SOURCE: washing machine not filling

Check the screens at the point where your water hoses connect to the washer. These often get clogged with calcium. A simple vinegar soak or cleaning with a brush will often solve this problem

1. Turn off the water supply at the valve
2 Place a towel or bucket behind the washing machine to catch remaining water coming from the removed hose
3. See if the screen (often cone shaped) is inside the washer side or the hose itself.

Remove the screen, clean it, and replace.

I hope this works.

Washing machine doesn't stop after time allocated


Possible suspect of the inlet flow, the pressure sensor or the program controller.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

How to repair or fix a Dishwasher if it doesn't wash well


A common cause of poor washing results is improper loading—dishes that block or impede the spray arm(s) or prevent the soap dispenser from opening. On the other hand, if your dishwasher has chronic problems with good washing, the problem may not be your dishwasher. A good first step is vary the amount of dishwasher detergent you're using and try switching brands.

Other possibilities: Your home’s water pressure may be too low, your water may be too hard, or the water temperature may not be hot enough.
In order for your dishwasher to fill to the appropriate level, water pressure should be from 20–120 pounds per square inch. If you suspect that your water pressure may be low, turn off all faucets or other users of water (such as washing machines and sprinklers) and then put a half-gallon jug under the kitchen faucet. Turn on the hot water full-blast. If the jug doesn’t fill within 14 seconds, your water pressure may be too low for proper dishwasher operation. Call your city water utility to discuss your options, or avoid drawing water elsewhere in the house or yard during dishwasher cycles.
The right amount of detergent to use depends on how large your load of dishes is and how hard your water is. Hardness is measured in grains of minerals—the more grains per gallon you have, the more detergent you’ll need. If your water has 12 grains or more of hardness, fill both dishwasher soap cups completely with detergent. If that doesn’t work, consider installing a water softener.
To check water temperature, hold a meat thermometer under the hot water faucet for two minutes; if it doesn’t register a minimum of 140 degrees F., turn up the temperature dial on your hot water heater. (However, if you have a newer dishwasher that heats the water internally, it isn’t necessary to turn up your hot water heater.)
If your dishwasher has worked fine in the past but suddenly your dishes aren’t clean after the dishwasher completes all cycles, listen to the spray arm(s) spinning inside during the wash cycle. If spinning poorly, wait for the machine to cool down, remove the spray arm(s) by unscrewing the hubcap(s), lifting the arm(s) off, and then cleaning out the spray holes in the spray arm(s) with a stiff piece of wire.

Check the pressure switch and hose. Pressure switch is what turns the pump on and off. Trouble is usually in the hose so check it first. Look for the hose to be unattached or clogged.

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.

My maytag home top loading washing machine over fills with water, ie. the switch to stop filling and start washing doesn't go off. I can drain it by setting it to spin.


top loading machines comes with a pressire switch to determine the water level.IT will fill with water till the switch is triggered to stop filling and continue with the next task of washing. there would be a rubber hose connected from the wash bucket to the pressure switch. Check for broken,leaking,bitten by rats hose or probably the switch it self is faulty, which is rather rare.

What does f-05 on the screen mean


It means it's not draining correctly. You'll have to open it up to see if the drain hose is blocked, or just call a professional F05 on an Indesit washing machine means "Pressure switch jammed on trip"

As is often the case, knowing the error code is one thing, but findng the cause is another because error codes often have several possible causes. The wording of the error code explanation suggests the pressure switch clicked on to register a water level, but when the water was drained away it remained on instead of turning off. I would guess there could be a blockage in the pressure system, or the pressure switch could be faulty. Also, if the water didn't drain properly it would cause the pressure switch to stay on too. Finally, the Indesit washing machines PCB's can give erroneous errors where the fault turns out to be with the pcb itself. This makes things very difficult if you don't have access to replacement PCB's to try.

Basically, I would keep an eye on the washing machine and try it again. If it reoccurrs then clearly it needs sorting, but if it doesn't it might have just been one of those things.

The water doesn,t automatically turn off after the machine is full or after rinsing


Hmmm... sounds like it could be the water level sensor. If it were the water input valve itself, the water would be running ALL the time.
It is usually a water pressure sensor switch that is underneath the machine that likely has a plastic hose attached to the bottom of the tub. When the water level gets to the appropriate level, the water pressure opens the switch and that shuts off the water inlet valve.
Here is a link that explains it quite well.
Hope this helps... floods are a pain.

Hotpoint WT761 washing machine - Error code F-10 The machine is filling with water, then signalling F-10, then pumping the water out. So the fill solenoid and the pump are working OK. If I set the machine...


Thats strange, F10 means no cold fill.
Ok back to basics, you can check the pressure switch by taking off the tube and gently blowing into it and I mean gently, you should hear a click if its ok - make sure the other end is'nt blocked, blow it out with a cycle pump near the drum end
