Water inlet leaking

We just moved and hooked up our washing maching at our new house. It was working fine before the move. Now when I hook up the water hoses and turn the hose on, water leaks from the water inlet valve. It leaks a lot, not just a drip. I have tightened the hoses, taken them off and put them back on and it still leaks. Do I need to replace the inlet valve?

Re: water inlet leaking

Take the hose off the valve and look inside it. There should be a flat rubber seal inside the hose coupling that seals to the valve. It sounds like you have lost this washer out of the end of the hose. You can pick them up at any hardware store. If they are over 5 years old, I suggest replacing the hoses completely anyway.
If this is not the problem, you may have cross threaded the hose on the valve. If this is the case you may have to change the valve.
Post back if you have any questions.

I plugged in my washer maching after i moved. I wanted to check the wall outlet and the washer wont turn on. Water hoses are still not connected. Is it because of that? Do i need to hook up the water hoses...

The breaker may have tripped as some model washers draw significantly more power than others. you should check the breaker and make sure its rated for your washer. I would also not suggest running your washer with out hooking it up to the water line as this can damage the pump.

Anyone anygood troubleshooting a Whirlpool Washer?

Thats a problem. Did you have the washer laid on it's side when moving? Timer switch would be first look. Hot water not working,but cold is? Mmmm.. Water inlet is pretty simple no real mechanical parts except intake valve for each inlet. Valve could be plugged or stuck closed on hot intake. Temp switch could be bad and that would cause the water intake to shut.I guess, but not usually a problem unless old machine. Make sure the fuse in control panel is intact. Underside of washer is a relay switch called wigwag. If it is bad nothing will cycle, easy fix 10 minutes and $15 in most cases. But check out before jumping to solve. All ways check cheapest parts first. Lid switch would also cause the no start and spin cycle problems.

Check the filters inside of the hot water inlet.

Try hooking the cold hose to the hot inlet to see if the inlet is blocked by debris.

You can remove the valve assy and flush it out.

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.

Perfoma washing machine won't go through rinse cycle.

After investigating the logic of the machine and how the timer works, I traced it down to the cold water solinoid rubber stopper It had crud in it and just hummed. After cleaning it out it ran just fine..
This is an easy fix.. If it cant run water it wont go to the next part of the cycle.
I hope this helps. I have more info if required.

Washing maching won't rinse in cold water

hi is this hot and cold water piped machine? ie two connections on rear of machine for hot and cold pipes ? if so are your pipes connected properly on machine and the water supplies? if cold supply is connected to hot supply then wash inlet allows water in washer then washes in cold? but when rinse is due? the elec valve that has hot water pipe connected?? is failing to open allowing water flow of hot on rinse so advise recheck pipes for flow of water from both? when disconnected from machine if flow ok then possible valve blocked/faulty hope you can understand above? if you can give more info on your machine it would help to offer a remedy?
