"tap water closed?" message

Usually twice during the rinse cycle the machine stops, gives a warning beep and the above message appears. I just have to press "start" and it begins running again. Any thoughts or advise would be appreciated. Thanks, Alice

    I keep receiving the water tap closed? Error message.Water pressure is fine. No blockage in hoses. If I turn off the machine for an hour it works fine and I no longer receive This error message?

    I too have the same problem. It usually happens 2-3 times in every wash cycle. If I push the start button, it continues the cycle, only to happen again a little while later. Again, I push the start button and it eventually finishes the wash. I tried calling the manufacturer and they were absolutely no help. I bought this machine new, and after about 1 year I had to replace the part( don't know the name) that controls the digital readouts.Very unhappy with this machine.

Plug off the wall. Check the inlet tubes into your machine (after shutting off wall valve) for any blockage or clogging, both ends of the pipes. Refix carefully with correct threading. Turn on before next wash fully; and after wash turn off valve. It could also be that your wall valve is not on fully when you begin your wash.

And dont forget to rate me pl.

LG WM3987HW Combo - drum is filling with water during dry cycle.

Sears Parts Direct is one source of the parts diagrams, . See the Dispenser assembly parts diagram for the water inlet valve. If you can watch the entire cycle, try turning off the shut-off valves for the washer inlet hoses after the rinse cycle and before the dry cycle starts. Water should not flow into the washer/dryer with the shut-offs closed.

I've seen inlet valve solenoids fail in the open position or in the closed position. I've never seen a control board that sent open messages randomly. (Sometimes, there is damage to the control board or corrosion or damaged wiring that stops the control board from sending the open/closed message to the solenoid.)

I hope this helps.

Our miele w911 washing machine keeps stopping in the main wash cycle - red light above the tap symbol. What does it mean?

check that the water flow solenoid is operational and not blocking of the spray rinse requriement

Not getting enough water during rinse cycle

In the rinse cycle it will use cold only to rinse with.
You need to see how fast the water is going into the machine on rinse
Things that can effect slow fill, low water pressure, Faulty cold valve
water hose & valve filters clogged, Kinked hose

During the Normal washing cycle. 02 F appears. and cycle stops. Cycle hasn't finished rinse or spin.

Error F02 appears after 8mins of SUDs error. Error F02 means Long drain, means washer is taking longer time than normal to drain. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. NOTE: After 4 minutes the SUD error will be displayed, and then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.
? Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
? Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
? Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
? If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.

There are 3 small 9/32 hex head screws that hold the front panel on. Unscrew the 3 hex head screws (9/32 socket or nut driver size), now remove the front kick panel. Unscrew the white drain cap -WARNING-- lots of water will drain out when you loosen the white cap. Once all the water is out, remove and take out the filter trap.
Hope this helps... Please post back for more information

My top loading machine will not complete an entire cycle - it stops during the rinse cycle - so I have 1/2" of water in the bottom of my machine - Fisher and Paykel

Hi just read your posting.Now what I need to know is the model number of your machine which can be located on the back on a sticker.Also when it stops in the rinse cycle does an error code appear in you LCD screen if you have that model or do a series of lights come on and in both models it beeps.Now if you have the model where the lights come on they will be in a row of 8.Starting from the left to right what lights have turned on when it stops in the rinse cycle Is it the 2nd and 5th or the 3rd and 8th --etc-?Please reply with this additional information and I can help you rectify this fault for you.

Fill Fault appears during wash cycle.

Is the filter in the hose where it screws onto the tap clean?, if this is okay then most likely the valve.

Cold water will not stop filling during rinse

while the unit is filling in the warm cycle. reach behind and shut off the hot water tap.I bet the water flow stops filling, if so, you would need to change the inlet valve on the machine. You see, in warm, if the cold is not filling, you still hear the hot filling and the unit will advance. The rinse cycles are mostly "cold" only. if the valve is not opening it will not allow it to advance from the rinse section on the board.

Good luck!

WFS1071AW is my type of whirlpool front loader

Hello baud Welcome,
You said the water entry into the machine is fine with nothing blocking it. But you keep getting the red light on for "water tap closed". At one point the water did start flowing in but soon stopped and turn on the warning light again. Please suggest how to fix it??

I believe this sounds like the screens are dirty and stopping water flow so it shuts down!
Dry all of the below suggestions.

Washer displaying code message and or tone sounds
“F20” (Water Inlet Problem—no water or insufficient
water supply)
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug
washer or disconnect power.Leave power off for 5 minutes. This will reset the system!
Check the following:
Are water faucets completely turned on?
*****Are screens at inlet hose connection to washer clogged?
Remove hose from washer an clean screens at water inlet!

Are water inlet hoses kinked?
Are water inlet hoses frozen?
Plug in washer or reconnect power. Re-select cycle and press
START. If the problem remains, call for service.

Let me know how you do.
Thank You Huuum
