I have a LG top loading washer. Cold water will not shut off, making it so washer will not shut off. Water still runs after we unplugged the washer.


Close the cold water valve behind the washer, then try a reset. If that doesnt work, the timer may need to be replaced. Depending on your skill level, you could do it yourself.

To reset the washing machine:
  1. Press POWER to turn the washer off.
  2. Unplug the washer from the power outlet. ...
  3. With the power disabled to the washer, press and hold the START/PAUSE button for 5 seconds.
  4. Plug the washer back in, or turn the circuit breaker back on.

My hot point wma30 washing machine just keeps filling with water when switched of and Dior open


Turn off the water where the water comes out the wall. The hot and cold should each have a shut off valve...like your outside water where the hose hooks up. If the valves are frozen try moving them with a little force back and forth to see if you can get them to move. Do not break them. If they won't move then you'll have to find your main line shut off valve to shut off the water to the whole house.

I suggest calling a handy person to help you to shut off the water at the washer and then call a washer repair person to replace the internal washer shut off valve and/or sensor.

Kenmore eco cycle front load washer. error E70 displays and stops washer. What does E70 mean?


You should check the model number of the washer. If the model number starts 417, then the washer was made by Frigidaire. In that case, the E70 error indicates that cold water is not being detected at the washer inlet sensor.

In some cases, this could be due to connecting the hot water line to the cold water inlet (and the cold water to the hot water inlet). Make sure that the cold water shut-off valve is open. Try swapping the water hoses (close the shut-off valves first). Try new hoses; some anti-flood hoses will restrict the water flow if they detect damage. Thus you won't have sufficient water coming into the washer. (You can check this yourself. Turn off the shut-off valves. Disconnect the hoses from the washer and put the ends into a bucket. Then open the shut-off valves and check the water flow.) While you have the hoses off, check for debris in the inlet filters.

If the hoses are fine, you probably have a problem with the washer's inlet valve or the reed switch that measures incoming water. The inlet valve should be replaced if you find that only hot water enters the washer.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number of your washer for more information. It will be on the inside of the door opening (probably at the top).

Water will not turn off


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Water Inlet Valve If the washer is overflowing and power is shut off to the washer, the water inlet valve has failed. Replace it.
Pressure Switch If the washer is overflowing the pressure switch might be defective. The pressure switch is attached to a small tube which is attached to the outer wash tub. As the water level rises the air pressure in the tube increases, once the set water level is reached the pressure switch turns off power to the water inlet valve. Check to be sure the air tube to the pressure switch is clear before replacing the switch.

Low Water Pressure from House Supply If the washer is overflowing the water pressure to the water inlet valve might be too low. The water inlet valve requires a minimum of 20 psi to shut off properly. If the pressure is lower, the valve may not close fully when the power is shut off. This results in the valve leaking water into the washer and causing it to overflow.

Lavamat problems


Most likely, your washer's fill valve is leaking. You can probably find replacement valves. I found the AEG LAV1480 parts at several sites.

If your water pipes to the washer have shut-off valves where the hoses connect, turn the water to off after doing the wash. If they don't have shut off valves, have them installed. It's a cheap way to avoid floods when either the valve or the hoses fail. There are some high-end electronic shut-off valves that include a timer so you won't forget to turn off the water. Two simple 1/4 turn shut-off valve (one for hot, one for cold) are cheaper but you have to turn off the water after you finish the load.

To test the shut-off valves when in the closed position, disconnect the hoses from the washer and put a bucket under them. No water should flow into the bucket beyond the water that was initially in the hoses.

I hope this helps.

Check the water shut off valves behind your washer. Make sure they are full open (turn counter-clockwise).

Turn the shut off valve off (full clockwise). Disconnect the hose and try running it into a bucket from the valve to make sure you have good water flow.

Check the hose from the shut off valve and make sure it's not kinked stopping water flow.

Turn shut off valve off completely...disconnect hose and look at the end that attaches to the washer. Is the metal screen clogged? Look at the water inlet on the washer where hose attaches and make sure there are no obstructions.

No water going in


Hello mariel_black,

If you have good water pressure at the washer source valves I would shut both the Hot and Cold water source supply valves off then remove the water inlet hoses at the back of the washer and inspect the water inlet screens for sediment blockage.
The washer inlet screens look like this;

cdb49e0.jpg

If the above items check OK reconnect washer supply hoses and turn on water supply valves. If we are talking about a FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW washer then I would go into Service Mode Board Output Test page 16 of the Service Manual and turn on the Hot and Cold water valves and see if the machine water inlet solenoids operate and release water into the wash tub. I will summarize how to get into Service Mode and perform the check of the Hot/Cold washer inlet solenoids.

Enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

Press the Delicates key the display will read something like “ot” the lid will lock. Now press Spin Only key this will turn on the cold water valve, do you here water flow into the washer? Press the Spin Only key to shut the cold water valve off.

Now press Normal key, do you here water flow into the washer? Press the Normal key to shut the valve off or the off key to get out of Service Mode. If you don’t hear either Hot/Cold water inlet valve operate then you have a bad solenoid or loss of 120VAC applied to that solenoid valve and more troubleshooting may need to take place and possible replacement of the washer water inlet valve assembly. Post back if you have questions.

Water won't stop filling washing machine.


Hi, Will the water shut off if you turn the timer off or unplug the washer?
If it shuts off when power is turned off to the washer, you need to look into the water level switch. If turning off power to the washer will not stop the water, you need to change the inlet valve.
Please let me know so I can assist you further.

Thanks

Water will not shut off.


1st: check to see if the hose that the water comes out when it drains is higher than the water level in the washer.

2nd: It could be the plastic line that is inside of the washer that determines the water level.

Check the hose at the back to see if it's higher first.
