Water will not turn off


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Water Inlet Valve If the washer is overflowing and power is shut off to the washer, the water inlet valve has failed. Replace it.
Pressure Switch If the washer is overflowing the pressure switch might be defective. The pressure switch is attached to a small tube which is attached to the outer wash tub. As the water level rises the air pressure in the tube increases, once the set water level is reached the pressure switch turns off power to the water inlet valve. Check to be sure the air tube to the pressure switch is clear before replacing the switch.

Low Water Pressure from House Supply If the washer is overflowing the water pressure to the water inlet valve might be too low. The water inlet valve requires a minimum of 20 psi to shut off properly. If the pressure is lower, the valve may not close fully when the power is shut off. This results in the valve leaking water into the washer and causing it to overflow.

I have a Miele SCU 648. The "start" and "end"(or


It is possible that a low water pressure can increase the time for the program and so this can lead to the program contrroller hanging up to show the flashing.
So remove the inlet and the water line to the inlet, check the filter and the inlet valve. If the pressure seems good , check the flow when the program starts.
Also counter check on the water level sensor, the drain pump/valve. finally check the winding on the heater using a multimeter, check the power to the heater during the program.

I am getting E10 error code, there is no water going into washer.


Hi

Error E10 in Frigidaire washer means Long Fill. It means that the washer is taking a longer time to fill; it may be due to low water pressure, due to faulty pressure switch or due to faulty water inlet valve. Please try and clean the inlet filter screen. If this doesn't resolve your issue then check the connections at Water inlet valve. Make sure the connections at the fill valve are firm and check the continuity using multimeter. To access the fill valve take the two screws in the back that are connected. Now, pull the back of the cover towards you and lift it off. Check the three multicolored wires connected to the inlet housing that you have to remove. Next remove the two screws on the inlet housing. Now, pull the housing from the detergent cabinet then back towards it to remove the entire inlet unit. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

I just bought a kenmore elite oasis washer last night and I tried to do my first load and I keep getting a LF code.


LF Error code: LF stands for long fill and occurs when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on.

All washers are designed to operate with a water supply pressure of 20-100 PSI. When the pressure drops below 20 PSI the washer can have the following problems:

* Slow Fill- low water pressure reduces the speed at which water flows into the machine.
o Verify the pressure at all other water sources in the house (i.e. sinks, showers, etc..). If you find other places where the pressure is low, the problem is not with the machine but with the water supply.
* Continuous Fill- The valve may not fully seat under 20 PSI which would allow for a constant flow even when the machine is not supposed to be filling.
o Contact the water company to verify the pressure being supplied to the house.
* dispenser- Needs a minimum amount of pressure to function. May dispense constantly, at the wrong time, or not at all.
o A plumber may need to be consulted if the pressure is found to be too low.

Things you can check :

* Are the Hot and Cold water faucets turned on
* Are the water hoses kinked
o Make sure all the hose are straight and able to flow water
* Are the screen inside the water valve plugged
o Inlet valve should be free of debris and rust.
o Turn off water and remove the inlet hoses from washer.
o Remove any accumulated film or particles.
o Assure rubber washers are in the end of each inlet hose.
o Reinstall hoses, turn on water and check for leaks.

Error codes can be caused by a Power Surge or other electrical anomaly,attempt to return the washer to operation by following the Hard Reset procedure below.

1. Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
2. Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
3. Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the display.
4. Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts

My washer fills with water but overflows, the water wont stop at proper level


Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve. Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

How do you change the fill time setting when you have low water pressure, model w3725


You dont !

The washing machine has a level switch which activates when the water level creates a certain pressure in a tube leading to the switch.

The machine should just sit there until it gets the water to work with that the programme asks for

Make sure that there are no restrictors fitted to the Cold Water inlet valve

It was common for them to have a washer with a smaller hole in the centre than the normal opening for the valve

This cut down water flow in areas where the pressure was OTT

You need to disconnect the fill hoses , take out the filters and look into the opening with a torch

You can take out the restrictors with a piece of strong wire bent over to form a hook

Miele W1926 water light flashes


That happened to me too. If the machine is a few years old and the hoses are not kinked it's possible the water inlet valve needs to be replaced. On this machine there is a triple cold water valve and a single hot water valve. Mine needed the triple valve and it is about $300 if I remember. Check to see if it's the cold or hot water valve by looking at the water filling through the soap drawer for cold or hot water cycles. When the valves go bad they run but the output is very low which causes the light to flash because it can't fill to the correct level.

You can get to the valves by taking off the top. If you don't feel comfortable working on your own machine have a professional do it.

Miele washing machine


All Miele washing machines and dishwashers need to fill in a required time. Flashing inlet (Tap icon) indicates that the machine can not fill in time. There are filters in the end of the hoses which connect to your water supply from the machine and filters in the inlet valves which you can get at by removing the hose from where it fixes onto the machine it'self. You will need some long nose pliers to grab the little tab on the small filter to get it out. Clean all filters and hoses. Still same problem then check the pressure of the water coming into the machine. There should be a good pressure coming out of the hose and will be difficult to stop the flow of water with your finger.
