Washer won't fill with water.

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.

Washer will only fill slightly on rinse cycle and not at all on wash cycle

Is the water on? Does the pump run when emptying machine? If yes to both, try running the machine through a spin cycle if you can and let it finish on its own.

Water will not come in to affinity washer

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

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you have to open and close the door numerous times, on your Frigidaire washer, to get it to start. I also see that it is making a big noise before running the cycle. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. If further troubleshooting is needed, please leave me the model number of your washer. Typically, this number can be found on the back of the door or possibly around the edges where the door meets your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Lights come on, door is closed, light load, but door will not lock so machine can begin filling with water. LFT7000ESO MODEL.

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire washer, model# LFT7000ES0, and the door will not lock and begin filling with water. The model number you have provided, comes up as an invalid number. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. If you do need more assistance, I will please ask for the model number of your washer. Typically you should be able to find this located inside your appliance around the edges where the door meets your washer. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

LG WM1814CW washer - doesn't fill with water. Hear a hum when it should be filling with water, but no water and no error codes. I am guessing Valves (F160 and F170). Any thoughts?


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.

After washing -washer slowly fills with water and runs out the door--not every time it is used. First noticed clothes still wet needing to run spin cycle--then washer leaked on floor over week end and...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I would suspect the water inlet control valve may be malfunctioning- not closing (its default no power position).
Quick temporary fix, although tiresome, turn whichever tap, hot or cold, off when washing finished. You've probably already thought of that!
In the meantime I would suggest a service call is required ;-0(

Whirlpool Duet GHW9100LW1 fills up with power off

You have a faulty fill valve

If you want to check which one, try turning off the cold supply only before you go to bed

If the washer has water in it next morning it is the hot valve that has gone faulty if it is dry then it is the cold one

They are easy to change and can be bought from a number of suppliers

Washer Dryer - drum is filled with water even when switched off and door can still open!

Try the valves inside the back where the water hoses connect to the machine they should default to the closed position when water is not required
