SOURCE: water filling issue

It sounds like you have a faulty Out of Balance Micro switch(the machine now thinks it's always out of balance) you'll find this under the motor controller module (main computer module) in the top of the machine on the righthand side. Anymore questions feel free to ask. cheers

SOURCE: Washing machine wont work at all

Obviously the first thing to check is that the socket is supplying power by plugging another appliance in such as a lamp. It is less likely to be the socket but you'd be daft not to check it out before calling an engineer as it does occasionally turn out to be a faulty wall socket. This is only necessary though if there are no led indicator lights lit up on your washer as any light that's on shows that the machine is getting a live and neutral supply from the socket.
The second thing to check is the fuse in the plug. Either put the fuse into something else and check the appliance still works or try another fuse that you know to be OK in the washer. Make sure you use a 13 amp fuse and never by-pass a fuse! If both of those are OK, then the most common cause for a washing machine that wont start is the door interlock, particularly if the mains lights on the washing machine has come on, but nothing works. However, the fault could also be in wiring to the door interlock or even the door catch not activating it properly, or the on off switch or the main control module. With some Indesit and Hotpoint washing machines even an open circuit heater or motor can cause the entire washing machine to stop working except the led lights.
You need to know what you are doing to trace this type of fault so if it isn't the wall socket or the plug you'd be better getting an engineer to trace it. Do not work on a live washing machine. Engineers should use a continuity test meter to trace faults with the washing machine unplugged and never test with a live washing machine.

SOURCE: No water flow on Fisher and Paykel smartdrive 708 washing machine

Take the lid off,just open it & pull it straight up.There should be a little red button that the lid strikes against unless its a different model,in that case it has a magnetic reed switch under the right hand side of the hob.press this red switch instead of closeing lid,see if it fill with no problem.the lid may not be making good contact with switch..if thats not it then it may be the inlet valve..then you can try the hot,if theres no problem with hot then its the cold valve.

My idesit IWB5113 just keeps filling after starting the wash cycle, normal it inject some water then starts washing, my machine just keeps filling and doesn't seem to start the wash cycle, please help


It is possible that the water level sensor has failed and so does not detect to stop the inlet valve from filling.You can remove and check this level sensor normally it can be a damaged diaphragm and replace the same so that the program proceeds to the next stage to start the machinetips to see working of the machine;http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1392/how-a-washing-machine-works.html

Kenmore elite quietpak2 the when washing machine is not in use the drum fills with water. It flooded part of the garage


You have a bad water valve. The water valve is located where the hot and cold water hoses hook to the washer.Sometimes if your lucky you can take apart the valve and clean it and get it to work. It's worth a try if it doesn't work then you will have to buy a new valve.Hope this helped and thank you for using FIX ya.

No water pressure on fill.


Hi, If you have checked the screens in the mixer valve and there is nothing plugging it, then it is most likely the mixer valve.
I hope this helps. Please let me know and feel free to rate my response to you.
