Good morning. when i set my washing machine to wash, it takes the water but when it must start to wash it drains all the water and say 4E. what does that mean


The first thing to do when you see the NF or 4E error code appear on your Samsung washer:
Step 1 - Remove the unit from power! Be sure the water supply valves on the wall behind your washer are fully open. These 2 water valves must be ALL THE WAY open to provide water to your Samsung washer. Turn them all the way counter-clockwise to be sure. If you have check valves on the wall, make sure they are turned all the way open and parallel with the water supply hoses. If both the water supply valves are fully open, proceed to step 2.
Step 2 - Check to be sure the water supply hoses are not bent, crimped, or kinked. If the hoses are bent, this can prevent water from getting to your washer. Be sure that when you last pushed the washing machine back towards the wall, you did not inadvertently get the water hoses crimped behind the washer, as this happens often. To be sure, get a mirror and a flashlight and look behind your washer without pulling the washer away from the wall. If the water supply hoses are bent or crimped, slide the washer out enough to get your hand down there to get the water supply hoses straight so the water can flow properly. If the water supply hoses are too short, replace them with longer water supply hoses so the water lines do not get bent when you slide it back into place. If the water supply hoses are not crimped or bent, proceed to step 3.
Step 3
- Be sure there is nothing clogged inside the water supply hoses. To check this you need to turn off the water valves that supply water to the washer. Unplug the washing machine from power or turn off the breaker. Slide the washer out far enough to get to the water supply hoses that attach to the back of the washer. Remove the water supply hoses from the back of the washer. (Keep the water supply hoses attached to the water valves on the wall) Be careful as there may be water mesh filters installed in between the water supply hoses and the water inlet valve. If so put these aside and clean if needed. Get a bucket and be sure the water supply hoses are not clogged by slowly opening the water valve one at a time and let the water flow into the bucket. If the water flows freely then the water supply hoses are not clogged. This is to test to be sure the water is flowing properly from the water hoses and valves. If the water does flow as it should from the water supply lines proceed to step 4.
Step 4 - Check where the water hoses were attached to the washer. You will need to pull the washer all the way out so you can get behind it. The part that the water supply hoses screw into on your Samsung washer is the Water Inlet Valve or Valves. Check the water inlet valve to be sure there is nothing clogging or blocking the water from entering. There may be small water mesh filter screens on the water inlet valve that could be clogged, clean if needed. If you do not see anything clogging the water inlet valve or valves, proceed to step 5.
Step 5 - The water inlet valve itself may be clogged internally, have a loose electrical wiring connection, or the solenoids in the water inlet valve are not operational. If you suspect the water inlet valve is faulty or has a loose connection, you will need to open the washer up to gain access to the valve. Remove power first. Check to be sure that the wiring harness is connected to the water inlet valves. Be sure it is secure and not loose. If the wire connection is attached to the water inlet valve, you may have a bad or faulty solenoid in the water valve or valves. At this point you could test them with a multimeter or simply replace it or both.
NOTE: SOME Samsung washing machines have 2 water inlet valves, 1 for COLD water and 1 for HOT water. Other Samsung washers have a hot and cold water inlet valve as one part.

Tip

LG Washing machine IE error code Solutions


An IE error code will appear if the washer has not filled with water in approximately 8 minutes.

Are the water valves opened completely?

If an IE error code appears on the washer, check to make sure both hot and cold-water taps are open completely. After both valves have been opened, unplug the washer for 10 seconds and retry the wash cycle.

Are the inlet hose filters clogged?

There are filters on the inlet hose connections of the washing machine. They are intended to filter away mineral deposits from hard water and other debris from getting into the unit. If clogged, water will not flow through these filters into the washer. Turn off both the hot and cold water taps, disconnect the inlet hoses from the back of the washing machine, and clean the inlet filters gently but thoroughly.

Are the inlet hoses attached properly?

If the inlet hoses are not attached to the machine correctly, it will prevent proper water flow to the washer. Turn off the hot and cold water supply then disconnect and reconnect the inlet hoses. Ensure that they are threaded properly. After the hoses have been reconnected, open the water taps completely, check for leaks, and unplug the washer for 10 seconds and retry the wash cycle.

NOTE: The inlet filters are inside the hose connections on the back of the washer. Because of their small size, take care when removing and cleaning the inlet filters so that they do not break.

My washer is flashing LF


LF error code indicates that there is a water supply problem.

Are both the hot and cold water faucets turned on? Turn on the water. Check the household faucets to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Completely open both faucets for proper fill.

