It may be that it is airlocked the one way to check this is to take water pipe off valve remove 2 screws in valve then about 4 screws in the plastic panel by valve and prise out from body.just beside the valve is a small pink pipe with a bung in it remove this and you should see water, let it out onto a towel only a small amount normally.then put back as you found it and panel etc.Try again and see if water comes into unit.If not then you need to remove the front plastic base under door 2 screws with door down.Then a steel plate behind that remove 2screws.shine a torch and locate the pressure switch on L.H.S. make sure power off now remove small plastic pipe from switch then put back on then try again.If no joy then the pressure switch is at fault.

Good Luck.

Not leting water in on modelsyo424a

Have you checked the water valve solenoid with a volt meter to make sure your getting power applied when calling for a fill cycle? if you are getting power and you can hear the water valve make and not getting water into the sump tray then have you checked the water filter? Make sure water supply line is not kinked and you are getting water to the valve.

Washer will not fill

Hello there and welcome to fixya
i need to ask a few questions have you made sure that you have good water pressure to the machine first then if so make sure you have inspected the screen going into the machine if this is clean you may have either a faulty inlet valve or a faulty solinod switch
There are two wires connected to each solenoid (aka coil) on the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip-on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

Use a continuity tester or multitester to test for continuity. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. A reading of infinity indicates a bad solenoid that must be replaced. Different brands and models will have various measurements, but the valve should show some resistance if it is functioning properly. Test the second one in the same way as the first.
If the solenoid is working properly, but water leaks through the valve even when the washer is off, then the valve itself is the problem. Debris may be preventing the valve from closing. If the valve cannot be cleaned, it will have to be replaced. The valve can also fail mechanically. So even if it passes the electrical test, it may still require replacement. If you have ruled out all other possibilities, go ahead and replace the valve.

Fills with water but wont stop filling and wont change to different cycle just keeps filling

check water pressure, it need to be about 20psi. also remove fill hoses and check the screens for dirt. clean it if necesary. also check water valve at fill hose connection. it has screens also. clean if needed. if all is ok then replace water valve.

The water to the icemaker just keeps flowing

It sounds like your solinode valve has stuck open and may need to be replaced. the valve is located in the back of the refrigerator on the bottom. follow the water line to it. shut off the water supply to the refrigerator unit unit is repaired.

I have a Kenmore Heavy Duty 70 series washer older model. It will not alow cold water to fill washer. Tried warm and hot water only fills the tank. Hot water will fill fine with no problem.

shut the house water valve off,take off the cold water line on the back of the washer and stick it in the tub of the washer,have someone hold the hose and turn on the cold water valve,if water comes out then you need to change out the water valve on the washer,if no water comes out then you have a problem with the house water valve.there are screens in the valves see if you canpop out the screen and clean it out and put it back into the valve,you can try that but sediment could have went through the screen and damaged the valve,if so change it time send the model number and i can give you part numbers,let me know what you find

Not getting any cold water just hot

In most cases the water valve is bad. First check that the supply water valve is on. if you have a water selector switch you should start filling water and move the switch to see if it changes the water fill rate. if it does then i would change the water fill valve.

I think my Whirlpool French door (freezer on bottom) is leaking underneath. I have checked the water lines on the outside and looked underneath and nothing. When I moved the fridge there was a film of...

check to make sure that the condensation pan is in its correct position,, somtimes when the unit is moved up steps it causes the pan to sit in there cocked or unlevel and will drain out excessively. or it may be a crack on the fill valve solinod where the water line connects to the fridge.. there will be a blue plasitc cover right where the water line connects to the frig and somtimes they crack and will only leak when the ice maker calls for water... pull out the frig and empty the ice tray and when you here it start to fill up the icemaker check around that solinoed be sure to use a bright flash light because sometimes the leak will be a little stream of water that is really hard to see sometimes you can only feel it with your fingers...I hope this helps......

Fills with water when not in use.

Hi, If the washer fills up when off, you will need to change the inlet mixer valve. Do you have to shut the water source valve off to keep it from filling up?
Please let me know so I can assist you further.

Did you check the simple things first?
Often, one of (up to) three screens are in line with both water feeds; one at each end of the connecting hose, still another at the input to the control valve.
