GE washer Hi, My GE washer will not fill on cold. Right now I am using it having the hoses hooked up backwards I have cleaned the filters both inline and at the outlet. It seems to be working fine except at the rinse cycle when the only options are cold and warm no water goes in at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

What would cause a GE Harmony washer to fill too slowly? The water in cold water wash cycle literally just dribbles into the tub.

The filler hose has a wire mesh filter in it to keep the inlet water from passing particles that would keep the solenoid valve from closing completely. Shut off the water and take the hose off from both the faucet and the washer. clean the screen and check the one in the washer too.

I have a crosley cw5500w top load washer, it is filling very slowly despite adequate water pressure. Is there an inline filter that could be clogged?

Yes their are inlet filter screens where the fill hoses hook up to the washer if you shut off the water at the wall and remove the hoses at the unit and look and you will see them carefully pop them out and clean,,,And you will be back in operation

Slow Cold Water Fill

There is possibly a filter screen in the hoses as well as the water valve.Check the hoses for screens.Occasionally the water valve will deteriorate inside and must be replaced.
I am on a water well and have the same problem. This weekend I installed a inline filter purchased from Lowes. It has stopped the sand and silt problem. You will have to buy one extra water hose to do this yourself.

Maytag Legacy Series Top Load Washer model SAV515DAWW When filling, the cold water just trickles in and takes a long, long time to fill. When I unscrew the hose from the washer and turn the water on it...

From what you have said, you may have a bad solenoid in your water fill valve. it's the rubber piece under the debris screen. if you can get that out and replace it, you'll be golden.

Sounds like you have a bad fill valve on the cold water side. If your hoses are not clogged, then remove the hose and check the cold water inlet going into the machine for clogs. There is a screen that can trap mineral deposits and/or rust. If you have well water or hard water, they can become clogged easily. Sometimes you can clean them out and they will work just fine. Most of the time, however, you will need to replace the fill valve. Make sure you unplug the machine and turn the water off. The valves are electronically controlled. I hope this helps.
