Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15

1 Answer

Kenmore top load washer Model No. 4225090 fills very very slow.

Just installed new hoses and still have same problem. The out-put tapes have good pressure. The old hoses were very corroded mainly due to the type of well water we have. Are there water strainers on the machine that can easily removed, cleaned and put back in place?

    Do the strainers just pop out? Do they have to be replaced or once they are cleaned can be put back into the proper location?

  • Isobel Speer Feb 01, 2009

    In the same "square" Prior to the model no. is numbers 110. Then a short distance along is 4225090. Those are the only numbers where it says serial number. Hope this help's.

  • Isobel Speer Feb 02, 2009

    I don't have a manual and those are the only "correct" numbers listed for the model no.

  • Isobel Speer Feb 06, 2009

    Thank you very much for your help. I got new screens from the local hardware store and my machine is working great now.

The strainers are located at the washing machine inlet connections where you hooked the hoses.

    They will usually pop out.

    Please reply your complete model number and I'll look a the manual and exploded views.

  • Mark Egan Feb 01, 2009

    Youe missing some numbers off the 422 number if this is a Kenmore.

    4225090 is not coming up, and the electronic catalogs won't do a partial number.

  • Mark Egan Feb 01, 2009

    YES! 110 helps and is needed, but I can't find the 4225090. Double check that. Check the manual if you've got it.

  • Mark Egan Feb 02, 2009

    Well, I am having trouble tracking your machine down.

    But if you look inside the valve, and see screens, then see if you can get them out. If you damage them, then you can always buy screens at the hardware store.

    By all means, be sure to use a screen. You don't want trash getting into the water valve.

    Let me know what you figure out, and please don't forget to rate me. I'll be happy to continue to provide help, but a FixYa would be appreciated.

  • Mark Egan Feb 06, 2009

    Great! Glad to hear it's all fixed up for you now!

    Let us know if we can help you with anything in the future.

I have the Kenmore Oasis Elite Top Loader and I am almost always getting a LF reading on the washer. It never completes a full load. What does LF mean?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

LF = Long Fill

This is caused by either low water pressure or dirty inlet water valve screens. Turn off the water at the wall connection and remove the water hoses at the washer connection. (NOTE hot and cold installed positions) Use a thin knife blade on the outside of the inlet screens and lift them out of the water valve. Wash them under slow running water by rubbing your fingers on both sides of the screen. Once the screens are clean reinstall them in the inlet water valve. Re-connect the washer fill hoses. Just for grins... check the wall connection of the water hoses to make sure there are not HOSE screens at the wall end of the hoses.

(As a retailer of home laundry equipment we always installed fill hose water screens at the wall connections due to the local water supply having bouts of micro debris.)
You can clean the washer screens but if the installer also added at the wall connection hose screens you may still have the problem of a slow fill. Just check.

If after doing the above and you know you have good water pressure you may have a problem with the inlet water valve itself in that debris has got past the inlet screens and blocked the diaphragm passage. IF this has happened the only fix it to replace then inlet water valve.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Washer fills very slowly

First you should remove the hoses and clean the screens in the ends of the hose, some hoses have screens in both ends. While the hoses are removed look inside the water inlet valve there should be a screen in there also remove and clean the screen out. Some screens will not be removable so you will need to clean in place or remove the water inlet valve. If all is clear you will need to check the solenoids on the water inlet valve for power.If the solenoid has power when put in a fill cycle and no water eneters your washer you will need to replace the water inlet valve. Most water inlet valves must be replaced as a unit, so if one solenoid fails you replace the hole valve assembly. These are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at that will walk you thru the testing procedure. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same. If you need help disassembling there are also videos of disassembling most styles. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models will be available. All parts come with installation instructions.

The water is entering the washer, but is not

Either the drain hose is too far into the drain or drain hose is too tight in the drain . Make sure the drain hose is NOT taped to the drain (to keep the drain pipe from overflowing ) All of these will cause a syphon problem , where water will be "pulled out" of the machine by your sewer line , as water is filling your machine for wash (usually rinse cycle).

Water very slowly fills Whirlpool washer

Check the screens inside the water valve. They get plugged sometimes. Also check both ends of your hoses. When installed most companies put screens or screen (1) in the cold water line at the valve.

Hot water is filling up washer very slow

There is a screen in the valve where the hose hooks on. It could be getting plugged up. turn off the water and pull off the hose to see if it's full of particles. I can sometimes clean it out by putting a bucket under the water inlet and spaying a little water from the hose into the opening. If not you may need a new valve.

Have model 88675 with slow hot water fill

I once had this problem. The solution was to remove the hot water hose connection to the washer and look at the filter/screen inserted into the end of the hose connection on the washer machine. This screen protects the washer components from foreign particles entering. You may find a badly-clogged screen, so clean it. I have seen a cold water screen clean, while the hot water screen was clogged...something to do with hot water and minerals or iron in water.
