Have you tried cleaning the screens where the hoses connect? sometimes hard water can clog them up and as a result will not get hot water or it could be your pump.

Hi there, I recently bought a second hand Fisher & Paykel Pride 5.5 washing machine and we only have a cold water tap so I have attached the cold water tap and put a copper cap I got from a hardware...


HI - THE WASHER WILL BE OK WITH COLD WASH ONLY, NOTE WHEN YOU TURN THE MACHINE ON THE WATER SECTION WOULD HAVE THREE LEDS - COLD ON BOTTOM - WARM - MID & HOT - TOP MOST.

THE OTHER THING IS WHEN THE MACHINE STOPS THERE SHOULD BE SOME BEEPING FROM THE MACHINE - NOTE THEM IN ORDER FROM LEFT TO RIGHT WHICH HAS THE ONLY RED LED, WHERE THERES A LIGHT PUT 1 TYO REPRESENT IT - NO LIGHT PUT A 0, POST IT & I WILL SEE WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU.

FYI - THE LED COLOURS - ARE GGGGGOOR WHEN ON...

We have a Maytag A612 washer. Today it wouldn't fill all the way with cold water (for a cold water load). If I hit the Warm or Hot button, it resumes filling with Hot water, but I don't want Hot so I hit...


Turn off the cold water faucet.
Remove the water hose from the machine and the faucet.
Clean out the filter screen in the washer water valve.
Look in the hose for a secondary screen and clean it also if one if there.
Not all hoses have screens.
All water valves do have screens.

Baumatic BK6EL washing machine will not fill with water, it only lets a cup full in, shuts the water off and starts washing. Any ideas? Thanks, Mandy


One of the most common problems encountered with washing machines that need repairs, including Baumatic machines, is no water coming into the machine or the soap not being taken from the soap dispenser box. There are two main reasons why this could happen, 1. because the water has been turned off inadvertently from somewhere, or 2. because the water inlet valve as become faulty or blocked.
If your appliance is not taking in water the first thing you need to know is if the problem is with the hot or cold supply, to find out you can put your appliance onto a white wash cycle and start the machine this should bring hot water into the machine and you will know within a few minutes if the hot water supply is working or not, and to find out if the cold supply is working or not select stop/reset and then select the drain or spin cycle and this will empty the machine of any water, now select the rinse cycle and this should bring cold water into the machine and you will know within a few minutes if the cold water supply is working or not, once you are sure of the results select stop/reset and then select drain or spin again to empty any water that may have entered the appliance.
At this stage you should know whether the hot or cold supply is at fault, the next thing you need to check is that the water as not been turned off inadvertently, check both the stop **** and the washing machine connector valve/s, to see if you can tell if it as been turned off or not, if you think it as, turn it back on and do the hot and cold cycle test above for the cycle that failed, if the water is still not coming into the appliance you know need to turn the water off from the washing machine inlet valve/s one at a time and slowly disconnect the the inlet pipe/s from the washing machine side and point the washing machine inlet pipe it into a bucket and then turn the water back on, you should be checking to see that the water is on and also that the water pressure is OK.
There is a good chance your appliance could be working OK now, but If the test above shows the water is on and the pressure is OK but the washing machine is still not taking in water, you will need to have t the water inlet valve and or the water pressure switch and water pressure chamber tested, the diagnosis procedure covered here will work for Baumatic washing machines that need repairs, it will also work for most other makes.hope this helps

Maytag Performa wont fill hot water


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.

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.

Cold water will not pump into washer but hot water does.


HI. i would check the water valve inlet screens and make sure that the wall outlet faucets are fully open. if the screens and the wall faucets are OK, this will confirm a water valve issue. you will need to replace the water valve assembly in this case.

Mixed Water Fill Causes Issues with Water Pressure


You will have to be specific about what problem the pump is having. It seems to pump ok for everything else. Could the hot solenoid be shorting and sending electricity down the water to bother the pump? Solenoids are not real expensive, try a new one.
