HI, I would start by inspecting the actual inlet water valve assembly for damage.

The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it at the back of the washer. Start by turning off the water supply at the valves on the wall. Disconnect both hoses from the back of the washer. Place the hoses into a bucket and turn them on to confirm that you are getting good water pressure and to clear out any debris from the line.

Inspect the filter screens on both the hoses and the inlet valve for debris build up. If you find any debris, clean it out. Use caution to avoid damaging the filter screens because the screens in the valve are not replaceable.

If debris was not present then proceed to the next step of testing the solenoids. Access to the valve may be easiest by opening the top or the back of the washer, depending upon make and model.

There are two wires connected to each solenoid on the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip-on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals ( Be sure to not pull the wires). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

Use a continuity tester or multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. A reading of infinity indicates a bad solenoid that must be replaced. Different brands and models will have various measurements, but the valve should show some resistance if it is functioning properly. Test the second one in the same way as the first.

If the solenoid is working properly, but water leaks through the valve even when the washer is off, then the valve itself is the problem. Debris may be preventing the valve from closing. If the valve cannot be cleaned, it will have to be replaced. The valve can also fail mechanically. So even if it passes the electrical test, it may still require replacement. If you have ruled out all other possibilities, go ahead and replace the valve.

NOTE-(If The inlet is functional with not apparent damage, this will confirm that the control sector is the issue. have it replaced in this case.)

My whirlpool cabriolet will not start a load or add any water at all. It just makes a humming noise


Are your water lines turned on? If so The humming noise you hear is the solenoid that allows water to enter unit. If that solenoid is stuck no water will enter but you will hear the humming noise.

I get ESC error problum how to solve them


No water is detected having entered the machine. Check your water lines, make sure they're turned on and feeding water to the machine. If they are then you may have bad sensors in the washing machine. The ESC error occurs when no water is detected as having entered the machine. The Washing Machine upon not detecting water turns off the internal valves and kicks the error.

Cold water does not enter the Whirlpool Duet front loading washer (Model: GHW9150)


There are two solenoids back where the water enters the machine ( probably an ugly blue color). Possibly the Cold water solenoid failed or the wire feeding the solenoid fell off. Google Washing Machine Solenoid and you can see what it looks like. The Water hoses literally attach to it

My Whirlpool Duet front load washing machine is showing a F/H code. The manual says to check the hoses for kink/leaks etc. we have done that and there arent any. The machine still shows F/H what would be...


Hi

Error code FH appears when No water is detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip is not detected. If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. If there is no water entering the unit then make sure that the inlet valves are working fine. You may need to check the continuity at the inlet valves. If the valves are fine then check whether inlet water hoses as they might be plugged. Also check for inlet water screen at the valve. However, if the water is entering into the washer then the Drain pump might not be working. Also inspect the Pressure Switch hose whether it is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch. Also check hoses for leak and inspect the flow meter. Hope this helps...

My whirlpool duet washer has a code h f that keeps flashing and the door wrong unlock


This is a code for no water entering machine. Check the inlet screens on back of machine to make sure that they are not clogged. If water is entering fine I find that it is a pressure switch issues. If the screens are clean and no water is not entering then it is most likely a Computer Control Unit.

f20 code means no water is entering the machine. make sure your water hoses are connected properly and that the water is turned on. could also be a problem with your pressure switch.

My washer overflows. it wont stop putting water


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (110.########) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

(The 110 means that it was manufactured by Whirlpool, you also need to enter the 8 digit model number)

Also see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for these washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

It has testing procedures as well as a good description of how the washer works.

It sounds like a defective water level switch or water inlet valve.

See the following for how to release the console and cabinet on these machines in order to get to the switch for testing.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131

Basically, what happens is:

When the washer is turned on, the water inlet switch is closed allowing water to flow thru the inlet valve. When it senses that the machine is to the level selected by the water level dial, the switch opens shutting the inlet valves.

If the switch or valve is defective, water will continue to enter the machine.

The Whirlpool Service Manual has testing procedures (basis continuity tests with a multimeter) for both the switch and valve.
