Turn the water valves off and then unhook the water supply hoses from the machine. Look into the hole the hoses were connected to. Use a pliers to grab the tab on the filter screen(s) and pull them out of the water fill valve(s). Clean, reinstall, and reconnect hoses and turn valves back on. Most often you will find that the cold water supply is the culprit.

My washer yesterday went through wash cycle just fine with warm water. Rinse cycle a few drops drip down and you hear a slight buzz but will not start flowing cold water.


Im assuming you have 2 water valves, A hot water valve and a Cold water valve. I suspect the inline filters are blocked. Switch the water tap/s off and unscrew the pipes off the machine side. Inside the valve entrance, there should be a sieve. using long nose pliers, pull both out and clean properly. Reinstall in same orser. Test now.

Water slow coming into the tub this happens every time you turn on the washer. We cleaned the screens


Check the water inlet pipe is not kinked or blocked. If you can turn water off, remove pipe, place pipe end in bucket, turn water back on, check flow from the pipe to eliminate it. If not that, then the water control valve in the machine might want replacing. By the way, those horrible "quick connectors" that are sometimes used to screw on to the water pipes, can corrode over the internal hole, and prevent good flow, so replace with a proper washing machine valve, and TEE connector.

My fisher paykel gw11 takes an hour to complet cycle! Is that normal? What could be wrong?


Most likely cause is reduced water flow to machine. This could be because the filter on the inlet valve is partialy blocked or because the inlet valve is faulty. Check the valves where the hoses screw onto the rear of the machine. You may also like to check the flow rate of the cold or hot water. Cold water inlet valve problems are not unusual for F&P washers. They can sound OK, but have weak flow..Good luck....Please take a moment and rate this answer.........Nomess

Check the water shut off valves behind your washer. Make sure they are full open (turn counter-clockwise).

Turn the shut off valve off (full clockwise). Disconnect the hose and try running it into a bucket from the valve to make sure you have good water flow.

Check the hose from the shut off valve and make sure it's not kinked stopping water flow.

Turn shut off valve off completely...disconnect hose and look at the end that attaches to the washer. Is the metal screen clogged? Look at the water inlet on the washer where hose attaches and make sure there are no obstructions.

Suspect low water flow rate ., check flow rate from main sink tap , when turned on full this should be pretty fierce. Put machine on normal cool wash , when it is taking in cold water through the soap drawer , pull out the drawer a little , the water flow rate should be allmost the same as the tap , if not investigate , fill pipes at rear etc..

Water keeps coming in past full


Your water inlet valve is not closing causing your water to over flow. Also check your flow switch to make sure that it is still good also. The inlet valve and flow can be found behind the knobs up top. If you are satisfied please rate

My washing machine will not fill on cold water but works on the other cycles


Check first the filters on the inlet water line (both sides). Then, if problem still exist - check that the inlet water valve works(it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine)). If it doesn't work,test that it get power. In case it get power and doesn't work, it should be replaced. Good luck!

In case it get power and doesn't work - You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace it for a new one. Good luck

Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace for a new valve. Good luck

Dishwasher not resetting before new cycle


I have had the same problem. The issue is with the dip tray + overflow detector under the machine. What happened is the dip tray is full of water and the overflow detects this condition and prevents the machine from starting.
It looks like there is no water present in the machine but the drip tray, located underneath, is full. Give the machine a good shake and you should see water.
I solved it easily: just get a mop, lift the machine's front so that it tilts backwards and collect the water as it escapes the drip tray towards the back of the machine. The tray can collect quite a bit of water so you're likely to need a few tilts until it's empty.
In my case, the underlying case had been a previous mistake - we didn't allow the machine to finish completely and water had remained on it. Somehow the water had found its way to the tray. Other causes my be another appliance sharing the same waste pipe and pushing water down the dishwasher's waste system.
