On your machine when you select cold, the hot water valve will open automatically letting cold water thru it.can you connect the hot hose up to a tap to stop the water leaking out? or you can buy a screw on plug from a hardware shop that will cap off the valve at the machine or the hose. sometimes to save a customer money i connect their hot hose to the hot valve then fold the hot hose in half and tape it in that position . this stops the water. hope this helps. please reply for further help if you need it

Error code of NF (no fill) on samsung top load washer (WA422PRHDWR/AA) even after checking lines for restrictions and ensuring clean line filters (red and blue). Now, when it does work, it will only do a...


Put the temp select switch on HOT, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. If there is water flow switch to COLD, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount should be approximately equal or slightly more than flow on HOT. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. Move selector to WARM, start machine. Now there should be twice the flow of water than there was with HOT and COLD temps. I suspect it is the HOT side of inlet water valve that has failed because machines usually rinse with COLD water.

Ok - your code is 50 indictes a faulty hot water valve - question - have connected the hoses correctly - as per your descriptions - it should always be cold 1st then hot water- cold - then hot etc until it fills.

Pays to check this as the fault code is totally opposite to what your saying..

The machine is not taking in water it is ahotpoint washer / dryer wdl520 7 kg


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

Washer Fills HOT WATER ONLY


If you checked the screens at the water inlet valve and they were not clogged, then you probably have a defective water inlet valve and will have to replace it. Hope this helped.

Cold water will not fill in Kenmore top load washer


The problem is most likely the cold water adapter. There is a wire harness that connects to it to tell it when to turn on the water. That part is not functioning properly anymore and that is why it is humming when it tries to work. Cheap part and it can be bought at any appliance repair shop. When you take off the back panel you will see what I am talking about. I used to work for Sears as an appliance repair man and I saw this problem a lot with Kenmore washers. It's easy to fix and not very expensive. Let me know if you have any other questions.
