Hot water won't quit running into washer

Hi there,

Within your washing machine there is a 'water inlet value' that controls the flow of water into the unit. This value is controlled by various means, usually an electric solenoid itself controlled by the computer board also built into the machine.

If the shut-off value (the one coming from your house wall where you connect the water hose) is open, and water is still flowing into the machine while the machine if off, then the unit's water inlet valve is seized in the open position.

I've attached a video on how to replace the inlet value.

Hotpoint wd64 washer dryer. Clothes are not being washed after cycles. very evident on whites. Seems to be running through cycles quickly. put onto c cycle. long 95deg wash. takes in water and starts very...


You'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the pressure/water level switch assembly. Inspect the inlet hose coming to the washer for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the pressure/water level switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

No water is coming in the dishwasher. I can hear the water running, but the water is not coming into the dishwasher

If you can hear the water running - but it's not filling, you most likely have a drain problem, which is being stuck open. Usually the motor kicks in and either pumps the water through the wash arms (during wash cycle) or through the drain (during drain cycle) the switch that/or flap could be stuck on the drain and it is pumping it out the drain all the time instead of the wash arms.

If there is water getting into the machine, then the motor, motor control unit, pressure switch, timer control and wiring harness must be tested. If the machine is a top load the motor coupler may replace the MCU of variable speed motors, that must also be tested then.

If cycle is not operating at all, with no water getting through the inlet check lid switch, door latch, inlet hose , inlet valve, membrane switch, Timer board and MCU if present.

Infocus IN26 Projector

Yes the problem is due to over heating.It would be perfectly acceptable to have inlet air to the projector that ranges between 70 ? 76 Farenheit. Most projectors are designed to operate with inlet temperatures well above this value, usually up to about 90F.Set your air-conditioner to the value specified and it should work fine..
