Do you mean the source of the water (value) or a fill value that is located in the washer? Thank you John Solution #1 posted on Apr 18, 2008

Is this happening after it has not been used for a while. If so you have a fill valve slowly bleeding some water in. Almost like a dripping faucet. The only way to fix it is to replace the valve. If you want to check it turn the breaker off to the unit when not in use to see if if still fills up. If so you know it would have to be the valve.

Hello Marjorie, thank you for your post!

From the information you have provided water will fill, drain and spin but your Frigidaire washer is not agitating. This could be a problem with your motor, belt, or pulley. Locating the problem is not a simple DIY job and I would suggest seeking assistance from a professional. They have the appropriate tools needed to disassemble your washer and prevent any future issues. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

Washing maching wont spin out comes up e10

Hi Noeline, this is JK. Thank you for your post. I understand that you are receiving error E10 on your washer. This error means that the fill time is too long. Make sure that the washer has adequate water supply, check the faucets to make sure they are fully open on both hot and cold and make sure that the water pressure is above 30 psi. If these suggestions pan out there could be something going on with the pressure switch/sensor, main control board or the inlet valve assembly and may require a professional to diagnose.
Hope this helps!

Washer only fills with water

Good Afternoon Thomas, thank you for your post!

I understand your washer only fills with water. Do you mean the washer fills but then it stops operating, doesn't spin, doesn't spin, or fills with only hot or cold water? If you could elaborate on the model number and exactly what is not working on your appliance, I will be better able to assist you.

In the meantime, if your washer is in fact only filling with water but not functioning in any other way; disconnect power from your washing machine for roughly two minutes. Confirm that the door is securely latched and select a cycle. If the issue continues, it could be number of other underlying causes - it would be advisable to contact an experienced appliance repair tech to assist further.

Best regards!

Washer filled up water but wont anything

I know this is a stupid response, but did you try the electrical connection, should have between 108- 125 volts a/c.
The next issue might be in the timer control. Some of these are mechanical, others are electronic. Sorry that's the best I do from this side of the monitor.

If the cycle won't complete then either it's a problem with the timer or a cold-water supply problem:-

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.

My Whirlpool Duet Washer that is 5 years old all is having a problem......after a was cycle the tub continues to slow fill with water. I have noticed that there is a slow to medium drip coming from the...

The problem is commonly caused by either a pressure switch malfunction, or a bad water inlet valve. The way you can tell is to leave the water turned on and unplug the washer. If the water continues to flow, the problem is the water inlet valve. If the water stops, the pressure switch.

To access either component, you need to remove the top panel of the washer. Locate the three screws that hold the top panel in place and remove. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off. The water inlet valve will be loacted in the left rear of the washer (as viewed from the front). The pressure switch will be in the rear on the right.

To replace the water inlet valve, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer.

2. Turn off the water source and disconnect the fill hoses from the back of the washer.

3. With the top panel removed, disconnect the dispenser hose(s) and electrical connections to the valve.

4. Remove any mounting screws holding the valve in place and reinstall with a replacement valve.

The pressure switch is even easier. One connector plug and an air hose is the only thing attached to the switch. The switch is usually snapped in place along the interior cabinet wall with no screws holding it in place.

If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the part numbers are as follows:

Water Inlet Valve: 8181694
Pressure Switch: 8181695

I hope I've given you enough ideas to work with in narrowing down the cause of your symptoms. This is generally a very simple repair, that isn't very expensive. Any replacement parts can be purchased on line at the following websites:

All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best price.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Running a clean cycle will not correct this problem as the source of the problem is BEFORE the washer. The clean cycle will cure many problems in the washer drum, front dispenser and drainage system.

Response to suggestion.

I was talking about the water inlet line going to the fill valve. The fill valve is located on the right hand side with the bottom panel removed. From the fill valve there is a water inlet line running into the SIDE of the dishwasher tub, NOT the pump in the back. The two pumps on the dishwasher are used for the cycling of wash water and/or draining the tub. Neither pump are used for the FILL cycle. Having an inlet line under the kitchen sink would make things easier. CLR would probably do the trick, but I'm afraid that gravity is going to keep you from accomplishing what you need to do.
