Washer will not fill


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you are having trouble with your Electrolux washer not filling with water. Here are a couple of suggestions you can try.

    1)Check to make sure that the water supply is adequate in the area your washer is. Check another faucet in your home. Wait until the water supply and pressure increase.

    2)Make sure that both the hot and cold faucets are completely open.

    3)Check to make sure that the hot and cold water inlet hoses are not kinked.

    4)Lastly, make sure the water pressure is at least 30 psi. Try to avoid using water elsewhere in your home while your washer is filling.

    I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully.

    -Best Regards-

Hot water connected but does not fill into the drum? The machine will provide us with a cold wash but on the warm and hot settings the hot water dies not pull through the connection


Turn off the water valves which supply the water to washer hoses. Switch the hot and cold water supply hoses and tighten. Turn the water valves back on and try to run a wash cycle using cold. If hot water only is entering the wash tub the water supply is ok. If this is the case you can unplug the washer and turn off the water valves. Remove the washer back cover and follow the water connection for the hot water. The water solenoid valve will have two electrical wires connected to it. Interchange the hot water solenoid wires with the cold water solenoid connection. Connect the water supply hoses hot to hot and cold to cold then plug the unit then test the washer on the cold wash. If the problem persists it could be a water hose restriction or the timer circuit could be defective. If you have hot water at the normal pressure purchase a new hot water solenoid valve. With the electrical cord unplugged be sure to restore the correct wire connections on the hot and cold water solenoid. To replace the hot water solenoid remove the hose clamp and hose to replace the old valve. Connect the unit to the water and electrical outlet. Turn on the water and test the unit for leaks being careful not to touch any electrical and moving parts. If all checks ok and the correct temperature work, unplug the unit and reassemble.

HOME MAKER HMWM8000 I have brought this from an old lady who has only used it a handful of times. The spin dry will not work. The water pumps out and everything else works it just wont spin... Any ideas?


Unfortunately, as far as I know there are no spare parts available for Home Maker appliances- they are a cheap Kmart brand, and if they fail under warranty, the machine is replaced. Out of warranty, throw it away. Your problem sounds like either problem with brake motor not releasing, or control board issue- but no parts available. You can try a Google search to see if anyone sells parts, but I wouldn't waste your money calling out a service tech, as they will charge you a call fee and probably tell you it can't be fixed.

Maytag atlantis water valve started leaking when not running


I figured out how to get the encasement (plastic covering) off and get to the water
valve. Successfully changed it, then when I went to turn the waters back on, the hot faucet
began leaking from the know!!! Go figure, I get one problem fixed and now I must deal
with another.

Thank you.

Kenmore washer series 80, Clothes still soapy


If you are getting no water spray during the rinse cycle that would cause the soapy clothes issue.

Are you getting cold water during the wash/rinse cycles? If you have the machine set to warm/warm you may only be getting hot water while the final spin is calling for cold.

If you have cold water available then the timer is not calling for the water spray. The problem is either in the mixing valve or the timer.

Scum (greasy dots) left on clothes


Hi,
Try washing just an old dish towel on the hottest program, with 1 cup of soda crystals only.

Before starting this though, remove the detergent drawer, and clean it in hot soapy water. Spray a general surface cleaner into the drawer appature, and clean out as much as you can reach with a small cloth. Put drawer back and, put 2 tblespoons of soda crystals in the detergent section of the drawer too. Wash on hot.

These are mostly caused by a build up in the dispenser drawer.

Yes. There is a part that allows you to connect the cold water supply to both the hot and cold inlet hoses. It has worked successfully on our 6100 for 8 years or so. I think it was part of the original kit rather than a subsequent purchase - it's a Y-shaped yoke with an inlet connection and two outlets that accept the two hoses feeding the inlets of the machine. From memory i tink the situation is mentioned in the user manual somewhere.
