Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

Hi. I have a Robinhood supertub. The cold water tap flow into the tub is fine but the cold water flow into the washing machine hose is suddenly poor. The tap itself is only half turning compared to the other 3 taps and is a wee bit stiffer. Any clues? Is definitely the tub not the machine as I have checked the flow without being hooked up to the machine.

    Did you ever manage to figure this out? Am having the same issue with my Supertub. So strange. I also noticed that the flow coming out of the washing machine cold water tap seems to change, sometimes it's a bit faster, sometimes it is slower.

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.

Make sure there is voltage going to the valve solenoids. That is what opens up and lets water into the washer. You will have to open up the top of the washer control. The valve assembly is where the hoses screw in the back. I don't have the technical on it but most likely should be 120V. Sometimes the valve goes bad and won't open up.

i am pretty sure its the main board, the easiest way to solve the problem is replace a the main board with a secondhand board, as well as obtaining a bag of spare parts, out a good working machine with faulty seals. You may have faulty seals if the machine is dormant for 3 years. I advise people never use washing powder in their washing machines, just use liquid detergent like Cold Power. the washing powder cakes up in the machine and when harden can be very abrasive and destroy the seals.

My Samsung 7.5kg top load washing machine is over filling..is there a sensor or something to correct this


yes
it is connected to the bottom of the tub by a small hose
it sits up top and as the tub fills , air pressure acts against a preset spring tension and switches the water solenoids off at the same time it starts the wash
the problem is probably the water inlet solenoid / valve that is not working or the diaphragm is split
to test , change over the cold and hot water hoses at the taps and press the hot water button
if the flow stops at the required setting it is the cold water valve unit

How do I change the washer on a Rotec Supertub tap


Those taps are fairly hard to remove, so you'll need a big crescent spanner to remove them. I have had the same leaky tap on our supertub, but have found replacement tap washers unobtainable here in Blenheim. Please let me know if you can find any.Regards, Tom

Our machine works fine, but the water just trckles in when it adds water for the rinse cycles. It can take 20 minutes to fill the tub.


Check to see if there's good water volume coming through the hoses attached to the washing machine. If there is, check to see if the screens inside the water-inlet valve are clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If they're clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you should completely replace the valve. Replace the water valve with this part.

The cold water pressure is very poor into our LG top loader washing machine. There are no blckages and the water comes out of the tap fine. The hot water is ok.


remove the hose from the water machine. there is a iron mesh that traps foreign objects from the water tap. Perhaps it is quite dirty.

HOT WATER WON'T FILL TUB


most inlet water hoses have screens in them.  You could remove the hose from the back of the washer and see if there is water flow.   If there isn't, the hot water valve assembly is defective.  These are solenoid operated valves that admit water into the tub.  They can be accessed behind the washer after you remove the back.
