Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washer modelWBVH6240 less than 1 year old. Hoses are connected, water is on, electric is on. When you turn on the washer the water does not come into the washer. It clicks about 4 times, makes noises as if it is going to rotate and nothing happens. The timer does stay on and the minutes keep on decreasing.

    Check first is the pump motor starts, if it does not , then test the motor, and check if it works.
    If the motor works , and you do not have any lose hose (in this case you would have water coming out), then it is the timer control panel.
    To get the replacement contact an authorized retailer

    Here is the picture of the pump for your model from allpar.com:



    Open Allpar website and follow the procedure to check and eventually replace the pump.
    Be careful in diagnosing the problem, as in this case you usually have also good chances that is a broken timer.
    Be sure the pump is not working before replacing it.
    In case you do not have experience in repairing large appliances call a repairman, servicing a washer without right knowledge involves risks for your personal safety.

    If you do not know how to test and repair the pump is better to call a serviceman. Here is a general procedure to repair a faulty pump.
    If the problem is the pump a repair may cost around $ 250 ( part is $170) If it is the timeline clock it will be around $180/200 (part $80).
    Let me know your location to get contact for a service in your area, or contact Manufacturer.

    Regards

I am having difficulties replacing the water valve on my maytag top load washer, model mav208daww. How do I get to it?


Hi.

Disconnect power cord or trip circuit breaker. Unplug the water hoses after turning off the water supply. Using a screwdriver, release and lift up the washer top panel. Using needle nose pliers, disconnect the wires from the old valve, and undo the hose that feeds water into the tub. From the back of the washer, I undo the screw holding the valve in place. Remove the old valve. Connect electrical wires and hose to the new inlet valve before installing the valve. Screw the valve back in place and reattach the hot and cold water hoses, close the top of the washer, turn on the water supply, and connect power back.

Below a diagram. The valve is part 14. Click on the picture to enlarge.

Cold water trickles into the tub while it is being filled up


The hot and cold water supply hoses that connect the washer from the water supply faucets on the wall to the water connections on the back of the clothes washer usually have filter / sediment screens within there connection fittings at the end of the hoses, these will collect dirt,sand, calcium deposits, etc.,when they trap enough of these materials they will plug up and restrict the flow of water into the clothes washer. Turn off the water faucets at the wall, and you should do this for both hot and cold hoses, disconnect the hoses from the washer and the water faucets, look into the hose ends and pull out the screens and clean them out by running water and what ever you can use to clean them completely!!!!!
Now look inside the water connections on the back of the clothes washer,where you screw the hoses on the washer, and check to see if there are filter screens in there, if there is, remove them and clean out completely also, then reverse the removal process and reconnect the hoses, makeing sure to connect the hot and cold hoses to the right connection on the back of the clothes washer!!
Try filling the washer with water to see if you have corrected the problem.
Make sure hot and cold hoses are correct on the back of the washer!!!!
GOOD LUCK !!!!!!

Hot water connected but does not fill into the drum? The machine will provide us with a cold wash but on the warm and hot settings the hot water dies not pull through the connection


Turn off the water valves which supply the water to washer hoses. Switch the hot and cold water supply hoses and tighten. Turn the water valves back on and try to run a wash cycle using cold. If hot water only is entering the wash tub the water supply is ok. If this is the case you can unplug the washer and turn off the water valves. Remove the washer back cover and follow the water connection for the hot water. The water solenoid valve will have two electrical wires connected to it. Interchange the hot water solenoid wires with the cold water solenoid connection. Connect the water supply hoses hot to hot and cold to cold then plug the unit then test the washer on the cold wash. If the problem persists it could be a water hose restriction or the timer circuit could be defective. If you have hot water at the normal pressure purchase a new hot water solenoid valve. With the electrical cord unplugged be sure to restore the correct wire connections on the hot and cold water solenoid. To replace the hot water solenoid remove the hose clamp and hose to replace the old valve. Connect the unit to the water and electrical outlet. Turn on the water and test the unit for leaks being careful not to touch any electrical and moving parts. If all checks ok and the correct temperature work, unplug the unit and reassemble.

It is leaking under the washer tub


Hi,

Leaking water from a washing machine usually comes from hoses or connections. Be sure that water appearing to be a

leak isn’t drain water from a backed-up standpipe. To prevent potential flood damage, which can occur if washing

machine supply hoses burst, be sure to install “no-burst” stainless-steel mesh hoses and lever-type shutoff valves,

as shown below. With these, you can easily turn off the levers for both hot and cold water between wash days.


1) Check the fittings where the hoses connect to the faucets and to the back of the washing machine. Also look for

worn or leaky hoses. Tighten couplings or hose clamps if needed, or replace the hoses altogether. Be sure to turn

the water off before removing the hoses, and drain them into a bucket after disconnecting them.

2) Determine whether the machine is oversudsing, which can cause the machine to overflow. Reduce suds by pouring 1/2

cup white vinegar in 1 quart water into the washer. Then switch to either less detergent or a low-sudsing variety.

3) The machine may have a faulty basket gasket or tub seal and bearing that must be replaced; in this case, call an

appliance repairperson.

Water remains in the washer. Spin cycle does not work. Unit less than one year old. Model ATF6000FS1


The problem is probably the pump being clogged with an object. Typically it is a coin.
Remove the front bottom cover to access the pump. Remove the two hoses. Make sure you have a pan to catch the water from the hoses. You will be able to remove the objects after the hoses are removed.
