    Hi
    Do you mean it fills slowly or not enough water enters the drum?

If the inlet hose is not kinked then turn of water supply to the machine, unscrew inlet hose at the rear of the machine. The may well be a little gauze filter. Check that this filter is clear if there is one. If there isn't one and/ or it is clear and the main water supply presure to the machine is fine then you will need to replace the inlet solenoid on the machine

Well I do have a problem with the drainage, the pipeline will over flow whenwwashing machine is draining water out but I have ran a snake down it and didn't seem to find a clog. But the water splashes out...


There must be enough air allowed into the drainage pipe in order for the water to go down...Apparently there is not enough air entering into the drainage line to allow the water to flow quickly...Check the vent pipe on this drainage line. If these are new machines you may have to increase the diameter of the pipe so that displacement can occur as fast as the water is flowing.

WATER ENTRY INTO WASHING MACHINE IS VERY LITTLE, IS IT CHOKE UP


I agree with Charles but add that you should turn off the wall tap/connection to the machine first!!
While you have the pipes off, get a bowl and slowly open the taps one at a time and check you have a good flow in the first place.

My hotpoint wmd962 smells of stagnant water and the clothes come out smelling worse than when they went in?


By the sound of this, the waste pipe is probably connected under your sink. If this is the case then water flows back from the waste pipe and u bend. Just check and ensure your grey waste pipe is raised above the level of the u bend this should stop the problem. Also use a little soda crystals to clean pipes. Hopefully this will resolve your problem.

After washing clothes smell stale. We have tried adding more detergent without success and draining the pump on a regular basis. Any ideas?


Check the drain pipe at the rear of the unit, sometimes the position allows the dirty water to re-enter the washing machine and sit there between cycles. Some units have a rigid plastic holder to ensure the pipe is curved at a specific height so the water empties using gravity as well as the pump. (Same process as syphoning liquid, once the liquid is flowing through the pipe, gravity continues to **** the liquid through) You may also need to check the pipework from which the detergent/softener enters the unit as these can sometimes go a little mouldy. Once you have looked at these two problems, run the machine empty on a high temperature cycle to clear away any disturbed grime.

Good luck, hope I was of some assistance

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.

It wont drain the water away after a wash we


sounds like your pump may be gone, or could be pipe blocked. to check pipe fill machine take outlet pipe at rear of machine and lay this into a bowl. If water flows ok then all pipes are clear. As water is coming through just put machine onto spin cycle and raise hose to see if water will then pump out.

My whirpool aw614 displays FH error display which suggest water inlet probs, clean filters a;though they are spotless, still get same prob, on some programs it will work until it comes to rinse, where it...


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..

Washing maching won't rinse in cold water


hi is this hot and cold water piped machine? ie two connections on rear of machine for hot and cold pipes ? if so are your pipes connected properly on machine and the water supplies? if cold supply is connected to hot supply then wash inlet allows water in washer then washes in cold? but when rinse is due? the elec valve that has hot water pipe connected?? is failing to open allowing water flow of hot on rinse so advise recheck pipes for flow of water from both? when disconnected from machine if flow ok then possible valve blocked/faulty hope you can understand above? if you can give more info on your machine it would help to offer a remedy?

Kenmore washing machine 80 series


check for kinks in the pipe or restrictions to the flow in the pipes before it gets to the washer, if all is ok then check the filter on the outside of the water connector on the machine for dirt

if you confirm all is clear and the flow of water is not the problem before the machine, replace the cold water solenoid
