Question about Hotpoint WMA33 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Won't fill with hot water only

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.

    Found the problem to be the main board, replaced with new. the new board showed the door switch to be faulty also, replaced this and the machine works.

    The old board was running but wouldn't let in hot water and didn't show a door problem.

    strange one.

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

I have an Estate 8cycle 2speed washer that won't fill unless the temperature selector is set to Hot/Cold. Any ideas on what I need to check first?


I bet If you switch the water hose around it will fill on cold and not hot. Reason I think so is that hot fills and doesn't use the cold line. So either you got a bad cold valve or a blocked screen. Also Try to run the hoses into a bucket and see if they run well to eliminate the water source.

Lg wf 801 won't fill


Yes , It can be related to the control board, but first of all please make sure that there is good water flows in both the inlets, check the flow after the valve , ensure that the inlet filters are not clogged and check all the connections from the harness to the valve and panel

Washing machine won't fill


This can be due to a clogging of the inlet valve as the water flow is restricted. You can remove the water line to the washer and check the flow , then check if the inlet valve works after the power is switched on the washer , If there is no flow to the drum then the inlet valve is faulty provided there is power to the valve or the main controller is faulty

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L top load washer -- hot water okay at inlet on back of unit, but won't fill tub. Is it a valve or a clogged line inside?


Most likey a bad water valve. You can replace it with just a few screws and a pair of pliers for the hose. You can test by swicting around hoses and the plugs on valve if you'd like to test it then try the machine on cold wash(it should be hot). While you switch them inspect the screens for rust and any clogging. Good Luck, Mastatech

We can only use hot water in our Whirlpool 7.5kg WFE1070BD 1000RPM - how to we shut off the hot water and use cold water? We have tried only cold but the machine will not operate. Please help. Many...


Turn off the water to the machine. Disconnect the cold water hose from the back of the machine and put it in a large bucket. Turn on the water to see if you get full-pressure cold water from the hose. If not, the shut-off valve or other plumbing has a problem.

If you do get cold water from the hose, check the strainer inside the hose fitting on the back of the washer. Clean it if it is clogged. If you still don't get cold water in the machine, you have a problem with either the solenoid valve or the cold water fill contacts in the timer (the timer won't start until the tub is up to the selected level, but if the valve isn't opening or the supply line is otherwise blocked, the machine will never fill). Sometimes in this case you can hear the solenoid valve humming (normally the sound is masked by the running water).

If the problem is a clogged strainer, clean out the hot water strainer also.

I find I get better wash results with warm water (runs both hot and cold for the wash cycle). The soap is more active than in cold water, so I don't need quite so much, and the machine doesn't take as long to finish a cycle since it fills faster. Of course, the cold water has to be running to get the energy savings compared to hot only.

Hot water will not cut of


Hi, If the washer is unplugged, does the hot water shut off? If not, then you need to change the water inlet valve.
If I can help you further, please let me know.

Thanks

Mav6000awq water fill problem


Check first the filters on the cold inlet water line (both sides). Then, if problem still exist - check that the cold inlet water valve works(it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine)). If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and doesn't work - You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace it for a new one. Good luck
