Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a old Hotpoint washer(came with house) and 3 days ago the cold water side just ran to the tub and overflowed for like 7 hours(at work). The washer had worked fine before then. The hot water side was still on afyer I cut the cold off from the house and it did not run in tub but the cold would just keep running unless turned off at house faucet. So is the valve bad that the water lines screw into?

Yes the valve will have to be replaced. This is a common problem as machines get older.

Water won't stop coming in


There is a small clear hose that connects to the side of the tub near the bottom, the other end of the hose connects to a switch in the console behind the knob for the load size, this tube either came off while you were working on it or it got full of water. If it came off simply put back on but do so with the tub empty of water, this is very important!!

If the tube was filled with water, drain the tub and blow through the tube and reconnect.

Washer tub slowly (over several days) gets water inside


yes this is more than likely a leaking inlet valve, to confirm turn of water at wall valves

It sounds like you have an anti-scald mixer in the system that needs to be adjusted.

Maytag Washer (approx. 7 years old) has slow stream when filling


Follow the two inlet hoses from the back of your machine. They should each end at a valve (one for hot and one for cold). Make sure that these valves are all the way counter-clockwise and that the hoses are not kinked or pinched.

Hotpoint washer will not stop filing with water


It would appear you have a faulty water inlet valve.
Try turning the water off to the washer. if it stops filling, then that is your problem
Replace valve or valves as required.

Another flood. GE washer


The water sound is normal. There is a solution in the top of inner tub for balance. Is it overflowing...as in not stopping the fill cycle? If so check to make sure small hose is still attached to outer tu at bottom left front. This dome that it connects to can become filled with scum and causes the unit to not know that it's full. This causes flooding. You can try removing hose and cleaning out with thin wire. Sometime only fix is to replace outer tub. Again, this is only if overflowing!!
Another possibility is a bad break allowing outer tub to spin in agitation. This throws water up over sides of tub. Monitor unit when agitating to see if outer tub picks up speed and starts to spin. It is normal for it to index.
