Hello,
First check the tap to assure that the water is turned on going to the unit yes I know you alread did but i have to write this in anyway getting to the next step have you checked the water valve in your unit? here is a video on how to test the water valve http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Zc6NCTAF1U the test is the same whether you have a top load or a front load washer the only difference is how you acess the valve in a front load unit you would instead remove the top panel and here is another video as well for the front load on the repalcement of the valve http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsRmvJ_wFVc if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped when our chat has fully concluded it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks I await your reply Rick

    hello ollie, here is how to get rid of the suds error in the service manual by the button way To get rid of excessive detergent, place the washer on a RINSE & SPIN cycle, then run it through a normal wash cycle with NO detergent added. You may have to repeat these steps depending on the amount of detergent used note this is only if you know that too much detergent or the wrong type of detergent was used this should clear the suds error other techs have also writen this previously about clearing the suds error on this site click this link http://www.fixya.com/support/t8797262-su... message me back with how you make out with the suds error and is your unit showing you suds or f2 error on your unit? Thanks Rick

I have a Haier HWD1600 washer dryer combo that I am getting an error 2 on. It will not drain the water out and I have not been able to clear it for the past two months


Its a common error,
Error message:Drain error, water can be not drained fully within the required drain time
Reason 1. Pump filter is blocked.
Solution 1. Please open and clean the pump filter. (Filter access door is on the bottom right, at floor level of the washing machine)
Step 1.Push a flat blade screwdriver into the slot on the filter cover and pull it open ,do not use excessive force.(Fig 1).
Step 2.Remove the rubber hose from its clip and stand a suitable container under it, remove the bung to drain the water (Fig 2-3)
Step 3.Replace the bung and fit it back into its clip (Fig 4-5).
Step 4. Unscrew the filter and rinse it under running water, replace it and close the flap(Fig 6-7-8).
Caution:
1. The filter must be in place during operation, ensure it is in place after cleaning to avoid leakage.
2.Place a container under the drain pump filter, to collect any excess water that may come out of the drain pump when the filter is removed.

Reason 2. Drain hose end is higher than 100cm above the floor level.
Solution 2. Please adjust the height of drain hose to 80-100cm above the floor.

Reason 3. Drain hose is blocked or twisted.
Solution 3. Please check and clean the drain hose for blockage.

Reason 4. Drain hose is too long, or water is back filling from waste water pipes.
Solution 4. Remove any extension to the original drain hose.
Ensure the highest part of the drain hose is nearest the washing machine.Check the waste water pipes in the building are clear of any obstructions and flow freely.

Mashine fills with water


check the program dial or settings. Put the machine off. then the water slot should close. If it does not close it is defect and you should ask a tech to replace it, or buy a new machine.

Hi. I have kenmore washer 44052 . when I start the mashine the water it's not coming in. so after maybe 1/2 minut the mashine turn off. what I need to do?


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

Hi my washing mashine wont spin, and code 0E comes up on sreen and start button starts flashing PLEASE HELP THANKS


That is actually DE. (Drain Error) Open the small access door at the bottom left corner of the front panel. Use the small hose to drain the remaining water out of machine. Unscrew the big knob and pull it out to clean out filter. (If filter was clear, replace pump motor.)

I have a hot point washin mashine that does not finish a wash and stopes half way through then lights at front of mashine start flashin


Had this with mine. Cleaned the filter (as decribed elsewhere on this site). Also cleaned the component fto which the drain hose attaches - guess this is the pump. Just unclip the drain hose and the hose going into this pump, and check there is nothing obstructing the pump. The clips are a bit of a fiddle, you might want 2 jubilee clips to replace them. Then ran a "maintenance wash" as per manual (ie a hot wash, no clothes, no detergent). Seems OK now

I have a samsung 7Kg J845 front load washing mechine, when i turn on, water not fills enough ( only water fills couple of seconds after stops flows. the error shows 4E, Then i clean up all mesh filters...


When error message 4E is displayed, you should clean the water hose mesh filter. To do this:

1. Turn off the water source to the washing machine.
2. Unscrew the hose from the back of the washing machine.
3. With a pair of pliers, gently pull out the mesh filter from the end of the hose and rinse it under water until clean. Also clean the inside and outside of the threaded connector.
4. Push the filter back into place.
5. Screw the hose back onto the washing machine.
6. Turn on the faucet and make sure the connections are watertight.


Also, please check the following:
• Make sure the source water faucet is turned on.
• Check the water pressure.

Miele leak when switched on for wash, from filter unit front LHS bottom of machince


The leaks in a washing machine could be coming from many different places in the washer.

The first place you need to check is behind the washer, check the two fill hoses and the water mixing valve.

The next thing to do is to remove the front panel, set the washer on the regular cycle and turn it on to start filling.

Use a drop light and check all the hoses under the washer as the washer is filling. Make sure to keep your hands away from any moving parts.

If the hoses are ok, check the pump for leaks. When the bearings in the pump wear out, that is when the pump will get noisy and that could cause your Maytag top load washing machine water leaks.

Another place that the washer could leak water from, is the stem & seal on the holding tank. When washer leaks water from the stem & seal, the water leaks down the center of the transmission.

When the stem & seal need to be replace, the tub bearing has to be replace at the same time. This is an expensive repair if you have to pay someone to do it. If you do it yourself it will cost you about $110
