Have you removed the hose supplying the machine to check if the filter inside the inlet valve is blocked , or fo that matter is water being supplied down the hose?
Remember that the hose will be under mains pressure so have a towel handy when you remove the connector.
If it is clean then leave the hose off place your finger on the plastic thread of the inlet valve and get someone to set the machine going
You should feel a slight vibration if the coil which switches the water inlet valve on is being activated (Some of them really make a strong buzzing noise)
There is no electricity in that area so do not be frightened to put your finger on it.
If the filter is clean and the coil is buzzing you should get water going into the machine.
If the coil is not buzzing it has gone open circuit and needs replacing.
Worst case is that the programmer has broken (Very rare)

Washer will not fill up with water


Is water switched on? Is water reaching soap drawer? If it is then there is a blockage in the soap drawer hose to the drum, if no water is getting here check the filters at the water intake valves are not blocked where the feed pipes fit. If these are clear try a cold wash setting to see if you get water filling, if you do then it may be a faulty hot water intake valve.

My Kenmore Elite HE5T front loading washer is giving me an F20 (Water inlet problem - no water or insufficient water supply) code. The Drum fills half way up with water in about 5 minutes and then the...


The F20 error deals with the water coming into the tub. The F20 code indicates the control didn't see any water enter the tub.

  1. There is a flow meter that tells the control water is coming into the washer. If the flow meter is faulty the error usually happens quickly.
  2. Near the pressure switch is a clear plastic hose may be kinked or even have a small hole in it. Check the drain line first and then remove the top of the washer to access the pressure switch and pressure hose. With the washer empty remove the hose from the pressure switch located on the right side of the washer and blow through it to clear any debris blocking the pressure hose or air trap.
  3. If this doesn't help then most likely you will need to replace the pressure switch.

I have an frigidaire front load Mod.# GLTF2940ESO with an recurring E10 error message. HELP!!


E10 code indicates there is no water supply.This can be confirmed by :
  1. Shut off the faucet to stop water supply to the washer.
  2. Disconnect and pulling the supply hose off the washer to confirm the E10Code
    • Opening the faucet and watch for running water



E10 also means that your cold water is coming in too slow, disconnect the cold water hose and check to see if the screen on your washing machine is clogged. If the screen is clean and the hose has good pressure then you will need to replace the water valve on your machine--- this is the piece that the hoses directly connect to.

I have a Kemore 80 series washer model not filling properly


Check the inlet hoses for plugged screens at the faucet ends. The screens are usually replaceable if you can't get them clean in a white vinegar/hot water solution. Check the inlet ports to the washer for similar screens. Hope this helps!

We just bought our Samsung WF409. It won't even do a load without showing the NF signal. We've checked all hoses, etc. The water seems to be going in fine. However, the washer doesn't seem to register that...


NF is a water supply error. The waters supply valves are malfunction or there is something in the hoses blocking the water. Turn the water off and disconnect them and see if there is anything obstructing the water.
