Replace or clean your water inlet valve. It appears that the hot water solenoid has either become clogged, or had failed. You can find a replacement at repairclinic.com. Type in your COMPLETE model number in the Search window and there will be two of them located under the "Water Valve/Float" heading. Depending on WHICH type of valve you have, a replacement costs between $28 and $74. Refer to the part illustrations to make sure you are ordering the correct part. If you require assistance in accessing the inlet valve, let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS If you attempt to clean the valve, you will need to turn off the water supply and disconnect the hoses. Check the inlet screens for sediment or debris.

Model NFW7200TW Washer wont fill with water


Are you sure you have both hot and cold water connected? Try turning the water valve on, if you don't have hot water make sure you choose cold cycle. That's the first place I'd start.

Hot/cold cycle stops before filling up


Your washer has a set amount of time to fill. If the flow is low and the time runs out, then all you will get is the amount of water that was able to fill. Check your lines to be sure that they all fully opened.

When set on delicate cold/cold water, it starts to fill with cold but switches to hot water after a few seconds


Sounds like you've got the hoses switched, and the cold water you're feeling is just what is in the hot water lines until the lines get purged. Try filling on the hot setting and see if cold or hot comes out; my guess is you'll get cold water on the hot setting.

My washer no longer produces cold water, only hot, except for the start of the cycle. The machine will tell me that it's not getting cold water. It doesn't matter whether I set the water temperature at...


It sounds like the fill hoses are inverted. Most of the Fisher washers only fill with cold water after the initial fill. So if the hose are inverted then it will only fill with hot. Beyond this I'm at a loss. Good luck

Water continues to fill into the washer drum on the spin cycle.


Hi

You could have a stuck solenoid valve
Try this: Set the water temp on cold. Turn on only the hot water.
Does hot water try and fill the drum?
If so then there is a problem with the hot solenoid.

Next set the water on hot. Turn on only the cold water. Does cold water try and fill the drum ?
If so then there is a problem with the cold solenoid.
