Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Providing that you have checked the actual supply is OK- tap on, no kink or squashed hose AND you have ensured the fine filter inside the machine's inlet port is clean, it's a machine fault.
This is symptomatic of failed water control valve -its physical fail/no power position is closed. It needs replacing! Service call ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

Recently had a leak in our water pipe between mains and house.We had the pipe replaced.Then the washing machine wouldn't fill so we replaced solenoid valve-it works now. The dishwasher won't fill now


when the pipe was repaired , there is every possibility that dirt got into the pipe and will affect all solenoid operations and taps
remove all hoses and flush the pipe out well

I have a simpson 9.5 kg washing machine an ezi you put powder in and it wont fill you turn the settings to fill and it wont work any ideas i was working fine then now it wont fill up


Power off the machine. Close your wall faucet which brings water into the machine. Unscrew the nut, hold a bag or bucket to collect water coming in from the wall, gently open the water control to see if water flows - the flow should be in good pressure. If it is good, close valve; now open the other end of the pipe going into your machine. You will see a fine filter connected to your machine; clean this out if clogged with an old toothbrush; clean out your pipe too. Refit carefully both nuts, without cross-threading; open the wall faucet to check for leaks. Things should be fine.

sounds like blocked pump or door latch sensor/switch more likely pump blocked.thats normally first to activate in wash cycle.if unsure seek help to locate and check.it ll be either accessable from bottom front of machine or you may need to tip it up as it ll be at bottom of machine.unplug first,and if you pull pipes off pump to access there will be some water.hold waste pipe as low as itll go to release any water left in machine

Cold water Washes


It is normal for the machine to cycle between hot and cold water when filling even if selecting a cold cycle. The reason for this is because even a cold cycle requires the water temperature to be 78F for the soap to break up efficiently.

During the cold months the water in your pipes is probably less than 78F so the machine will need to add some hot water to bring it up to this temperature. Basically, it is adding cold and then hot water to maintain a temperature in the tub of 78F for cold water cycles.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Simpson 175 wont take on hot water


Your water inlet valve is bad on the hot water side and needs to be replaced. It is located right after the supply hose for the hot line behind the back plate
