New Whirlpool Cabrio delivered. Water inlet hookups have Red(hot)and Blue(cold) markers in the opening where I connect the water hoses. Should those be removed? No mention of them in the manual. Ed

What does "EFO" stand for? It keeps blinking on my washer


EF0

displays due to washer over-sudsing or due to washer not filling with

Hot

water.

Causes for washer over-sudsing

:

Not using High Efficiency (HE) detergent.

Too much detergent was added.

Using too much 2X or 3X HE detergent

Solutions for over-sudsing

:

Always use HE detergent in an HE washer. It is formulated to be a low-sudsing detergent and made especially for HE washers.

Be sure to use the correct amount of detergent. HE washers require only a small amount of detergent.

Note

: This amount may need to be adjusted for water hardness, load size, and soil level.

If using a 2X or 3X concentrated HE detergent, much less detergent is needed. If suds are seen, reduce the amount used.

If using a water softener, less detergent.

Solutions for Hot water not entering the machine are

:

Make sure both Hot to Cold water hoses are connected properly at the faucets and at the washer.

Fill hoses are usually color coded, blue for cold and red for hot.

Verify that the hot water inlet hose is connected to the hot water faucet.

Verify that the cold water inlet hose is connected to the cold water faucet.

Verify that the hot water inlet hose is connected to the back of the washer into the hot water inlet port.

The inlet port is usually labeled with (H) or (HOT).

Verify that the cold water inlet hose is connected to the back of the washer into the cold water inlet port. This inlet port is usually labeled with (C) or(COLD).
hope this was some help,all the best.

What does "HC" mean?


The HC code indicates that the computer thinks the cold water inlet is getting hot water. The hot water inlet has the cold water coming in. Take off the inlet hoses and double check your water lines. If needed, swap the connections. While you have the hoses off, clear the filters and check for leaks. Check the flow rate and replace the hoses if the water flow is restricted. (Anti-burst hoses can reduce the flow when they detect a leak.)

If the hot water supply is correctly connected to the hot water inlet, then the electronic control board is getting faulty information. Unplug the washer for several minutes. If the code repeats, then the valve may be faulty. Alternative causes of the problem are the hoses, the wiring or the control board.

I hope this helps.

My washer is flashing LF


LF error code indicates that there is a water supply problem.

Are both the hot and cold water faucets turned on? Turn on the water. Check the household faucets to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Completely open both faucets for proper fill.

NOTE: Both hot and cold water must be connected to the washer and turned on. The washer will not properly operate with only one incoming source of water.

Are the water inlet hoses kinked? Straighten the water inlet hoses.

Are the water inlet valve screens on the washer clogged? Turn off the water and remove inlet hoses from the inlet valves in the back of the washer. Inside the inlet valves are screens. Remove any accumulated film or particles from the screens. Reinstall hoses, turn on water, and check for leaks. See the Installation Instructions for details.

10_8_2011_2_15_30_pm.jpg

Is the water pressure less than 10 psi? If the water pressure is too low, the washer may not properly operate. To find out your exact pounds-per-square-inch (psi) value, contact your local water utility company.

Is the drain hose extending more than 8" (20.3 cm) into the drainpipe? The drain hose may be too far inside the drainpipe (standpipe) or laundry tub. Drained water can siphon back into the washer if the drain hose extends too far. Make sure the drain hose does not extend more than 8" (20.3 cm) into the drainpipe or laundry tub. Using the U-shaped drain hose form as described in the Installation Instructions will provide the appropriate length of drain hose in the drainpipe or laundry tub.

Trying to install whirlpool cabrio. hoses seem to be connected right but machine won't fill on start, just hums off and on while sensing. any thoughts on what to do next? thanks


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,

I bought a new washer and just hooked it up to the old water hoses that had been working fine. When i went to turn on the washer it sounded like it would fill but no water every came in.


First you should always replace both flexible hoses .. and replace them every five years.

A few things to check right away.

DId you try all temps? There is a 50/50 chance you have mated the cold hose to the hot inlet and the hot hose to the cold inlet on the washing machine mixing valve. Most machines have a blue and red ring denoting which is which.

Some machines have plugs set inside the inlet valve to prevent debris from getting in until installation.. obviously if these were not removed first no water would make it into the tub.

Turn the water off..dissconnect the hoses.. (have a towel or bucket nearby).. inspect the water inlets for those shipping plugs.

Run some water into the bucket to determine which hose is hot.. and reconnect to the proper inlet (Red for hot and Blue for cold) and try again

Again..If you have not replaced those hoses in the past five years.. get some new ones!

Best of luck!

Water pouring out of cold water connection the hookup is only connected to the hot water because the steam hookup is suppose work for hot water.... So they say??????!!! Is there suppose to be another hose...


YES YOU NEED TO EITHER PURCHASE A SCREW ON PLUG FOR THE COLD SIDE OR HOOK UP A HOSE FROM A COLD WATER VALVE TO THE COLD SIDE OF YOUR INLET WATER VALVE ON THE WASHER (YOU SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN A HOSE WHEN YOU BOUGHT IT, IF NOT YOU CAN PURCHASE ONE AT YOUR LOCAL HARDWARE STORE OR APPLIANCE PARTS STORE , OR SEARS PARTS DIRECT. LET ME KNOW IF THIS WAS HELPFUL!

Whirlpool duet washing machine Hot and cold water are inverted when filling up the machine's bassin: I choose cold water and it fills up with hot water. The rinse cycle is fine though.What could be the...


The Cold inlet for this machine is on the right side.. with a blue indicator ring on it. When I say Right this is looking at the machine from the back.. Left if looking at the machine from the front. in other words the inlet closest to the edge of the machine.

If you are able to pull the machine out from the wall a little.. Start the fill cycle with cold water reach behind the machine and feel the supply hoses. If the hose closest to the edge of the machine is warm.. you simply have the hoses hooked up wrong.

Turn off the water.. swap hoses.. and all should be well..

I doubt the blue colour ring was put on the wrong inlet.. but.. stranger things have happened.

The Hot inlet should be indicated with a red colour ring..

In most installs the hoses will cross over each other.. not unusal at all. Always use new hoses when installing a washer.

Good luck

I have a model WFE1070BD*CD,(5 months old) does this machine use cold water ? Both hot and cold taps were connected at installation but on delicate wash clothes are still very hot .


Check the hose connections on the back.My guess is the lines are crossed. Double check: Is the cold water supply piped to the cold inlet on the washer and the hot water piped to hot inlet? They may be reversed either on the hoses or in the wall.
To check the in-wall piping, feel the the hose bibb marked cold...well, is it? cold I mean. If it is hot, the pipes are crossed in the wall. If it's cold, check that the hose is running to the inlet marked C or cold, or is blue. If it isn't your inlets are crossed. Either way, switch the hoses and you should be good.

I just bought a new washing machine and I am waiting on delivery. Can you tell me if the new machine comes with a drain hose?


The washer should come already equipped with the drain hose and color coded fill hoses (RED stripe for HOT water, BLUE stripe for COLD water. The water tap hookups are also embossed on the back of the washer, to ensure you don't cross the hoses. It will also have shipping bolts installed that stabilze the drum for delivery. If you're having it delivered, make sure the technicians remove the shipping bolts prior to using the washer.

I've just moved house and my machine is not


Hello Friend, I think your machine will work properly if you add a water line splitter. You would connect to the single cold water tap and on the other end you would have two water hoses . Connect one hose to the cold water inlet of your washer and then connect the other hose to the hot water inlet. You can get these at Home Depot. Happy to help, Tim.
