There is a hot water valve & a cold water valve on the Dexter T300 machines but it is a 2 coil valve. does the hot water valve supply only hot water or does one side provide water to perhaps the...

supplies hot water when needed, cold water when needed. and then warm water when needed. so the second coil is for warm water. it basically mixes the hot and cold water.

Washer machine filled up with water all night with door open? I have a mess of water in my basement and no water pressure.

If water comes into washer with no power to it and water valves are turned on then you have a bad water inlet valve in washer. Try unplugging washer and turn on water valves see if water comes in note may be small amount (but it does add up if it runs all night) if it does your water valve is bad..Replace.Sometimes the vales can stick open a little it is caused by buildup inside valves from minerals and other items in water....Note make sure if you replace valve that you have sediment screens in your water inlet lines on washer that will prevent items in water getting stuck in valves and keeping them open..If you need more help please ask if I helped you please vote Thanks and good luck

Water continues to run into the washing machine through the whole wash cycle and even when the machine is off. I have to keep the tape turned off. other than that the washing machine functions normally.

Hi Welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. You have debris inside your water inlet valve. You can try to clean it by doing the following:

- First remove both hoses from the water inlet valve and remove the inlet screens of the water valve.
(Use a knife blade on the outer part of the screens to remove them from the water valve)
- Connect both hoses to the water inlet valve without the inlet screens.
- Connect ONE hose to the wall faucet
- Place ONE hose in a bucket

SELECT WARM WASH and start wash fill

Water should flow into the washer and the bucket. Use the handle of a screwdriver and tap the hose connections of the inlet water valve for about 20 seconds. (your trying to free the debris from the inlet water valve diaphram)

Stop Fill

Reverse Hose connection at the wall.... i.e. hook up other hose and disconnect the one you had connected. Place the hose you disconnected from the wall into the bucket.

START warm fill

Water should flow into the washer and the bucket. Use the handle of a screwdriver and tap the hose connections of the inlet water valve for about 20 seconds. (your STILL trying to free the debris from the inlet water valve diaphrams)


- Connect hose to wall connection
- WASH the inlet screens under slowly running water until both sides are clean
- Remove hoses from the water inlet valve and install the inlet screens.
- Reconnect hoses and turn on water supply

TEST HOT and COLD fill

Turn off machine.... IF the debris was freed the water flow will stop when the machine is turned off.

If this flushing attempt does not correct your constant water flow the remedy is to replace the water inlet valve on your washer.

I can help with locating parts ON-Line but will need your model number to help you should you require a water valve.

Hopefully you are able to clear the debris by doing the above. (50 - 50 chance of it working)

Thanks for Choosing FixYa,

What would cause a washer not to fill?

a bad water valve.take off the two water lines,stick them in the washer where the clothes go and open the water valve,hold the hoses when you do this,see if any water is coming out the hoses,if not you have a bad house water valve and the washer is ok.if water comes out then you need to check the water valve on the back of the washer.if you need more help you need to send the model number,hope this helps you.

Cold water runs hot even when hot water valve is turned off.

check to see if the cold tap is connected to the cold valve on the machine and the hot tap to the hot valve. on the machine it will have cold or c for the cold valve and hot or h for the hot valve. please reply if you need further help.

No/low water inlet. Diag mode both ht & cold lights flash

first test water valve ohms reading, this fault could be either control module or water valve.first open top panel to see valves. turn power off to unit. try putting the hot water valve wire to the cold and the cold to the hot. hopefully they will reach, sometimes they dont. then put panel back on with loose screws. turn power on , select low water ,and hot fill.push start button but make sure your hoses r connected and turned on. the reason i"m telling u how to do this is to eliminate the control board as being faulty if the cold water comes into unit then the problem is your computer, if no water comes in it is your water valve.i hope this helps if u still need help please reply

It keeps saying LF in the middle of the rinse cycle.

this error code means that the water valves are taking over 10 minutes to fully fill the desired water level. this could indicate that you may have a faulty water valve, and or a kinked hose that isnt allowing water to flow TO the valves. part number for your water valve is W10059320. And is a fairly complicated valve to replace, A faulty water valve can often happen if you water has alot of calcium or rust in it.Hope this helps.

GE washer keeps filling with water.

It sounds like you have a bad fill valve assembly. Normally the valve opens and closes by an electrically activated solenoid which is usually controlled by a pressure switch. However...IF the diaphragm that closes on the valve is broken, has a hole in it, cannot close all the way due to an obstruction, or if your water pressure is too low, the valve will remain open and water will leak by. Since you didn't mention any problems with the hot water side of the valve, I would suspect that water pressure probably isn't a problem. Turn the water off and remove the hoses to the fill valve on the back of the washer. Inspect the cold water side for any obstructions and/or check for any damage to the valve itself. If you don't find anything obvious, replacing the fill valve will probably correct your problem. I hope this helps.
