Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Water is not entering via the filling hoses. Have checked power, the filters and the spin cycle part of the program is still working. The water taps are straight and flowing water when not connected to machine so the only problem is the washing cycle won't begin because water not entering. Before this problem the machine had worked perfectly for 16 years. Is there a simple solution?

The simple solution we know is checking first to make sure the harness connection between the timer and the water inlet valve solenoids is intact and that there's power going to it. The next thing you should do is check whether the inlet valves are working or not by connecting the solenoid coils with a cheater cord and plugging it to a 120 VAC power source. The valves are definitely not working and must be replaced if no water flows in. Otherwise, the timer is not working to power up the solenoids and open the inlet valves. Recheck the connections and replace the timer as necessary.

Indicate the make and the exact model number of the machine should you need further assistance.

Water fills 20" on was cycle, rinse cycle fills 8". Clothes coming out soapy or really wet


it indicates that the pump is not getting power when on the spin cycle
it could be a blocked hose to the pump, faulty pump( obstruction in impeller of pump) or failed program board not connecting the spin cycle to the pump and water control solenoid.
best have a service technician check it out.

Hi my hotpoint ultima wmd960 of 2 half years,when i put a wash on it starts and fills up for about 3 mins later it comes up :no water, check supply, then starts ti drain water away ,then fills up again,so...


Please check your inlet water hose for any clogging that may be stopping the proper flow. some machines are programmed to get filled in particular given interval of time. they need proper pressure to properly work. Remove the hose and clean the wire mesh filter.

Kenmore model 110.92292100 will not allow cold water to enter the system


If the cold water solenoid is not working properly it will not open to allow cold water into the mix. Check it out - they often get stuck.

Agitator won't spin during wash/rinse cycle. It's


Hi,

There could be several reasons for washer not to fill .Fill washer with water and wait for the timer to get to the drain mode.Unplug the washer from the electric outlet.Open the case, and disconnect the water hose from the outlet of the water pump.If you get water pouring out from the pump, then plug that up and check the hose to the sewer. If that is clogged, then you have found the problem.Some washers have a self cleaning filter in that hose somewhere. Check that to be sure it is working properly.Reassemble hose from step 3.Plug washer back in. If it pumps out now, then you are done. If it doesn't, then the water pump is probably defective, so replace it.

My washing machine is not changing cycles. It fills, drains and refills. It sat unused for 1 year. 12 months ago it was working fine.


Hi there. I can help you.

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:


  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. If this is the case, turn off the water and remove the hoses. Check both hoses to be sure the filter screens are not clogged with crud and that the hoses aren't kinked.

Water runs through entire cycle until spin mode


Check the plastice hose going to the water level switch. It is pinched, or has a hole in it.
Repair or replace the plastic hose.

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

E23 indicates Drain pump faulty; Wiring faulty; PCB faulty.

The service information also says it should stop with the door open.



Unplug the appliance and manually remove the water via the filter or front drain point if it's fitted.

Drain it into a shallow dish, tighten the filter when you need to stop the water (or plug the hose if draining via a hose) while you empty the container.



Once empty, try the door again.

Take the filter out and clean out any debris in it.

Plug the appliance in and put the machine on a drain programe.

Listen/look at the open filter to check that the drain pump is running.
