Re: laundry washing machine

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

Washer filling problem

Check to hose to the water level control. It goes from the outside of the tub up to the control which is located in the same area as the timer. It's usually round with the end of that tube and at least 2 wires connected to it. Disconnect the hose and blow air through it. Reconnect and try again. Still no fill, try filling with that tube disconnected. Watch it the entire time as with the tube off the water should not stop. If it fills all the way with the tube off the water control unit has a problem.

My Maytag Performa washing machine will not stop filling with water and start the next cycle

you need to unplug it from the power when it does that to see if it stops filling. That will tell you if it is a valve issue or a problem with the controller

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).

I have a top loading Kenmore Washing Machine. I don´t have the excat model but looks like a KENMORE HEAVY DUTY SERIES 70 AUTOMATIC WASHER, MODEL # 110.92273100. The problem presents after finishing...

You may have 2 defective parts.
First,make sure the hot and cold water hoses are connected correctly and both turned on.
If the water fill problem is the same,the water temp switch is bad.
The not filling after the wash cycle could be a bad lid switch.
Set the machine for SPIN and turn it on.
If it does not spin,replace the lid switch.

My neptune TL stops at 11 minutes and flashes "nf"

My comments are based on the FAV6800A/FAV9800A.
NF = No Fill. Your machine has reached a Control Board internal timer and has not seen proper signaling from the Pressure Switch for expected water fill for the wash cycle selected.
Possible fail points.
1. Pressure Switch is not signaling for properly tor water fill.
2. Water inlet valve is restricted or not functioning.
Please confirm your machine model number is it a FAV6800A or FAV9800A? I’m going to assume your machine model is a one of those models. Here is a link for the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual.
If you can let me know how much water is in the wash basket when your Control Board triggers the no fill error “NF” to the display? I would prefer you select Quick Wash cycle with minimal machine settings for the water fill. Do you have the issue with a cold temp select fill, a warm/hot temp select fill?
If you want to DIY I would suggest you become familiar with how to get in Service Mode. We may need to go to page 16 of the SM and possible check for correct Pressure Switch transitions in Board Functional Test Input Control Keys.

We will continue after your feedback…..Rich

If I get you correct, the hot water is not coming into the machine or it is not working at all.
