It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Any suggestions to washing machine which works with irregular water supply?


all models have a water level sensor in them that you set according to the wash load you have
when you turn them on the water flows until the level set switches off the inlet tap and proceeds to wash
regardless of the water pressures and delivery, the wash will not proceed until the water level setting is reached
the problem that you face is that during the rinse cycle , there may not be enough water available to rinse within the rinse/ spin cycle

My washing machine does not use enough water


SILLY QUESTION BUT SOMEONE HAS GOT TO ASK!

HAS THE COLD TAP BEEN TURNED ON? THE BLUE LEVER SHOULD BE VERTICAL FOR OFF ''' AND HORIZONTAL FOR ON '-----' IF YOU ARE STILL HAVING PROBLEMS IT IS NORMALLY THE ELECTRICAL WATER INLET VALVE SWITCH.

Washer does not fill with enough water.


The water level is controlled by a pressure switch connected to a long rubber hose that goes inside the tub. If the switch is defective or if the pressure hose is blocked the machine may under-fill.

Check also inlet hose and water pressure from the house.

I have been putting my washing on a 40 wash and have been putting enough washing liquid in but my clothes just will not wash, i have felt the glass in the door but it doesnt get very hot, is my washing...


The hot water goes into the machine at a slower rate than the cold water does. Open the hot spigot (water valve) behind the washing machine all the way open, then open the cold spigot just enough to get the desired 'warm' temperature of the water going into the machine while the machine is filling. You may have to shut the door to allow water to flow. Remember that it takes a minute or so for hot water to reach the machine from hot water tank.

the only way you can tell if the upper rack is not getting enough water is to turn a glass right side up in each corner. then run for 2 minutes and see if there is water in each cup.
if you still dont get water, then you have checked the pump, the only thing left is that you are not getting enough water into the unit.
start the d/w at a normal cycle, let it fill and go into the wash cycle, takes about 3 minutes, then check to see if the water level is just below the heating element. if so then it has to be the wash pump being plugged.
if not enough water then you should change the water inlet valve. some times they do get plugged but also make sure you are getting full water pressure to the unit as that could cause not enough water into unit. the faucet under sink could be at fault i have seen valve work but not let enough water in, so dont be surprised if you need a new valve.

Water


its probably normal as new machines now only put in enough water to saturate the clothes its only the rinse or wool/delicate cycles that use a higher water level

Not enough water


run the machine empty. if the water comes to the bottom of the glass window, you're fine. No you don't need to see the soap suds either, too musch soap will cause the machine not to function properly and won't spin out all the water
