  1. First, make sure that your cold water valve, behind the washing machine, is turned on, and water is coming out.
  2. If there is water coming from the cold water valve, this water goes to another valve inside of the washing machine. Open your washing machine and take out the Diagnosis Manual (usually found in the top portion of the machine with the computer boards, or on the back panel)
  3. Diagnose the Water Inlet Valves per the instructions in the Manual.

What does "EFO" stand for? It keeps blinking on my washer


EF0

displays due to washer over-sudsing or due to washer not filling with

Hot

water.

Causes for washer over-sudsing

:

Not using High Efficiency (HE) detergent.

Too much detergent was added.

Using too much 2X or 3X HE detergent

Solutions for over-sudsing

:

Always use HE detergent in an HE washer. It is formulated to be a low-sudsing detergent and made especially for HE washers.

Be sure to use the correct amount of detergent. HE washers require only a small amount of detergent.

Note

: This amount may need to be adjusted for water hardness, load size, and soil level.

If using a 2X or 3X concentrated HE detergent, much less detergent is needed. If suds are seen, reduce the amount used.

If using a water softener, less detergent.

Solutions for Hot water not entering the machine are

:

Make sure both Hot to Cold water hoses are connected properly at the faucets and at the washer.

Fill hoses are usually color coded, blue for cold and red for hot.

Verify that the hot water inlet hose is connected to the hot water faucet.

Verify that the cold water inlet hose is connected to the cold water faucet.

Verify that the hot water inlet hose is connected to the back of the washer into the hot water inlet port.

The inlet port is usually labeled with (H) or (HOT).

Verify that the cold water inlet hose is connected to the back of the washer into the cold water inlet port. This inlet port is usually labeled with (C) or(COLD).
hope this was some help,all the best.

How do I get hot washter


The problem with getting hot water to today's modern washers is really an old problem. In the days of the old top loader that used 20-25 gallons per load, hot water washing was fine. Today's washers only use 4-8 gallons of water. And they bring the water in not in one spurt, but often in short, cyclic bursts while tumbling the clothes to get them uniformly wet. The problem is in the water lines themselves. Water lines are typically uninsulated, and the water between the hot water heater and the washer will cool rapidly when sitting still, especially if the water lines run in a concrete slab or in a crawl space under a house. If may take 2-3 gallons of water before the water gets really hot. Add to that the fact that we have been conditioned to turn our water heaters down to 120F or less and you'll find that HOT water in the washer is barely tepid. Use of a tankless hot water heater at the washer is the best solution, but can be costly to install.

Hi I have a problem with my Kenmore washing machine,in particular I can not use hot water anymore. When I use my washing machine hot water does not stop at set water filling level (law, medium,high)...


Please post the model number for your washer. It sounds like your hot water valve has failed and is not closing. Unplug your washer's power cord and turn the hot water spigot that comes out of the wall on. If you still get water filling your washing machine, it's definitely the washer's valve and you will need to install a new set (hot and cold valves are both part of the same assembly).

My front loading washer always fills with water when i am not using it


It sounds like one of the automatic water fill valves in the machine is leaking water when washer is off and the valves are closed. There are two manual water supply valves at the wall behind the washer, one for hot water and one for cold. Close the manual hot water supply valve and allow the washer to sit and see if it fills with water. If it does fill, then the cold water automatic fill valve is leaking. If not, then open the hot water manual supply valve and close the cold water manual supply valve. Allow the washer to sit again and see if it fills. If it does then the hot water automatic fill valve is leaking. Replace the leaking valve in your washer. You can order the new valve online using washer brand and model number on a appliance parts web store, or maybe even find it at a local appliance parts store.
