WATER ONLY FILLS 1ST TIME ON ANY CYCLE

WHEN THE WASH CYCLE STARTS THE WATER FILLS BUT AFTER THE FIRST DRAIN THE WATER DOESN'T FILL ON THE REST OF THE CYCLES. IF YOU TURN TO ANOTHER CYCLE IT STILL DOESN'T FILL.
IF YOU TURN THE TIMER TO OFF FOR A WHILE THEN TURN IT TO A WASH OR RINSE CYCLE IT WILL FILL THE FIRST TIME THEM NO MORE.

    it sounds like it trying to do something

  • llsummers528 May 17, 2009

    this is a dishwasher but i'm not sure if the sprayer arms are moving or not.

  • llsummers528 May 17, 2009

    so this valve will work sometimes and not others? i took that valve out and applied 120 volt to it and got water to come out.

    on the other hand i had a tester on the vavle and cycled the timer and got voltage to the valve but no water. i assumed something else might be causing this not to let water go through it like a switch somewhere.

Hi, After the first cycle, and after it drains/spins, does it start agitating when the next load of water is suppose to be filling?
Please let me know so I can assist you further. Sounds like the pressure hoe from the tub to the water level switch is plugged.

Thanks
Vic

    Is it a faint hum or is the agitator actualy moving back and forth?

    Ok, Sorry I miss understood. It sounds like the inlet vavle is over heating and will not open until it cools down. You can find the inlet valve behind the panel (front left corner) below the door. If you remove that panel. you can start the d/w and listen for the valve. The other option is to put a voltage meter inthe connector to the valve and watch the readings later in the cycle. If you get 120V and no water. change the valve.

    I hope this helps

LG Turbodrum DD 8.5kg WT-R852 washing machine, will not completely fill with water to water, to initiate the wash cycle, wash process stops there.


THE WASHER IS OBVIOUSLY HAVING A PROBLEM DETECTING THE WATER LEVEL? IT DETECTS AS FULL WHEN ITS NOT AND THEN GOES INTO DRAIN CYCLE? THE FILLS AGAIN? I would suspect the water pressure switch but if it was detecting a full cycle it would sent it into wash cycle? the water inlet valve only allows the amount of water it is told to send in and does not control the amount or drain cycle. Im not sure here but Im thinking maybe the water level switch may be flawed, the one that has low-medium and high? all these can be checked with a multimeter

I have a Maytag Neptune TL (FAV6800AWQ , Serial # 10178127EC) that starts and stops after the wash cycle begins. It fills up fine but starts and stops/pauses and the time doesn’t lapse. On a normal load...


You have a Series 10 machine 1st two digits of your s/n.


Seems like you have the Service Manual or troubleshooting guide.....can't get that from Servicematters any more I feel you have some drive system binding.

I helped a owner on another forum similar problem. Google this "Neptune TL Spinning Issue Will Not Proceed". Did a lot of up front testing in the end he ended up replaceing the Outer Tub Bearings, the Clutch Pulley.

Start by opening the washer lid and see if you can rotate the wash basket with one finger in the CCW Spin direction. There should be only slight resistance to rotate the wash basket CCW. During the 1st water fill of the wash basket the Control Board will spin the wash Basket slow rpm you can enter Service Mode and observe the rpm on the LED console.

Next start a Quick Spin test and note the highest RPM range the machine will spin up to. Looking for Outer Tub Bearing resistance.

I would suggest another DIY forum to work thru this issue if you are going to DIY. This forum is hit and miss we posting pics and e-mail notification for support......Rich

Sometimes my new machine will not fill with water


make sure that your drain hose is coming up ( 90 degrees ) from the base of the machine. and then drains near or close to the height of the machine. the drain hose at least needs to be at a 45 degree angle to fill properly otherwise it will continuosly drain. hope this helps.

My Washing Machine fills and drains at the same time, what can i do? I have just about the same problem. We had put in a new drain line for my washer. This new line has been on for over a month W/O any...


Yes, it is a siphon problem.
Check the hose where it goes through the wall. It may be pinched and cutting off air.
If air cannot enter the hose it will siphon. If the hose is too low it will siphon.

Spin/drain cycle won't start


If the timer gets to the rinse cycle and stops,
Check the lid switch for continuity. If no continuity replace the lid switch.
If the timer continues through rinse and spin without doing either, replace the timer.

Normal wash cycle- tub fills (?), then comes a loud hummmm and nothing happens. I noticed water level didn't reach heater coil and added water until limiter switch clicked. Still just a loud hummmm....


You are an expert enough reading this. But with a terrible complicated dishwasher. First clear the waterlevel problem.
Rest is a result. You do not need me, join us. Next time buy something more plain.

Thanks!! My estate washer sometimes will fill, most of the time not. I have found if I set it to rinse It starts the 1st cycle and fills the tank, but, after that I have to fill the tank with a garden hose...


If you have ever experienced the problem where you washer continually fills but never reaches the proper level (not an overflow). Or, the wash tub water level cannot be maintained, because the water level keeps dropping. You may be experiencing what is known as “siphoning”. This occurs when there is no air gap for the drain line at the standpipe. The standpipe is the drain pipe at the wall where the washer drain line is placed. With no air gap, a vacuum is created, and water will begin to drain from the wash tub prematurely. To prevent this from occurring, follow this advice:

* The standpipe should be 2 inches in diameter to allow a sufficient air gap between the top of the standpipe and the drain hose.
* The standpipe should be a minimum of 34” from the floor, and should not exceed 72 inches in height.
* DO NOT seal the top of the standpipe. Many consumers seal the standpipe in the belief that this will prevent overflows, or get rid of drain odors. This often creates more problems than solutions.
* DO NOT place the drain hose too far down into the pipe. Water stays in the drain trap area of the standpipe. If the end of the drain hose rests in this area, no air gap is created, and this can also cause siphoning. 4 to 6 inches is sufficient.
* The drain hose length must not exceed 10 feet in length. Excessive drain hose length can cause drain problems and back wash.

Kitchen Aid KUDI230BAL0 - no fill on rinse


i would check for apossible drain issue, perhaps siphoning water out after 2nd fill. make sure you have prper high loop insatlled in drain hose, could also be a bad water fill valve, solenoid overheating and not opening properly after 3 fills
