You have to check and see iff water inlet valve is ok did it stop on hot and cold at the same time
you need to power machine up and if you have a power meter see if you have power at water valves
if not valves are ok
maybe you have a fuse or faulty lid switch on your machine
check that out

Mains off the wall, unplug. Shut your wall faucet and disconnect your hoses coming to the machine - at the machine end. Get an old tooth brush to clear out the dirt which may be blocking your inlet valve. If possible gently pry off the fine filters to clean well. Re-insert the filters carefully and re-connect, the hoses. Things shd be okay. Otherwise you just hv to change your inlet valve.

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
An IE error code will appear if the washer has not filled with water in approximately 8 minutes. If an IE error code appears on the washer, check to make sure both hot and cold-water taps are open completely. After both valves have been opened, unplug the washer for 10 seconds and retry the wash cycle.
There are filters on the inlet hose connections of the washing machine. They are intended to filter away mineral deposits from hard water and other debris from getting into the unit. If clogged, water will not flow through these filters into the washer. Turn off both the hot and cold water taps, disconnect the inlet hoses from the back of the washing machine, and clean the inlet filters gently but thoroughly.
If the inlet hoses are not attached to the machine correctly, it will prevent proper water flow to the washer. Turn off the hot and cold water supply then disconnect and reconnect the inlet hoses. Ensure that they are threaded properly. After the hoses have been reconnected, open the water taps completely, check for leaks, and unplug the washer for 10 seconds and retry the wash cycle.
And finely if all of this does not work then the inlet valve on the machine needs to be replaced ok?
Hope this all helps

Cold water tricles in . no normal flow does the washer valve need to be replaced

There are debri screens in many styles of washer fill hoses that can block up. And the end that connects to the back of your machine also has a reachable screen filter up inside the water valve inlet that can also block up.

Disconnect the water fill hose at the machine and check screens ... clean or replace if needed.

The screen are usually attached to the hose washer and will pop out manually with a small screwdriver or knife. Then turn the water valve on with the free end of the hose aimed into your washer tub to make sure you have free water flow from the faucet to the water valve. If all screens are clean and clear but still no water pressure going into the washer after reconnecting your hoses then you can suspect the water valve inlet assembly.

My washer gives an nF code. I have disconnected the hoses and cleaned the screens and hoses. Still get error. I believe it is clogged where the hose enters the washer at the inlet valves. How do I remove...

Hello,The "nf" code is a "no-fill" fault. This indicates that your washing is not getting water supplied to it, or the pressure isn't substantial enough to complete a fill. You need to, first, make sure the water supply is turned on. Second, if the water IS turned on, and you're still not getting anything to your washer, you may have a fill valve problem. The fill valve is what both your hoses connect to on the back of the machine. It can become clogged with sediment over time (especially, if you have hard water or well water). Turn the water supply off and remove both hoses from the back of the washer. Check both these hose connections for clogs in the filter screens. If they are clear, then more than likely the fill valve has gone bad.

My washer will not fill. When I start a cycle, the pump starts running, but just keeps running continuously. I cleaned out the pump filter, and I ran the pump out of its housing, and it was clear that...


If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes the water valves turn off.

4 minutes later the “F/21” error code will be displayed. Press

1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure
the pump is running.
4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.

The water just trikles in when it is filling the washer. Our water works fine

Sounds to me that the screen is plugged in the hose were it connects to the faucet. Remove both the hoses and remove the screens within the hose.

Slow Cold Water Fill

There is possibly a filter screen in the hoses as well as the water valve.Check the hoses for screens.Occasionally the water valve will deteriorate inside and must be replaced.
I am on a water well and have the same problem. This weekend I installed a inline filter purchased from Lowes. It has stopped the sand and silt problem. You will have to buy one extra water hose to do this yourself.

I have a whirlpool front load washing machine model WFW8300SW00

Hay Crab.
what I have found is that the washer thinks it is not pumping out .. if your drain pump is clearly removing the all the water in a good time... then the problem is your pressure is telling the computer that it still has water in the machine...

replace the pressure switch and it will solve your f21 error.

It is a round unit on the right hand side on top...with a tube and wires going to it...let me know if it helps
