Question about Washing Machines
My GE Washing machine (model S1070A3WW) works fine for hot water, but on the cold cycle (which is the only option for rinse) it takes FOREVER to fill up! The cold water barely trickles in. Today the dial shows that the whole wash & rinse cycle should be over but water is still trickling in. Is this b/c it takes way to long to fill?
We have well water, and I have had to clean the cold hose from the wall to washer a few times (cleaned screen & replaced screen).. Trying to figure out if there is a problem with the washer, somewhere else I need to check for a clog, or just call a plumber?
Thank you for ANY suggestions!
Well the first thing i would do is take the cold line loose from the washer get a large bucket and open the cold line with the hose off and see what kind of pressure there is if very little need a plumber or in crese your well pump pressure check your screen while you have the hose off if all of this is ok id replace the washer water valves

Yes remove the hose from where it connects to washer look inside water valve and remove plastic screen with needle nose pliers Without damaging it. Also make sure that it gets back in proper as the valve will be damaged without it.
