Noisy Water Fill

The washer makes a very high pitched squeal when the "waterfall" begins flowing. That noise occurs whenever the flow chokes back, so it would appear to be a control valve. Can you confirm the problem and how to fix it?

Changed the cold water valve and found it was the pump. Open up you washer (2 screws in back top) and you should find a diagnostic guide. Found a bad valve and pump. Bought the vlave $30 dollars and cleaned pump. 40 minutes.

My Whirlpool Duet washer is making a loud squealing noise when filling with cold water, and/or the water is reduced to barely a trickle. It does not make the noise/reduce cold water flow every time.


Hi.
Try to remove the sand filter(s) from the inlet hose. Both on the valve and on the water crane(tap) end. Common problem.
Usually this is the problem, but not always.

Washing maching flashes F H on time display


Hi


The FH code indicates a fill failure. The problem can be with the fill valves, flow meter or the pressure switch. This error occurs if the control doesn't see the flow meter turning. This usually a fault of the flow meter but be sure both the hot and cold water valves are working. Try a hot water wash cycle and confirm that hot water is coming into the washer. Check both valves and if they are working the problem is most likely the flow meter.

Also the FH error means it's either you have a drain problem if there is water in it or if if there is now water in it, make sure that both water inlets are turned all the way up. check to make sure that you don't have any water leaks anywhere visible.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

High pitched noise


This is a water pump about to blow, or a clogged filter or hose. The fact that you hear it immediately, and limited water level is involved, it's pretty much your bingo.
After turning off the water supply, unscrew the garden hose-like attachments for hot and cold water intake. There is sometimes a small filter right there where the water enters. If they're clogged, clean em.
Take the hoses and run them through an outside plug to make sure they aren't clogged with back flowed dirt from the filter and hard water.
If it still won't fill, you'll need to test the pump.
each machine is different, but if you follow the hoses from where your hoses enter the machine, you should be able to unscrew them at the other end.
Stick them in a deep bucket then turn on the machine and see what the pump does. Is the noise coming from it? (service or replace). Does water gush out of the pump into the bucket? (clean all hoses and filters, buy some machine grease and lube all the moving parts, including opening the water pump and giving it a generous amount of grease.
Put it all back and your squeal will one way or another be gone and you'll have plenty of water

High pitched noise during hot water only


This problem is usually caused by LOW water pressure going in the washer.
1. Remove hot water hose and flush all debree from water line.
2. Change water filters and you'll be good to go.

GOOD LUCK!

LG makes a high pitched sound during water add cycle


Hello.
The high pitched sound is a definite sign that the water valve in use is failing. The squeal is from a restricted water flow through the valve because it is not opening all the way. You will need to choose cold or hot to narrow down which valve is bad and replace that one.

"LF" is a "LONG FILL" error. This will occur if water fill time exceeds 10 minutes. I don't know why this would pop up at the end of a cycle. Normally this is associated with filling at the beginning of a cycle. There is also an "FL" error, which is an "OVERFILL" error. This is normally associated with a problem with either the control board or wiring harness. This normally occurs when there is an open circuit between pins 1 and 3 on P17 of the control board. That one is a little more involved and usually requires replacement of the control board, wiring harness, or both. If you, indeed, have an "LF" error I would check your water source coming in. Check your fill hoses for kinks or obstructions, first. Then, turn the water supply off and remove the hoses from the back of the machine. Place one end of each hose inside the wash tub and turn both water supply lines back on to make sure you have good water flow coming through the hoses. Replace the hoses if they show signs of bulging, cracks, leaking and/or restricted water flow. Turn water back off and check the fill valve inlet ports on the back of the washer for accumulations of sediments in the screens. It doesn't take much to restrict water flow. You can clean the screens with a cotton swab. If you check everything and still have problems with the error code popping up, I would replace the fill valve. It's an easier fix and less expensive than a control board. If you decide to replace the valve, it is located under the console on your washer, I believe. It's fairly simple with a couple of screws to remove on the console and a couple of connectors and hoses on the valve to remove. Make sure you unplug the machine and turn off the water supply before attempting. I hope you find this advice helpful. Let me know if this works for you.
