Frigidaire top load wont fill with water, and all other functions are working

Sounds like the solenoid fill valves where the hoses connect to the machine have gone bad.

Usually, it's just a matter of unplugging the machine, turning the water valves off a the supply connections, disconnecting the hoses, opening the entire top of the machine or removing the back panel, removing the plastic hot/cold water mixing valve assembly, getting a replacement assembly, and connecting the wires to the same connections after mounting the new valve assembly.

Close it up, reconnect the hoses turn the water back on, plug it in, and try it.

My whirlpool duet washing machine is making s strange hum and appears that the water is entering slower. I've checked the water taps and don't see anything different than before. Any suggestions?


In addation to checking the actual taps,also check where the hoses connect to at the rear of the washer for sediment build up in the filter screens...also while hoses are disconnected from the washer while checking the screens also place hoses in bucket and turn on taps and see if good water flow is coming from the hoses/taps. If screens are clear and water flow through hoses is good the water inlet valve the hoses attach to would need to be replaced.

MTW5870TWO washer, need to replace cold-hot switch. Do I need to remove entire back? It has dozens of plastic clips.

This issue can happen because of malfunction in mixing valves.

What you can do is:

Unplug then open the top of the machine. The fill hoses are connected to the solenoid right where they enter the machine. Turn off the water, and disconnect the fill lines. Take note of how the colored wires are attached to the solenoid. Remove the old solenoid -- usually attached to the back of the washer with two screws, Attach the new solenoid.
Attach the wires with the same colors to the same connections on the new solenoid. Inspect the hose ends and clean any debris from the screens in the hose ends. Reconnect the hoses. Close the machine. Plug it in and turn on the fill taps.

Washer fills extremely slow. Hoses are fine water

Hi, 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.

Turned on machine MW059AU top loader and will not fill with water. Any ideas?

Hi just read your posting.1st turn off the taps to the machine and remove the 2 inlet hoses at the machine end.Now put these ends of the hoses into a bucket and turn the taps on a little bit to see if you are getting any water out of them.Make sure you note where the hot and cold hoses go back.Check the little filters where the hoses connected to the machine to see if they are blocked.If you have water coming out of the hoses and the filters are clear then refit your hoses to the machine and turn the taps on.Now try a hot fill then a cold fill.Now reply back and tell me how it went.Then I can help you rectify this fault on your machine.Looking forward to your reply.

Hi and welcone to FixYa. I am Kelly. When water wont shut off no matter what you do the problem is inside of the water valve assy. Usually there is a small bit of debris in the diaphram center hole that is holding the water passage open.

Here is what you can try to do to clear if BEFORE replacing the eater Valve.

1. Get a bucket
2. Turn off both water supply hoses momentarily
3. Set the water temp to warm
4. Remove ONE hose from the wall connection and place the hose in a the bucket.
5. Turn on the remaning connected hose/
6. Start machine fill cycle and tap the hose connection at the water valve on the back of the machine with either a screw driver or hammer handle.

Timer OFF


7. Place the other hose in the bucket
8. Start Fill cycle.
9. Again tap the hose connection at the water valve
10. Stop timer.
11. Reconnect both hoses and test for water flow with timer off.
12. Start fill cycle
13. Rapidly select hot and cold wash water.
14. STOP fill cycle.
15. Remove each hose individually from the water valve one at a time.
16. Use a knive blade and remove the inlet screen from the water valve. Wash screen under slowly running water rubbing it clean with your fingers. Re install screen. Reconnect water hose.
17. Repeat step 16 for opposite hose and screen.
18. Turn on water supply.
19. Test for proper filling and water stopping by starting and stopping fill cycle.

If it works you got lucky. If you still have the problem you will need to change the water valve. Either one of these water valves will work on your machine:

Thanks for using FixYa.


That is about it

Hot water barely trickling out to fill tub. hard water deposits? or what?

Have you checked the inlet filters on the water hoses ?

If you unscrew the water hoses from the machine, and look inside the connections on the machine, you should see the filters - they are usually a plastic "cage" supporting a gauze or fine mesh. These can be pulled out (you may need tweezers or fine nosed pliers) and washed under a running tap.

If this doesnt cure it, check that the hot water supply where the hoses connect to your house plumbing are actually fully on and flowing properly.

Otherwise, there is probably a fault with the solenoid valve on the machine that controls the flow of hot water in to your machine.

The service light remains on and the washing will not start.

Hi, make sure there's water in tap that feed machine, if there's, lock off you water, remove hose where it's connected to machine. valve on machine where you remove hoses from, check inside you will see strainer, clean any debris that's there, could be blockage of water entering machine, washer will start only when there's water in it. if it were clog up and you clean it, then connect hoses back to machine, and try it. if that didn't work, then you will need to check, water solenoid valve, that's the same valve, your two water hoses connected to, sometimes they burnt out, especially when there's low water pressure in tap, you didn't say what type of washer you got, top loader or front loader, if you got a top loader, fill it manually(bucket) and it will start, if water solenoid valve burnt out, if you got a front loader, you won't be able to fill it manually, if these tips didn't work, you will have to call mechanic, to make other checks. good luck

Hoover washing machine top load, model 550m.5.5kg

water leak from cold hose nothing to do with other problem. tighten hose connection and fit a new hose washer overfilling probably because air chamber blocked. remove lid. you will see a pressurestat somewhere at the top - usually round with anything from 3 to 7 wires and a small tube underneath. follow hose down and it connects to the air chamber. make sure this is free of gung and check hose for splits and has no blockage. to check the pressure stat itself, attach your own hose to the stat and while machine in fill mode, blow down this hose and you should hear a click and water intake will stop
