Hello there:
If your washer is overfilling, check these: when you fill it with - 95ce19e.jpgb17a9b4.jpg
Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve. Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

Our wash is only hummimng noise will not drain or even fill


The first thing to check is the inlet hoses. Make sure that the inlet shut-offs are open. Next disconnect the hoses from the washer and the shut-offs. Check and clean the filters both in the washer and where the hoses connect to the shut-offs. Connect the washer hoses to your shut-off valves and check the water flow through them into a bucket. You may want to replace the hoses. Some anti-flood hoses constrict and essentially prevent water from flowing through them when they detect damage.

If these steps don't solve the problem, the inlet valves on the washer may have failed in the closed position or the control board isn't giving the open signal to that valve. If you add a comment with the model number for your washer, I may be able to provide information about the needed parts.

Most washers will hum when they can't get water through the inlet valve. Most of the time, it's the shut-offs or the hoses. (No washer will drain without water in the unit. That would damage the pump.)

I hope this helps.

NFW7200TW hums and does not turn or fill with water


if it doesn't fill the water valve will hum,first thing is to see if it's a problem with the house water valve or the washer valve,shut off the water supply,reomve the water hoses from the back of washer,mark the hoses so they go back on the same way,stick the hoses into the washer or a bucket and turn the water on,if water comes out of hoses then you know the problem is just the washer,check the valve,look at the screens where the hoses connect to the valve,usually sediment gets in there and the valve on the washer has to be replaced,on some the screens can be removed and cleaned,also you say you have trouble with the lock,what's humming is it the lock or the valve,if you turn it to drain and spin will it run?you could have a bad door switch,if door doesn't latch washer won't run but most likely bad water valve

Hi, our dishwasher will not fill itself, or work at all. We tried filling it manually and still is not working. Can you please help??? thank you, Priscilla Dickinson BBQ&Steakhouse


Hello

Water Not Flowing Properly

Check to see if the water source to your dishwasher is turned on and not blocked or clogged. Also make sure the water line between the dishwasher and water source is connected and free from blockage. The door has to be closed properly as well.

If your water pressure is low, you can adjust the water intake value on the dishwasher to allow more water to flow through.

There is an overflow detection device on the dishwasher, so if the machine detected that, it will shut down the intake pump and open the drain pump. If this is the case, you will need to call for service because if there is water in the machine it will have to be cleaned out. Remember to turn off the water source to prevent further damage.

Cold water supply very very slow


This is a result of a restriction in any one of several places. Start with the washer off / unplugged from the outlet and shut off the water supply that feeds the washer's water supply hoses. The hot a cold water valves (those that are turned off independently of each other) should require the same number of turns to shut off. If not - one is open more than the other and could be a cause for the slow fill. Unscrew the hot AND cold water hose connectors from the washer. Inspect the inside of the connector to ensure there is nothing obstructing the hose itself. Make sure the rubber washer is seated properly, too. Check the entire length of both hoses to be sure there are no kinks or evidence of crushing. Also look for stretched circumference hose that indicate it could breakat any time. Damaged hoses should be replaced promptly to minimize chances of flooding should a hose burst. Hold the ends of the hoses inside the wash machine in such a way that splashing is reduced. Open the water supply and determine if the flow of water is the same or different for the hot and cold water. If the same, the problem is at / in the washer. If unequal flows are detected (with both valves opened the same amount) , the issue is probably with cold water supply or shut off valve. You'll probably have to call a plumber if the difference in flow bothers you that much.

If the flow is the same, it could be a problem with the water inlet or water supply solenoid inside the washer itself. Many washers have a strainer or filter inside the water supply connections. Check yours for foreign objects, debris or build up and clear any found.

Reassemble and and make sure connections are tight (do not use a wrench to tighten) enough to prevent leaking and turn of water supply. Operate the washer and compare cold and hot water flow while filling the tub. If still unequal, you'll have to either call for repair or look further for a restriction in the solenoid valve or deeper inside the machine if it bothers you that much or is painfully slow to fill.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

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
