SOURCE: no/low water inlet. Diag mode both ht & cold lights flash

first test water valve ohms reading, this fault could be either control module or water valve.first open top panel to see valves. turn power off to unit. try putting the hot water valve wire to the cold and the cold to the hot. hopefully they will reach, sometimes they dont. then put panel back on with loose screws. turn power on , select low water ,and hot fill.push start button but make sure your hoses r connected and turned on. the reason i"m telling u how to do this is to eliminate the control board as being faulty if the cold water comes into unit then the problem is your computer, if no water comes in it is your water valve.i hope this helps if u still need help please reply

shut off the water valve,disconnect the hot water hose from the back of the washer,then turn on the water valve to make sure it's not the house water valve first before you start messing with the washer,if the hot water is working correctly then you could have a bad water valve on the washer.let me know what you find

Kenmore eco cycle front load washer. error E70 displays and stops washer. What does E70 mean?


You should check the model number of the washer. If the model number starts 417, then the washer was made by Frigidaire. In that case, the E70 error indicates that cold water is not being detected at the washer inlet sensor.

In some cases, this could be due to connecting the hot water line to the cold water inlet (and the cold water to the hot water inlet). Make sure that the cold water shut-off valve is open. Try swapping the water hoses (close the shut-off valves first). Try new hoses; some anti-flood hoses will restrict the water flow if they detect damage. Thus you won't have sufficient water coming into the washer. (You can check this yourself. Turn off the shut-off valves. Disconnect the hoses from the washer and put the ends into a bucket. Then open the shut-off valves and check the water flow.) While you have the hoses off, check for debris in the inlet filters.

If the hoses are fine, you probably have a problem with the washer's inlet valve or the reed switch that measures incoming water. The inlet valve should be replaced if you find that only hot water enters the washer.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number of your washer for more information. It will be on the inside of the door opening (probably at the top).

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

Cold water tricles in . no normal flow does the washer valve need to be replaced


There are debri screens in many styles of washer fill hoses that can block up. And the end that connects to the back of your machine also has a reachable screen filter up inside the water valve inlet that can also block up.

Disconnect the water fill hose at the machine and check screens ... clean or replace if needed.

The screen are usually attached to the hose washer and will pop out manually with a small screwdriver or knife. Then turn the water valve on with the free end of the hose aimed into your washer tub to make sure you have free water flow from the faucet to the water valve. If all screens are clean and clear but still no water pressure going into the washer after reconnecting your hoses then you can suspect the water valve inlet assembly.

My amana washer puts water in very slowly how can i fix this


Hi. Make sure that the feed faucets that are mounted on the wall are completely open, all the way. Check the filter screens in the hot, and cold hoses for debris, also. If all is well in these locations, this will lead to a failing inlet water valve assembly. Follow the procedure below.

The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it at the back of the washer. Start by turning off the water supply at the valves on the wall. Disconnect both hoses from the back of the washer. Place the hoses into a bucket and turn them on to confirm that you are getting good water pressure and to clear out any debris from the line.

Inspect the filter screens on both the hoses and the inlet valve for debris build up. If you find any debris, clean it out. Use caution to avoid damaging the filter screens because the screens in the valve are not replaceable.

If debris was not present then proceed to the next step of testing the solenoids. Access to the valve may be easiest by opening the top or the back of the washer, depending upon make and model.

There are two wires connected to each solenoid on the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip-on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals ( Be sure to not pull the wires). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

Use a continuity tester or multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. A reading of infinity indicates a bad solenoid that must be replaced. Different brands and models will have various measurements, but the valve should show some resistance if it is functioning properly. Test the second one in the same way as the first. Your symptoms indicate that the valves are not opening all the way.

Problem with ge washer machine model wdsr2080d2ww will not fill''


HI. First you will need to check the water fill faucets to make sure that they are turned all the way on.If the faucets are on, then move on to the hoses. Check the hoses for kinks. Make sure the hoses are straight, and not curved. If all checks out Ok here, i would advise to move on to the filter screens.

The hot and cold water from your home is connect to the water inlet valve on the back of the washer. In each end of the water supply hoses there may be a filter screen to catch debris and prevent it from damaging the washer. The water inlet valve also has filter screens. If the filter screens become clogged, the result is low water pressure, no water or the wrong water temperature,as well. The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connecting to it at the back of the washer. Start by turning off the water supply at the valves on the wall.

If you are getting good water pressure and you find no build up of debris, then the inlet valve itself may be faulty.

TESTING PROCEDURE FOR THE WATER VALVE ASSEMBLY

Cold water enters washer very slowly


First - check the water inlet hose screen for calcium or rust build-up.

2604cae.jpg

If cold water is filling slowly, take these steps:
  1. Unplug the washer.
  2. Turn off the cold water supply faucet.
  3. Remove the fill hose connected to the back of the washer.
  4. Checkthe fill screen on the cold water inlet valve for debris or depositsthat can restrict the water flow. If necessary, you can carefully pullthe screen out and clean it. Flush the inlet thoroughly and replace thescreen. NOTE: If debris makes it past this screen, it can cause thevalve to leak and cause a flood in your laundry room. Monitor thewasher for this type of problem is you pull the screen out and clean it.
  5. Placethe end of the hose in a bucket and briefly turn on the faucet to checkfor proper pressure and flow from the cold water hose. If waterpressure from the cold inlet water hose is bad, check the hose forclogs. If the hose is okay, then I recommend calling a plumber to checkthe water supply to your washer cold water faucet.
  6. If the above checks do not help you resolve the fill problem, you will likely need to replace the inlet fill valve.

Your cold water fill valve (mixer valve) solenoid has failed if after cleaning - the condition remains.

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.
