If you select warm water wash, do you get warm, hot only or cold only? If temp OK, but fills slow one of the fill hose screens is clogged. If only hot or only cold the opposite fill valve solonoid is bad.
Hi, When the water is to be filling, do you hear the inlet valve humming? Remove the inlet valve hoses and see if there is any sand plugging the screen inside the inlet valve. If the inlet valve does not hum when the water is to be filling, you will need to replace the valve.
I hope this helps you.
First make sure that you have adequate water flow from the hose bib coming from the wall. You can do this by turning off your cold water connection at the wall, then disconnect the cold water hose. Then turn the faucet on and make sure the water flows freely. The most common reason for your problem is a clogged screen where the cold water hose connects to the back of the washer. To check this, disconnect the cold hose from the back of the washer and clean the small screen inside the cold water inlet on the washer.
your cold side on water valve may need the screen cleaned.if that doesnt help then you will need to replace your water valve.take hose off cold water side of water valve and you will see the screen.it may have alot of blockage.
Washer is most likely trying to fill with cold rinse water and the inlet screen is blocked or the cold water solenoid is bad. If you set washer to wash cold only it will not fill or fill very slowly. When you set it to warm or hot you are getting almost all hot. Clean inlet screen or replace inlet water valve.
You either have a defective pressure switch or water inlet valve. Start to fill the machine with warm water so that both solenoids on the water inlet valve (hot and cold) are activated. After about 30-60 seconds, push the timer knob in to stop water flow. If the water continues to flow, replace the water inlet valve. If this is the case, it may take a few times of starting and stopping water flow to allow solenoid to heat up and become symptomatic. If water flow stops abruptly each time knob is pushed in, you most likely have a defective pressure switch (water level switch).
Karen, start by removing the cold water hose to the inlet valve in back. It will have a screen in the inlet valve. Make sure the screen is clear of sand and debris. Start there and post back. Catriver.
