Have you checked the Water Valve Filters? Remove the hoses from the back of the machine and look into the back of the Valves. You will see the mesh filters in there. Remove them with a pair of pliers and clean them before replacing them.

Also behind the removed filter on the HOT Valve you will see a black rubber grommet. With a pair of Long Nose Pliers, Remove this and the plastic seating base behind it. This is a Restrictor Valve which reduces the flow of water into the machine as required when you use a combination boiler or you are cold mains filling only. This should be removed in Low Pressure Situations.

My Indesit 7105 has flashing H20 lights, have checked but no blockages. It fills and drains fine, It wont agitate though, any ideas?


The machine does not fill with water or 'H20' flashes in the display.
The water inlet hose is kinked. • The water inlet hose is not connected to the water supply. • The water pressure is too low. • The water tap has not been turned on to allow water to flow into the machine. • There is no water supply to the house. • The inlet valve filter is blocked. • The START/PAUSE button has not been pressed.

Faulty pressure switch machine thinks there is no water in the machine.

Bosch WAY32540AU showing LOW WATER PRESSURE but pressure and taps are fine. All filters are clean.


Not sure how you can measure the pressure in the machine, but I think you did. When you did and the pressure in the machine is good, the sensor must be defect. BUT. if you did not measure the pressure in the machine, you should check if nothing is wrong with the water filter on the beginning of the water hose (closest to the tap) and you should check the hose is not bent and nothing is on it, throttling the free water flow.

Green light on saying wash, cant get start button to light up red, but machine sounds like it going to start but nothing happens


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It's a possibility that it could be waiting for water to be fed in- difficult for us to judge remotely ;-0(

If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call and a check that it isn't the control PCB ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,

Water fills really slow. When you push button to change water temperature the water comes out better for a tick better then back to slow. Is there anything to fix this?


Hi just read your posting.1st turn the taps off and remove the cold water hose from the tap and machine ends.Check the little filters at the ends of the hose for blockages.Also check the machine end where the hose attaches for a blocked filter in the water valve.Now once the filters are clean put the hose on the tap end and the other end of the hose into a bucket.Now turn the tap on and check to see if you have good water pressure.If you do then replace the hose to the machine.Now repeat on the hot hose.If you are still getting low water pressure into the machine and your water pressure is good from the taps then your water valve or valves are faulty.Please reply on how you got on.Looking forward to your reply.

Fills with water and then stops and beeps and won;t continue. The hot and cold water buttons are flashing. Waterr starts trickling in and it is slowly spinning but doesn't seem to agitate


Hi just read your posting.The 2 lights that are flashing means your machine has not detected any water level difference.1st turn off both hot and cold taps and 1st remove the cold inlet hose from the machine end,Put the end of the hose into a bucket and turn the tap on.You should get a good flow of water.If you do not get a good flow of water then remove the tap end of the hose and see if you are getting water out of the tap.Check the inlet filters on both ends of the hose to see if they are blocked.If they are blocked clean them with a brush.Check also the water valve end where the hose connected to the machine to see if this filter is blocked. Once you have water coming out of the hose and all the filters are clean refit the hose and repeat to the hot hose.Now select a cycle and push start.If the water flow is good then the machine will work properly.If you still get slow water even when you have good pressure coming out of the hoses then your water valves are faulty.Please reply on how you got on and for further advice.looking forward to your reply.

Hi! My hot water taps from the wash hand basin and mixer bath has low pressure. I`ve got a combi boiler in the first floor. Can I install a single impeller pump connected from the hot water outlet from the...


In a word no. Combi boilers work on balanced pressure.ie the mains cold supply to the boiler should be around 1 bar minimum which would give a hot water pressure of the same 1 bar. Assuming the cold water pressure is fine, it sounds like you have a restricted flow on the hot side. If you live in an area with water problems the hot water systems pipework calcify over time effectively reducing water flow. Unless any flexi hoses are kinked, check if there are any filters in the appliances that may be blocked.Also check all valves are fully open and if possible check if there are any restrictions at the valves. Failing all that and the taps are in good order it is possible to fit a pump before the boiler but this may only be a temporary fix overall.

A/C blowing hot air on 2002 Ford ZX2


first id check see if hoses where it connects have oily residue on them , if yes then o-rings/hoses are leaking and need replaced, usually compressor wont kick on if low refrigerant.
also check fuse box, sometimes a fuse will blow, need replaced , kind of rare but happens. might also look aaat where there are high/low pressure sensors screwed into condensor by firewall , passenger side usually. use a small wrench and tap very lightly and them sometimes very rarely they stick. if so id replace.

Flashing red light on Worcester 24i junior combi boiler


Pressure is ok? at 1 bar or above
I think on this one there should be a reset button [red] on the left hand top of the casing - or lower the control panel [ phillips screw on each side] and the button is on the left of the base plate. Press this and try the heating.or hot tap
P.S. if you're on a prepayment meter check you have gas.
