Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one,( if the washer is hot and cold fill which I suspect it is as you say 'the hoses'!), and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call to confirm that it is not something else ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

Fisher paykel gwl15 squeal while filling


1. Does the squeal go away if you choose a different temperature, eg, a hot wash?
2. Check the strainers/filters where the inlet hoses screw onto the washer:
- turn off water at the wall.
- start a warm wash to release pressure from hoses, then switch off machine.
- remove inlet hoses and inspect for blockage/debris. Then, place hoses directly into where the clothes go then carefully turn the water back on at the wall to check flow.
- Also check strainers/filters at other ends of hoses.
3. If all seems OK, new water valve(s) may be required. The rubber in the water valves can harden over time.

Water overflowing and not cutting off.


The water overflowing problem could be one of three possible problems.
Water fill valve
Pressure level switch
Hose coming from the drum to the pressure switch.
Here is an easy way to check all three.
While the machine is on with water filling up quickly unplug. If water is still going in then replace the water filler valve. (In 20 years i only seen this happen once!)
Open the top panel so you can get to the water level switch. There will be a hose hookup to it.
Make sure there is water in the drum in this test. Disconnect the hose from the level switch. (you can turn off machine for this test) Blow thru the hose and notice if you hear bubbles going in the drum/water. If you do then good. If you dont then the problem was the hose came off the drum. Make sure it is securely attached because sometimes when it spins it might come off. If you do hear bubbles then blow again, pinch hose. Then reconnect to the pressure switch. You create air to the pressure switch. It should now shut the water off at the lowest setting. if it still doesnt shut off replace the pressure level switch. Sometimes i do this trick and it starts working.

this is alot of info, if you need clarifying let me know, i am slowly getting better explaining but will get better later thanks hope this was helpful

SOFTENER DISPENSER DOES NOT WORK


Try to mix the Softner with water half and half if that dont work you may need a new water valve and also try to clean the screen in the water valves if your on a well. Turn the water off and disconnect the hoses and look inside the valves.

Water very slowly fills Whirlpool washer


Check the screens inside the water valve. They get plugged sometimes. Also check both ends of your hoses. When installed most companies put screens or screen (1) in the cold water line at the valve.

My F&P 6.5 kg top load washing machine will not fill with water. The wash cycle seems to start okay but no hot or cold water enters. The solenoids seem to be okay


ok. the most comon problem is the inlet filter in the machine. This is located where the hose connect. Disconnect hose and clean out the filters.
If this does not work check the pressure switch which is connected to the drum with a little hose. disconnect that hose and see if it will fill then. Check for current over your water inlet valve.
That are the things which can prevent you from starting the machine

Indesit 1200 washer/dryer instructions


probable cause is just poor water flow from outside. switch water off. undo hoses and check not kinked. in each hose, there should be a gauze filter. clean this. look inside the valve spigot and check no dirt buid-up. put hoses in a bucket and check water flow is ok. remove drawer and check holes in top of box are clear
