Hello

Please check the water line for any clogs/obstructions and try to clean it. You can also try cleaning the inlet screen. Hope you understand if this wont solve the issue then it can be due to a bad inlet valve or please get back to me with the model# of your washer for any other questions.

Water for intial fill works fine . when it goes to rinse cycle the water just dribbles in making wash time go on for ever ! whats the solution?


when you start the washer set it just on cold and see if it fills slowly,when the washer goes to rinse it just uses cold water,you could have a problem with the washer or in the house,when you run it on just cold and if it dribbles in,stop it shut down the water going to the washer,remove the cold water hose from the back of the washer,stick it in the sink or inside the washer and turn it on,if it comes out strong then you have a bad water valve on the washer,if it comes out slowly you have a bad water valve in the house and it's not the washer.hope this helps

My washer will fill with water during the wash cycle just fine, but during the rinse cycle the water just trickles in. The water lines seem to be fine. What else could be causing my problem?


usually the wash is a mix of hot and cold and the rinse is just cold, that said, it is most likely a problem with the cold water supply. check to make sure the cold water valve is all the way open and the hose isn't kinked. If those are ok turn the water supply off and remove the supply lines on the machine side, you will see a screen inside the washer that may be clogged with sediment. If so, just clean it out and put it back together. You may also want to run a wash cycle on cold only to see if it fills slowly for the wash cycle. If it does fill slowly on cold you have low pressure on the cold side.

The water fills very slowly on rinse


You probably have a cold inlet valve with restricted flow, either because the filter on the inlet valve is clogged or because the cold valve is failing......If you wash on "warm" you have both hot and cold water mixed. On rinse there is probably only cold water used....Check water flow for HOT and COLD settings and you'll probably see the difference...Good luck...Nomess

MAchine fills slowly. Have cleaned the screens.


Check the solenoid. You can swap the hot and cold water hoses and set the wash for hot but cold will come out. Then you can see if the flow is better. If it is the cold valve isn't opening all the way.

Hi…

Let me know

Cold water enters washer very slowly


First - check the water inlet hose screen for calcium or rust build-up.

If cold water is filling slowly, take these steps:
  1. Unplug the washer.
  2. Turn off the cold water supply faucet.
  3. Remove the fill hose connected to the back of the washer.
  4. Checkthe fill screen on the cold water inlet valve for debris or depositsthat can restrict the water flow. If necessary, you can carefully pullthe screen out and clean it. Flush the inlet thoroughly and replace thescreen. NOTE: If debris makes it past this screen, it can cause thevalve to leak and cause a flood in your laundry room. Monitor thewasher for this type of problem is you pull the screen out and clean it.
  5. Placethe end of the hose in a bucket and briefly turn on the faucet to checkfor proper pressure and flow from the cold water hose. If waterpressure from the cold inlet water hose is bad, check the hose forclogs. If the hose is okay, then I recommend calling a plumber to checkthe water supply to your washer cold water faucet.
  6. If the above checks do not help you resolve the fill problem, you will likely need to replace the inlet fill valve.

Your cold water fill valve (mixer valve) solenoid has failed if after cleaning - the condition remains.

Kenmore 110 Top Load Washer-cold water fills extremely slowly


No it is probably the screen that is either in the end of the hose that attaches to the machine, and/or the screen is placed so that the cone is toward the machine instead of pointing away from the machine.
If the cone is pointing towards the machine any debris in the lines would collect and eventually fill the screen cone and slow or shut off water flow.

Bosch washing machine


You have a sticking water inlet valve, which is slowly letting water enter m/c.
If it is a hot and cold fill m/c, what you need to do is turn either the hot or cold tap off to the m/c, and see if the problem continues, if say you turn the hot off and it still comes into the washer, then you have sticking cold valve, replace with new one. if after turning cold off, and it still fills, then you need new hot valve fitting.
If it is a cold fill m/c only, then simply replace the cold inlet valve.
Problem solved.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Fisher&Paykel Smart Drive 601 Both Hot and Cold Water Fill very slowly


Hey there. I've had the same problem recently. It would fill slowly, and then after a while, it wouldn't fill at all. So I got some a new valve. it cost about $NZ30 delivered. You'll need one each for hot and cold. You can get parts from http://www.primedistributors.co.nz/. I think the part you need is 426142. you can check an image of it on the website. Good luck.
