Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Although the water flows easily from the laundry faucet through the hose connected to the washer, the hot water only trickles in when the hose is connected to the washing machine.

No hot water in the hot cycle


You haven't given a specific model, but there are a couple of general things that will help narrow it down:
  1. Is there hot water at the wall? There should be a hot water and a cold water hose connection on the wall. Turn the valves off and disconnect one (or both), being careful for possible spray when you first loosen. You will likely want a bucket or bowl. Turn on one faucet, gently, at a time, verify that water flows. If you have the space and a deeper bucket to avoid a puddle, open each valve up fully to make sure you get full flow, and not just at trickle. Does one of the hoses actually put out hot water? If not, then there may be a routing problem for the hoses, or some issue with the heater. If so, you have a source.
  2. If you have hot water at the wall, do you have it at the back of the unit? The hoses usually screw on at the back wall of the washer. Re-attach the hose to the hot wall spigot, and detach (have bucket ready again) at the washer back wall. Can you still get a solid flow of hot water out that end? If not, the hose is likely clogged - hot water lines, especially in older houses, can pick up corrosion gack from the pipes and from the water heater, along with various sediment, and that will tend to sit at one end or the other of the hose, since the majority of time the washer isn't running, and the sediment settles to a low spot. If theres's poor flow, you can detach the hose and try to clean it out, or just replace it.
  3. Make sure that the hot water from the wall is connected to the hot water inlet on the washer, and cold to cold.
  4. In any case, I'd highly recommend wrapping some plumbers teflon tape around the male threads at either end of the hoses when re-attaching, to make sure you get a good quality seal without having to gorilla-tighten the connection. A drip back in the nether space of the laundry room can turn into a horror of floor rot if it's not obvious that it's happening.
  5. if all the above show that hot water is getting to the machine, then it's time to look into specific guides for your model to troubleshoot the internal valve actuation. You may also want to look at the switch / knob that sets the water temp. See if it seems to click distinctly for hot water mode, the same as it does for other modes. if not, then the switch may not be engaging to tell the valve that it's supposed to switch to hot input (the default is likely cold)

    Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Hello Penny Kelly - Typically when the water temperatures are wrong, this is usually due to the hoses being connected to the wrong valves. Usually error code E70 or E76 will appear. However, you have already checked the hoses to make sure they are on the correct faucet, connected to the correct valve and that the hose has no kinks or restrictions. I would suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately since the temperature sensor may be faulty.

My washer is flashing LF


LF error code indicates that there is a water supply problem.

Are both the hot and cold water faucets turned on? Turn on the water. Check the household faucets to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Completely open both faucets for proper fill.

NOTE: Both hot and cold water must be connected to the washer and turned on. The washer will not properly operate with only one incoming source of water.

Are the water inlet hoses kinked? Straighten the water inlet hoses.

Are the water inlet valve screens on the washer clogged? Turn off the water and remove inlet hoses from the inlet valves in the back of the washer. Inside the inlet valves are screens. Remove any accumulated film or particles from the screens. Reinstall hoses, turn on water, and check for leaks. See the Installation Instructions for details.

Is the water pressure less than 10 psi? If the water pressure is too low, the washer may not properly operate. To find out your exact pounds-per-square-inch (psi) value, contact your local water utility company.

Is the drain hose extending more than 8" (20.3 cm) into the drainpipe? The drain hose may be too far inside the drainpipe (standpipe) or laundry tub. Drained water can siphon back into the washer if the drain hose extends too far. Make sure the drain hose does not extend more than 8" (20.3 cm) into the drainpipe or laundry tub. Using the U-shaped drain hose form as described in the Installation Instructions will provide the appropriate length of drain hose in the drainpipe or laundry tub.

I have a Kenmore 500 series washing machine. The cold water just trickles out but the hot is fine. I have replaced the fill valve, but the problems persists. Any help would be appreciated.


