Your water valve/cold side solenoid has gone bad. You need to replace the valve. You can call the manufacturer for a replacement, get it from an online website, or through the place that you bought it.

After a little searching I found the part online. This should be a direct link to the part, but if you have further questions please let me know.

I have daewoo dwf 200 le and it not taking the water from the pipe outlet what to do to fix the problem

Assuming you have mains water running to the inlet tap and the tap i is open, the most likely cause is inlet hose connector filter is blocked or the inlet valve inside the washer is faulty.

Hopefully you are able to select the wash program and start the wash cycle. Otherwise the problem could not be in the water inlet or elsewhere.
Refer page 21 on this manual and also check the part number and location of the inlet valve.

Please check the pipe through which water goes in the machine, there could be a blockage or check for any buttons which block water inlet.

Kenmore series 90 plus model # 4217018 water inlet valve

Hi, some users install those horrible quick-connect hose connectors to water pipes, they tend to cut a very small hole, that corrodes over. This will give the exact symptoms you are getting. Also, the flexible inlet hose, if it is kinked/collapsed internally, you can get this. To check this, turn the inlet supply valve OFF, unscrew the flexible inlet pipe from the back of the machine, and hold over a bucket, and turn on the valve. If is trickles, then it has to be either the flexible pipe, or the valve blocked (and NOT the parts inside your machine at all)! Hope This helps, Tony Davis, of LETSFIXIT.

It takes way too long to go through the whole cycle. it says initially that it will only go for 50 minutes, but then takes over 2 hours!

it could b e that you have a themostat problem heater not heating water property hence takes longer, it could also be somthing silly like a crimp in the water inlet pipe restricting flow , faulty inlet selanoid, check to see how long it takes to fill machine , the machine could be genraly blocked watyer pump not evacuating water fast enough blockage in the out let pipe anything that restricts the flow of water in or out can add time to your wash

Front load washer will not fill with cold water and will just stop at the rinse cycle and buzz

Check your inlet pipe on cold water supply, When you dissconnect look inside where pipe fits onto machine you will see a small filter, if it is blocked take it out with great care and clean. always replace it. if your water supply is ok and filter is clear then it will be a faulty water valve. Good luck and feel free to give feed back ok.

Why is my warm water is cold? The hot is hot and cold is cold but warm is cold.

There is too much pressure on the cold feed, reduce the pressure on the cold by partly closing off the tap on the cold.
Or ensure the hot feed is fully open and not blocked, check if there are filters inline - remove the feed pipes at the washer end and look into the inlet valves - clear if blocked.
The inlet valve is common to hot and cold water with only a small pipe to fill the machine, the cold water is being forced back up the hot water pipe due to the pressure you can feel the pipe cool down after running hot then go to warm, if hot water is flowing the pipe will stay hot, if not then cold is going up the hot pipe.

My washer works wonderful buy cold water settings do not work even rinse doesn't work hot water works fine

Would say that the cold fill valve is shot

The machine cannot fill with cold water which it uses for setting the temperature on the 60 degree wash.

The cold valve is also used for rinses

Hot water only will give you a wash which is too hot and will cause the colours to run

Can take the pipe off the back of the machine to see if the cold water inlet filter is blocked

Make sure that you turn the fawcet off and also that you have a cloth handy in case there is still some pressure on the hose.

If the filter is blocked take it out and clean it , it just pulls out but be gentle with it it is only plastic.

If the filter is clean you need a new valve
