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...

Electrolux EWF1074 washer doesn't seem to be taking the water in as normal. We only have it connected for a cold wash. Could this be a solenoid problem


indicates that it is so
prove it by changing over the hose with the hot water hose and using the hot water solenoid which will activate the hot water solenoid that is now connected to the cold water tap
if that works get a new water control solenoid and replace the cold water solenoid

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...

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.
