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

E13 error code on my electrolux washer what does it mean


You didn't specify model of your washing machine.
For Electrolux that usually means water leaks (Maximum overall water fill time exceeded (sum of all water fills between one drain phase and the next to avoid exceeding the maximum volume).
Could be:
Drain tube improperly positioned; Water pressure too low;
Water fill solenoid valve faulty; Water circuit on pressure switch is
leaking/clogged; Pressure switch faulty.

My Simpson ezi sett 7.5 always fills to full even when set to low. i have replaced the pressure switch and still fills to full.


Check the rubber hose from the pressure switch down to the bowl for any holes or splits allowing the air pressure to escape. Also check that water valve is stopping the flow. Start to fill then press pause. Water flow should stop immediately. If it keeps flowing or is slow to stop then replace the inlet valve. Try it several times to be sure.

Can low water pressure cause my toilet cisterns to keep running


NO
persistent running is problem valve washers either in the water level control or the flush washer under the press buttons
low pressure will take a longer time to fill but when the level is attained the water will stop flowing in

I have a 2010 Maytag Centennial (MVWC300VW1) washer. In the fill mode using hot or warm water setting, it stops filling after 20 seconds. I have replaced the water inlet valve how ever the problem is still...


Hi Daniel.
I've heard of this problem before. In that case it was because the water pressure was too low and the inlet is set for higher pressure.
If you have a low pressure (gravity) delivery you may want to check if there is an inlet specifically designed for LOW water pressure.
Good luck

My model MZD 2665HEW has started making "half frozen" ice cubes. They have "liquid centers". Any ideas? Thanks in advance


Check the temperature setting for the freezer, since that is a timed operation either the timing is too quick or the temperature is not low enough for it to do a hard freeze.

I am getting the error U3 coming up with a red light and the cycle stops at that point. I am not sure of the dishdrawer model number and have been through a number of the user manuels but cannot find the...


There are a few reasons for U3 to appear.

One that is most common is due to water not filling in time before the wash cycle commences. This can be due to water pressure setting not being consistent with the mains water pressure. Check this by confirming if you are in low water pressure or normal pressure area. The dishwasher should be set at LP or HP accordingly. Refer to the manual for the procedure.

Our whirlpool is a Cabrio the model i.d. is WTW6200SW0. 'LF' keeps flashing on the screen. It's been doing this for a week but we haven't changed any of our clothes washing habits.


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

Not filling with enough water only filling partway


The fill cycle is a set time and not measured. Either your water pressure is low at the dishwasher or the screen on the fill valve is partially blocked keeping the correct amount of water from entering during the fill cycle.

In reference to the LF error code on your Kenmore Washer

When your washer displays error LF , it is due to low water pressure, slow or continuous fill.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 isn't supposed to be filling.
o Contact the water company to verify the pressure being supplied to the house
* Error Codes- LF for long fill or FH for no water detected.
o A plumber may need to be consulted if the pressure is found to be too low.

When washer is in super wash cycle water will not stop causingthe tub to over fill running onto the floor.


It sounds like you are trying to use the largest water level setting. If this is correct you may have a pressure switch problem.

First turn the timer to spin and get all of the water out, that start a washer cycle with the water level set to the small or low setting and see if the washer fills to this level. if it stops at the low level great Now if it continues to fill and does stop you may need a pressure switch or the hose needs to be replaced that runs from the tub to the pressure switch.

Now set at the medium level and try again. does it stop or over fill?

If it over fills you probably need a pressure switch however before you purchase this, make sure the hose is in good condition one pin hole will cause your overfill condition.
