Sounds like the solenoid is not working or screen is clogged. I bet it's the solenoid.

Water does not get hot on a hot wash


Shut off the water. Disconnect & check the BOTH water supply hoses at the MACHINE to check for obstructions / kinks / etc: Check for and clean any strainer / filter on the hoses and inlet to the washer. Direct the hoses into a tub or other container and turn water ON. make sure you have water flow from BOTH hoses and that one is HOT and the other is COLD. If OK, reconnect to machine. Turn water back ON. Choose a WARM wash.

If you get COLD only, you probably have a bad HOT solenoid - if HOT only you have a bad COLD solenoid. Be sure by:

Shut water off and swap hose connections (hot to cold & cold to hot) and try again.

If you get COLD only, you probably have a bad COLD solenoid - if HOT only you have a bad HOT solenoid. If you get HOT only, you probably have a bad COLD faucet / hose - if HOT only you have a bad COLD faucet / hose.

Replace the bad solenoid as needed. Good luck!

The cold water line now takes a long time to fill for a rinse. Yes, I checked the hose to its wall outlet.


FYI, Only 3 potential issues would typically cause this problem.... in order of simplicity to correct:
1. Clogged screen in the water connector(s). Remove the cold water line going to the washer - both ends. Inspect and clean the screen(s) and blow through the hose to varify that it is clear.
2. Solenoid that allows water into the washer is failing. Reverse the cold and hot hoses. Does the problem move to the hot side? If so, the problem is the solenoid-replace it.
3. If number 2 does follow the hose transfer, the faucet washer has broken and is blocking the water flow. SHUT off the water supply to the house, open another faucet to relieve the water pressure, replace the washer in the cold water shut off valve at the wall.

Hot water fills very slow(30 MIN OR MORE TO FILL) good water flow from spicket to washer, screens are clear. sewems to be something with the washer its self


Might be a bad inlet valve. To confirm, swap the hot and cold hoses to your washer so that the cold water feeds the hot water connection and the hot water feeds the cold water connection. Turn off both hot and cold water faucets. Set the washer for a warm water wash. Turn on the cold water faucet, and check the flow. Then turn off the cold water faucet, and turn on the hot water faucet and check the flow. If the cold water flow fill slowly, then the problem is with the inlet valve.

It an easy part to obtain from an appliance supply house. To install disconnect the hoses to the back of the machine, and remove the back panel to get access to the valve. Should only take a couple of minutes to remove and install. Hope this helps you.

When Istrted to wash my cloths , the washer stop and post F-20


This error code indicates a water supply problem.
Are both the hot and cold water faucets turned on?
Turn on the water. Check the household faucets to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Completely open both faucets for proper fill.
NOTE: Both hot and cold water must be connected to the washer and turned on; the washer will not properly operate with only one incoming source of water.

Cold water will not enter washing machine


Turn off the faucet in wall. Unscrew the inlet hose to examine whether there is clogging in the tiny screens. Both ends as well as machine input hose. Clear out properly. Open faucet to check. See that you have a "y" or "F" type adaptor for your hot and cold inputs of the machine. This is if you have only one faucet in wall for your washing machine. If this does not work you have to check your (plug off the wall first) wires to the inlet pump of your machine - this probably has come off or is loose. And if this does not work, your inlet valve could be defective.

Water problems


If the washer doesn't fill properly, or if only one temperature of water fills the tub, something is probably keeping water from entering the machine or it's draining before the tub fills completely. Set the controls to the first wash cycle, and then try each water temperature setting. If both hot and cold water seem to be entering the washer with good pressure, water may be draining out prematurely during the fill cycle, through siphoning action. Be sure the drain hose's connection to the standpipe is at least 34 inches above the floor (otherwise, discuss the problem with a plumber). An air gap between drain hose and stand pipe that prevents backflow is also good to have. If hot works but cold doesn't, or vice versa: 1) Be sure both the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. 2) Be sure the supply hoses are not kinked. 3) Turn off the faucets. Unscrew the hoses from the faucets and drain them into a bucket. Hold the bucket under the faucets and test them to make sure they both work and have plenty of pressure (see HERE for information on replacing faucets). Screw the hoses back onto the faucets. 4) Unscrew the hoses from the inlet valves and clean the filter screens just inside them; these may be clogged. To do this, pry out the screens with a screwdriver (this can be difficult; the screens may be inside the valves), flush them under running water, then put them back into the hose. If the screens look defective, replace them. Then screw the hoses back onto the valves. Be careful not to cross-thread the hose threads when screwing them back onto the valves. 5) Call an appliance repairperson; there may be a defective inlet valve or a problem with the controls.
