Not filling with water

Worked fine yesterday. Today you push the normal wash button and it sits for about a minute and then the motor goes on. Normally that first minute or more it is filling with water. The water supply is on. Any ideas???

Try cleaning out the filter in the fill valve. Or test for power t the fill valve while trying to fill. It may even be a bad fill valve assuming you have power and water at the valve. A new valve is around $25

    Sorry forgot to tell you to check to see if the float is free. This is usually in the front and if it got knocked out of place it will kill power to the fill valve. Move it up and down by hand and see if it is free. Sometimes it gets dirty and can't move. This float turns off the water when it is the proper level. It also prevents overfilling.

Hi,

Did you fix this problem? We have the same with Zanussi ZWD 1472 W. It takes some water and stops after 2 minutes. We need to shut machine down and fill water manually. It works fine then.

Indesit W123 washing machine


it maybe your brushes are worn out, on alot of machines these days if the brushes wear the machine wont fill , or your motor itself could be faulty or your board. Unplug the machine , take the back off , get yourself a test meter disconnect the motor and put the probes from the meter and put it across the tags, if the motor is wrong you wont get continuity between 2 tags normally 1 and 5 looking from the top of the block going down
