Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a samsung washing machine WD8704CJZ model and there has been low water pressure from the mains. Most times the water is not sufficient to wash the clothes and I see the error message. I want to find out if I can manually fill the machine with water; say through the detergent area. And what volume of water can I pour per cycle, supposing it is possible?

possibly a blockage at the end of the thin pressure hose where it fits onto drum ie;scale or soap powder. Also clean the chamber/hose it fits onto

SOURCE: Water usage per cylce

water usage is about right. top loaders use far more and so does hand washing
only way there would be excessive water usage is if machine were overfilling

SOURCE: Washing Machine Keeps Filling with Water through Detergent dispen

This machine has a water valve that works on vaccuum from the tub. You will see a small clear hose that runs from the side of the tub up to this valve. This valve is adjustable to change the water level in the tub to desired setting on some machines, but if it goes bad, it will not shut off, thus overflowing the tub. Find this valve and replace it if adjustment does not work.

Not sure if you've ever resolved this issue, but I'm dealing with it myself. I have come across this service manual that gives a very detailed illustration of the systems, how it works and how to test it.
Focus on pages 15 thru 25. Hope this helps you.

Samsung model wa 7584C1. has 1E error code have changed pressure switch and tub hose still shows the same error please help


IE - Water level sensor fault This fault code is fairly self-explanatory and tells you that the washing machine has detected an error with the pressure sensor or pressure switch
  • Check water level sensor
  • Check wiring to water pressure sensor
  • Check connections to water level sensor
  • Check main electronic controller

    Showing F01 error code on readout? what does that mean?


    Hi.

    It depends on the model. On Whirlpool built machines F01 is EEPROM error, pump drive error, or main relays error.

    With Hotpoint F01 means defective triac or defective motor.

    On brand new machine the water pressure is ok (not great as we on low pressure) to back of machine but just dribbling out into tub... Model F&P MW612WH 6.5kg


    hi - these machines wioll require sufficient pressure to operate - but low pressure to a certain degree should be fine - takes longer to fill..

    Suggest you double check the hoses to the right valve hot/cold etc - usually there is a filter on the hose and one on the inlet valve, hopefully its not blocked.

    I cannot see any other component that would be faulty - as you say its brand new...

    Error code ( IE ) on my samsung washing machine model wa13g7q1


    1E - WATER PRESSURE SWITCH ERROR

    * Generated Frequency Signal of WATER LEVEL (WIL) SIW (KHz)

    Normal Level = Abnormal W/L Frequency
    Low Level = 30.00 Khz
    High Level = 15.00 Khz

    If the same signal is detected for more than 5 seconds, it is a PRESSURE SWITCH Error. When this error occurs the drain pump will operate for 3 min. and the display will show 1 E indicating a pressure switch error.

    Samsung washing machine gives Low Water pressure error message and interrupts cycle. Checked inlet filters. Sometimes gives leak/flood warning message. How can I turn off these messages?


    You get these messages turned off by fixing the problem.

    Low water pressure is basically one of the valves is not letting water pass through.

    1. Do as you already did and clean the inlet filters. Any kinked hoses?

    2. Adjust the water pressure in the house. Is it too high or too low?

    3. Replace the valves in the unit.

    4. Main board.

    4e code


    I just checked the Samsung website - you can download the manuals if you've lost them (website below). Not sure what washing machine you have but a 4E on model J1043 (which is the machine I have) says to check the following:

    i_1.gif Make sure the source water faucet is turned on.
    i_1.gif Check the water pressure.

    Hope this helps.

    Samsung Washing machine fault


    I have foud a solution 4E error for my Samsung WD7101CKW. Water that comes inside washer is splitted in splitter with valves. One of these valves has a red label on it - this is a valve with restrictor of flow inside. This restrictor is used to limit flow speed mainly for testing purposes of pressure/water level sensor. Because of that restrictor (red cap with two holes of 0,5 mm diameter) blocked flow too much, after some time washer controller thinks that water has too low pressure.
    Unplug washer, disassemble hoses from valves, disassemble valves from the washer (screwdriver needed), drill both holes in red restrictor to 1 mm (use 1 mm drill or just big needle). Assemble in reverse. Will work :)
