Re: Haier XQB55-10 : water leakage from inlet hose...
Inside the connector is a flat washer and a mesh filter. one side of the mesh filter has a strip/bar across it, this filter goes into the base of the connector with the strip/bar upwards, make sure it is seated in the connector properly.
Then fit the flat washer ensuring that it is clean/undamaged and lying flat at the base of the connector, the mesh filter strip/bar has at either end a small lip, the washer goes underneath the two lips, if it is placed on top of these lips it leaks!
Re: Haier XQB55-10 : water leakage from inlet hose...
You must examine your machine hose to see if it is blocked. Clean out the fine nets in the hose as well as at the machine entry (inlet water entry). Clean well with a tooth brush, refit carefully. Water should be in good pressure for machine operation.

Hi Lina, accordin to the Haier website, E4 stands for "water inlet problem. Water can not inlet or cannot reach the selected level in a proper time.". Unless the ingoing water pressure is really low, I think you need to service the machine. Anyway, hope this helps!
An IE error code will appear if the washer has not filled with water in approximately 8 minutes.
Are the water valves opened completely?
If an IE error code appears on the washer, check to make sure both hot and cold-water taps are open completely. After both valves have been opened, unplug the washer for 10 seconds and retry the wash cycle.
Are the inlet hose filters clogged?
There are filters on the inlet hose connections of the washing machine. They are intended to filter away mineral deposits from hard water and other debris from getting into the unit. If clogged, water will not flow through these filters into the washer. Turn off both the hot and cold water taps, disconnect the inlet hoses from the back of the washing machine, and clean the inlet filters gently but thoroughly.
Are the inlet hoses attached properly?
If the inlet hoses are not attached to the machine correctly, it will prevent proper water flow to the washer. Turn off the hot and cold water supply then disconnect and reconnect the inlet hoses. Ensure that they are threaded properly. After the hoses have been reconnected, open the water taps completely, check for leaks, and unplug the washer for 10 seconds and retry the wash cycle.
NOTE: The inlet filters are inside the hose connections on the back of the washer. Because of their small size, take care when removing and cleaning the inlet filters so that they do not break.
This E4 Phenomena means "no water": No or slow water fill (not reaching the full level in 15 min), therby computer sends display message "E4" Reasons: 1) The house water tap is not open, or 2) This is the most common E4 reason- The water inlet valve (that the hose is connected to) is blocked. 3) The water pressure is too low and the flow is too weak. Solutions; 1) Open the water tap, then push the START/PAUSE button again. 2) Clean the water inlet valve. Shut off house water supply on the wall then, unscrew (lefty loosy) each hose from the house and the machine and look for a screen and clean the junk away from the screens. You may have 1 or 2 screens depending on the hose there may be 1 screen where the hose connects to the house and another screen inside the machine valve. Then, return hoses and turn on the water pressure again, Then push the START/PAUSE button again. 3) Wait for the normal water pressure to return to the house before use.
The Haier hwm1070kFL error 5 indicates a problem with the incoming water. Either the water pressure is low, any filters in the inlet system are clogged or the water is draining out of the unit (pump malfunction or suction from the drain hose being below the water level in the washer).
The first thing to check is the incoming water pressure. Turn off the valves for the incoming water. Then disconnect the hose from both the washer and the pipe. Check any filters. Reconnect the hose to the pipe and place a bucket below the hose. Turn on the water valve and check the flow rate. (You may want to replace the hose while you have it disconnected. Many modern hoses are designed to seal themselves if they detect leakage. This will stop or reduce the flow of water through the hose.)
Next make sure that the drain hose outlet is 80-100 cm (~32-40 inches) from the floor.
If these steps do not help, you need to check the inlet valve, the pressure sensor and make sure that the drain pump is not moving the water out of the washer during a fill cycle. These may be steps for a service technician.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (I live in an area with a rural water district. It isn't uncommon for the water pressure to drop due to problems in the system. Until the maintenance person can find and fix the leak or pump issue, a washer with sensor like this that detects how long it takes to fill the tub will give the low flow error and stop working.)
For Haier machines 'error 5' means ' the required water level has not been reached within 8 minutes', or in other words it isn't filling quick enough!
If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call and a check that it isn't the control PCB ;-0(
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
The 'FH' fault is listed as "Water Inlet Fault" in the manual. When the windows in the inlet hoses come up with their red dots, it means that the leakage valve has tripped and shut off the water at the tap. No water will flow into the machine.
This can be confirmed by first turning the taps off, then taking the hoses off at the machine end. While holding the loose ends of the hoses over a trough or sink, try turning the taps on. No water will come out.
I've had the same thing happen to us. We were quoted $66.00AU per hose for replacements.
I'm going to try to fix one of these hoses today. They have a sponge in them which expands when it gets wet and shuts off a valve. I'm going to try getting the sponge very wet and squishing it back down and hopefully opening the valve again.
Hope this helps.
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Turn off the water at the wall connection and remove the water hoses from the inlet water valve. Remove the inlet screens and wash them under slowly running water by rubbing your fingers over them. Reinstall the inlet screens and re-connect the water hoses to the machine. Remove the hoses at the wall connection and make sure the installer has not installed inlet screens on the hoses. If there are inlet screens on the hoses also clean the inlet screens. Then reconnect the hoses.. turn on the water and test for leaks then test the machine.
This should get you going unless you have relly low water pressure in the home.
