Water keeps filling even when not in use


hi Jeremy.
Why does my washing machine keep filling up with water when not in use? Ensure that the waste pipe of the washing machine is higher at one point than the drum of the machine, this will prevent water running back into the machine. Normally this would fill the machine with dirty water. Or it could be a faulty water inlet valve, which will fill the machine with clean water.22 Sep 2007

IT KEEPS FILLING UP WITH WATER AND OVERFLOWS


There is a tube next to the drum that senses the water level, take the screws out of the back of the machine near the top and then you can lift the top off over the drum, look for the tube and see if it is plugged with lint dirt or softener. Clean it out. If that is not the problem then check the sensor that it plugs into to be sure it is not bad

Water keeps filling up the drum and inlet light flashes


either the inlet water valve is bad and needs to be replaced or the controller for it is not cutting off the electricty to it, If you are going to replace something, replace the water inlet solenoid valve.

Asko W6021 won't fill. It clicks and starts, but no water fills drum. I've cleaned drain trap but don't know how to clean inlet filter as suggested in manual.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
The water inlet filters are inside where the hot and cold water supply hoses screw into the machine. Turn the water off, unscrew the hoses and they should be visible. However it might not be those causing the machine not to fill. If they needed cleaning the water would fill- but taking longer each wash.
If you confirm the filters are clear, it is more likely to be symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, or the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

Drum filling with water


An obstruction in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! Good luck !
