My washing machine drains water while in wash mode.


Hi, take a look at this video. You problem is probably a drain valve that is not closing completely. It could be due to debris getting stuck in it or the valve itself is failing. This video will help you figure out what it is and how to fix it.

Indesit iwb5113 keeps filling up


The water level in your, and most other, washing and dishwashing machines is controlled by an air pressure switch that senses water level by the rising air pressure compressed in the pressure, (level), switch body itself. This air pressure is usually transmitted by a thin rubber tube on the bottom of the washing machine drum, or sump hose. As the water gets higher in the drum, air is compressed in the level switch until it operates, and turns the fill valves off. The pressure switch is always mounted at the top of the washing machine cabinet - look for a circular switch with the thin rubber or plastic tube fitted into the bottom. What can happen is if the rubber tube rubs against moving parts in the washer, it can get a hole worn in it - so the air does not compress and the water doesn't turn off.. You will have to examine the tube very carefully to find holes like this. Alternatively, the tube could have come off, or blocked with limescale at the bottom end - try removing the tube at the pressure switch end and blowing through it - any blockage must be removed. A last, rare, possibility is the rubber diaphragm in the pressure switch is leaking - but very very rare. Most modern machines have an electronic backup that measures fill time in case the pressure switch fails. If your machine floods, it doesn't have this.

My whirlpool front load washing machine accept hot water and no cold water entering on the machine.


The water fill valve - The water fill valve is a mechanical and electrical part, the coils on the valve need electricity to mechanically open the valve to allow the water to flow into the washer....myth....the washer pumps water into itself...no, it does not. The fill valve opens and the house water pressure pushes the water into the washing machine.
No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can test a fill valve live for 120 volts, power to a fill valve coil and no fill = a bad fill valve. You can also test the coils for continuity, no continuity = a bad fill valve. Some Maytag washers have a fuse in the fill valve circuit, if this fuse let go the washer will not fill. Fill valves can also from time to time stick open and not stop filling. If you have to shut off the fill valves to stop the water from filling in the washer, you have a bad fill valve and you will have to replace it.

Washing machine fills with water when not in use.


You have an open solenoid on your water valve where the fill hoses connect. Change the water valve and you should be good.

Washing machine wont fill


hmmm...wool requires cold water...I'm guessing that first the hot water and now the cold water solenoid valves have become clogged with sediment. test by turning off water. then loosen the hose connection to each inlet in back of washer. then slowly open water valves and let water pour into wash tub if hose will reach, otherwise pour into a bucket. if water comes out of hose, then look for metal screens at hose connections to washer and clean those. if still no water through solenoids (after re-connecting water hoses) then may need to disassemble solenoids and clean those too.

No water


Your problem sounds like a fill valve problem. This is what your fill hoses connect to on the back of your washer. It is an electric solenoid valve that is supposed to open when filling. However, sediments from hard water and well water have a tendency to clog them up to the point where they don't pass water any longer. Sometimes, the solenoid itself goes bad. A new valve usually runs about $20-$30. If you've checked your fill hoses and verified the household valves are working, then I recommend replacing the fill valve assembly in the washer. I hope this helps.
