Question about Hotpoint WMA58 Front Load Washer
My machine isn't going through the cycle properly. I set it on D and after initially starting off fine the pre-wash light comes on and I have to push the start button for it to continue. In addition to this, it is over filling with water.Help!
There are two reasons could cause washer's overfilling. - A defective water entrance valve - Water supply to the machine is done through an electromagnet valve,loocated at the water pipe's enterance to the machine. A defect in the valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it, and the valve may leak and drip water into the tub.You can easyly open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from the machine before doing it !!!!! and to close water main tap to the machine. In case cleaning doesn't help, you should replace the valve. Water switch level - A diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. Open the rear panel, find the device and clear first any obstruction in the tube.In case it doesn't help, disconnect the wires from the unit (you should disconnect first machine's power cable !!!!!) and measure with a multi-meter on its tugs for continuity and disconnection while you are inhale and blow to its tube. In case it will not react, you should replace it. Good luck !!
