Did you hook up all the wires correctly ? Ck to see if washers are installed in the hose ends, and hose clamps are snug. Reset load size to small and try again.

SOURCE: Machine will not fill with water, it acts like

Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tub. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to "make the switch" stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.
Part 5 on this diagram is your pressure switch. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-PAV2300AWW/3048/0153200/M0606007/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

SOURCE: water leaks into tub from fill spout when not in

Hello Stacey, W/D here.
Yes, it can be a fill valve, usually called a solenoid valve. The easiest way to determine which one it is would be to close one of the water supply valves to the washer (one of the faucets at the wall). Close it when you have a slight level already in the washer, and watch the level. If the level continues to rise, the water is coming down the opened line, and that solenoid would need to be replaced.
Best regards, --W/D--

Dishwasher will not fill with water


Hi,

If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Float switch
Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

Water keep filling til machine overflow and need to turn of water inlet valve


if you have to shut off the water supply valve of the residence (water keeps flowing after turning off the washing machine or unplugging the washer), the failed component is definitely a stuck open water inlet valve (fill valve) of the appliance. If the water stopped by pushing the timer or unplugging the machine, another internal electrical control related problem exists, such as a faulty timer assembly or controller board, or a pressure system failure (water level detection/monitoring system) - failed pressure switch (rare), clogged air hose or tub air dome (common in GE top-load washers), disconnected air hose (common in frigidaire top load washers & GE/Frigidaire/Kenmore stacked washer/dryer combo units).

While a simple repair can be done by yourself for a failed inlet valve, usually for $25-$50 in parts/shipping (go to searspartsdirect.com or appliancepartspros.com to look up a replacement fill-valve using your washing machine model number), the water damage potentially caused by the flooding is more important to address.

I recommend contacting your insurance company if there's a bunch of water that flooded your home - the water can cause delayed warping of flooring or cause mold to grow in/beneath your carpets and walls if the water was not immediately noticed and cleaned up (within first few minutes of flooding) - they send out water remediation specialists to dry (if possible), or to repair the damage to your home.

The ice maker isn't working


Hello there,
You should first try to see if water is getting into the ice maker that is to be used to make ice. That is controlled by the water inlet vale. Also check if the tube that passes water into the ice maker is not clogged with dirt.
You need to run a check on your water inlet valve and the defrost thermostat.
Your icemaker's water inlet valve could be filled with ice. If it is, simply thaw the its water tube with a hair dryer to remove the blockage. Be careful to not melt any plastic parts with the blow dryer. An icemaker's water inlet valve has a filtering screen to block minerals and other debris from entering into your ice cubes. It is possible that the water inlet valve's screen is blocked, and not allowing any water through to make ice. Clean out any built up debris you find. You should be able to pop the screen out of place with a screwdriver and then put it back in place with the screwdriver again once it is cleaned. Alternatively, the water inlet valve itself may have become defective. You will have to test it. If the test proves the valve is defective, replace it. .Before you begin to test your icemaker's water inlet valve, make sure you disconnect the appliance's power supply.
  1. Locate your icemaker's water inlet valve, it is typically located behind a refrigerator. Gently pull your refrigerator away from the wall. You may want to place scraps of carpet, of some other soft material below the fridge to prevent damage to the floor. Turn of the water valve's water supply by closing the shut-off valve in the waterline leading to the water valve. Remove the lower access panel on the back of the refrigerator using a screwdriver or a nut driver.
  2. Place a container under the valve to catch any water that may spill from the water valve and its fill tube. Remove the water valve's fill tubing. Loosen the flare nut on the brass fitting that is found on the inlet side of the water valve. You can use a wrench to loosen the flare nut.
  3. Your water inlet valve is held in place on your refrigerator by means of a metal bracket. Use a screwdriver or a nut driver to remove the screw that holds the water valve's bracket to the refrigerator cabinet. Gently pull the water valve out of the cabinet, and remove the tube from the outlet port.
  4. There are two wires connecting to the terminals of your water inlet valve. If yours is a double solenoid water valve, it will have four wires. Be sure to label each wire so that you know where to reconnect them later. Firmly grasp the metal connector of the wires in order to remove the wires. You may need to use a pair of needle-nosed pliers. Do not pull on the wires themselves.
  5. Set your multi-tester to the R X 1 ohms setting to test for continuity. Place each of the multi-tester's leads on a terminal. Your multi-tester should display a reading between 200 and 500 ohms. Closely examine your water inlet valve. The exact ohm resistance rating you should test for may be marked on the valve.
If the test you conduct with your icemaker water inlet valve does not produce these results, then you should replace the component.

If both have been tested and you found out the problem is not from either of them, then i will advice you replace the ice maker mechanism.

Water continues to run into the washing machine through the whole wash cycle and even when the machine is off. I have to keep the tape turned off. other than that the washing machine functions normally.


Hi Welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. You have debris inside your water inlet valve. You can try to clean it by doing the following:

- First remove both hoses from the water inlet valve and remove the inlet screens of the water valve.
(Use a knife blade on the outer part of the screens to remove them from the water valve)
- Connect both hoses to the water inlet valve without the inlet screens.
- Connect ONE hose to the wall faucet
- Place ONE hose in a bucket

SELECT WARM WASH and start wash fill

Water should flow into the washer and the bucket. Use the handle of a screwdriver and tap the hose connections of the inlet water valve for about 20 seconds. (your trying to free the debris from the inlet water valve diaphram)

Stop Fill

Reverse Hose connection at the wall.... i.e. hook up other hose and disconnect the one you had connected. Place the hose you disconnected from the wall into the bucket.

START warm fill

Water should flow into the washer and the bucket. Use the handle of a screwdriver and tap the hose connections of the inlet water valve for about 20 seconds. (your STILL trying to free the debris from the inlet water valve diaphrams)

STOP FILL

- Connect hose to wall connection
- WASH the inlet screens under slowly running water until both sides are clean
- Remove hoses from the water inlet valve and install the inlet screens.
- Reconnect hoses and turn on water supply

TEST HOT and COLD fill

Turn off machine.... IF the debris was freed the water flow will stop when the machine is turned off.

If this flushing attempt does not correct your constant water flow the remedy is to replace the water inlet valve on your washer.

I can help with locating parts ON-Line but will need your model number to help you should you require a water valve.

Hopefully you are able to clear the debris by doing the above. (50 - 50 chance of it working)

Thanks for Choosing FixYa,
Kelly

My sanyo washing machine does not fill in water, its director drain out. model asw 40sit.


If the washer is not filling with water then the water inlet valve needs to be checked.The water inlet valve is also called water fill valve.If the fill valve is faulty then it will not the water to get filled in the machine. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If they're clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you should completely replace the valve. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com

Washing machine wont stop filling with cold water


Since you removed the screens, the sand probably has entered the valve and damaged the spool. It's apparently sticking open. You need to replace the complete valve and keep the screens in place.
