You will need to replace the "water inlet valve" on the machine. Here is a link to the part that will have to be special ordered.

My Profile Harmony wont fill. I have done the start up test and when it gets to checking water system it wont go any further. I have unpluged it and checked hoses and screens but it wont fill. Now what?...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
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. Sorry but it needs a service call ;-0(
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

Bosch WF2001 washes only 30 degrees programmes


We had this problem and it turned out in our case that the hot water inlet filter was blocked. The pump wasn't receiving any hot water into the machine so wouldn't start on anything except a cold (30degree) wash.

We turned off the the hot water tap on the plumbing at the back, disconnected the inlet pipe from the machine, then put the end of the pipe in a bucket and turned the water back on, and saw loads of sediment spurted out.

We ran it until we'd filled the bucket, then turned the tap off, emptied the bucket down the drain, then disconnected the hose from the plumbing and cleaned the hose separately (there's a gauze at the plumbing end of the hose so make sure that's clean).

Then get some pliers and where the hose attatches to the machine there's a filter that you can pull out. Clean this out. In our case this was completely blocked with limescale sediment etc.

Reconnect everything, check it's all tightly fastened etc. then turn the tap on the plumbing back on - turn it on to a hot wash, press start ...and in our case it all worked a dream again.

All this info is in the manual if you've got one, but I thought I'd write it out in case you've got this problem and don't have the manual.

Ahhhhh... cleeean washing again! Hope this works for you. Happy go laundry!

When the water has reached it's proper level, the hot water turns off, but the cold water keeps filling until the water overflows the basket


Try this. With the wash tub empty, start to fill with water. Without turning washer off, unplug the washer from wall.

If water filling stops (hot and cold), then you are looking at a bad timer assembly. Replacement isn't that hard, parts can be difficult to find though.

If water continues to fill, your valve body / solenoid assembly is likely full of lime-scale. Easily replaced.

The wm does not accept cold water. I put it on cold cycle and it does not work the water line is fine... what could be the problem ?


Why has nobody mentioned the fact that if you “draw off” hot water using a tap beside the washing machine you can get “instant” hot water to your hot-fill. I have been doing this for years – now that all my hot water is heated by a crabon-neutral energy source (either wood or solar) I feel it is even more energy efficient.
As for water consumption, my house has a secondary return pipe on the hot water circuit with a temperature sensor fitted to the pump so that it only switches on when you turn a hot water tap on – you than turn the tap off, wait 5-10 minutes while the water circulates, then turn it on again, by which time the hot water only has ashort distance to travel and you don’t waster much down the drain.
However, I have been interested to read about the pros of cold fill only, especially the arguments about such a small volume of water being used anyway and the possibly improved wash performance? Also, I was dismayed to read that washing machines with hot and cold fill don’t use the hot wate very efficiently.
So would I be better off going for a hot and cold machine while they’re still available or going for a high-efficiency cold fill only machine? I am still minded to get an LG with hot and cold fill… comments please?

I have an LG washing machine model WF-T755A After washing completed, if water not turned off at taps, the unit slowly fills up with water. The last time causing it to overflow and flood the floor


Water inlet valve is not sealing off 100%. Replace inlet valve (the part where the hose attached to the machine). didn't find that exact model listed so couldn't give you a part number. Usually LG's have a separate valve for the cold and the hot. If you turn off one valve where hoses connect to household plumbing you should be able to figure out if it is the hot or cold. (most often it is the cold) Leave both valves off when not using washer until fixed. (note: usually on LG washers, if you have unit connected to power and the door closed, if it fills with water as your machine did, the water level switch will trip and automatically pump the water out, even if washer is not in use and the power is "off".)
