Check the water supply faucet at the back of the washing machine, if water is getting in there reguularly, then the problem may be a defective inlet valve.

    On whirpool there is no 800 or 400 error, the problem may be a defective control board.

    To start unplug the appliance , or trip circuit breaker, and check the water faucet at the back.
    If there is water coming in there, then the machine is faulty.

    To repair the fault there is need to test the inlet valve inside the appliance, if the inlet valve and the wiring harness to controlpanel read fine when tested, then replace the control board or the whole timer assembly.

When you start your machine is the water just go stop go stop,
Just wait for the machine to display an error code on the wash progress lights and beeps constantly.
It could be the Rotor Position Sensor, out of balance switch or lid magnetic reed switch.
Your error code will determine this.
Is your machine beeping & showing a weird pattern of lights on the wash cycle, It is displaying an error code,
To read this error code you start at the red spin light & work to the left only add up the lights that are on. Red spin light = 1 2nd rinse light =2 1st rinse light =4 last wash light=8 4th wash light=16 3rd wash light=32 2nd wash light=64 1st wash light=128

Fysher and Paykel smart drive 051. takes ages to start. cold water flow seems ok. takes 2-3 times longer for full cycle. sometimes stops and hot water light flashes. yours, jagrat.


Hi just read your posting.Now what water temp have you selected for wash?Is it cold, warm, or hot?Sounds like a water flow problem to me.The water valves on your model of machine sometimes sound like they are filling correctly but they only let a little bit of water in.How long does it take to fill your machine and start agitating when you have selected low water level?Please reply with additional information and I am sure I can help you rectify this fault.Looking forward to your reply.

Program switch of Indesit-WD105T starts rotating


I had the same problem. I followed the signal lamp code and replaced NTC dryer sensor. The same error code came again. After that I reprogrammed EEPROM with original program and start getting different error codes. Finally I replaces all of electrolytic capacitors and it just start working with no problem. So, if you are planing to repair indesit than start with capacitors.
Tip: use capacitors with higher voltage than original, because voltage on PCB is around 16v

WFS1071AW is my type of whirlpool front loader


Hello baud Welcome,
You said the water entry into the machine is fine with nothing blocking it. But you keep getting the red light on for "water tap closed". At one point the water did start flowing in but soon stopped and turn on the warning light again. Please suggest how to fix it??

I believe this sounds like the screens are dirty and stopping water flow so it shuts down!
Dry all of the below suggestions.

Washer displaying code message and or tone sounds
“F20” (Water Inlet Problem—no water or insufficient
water supply)
First:
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug
washer or disconnect power.Leave power off for 5 minutes. This will reset the system!
Check the following:
Are water faucets completely turned on?
*****Are screens at inlet hose connection to washer clogged?
Remove hose from washer an clean screens at water inlet!

Are water inlet hoses kinked?
Are water inlet hoses frozen?
Plug in washer or reconnect power. Re-select cycle and press
START. If the problem remains, call for service.

Let me know how you do.
Thank You Huuum

How is the water filling? Slower than it should?LF (long fill) Start by removing the hot & cold hoses off the back of washer ,now look inside the valve for clogged screens,if they are clogged ,clean them.If problem continues replace the water valve.
