Not getting cold water. I think it might be the cold water solenoid. If this is the problem, how big of a job is it to replace the soleniid and where can get the parts and instructions. Estate TAWB600EQ Washing Machine.

Re: Washing Machine is not getting cold water
It accesses from the back at the valve. Not to sound silly but when installed they 99 percent of the time install a filter in the hose is this possibly plugged. And it is not very difficult a few small tools and water off...

most likely a problem with the diaphragm of the water shutoff solenoid
diaphragms are available or get a complete unit
if it has hot and cold solenoids ( hot and cold water hoses ) and you are not using the hot just swap the hoses over and only use the hot water settings
that way the cold water comes in through the hot water solenoid
clair you may have a cold water problem, it may have filled with hot water and gone through wash cycle but as it got to rince it only fills with cold water ,the buzzing may be the cold water solenoid staying open and if there is no water passing through it will make a buzzing noise,
1.check the cold water valve # is on . it's what the blue /cold hose is connected to, also in some hoses there is a filter ,it's possible it could be blocked but unlikely.
2. check the cold water hose has not bend in half from the wall valve to the washing machine,this will stop the water flowing.
3. or it's possible you could have a faulty cold water solenoid valve.**
cold water pipe on wall> water valve# > blue cold water hose > * *cold water solenoid valve on machine.
Check the supply hose filter, and the filter on the intake of the solenoid. Switch the wires on the solenoid to see if rinse will put hot water into the machine, the contact at the timer may be going bad. While reversed, see if it puts cold water into the wash, that will test the solenoid.
There are two solenoids back where the water enters the machine ( probably an ugly blue color). Possibly the Cold water solenoid failed or the wire feeding the solenoid fell off. Google Washing Machine Solenoid and you can see what it looks like. The Water hoses literally attach to it
Hello, Your unit is not getting cold water most likely due to the water inlet valve. There are two to three screws located on the rear top that secure the cover to the unit. If you unscrew these screws and then slide the top panel towards the rear of the machine and remove the top cover off the unit this would give you access to the water inlet valve. Assure also that there is no debris where the hose connects into the back of the water inlet valve on the cold side. Sometimes calcified water can leave deposits in the valve preventing water from flowing into the machine. Here is a video of how to test a water inlet valve in a top load washer the test is very much the same the units are different though click this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Zc6NCTAF1U if you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations. Thanks
sounds like the solenoids in the back aren't letting water in. The solenoids are what the hoses are hocked onto. They are like an electrical tap. These are not pumps, water is only pumped out of a washing machine. Some reasons why water is not coming in:
- Taps are not turned on (Keep it simple), turn taps on.
-Hot, or cold solenoids are not working. (Lets hope chances are only one has broken). Swap cycle options, try just hot, or just cold options. If one works and not the other, a solenoid is not working. just put either hot or cold on the solenoid that is working.
Note, some new machines only have one hose at the back, this is because they heat the water internally - like dishwashers. If this is the case, a new solenoid can be purchased and installed.
-Another reason might be that solenoids aren't getting power. This cold be because the trip switch in the door. A common problem. Think of the trip switch just like the light in the fridge. When door is opened, switch is opened. If u can test machine on spin cycle ie, the machine spins, then this is not the cause. Some appliances even have switches on soap draws so check that out aswell.
hope this helps
Usually it's the fill level sensor tube but in this case I think your cold water solenoid is getting stuck open.
you can diagnose this by switching the wire harness from the hot to the cold and see if you get the same effect for the hot water. If you do, You may need to replace the control board if not, You can just replace the water inlet solenoid.
Yes, if the screens are clean then it is most likely the solenoid, most likely on the cold water side. It can be tested for continuity with a multimeter or ohmmeter. A lack of continuity will mean a bad one and the water inlet valve assy will need replaced. Best wishes.
The solenoid comes as part of the fill valve assembly. It's fairly simple to replace, but before you attempt replacing the valve try turning off the water supply and disconnecting the hoses from the back of the washer first. Inside the valve assembly on the back of the washer are water valve screens. These screens can get clogged with sediment which will restrict or stop water flow. If you've never checked them or cleaned them before this could save you a little bit of repair time. Simply use some distilled vinegar and a cotton swap and thoroughly clean each screen. If the valve still does not produce water flow, the part number is 878761 an runs about $25. Let me know if this helps you.
