Why does my washing machine take so long to fill?

Check to see if the screens are clogged on your water inlet valves. Just turn your water off at the Hot and Cold faucets, then remove the water hoses from the back of the wash machine.
The section that the hoses were attached to on the back of the wash machine is the water inlet valve (or valves). Take a flashlight and inspect for blockages on the screens (they're located right in the valve inlets).

If you see grit or calcium build up, you can usually pull the tiny plastic screens out with a pair of pliers and clean them out under running water. Then, put them back in and hook everything back up. Turn on your Hot and Cold faucets and see if your washing machine fills faster.

It should work, but if not, you'll need to replace the water inlet valve (or valves, depending on your model)

Good luck!

The washing machine is overfilling the water?

A defect in the water-inlet valve .The water inlet valve is the device which allows the water in the machine when the machine is turned on.but if the valve is faulty then it will not stop water to the machine even when its turned the washing machine overfills with water.
The valve is located at the back of the washer, and it will have water hoses hooked up to the back of it. Shut off the supply of water to your washer. Disconnect both hoses at the back of the washer. Before removing or checking the need to replace the valve if its faulty. If the water -inlet valve is checked OK.Then the other possibility to check out is the Water-level switch.The Water-level switch is the part that senses the water in the tub.if the water reaches to its required command the water supply to stop.But if the switch is faulty then it will not sense the water and water keeps on filling and at last water overfills due to Water-level switch not working properly. The Water-level switch is located at the bottom of the outer tub in the washing machine. This will help.Thanks.

Where is the temperature sensor on a samung washing machine wf8702rsw?

Such sensors are usually located in the water input assembly where the water is mixed and the computer adjust how far the valves are open for desired water temps. Like adjusting the water valves in the shower for a desired water temp.

My whirlpool estate top load washer ( model tawb600jq1) serial cro708750 type 110 has a very slow drip that begins during the wash cycle and continues after washing is done. How can I fix this?

Water valve is bad most likely. Once the machine gets going in final spin shut off the water supply till you can get another water valve.
This home video of mine shows the basic location of your water valve:

Kenmore elite quietpak2 the when washing machine is not in use the drum fills with water. It flooded part of the garage

You have a bad water valve. The water valve is located where the hot and cold water hoses hook to the washer.Sometimes if your lucky you can take apart the valve and clean it and get it to work. It's worth a try if it doesn't work then you will have to buy a new valve.Hope this helped and thank you for using FIX ya.

Washer only has cold water. Hot water is good to machine but only cold water enters machine on warm cycle, no water ar all on hot cycle.

Hello there
The Water System temperature sensor is normally what is wrong with these units with this condition that you are experiencing
The water system consists of the hot and cold water inlet valves, a water temperature sensor, a water
flowmeter and control and the dispenser distribution system along with a traditional pressure switch.
Water Inlet Valves -
The hot and cold water inlet valves are located at the back of the washer. These valves receive a control
signal from the Central Control Unit to manage the temperature of incoming water. The temperatures
are determined by the specific wash cycle selected and a temperature sensor located in the wash tub.
To improve cleaning of heavily soiled clothing and to provide a sanitizing feature, the water temperature
can be increased through the use of a heating element located in the bottom of the tub

GE Model WBVH6240 washing machine

Might be the water inlet valve. It is located just behind where your water hoses attach to the washing machine. Pretty simple and inexpensive place to start. Shut off the water supply to the washing machine, disconnect the hoses, remove the small cover and you should be looking at the valve the hoses were attached to. Ideally, you should get the part from this site since they provided the money saving info. If you can't figure out part info, next choice would be your local (not big box retailer) appliance store. Just take in the valve and tell them what model machine you have and they should be able to help. There are many useful diagrams and instructions on the web if you need more specifics.

Amana washer has no hot water - cold works fine

There is a solenoid control valve on all washing machines, located where the water hoses enter the machine. If you have a rubber mallet, you can whack the machine gently with the mallet. If the problem is resolved, it was just a stuck valve. If not, then you likely will need to replace the whole solenoid valve control. Typically there are controls for each water supply.

Check first the filters on the inlet water line (both sides). Then, if problem still exist - check that the inlet water valve works(it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine)). If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and doesn't work - You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace it for a new one. Good luck !
