Hi just read your posting.Now just to confirm the model number,Is it GW601 or MW601?Now have you tried a hot fill and a cold fill and a warm fill?Have you removed the inlet hoses at the machine end and checked to see if water comes out of both hoses?Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure I can track down this fault for you.Looking forward to your reply.

My siemens xlm 1400 wont fill with water so when it spins clothes are not cleaned.It won't drain properly either. It sees to only fill 10% of the water required. I have checked the pipes/hoses - a

I would take the back off and look for a small 5mm pipe leading upwards from the base of the drum and take it off and blow gently into it you should hear a click and one when you release the air if so then the place where you took the pipe from is blocked clean it out with a pipe cleaner or metal rod and replace the pipe as sometimes this pipe gets blocked with soap goo preventing the water sensor from doing its job eric

Ok first. unplug the washer and with the hot & cold water valve on at the wall ((Does the water still fill )) If the answere is yes then the water valve is stuck open and you will need to replace it. Shut the water back off and get the valve replaced.

If the answere is there is no, and there is no water coming in with the machine unpluged then you need to inspect the water level switch and the water level hose that goes from the water level switch to the bottom of the tub, make sure the hose is connected in both ends.

drain the tub of water pull the hose from the water level switch and blow through it to make sure it is clear then reattach and try the cycle on a low level setting.

if this does not fix your problem then you might have a bad water level switch.

Maytag pav2300 wont stop filling up. New timer

After the water fill, Switch off the mains, allow little water bleed through the hose that goes to the level switch. As the water flows try fixing into the level switch block.

Clean the water drips to dry and switch on the m/c. It should be alright since you say that the switch is OK when air is blowed!

Fisher & paykel smart drive 601, power to board, won't fill

If it isn/t doing anything at all it could be a faulty start switch on the display panel. Also make sure you can hear an audible click when you open and close the lid. The lid switch on a 601 is actuated on the right hand back of lid adjust as required. Hope this helps.

Washing machine won't stop filling--is the WLC defective?

The 3 likeliest causes of your problem are:
  1. Bad pressure switch (water level control)-It may react to your straw but the range it finally kicks off is higher than the highest possible water level.
  2. Bad sensing line-The plastic tube may have a pinhole leak caused by abrasion while your suspension system was out of order or it may just leak out the air. Place a small screw operated hose clamp on the hose where it attaches to the pressure switch. Place a finger over one end of the plastic hose and blow in the other as you submerge the hose under water to check for leaks. Replace if necessary.
  3. Clogged reservoir at tub end of sensing line-clean out with thin blade screwdriver. Sometimes grease or undissolved detergent accumulates in this area and blocks the pressure from sending a proper signal.
One of the above three should resolve your problem. Obviously, replace the pressure switch as a last resort after checking steps 2 and 3.

Good Luck
