SOURCE: water will not fill my washing machine and the add garment light is always on

Your water inlet valve (solenoid) is bad and needs replacing. There may be two; one for hot and cold. Either buy both and replace or mess around by trial and error to find the one! Get Both!

Have tryed all suggestions

Chances are that you have a bad door switch assembly, which is on the right-hand side of the door opening behind the panel (Looks like two dark holes). Or secondly a bad striker (a two finger-like looking part on the door, which pushes and activates the switch when you close the door. Make sure they are not broken. Over time the switch will go bad. These are the causes of most won't start problems. Someone that has some electrical knowledge would have to meter the switch to verify this is the problem on your washer to be 100% certain. The switch runs about $100. The striker plate runs about $15. Please let me know if this helps.

Prime light came on.did all cleaning..air drying..etc. refilled.plugged in machine. Not ready light came on and cold water started immediately coming out and won't stop till add water light comes on

Sounds like your refill float that stops the water fill process when its full is stuck from most likely setting to dry upside down jar and jolt the machine heave up and down a few times plug it in try it do this until it stops on its own or you may have to take it apart also make sure the water line is turned back on if this is hooked up to operate on its own water supply.

The light below the green or orange button with 3 lines down is on what does this mean, I also need a manual which didn't come with my machine

Question posted under water heaters, but no brand or model number is given.
Question asks for product manual. And asks for interpretation of error code.

1) Look on side of water heater for machine information, and then add a comment and include all possible detail for best result, including brand and model number, and approximate age of machine, and whether machine is gas or electric powered.
Adding a comment with specific information will tell expert what answer to give, or expert might not be expert in your product and will suggest that new question be re-posted at fixya for another expert.

2) To find a product manual on your own, Google search model number of machine, and add the specific words to search parameter: instruction .pdf
For example search for: Rheem Pro40NE2 instruction .pdf

Followup question for bansheracer re: old Livia 90

Do you have any lights on?
Try removing the water tank's ground wire. Ground it to the frame at one of the grounding locations and see if the machine will respond. If it does then the water does not have enough mineral for the computer to see. Add some tap water.

Water not coming into my HE5 washer

Check that there is water coming from water supply, if not lines can be clogged or frozen.

If water is coming to the machine, but not entering into the drum, then it is a faulty inlet valve, or a faulty control, have parts tested and replaced.

Emerson IM90 Portale Ice Maker

My friend bought this item last week at Target for the $99 sale price. The reviews were all horrible about the red light (add water) indicator going on after the first or several first ice cube runs and never going out. About 40 out of 60 reviewers had this problem. We experienced it right after the first run when the ice cube full light went on. We emptied it and the add water red light was on. I looked all over the web for a solution and only found one that suggested tilting the unit backwards for 45 degrees and that would magically reset the light. It did not after several angles, light taps and basic shaking. Since there was no alternative and everyone who returned it also got the exact same problem with the new replaced model - we decided to open it up and investigate.
The electronics diagram is on the back of the machine and tell you where the water indicator is. We took it out (an inch long black tube along the water pump and backflow valve) and dried it completely. The cycle still had the red light. We submerged it completely in water and the red light still went on saying that the unit needs water. We determined that this is the bad part and the water indicator is faulty. We cut it out and joined the two wires. IT ALL WORKS NOW FLAWLESSLY. You only have to shut the unit off when you leave since it will ocntinue to run if out of water. If you're looking for a quick mechanical fix and have a unit that works when you need it and you are around - this isthe fix.
