If you have hard water the restriction may be were the hoses attach to the back of machine. This valve has a very fine screen which becomes clogged with small mineral deposits. You can remove and clean or replace, but it will probably happen again. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Testimonial: "There is no water restrictions and the fine screen is clean. This is happening to two of the same model washing machines. When the panel indicator is showing the hot water is to enter the machine there is no power going to the solenoid."

    If you have ano power going to this solenoid then that is your problem. I would want to know if solenoid has gone bad, or something is preventing it froworking. This could take a little labor but may save you a few bucks.Its agood lesson to learn for the next time.

The water fill valve - The water fill valve is a mechanical and electrical part, the coils on the valve need electricity to mechanically open the valve to allow the water to flow into the washer....myth....the washer pumps water into itself...no, it does not. The fill valve opens and the house water pressure pushes the water into the washing machine.
No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting.

If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can test a fill valve live for 120 volts, power to a fill valve coil and no fill = a bad fill valve. You can also test the coils for continuity, no continuity = a bad fill valve. Some Maytag washers have a fuse in the fill valve circuit, if this fuse let go the washer will not fill. Fill valves can also from time to time stick open and not stop filling. If you have to shut off the fill valves to stop the water from filling in the washer, you have a bad fill valve and you will have to replace it.

SOURCE: COLD WATER IS RUNNING SLOW INTO WASHER

Based on your description, the selenoid is bad.
The same device feeds both cold and hot water - so locate your machine model number and year.. and look up the replacement incoming water selenoid part number. You will need to purchase it and replace it.

If your machine is under warranty, call their Customer Service line and report the water flow/noise problem.

Please let us know your findings...

SOURCE: Hi Guys, My machine will only wash in HOT water.

The first thing to check is the water inlet screens. Turn the water off and remove the cold water hose from the washer. There is a screen in the valve that keeps sand and debris out of the valve. You can remove the screen and clean it, then flush the hose in a bucket to get any remaining sand out. Reattach the hose and try it again. If that does not work the problem could be one of several things. From the fill valve to the electronic control. Hope that helps

i am pretty sure its the main board, the easiest way to solve the problem is replace a the main board with a secondhand board, as well as obtaining a bag of spare parts, out a good working machine with faulty seals. You may have faulty seals if the machine is dormant for 3 years. I advise people never use washing powder in their washing machines, just use liquid detergent like Cold Power. the washing powder cakes up in the machine and when harden can be very abrasive and destroy the seals.

Hello. my Lavamat 74500 update does not start the wash cycle. everythig is on, door locks but nothing happens.


sounds like a water fill problem to me, normally at start of cycle door locked, program set, start water solenoid opens and fills machine with water, once water reaches set level heater will come on and wash program will commence,
so if you have a restriction in the water supply/ water tap not turned on correctly, on blockage in water solenoid valve water flow to machine will be restricted causing a long delay before machine starts, things to try
1. make sure hose connection water valve is fully open
2.open soap draw to see / if you can hear water flowing into machine,
3 if its very slow you have a restriction in water supply
could be a twist in water supply hose, causing a restriction
all above is if machine is taking to long to fill with water,
good luck .

Machine wont fill with hot water


problem in hot water tap
hot water solenoid not activating to let water in
to prove either switch the hoses on the taps and press cold water wash
that proves the tap
then press hot wash and that proves the solenoid

I have a LG Punch WF-C5856TC washing machine. Off late, Notice that the water is trickling in rather than flowing. Hence it takes really really long time to wash clothes. Pls advise


The first place to look is the inlet tap in the wall
even you have the tap on full the tap washer inside jams and prevents the full flow of the water
next check out the filter in the hose at the tap or at the washing machine end
next replace the water inlet solenoid
you can check this by changing the hose from the hot water tap onto the cold water tap and pressing the hot water button to fill
solenoids do not know the difference , they just work when the power is applied

Hot water hose pulsates when washer is filling up in warm setting.


It's the pressure from the hot water supply to your machine, if you fill from hot water tap, turn tap down a little to reduce the water flow. Should be OK then

You can use a water hammer arrestor and hook it up to old washing machine hot valve by use of a standard washer hose. This type of aresstor is basically. a shock absorber. You will needtonget pipe adapters to go from hose thread to pipe thread.If you can mount the hammer arressror higher then the washer valve. Hook everything up and turn old hot water valve back on. This shoulg take care of your problem. Thank you.

Hot water entering machine is only a trickle. It


Check the filter trap on the back of the washer where the hot water fill hose connects to the inlet valve, you wil have to shut the hot water valve off first, then remove the hose at the washer and inspect the little filter screen thats in the valve where the hose screws onto the washer, it probably has trapped enough sediment to restrict the flow of hot water into the washer.
Good Luck !

My GWL10 fills really slowly. It starts fine with the hot water, then slows to a trickle when it switches to cold but it doesn't seem to affect it if I change the temperature selection. I normally leave it...


sounds like you have a restriction on the cold water water pipe kinked or a blockage turn off cold water and remove pipe from cold tap then turn tap on and see if water is coming through fast enough if it is then the restriction is in the hose or valve on washing machine if not then the restriction is in the cold water tap

washer may not be detecting water temp but water flow ..if you never use hot water may try hooking cold water to a Y-connector and then hooking to both hot and cold inlet valves ..however it is also possible washer is detecting inlet temps in which case you're out of luck ..i suspect the latter
