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?

Re: slow cold water

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.

Water for intial fill works fine . when it goes to rinse cycle the water just dribbles in making wash time go on for ever ! whats the solution?

when you start the washer set it just on cold and see if it fills slowly,when the washer goes to rinse it just uses cold water,you could have a problem with the washer or in the house,when you run it on just cold and if it dribbles in,stop it shut down the water going to the washer,remove the cold water hose from the back of the washer,stick it in the sink or inside the washer and turn it on,if it comes out strong then you have a bad water valve on the washer,if it comes out slowly you have a bad water valve in the house and it's not the washer.hope this helps

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.

Water comes out wash cycle good but slow at rinse cycle

do you mean filling the washer up or draining it out?i think you mean filling it up,on washers just the cold water is used to fill the washer on the rinse cycle,you can shut the water down and remove the cold water line and see if you can clean out the screen in the washer water valve,also while you have the hose off,stick it in the washer and open the valve to see how the pressure is,if it's coming out strong then the problem is in the washer and you should change the washer water valve,if it's coming out slowly then you have a problwm with the house water valve and need to change that out.let me know what you find

Hello.Maybe the drain is sounds like your machine is working ok to me,if you can hang the hose over the edge of a laundry tub & make sure the plug is out,see if the water drains away,otherwise it sounds like a plumbing problem not the started only after you moved houses so more likely the plumbing.hope i helped.

MAchine fills slowly. Have cleaned the screens.

Check the solenoid. You can swap the hot and cold water hoses and set the wash for hot but cold will come out. Then you can see if the flow is better. If it is the cold valve isn't opening all the way.

I've just moved house and my machine is not

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.