NOTE: Both hot and cold water must be connected to the washer and turned on. The washer will not properly operate with only one incoming source of water.

Are the water inlet hoses kinked? Straighten the water inlet hoses.

Are the water inlet valve screens on the washer clogged? Turn off the water and remove inlet hoses from the inlet valves in the back of the washer. Inside the inlet valves are screens. Remove any accumulated film or particles from the screens. Reinstall hoses, turn on water, and check for leaks. See the Installation Instructions for details.

10_8_2011_2_15_30_pm.jpg

Is the water pressure less than 10 psi? If the water pressure is too low, the washer may not properly operate. To find out your exact pounds-per-square-inch (psi) value, contact your local water utility company.

Is the drain hose extending more than 8" (20.3 cm) into the drainpipe? The drain hose may be too far inside the drainpipe (standpipe) or laundry tub. Drained water can siphon back into the washer if the drain hose extends too far. Make sure the drain hose does not extend more than 8" (20.3 cm) into the drainpipe or laundry tub. Using the U-shaped drain hose form as described in the Installation Instructions will provide the appropriate length of drain hose in the drainpipe or laundry tub.

Error code nf


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

The Error code "nf" is No Fill. Turn off the water at the wall connection and remove your fill hoses at the washer. Inside the inlet to the water valve there are inlet screens. Use a thin knife blade or a scribe on the outside of the screens and remove them. Wash them under slowly running water while rubbing them with your fingers to clean them off. After cleaning reinstall the screens and connect your hoses to the washer.
Next remove the hoses at the wall faucett / hose bibb and check for inlet screens in the hoses. If there are inlet screens in the hoses at the wall connection remove them and clean them. Otherwise reconnect the hoses.. turn on the water... check for leaks and test your machine for proper filling. If it still does not fill or you get the nf code again you most likely have a bad inlet water valve. Either the diaphragm is stuck or... one of the water valve solenoids have failed. The solenoids and water valve assemblies are NOT repairable. IF they fail the only remedy is replacement. Solenoids will read resistance with a meter. The resistance should be the same for both soloenoids. If either one of them reads open the water valve must be replaced.

If the steps above do resolve your problem, respond here and I will help you at that time.

I have the Kenmore Oasis Elite Top Loader and I am almost always getting a LF reading on the washer. It never completes a full load. What does LF mean?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

LF = Long Fill

This is caused by either low water pressure or dirty inlet water valve screens. Turn off the water at the wall connection and remove the water hoses at the washer connection. (NOTE hot and cold installed positions) Use a thin knife blade on the outside of the inlet screens and lift them out of the water valve. Wash them under slow running water by rubbing your fingers on both sides of the screen. Once the screens are clean reinstall them in the inlet water valve. Re-connect the washer fill hoses. Just for grins... check the wall connection of the water hoses to make sure there are not HOSE screens at the wall end of the hoses.

(As a retailer of home laundry equipment we always installed fill hose water screens at the wall connections due to the local water supply having bouts of micro debris.)
You can clean the washer screens but if the installer also added at the wall connection hose screens you may still have the problem of a slow fill. Just check.

If after doing the above and you know you have good water pressure you may have a problem with the inlet water valve itself in that debris has got past the inlet screens and blocked the diaphragm passage. IF this has happened the only fix it to replace then inlet water valve.

When iput washing on it seems that the hotwater isnt hot the pipes are on ive checked


Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally. If you're sure the machine isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests: Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on.Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct.Is there hot water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, completely replace the Valve.

I have a ge washer wpsr3120w0aa that leaks water when rinsing


Servicing Water Inlet ValvesIf the washer won't fill or fills very slowly, if it overfills, or if the water is the wrong temperature, the water inlet valves could be faulty. These components are easy to locate and very easy to replace, at little cost. When you suspect an inlet valve is faulty, first check to make sure the water faucets are fully turned on and properly connected to the hot and cold inlets of the valves. Then check the screens in the valves; if they're clogged, clean or replace them. If water doesn't enter the tub, set the temperature control to the HOT setting. If there is no water, set the control to the WARM setting. If all that comes out is cold water, the hot-water inlet valve is faulty. Reverse the procedure to test the cold-water valve, setting the control first on COLD and then on WARM. If the tub overfills, unplug the washer. If water still flows into the tub, the valve is stuck open. In any of these cases, the valves should probably be replaced. To check the valve assembly:


how-to-repair-a-washing-machine-2.jpg
©2006 Publications International, Ltd.
If an inlet valve is faulty, check the water connection and the
valve screens. Try gently tapping the solenoids;
if this doesn't work, replace the inlet valve assembly.