Hello,

Having replaced the valve i would suspect the cold water for what ever reason is not getting to the valve from the faucet..if you have not already done so remove cold water hose and see how much water is coming from it when its not connected to the washer. If your using the "aqua flow-flood stop" hoses thats going to be the problem..the internal stopper in the hose has failed and hardly no water coming through the hose.

Is the water pressure less than 10 psi?
If the water pressure is too low, the washer may not properly operate. To find out your exact pounds-per-square-inch (psi) value, contact your local water utility company.

Is the drain hose extending more than 8" (20.3 cm) into the drainpipe?
The drain hose may be too far inside the drainpipe (standpipe) or laundry tub. Drained water can siphon back into the washer if the drain hose extends too far. Make sure the drain hose does not extend more than 8" (20.3 cm) into the drainpipe or laundry tub. Using the U-shaped drain hose form as described in the Installation Instructions will provide the appropriate length of drain hose in the drainpipe or laundry tub.

Is the drain hose taped onto the drainpipe? Is the top of the drainpipe covered with tape?
Do not seal the drain hose into the drainpipe with tape. The drain hose should be loose, yet secure. There must be a gap between the drain hose and the drainpipe to allow air to flow. The air gap will break the suction. This will keep water from being continuously sucked out of the machine (siphoning) as it fills.


Is the drainpipe (standpipe) less than the minimum height of 39" (99 cm)?
Make sure the top of the drain is at least 39" (99 cm) high (as measured from the floor). If the drain is below 39" (99 cm), the water will start to flow out of the machine due to gravity. The flow of water can create suction, (siphon) and the water will continue to drain out of the washer.

To remove the error display, press Pause/Cancel once.

If Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
  2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and all of the other questions above have been checked, call for service.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).

Hot water fills very slow(30 MIN OR MORE TO FILL) good water flow from spicket to washer, screens are clear. sewems to be something with the washer its self


Might be a bad inlet valve. To confirm, swap the hot and cold hoses to your washer so that the cold water feeds the hot water connection and the hot water feeds the cold water connection. Turn off both hot and cold water faucets. Set the washer for a warm water wash. Turn on the cold water faucet, and check the flow. Then turn off the cold water faucet, and turn on the hot water faucet and check the flow. If the cold water flow fill slowly, then the problem is with the inlet valve.

It an easy part to obtain from an appliance supply house. To install disconnect the hoses to the back of the machine, and remove the back panel to get access to the valve. Should only take a couple of minutes to remove and install. Hope this helps you.

Cold water trickles into the tub while it is being filled up


The hot and cold water supply hoses that connect the washer from the water supply faucets on the wall to the water connections on the back of the clothes washer usually have filter / sediment screens within there connection fittings at the end of the hoses, these will collect dirt,sand, calcium deposits, etc.,when they trap enough of these materials they will plug up and restrict the flow of water into the clothes washer. Turn off the water faucets at the wall, and you should do this for both hot and cold hoses, disconnect the hoses from the washer and the water faucets, look into the hose ends and pull out the screens and clean them out by running water and what ever you can use to clean them completely!!!!!
Now look inside the water connections on the back of the clothes washer,where you screw the hoses on the washer, and check to see if there are filter screens in there, if there is, remove them and clean out completely also, then reverse the removal process and reconnect the hoses, makeing sure to connect the hot and cold hoses to the right connection on the back of the clothes washer!!
Try filling the washer with water to see if you have corrected the problem.
Make sure hot and cold hoses are correct on the back of the washer!!!!
GOOD LUCK !!!!!!

Hot water entering machine is only a trickle. It


Check the filter trap on the back of the washer where the hot water fill hose connects to the inlet valve, you wil have to shut the hot water valve off first, then remove the hose at the washer and inspect the little filter screen thats in the valve where the hose screws onto the washer, it probably has trapped enough sediment to restrict the flow of hot water into the washer.
Good Luck !

Erratic water flow and temperature from laundry tub faucet..


this is quite possible, the newer units, actually are monitering teh watertemp, as it enters machine, and will either increase or decrease flow of both hot/cold water to maintain what it would consider an optimal temp.. so i would not worry about this issue.
