Question about Hotpoint WMA33 Front Load Washer
Machine runs but won't take in hot water, the hot water valve resistance has been checked against the cold and is ok a 3.6k ohms. there is no nautral to the valve, the board must switch to ground to energise the valve as the valve has 240volt on both sides.
There is hot water at the valve.
On rinse the machine takes in cold and pumps it out ok.
Board looks ok, no damaged tracks or damaged components but there is a slight crack in the board but not near any tracks, could there be something else be causing the problem before I fork out for a new board.
If you have the proper voltage at your solenoid (proper voltage should be on a label on the side of the valve) and you can't feel it clicking on and off and can't feel any water coming out the other side then the problem is your valve is physically stuck close. the valve operates like a piston, when you apply voltage to the valve it creates a magnetic field pulling the plunger up and allowing water to pass. and when voltage is dropped the spring loaded plunger drops back down shutting off water flow. the two things that would cause the valve not to open would be the electro magnet is on back-words or some scale (more likely) has gotten inside the valve and caused it to either not open and close or just clogged the hole
