Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

Open Question

Aw0 r 5406 "Water Tap Closed" red light comes on, but the water tap is fully open, any Ideas please

Set the washing machine up as usual for 60 deg wash, pushed the start button and machine started the wash cycle, as displayed on the bank of lights above,then instead of going to the rinse cycle, the "Water Tap Closed" red light comes on and the machine stops. If your push the start button again the same thing happens again,if you push the reset button it has no effect, it just stops.the water tap is fully open as always.the only way out is to set it manually to rinse.Any Ideas please?

SOURCE: Washing Machine keeps stopping and says "water tap closed?"

Wonderful!! Would you mind giving me a "problem solved" rating -- there should be icons on the screen to do that.

thanks...

Hello Friend, I think your machine will work properly if you add a water line splitter. You would connect to the single cold water tap and on the other end you would have two water hoses . Connect one hose to the cold water inlet of your washer and then connect the other hose to the hot water inlet. You can get these at Home Depot. Happy to help, Tim.

SOURCE: Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin

Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x

simply put, washers dont **** water from your tap they simply use a valve that opens or shuts to let the water flow through from your taps similar to u turning your tap on just this is done electronically in your washer, if uve got no water coming in your valves are stuck or broken, they are cheap and really easy to fix

This is indicating a problem with the water supply, check the inlet hose/s for a restriction or kink in the hose/s.
Make sure the tap/s are fully turned on, and that there is a good water prerssure.

Hello baud Welcome,
You said the water entry into the machine is fine with nothing blocking it. But you keep getting the red light on for "water tap closed". At one point the water did start flowing in but soon stopped and turn on the warning light again. Please suggest how to fix it??

I believe this sounds like the screens are dirty and stopping water flow so it shuts down!
Dry all of the below suggestions.

Washer displaying code message and or tone sounds
“F20” (Water Inlet Problem—no water or insufficient
water supply)
First:
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug
washer or disconnect power.Leave power off for 5 minutes. This will reset the system!
Check the following:
Are water faucets completely turned on?
*****Are screens at inlet hose connection to washer clogged?
Remove hose from washer an clean screens at water inlet!

Are water inlet hoses kinked?
Are water inlet hoses frozen?
Plug in washer or reconnect power. Re-select cycle and press
START. If the problem remains, call for service.

Let me know how you do.
Thank You Huuum
