Water is bypassing through the water inlet valve
easy fix go to lowes ect and get a cap plug for a water hose male end and screw it onto the water valve that has no hose connected to it

you could also screw on a water hose sprayer onto the valve if you have one on the end of the garden hose just make sure that it is turmed off

Water not filling very quick

Hi Jeanine,

Lets do the easy - inexpensive check / repair first:

Shut off the water
supply at the input to the hose. Turn the washer on to warm to allow water pressure in the hose to be relieved. It should take only a second or two to do this.

Shut the machine OFF.

Mark the hoses H and C (or other marking you choose) on both ends to match Hot and Cold water.

Disconnect the hoses completely.

Check for and remove any sediment (and other debris) caught in the screen mesh-type filter in the end of the hose and at the hot and cold water input connections on the washer.

Check condition of the rubber washers in the hose ends and replace as needed.

Connect the hose to the supply side and hold the other ends into the washer tub or other wide mouth container or bucket.

Turn the water ON and then OFF momentarily to flush the hoses while holding the hose ends. You should see a high volume stream from both hoses.

Reconnect to the washer side connection (after making sure the washers are still in place).

Tighten hoses to hand tight - plus an additional 1/4 turn.

Turn on the water supply

Make an initial check for leaks and drips at both ends of the hose. Correct as needed. Check again after 5 minutes. Correct as needed and repeat this step.

At this point, the flow of water to the washer has either been verified or corrected. If there is still an issue with water flow it is likely a problem with the valve inside the washer (has the hose connections sticking out the back of the machine. You can attempt to replace it yourself or turn the problem over to an appliance repairer.

Good luck!

I have a magic chef 10.1 kg super capacity heavy duty washer model W224lgv serial 10569997sf with hot water problem. only cold water goes in , pump allows to cold water to go in

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(pre-typed for hot AND cold!)

If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call and a check that it isn't the control PCB ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

When I hook of the water hoses to the back of washing machine and turn on the water, water spews out of hose

Hello Ifox5858,

I understand that when you hook up the hose to the back of your washing machine that the water comes out of the hose. The problem that you are having may be because of washers are missing out of the hose ends. You need to take the hoses off and look and see if you have rubber washers in the side that is leaking. The washers are standard water hose washers you can buy at any hardware store.

1. Place washer in hose
2. Install hose hand tight
3. Turn a quarter turn with wrench
4. Turn water on check for leaks if leaking slowly turn tighter to leak stops

This should fix your problem.

Thank you for choosing

No cold water is coming into the tub.

The most common reason would be a blocked inlet screen. Turn off water shut offs behind washer and unhook the cold inlet hose from the back of the washer. Remove the screen from inside where the hose came off of, then replace the screen. Re-attach hose and turn valves back on. Check for leaks. Test washer. If that does not solve the problem, the next most likely cause would be the cold water inlet valve. (The part the inlet hose screws onto)

hi bigger
turn off the valves disconnect the hose check the threads on the water intake valve(bit the hose screws onto) are not damaged by cross threading. then try wrapping silk plumbing thread tape(available at all plumbong outlets including B&Q,Homebase etc.) around the threads(wind it clockwise and give it plenty)then check the rubber washer at the end of the hose is not damaged of missing and reconnect the hose
