Before you replace the valve, try to back flush it. It may allow you to run water through it from both directions and clear the obstruction. That wil save you the cost of a new valve. Also, get some inlet hose filter screens. They go into the supply hoses, with the narrow pointed end toward the water supply.

You have a bad water inlet valve. There is probably silt in it and it is stuck partially open. Replace the valve and you'll be back in business. Hope this helps!

If you have pressed start or pulled out the knob of the cycle unit and nothing happens I would be checking the operation of the water inlet solenoid . If it is not getting power or it is not opening the valve to allow filling to commence there will be no further action of the machine until the tub is filled to the desired level.

Washing machine will not stop filling up with water


Is the machine siphoning off water as it fills? If it is check the height of the drain hose and make sure it is above the height of the normal level of water that would be in te drum when washing, if the hose is to low the drum will siphon off the water on its own and continue to fill. If the machine is not siphoning off water while filling then you may have a blocked pressure hose or the pressure hose bottle may be blocked not allowing the pressure switch to activate. there may even be a small hole in the pressure switch hose. Check the thin pressure hose that goes from the bottom of the drum to the pressure switch.

hello,
If the motor is spinning very rapidly when it should just be tumbling then it sounds like the tacho has gone or come loose on the motor.It may well need a new motor or there could even be a fault with the main programmer

Machine not spinning out comes up error7 it is a haier hns 1460 tve model , pump is filling up and emptying drum ok , took back cover off belt and spider both fine drum turns if you turn belt what could be...


Check lid switch.

If you have wash action from then the motor is most likely O.K.

If your lid switch is faulty, the machine stops before the spin cycle.

Hotpoint WT761 washing machine - Error code F-10 The machine is filling with water, then signalling F-10, then pumping the water out. So the fill solenoid and the pump are working OK. If I set the machine...


Thats strange, F10 means no cold fill.
Ok back to basics, you can check the pressure switch by taking off the tube and gently blowing into it and I mean gently, you should hear a click if its ok - make sure the other end is'nt blocked, blow it out with a cycle pump near the drum end

Give the door a firm push shut (even if it appears shut already). There is a safety mechanism that stops the door opening when drum is turning and it gets its knickers in a twist sometimes. Happened to me twice in the last 5 years and can never remember how to fix so end up ringing Miele support who are always helpful. Next time I'll look here first!
