Id be curious as to the age of this machine, because the newer models have what teh call adaptive water temp sensors that will optimize the water temp automatically.. your hot water may be "too hot" and your cold can be "too cold" and the valve corrects to a preset temp. this sounds like whats happening

Hot water hose pulsates when washer is filling up in warm setting.

It's the pressure from the hot water supply to your machine, if you fill from hot water tap, turn tap down a little to reduce the water flow. Should be OK then

Pulsation water lines

What you are experiencing is known as "water hammer" It is caused when flowing water under pressure is turned off rapidly. The pipes then shake from the shock of the shutoff. Properly routed and secured water lines are less prone to this anomaly. You can install water hammer arrestors on the washer supply lines. They can be purchased at almost any hardware store or home center. Water hammers can cause pipe joints to fail and should be avoided if possible. The one below connects directly to the washer supply fitting. You then connect the washer hose to it. You'd need one for the hot and another for the cold line.

Turned on whirlpool duet washer, came back to FH as realized forgot to turn water on. Have tried all the suggestions, but each time I plug the machine it tries to drain water and the motor hums. I cannot...

Make sure both hot and cold water supplies are turned on. Select a cold wash cycle and start the wash cycle, do you get cold water? Now select a hot wash cycle and start the wash cycle, do you get hot water? If you only get cold water replace the hot water fill valve. If you only get hot water replace the cold water fill valve. If you get neither replace both fill valves.

During the water fill cycle there is not a steady flow of water entering the machine when on a HOT or Warm cycle.The water is Pulsating through the hoses.Is this normal for a wtw 5600 whirlpool washer???...

Hi Charlie in Philly,

Yes it is normal to answer your question in short. However, since it may not be how your old machine operated or something you are not accustomed to, I'll explain in brief.

Most automatic washer made today have a "thermistor" built into the fill valve, or in series with the fill line from the valve. As a result you may notice either the cold or hot pulsing on and off, and this is done as the thermistor senses the water temperature to attain the desired water for the selected cycle. It also makes the washer more energy efficient and more well balanced from a functional stand point, i.e. it will only call for the desired amount of hot water as opposed to the older washer's which would simply fill at the rate at which the home water supply could provide, whether hot/warm or cold selected.

Hope this answer's your question and enlighten's you to the "why" as well.

No water , when running, loud pulsating noise

Usally when there is no water comming in it is the water inlet valve. First turn selector swith to see if it is only hot or cold water that is the problem. Take the hoses off the back of the washer and make sure that when you turn the water on that there is lots of water pressure comming out of the hoses. If ok. its probably the water inlet valve. There are two screws holding the valve from the back. Access the valve. Remove the fill hose from the valve. Remove the four wires off the valve and put on the new valve. Reinstall fill hose and install valve with two self taping screws you took out. Put your hoses back on and your ready to go.

Displaying LE

Lg has a water pulsator which rotates while filling up with water. If pulsator is faulty, you will get this LE indication. Pulsator is found on bottom left hand side of unit when cover is removed. 2 clear water pipes are connected to it and there is a small plug in that has 2 wires. Remove plug in first then remove from the pipes.

Kenmore 80 series model #110.26882503 fills slowly

For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

Kenmore 80 series model #110.26882503 fills slowly

Yes, the only other thing I would do and you may have done this is to put the hose directly over in the washer tub and turn the water on to check the flow. If that's good then replace the water valve.

Water filling

Before you replace the water valve itself, take the hot water hose off and inspect the screen at the valve inlet. There could be a lot of grit restricting it. If the screen is clear, than I would be in agreement with you that it is the valve itslef..hope this helps you.
