Pressure/switch tube needs air in it to tell the machine when to switch off water.if it gets full of water no air pressure remains in the tube so the switch to turn water off at the right level never activates.located outside the drum.

It might have a small stone or something similar in the water soleniod valve or it might just be sticking open somewhat. I'd go ahead and change the cold water soleniod valve because it's not closing itself and shutting off the water flow.

Good Morning,
Sounds like your cold water valve is not opening. If you are handy with a Multimeter check the selector switch that you use to set your cold water for good continuity when you activate it. You should have a good steady reading on the meter. If the meter is fluctuating or has no reading at all the switch is bad. If the switch checks out good, check to see if there is voltage to the cold water valve terminals when the machine is calling for cold water. If there is no voltage, you will have to locate the relay or source that supplies this voltage and replace it. If there is voltage the valve is faulty and needs to be replaced.
I hope I helped you today.

We can only use hot water in our Whirlpool 7.5kg WFE1070BD 1000RPM - how to we shut off the hot water and use cold water? We have tried only cold but the machine will not operate. Please help. Many...


Turn off the water to the machine. Disconnect the cold water hose from the back of the machine and put it in a large bucket. Turn on the water to see if you get full-pressure cold water from the hose. If not, the shut-off valve or other plumbing has a problem.

If you do get cold water from the hose, check the strainer inside the hose fitting on the back of the washer. Clean it if it is clogged. If you still don't get cold water in the machine, you have a problem with either the solenoid valve or the cold water fill contacts in the timer (the timer won't start until the tub is up to the selected level, but if the valve isn't opening or the supply line is otherwise blocked, the machine will never fill). Sometimes in this case you can hear the solenoid valve humming (normally the sound is masked by the running water).

If the problem is a clogged strainer, clean out the hot water strainer also.

I find I get better wash results with warm water (runs both hot and cold for the wash cycle). The soap is more active than in cold water, so I don't need quite so much, and the machine doesn't take as long to finish a cycle since it fills faster. Of course, the cold water has to be running to get the energy savings compared to hot only.

My whirlpool washer fills up with hot / warm water (cold doesn't work) pretty quick for the washing cycle but it takes forever when filling the rinse cycle....help


The amount of water on the rinse is lower becaus it's using cooler water. You stated that the cold water isn't working.
Shut the water supplies off. Take the hoses loose from the hose bibs. There should be screen washers in the end of the hose. These are to catch the sediment that normally flows through the water supply pipes in our homes... Take the washer screens out and clean them with an old toothbrush.
Reinstall and while you're at it clean the hot side too.
Then take the machine end of the hoses off and check that it's all clear there as well.
Re install and run your machine on a cycle and monitor it to see if there is better flow on the cold wash cycle AND the rinse portions of your cycles...
If there is no screen washers in the hose, chances are you'll need to clean the water supply valves in the machine... real fun.. HOPE There's washers in your machine..

The cold water does not shut off. The machine


Need to replace the inlet valve assembly. Dont know what make or model it is, but the part is relativly cheap, and the job is not that hard. Just getting in the cabinet to replace is the hardest part. With many different models, would need to know what model you have to get you in the cabinet.

Cold water continues to run during entire wash cycle


Adrea, sounds like you need a new valve. When it's doing this leaking, unplug the washer. If it's still leaking you know for sure it's the valve. Part number for the model posted is 22002360. Catriver..post back.
