My bleach dispenser remains filled with water after the wash cycle. Is this normal


Check to see if the water valve is clogged. Remove the hoses on the back and see if the cold water is clogged. If not could be the valve is faulty or the control is faulty.

Tip

The washing machine is overfilling the water?


A defect in the water-inlet valve .The water inlet valve is the device which allows the water in the machine when the machine is turned on.but if the valve is faulty then it will not stop water to the machine even when its turned off.so the washing machine overfills with water.
The valve is located at the back of the washer, and it will have water hoses hooked up to the back of it. Shut off the supply of water to your washer. Disconnect both hoses at the back of the washer. Before removing or checking the valve.you need to replace the valve if its faulty. If the water -inlet valve is checked OK.Then the other possibility to check out is the Water-level switch.The Water-level switch is the part that senses the water in the tub.if the water reaches to its required level.it command the water supply to stop.But if the switch is faulty then it will not sense the water and water keeps on filling and at last water overfills due to Water-level switch not working properly. The Water-level switch is located at the bottom of the outer tub in the washing machine. This will help.Thanks.

Washing machine won't fill


This can be due to a clogging of the inlet valve as the water flow is restricted. You can remove the water line to the washer and check the flow , then check if the inlet valve works after the power is switched on the washer , If there is no flow to the drum then the inlet valve is faulty provided there is power to the valve or the main controller is faulty

GE washing maching not filling


Several factors can cause a GE washing machine not to allow water to enter the drum, including closed valves, kinked hoses, a faulty electrical breaker or sediment in the water lines. Sediment occurs most often when the water to the home is off due to electrical outages or when installing items in the plumbing. Cleaning the screens will remove a sediment blockage, allowing water into a washing machine.
    • 1 Check each water valve for the hot and cold water lines to make sure they are open completely. Open valves are turned completely to the left. Check the fuse at the electrical box to make sure it is not faulty, and check to make sure the washer is plugged securely into the outlet. Observe the water supply hoses to make sure there are no kinks from the supply valves to the back of the appliance.
      Observe the water supply valve handles to see if they are cracked. If so, they need replacing.
    • 2 Turn off both the hot and cold water supply valves. Turn each knob completely counterclockwise to turn them to the off position. Pull the washer forward to reach the water supply valves, hoses and the back of the washing machine. Place one hand on each side of the washing machine and slightly lift the front while pulling straight out from the wall.
    • 3 Place a bucket at the rear of the appliance. Use adjustable pliers to unscrew the hot and cold water hoses on the back of the washing machine. Turn each hose counterclockwise to unscrew and remove from the washing machine while pointing them into the bucket to catch any water in the hoses.
    • 4 Turn on the hot water supply valve and hold the hose pointing into the bucket. Observe to see if water is coming out of the hose or trickling out of the hose. Repeat this procedure for the cold water supply hose. Limited water or no water flow indicates that the lack of flow is at the valve end of the water supply hoses.
    • 5 Pull the filters out of the washer valves with needle-nose pliers. Rinse under warm water to clean out any sediment and replace them in the hot and cold water washer valves on the appliance.
    • 6 Unscrew the hot water supply hose from the valve using adjustable pliers. Turn the hose connector clockwise to unscrew and remove. Repeat this procedure with the cold water supply hose. Pull out the screen from each hose with needle-nose pliers and rinse under warm water to clean. Replace the screens.
    • 7 Replace both water supply hoses on the washer valves and the washing machine and tighten them with adjustable pliers. Slide the washing machine back into place and level the legs by slightly lifting the front of the washing machine and setting it back down.

Kenmore elite washing machine, cold water will not fill. hot water works fine.


If your machine has 2 water hoses connected check to see if both water valves are connected and switched on, if so the you may have a faulty cold water valve. If you have only 1 water hose then the cold water valve on the twin or triple valve is faulty. You can change these easily buy removing the top panel and removing the valve, usually only 2 screws. Hope this helps.

Our bosh washing machine does not seem to be rinsing properly do you have any solutions? I was wondering if the water pressure has any thing to do with the problem.

Hi you have a faulty water valve that is allowing water to weep past. if the machine is hot and cold fill. turn off the hot water tap. the machine will still work with cold water only. if it stops the weeping through you know the hot valve is faulty if it does not the cold valve is faulty. just replace whichever is the culprit.

Water is continuously draining from my samsung washing machine . due to this unable to keep washing the clothes .why the problem come & what is the remedial measure to rectify?


Possible that the drain value is half blocked and so is not able to block the water in the tub. Remove the connection to the valve and check if this drains , if so it is confirmed. Remove, clean the dirt and reset. If the leak stays then the valve is faulty.
Also it can be due to partial voltage to the drain valve to keep it open which means that the program controller is faulty. This is confirmed when the drain stops as the connection to valve is taken off.

Water entering the machine and not stopping


Hi, check water solenoid valve again, or give it a little tap, sometimes they get stuck, when you remove plug, if you had a timer problem, water would stop, your water solenoid valve have to be faulty, if you purchase it, you should return it. if it were a used one it's defected. the only other thing is if you have high water pressure in your house/building, probably that could force it open, but most unlikely, you should check, but first check water solenoid valve, it could be a mechanical fault, inside of water solenoid valve, you can remove water solenoid valve, put it apart and make visual check of plunger and all other parts inside of valve, if same problem continues, replace water solenoid valve. let me know, if your problem continues. Good luck.
