Our Roper Top Loading Washing Machine won't fill with cold water and the machine makes a electrical buzzing noise when you turn it on set to Cold/Cold.


Lift the top of your washing machine by unscrewing the back or remove the back and you will find a code and test sheet inside, you normally will find it at the top edge of the machine from or back. Very easy to use if followed to a T.

Some washers require that both water sources are connected. If you are content with cold - water washing only, I would get a Y-hose connector and run both sides of the washer to the cold water line. See picture below for details.

The cold water is not working in my washing machine


Check the supply hose filter, and the filter on the intake of the solenoid. Switch the wires on the solenoid to see if rinse will put hot water into the machine, the contact at the timer may be going bad. While reversed, see if it puts cold water into the wash, that will test the solenoid.

No cold water enters tub. Everything gets washed hot no matttter what the setting.


You water line filters may be stopped up. This happened to me once and I unscrewed the two hoses next to the machine and looked. There was a filter that I could remove, made of hard plastic. I took the filters out of each hose and screwed the hoses back on the machine, without the filters. It worked for years. The other thing that I have done is I once had a machine I couldn't get unclogged and the line didn't work for my cold water so I turned off my hot water and I took the hot water hose and put it to the cold water tap. My cold water came into the machine by the hot water hose. I used it for years afterwards. I just had to wash everything in cold water.

Hi I have a problem with my Kenmore washing machine,in particular I can not use hot water anymore. When I use my washing machine hot water does not stop at set water filling level (law, medium,high)...


Please post the model number for your washer. It sounds like your hot water valve has failed and is not closing. Unplug your washer's power cord and turn the hot water spigot that comes out of the wall on. If you still get water filling your washing machine, it's definitely the washer's valve and you will need to install a new set (hot and cold valves are both part of the same assembly).

Washing machine stops during rinse cycle.lid switch is working


Most whirlpool washers have a cold water rinse . Turn the washer on the first wash and set for cold/cold . If no water goes in , then the water valve is the problem . Provided that the lid switch is good .

Does Not Rinse


Check each temperature during initial wash fill. Set to hot water, is hot water coming out? Set to cold water, is cold water coming out? The rinse cycle is cold only. If cold water is not working machine will just stop at rinse.

If cold water not working:
Disconnect cold water hose from machine. Inspect the filter screen on the cold water connection. DO NOT REMOVE SCREEN. If full of debris, use a spray bottle with a hard spray to remove debris. If unable to remove or cold is still not working, replace valve.

No hot water to wash


Is the hot water hot that is coming to the washer? Are you using the correct settings on the unit? If yes to both then either the solinoid water valve is bad or the timer switch unit is bad. Try going to a totally hot water setting. While turning on the machine feel of the hot water line at the machine and see if you notice a buzz or feel a click as you turn on the machine. On this setting does water run in and is it hot or cold. If water runs and it is cold try going to a total cold setting and see if you get cold or hot water. Is this a new setup or has it been working and stopped? If new, you could have the hoses connected backward. If you get water in both hot and cold settings but cold both ways then your hot water heater is not working....let me know....
