Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines

Model 530 Frontloader - No water

Turn on machine - door lock light comes on, but machine will not fill with water - tried hot/cold/warm - nothing on any setting - water pressure from tap is fine and hoses are not kinked or plugged - any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the suggestion - I guess I should add that all other cycles appear to be working if you turn the dial (timer) through the motions. i.e. spin etc - just nothing that has to have water - this leads me to believe it might be the timer itself?

Bosch frontloader will not spin or agitate


You can check the following things in your washer:

1. Is the washer door or lid closed?
a. If yes, does it filled with water?
b. if no: Please contact the manufacturer to replace the door latch.
And if it is not filling properly then there is a water supply issues like: hot or cold faucets closed or not open completely, hot and cold hoses reversed, kinked or pinched fill hoses, plugged inlet screens or insufficient water pressure

Model NFW7200TW Washer wont fill with water


Are you sure you have both hot and cold water connected? Try turning the water valve on, if you don't have hot water make sure you choose cold cycle. That's the first place I'd start.

My Samsung frontloader washer is broken. The water will not turn off even if I turn the power off on the machine. The only way to turn the water supply off is to turn it off at the water supply coming into...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve which is not closing completely, the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
Good luck,

Washing Machine Rinse and Spin lights are on


its the problem of drum getting blocked by any clothes getting tucked up.also try to move the drum manually with the machine off.if it makes any noise its the faulty motor.or drum has lost its alignment.it needs to be reseated properly in that case. -------------- The water fill valve - The water fill valve is a mechanical and electrical part, the coils on the valve need electricity to mechanically open the valve to allow the water to flow into the washer....myth....the washer pumps water into itself...no, it does not. The fill valve opens and the house water pressure pushes the water into the washing machine.
No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water.

If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can test a fill valve live for 120 volts, power to a fill valve coil and no fill = a bad fill valve. You can also test the coils for continuity, no continuity = a bad fill valve. Some Maytag washers have a fuse in the fill valve circuit, if this fuse let go the washer will not fill. Fill valves can also from time to time stick open and not stop filling. If you have to shut off the fill valves to stop the water from filling in the washer, you have a bad fill valve and you will have to replace it.

No warm or hot water


The easiest possibility is no hot water coming from supply,I have seen the valve turned off,input hose normaly has a filter where it attatches to the machine and they can get clogged.If neither of these solves problem just try hot valve to confirm water supply does work and if so more than likely the valve that hoses are connected to likely source of problem.

HOT WATER WON'T FILL TUB


most inlet water hoses have screens in them.  You could remove the hose from the back of the washer and see if there is water flow.   If there isn't, the hot water valve assembly is defective.  These are solenoid operated valves that admit water into the tub.  They can be accessed behind the washer after you remove the back.

HOT WATER NOT COMING INTO MACHINE


lets see hear.what the water fill hoses are connected to is call the water fill valve.when you select a water temp.,electricty will then go to ither water valve coil or both for warm.so if your not getting hot it could be first that the fill screens at the hose at the water valve is blocked .but most of the time thats not true of hot because minerals drop out in the water heater before getting to the water valve,unlike the cold water.so if screen is clean,next would be voltage to the water valve.if its getting voltage but not working then its the water valve.if its not getting voltage then use the wiring diagram to see what componet is before the water valve.may be water selector switch or timer

No hot water


Make sure your hot water supply valve is on first. If so then try reversing the hot and cold water feed lines and see if you get hot water when asking for cold. The water valve for the hot water side could be bad. Are you familiar with a voltage meter or know someone that can see if you valve coil is getting 120V when the machine is trying to fill with hot water. If not the control unit is faulty. If you do have the 120Vac on the solinoid coil and no water the either the coil is open circuit(bad) or the inlet is plugged. Most generally the problem is in the control knob unit.
