Question about Washing Machines
I just installed the washer machine, and it won't fill with water. The door is closed, power comes on. It runs through a cycle. I unscrewed the hosed from the back fo the washing machine while the water is one, to make sure water is coming through the hose, and it does. The washer is about a year old, never used. Just installing it.
It sounds like the water inlet valve on the inside of the washer is faulty and requires an engineer

Good Afternoon friend, thank you for your post!
I understand that water is not entering your Frigidaire Affinity washer. If the washing machine thinks that the door or lid is not closed, the water will not enter the machine. I recommend that you verify that there are not any visible defects with the door latching mechanism. I also recommend that you visually inspect the water inlet hose to make sure that it is not twisted or restricted. Lastly, please verify that the water supply faucet is completely open and not closed. You may want to avoid running water in other areas of your house while the washer fills. If these troubleshooting steps do not resolve your issue, I recommend that you allow a professional to properly diagnose your washer for you in order to avoid purchasing any unnecessary parts. -NS

If the washer won't fill 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.
