It keeps leaking cold water inside when not in use


Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Cold water leaks into tub when machine is off


Try to identify roughly the area the leak is coming from. This will eleminate some of the following

Hose Connections
Check the rubber washers or replace if the hoses are leaking at the WATER INLET valve

Door Seal
This is a common place for leaks. Carefully check by partially pulling seal inside out and check for punctures, pens, pencils... Additionaly if the door is not closing properly it may need a door adjustment. This can easily be done by loosening the hinge bolts on the front panel, adjusting and retighten. The seal is also known to get lightly snagged by zippers or rub by heavy items when close are being removed. This tends to cause the seal to get damaged at the six o'clock position. This is sometimes hardly noticeable but if it is leaking from the bottom of the door replace door seal.

Water Inlet Valve
If the hose connections are good to the water inlet valve check that water is not leaking from the valve itself it is replace inlet water valve

Drain Pump
Check the drain pump housing and all hose connections. The drain pump is behind the lower panel, behind the back panel, and sometimes removal of the front panel. Hoses can be tightened. If hoses or pump housing is leaking replace pump .

Outer Drum
The outer drum is 2 halves bolted together some washers have a seal between others do not. If the washer is leaking between the seems disassembly of the washer will be necessary. The top panel, console, front panel, door seal, struts. 9696d86e-1b8b-4b2e-af2c-6f3a3ae921dc.jpg

Fixed leaking faucet, now handles leak at the base & the water pressure is low


No, air can't get trapped in there. I don't think you did anything wrong. It sounds like the valve or internal parts are worn more than new washers take up for. Tightening down the valve just reduced travel for valve to open fully. Can't think of a fix; where's that joe da plumber?

Can u run hotpoint wmtl79-d/dg washing machine just on cold water


yes it can be used only on cold water
if what your asking is that if you only have one hose to connect to it that cant be done the water valve where the hoses attach to must be capped off on the hot side or water will leak out of it
so yes only cold be used but must cap off hot side inlet at machine

Hi cold water is very slow to fill it stops filling and starts beeping when there is not enough water in it i have to keep reseting machine the hot water fills alot quicker so i have to do a warm wash...


I assume this is a clothing washer, not a Kitchen Range.
It is likely one of two possible problems. Either there is some debris (rust, minerals etc) partially blocking the inlet valve, or the inlet valve is malfunctioning and not opening correctly.

Where the cold water hose attaches to the machine is the inlet valve. This will have a small wire basket filter in it. You should turn off the cold water at the wall side of the hose. (Turn off both to be safe. Disconnect the cold hose from machine. Expect to see some residual water from hose, and possibly a seepage continuing as the shut off faucets are not usually great. You'll probably need some channel lock pliers to loosen the connection. Just unscrews.
When you remove the hose from the valve, see if any blockage at the wire filter. If it looks fairly clear, then the valve itself is probably faulty and needs replacement. If lot of crud in there, pick and clean it out as best you can. Do not try to remove or open up the wire filter or you will have trouble inlet valve. Replace hose making sure to include the rubber washer, and tighen with the pliers.
Good luck.

Often the hot and cold valves are one unit. and replaced together.

Fisher & Paykel GWL11 Leaking water


If you cannot see the water leaking from the inlet valves, check the seal just above the water pump located directly under the drum. I am in the midst of awaiting parts to fix this very thing on my FP GWL11. This leak is dripping water directly onto the motor, causing it to trip the circuit breaker during drain/spin cycles.

Note... I have also had to have the inlet valve assembly replaced as well as it was not opening to allow cold water to mix with the hot.

Hope this helps.

Cold water doesn't work in my washer


There's no cold water Some washing machines allow cold water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.

If you're sure the machine is not working the way it used to--or should--check the following.

  • Is the cold water turned on? If not, turn it on.

  • Is the washer getting hot water but no cold water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct.

  • Is there cold water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you need to replace the valve.
