You probably have sediment clogged in the inlet hoses and/or screens in the water inlet valve of the washer. First, turn off your water taps in the back of the washer. Disconnect the hoses one at a time and insert them in the wash tub. Turn the water taps back on to see if you are getting water through the lines. If not, you will need to remove the hoses and flush them out. If the hoses appear fine, inspect the sediment screens on your water inlet valve (this is where the hoses connect to). You can use cotton swabs to remove most sediment. If you cannot get the screens to clear and/or if sediment has gotten inside the water inlet valve, you will probably have to replace it. Try flushing the lines and cleaning the sediment screens, first, though. I hope this helps you.

Can you tell me how much water a Lemair XQB22 uses per wash

Hi, depending on where you live (such as an apartment, house, or the kind of water company you have. The easiest thing to do, I would think, would be to make sure nothing in your house is using water. Check your water meter, run your washing machine, then go back out and see the difference on your meter. Depending on your washer, different "soil" levels will use more or less water. Hope this helped

Hi my washing machine samsung WA10U3 top load. After wash always filter check. Why?

because the function of filter is to block the small particles or dirty things including grease or oil etc., before disposing the water, and to avoid the clogging of floor drain and even sewage line. And after you used it you should check the filter if theres a some dirt, and grease or oil to clean up to avoid clogging and unclean water from your washing machine

My washing machine is displaying the letters "nd",

ND is no drain error code for the FAV6800A and most Maytag machines.

Is there water in the Wash Basket. If not this could be a stuck Pressure Switch. If there is water in the Wash Basket then there could be a Drain Pump issue/Drain Line clog.

If you want to DIY I can help you.

Water was turned off to house to fix a plumbing problem. now the washing machine will not work. the water will not pass through the hoses.

take your lines off and check your screens in the back of the water inlet valve,, then with the hoses off hold them in a bucket and turn them on, this will get rid of all the dirt and things in the lines,, the screens will be where your hoses hook up on the back of the unit

Display says error

I have give the same solution in other post, here it is : 
usually problem with semi auto washing machine is on the sensors , exactly in the water level sensor, please check the hose that connected to water level sensor, make sure no dirt blocking or clogging the hose. also you can clean the tube under the pulsator, usually there is many dirt blocking the hose line.
the problem is in the hose leading to the water level sensor, if there is no dirt and looks normal, water level sensor must be replaced

Leaking under ground pipe what water company says..........cant find a leak . grounds not wet any where no water under the house .how can i find the leak with out a plumber? cant afford

this sounds like a joint is leaking just but not enough for the water to surface try digging the main line from the meter to the house be careful not to damage any lines under the ground and mind any gas and electric lines. once you find the water line out of the meter trace it to the house as soon as you start digging into mud your gitting close to the leak. once found remove dirt so that repairs can be made

Whrilpool washing machine will not fill

May I first suggest that you turn both the hot and cold water off to your washer and check the screens installed in the back of the machine. A lot of times dirt and debris can clog the supply lines. After you check the supply lines, turn the water on with the hoses in a bucket. This will make sure that you are getting water to the machine. Replace the lines, and turn the supplies back on. If you are still not getting any water, you are looking at a bad water solenoid.
