Check the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small metal screens inside the valve (especially the hot water side) and check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid. Here is a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

My washing machine does not clean clothes properly and washing powder residue is left after wash on clothes I have Daewoo Dwd F1243


start a wash with a load and after he machine fills with water check to see if the drum rotates this is usually the problem if you get powder residue on wash with no drum action the powder does not disperse also check to see if the machine spins if it does check belt tension if not check belt tension and motor brushes

Water leaking from the panel under the turn knob


Water comes in the back, then goes via to solenoid valves to the back of the powder tray, it then is distributed through holes above each compartment, take out the powder tray (push down the blue bit at the back of the softener compartment) and check for cracks or even blockages, (water goes from tray down the back and through a short rubber hose straight into the drum.

My washing machine is over filling it is draining away but only if you put it on a spin the inlet water is constant and is always filling and wont cut off then it leaks from door seal and tray for washing...


Water inlet is controlled by a level switch and hot/cold water valves,( solenoids). It seems most likely that one of the water valve diaphragms is faulty;turn off hot and then cold taps to determine which one is leaking.A handy person can often strip the valve and replace the diaphragm, or else
a service person may be needed.
At times, the water is measured by weight,(depth) and during spray rinse by the timer, therefore, if you are using a cold rinse, ,most likely the cold valve is faulty.

I have a 13 year old indesit front loader washing machine and the water intake is extremely slow. The water pressure is fine and so it is definitely the washing machne. Can you tell us where to look? There...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
2 things- water and I suspect a possible heating problem!
Water
If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call ;-0(
Heating
It is possible that the heater is taking longer than it should to heat the water to the correct temperature. This could be that the element is coated in calcium. I suggest you run the contents of a couple of sachets of proprietary limescale removing powder/fluid through it. The most efficient way is to put the contents in an empty washer and pour a kettle of hot water into the drum then leave overnight. In the morning run just a spin; the water mix will then go through the drain filter and drain motor impeller blades, doing absolutely NO harm whatsoever, in fact some good!
You could also consider repeating the action ;-0)

If these have assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

first if you drum is filling again after wash you may have a faulty hot or cold inlet valve turn water taps of after wash has finished if no water in drum the next day just a matter of isolating which valve it is

WF860 doesn't clean the clothes at all!


Lack of water in wash cycles. possibly due to blocked filters in water valves where hoses connect to machine or faulty water valve, normally cold inlet is the main problem

Sounds like you have some sort of obstruction in the drum, and this is stopping it draining, thereby when it goes into spin the water is being forced out of the dispenser by centrifugal force.
Try turning the drum by hand, and if you feel a lot of resistance, then you have got something stuck in the drum.
Please rate this comment.
thanks.

Smoke smell coming from my 80 series Washer


do you actually see smoke or is it you have a burning smell
if you have a smell the motor may be overloading on spin
sometimes this is due to too much soap powder in wash
and when machine spins the water cant get away due to soap suds under and around bowl
acts like a brake on motor
try no soap powder in next wash
a good way to tell is that you still have soap in washing if you lift the lid (with no soap powder added)
