SOURCE: washing machine no cold water

chnge your water valve or your cold water hose. something could be blocking up your hose. also when you ask machine for cold water does the machine hum? if so check to see if cold water is on. if the water is on then replace your water valve.

With no clothes in the washer start a program. The washe level is below the door glass. the rinse level comes up 3 cm on the glass. The washer is designed to be water efficent. If you are not getting water this high, look at the pressure switch hose, maybe it is restricted and causing the pressure to be held in the washer.

SOURCE: Washer Fills HOT WATER ONLY

If you checked the screens at the water inlet valve and they were not clogged, then you probably have a defective water inlet valve and will have to replace it. Hope this helped.

SOURCE: After initial start up on hot water , it reverts

It's most likely the water inlet valve solenoids. Be sure to unplug the machine. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad solenoid. Also check the small metal screens inside the openings on the water inlet valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

SOURCE: I have the LG WM1832cw

Is resistance between each terminal of INLET
VALVE ASSEMBLY 0.8~1.2 kω? If not replace it.
Is the inlet valve filter clogged?
Clean the filter.
Verify the voltage of the inlet valve connector is
120 V AC. No voltage? Check electrical connection.
Replace the MAIN PWB ASSEMBLY.
I have an LG training manual which might not be the exact one you need but it gives an idea what to look for.

Cold water inlet valve is pulsing letting the water in. Hence the machine faults


YOU CAN CHECK THE VALVE WITH A METER FOR OHMS AND FOR PROPER VOLTAGE AT THE COILS. OR IT MAY BE CLOGGED WITH HARDWATER DEPOSITS ETC

Shaing machine wont fill up ?


That is Error code 49
49.(00110001) Cold Valve Coil Faulty
The Motor Control Module has measured a voltage from the valve diagnostic circuit that indicates the cold valve is faulty. The most likely cause is that the valve harness has not been connected correctly or the valve is open circuit. See fault 48 for service procedure.
48. (00110000) Hot and Cold Valve Coil Faulty
The Motor Controller module has measured voltages from the valve diagnostic circuit that
indicate both the hot and cold valves are faulty. The most likely cause is that the valve harnesses have not been connected correctly or the valve is open circuit.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: Check the valve harnesses are correctly fastened to the valves or the
pins are not bent backwards.
Secondary Source: Water Valves.
Action: Check the valve coils are not faulty (open circuit).
Tertiary Source: Motor Controller module.
Action: Replace the Motor Controller module.

My smart drive GW 509 au does not fill up with water. Water goes in but only for 10 seconds and stops. Machine then bips with some error.


Please check the pressure on the inlet valve and see if the flow is good, if this is low on the inlet then check your tap and water line. Otherwise check the INLET filter, check the command to the inlet valve and if the inlet is timed out then there is fault on the program controller unit.

My washing machine wont take in water i was wanting to chck the pump for a blockage, but have no idea where it is. or do you have any idea what the problem might be thanks


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

There is no pump for pumping water into a washer; filling is done by the pressure of the supply and controlled by valves, one valve for just cold water fill and two independant valves for hot and cold fill.
Are you sure that the water supply hoses are not kinked or squashed? If they are not and yours is just cold fill then the valve is possibly malfunctioning, the control PCB is faulty or there could be a wiring fault.
If it is hot and cold and neither are filling, it could be the control PCB is faulty or there could be a wiring fault again.
Once you have confirmed that the water supply IS actually available (turn off the taps, unscrew the hoses from the washer then turn each tap on a little and gently until some water comes out. If it does screw them back. If it doesn't find out why!) you will need to call a service engineer ;-0(
Sorry cannot be of more assistance.

Maytag Performa wont fill hot water


The water fill valve - The water fill valve is a mechanical and electrical part, the coils on the valve need electricity to mechanically open the valve to allow the water to flow into the washer....myth....the washer pumps water into itself...no, it does not. The fill valve opens and the house water pressure pushes the water into the washing machine.
No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can test a fill valve live for 120 volts, power to a fill valve coil and no fill = a bad fill valve. You can also test the coils for continuity, no continuity = a bad fill valve. Some Maytag washers have a fuse in the fill valve circuit, if this fuse let go the washer will not fill. Fill valves can also from time to time stick open and not stop filling. If you have to shut off the fill valves to stop the water from filling in the washer, you have a bad fill valve and you will have to replace it.

The machine does not work


Ok this fault is telling me you have a faulty RPS(Rotor Positioning Sensor) in this machine. The RPS sensor is located in the motor Stator. To replace you need to remove the motor rotor then the motor Stator. you want to be careful with this part when fitting it as they can break.

Please rate my advice.

Cheers

Water is not filling up.


turn off water
disconnect fill hose from tap
examine screen inside hose end for 'muck' blockage
clean screen
reconnect hose
test washer
if no fill
replace water solenoid valve

note: cold water valve fails first, it gets most use,
if only using cold water, you can simply swap the hot and cold hoses at the tap, and swap the hot and cold electrical connectors on the solenoid valves, the hot solenoid is no the cold one and the washer can be used, cold only, for about as long as it has operated thus far..
