Descale machine before thinking of replacing, it might be cheaper to rebuild unit than replace.

Our water is low pressure and cold. is there a washing machine available that can use low pressure?

Most old style top load washers use a water level sensor, so the water pressure isn't a big deal for them. And the newer ones are more energy efficient.

My kenmore tumble action washer won't spin and I get err20 as well as beeps and blinking control panel lights. The washer is less than 2 years old and is used very little .. we are retired and just 2...

"F20" on display
(Water Inlet Problem-no water or insufficient
water supply) Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle
Unplug washer or disconnect power. Check the following: Are water faucets completely turned on?
Are screens at inlet hose connection to washer
clogged? Are water inlet hoses kinked? Are water inlet hoses frozen?
the water pressure and drain hose have alot to do with your problem. when a washer fills up all it does is opens the water valve. if there is not enough water pressure or the water is not turned on all the way, the flowmeter ( does exactly what the name says) will tell the washer there is not enough water coming to it while the valve is open. the drain hose is important because if it is to low it will syphon the water out of the machine while it is filling. when that happens the pressure switch will read that the water level is not rising and can cause you problem. if the drain hose is sitting all the way down in the drain pipe this will also happen. if the drain hose and water supply are ok i would start looking at the inlet valves please message me back with any further questions and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped when our chat has concluded in full Thanks again Rick

My ten years old Whirlpool AWM285 had a problem

You need to replace the carbon brushes on the motor. If this doesn't work then you will need to replace the motor itself

I don't have enough water pressure to make cofee. Very little water comes out of the shower head. The shower head is clean, it is not plugged. I suspect it is the pump? Please advise

I had the same problem: clean showerhead, machine pumps hot water just fine, but very little brewhead flow. Descale made it worse but that was a big clue! I took apart the brewhead and found grains of scale in the boiler, like pulverized beach shell:
Some of those bits apparently made their way into the three way valve and clogged it. I could not blow air through the channel between the plunger and the boiler. Not surprising: the inlet hole inside the valve is TINY and clogs easily.a0bc8304-2405-4fdb-a444-21cf80e7701a.jpg
Once I got this part cleared up inside (and cleaned out the rest of the scale from my boiler so it didn't immediately re-clog!), my brew flow was restored.

not enough water in machine
do you have hi or low pressure
when machine is washing try adding a extra litre of water manually eg milk bottle or jug
note the sound of washer before and after
if this improves then that is problem

Low water pressure

Take the impellors of (inside machine) and check to see if there is anythig clogging the wholes. Run the machine for a couple of minutes without impellors on and check around the sump and filter.
