Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Samsung b1113j washer

The water started to fill but seemed like only a few cups before the water stopped filling and it sounded like a loud click as if a valve closed suddenly not allowing water to flow. Then the machine clicked and the "wash" light flashes for a minute or so before the E1 code come on. The first few times this happened I used the drain function to empty the drum but now that 2 minute cycle takes about 2-5 seconds to change numbers and the tune that the end of the cycle comes on and the "end" of cycle appears in the display. Have cleaned out the plastic water housings at the back of machine, cleaned out the pump and drains, replaced the pump. Tested the power going to the solenoid and there isn't any power in any mode going to there. Could it be one of those little green diodes in the clear sealed plastic tube beside where the power comes in at? This machine will know how to take itself apart and clean itself soon, I am very frustrated with this and not able to get answers on it! I do hope you can help please.

SOURCE: Washing machine not filling with water not washing but will empty and will spin

like the anchor idea?, no sorry, this does sound like the water is not getting to the machine, so, when you turn the machine on does it make a slight buzzing noise, if so the fault is no water in the pipes to the machine (from the house), if no buzzing check the solenoids with a multimeter for open circuit (removing the 2 wires first) oh and the plug obviously / replace solenoid if needed, i am sure this will cure your problem, if so rate me please, thank you

you know, it sounds not like a mechanical issue. Sounds like your control circuitry is off kilter..

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool front load washing machine model WFW8300SW00

Hay Crab.
what I have found is that the washer thinks it is not pumping out .. if your drain pump is clearly removing the all the water in a good time... then the problem is your pressure switch...it is telling the computer that it still has water in the machine...

replace the pressure switch and it will solve your f21 error.

It is a round unit on the right hand side on top...with a tube and wires going to it...let me know if it helps

catriver Solution #3

Worked for me - here it is

remove the bottom panel and right in front you will see the pump filter. Get a bucket and remove the filter cover, pull the strainer out and see if it's clogged with lint. If the pressure switch on these models detects too much water in the tub (which you wouldn't be able to see) it will not go into a high spin and do this slow tumble you are refering to. Check this first and see if it operates normally, Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: Hotpoint WF321 during rinse and spin, will not go into full spin as machine keeps filling with water.

you should check your pressure switch hose for a pin hole or better still just replace the hose and it should sort your problem out good luck hamstel

Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Isn't Filling Properly.


How old is this washer? You maybe looking at a defective fill valve (where the hoses on the back connect to), or an obstruction in the pressure hose that leads from the Load Size selector to the fill valve. Also, unplug the unit and check the electric connections on the valve as well as the Load Size selector.

Kenmore dishwasher has loud noise during fill. If you let it go, the washer fills. Once filled, noise stops and wash cycle continues. Sounds like plumbing does when there is air in the pipes. Not a...


This isn't a solution but rather a comment, if the problem is happening only during the fill, then it could be the water inlet valve. Perhaps there is a soliniod going in the valve, watch to see if the fill cycle starts to dimminish over time. Does the sound come anytime the washer fills, ie: rinse cycle? if so I would replace the valve, probably 50 dollars would get you a new one and you can do it yourself to save a little more cash. good luck.

Washer trips circuit while filling tub


Sound like the inlet valve coil may be shorted. Remove console and check wires from water valve to control. If wires look ok, the inlet valve has a problem

Doesnot stop filling water


To javed_iqb904, does the drum actually fill or does it seem like that water is draining out as it's filling?


To neonllama19, if it fills with the tap on and the machine off, it sounds like a defective water valve. If it never stopped filling it sounds like a defective pressure switch or hose to the pressure switch is loose or diconnected.
