My new washer keeps giving the message, " no water, open water valves". Well, all the valves are open and correctly connected to cold and hot outlets going into the washer. What could be possibly wrong?

Possible that the water level sensor is not detectingg the level after the set time .It can also be due to slow fill or poor flow.
So check the water level sensor.

How to Check a Washer when Is Not Filling With Water OTHER washers test similiarly
# Test procedures to follow when a GE Hotpoint washer is not filling

* Disconnect the washer from the wall outlet
* Set the timer dial on regular and pull the knob to turn the timer push-pull switch on
* Set the temperature switch to the cold/cold setting
* Open the controls panel to gain access to the water mixing valve solenoids
* Touch the 2 terminals on the cold water solenoid with your volt meter test proves. Make sure that your body don't touch the washer cabinet, this eliminate the chance of getting an electrical shock.
* Have someone plug the washer cord for you while you check the voltage
* The reading should be 120 volts
* Disconnect the washer from the wall outlet
* Touch the 2 terminals on the hot water solenoid with your volt meter test proves. Remember, to keep your body from touching the washer cabinet to eliminate the chance of getting an electrical shock

Have your helper plug in the washer cord again so you could check the voltage at the hot water solenoid

* The reading should be 120 volts. If you get 120 volts, this tells you that the wall outlet, the timer, the water temperature switch cold and hot water settings are working ok.

If the GE Hotpoint washer is not filling, the problem should be on the water valve, the screen filters or the water supply
If one of the solenoids is bad you will need to replace the complete water mixing valve assembly YOU SHOULD ALSO GET AN OHMS READING OR SHOW CONTINUITY WHEN TESTED UNPLUGGED ON BOTH SELINOIDS HOT AND COLD

Cold water isn't coming on, only hot?

Not sure what ur saying have u tried changing the hot cold hoses and see what happens? u may have a bad water inlet valve or a bad water temperature switch? first make sure ur getting hot from the house outlet, u can check with a multi meter for continuity to see if either is out

Why is the hot water pipe dripping after tighening up.

First the is a hot and cold water pipe. To those are connected hot and cold water outlet bib valves to which are connected, respectively, hot and cold water hoses going to (or you could say, coming from) their respective connections to the washer. Correct this if I am wrong but, it appears you might be talking about those hose connections to the water spigots but calling them pipes, not hoses. If that is true, you contecture is correct: it is most typically a worn out hose washer or o-ring and replacing that item should correct any dripping. By sure the part is characterized for hot water.

50. (00110010) Hot Valve Faulty
The Motor Control Module has measured a voltage from the valve diagnostic circuit that
indicates the hot valve is faulty. The most likely cause is that the valve harness has not
been connected correctly or the valve is open circuit. See fault 48 for service procedure.
48. (00110000) Hot and Cold Valve Coil Faulty
The Motor Controller module has measured voltages from the valve diagnostic circuit that
indicate both the hot and cold valves are faulty. The most likely cause is that the valve
harnesses have not been connected correctly or the valve is open circuit.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: Check the valve harnesses are correctly fastened to the valves or the
pins are not bent backwards.
Secondary Source: Water Valves.
Action: Check the valve coils are not faulty (open circuit).
Tertiary Source: Motor Controller module.
Action: Replace the Motor Controller module.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

That's easy to tell- if it has 2 inlet pipe/hose connections at the back (as opposed to the outlet pipe which is permanently connected to the washer and hooks over the outlet drain) then it is a hot and cold fill. If there is only one inlet pipe it is cold fill only. Either type HAS to have a cold fill supply- to lower the temperature of the hot water for cool washes AND for rinsing which is normally cold water only.

If you have only a cold water tap/fawcet available for the washer and it is a hot and cold fill you will need to purchase, from a hardware (?) store, a 'Y' adapter. Upside down the single end (internal thread) screws into the cold water supply and the hot and cold washer pipes screw into the double end (external threads). The washer is fooled into thinking it has hot and cold! When it expects hot, it opens its hot valve but instead gets the cold water and has to heat it up. It will therefore take longer for the machine to do the washing. When it wants cold for rinses, it opens its cold valve and gets the same water! Simple ;-0)

Hope this has clarified!

Hot water connected but does not fill into the drum? The machine will provide us with a cold wash but on the warm and hot settings the hot water dies not pull through the connection

Turn off the water valves which supply the water to washer hoses. Switch the hot and cold water supply hoses and tighten. Turn the water valves back on and try to run a wash cycle using cold. If hot water only is entering the wash tub the water supply is ok. If this is the case you can unplug the washer and turn off the water valves. Remove the washer back cover and follow the water connection for the hot water. The water solenoid valve will have two electrical wires connected to it. Interchange the hot water solenoid wires with the cold water solenoid connection. Connect the water supply hoses hot to hot and cold to cold then plug the unit then test the washer on the cold wash. If the problem persists it could be a water hose restriction or the timer circuit could be defective. If you have hot water at the normal pressure purchase a new hot water solenoid valve. With the electrical cord unplugged be sure to restore the correct wire connections on the hot and cold water solenoid. To replace the hot water solenoid remove the hose clamp and hose to replace the old valve. Connect the unit to the water and electrical outlet. Turn on the water and test the unit for leaks being careful not to touch any electrical and moving parts. If all checks ok and the correct temperature work, unplug the unit and reassemble.

Have a Kenmore 500, top-loading washer-The hot/cold water does not work correctly. Often, it washes it cold, and rinses in hot which is the opposite of what I want it to do. It seems to be realted to the...

It could be as simple as having the water supply hoses switched, that is, the cold and hot water hoses are connected to the opposite inlet connections on the washer.

You can check for this by feeling each hose and seeing which one is getting warm and trace it from the water supply valves to the washer and see if that's the issue.

It the hoses are connected to the proper washer inlets and they are connected to the correct water supply valves, it would appear that the water inlet valve on the washer is faulty and should be replaced.

With the complete model number for your washer, you can locate the replacement part at and order one online as well, if you wish.

The site will provide you with a line drawing and parts list for your washer and the replacement is straight forward and simple for most people to do themselves. Just unplug the washer from the electric outlet and turn off the water supply valves and disconnect the hoses at the washer. Now remove the back panel of the washer and you should be able to get at the water valve.

Remove the screw(s) that hold the valve onto the washer cabinet and you can get at the wiring plug that controls the valve. Just swap it out and connect the plug and re-mount the valve to the washer and put the back on, connect the hoses, (make sure to get them on the right location HOT / COLD) and plug in the washer and turn the water back on and you should be all set!

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Cold water will not pump into washer but hot water does.

HI. i would check the water valve inlet screens and make sure that the wall outlet faucets are fully open. if the screens and the wall faucets are OK, this will confirm a water valve issue. you will need to replace the water valve assembly in this case.
