No water coming into machine !!!

Have removed inlet watr filter, and found no blockage.

Machine goes into normal cycle & makes all the right noises, disharges water on the cycle, as I moved the cycle forward to check this, but is not getting water coming in !! when this happens its like the machine reads no water coming in & therefore stops.

Have checked the pipes for kinks as far as I can from what I can get to ! but find it hard to believe that after three years, that something has moved all of a sudden !

Take the main supply hose off remove the panel that covers the valve yoy should be able to see a red pipe with a white stopper in it. remove this and see if any water comes out if so rebuild the machine and see if that works. hope this helps

Washer spins but doesn't get the water out


hi Ruth.
Washing Machine Won't Drain Water Last updated on November 7th, 2017
If your washing machine won't drain water out this article gives advice on how to fix it. If the washing machine has only just been plumbed in and it won't empty then check this article first - you might not need to drain or pull the washier out - won't drain after being moved or plumbed in. Otherwise, before trying to repair it you need to manually drain out the water that's stuck inside.
If your washing machine is stuck full of water because it's gone dead, or won't drain after being connected to a different u-bend you need to read the appropriate paragraphs in the how to drain washing machine link above before doing anything else.
What are the main causes of not draining? If the washer appears to be functioning normally but simply won't pump away the water these are the most common causes -
  • A blockage somewhere
  • Something jammed in the pump
  • Pump failure
  • An electrical fault
Is the water pump running - or not? On the spin cycle, is the pump running but water isn't being pumped out? If yes read on. There are two places to check for blockages. If the pump isn't running then jump to - If the pump isn't running.

Is the pump making a loud grinding noise?

If the pump is making a loud grinding noise, either constantly or intermittently, there is likely to be something inside being tossed around by the impeller. It's possible for a pump to have bearing failure but in most cases it will be an obstruction (such as a coin) stuck inside the pump. With the water drained out and pump filter removed it should be possible to see into the pump (where the impeller is) to check for obstructions.

Checking for blockages

Is the drain hose connected to the u-bend under the sink? If so try checking the spigot for blockages. Note that if you cannot hear the pump running don't bother. A blockage here would not stop the pump running, nor would it make the pump stop making its normal noise.
This is a simple fix, and can be done without moving the washing machine. The drain hose is connected to the u-bend by a plastic spigot pushed into the end of the drain hose. Unscrew the spigot to inspect inside. Also check inside the u-bend where the spigot screws on. A small button, or accumulated bits of stringy threads and lint from laundry can get stuck here. It takes surprisingly little to stop the water being pumped away at this point.

Check for a blocked pump filter

Next you need to check for blockages in the main pump filter if your washing machine has one. Most do. You will need to have drained out as much water as possible before removing the filter. Also, put down large bath towels before removing the pump filter to soak up the water that will inevitably come out.
Taking the filter out It should be easy to pull the filter out. If unsure check your instruction manual or the pump filter link above. If the filter appears jammed and won't come out read the advice in the pump filter article. Don't make the mistake of assuming that anything found in the filter will account for the fault. The pump filter would need to be physically blocked by something like a sock, or a buildup of lint to stop the washing machine from pumping out.
If all you find is a few buttons and coins this will not be the reason your washing machine isn't pumping the water. Only an object actually jamming the pump impeller or a substantial blockage of the filter would account for not draining.
If the pump isn't running The most common reason a pump isn't running is because an obstruction is physically jammed inside it. Check that the impeller turns and it's not jammed (or broken and loose on the shaft). It may have a little magnetic resistance at one point but it should be at the same point on each revolution.
The impeller should turn fairly easily. It might be possible to hear a gentle hum in place of the normal pump sound although not necessarily. A hum would indicate the pump his electrically OK and is trying to run but is jammed. With water drained out of the washing machine remove the filter and check for obstructions. If no pump filter is fitted the pump may need removing to check.

Pump isn't jammed

If the pump is not jammed then it needs testing with a continuity test meter for open circuit resistance across the pump's terminals. An open circuit pump is clearly faulty and needs replacing.
if none of the above helps you out you might have to call an engineer out.

Asko W6021 would not fill with water


Our W6021 front has had a couple of instances where it would not start the fill cycle as usual. Normally it would be switched on,the relay would operate and the water would begin to enter the bowl. We tried a number of things including checking the hose and inlet filter for blockage. We then checked the outlet drain pump trap and found a coin and a drill bit lodged in the entry hole to the trap. Once the foreign objects were removed ,the machine operated as normal once again. I will be very careful in future to empty my pockets of metal things.

Neff washing machine stops half way through the cycle and the high water level light comes on


possible hose blockage or filter blockage. when half way through the cycle the machine evacuates the water to replace for rince cycle or to start spin cycle if the way is blocked the water cant go out so the machine can not finish the cycle, and usually the door will stay locked so not to flood, when the water is still in the machine. remove and check the drainage hose for kinks and blockage. also remove and check the filter under the machine. (be careful as this will let out all the water so have some towels or bucket ready to catch the water. once the filter is clean replace and restart your machine.
I hope this was useful.

I have a MAYTAG legacy Series manine. That i just bought from a retailer. My machine is connected to a cold water tap. can i still get a hot water wash if i select a warm or hot cycle? Secondly,...


hello bz... there can be no hot water wash or hot cycle without hooking up a hot water supply line. Also, you must plug that hot water inlet, the correct plug is available at most hardware stores. Finally, yes it is normal for the machine to stop before draining, as the transmission shifts. If the machine is very noisy, that is not normal. To reduce that noise you could put the machine on a piece of thick carpet to deaden the noise a bit. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

No programs will work


Could be that your solinoid is not working. check inlet pipe is not bent at rear of machine. Also may be worth removing inlet pipe and ensuring filter is not blocked where it goes into machine.

My hoover 540 washing machine started making funny noises a couple of loads ago (loud banging noise during spin cycle). Now it goes through whole cycle but when it gets to 'drain' part of the cycle,...


Sounds like a blockage in the outlet pipes or filter. It may be possible to drain it if you can get the outlet pipe (one from back of machine) outside, lay it flat on the ground as this will take it below the water level in the machine and may slowly drain. Once it drains out enough the machine should disengage the door lock to allow you to open it. Then check your filter and pipes for blockage. If no blockage is found then suspect faulty pump.

When starting wash cycle the dishwasher cda cw447 doesnt appear to be getting enough water in and is making a droning / whirring / electrical ? noise. pipes all connected ok inc aquastop water supply unit,...


Try removing the inlet pipe, and refitting, might fix it, else likely that the
Inlet water soleniod failing/failed or tiny mesh filter (it does come out for cleaning) behind the inlet hose clogged. Temporaily bypass the aquastop water stop unit; it might be the culprit!

A replacement solenoid is usually only about £10 from www.espares.co.uk, or ebay sellers (no connection with these but they are very good), fits in minutes (2 or 3 electrical spades ,and a posidrive or two) and usually fixes all water related problems. the noise you can hear is probably the solenoid trying to actuate, will be droning/buzzing sound.
could simply be stuck with some foreign matter in there that's got through the mesh filter but unlikely. they normally fail and sound terrible.

Don't throw your dishwasher away for the sake of a £10 part.
Good luck

Machine makes a buzzing noise and does not start when turned on


The buzzing noise could be the water inlet valve which is quite normal. Make sure the water is turned on, If it is, Turn off the water at the tap and remove the water inlet pipe from the back of the washing machine and check that the filter inside is not blocked. Other than that, it could be the vavle itself that`s not opening to let the water into the soap dispenser. Ian
