No cold water Running into Machine


Try checking for debris clogging the inlet of the washer. Shut off the supply water, then start the machine to do a warm wash (to relieve any water pressure in the hoses) for a few seconds - then shut off. Unplug from power and move the machine so that you can have good access to it and then mark and disconnect the hoses. Some machines have screen filters on the hose inlets. Check and clear out any obstructions you may find. It's not unusual to find sand, metal / rust chips, etc as can result from being pumped up from a well or an opened fire hydrant on the street due to a fire or the town simply flushing lines.

Before reconnecting the hoses - place and hold the ends into the tub (if possible) and turn the water on slowly to make sure that water comes out of both. This ensures that there is water flow all the way up to the machine inlets. You'll have to clear or replace any parts (hoses, screen, etc.) as needed to get water flowing.

If still not working - the issue can be a simple hot / cold water solenoid valve replacement ($) to something more involved ($$$). Check out the video to get an idea as to how to check out the valve (it's very similar to all machines).

Good luck!

F20 error code


copied from the net..............


The "F20" fault code is indicating NO WATER IS BEING DETECTED ENTERING THE WASHER OR THE PRESSURE SWITCH IS NOT TRIPPING OR SENSING A TRIP.

If there is no water in the unit:

Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way and water enters.

Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves.

Verify inlet valve operation.

If there is water in the unit:

Verify drain pump operation.

Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good condition and properly connected to tub and pressure switch.

Verify there is not a siphon problem.

Press STOP twice to clear the display. The machine will drain for 3 minutes before unlocking the door.

Unplug washer or disconnect power.

Verify wire harness connections to inlet valves, pressure switch, drain pump and Central Control Unit (CCU).

Check all hoses for possible leaks.

Plug in washer or reconnect power

Verify pressure switch operation.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your washer if water will entering the machine and not siphon out.

FH IS FLASHING ON THE WASHER AND IT HAD STOPPED WORKING ONLY 5 MNUTES INTO ITS CYCLE


Hello,

The FH error code means the computer on the control board didnt detect any water entering the washer..sometimes it doesnt detect the water entering because the filter screens on the water inlet valve are clogged with sediment and water is having a hard time entering the washer.

The filter screens can be checked by turning off water at the faucets and disconnecting the fill hoses from the back of the machine and pop the scrrens out of where the hoses connect at the washer and check for blockage in them. If they are found to be clean check the water coming out of the hoses before connecting them back to the washer...if the screens are clean and water pressure is good out of the hoses the part of the washer called the FLOW METER would need to be replaced

My whirlpool duet washing machine is making s strange hum and appears that the water is entering slower. I've checked the water taps and don't see anything different than before. Any suggestions?


Hello,

In addation to checking the actual taps,also check where the hoses connect to at the rear of the washer for sediment build up in the filter screens...also while hoses are disconnected from the washer while checking the screens also place hoses in bucket and turn on taps and see if good water flow is coming from the hoses/taps. If screens are clear and water flow through hoses is good the water inlet valve the hoses attach to would need to be replaced.

Cold water will not enter machine....hoses are clear and screens are clean


Check the solenoid for the cold water. you can reverse the lines to see if cold water comes out on hot setting. solenoid is where the water lines connect to the machine.

Hot water does not fill in the washer. The spicket has hot water.


There is an obstruction after the shut off to the hot water hose that feeds the washer. Shut off the hot water, disconnect the hot water hose from the washer, and hold the end in the washer tub. Open the hot water shut off. If now water comes out the problem is in the hose. Replace or clear obstruction. Make sure washer at hose end is in place before reconnecting to washer.

If how water flows, inspect the input hose connection to the washer. Some have a screen filter that my be clogged with sediment or other debris. Clean and try again.

If still no hot water, there is likely a problem with the hot water solenoid valve inside the washer itself. You'll have to remove and probably replace the valve or coil (or assembly).

Hot water entering machine is only a trickle. It


Check the filter trap on the back of the washer where the hot water fill hose connects to the inlet valve, you wil have to shut the hot water valve off first, then remove the hose at the washer and inspect the little filter screen thats in the valve where the hose screws onto the washer, it probably has trapped enough sediment to restrict the flow of hot water into the washer.
Good Luck !

Hot water will not enter machine. Screen filter is clean. Cold is OK.


There's no hot water Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally. If you're sure the machine isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests: Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on. Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct. Is there hot water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, completely replace it.

Washing machine doesnt seem to be heating up the water


Hi. Washing machines are dependent on the water supply for their heat. If it isn't getting hot, it's from lack of hot water. Put the machine on a setting requiring only hot water for the initial fill, and start the machine. If the water is at a low or no flow rate, proceed as follows: Unplug the washer, close and disconnect the hose from the hot water faucet. Inspect the inside of the hot water hose; there is usually a screen in the end to catch scale and sediment. If you see anything there, remove the washer and screen, and clean it. Reinstall the hose, and disconnect the hose at the washer end of the hot water hose. Open the faucet, and discharge some water into a bucket. If there is no water, you may have a plumbing issue, so I'd back up to the faucet and check. If you do have water there, inspect the solenoid valve inlet (where the hose connected) for another screen. Clean as before. If debris was found at either location in a sufficient quantity to obstruct your water flow, reconnect the hose, and try to get hot water into the machine again. If no hot water will enter the machine, the issue is probably with the solenoid valve. If you have an electrical test meter, you can test the valve, or replace it. Any appliance parts supply house will have your part.
Best regards, and good luck. --W/D-- Please feel free to rate this solution, and let me know what you find out.

Check to make sure that the filters in the water valves are not clogged up.  Go behind the machine, turn off the water supply and disconnect the hoses on the machine side.  Look inside the water valves and check the filter screens to make sure they're clean.  Get a large bucket and open the water valve to clear out the hoses and make sure you have good water flow coming out of the hoses.  If both of those situations are cleared up, your machine should work properly.
