There's no hot water Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally. If you're sure the machine isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests: Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on. Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct. Is there hot water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, completely replace it.

Most top loaders do not work like front loaders where they fill water at intervals. Top loaders usually just fill, it might be a bad solenoid valve
on the inlet, when you removed the hose to check screen did you place the hose in the washer and turn on the water to make sure there was water coming out of the hose.

Did you clean the filter? There is a filter in the inlet, a little filter that can be removed with a pair of pliers. Rinse it out and put filter back in its place. I think it would not even matter if you leave the filter out. Hot water filter is not blocked because it is not used as often as the cold water one. Clean both! I noticed a big drop in water flow if filter is dirty.

Where is the filter located and how often do you have to clean it?


Most washers have screen filters where the hot and cold water lines connect. The condition of your water supply would indicate how often you clean these screens. If you notice a decrease in water flow into the tub you should clean the screens.

Shut off the hot and cold water supply lines.
Drain the pressure from the lines by turning the timer dial through the fill cycle in both hot and cold water modes.
Remove the hot and cold water lines from the back of the washer.
Look for a screen inside the hose coupling or the washer inlet.
Remove screen and clean using a wire brush. If screen is damaged get a replacement at a hardware, or home improvement store.

The washing machine won't fill with water at all. we have cleaned the pump valve and we have checked the water lines. are there any other things that could be causing this problem?


You will want to check and make sure the door handle/lock is switching on. the front load unit will not fill with water with the door open. Check that the latch is engaging.

No cold water will enter machine but not water


Turn off the cold water.
Remove the cold water hose from the washer. Clean out the filter screen in the water valve. Re-attach the hose and turn the water back on. If you get no cold water replace the water valve.

Miele G 7856 Commercial Dishwasher


Hi. The above machine stops mid cycle and drain/fill light is on, also error code F3E, have cleaned both hot and cold water inlet filters, also checked drain pump and drain line, all ok. Machine drains with no issues and fills with hot water, runs for a while then shuts down.
Any ideas?

Have model 88675 with slow hot water fill


I once had this problem. The solution was to remove the hot water hose connection to the washer and look at the filter/screen inserted into the end of the hose connection on the washer machine. This screen protects the washer components from foreign particles entering. You may find a badly-clogged screen, so clean it. I have seen a cold water screen clean, while the hot water screen was clogged...something to do with hot water and minerals or iron in water.
