Try removing each inlet hose in turn and check for water flow from each hose. If seem slow, try reversing that hose to back-flow the inlet filter screen which should remove loose debris, but won't affect any hard water deposits (soak the screen end in white vinegar and hot water for an hour or so). If both hoses flow well, check the entry holes in the machine for plugged screens. If all else fails, replace the twin inlet solenoids. Hope this helps!

No water flowing into drum, water supply is fine, just humms


My Samsung washer was not filling with water after cleaning the debris filter. All I did to fix it was to dump a half gallon of water into the tumbler, then I ran the beginning of the rinse cycle and it worked. It seems like the pump needed to be primed.

Coffee drips slowly and water doesn't drain completly from filling chamber. had machine for about 6 months and was happy until today.All I hear is a humming, a slow drip of half a cup and then it shuts off...


mcdevito75 here, Your coffee maker most likely needs cleaning, Water will leave deposits in the brewings ports over time and will have to be cleaned out, Follow your owners manual on cleaning your coffee maker.
