Sounds like 2 different problems going on there.check that the cold water is on.replace the cold valve..The pump is more than likely blocked or needs replacing.

My Front Loader washer will not fill with water, It makes the sound but water does not go into the machine. I was having a problem with the washer pausing itself continously and then making draining...


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 to confirm that it is not something else ;-0(
Good luck,

I have two questions regarding my washer. Q1) What do you think the problem is when the water selection is on cold only, or warm and cold, or the hot and cold, barely any water gets inside the washer even...


chnage the water valve for the water problem and if it doesn't drain you could have a bad lid switch or something going on with the pump,something could be stuck in it or it's bad.open and close the lid down if you don't hear a clicking sound it's broke or stick a screw driver into the hole that the lid switch closes into,keep the washer in spin and see if it drains when you push the screw driver down in the hole

My Whirlpool Duet ht Washer starts washing fine, it drains then it starts flashing FH and wont take in water for the rinse cycle. It does this for every cycle, it will wash fine but after it drains and is...


The first thing I would check is shut off the cold water valve at the wall and remove the hose at the washer.carefully pry out the little screen in the inlet and clean well,reconnect hose and turn water back on FH is a water inlet issue I am hoping that what is happening is that when the washer starts its wash cycle it is probably filling with warm (hot) and cold water at the same time even though it might be mostly hot,but when it comes time to rinse (cold water ) there is not enough to make the computer happy and you get your FH error.. Hope this Helps,,If not your probley looking at a new fill valve assy

Do we need a Y connector for our combo washer dryer. We just have one tap in the kitchen sink


If you use a Y connector to provide water to the washer it will not be able to use different water temperatures. The water temperature at both the cold and hot inputs will be whatever comes out of the tap. The washer controls cold and hot inputs separately to change teh water temperature in the machine. A Y tap will only provide one temperature (whatever the tap is set to provide) to both inputs. If the tap is a faucet you could control the temperatures manually but the machine needs to have a water supply at both of its inputs.

When you start a cycle, a small amount of water will run into the washer and it will sit and do nothing then the pause button flashes. But it will not finish a load even if you continue to hit the pause...


The temperature of the incoming water determines the temperature of the water in your washer. You get either hot, cold, or a mix of the hot and cold water that's currently available to the machine. So if the cold water that enters the machine is very cold--or if the hot water entering the machine is very hot--the warm water is affected.

If you live in a Northern climate, unless you adjust the hot and cold water taps that supply water to your washer, the warm water supplied to your washer is usually hotter during the summer months and colder during the winter months.

Pulsating water in the hot water cycle


id be curious as to the age of this machine, because the newer models have what teh call adaptive water temp sensors that will optimize the water temp automatically.. your hot water may be "too hot" and your cold can be "too cold" and the valve corrects to a preset temp. this sounds like whats happening
