It looks like a faulty or blocked water inlet valve. Is there a service manual for it so I can find a spare part?

Find the plate that has a model and serial number/ go online for local supplier. Solenoids are usually no very expensive to just swap out instead of trying to fix.

WHIRLPOOL DISHWASER MOD ADG8100 fault f6 is on what is that

There is a problem with intake water.
Could be:
- water tap closed
- water inlet hose blocked
- faulty water inlet valve
- faulty flow meter
Opening the water tap within the first 30sec. of the program cycle rasets the failure F6. After another 30sec. water inlet valve will close due to safety reasons.

I have candy washing machine typ goy 105,after two minutes she stop working and red light start to blink 5 times

Please check your water flow at the inlet, if there is no flow then the inlet is blocked, the inlet valve is faulty or the water level sensor is faulty if the water overfills.It can also be related to a faulty controller board.
check this link for tips : Inlet valve.

Water keeps coming into the machine, looking for electric valves.

The solenoid valve is under the machine. It will be a block of metal installed with fittings into the water pipe and it has a plastic cylinder attached to it. The cylinder will have two wire terminals on the end opposite the valve block and is typically about 3/4" dia. x 1 1/2" long.

Intake drain light is on and dishwasher won't start

Hi there - possible the inlet valve is blocked or faulty - have a look at the valve if its blocked first if not then the inlet valve is faulty... the problem is the G638 has 2 inlets - one is the the waterproof syatem with a large grey contration fitted to the tap, the other is located beneath the machine , a bit hard to get at...

will require a disconnection of services empty water from machine - tilt on the back - 4 screws on the bottom tray - here you will find the valve - should be located on the frontish right side..

Do be careful if you pursue the latter as its a delicate with little space to work with and costly if you break something else in the process...

Have a think about this first...Yes? then do remeber to disconnect the power.....

happy weekend

Water no going in


You will need to pull out the appliance and check the hoses at the back. Ensure that inlet hose is not kinked or blocked, and ensure that there is enough pressure from the faucet connected to the dishwasher.

Once you are sure that the water source is OK, you will need to test water inlet valve and water level sensor.

Inlet valve is tested reading Ohms at valve solenoid contacts. The valve is generally faulty if it does not open when energized. dual valves can also be tested swapping contacts between the two inlet valves' solenoids.

If the inlet valve is OK, then the water level and overfill devices must be tested, as this can prevent the inlet valve from opening.
The water level switch is often a floater switch. The machine can also use a pressure switch and an overvill device that fills a container. Floater is tested ensuring that the floater is not stuck or sinking, and verifying that the switch connected to the arm is opening and closing. Other way to test the float switch is by jumping it.

Some of the tests described is suitable for a technician or for an experienced DIYer. Always disconnect power before performing any maintainance.

If you need to contact a technician, call the number listed on the use and care manual or use the Fixya Products Repair & Service Directory.

My washer only get a little water and my clothes dont get clean

could be blocked inlet hose/filter/connection. If water flow is ok to inlet valve on rear of machine, it's probably a faulty inlet valve. Replace valve with new unit......Good luck....Nomess

When starting a new cycle no water fills in. It just makes a buzzing sound

An inlet valve can buzz normally...However, if water is not flowing it probably means that the inlet valve is faulty..Make sure that the filters on the inlet valve are not blocked..If they are clear it's probably a faulty valve... Good Luck....Nomess
