps.

Washing machine is leaking!


First check your supply hose for cracks or splits. If cracks are apparent the hose must be replaced. If none are apparent I would suggest taking apart the connection and checking the gasket or washer inside the fitting. If it has decayed or cracked this could be the culprit. Replace the gasket or washer with the same size. these are availiable at any hardware or home improvement store.
