What brand and model do you have, most domestic units have a combination hot/cold valve? You just need a meter too verify the valve is closing, if the valve solenoid is closing you may be having a water pressure issue, too much water pressure can cause leaks.

No hot water getting into Estate topload washer. Have to turn off cold tap completely to get hot washer for wash cycle. Then turn cold tap back on for rinse cycle.


One simple thing to try is to clean them screens on the water valve. Remove the hoses and get the screens out. Give em a clean or chunk em and wash on!

Hot water won't run into washer


G'day. The hoses from your laundry taps hook up to your machine onto what are called solenoids. These are like electrical taps. The machine decides when to turn these on and off and in what order via the timer and depending on what modes are selected. Generally there is a hot and cold solenoid. If you have both hot and cold hooked up to your machine, you can simply swap these hoses around (put the hot tape on the cold solenoid and vis-versa) Then when you select cold, you'll actually be getting hot. Some new machines heat water internally like dishwashers, and they only have one solenoid. Again if you put the hot tape only on, you will get hot water with cold selected. In both solutions you are losing the option for cold or hot cycles with a click of a button - now you must swop hoses...

Will not fill. I have replaced the water inlet valve. What else could be the problem?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(my standard answer plus comments pertaining for you!)
If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve (which you have changed already). Check all of the wiring then sorry it needs a service call probably for the control PCB not feeding correct voltage to the valve;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,

My Limited Edition Kenmore Electronic Fabric care washer is not filling up during the wash cycle and will not run the rinse cycle. I recently changed the hot and cold water hoses on the washer.

I have a Fisher and Paykal MW512. When starting the machine on cold cycle the water only comes out in dribbles. On a hot cycle the it will fill but when it gets to the rinse it will not fill with water. Is...


had similar issue - cold water wouldn't come thorugh to fill the drum but the hot would. (changed the hot water hose to the cold water tap as an interim fix). father and husband managed to get the lid off the machine (screwdriver prising involved to flip the lid off the tabs near the front of the machine) then they were able to get in and have a look. ended up being a solanoid (spelling?) that had died. basically this part has magnetic parts to open/close the valve and the magnets had died or something. part replaced -- cost about $65. machine working fine now. hope that helps and made sense!

Getting hot water only into the tub. Is that a bad mixing valve? Where can I get one for a VERY old Maytag Washer?


The cold water valve could be faulty. It's quite possible that the valves haven't changed. If you don't need hot water put the HOT hose on the COLD tap and wash on 'hot' or 'warm' you'll need to rinse on hot or warm or the machine wont open the 'hot' valve which is now delivering cold water!!!!

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
