Is it OK to run a washer without water

I want to test and service a washer but have no water hook up available. Is it OK to run the washer for short periods to test the different cycles without water in the machine or even connected?

    The owner of the washer that I am wanting to test has stated that it will damage the washer to run it without the water connected. Is there any danger of this?

All you can test without water, is the spin and pump functions..
The heater and the wash action will not work without the correct amount of water in the washer.
Hope this helps.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks

Do the water hoses have to be connected to a Roper washing machine in order for the agitator to run?


The pressure switch has to be satisfied first, then it will agitate. There is a way to force the agitation, but hooking up the water would be easiest. Hope this helps

Series 60 cold water runs slow


turn off water to washer remove cold water hose at washer. there should be a screen in the valve that needs cleaned. should pull out with a small screwdriver or pliers. wash out and re install. you may deform it removing it but it will reshape with your fingers.be sure not to run washer without screens or could ruin valve and it won't shut off. also flush out fill hose before hooking it back up.

Error code NF? what does that mean?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error NF means No Fill. The washer has tried to fill but was unsuccessful. NF indicates No Flow. There is something that is interrupting the inbound flow of water to the washer, either hot or cold. Sometimes this happens when water service in the area is interrupted, creating an air pocket that causing the water valve not to sense water.

Try running the diagnostic test by—
  • Press the delicates and heavy soil keys together for 3 seconds.
  • You are in the service mode.
  • Now, press wrinkle free key, cold water should start entering.
  • Then, press the cotton sturdy and hot water should flow.
  • To exit the test mode, either unplug the machine or press the delicate and heavy soil again for 3 seconds.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Hot water will not cut of


Hi, If the washer is unplugged, does the hot water shut off? If not, then you need to change the water inlet valve.
If I can help you further, please let me know.

Thanks

Cold water no flow on Kenmore front load washer


Check cold hose to see if it is clogged or the filter in the end of it is. Make sure water freely coming out from the tap. If that is all ok then replace the watter control valve on the cold side.

Water Sounds


Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!


This is normal for the Neptune!
I used to have a Neptune and I sold them too!!
The machine is wringing out the clothes good??
The Neptune comes new with water in ti from the test run!
All the water never gets totally discharged. This is one reason why everyone complains about the mold, musky or even stinky smell of the Neptune! Every day i have people here asking what too do about the moldy wet smell!
SERIOUS!!!!!
I do tell them to run the washer once a week without clothes and with hot water and 1/4 cup of bleach. And then make suer to do only white clothes directly after wards as not to get a drop of beach water on a colored article of clothing!
Then leave the door open after every load when not in use!
That's Maytag!!!!!!!!
GOOD THING WHIRLPOOL JUST BOUGHT THEM OUT LAST YEAR!
Perhaps they will make some good changes!!

Hope this helps and makes you feel a little better as to some water sounds! HOW OLD IS THE WASHER??????

Below I referred you to a great service nation wide!

Washer is not tumbling after water fill.


You may have a corrupted ccu or relay. Does the machine drain and is there an error code? It starts ok and then does not continue and the pressure switch is ok? You may want to remove the swith and lightly blow into it and check for continuity and then ohms. Any small measure and I would replace it. Also if the ccu says it is ok and it is not then I would question the ccus ability to function normally.

Ran HE3 without Water, it's now locked up


Unplug the washer and wait 30 minutes, sometimes the next morning for the machine to reset. Make sure the water is on because it while find multiple failures and lock up, Secondly you can try putting the machine into diagnostic cycle to ensure it is ok. Press drain/spin and select no spin for spin speed finally press prewash quickly two or three times and let it run, any flashing codes?, hit prewash again after writing the codes down.
