SOURCE: cold water stopped coming into machine. cleaned

Check the solenoids at the water inlet valve. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Test for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need to be replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Hot water will not run into top loading machine.


Is this a new install? Has it worked before and now it doesn't? Did you let it run long enough to confirm that there was ample opportunity for the hot water from your heater to make its way into the machine? If you turn off the hot tap and the only solenoid that is opening is the cold, then there is a problem with the machine.

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.

Will not fill with hot or cold water and is connected


You need good water pressure on hot for these machines to work, gravity fed systems may not be enough. I had to attach a pump to mine to improve the hot water pressure (UK)
Switch over the inlet pipes ie hot to cold and cold to hot and try filling the machine when switched to fill with hot water, (machine will fill will cold). proving the valve is opening and it is a pressure issue on you hot water.

The machine will only fill with hot water. I have switched the feed lines and even turned off the cold water and gotten the same result. Is this a bad solenoid?


Your COLD inlet valve is faulty. By swapping the hoses you have cold water coming in via the hot inlet valve. However, most machines will only rinse with cold water, but your machine thinks the water is hot. So...it won't rinse! Replace the cold valve or change the wires from the cold to the hot valve...Some electronic machines can be damaged by doing this. Non electronic machines could be ok...Good luck....Nomess

Cold water stopped coming into machine. cleaned the screen and still would not work. switched hot and cold hoses and set temp. on hot. worked for one load, but now the water will only stay on for about 10...

No water light on new delonghi magnifica


I had the same problem.
As the machine is brand new, try washing the infuser under the hot water tap and then dry it. I then made a 2 cup long coffee and the red no water light stayed off.

Hot water solenoid not energising i.e. no hot fill.


check the water setting.

it could be set to cold and not warm or hot that is why it is not energizing the hot water solenoid.

tnx 4 using fixya.

drcool

check also temperature setting of water. if it is set to cold, then hot water will not be energized. or it could be the defective part.

tnx again,

Hot washes won't start


check the hot water supply is switched on- it sounds like the valve is energising but no water is gettin through !! also check for hot water blockages. easy test is to reverse the water pipes at the back of the machine to test. tony.
