Hot water barely comes out,


If you switched the feed hoses over and the problem reversed itself, cold has gone from fast to slow useing the hot water pipe and hot from slow to fast useing the cold water pipe then this would indicate a fault in the water supply from the hot pipe. What sort of pressure is coming from the hot pipe when not connected to the machine but filling in to a bucket? Are there any shut off valves before the pipe that supplies the hot water? Are they fully turned on? Any kinks in the feed pipe for the hot water? Has the hot water feed pipe collapsed internally? Change the pipe to check this and not just at the machine side.

Getting f20 error code, how to check flow meter operation


Check for stuck socks or something just under the door seal at the bottom of the drum. Check filter for blockage and all outlet pipes. Check the pressure switch hose for any holes as it may have rubbed on the drum and created a small hole in it. Make sure flow meter is level and not at any angle.

Kenmore water keep running will not wash


On many washing machines, there is a water level setting switch. This allow you to adjust the level in the machine to converse water. This switch works on air pressure. There is a small hose inside the outer drum at the bottom of the washer. It is connected to the pressure switch (level setting switch). As the washer fills, the weight of the water compresses the air in the hose until the pressure switch activates. There are two possible failure scenarios; they are both fairly easy to repair. First, the hose could be blocked at the drum entry point by lint or debris. This is a somewhat common occurrence. To check this, unplug the washer. Remove the rear cover from the control panel to access the rear of the switches. Find the rubber hose attached to the level switch and remove it. Blow through the hose to clear it. Reattach the hose and retest the machine. If that doesn't work, you may need to replace the water level switch, It is easily remove and replaced once you have accessed the rear of the unit. You can calls Sears service with the model and serial number of the machine and get replacement parts sent directly to your home.

Hot water is not very hot incoming, I know it worked on old washer, and then when rinse cylce is filling, it does fill up to the cycle chosen, it only puts a little bit of water in teh tank, then I have to...


It sounds like you may have sediment in your water which has clogged the water inlet valve which has a screen filter. Check the hose where it connects to the water supply and where it connects to the washer. If the valve isn't working right you can swap the hot and cold water and see if it's the valve causing the problem.

The pressure switch tube may be stopped up not letting the water level go to the selected level. It's connected to the switch by the tube which runs down into the drum between the outside and inside drum. You may can blow on it to see if it's working and unclog it.

Retains water (after a delay) in the drum after a wash cycle. Immediately after the wash cycle there is no water in the drum, however after several hours the drum has water in it?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill! To find out which it is in the case of hot and cold fill turn the cold tap/faucet off overnight and see if water has come in or not. that will tell you. Also to check that it is just a physical problem and not a control board problem switch the machine off at the supply. If it still does it (from whichever supply) it is that valve which is not closing correctly ;-0
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Water continues to fill into the washer drum on the spin cycle.


Hi

You could have a stuck solenoid valve
Try this: Set the water temp on cold. Turn on only the hot water.
Does hot water try and fill the drum?
If so then there is a problem with the hot solenoid.

Next set the water on hot. Turn on only the cold water. Does cold water try and fill the drum ?
If so then there is a problem with the cold solenoid.

Washer does not fill with water but motor continues to turns drum


Yes the drum will always spin when filling it is called stirring, however, you will find you need to replace the (I assume) cold inlet valve, or you could put the cold hose on the hot valve and do a hot wash, this means it would fill with cold water, however some machines do have a sensor for sensing water temp, if this is so the machine will beep, and it may take some time to fill. :)

Washing Machine Rinse and Spin lights are on


its the problem of drum getting blocked by any clothes getting tucked up.also try to move the drum manually with the machine off.if it makes any noise its the faulty motor.or drum has lost its alignment.it needs to be reseated properly in that case. -------------- The water fill valve - The water fill valve is a mechanical and electrical part, the coils on the valve need electricity to mechanically open the valve to allow the water to flow into the washer....myth....the washer pumps water into itself...no, it does not. The fill valve opens and the house water pressure pushes the water into the washing machine.
No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can test a fill valve live for 120 volts, power to a fill valve coil and no fill = a bad fill valve. You can also test the coils for continuity, no continuity = a bad fill valve. Some Maytag washers have a fuse in the fill valve circuit, if this fuse let go the washer will not fill. Fill valves can also from time to time stick open and not stop filling. If you have to shut off the fill valves to stop the water from filling in the washer, you have a bad fill valve and you will have to replace it.

Drum is filling with water after each wash


There is only 2 possibilities for the drum to fill with water after it has finished.
Firstly, if the empty pipe is connected to the sink outlet pipe, the water can syphon back into the washer if the pipe is too low, thereby slowly filling the washer when not in use.
Solution is to lift the outlet pipe higher.than the bottom of the sink.
The other reason is the inlet valve is not shutting off properly.
To prove if this is the case, turn the water off at the valve, if it is hot and cold fill, then turn the hot off only, and wait and see if water comes in over a period of time, if it does not then you need to replace the hot valve.
If water stills comes in with hot turned off, then you need to replace the cold valve.
If cold fill only , turn off cold and wait to see if any water comes in, if it does not, then replace cold valve.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
