Check the screens at the water inlet valve on the back of the washer, the small screens inside may be blocked due to calium buidlup from hard water, simply remove the screens and clean them out.

We can hear water running but it's not filling the wash tub. There is no water leaking anywhere.


check that the tap is fully opened , the filter in the end of the hose is not blocked
check that the tap washer is not jammed off in the tap as they can expand and not move up to let water in
check water inlet solenoid is functional

I have a Miele W1918 washer which has worked perfectly for a decade. Now there is not enough water to fill the tub during the first 'rinse' phase of normal cycles or the 'separate rinse' cycle. The machine...


I have exactly the same problem. I am currently getting around the issue by letting the machine do the washing then at the end of that cycle do a manual rinse cycle.

Rinse water barely trickles out of my washer


Do you fill the machine with hot water only?

If so, this is what I suspect. The filters in the inlet hoses on the back of the washer need cleaning. Remove the garden hose connectors, remove filter, clean, replace.

When filling with hot only you get a lot of pressure thru one hose. When you rinse, the best you can do pressure-wise is cold rinse -- but the cold water filter is going to be more clogged than the hot so it delivers less water.

When you use warm rinse, you get mediium pressure thru both lines, again less water than al hot on filling the machine.

Cold water in the rinse cycle of the washer just trickles


Sounds like cold water solenoid is not opening all the way, its easy to replace, and is found inside the wash machine where the hose connects

Water trickles in


you may likely have a faulty water valve or water is back filling through the waste hose if it is plumbed into the sink. also is the supply water pressure low? it may not be assisting the water valve to shut fully.

Karen, start by removing the cold water hose to the inlet valve in back. It will have a screen in the inlet valve. Make sure the screen is clear of sand and debris. Start there and post back. Catriver.
