Plug off the mains. Unscrew the top, you will find the valve wher the water comes in. Shut off faucet in wall. Unscrew hoses to change valve. Note which hose goes where.

No cold water Running into Machine


Try checking for debris clogging the inlet of the washer. Shut off the supply water, then start the machine to do a warm wash (to relieve any water pressure in the hoses) for a few seconds - then shut off. Unplug from power and move the machine so that you can have good access to it and then mark and disconnect the hoses. Some machines have screen filters on the hose inlets. Check and clear out any obstructions you may find. It's not unusual to find sand, metal / rust chips, etc as can result from being pumped up from a well or an opened fire hydrant on the street due to a fire or the town simply flushing lines.

Before reconnecting the hoses - place and hold the ends into the tub (if possible) and turn the water on slowly to make sure that water comes out of both. This ensures that there is water flow all the way up to the machine inlets. You'll have to clear or replace any parts (hoses, screen, etc.) as needed to get water flowing.

If still not working - the issue can be a simple hot / cold water solenoid valve replacement ($) to something more involved ($$$). Check out the video to get an idea as to how to check out the valve (it's very similar to all machines).

Good luck!

Washing machine issue


First check that the shut-off valves for the washer inlet hoses are open. Next check for debris in the inlet hose filters (both the washer filters and the hose to water line connections). You will need to take off the hoses and you may need a small pair of pliers to get the filters out to rinse them. Have a bucket below the hoses to collect any water in them. While you have the hoses off, open the shut-off valves and check that you have full flow. If you don't have water flow, check for additional shut-offs or a place where the pipes could be clogged/damaged. If you have water at your faucets, you have fewer places to check.

Put new washer hoses on your washer after you clean the washer inlet filters. There are some washer hoses that are designed with flood prevention in mind. When the hose starts to fail, they actually will seal against any water flow. (We had this happen with a hot water hose before the cold one; it wasn't obvious at first.)
If these steps don't solve the problem, then you probably have an inlet valve that isn't opening. The valve may need to be replaced. However, you should also check the electrical wiring to make sure that the signal to open is being sent to the valve. Sometimes, the control board (clock) fails and gives this problem. If a new valve doesn't work and the wiring is good, you need to replace the control board.
Please add a comment with the make and model of your washer for specific details about the parts. I hope this helps.

My washer wont fill with water what seems to be the problem


Hi

If the washer won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the pressure/water level switch assembly. Inspect the inlet hose coming to the washer for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the pressure/water level switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Can anyone help? the washer will not fill up with water when any program is set. I've checked the hose and taps - they are all on and not kinked. The washer makes a humming noise as if it wants to fill...


try this out,
turn off the water at the taps and remove the hose's at the washing machine side. now get a basin, put hoses into it and turn the taps on, if no water its a plumbing problem.

if water is flowing check the inlet of the valves for debris ( where you screwed hoses off from), if this is clear possibly new inlet valves will be needed

I have WM1832CW washer. I believe the timer is not functioning. It washes, but stays in the spin cycle. Goes through spin for several minutes and then it gets the IE error. The fabric softener never goes...


The error you are receiving is a bad water valve inlet problem. It's typically the cold inlet, but it's better to replace both.


Depending on the type of water you have, the valves could have lots of sentiment blocking the filter screens inside the valve, which can be cleaned, you'll just need to remove the water hose attached, and check.

If your valves look clear, then they have just possibly failed, and need to be replaced.

Meile Novotronic W 828 Washing machine half way through the cycle it stopped and the screen shows a message saying "check the inlet"


It means what it says! i.e. water is not getting into the machine, the inlet hose or path is blocked or the inlet valve has failed. You need to turn off power and water and check it is getting water through inlet hose and that the inlet filter is clear, the filter can be seen on the valve when you remove the hose. You will need to open the machine to check the inlet valve and tubing. Hope that helps please vote

We are getting a H F when we start the washer and water wont start to fill the tub


Hi
Error HF means that a water inlet problem has occurred. If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. If the machine is not filling then check whether both valves at water source are turned ON and inlet hose are not plugged. If the machine is filling fine then chec the pressure switch hose and the drain hose for siphoning (also make sure water is not flowing back to the machine from drain hose). Check wire harness connections to: Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Cold water just trickles in. Water flow up to the


Hello, this is going to be a problem with your inlet valve, First thing to do is remove the inlet hoses from the valve and check the filter screen on both the hot and cold for debris blocking the water coming into the machine. If this is clear then your going to have a blockage inside the valve. Since these valves are factory sealed your not going to be able to clear the blockage, you should replace the valve. Hope this helps...Thanks for using fixya!!! Good Luck!! Mike
