Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a Kelvinator MW52-K for years no problem.....until now.Cold water entering very very slowly ( sounds like a spray ).I have removed the pipe run into tub no problems there all clear. No problem with hot water. Where the cold water pipe(female) screws onto the plastic (male'bit') I can see a filter which appears to be fixed to the inside of the 'bit'. It seems clean and I have blown into it but dare not try to prise it off.Can I buy a complete valve and try to replace. What do you think?

unfortunately it sounds like you have a stuck plunger in the cold side of your water inlet valve.if the screens are clear and your water pressure is good,thats what you have.

Yes, the only other thing I would do and you may have done this is to put the hose directly over in the washer tub and turn the water on to check the flow. If that's good then replace the water valve.

If you checked the screens at the water inlet valve and they were not clogged, then you probably have a defective water inlet valve and will have to replace it. Hope this helped.

For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

Water will not come into the washer but moter is running.I have checked all hoses


shut taps and disconnect hose and place in bucket then make sure water comes out of hose by slowly opening taps.
If ok check if the electric valves open by setting first cold then hot on temp button. if hot water only then cold valve is faulty. you should hear a click sound from valves usually situated under control panel. if not then unplug machine, remove control panel and measure resistance on electrical connections of cold and hot valves with ohm meter at around 15 ohm if they are marked 12 v
meaning they operate on 12 volts from the control panel computer.
if no ohm reading or in the mega ohms replace valve. you can swap the wires between cold and hot if cold valve is faulty and use the hot valve for cold wash only then you wont have hot water.
If both valves ohms around 15 ohm then plug in and measure voltage at valve when machine starts you should get 12 volts on valves.( be careful for mains high voltage from mains wire entering panel when measuring keep hands clear of mains voltage and any water from panel.
If no voltage may then be computer panel faulty. check connections from valve connectors to panel and connectors on panel may be loose if not check voltage on panel where wires connect to computer panel if no voltage then make sure the water level valve is not stuck in closed position that will tell the computer the machine is full of water. just remove one or two wires from the level control valve (the level valve is a round plastic valve about the size of a small cup and has wires and a thin plastic pipe connected to it )and start machine if water enters then replace level valve if not maybe its computer board fault, replace. (you can test level valve with ohm meter and blow into the place where the pipe is connected by removing pipe it should click and ohm meter should show around 0.2 ohms when blowing and high ohms when not blowing.) some click twice as they have two levels.

"nf" error code on Maytag front load stackable


I think your hunch is probably correct. "nf" is "no fill" or "slow fill" so if the machine is in a cold enough location it likely has frozen supply lines or inlet water valve. About all you can do is slowly warm the area around it with a space heater or wait until Spring. I wouldn't try to warm it in a day though. Frozen pipes that are thawed too quickly can break, leaving you with a real mess on your hands, possibly even structural damage to the property. All you need to do is get the temps above freezing, it doesn't need to be balmy. If you use an electric heater make sure it is well away from combustibles and the machine if possible. When water lines break they tend to spray where they want so keep that under consideration when placing the heater and make sure it's off the floor. If i started warming the room today i wouldn't even try to use the machine for a week. And i'd babysit it as much as humanly possible. Good luck.

Cold water entering very slowly adn machine makes


Hello. The most common reason for your problem lies within the hoses that fill your machine, located in the rear. Pull the machine out from the wall and turn off the water. Then use a pair of channel locks or other pliers to remove one hose from the wall faucet. Check the screen and remove any debris that is found there. Then reconnect that hose and repeat the process with the other hose. Regards, Joe

My GWL10 fills really slowly. It starts fine with the hot water, then slows to a trickle when it switches to cold but it doesn't seem to affect it if I change the temperature selection. I normally leave it...


sounds like you have a restriction on the cold water water pipe kinked or a blockage turn off cold water and remove pipe from cold tap then turn tap on and see if water is coming through fast enough if it is then the restriction is in the hose or valve on washing machine if not then the restriction is in the cold water tap

Hotpoint Aquarius WF100


Firstly, there should be only one hose, always connected to the cold supply.
The unit will heat the water to the setting you choose for the wash (40 - 60 - etc)

Secondly, if the unit is leaking water, try turning down the cold pressure, this will slow the supply pressure to the unit and prevent spray out from the detergent drawer.

Your supply tap should have an isloting tap on it, adjust this until it sullpies water at an acceptable rate.
Do this by feeding the hose into a bucket/basin and tweak it until it pours out - not sprays out.
This should alleviate any leaks around the machine.

Hope this helps.

Cold water only very slowly trickles into the washer. Hot water works fine. Cold water has very good pressure and volume at all other sources in the house. The cold water hose at back of washer is clean...


there can be 3 reasons for this I will tell u the easiest way to test this first
Problem1)turn the water off at the blue tap fitting that is proberbly under your sink take the blue pipe off at the washer end and place it into the sink turn the blue tap back on if the water comes out quick then the problem is more then likely your cold water solenoid that is either slightly blocked were it fits to the washer,But if it doesnt come out quick then the other 2 problems are as follows.
Problem2)the blue tap that u turn the cold water on to the blue pipe undue the little screw in the middle of the tap and pull the blue fitting off now with a pair of pliers turn the square metal fitting that was under the blue fitting making sure that the end of the pipe is in the sink if it comes out quick then that is the problem the blue tap fitting is rounded off when ot should be square turn the water of and replace the pipe and turn the water back on the cold water should be better now.
Problem3)the blue tap that u turn the cold water pipe of at the copper pipe is blocked or it has a broken shut off valve inside it this will need replacing these are the only problems that it could be let me know if this is any help to u peter
