The machine doesn't seem to be taking in any water for the wash. The water feed and hoses are ok but the machine goes through the wash cycle dry.

Do the water valves click when you turn on the unit? Have someone test to see if the valves are getting 120vac to them when the water should be running in. Usually both valves don't fail at the same time unless the common wire to both is bad. Most problems of this nature end up in the wire connectors or timer control unit..The connectors at the valve or on the control itself. If you do have 120v at the valves then the valves themselves must be bad..only other way is if the line from the valves to the tank is plugged....highly unlikely. Let me know what you find and maybe I can help out more...

Why does my washing machine take so long to fill?


Check to see if the screens are clogged on your water inlet valves. Just turn your water off at the Hot and Cold faucets, then remove the water hoses from the back of the wash machine.
The section that the hoses were attached to on the back of the wash machine is the water inlet valve (or valves). Take a flashlight and inspect for blockages on the screens (they're located right in the valve inlets).

If you see grit or calcium build up, you can usually pull the tiny plastic screens out with a pair of pliers and clean them out under running water. Then, put them back in and hook everything back up. Turn on your Hot and Cold faucets and see if your washing machine fills faster.

It should work, but if not, you'll need to replace the water inlet valve (or valves, depending on your model)

Good luck!

Kenmore Model 21082000 won't fill during wash cycle


Try checking the lid switch. Sometimes the switch goes bad or the stem breakes and when the lid shuts it will not activate the switch. Usually located on the right side of the dryer. When the lid closes it will allow water to.fill. Washers are easy to fix and the part is cheap. Get it from amazon dont pay the crazy price your dealer wants. Trust me, i just fixed my mothers...

I have a kenmore 80 series washer that goes thru all the cycles except that it doesn't drain after rinsing and this is my serial and model number if you need it: mod20852990 ser4549516


does it drain after the wash cycle before therinse cycle? if not there are usually 2 belt on the bottom of the washer, one is for the aggitator the other for the water pump. check to see if the belt is still attached and also take the drain hose down to floor level to see if the water gravity feeds out, if it does not pour out then your pump would likely be clogged from lint.

Hi got bosch clasixx 1400 wash machine not taking conditioner still there after every wash cycle


The likely cause is that the channel through which the water flows into the detergent drawer is clogged-up with congealed black gunk that has built up from the debris in the water supply. The channel that feeds the fabric softener section (middle bit) is actually quite narrow, hence it doesn't take much build-up of gunk to stop the flow of water.
Try taking out the detergent drawer and with a brush, try scrubbing the underside of the 'keep' where the drawer goes into, to remove any black gunk that has built-up in the holes where the water jets out from.
If this doesn't work, then try the following. It will take you between 1-2 hours depending on skill and you will need a couple of tools to help you do it. I am by no means great at DIY, but I managed to do it by myself in about 1.5 hrs. Here goes:
Try the following, it worked for me:
(disconnect the power and water supply before you start)
1. Take out the detergent tray
2. Remove the contol panel from the front of the washer (need a 'Star' shaped screwdriver to do so - 2 different sizes)
3. Take off the top of the washing machine.
4. Remove the plastic 'keep' that the detergent drawer slides into. This can be a bit fiddly and you will need to detach the 2 water hoses that feed into the keep. For this you will need a pair of plyers to pinch together the hose clips that are holding the hoses in-place. You may also need to detatch the strip of the metal that runs along the edge of the front of the washer in order to get the 'keep' out.
5. Once you have removed the 'keep', look at the underside (the bit with all the cross-shaped holes that the water flows through). You will notice that this is actually two layers - you need to split this apart. No need for any tools - perhaps just a knife to run-along the edge where the 2 parts are hooked-into each other. Again this can be a bit fiddly - but it is essential.
6. Clean it! Clean away all the black gunk that has bulit-up. This is the MAIN part of the job.
7. Reassemble and you should be good to go!
GOOD LUCK!

Washing machine cycle far too long


Hi Fiona.I believe the cold valve is probably faulty & is not flowing fast Its probably dribbling water in?taking forever to fill.the machine should be giving up & beeping at you if thats the case.If you have a faulty cold valve then switching to warm won't help as the hot valve will close itself off to compensate for the lack of cold water..afterall you have told the machine to fill with warm,,if it cant make warm water because of a faulty cold valve then the hot will decrease to a point where its not letting any water thru..try a hot only wash..if it goes thru wash cycle ok then good chance its cold valve problem.wow i hope that helped.

Hoptopint wd72 - E15 and wont take water in


Hi, - fixed this myself. Problem was a blocked pipe from front of drum to pressure switch. - The machine was fooled in to thinking it had water in when it hadnt! - hence the error 15. that was also why it would not fill. - im guessing the heater blew because it was on with no water to keep it cool!

Cold water into tub of wash machine


For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

Asko 12605 overheating the wash water


(even not taking in hot water when filling before the wash stage which seems good)

The washer fills with cold water then heats it up 3 degrees a min. Your problem does sound like a faulty thermostat. Especailly if the glass door does get hot even if it is on 85f.
