Slow cold water

We moved to a house with hard well water. A short while after moving in, the cold water starting coming out slowly. I called a repairman who said the filter was clogged. It now has happened again, and I don't want to drop another $150. Where is the screen located and can I just clean it?

1.) turn off water valve that supplies cold water to washer.
2.) unscrew the cold water hose-type connector immediately next to the set of 2 water connections in back of unit.
3.) look into the hose you just removed or into the water connector on machine. you will find a metal screen (like a window screen) that is cone-shaped...if none found then remove hose connection at other end of same hose...remove it and then clean it thoroughly and then re-assemble all.

My hot point wma30 washing machine just keeps filling with water when switched of and Dior open

Turn off the water where the water comes out the wall. The hot and cold should each have a shut off your outside water where the hose hooks up. If the valves are frozen try moving them with a little force back and forth to see if you can get them to move. Do not break them. If they won't move then you'll have to find your main line shut off valve to shut off the water to the whole house.

I suggest calling a handy person to help you to shut off the water at the washer and then call a washer repair person to replace the internal washer shut off valve and/or sensor.

Check to make sure that in the process of moving a "hot" wire under the refrigerator did not come loose and now is contacting a metal part of unit.

U have a classic short circuit which accounts for the breaker popping immediately. It is not a short in the compressor because that would have popped the self resetting clixon and not the house breaker.

How rto remove a Stuck rear bearing in housing on 1991 XJ Chrokkee

You don't have a lot of options here, do you have access to a gas plant? heating up the housing will make it expand and you would be able to remove the bearing race, Or if not you may be able to (slowly and carefully) drill into the bearing race, it will be very very hard and slow but if you make a few holes in it you could remove it with a cold chisel.

Just had my Kenmore delivered yesterday and the water trickles in! Initially, when I moved it to warm it did come out normally, but then it also slowed to a trickle. Same if I move it to rinse. I called...

There is a wire screen filter in the water hose where it connects to the water supply. It's probably clogged with sediment from the water supply. It usually happens with the cold water only so try hot water and see if it's better.

Hello Friend, I think your machine will work properly if you add a water line splitter. You would connect to the single cold water tap and on the other end you would have two water hoses . Connect one hose to the cold water inlet of your washer and then connect the other hose to the hot water inlet. You can get these at Home Depot. Happy to help, Tim.

Slow moving dark picture, low color resolution

You probably have a bad main digital video board. I would not suggest a person with prior electronics experience to perform this repair as the set holds extremely high voltages for hours after being turned off.
If you want to try it yourself, you can get the replacement part here
A service manual would come in handy when you are working on something like this. You may want to try searching for one before starting this repair. If you cant find it then let me know and I will guide you with the repair.
