    Thanks Mr.Scary! You are awesome! My local place was going to charge me $69.95 just to come to my house and diagnose my washing machine's problem. With your help I was able to crack my machine open and order the part for a fraction of the cost. :)

Inside the Valve that I told you about earlier, Is an Electronic Closer for the Valve. This Probably Shorted with the Pipe Burst Prob. It was the Prob on Mine a Couple of Years Back when I had the SAME Problem as you.

You're correct you have a faulty water inlet valve. At the end of the wash cycle the solenoid in the valve is not closing properly to not allow water to re-enter the tub. For further assistance with this repai

Can i clean a solanoid on a front loader washer?

It depends on what you mean. If you are talking about the solenoid that allows water to flow from your water faucet through the hose to fill the machine, there is not much to clean. Are you thinking that hard water is keeping it from working? This type of solenoid is usually cheap enough that if you have a problem it should just be replaced.

Water relay then runs after

You will need to replace the water inlet valve. The solenoids are sticking allowing the over-run. Here is the part to order.

Dishwasher not filling

The water float switch, located on the inside bottom of the machine, may be stuck in the up(off) position keeping the water valve from functioning. This is a safety device that turns the water valve off when the machine fills in order to keep it from overflowing.

The water inlet solenoid mounted on the inlet valve under the bottom front may also be malfunctioning not allowing the water valve to open and fill the machine. If electricity is present at the solenoid terminals when the machine is in fill cycle, then check the solenoid coil to see if it is open(no continuity). Also, the timer may not be calling for water/ sending voltage to the inlet valve solenoid.

I would start by manually operating the water float valve a few time to see if that helps. You should hear a microswitch click each time the valve stem is moved up or down by the float. If not, check to see if voltage is getting to the float switch and the water inlet valve solenoid.

Most(if not all) machines have a safety cutoff switch which activates when the door is opened. That switch could also be malfunctioning not allowing voltage to the water inlet valve solenoid in fill cycle.

I have a Zanussi washer dryer which suddenly stopped tumble drying. It is showing code E10, which the manual says is blocked inlet hose. I don't think this can be right, as the wash cycle is working...

it could be the cold water solenoid not allowing much nedded water into the condensor unit... i would check both the hot and cold water feed if both ok and allowing free flow of water into the system have somebody check the poer to both the solenoids if they working ok and allowing water in then check the water pipe from the solenoid going to the condensor which should sit at the backof the machine if this is blocked ornot allowing water to the condenser unit for what ever reason than that could cause the error...i ope thiss is off help kv

Hoshizaki i/m km-1200swb i think i have water prolbem i think piping water supply lines wrong this is water to air supply is on same line .not getting water pressure plenty of water threw water to air coil...

Check the water supply line to the machine, crack it open to see if there is water. If so check the inlet water solenoid in the unit to see if it is opening to allow water in to fill.

Maytag MAH8700AWW water keeps running

Check the solenoids at the water inlet valve. Use a multimeter or ohmmeter and check the solenoids for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need to be replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Another possible cause would be a water level switch, but not with it running on only the cold water side. Hope this helps and best wishes.

The icemaker overfills and the water keeps running and runs out of the fridge onto the floor

Hi, If the ice maker is overflowing, you will need to change the inlet valve. The inlet valve should only draw water when 120V is sent to the solenoid to open it. The inlet valve is located in back and has the water supply tube attached to it.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Ice maker wont fill

Hi, It sounds like the inlet valve needs changes. Could be the plunger inside the solenoid is not lifting to allow water through. If you remove the line going to the ice maker off the inlet valve, try and cycle the ice maker and put the inlet valve over a bucket to see if water is coming out when it gets voltage.
I hope this helps.Please let me knwo if I can assist you further.
