WMA 42 Continues to fill

When not in use the drum fills with a little water. I have turned off the supply of water to see if this cured the problem and it did. So the water is obviously coming from the fill supply. But how do I get at the inlet valves to clean or replace.

The cold water continues to fill the tub and not shut off


There is a pressure switch fitted to all washing machines.basically a tube outside the drum that has air inside it which responds to water going into the drum.as the air in the tube compresses it activates the switch to shut off the water and sends a new command to controller board to turn the drum and start washing.when it doesn't switch off tells me that the tube has too much water in it and won't shut off supply.you can locate the tube and empty it so it just has air in it reconnect and see if that fixes it.if it doesn't then next place to look is the switch itself and controller board.

Water continues to fill into the washer drum on the spin cycle.


Hi

You could have a stuck solenoid valve
Try this: Set the water temp on cold. Turn on only the hot water.
Does hot water try and fill the drum?
If so then there is a problem with the hot solenoid.

Next set the water on hot. Turn on only the cold water. Does cold water try and fill the drum ?
If so then there is a problem with the cold solenoid.

Washer does not fill with water but motor continues to turns drum


Yes the drum will always spin when filling it is called stirring, however, you will find you need to replace the (I assume) cold inlet valve, or you could put the cold hose on the hot valve and do a hot wash, this means it would fill with cold water, however some machines do have a sensor for sensing water temp, if this is so the machine will beep, and it may take some time to fill. :)

WFD 2460 will not start wash cycle after it has filled with water


Isolate power and water supply and gain access to the main drum motor. Check for condition of carbon brushes by removing them and repla
ce if severely worn. Check wiring loom around motor and right back to module controller. The clicking is obviously power being supplied to motor via the loom to the motor. finally check for any dry solder joints or burnt areas on the circuit board controlling the motor.

Continuously fills with water


You have dirt in your inlet valve (could be hot or cold) you will have to determine which valve is faulty and replace the valve, there will be dirt on a sealing face which is not worthwhile fixing the chances are you will make it worse. plus these are sometimes sealed units. turn off the power before removing any valves these could have a pernament neutral supply to them. one bolt and two pipes and it can be removed with the top off.
