You may have a simple problem known as "siphoning". Have you checked your installation/ In particular, the drain hose? the following link explains how to check and correct a siphoning problem with a washer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

Usually when a washer drains as it tries to fill, its a drainage problem of some type. You may have a simple problem that is easily remedied. You may not require anything, but pulling the drain hose up out of the standpipe and repositioning it to ensure there is a proper air gap for drainage. I hope this helps you.

I have a silver Inesit WIDL 126 S washer dryer. Whenever the wash cycle completes, it then lets in some water from the inlet. Then stops. I tried draining it, it drains, then lets in water from the inlet,...


A device called a solenoid open and closes when activated by the control board (circuit controller). If debris collects inside of the chamber when it is open or closing, it can leak or simply shut down. This device will open upon command and allow water to enter or exit. It takes its orders from the command center and if it is damaged, plugged, or no longer capable of switiching on and off, it needs replacement.

Washing marchine will fill with water and then drain off


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

When starting a wash cycle the water never fills up and therefore doesn't wash, just keeps "rinsing"

The slow inlet flow and clogged draining can slower the time of the wash and so both the inlet and outlet must be cleaned and flushed.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor.

Yes! you are already having the answer. check your water inlet flow. Clean the strainer at the machine water hose connecting end.

Check the drain filter also. Refer user guide for instructions on cleaning.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 Washer Dryer not drying.


Hi, I think the problem you have is with the cold water inlet valve? When your machine dries it uses a small amount of water at high pressure through a restricter fitted in the water inlet valve. These break down letting in to much water which cannot evaporate quick enough for it to pump out causing the washing to become wetter than after the wash/spin cycle. The only way of solving this is to replace th tree way water inlet valve. But make sure that the pump is working ok first and that there is nothing in the sump hose trap which is located underneath the washing machine out the bottom of the tub.
Good luck.................

WF860 drum filling with water


Normally I would think that the problem is with the drain system (faulty pump or clogged lines), but you told me that also "When the washing machine is not bein.g used the drum slowly starts to fill with water!!" therefor I think it can be a dafective inlet valve or a faulty control assembly.
In either case, you will need a technician to fix this.