Step 1: Remove the back service panel and disconnect the hot-water and cold-water hoses to the valves.

Step 2: Remove the hoses connected to the valves inside the cabinet. Also disconnect the wires from the terminals. Back out the screws holding the valves to the machine. The inlet valves have solenoids (a coil of wire that carries a current) inside the housing. These can be tested, but chances are the valves are simply worn out.

Step 3: Tap the solenoids with a screwdriver handle. If this doesn't work, replace the entire inlet valve assembly. Repairs usually cost more than a new part. Make sure the replacement valve assembly is exactly the same type as the old one. Install it in reverse order of the way you disconnected the old one.

Troubleshooting Water Leaks

Water leaks in a washer are often difficult to trace. There are many possibilities to look for. The problem could be a loose connection, a broken hose, a cracked component, or a defective seal. It could also be a hole in the tub. If a hole in the tub is the problem, it's usually best to replace the washer.

Most leaks can be eliminated by tightening water connections and replacing deteriorated components. To stop a leak:

Step 1: Check the lid seal. If faulty, replace with a new gasket.

Step 2: Check the hoses at faucet connections. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

Step 3: Check the hoses at water valve connections. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

Step 4: Check the drain hoses. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

Step 5: Check the inlet nozzles. Tighten connections or replace nozzles.

Step 6: Check the splash guard. Tighten connections or replace.

Step 7: Check any plastic valve. Tighten connections or replace.

Step 8: Check the outlet hose to drain. Tighten connections or replace hose.

Step 9: Check the water pump, using the procedures that follow.

Error code F20 pops up after turning on the burners. I have turned the breakers off and reset the clock numerous times and even unpluged the the cord and reset everything but nothing works. The appliance...


An F20 or FH error code indicates a water supply problem. Here are some common issues:
  • Both hot and cold water must be connected and turned on
  • Water inlet hoses kinked
  • Water inlet valve screen clogged
  • Water pressure less than 10 psi
  • Not using HE High Efficiency detergent
  • Flood-preventing devices that shut off the water to the washer

Are both the hot and cold water faucets turned on? Turn on the water. Check the household faucets to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Make sure to open both faucets completely for proper fill.
NOTE: Both hot and cold water must be connected to the washer supply and turned on. The washer will not properly operate with only one incoming source of water. The water valve inside the machine needs to have the "pressure" from both attached hoses in order for the washer to complete the cycle.
If a cold water wash is selected, the washer is designed to add hot water to keep the temperature optimal for cold wash performance (75°F +/-10°).If you want to save energy by not connecting to the hot water line (or only have access to a cold water line if connected in a garage, etc.), purchase a "Y-connector" and an extra inlet hose to connect the hoses to both sides of the water valve.
NOTE: If you choose to connect only to cold water, wash performance may be affected.
Are the water inlet hoses kinked? Straighten the water inlet hoses.
Are the water inlet valve screens on the washer clogged? Turn off the water and remove inlet hoses from the inlet valves in the back of the washer. Inside the inlet valves are screens. Remove any accumulated film or particles from the screens. Reinstall hoses, turn on water, and check for leaks. See the Installation Instructions for details.
Is the water pressure less than 10 psi? If the water pressure is too low, the washer may not properly operate. To find out your exact pounds-per-square-inch (psi) value, contact your local water utility company.
Are you using HE High Efficiency detergent? Use only HE High Efficiency detergent. Using non-HE detergent, or more than the manufacturer's recommended amount of detergent, can cause excessive suds. The excess suds can prevent the washer from detecting the incoming water.
Concentrated detergents labeled 2x and higher will require a small amount of detergent based on load size. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations.
Are you using flood-preventing devices that can shut off the water to the washer?
These hoses have a valve inside that will close if the water pressure is higher than two gallons per minute; this will shut off the water to the washer. If one of these hoses becomes loose, the water flow through the hose will increase and close the valve inside the hose, which will shut off water to the washer to prevent a possible leak or flood. If the hose is not loose, try taking the hoses back to the store for a replacement set.

Removing the Error To remove the error display, press Pause/Cancel twice.
If Pause/Cancel does not work:
Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTES:
On some washers, when the washer is started for the first time after this error code, it will begin to drain. You will not be able to pause or cancel the cycle for about 8 minutes while it drains. This is normal.
If the error remains on the display, and all of the other conditions above have been checked, call for service.
