Check the solenoids at the water inlet valve. They can be checked using a multimeter or ohm meter for continuity. If either solenoid has no continuity, then the water inlet valve will need to be replaced. See the attached photo and best wishes.

Why does it take my washer so long to complete a cycle

If you're filling from cold then the water has to heat up if you select a hot wash. If your water preasure is very low then it could take a long time to fill every time.

Why my uberhaus dual flush toilet does not flush properly

Perhaps it is taking a long time to fill the cistern, take top off and see if it's filling after flushing, if it's slow and pressure is ok it is likely to need a new diaphragm in the filling valve.

After commencing a programme my Hotpoint BF71 dishwasher takes in water but overfills, filling the whole of the tub nearly to door level. The waste pump starts for a short burst and then more water comes...

Check for a float switch that senses the water level. It may have two level sense of filled and overfill the latter would trigger the waste pump to avoid a flood. If the filled switch has failed, that could cause the problem. The waste pump MAY also be triggered on the basis of the filling taking too much time before the filled switch actuates... if it has failed, the time would be exceeded.

The water tank only on our Caraoma toilet only fills a drip at a time. It takes forever to fill...

There is probably some trash in the screen in the fill valve. You can try taking the valve apart and cleaning the internals, or you could just install a new fill valve. The part costs less than $10.

Hi i waqnt to know that in quick washing select...

The most likely reason is the amount of time needed to fill with water.. Low water pressure in your pipes can make a difference to time needed to fill..Multiply this extra time by the number of fills.. Also a blocked or faulty inlet valve can affect fill time..I hope this helps....Good luck....Nomess
