Water into a washing machine is controlled by a tube in the side of the bowl up to a pressure switch
as the water level rises in the bowl, pressure in the switch is built up until it overcomes the setting that you have made for a water level on the wash size selection switch
at this point it turns off the inlet solenoid switch and starts the wash cycle
If the water solenoid is burnt out then water will continue to come in and over flow the bowl but it should be washing as well
If the water is not stopping then check for a disconnected hose to the switch or ma hose full of water
failing all that get a washing machine mechanic in

Hot water will not stop flowing. Hot water


Sounds like a bad shutoff solenoid. It operates the valve to let water in and then shut it off. There should be a valve behind the machine where the hose connects to the wall so you don't have to isolate hot water to the entire house.

Put the temp select switch on HOT, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. If there is water flow switch to COLD, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount should be approximately equal or slightly more than flow on HOT. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. Move selector to WARM, start machine. Now there should be twice the flow of water than there was with HOT and COLD temps. I suspect it is the HOT side of inlet water valve that has failed because machines usually rinse with COLD water.

My washer won't turn on,just beeps


It ispossible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errorsdue to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main programcontroller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting fromthe flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit thewater at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then thevoltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to novoltage from the controller. This meansthe controller is a suspect.If thewater flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not theinlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at theinlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVELSENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen levelto give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What ismost important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch mustbe ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor forrinse and wash.Check thislink to replace the inlet valve:http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1408/how-to-replace-the-inlet-valve-on-a-washer-dr.html

Washing machine won't fill


This can be due to a clogging of the inlet valve as the water flow is restricted. You can remove the water line to the washer and check the flow , then check if the inlet valve works after the power is switched on the washer , If there is no flow to the drum then the inlet valve is faulty provided there is power to the valve or the main controller is faulty

I get an F H code. I bought a new inlet value which fixed the problem for about two weeks. I then installed the old one wich lasted another 2 weeks. How can I find and fix the correct problem. Maytag ...


Hello,

As i suppose you know by replacing the water inlet valve that the F-H error code means now water was detected entering the washer. having replaced the water valve,one thing you should check,espically if using"aqua flow flood stop" braided steel inlet hoses from the house water supply,is if water is flowing through the inlet hoses into the washer, if your using that type of hose from the faucet they have a problem in them and the internal flood stop device inside the hose fails and even though the water faucets are on no water is getting into the washing machine. Also or even if using those type hoses disconnect them from washer and check for water flow through them when not connected to washer. If water flow is good into washer replace this part called the flow meter part # W10110225 it measures and tells the control that water is coming into the washer. It the flow meter can of course be purchased where you got the water inlet valve.

Good luck,
Gene

Keep getting fh code, replaced pressure switch, replaced flowmeter, noticed that the hot water would not shut off, even put on cold water only and hot water would still run. Machine is constantly sending...


the code means water inlet problem
Have the water flow meter checked or replaced. If the internal wheel sticks inside the meter, the CCU will think no water is entering the washer and give you this error code.
Do you notice an above normal amount of water in the washer when you notice the error code? This is a good indication the flow meter is faulty. You can obtain the part from Sears and install it yourself. Very easy fix.
The flow meter has a reed switch on the side of it.
Sometimes this switch fails and doesn't respond to the magnetic wheel inside the flow switch. It is suppose to provide a pulse action as the wheel turns. The CCU interprets these pulses to determine flow rate. Just because the wheel inside the meter turns, does not necessarily mean the reed switch is functioning. Exactly when do you see the hf error. At the exact moment you see the error is the washer's water level higher than normal?

A GOOD TIP IS: blow air back into drum and into the pressure switch. It will usually work after that!

Water keeps coming in past full


Your water inlet valve is not closing causing your water to over flow. Also check your flow switch to make sure that it is still good also. The inlet valve and flow can be found behind the knobs up top. If you are satisfied please rate

Water still trickles in after the entire wash cycle is completed


Check the flow meter first. The flow meter has a reed switch on the side of it. Sometimes this switch fails and doesn't respond to the magnetic wheel inside the flow switch. It is suppose to provide a pulse action as the wheel turns. The CCU interprets these pulses to determine flow rate. Just because the wheel inside the meter turns, does not necessarily mean the reed switch is functioning.
