How do I get into check the pump for blockages on my hotpoint wmud942 washing machine, the key symbol is on all the time with door locked, when a programme is running the pump starts but then when it

I would suggest you fill the washer with water externally up to below the door level and run it in one of the short wash cycles. I would assume it will progress further into wash. This would suggest the inlet water circuit has a fault. I am hoping the laundry water tap was turned on when you were running the washer.

Best to replace the inlet valve and see. Worth spending the 20 quid.

I washed a rug and now the machine is not draining the water.

The drain pump has been block and it requires cleaning including the diverter valve. Disconnect power then lay the machine on its front on a cushioned surface to access the drain pump and the diverter valve at the bottom of the tub. Remove the inlet and outlet hoses of the drain pump and the diverter valve and clear any debris that is blocking the flow of water and preventing it from draining out. Check the impeller of the drain pump and make sure it is not blocked, restricted or damaged.

Also check the diverter valve for the same condition as the pump described above. The diverter valve is where the drain pump and the recirculation pump inlet hoses are attached from. Make sure it is in the drain position while the drain pump is working. Replace the drain pump and/or the diverter valve if deemed necessary.

Cold water won't flow fast. Hot water only is fine warm water is slow and cold water almost nothing. Cleaned filter etc Thank you

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
The best way is to explain this is like this the washing machines water inlet valve has a solinoid for the hot and a solinoid for the cold and when one of these start to fail the will slowly close untill the solinoid will no longer allow the valve to open so this is why your water pressure is getting low going into the machine for the cold side ok?
So what you are going to have to do is to replace the faulty water valve solinoid.
I would really suggest to replace the valve as a whole it ensures that you have a new part.ok?
Hope this helps if yo need any further dissassembly help let me know and i can assist you if needed
Best regards Mike..

I have an f3 and f4 error code on asko washing machine front loader. i know what the error codes are just dont know where they are anyone can help I need it thanks

F3 indicates a problem with the drain pump. At the bottom left of the machine, theres a square cut-out. This is where the drain pump is located. Using a flat head screwdriver or similar object, insert in opening on right side and gently pry open the drain pump cover.
Once the cover has been opened, be careful when opening the drain pump, as there is always a little water left in the drain pump. Before you open the drain pump, place a small container on the floor below the drain to catch the water. Pull the small black hose from the door and let the water drain into the container. You can now open the drain pump to clean it out. Also clean the pump rotor at the back of the pump housing. Replace the drain cover and reconnect the drain hose securely back to its position on the door. Close the cover.

F4 indicates a problem with the water inlet valve. Make sure the water supply is fully turned on. If no water enters the machine, then turn water supply off. Disconnect the hoses from the water inlet valve to see if the strainer in the inlet connection is blocked. Reconnect the hoses and turn on water supply. Hopefully this solves your problem.

Water is filling the tub when not in use

One of the water inlet solenoid valves is faulty -- it's not closting when the "water-fill" function is off. The solenoid valves are the parts the hoses on the back of the wahser are connected to. There are two -- hot and cold.

Cleaning them and replacing wahsers / O-rings / gaskets may solve the problem or may need to be replaced. More info, let me know.

No cold water coming in...screens are clean in valve.

If you have already confirmed that the screens are clean and the fill hoses are not kinked or clogged, this problem is commonly caused by a bad solenoid on the water inlet valve. The valve will have to be replaced to correct the problem.

Is this a FRONT LOADER? Or is this a TOP LOADER?

If this is a FRONT LOADER the following link explains how to access and replace the inlet valve:

If this is a TOP LOADER, the following link explains how to access and replace the inlet valve:

Replacement parts (if required) can be found at the following websites:

The average cost varies, so shop and compare. The first three websites I listed also have helpful exploded view parts diagrams that can help you locate and properly identify the parts you need.

If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

My icemaker has stop making ice, but all the lights on the front are green. it is a whirpool gold side by side, stainless

Check you water inlet filter if you have one, if you do not have a filter then it may be that you water inlet solinoid valve is faulty or has some debris in it. Check at the bottom of the refrigerator, that is where the water inlet solinoid is normally located. The water inlet line will attach to it. Remove it and check to see if it can be taken apart and cleaned. If it cannot be cleaned then it will have to be replaced. Good luck, I hope this helps, Please Rate me, Thanks

Hello there :
Yes you are right this solinoid valve when they fail will fail in the closed positin thus not letting any water into the maching
and yes this is a replaceable part if you can get the back of the machine off and get to the solinoid valve there are 2 or 3 wires that connect it electrically so make sure to mark these wires for identification and get the right part the rest is pretty easy and self explanitory ok?

Replacing water inlet valve

First of all, UNPLUG the washer before attempting any repairs, and follow these steps:

1. You will need to remove the washer top panel by loosening the three screws in the back. With the screws removed, the panel slides back, then off.
2. Turn off the water supply valves and disconnect the water inlet hoses.
3. The inlet valve should be very simple to replace at this point. Disconnect the electrical connections and the hose(s) leading from the valve to the dispenser.
4. There should be a a mounting screw holding the inlet valve to the back panel. Remove the old inlet valve and install the new valve in the reverse order of the steps I just provided.

This is should be a fairly straight forward repair that anyone can accomplish without the assistance of a repairman. If you get confused along the way, please post back and let me know. i hope this answers your questions.
