Cold water inlet valve failure is a common fault with F&P machines.
Your best course is the call a tech, so that the self diagnosis codes can be entered into the machine. This will confirm the fault, and the work will be covered by a warranty, which will protect you against causing other problems.
Water inlet replacement is not a big job and shouldn't take long to diagnose and fix.
Probably not what you hoped to hear, but your best bet for the long life of the machine.
Good luck....Nomess

ARXF125 FRONT LOADER WASHING MACHINE FLASHING H20 SYMBOL DURING CYCLE


H20 is "no fill" or difficult fill. To test:Put the temp select switch on HOT, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. If there is water flow switch to COLD, restart machine, if necessary. If water comes out check the flow amount should be approximately equal or slightly more than flow on HOT. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. Move selector to WARM, restart machine if necessary. Now there should be twice the flow of water than with just HOT and COLD temps. If all seems good turn off the water supply taps. Loosen the connections at the machine. Wait for the hoses to relax before unscrewing them too far. If they do not relax STOP retighten and let me know. After removing the hoses check the screens condition in the end of valve. Those screens can become fouled with lime and other debris. Use a toothbrush and a spray bottle to remove crud. Hold the end of the hoses over a bucket or in the tub of washer and turn on TAPs to check the pressure, it doesn't have to blast out of there (but it likely will if you turn TAPs too far, so be careful) still it has to be more than a weak flow. If the screens are clean and if there is good flow the water valve should function, if it doesn't it is defective and will need replaced. BUT, before you do that you should try one more thing. Make sure you UNPLUG THE MACHINE FOR THIS! Open the console and disconnect and reconnect every wire connector you see. If a connection doesn't pop right off just give it a good wiggle. The goal here is to verify that connections are good, so reseat what you can and wiggle the rest and give wires that go through plastic connectors a slight push from behind the connector. Then plug the machine back in and give it a try. It's worked for me more than once. Let me know what you find out.

Our machine works fine, but the water just trckles in when it adds water for the rinse cycles. It can take 20 minutes to fill the tub.


Check to see if there's good water volume coming through the hoses attached to the washing machine. If there is, check to see if the screens inside the water-inlet valve are clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If they're clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you should completely replace the valve. Replace the water valve with this part.

Water continues to run into the washing machine through the whole wash cycle and even when the machine is off. I have to keep the tape turned off. other than that the washing machine functions normally.


Hi Welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. You have debris inside your water inlet valve. You can try to clean it by doing the following:

- First remove both hoses from the water inlet valve and remove the inlet screens of the water valve.
(Use a knife blade on the outer part of the screens to remove them from the water valve)
- Connect both hoses to the water inlet valve without the inlet screens.
- Connect ONE hose to the wall faucet
- Place ONE hose in a bucket

SELECT WARM WASH and start wash fill

Water should flow into the washer and the bucket. Use the handle of a screwdriver and tap the hose connections of the inlet water valve for about 20 seconds. (your trying to free the debris from the inlet water valve diaphram)

Stop Fill

Reverse Hose connection at the wall.... i.e. hook up other hose and disconnect the one you had connected. Place the hose you disconnected from the wall into the bucket.

START warm fill

Water should flow into the washer and the bucket. Use the handle of a screwdriver and tap the hose connections of the inlet water valve for about 20 seconds. (your STILL trying to free the debris from the inlet water valve diaphrams)

STOP FILL

- Connect hose to wall connection
- WASH the inlet screens under slowly running water until both sides are clean
- Remove hoses from the water inlet valve and install the inlet screens.
- Reconnect hoses and turn on water supply

TEST HOT and COLD fill

Turn off machine.... IF the debris was freed the water flow will stop when the machine is turned off.

If this flushing attempt does not correct your constant water flow the remedy is to replace the water inlet valve on your washer.

I can help with locating parts ON-Line but will need your model number to help you should you require a water valve.

Hopefully you are able to clear the debris by doing the above. (50 - 50 chance of it working)

Thanks for Choosing FixYa,
Kelly

When i try and start the washer it hums it won't fill it spins just won't fill


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Turn off the water at the wall connection remove the hoses noting the positons of HOT and COLD. Then clean the inlet screens in the water valve. (lift out by using a knife blade on the outside of the screen) Wash the screens by rubbing your fingers ofer them under slow running water then reinstall them.

Before you start try a hot wash.. and then cold wash to see if either has water coming into the machine. If it works there is a way to back flush the water valve using a warm water wash. You remove one hose and stick it in a bucket. Turn ON the other hose and let water flow into the bucket while gentily tapping on the hose connection with a screw driver HANDLE. Reverse hose connections and repeat hose in bucket and tapping on hose connection. Reconnect both hoses then try HOT and COLD wash fill cycles. Let me know what happened.

Kenmore 80 series washing machine - cannot get


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. This sounds like either the hose or the water inlet valve screen is clogged. Possibly the pinhole inthe diaphram itself of the water valve. Here is what you can do.

1. Get a bucket
2. Turn off BOTH water valves at the wall.
3. Remove the HOT water connection at the water valve. Then check the inlet screen for debris. You can remove the screen from the water valve by using a knife blade on the very outside edge of the screen tugging outward. Hold the screen up to the light check it for debris. If it is dirty wash it under a light flow of water in the sink. DO NOT reinstall just screen just yet.
4. Use a measuring cup or something similar to catch water at the water valve HOT connection. Select a WARM wash cycle and start the wash cycle. Let the water flow into what ever it is you use to catch the water exiting the HOT water connection.
Tap on the cold water hose connection to try and free the debris inside the water valve as the water is flowing. Do this a few times until you have let water back flow through the water valve for about 20 seconds.

Machine timer off.

5. Reinstall the inlet screen in the water valve and reconnect the hose. Place the HOT water hose in the bucket and start the WARM fill cycle again. This will flush the hose.

Machine timer off.

6. Reconnect the hose at the wall connection and turn on the water at the wall.

7. Select HOT wash and test water flow. It should by now be (fingers crossed) flowing.

You can repeat the above for the cold water side if you need to.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Kelly

My whirpool aw614 displays FH error display which suggest water inlet probs, clean filters a;though they are spotless, still get same prob, on some programs it will work until it comes to rinse, where it...


Suspect low water flow rate ., check flow rate from main sink tap , when turned on full this should be pretty fierce. Put machine on normal cool wash , when it is taking in cold water through the soap drawer , pull out the drawer a little , the water flow rate should be allmost the same as the tap , if not investigate , fill pipes at rear etc..

Cold water will not stop filling during rinse


while the unit is filling in the warm cycle. reach behind and shut off the hot water tap.I bet the water flow stops filling, if so, you would need to change the inlet valve on the machine. You see, in warm, if the cold is not filling, you still hear the hot filling and the unit will advance. The rinse cycles are mostly "cold" only. if the valve is not opening it will not allow it to advance from the rinse section on the board.

Good luck!
