Cannot get cold water to come into the washer

I have a whirlpool washer and the cold water will only drip into the washer. I can only get very hot water to come out. When I put it on warm or cold, it buzzes, but only drips cold water. Any suggestions on what I can try?

Turn off the water and reverse the hot and cold water connections going into the faucet, then turn the water back on. If only cold water comes out of the unit when on hot temperature then you need to order a water valve solenoid which I suspect is the problem or wash only in cold water. They are replaced by removing the back washer panel a couple of bolts, one connector, and two hose clamps. Remember to restore the hot and cold water connections.

The water valve is working. It only does as told. Faulty water temp switch or yank out the small board and clean the terminals then re insert it and see if maybe corrosion was all that it was. That is what I would try if it was mine.

Why is the hot water pipe dripping after tighening up.


First the is a hot and cold water pipe. To those are connected hot and cold water outlet bib valves to which are connected, respectively, hot and cold water hoses going to (or you could say, coming from) their respective connections to the washer. Correct this if I am wrong but, it appears you might be talking about those hose connections to the water spigots but calling them pipes, not hoses. If that is true, you contecture is correct: it is most typically a worn out hose washer or o-ring and replacing that item should correct any dripping. By sure the part is characterized for hot water.

You can try a few differnt things, staining is usually caused by not hot enough water to disolve or hard water issues. A Washer cleaning use one gallon white vingar fill up washer with hot HOT water let sit over night than run washer next day on HOT hot. Second try washing in warm to hot water dluting softner more breaks down better. Also dluting the softner more in the cup will help washing in cold causes alot of these issues, Make sure water heater turned up hot enough, make sure washer has hot water fill?

Water is dripping into the machine when it is off.


Either the hot or cold water valve is not shutting off completely. It will need to be replaced.

Dripping water from outlet in door that fills the washer


djam919,

Your water valve may be leaking. Can you tell if the water dripping is hot or cold?
Some washing machines have one dual valve for hot and cold water, and some will have separate valves. You must remove the top of your unit to find out if your have one or two valves.
To remove the top of the machine you need to remove 3 screws on the back of the unit at the very top, then the top should slide towards the back of the machine ( with a litle push ), now lift the top off the unit.

To determine what valve to replace first you must look on the back of you washer and locate the hot and cold connections, then shut off the one of the water lines coming to your machine at the wall valve, if it continue leaking then you can tell that the opposite valve is the problem. ( wait for about 10 min to make sure that the water leaking isn't just left over water in the hose).

Good Luck

Cold water drips in instead of fills. Hot water


Inlet screen in the hot water hose is clogged (check at both ends) or the solenoid valve has failed.
