Question about Washing Machines
I do hope you can help :)
We have an Electrolux washer-dryer EWD 12141 and the drum is slowly filling with water (approx 2'') after each wash (the drum is clear of water when wash cycle has finished). We use the RINSE HOLD program before each wash simply to get rid of any collected water in the drum. May the problem have something to do with hard water?
Many thanks in advance.
There is only 2 possibilities for the drum to fill with water after it has finished.
Firstly, if the empty pipe is connected to the sink outlet pipe, the water can syphon back into the washer if the pipe is too low, thereby slowly filling the washer when not in use.
Solution is to lift the outlet pipe higher.than the bottom of the sink.
The other reason is the inlet valve is not shutting off properly.
To prove if this is the case, turn the water off at the valve, if it is hot and cold fill, then turn the hot off only, and wait and see if water comes in over a period of time, if it does not then you need to replace the hot valve.
If water stills comes in with hot turned off, then you need to replace the cold valve.
If cold fill only , turn off cold and wait to see if any water comes in, if it does not, then replace cold valve.
Plz rate my solution.
