If the water actually stops running it might be a problem in the internal balancing valves. Some valves will restrict flows of the other water-supply: If there is slow hot water it throttles the cold water, if there is slow cold water it throttles the hot water. It is meant to stop the screaming in the shower if a toilet for example is flushed and the cold water pressure drops. Some but not all valves can be taken apart and cleaned. Turn off both shut off vavles first!
sounds like either the cold water that feeds the other half got shut off, or the mixer in the valve for controlling the water temperature is broken....most likely the water got shut off. better go to the water source and trace the cold water feed pipe ,looking for a shut off valve....it could also be behind the shower panel, then turn or rotate the valve the other way and go test the water to see if you can adjust the temperature now.....if not, then replace your hardware.......in the mean time, you could turn the temperature down on the water heater so that you won't scald yourself in the shower til you have time to fix it properly.
e11 is a water problem filling to slow,you could have a problem with your cold water fill line,clogged sediment in the valve or something like that,when it goes into rinse the machine uses cold water so the clothes won't wrinkle and it sounds like it's filling to slow.
the water valve is bad in the rear area inside the machine,its controlled by electrical solenoids and the valve is stuck open even with the unit shut off,replace the valve combo hot and cold as these dont repair
This should run two showers at once with no problem. If you have a shut off valve on the cold side of the heater, try closing about halfway. This will slow the water flow and the water will have more time to heat up as it pases through the tank. If you dont have a shut off valve, just cut back the hot water valve on your shower and do not use any cold water. If it gets too hot then turn on a little cold water. The object is to slow the speed of the water going through the tank. Tankless heater take a little getting use to but they work great when you know how to treat them. On my shower I turn the hot all the way on until it gets hot and then add a little cold water to bring the temp down. You may have too much water going through too fast to be able to heat it up to what you need. Try this and see how it works.
This is a result of a restriction in any one of several places. Start with the washer off / unplugged from the outlet and shut off the water supply that feeds the washer's water supply hoses. The hot a cold water valves (those that are turned off independently of each other) should require the same number of turns to shut off. If not - one is open more than the other and could be a cause for the slow fill. Unscrew the hot AND cold water hose connectors from the washer. Inspect the inside of the connector to ensure there is nothing obstructing the hose itself. Make sure the rubber washer is seated properly, too. Check the entire length of both hoses to be sure there are no kinks or evidence of crushing. Also look for stretched circumference hose that indicate it could breakat any time. Damaged hoses should be replaced promptly to minimize chances of flooding should a hose burst. Hold the ends of the hoses inside the wash machine in such a way that splashing is reduced. Open the water supply and determine if the flow of water is the same or different for the hot and cold water. If the same, the problem is at / in the washer. If unequal flows are detected (with both valves opened the same amount) , the issue is probably with cold water supply or shut off valve. You'll probably have to call a plumber if the difference in flow bothers you that much.
If the flow is the same, it could be a problem with the water inlet or water supply solenoid inside the washer itself. Many washers have a strainer or filter inside the water supply connections. Check yours for foreign objects, debris or build up and clear any found.
Reassemble and and make sure connections are tight (do not use a wrench to tighten) enough to prevent leaking and turn of water supply. Operate the washer and compare cold and hot water flow while filling the tub. If still unequal, you'll have to either call for repair or look further for a restriction in the solenoid valve or deeper inside the machine if it bothers you that much or is painfully slow to fill.
I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!
All washing machines have a solenoid valve for turning on and shutting off the water coming in, one for the hot water and one for cold. It sounds like one of them has a slow leak.
Try shutting off the cold water supply to the machine for a day and see if the tub fills with water. Next try shutting off the hot water supply and leaving the cold supply on. This will tell you which valve is leaking.
This solenoid valve is something you can buy from an appliance parts company. In some cases, someone handy may even be able to disassemble it and replace a washer that is leaking.
Until it is repaired, you can get by with shutting off the water supply when you are not using the machine or shutting off the supply that is leaking. For example, if it's the hot water supply valve that is leaking, just shut off the hot and do only cold water washing.
