Hi Mark,just read your posting.1st turn the cold tap off and remove the cold inlet hose at the machine end.Check the water valve filter and see if it is blocked.If it is, clean it with a small brush and refit the hose.Do the same for the tap end and check for blockages.After you have refitted hoses and turned the water back on try a cycle.If the problem still exists then you have a faulty cold water valve.Please reply on how you got on and please supply the model number which is on a sticker on the back of the machine, top right.Looking forward to your reply.

LG WF-T653a - The cold water only dribbles out when trying to fill the tub, (the hot water comes out fast) which causes an IE error constantly stopping the machine. Any ideas what I can do, please?


You may need a new inlet water solenoid. But first check the small gauze filter in the cold water inlet connection. They can get blocked.

What would cause a GE Harmony washer to fill too slowly? The water in cold water wash cycle literally just dribbles into the tub.


The filler hose has a wire mesh filter in it to keep the inlet water from passing particles that would keep the solenoid valve from closing completely. Shut off the water and take the hose off from both the faucet and the washer. clean the screen and check the one in the washer too.

Water for intial fill works fine . when it goes to rinse cycle the water just dribbles in making wash time go on for ever ! whats the solution?


when you start the washer set it just on cold and see if it fills slowly,when the washer goes to rinse it just uses cold water,you could have a problem with the washer or in the house,when you run it on just cold and if it dribbles in,stop it shut down the water going to the washer,remove the cold water hose from the back of the washer,stick it in the sink or inside the washer and turn it on,if it comes out strong then you have a bad water valve on the washer,if it comes out slowly you have a bad water valve in the house and it's not the washer.hope this helps

Hoover 700l Cold water is not fillingproperly. Only a verey small dribble comes into the machine. I have reversed the hot and cold hoses, making sure that the setting is on "hot". Problem...


Clogged screen in fill valve on cold side. Remove hose from cold side on valve. Pull screen out. Wash under hot water, and re-install.

Problem: the cold water just dribbles out when filling the tank and it takes forever to fill the tub.no problem with the hot water flow.


If you have water pressure to the cold inlet valve and the valve's filter is clear, you probably have a failed inlet valve...Replacing the cold valve should fix the problem..Not a big or expensive job..Good luck....Nomess

Kenmore washing machine does't fill with water only dribbles


Try disconnecting the hoses from the rear of the machine and see if the screen filters are clogged up and also make sure that their is plenty of preasure and volume of water when you turn on the hoses unhooked directed into ther drain. This is likely your problem as it is unlikely both the hot and cold fill valves went or bad out at the same time.
