Washing machine wont fill with hot water

GW712 - Recently moved house and since moved machine will only occasionally fill with hot water.. Bowl will spin but no hot water will come in, machine does not beep.. Have checked at water source and runs freely when not attached to machine.. Also the pressure of the water entering the machine is not as strong as previously.

    My new front-loading automatic washer (Whirlpool Duet) does not fill with hot or cold water. The machine makes a tapping noise when it calls for water as if it wants to suck it in but it is being restricted. I find it hard to believe that both the screens, internally, are clogged. I would think that something electronic is preventing the valve or pump from pulling in the water. The water line for the hot and cold both function properly when disconnected and the screens look like new, especially because we only used it 4 times since we purchased it in August.

If you pull the filter out of you (hot water) valve with a pair of long nose pliers you will see a black rubber seal. pull this rubber ring put as it acts like a restrictor.

Cold Fill Washing Machine Does Not Get Hot

Do y7ou have 2 hoses at the back of the machine one for cold water and one connected to the hot water tap of the house. If not then you have a cold water in only. If you have 2 hoses have you connected the hoses into the machine correctly Have you checked to see if your machine has a heating element under the bowl for heating the water. As an appliance shop to verify if you have by the model number of the machine. otherwise you have a cold washing machine and unless you can plumb hot water to it that is all you will have.

Black type residue being left on clothes


Hi there,

This is a common problem on washing machines, if you predominantly do cold washes.

Over a period of time, a washing machine will accumulate a buildup of Soap Scum (excess soap & softener residue) which can stick to the inside of the drum.

This black coloured soap scum occasionally breaks away from the drum, and attaches to the clothing fabric during the wash cycle.

You can rectify this, by doing the following:

Firstly, purchase a packet of CITRIC ACID from your local grocery store (usually found in the baking isle).

Do the following procedure before going to bed:

1) Do a HOT WASH without clothes (Hi water level, with HOT water) - allow machine to fill with hot water, then add the CITRIC ACID to the water. Allow the machine to complete a FULL wash cycle (i.e. allow machine to agitate for 30 mins or so, then drain).

2) Fill the machine again with the HOT water / CITRIC ACID solution, but this time allow it to sit in the bowl overnight (no cycle).

3) Next morning, set machine to spin & drain (i.e. to empty the solution)

4) Set machine to fill with FRESH HOT WATER ONLY (no citric acid), then set machine to spin & drain. This will flush all remaining residue left in the bowl.

Note: Soap scum residue is caused by using excess detergent/fabric softener. Hot Water flushing should be done every 6 months.

Contrary to what the detergent manufacturers state, you should follow Samsung's instructions by using HALF the recommended detergent.

Samsung machines prefer LOW SUDS, and you may find by reducing the amount of detergent used, you may even eliminate the buildup of soap scum.

Oil smell in washing bowl, wet pump exterior and floor puddle.

Mark, the "brown stuff" is a build up of old soap, dirt and often mildew. Yea, gross huh? The best way to get rid of it if you have a bad case (which sounds like you) is to remove the spin basket and actually clean all the crud out. Once it has been cleaned then you should do at least 1 load of wash a week on HOT and it helps keep the gunk away. Some places offer products that are supposed to remove the gunk but I have yet to find one that does. The brown stuff is not related to a bad seal on the shaft. Good luck!

Water flow into machine dribbling - Fisher and Paykel GW712 (AU)

The first thing that needs to be done is to disconnect the fill hoses from the back of the machine. Once disconnected, look at the inlet valve screens and check for blockage, if clear, open the water valves and check for water flow through hoses, if not clear, clean screens at fill valve, reconnect hoses & check for operation. If the problem remains, then the problem is with the machines fill valve & it would need to be replaced

F & P GW712 - bowl spins, but won't fill.

Read your user manual - but I would suggest that you may not have setup the balance properly. Check the level of the machine and adjust to be as square as possible by adjusting the feet at the bottom. If the water isnt coming in on both hot and cold sounds like a common problem - perhaps the water level sensor is playing up or something else has been knocked during transportation of the machine when you moved house. Check your user manual for troubleshooting. Sounds dumb, but check that 'delay start' isnt selected also. check both hoses filters are not blocked.

Machine not filling with hot water

First check the filters in the inlet hose and hot water pressure. Sounds to me like the hot water valve is faulty. Test the w/machine on a hot water cycle, if you hear a noise and its not filling it up with water,its a faulty hot water valve. Air pressure?? change the water valve and remember it has a little rubber boot on the old water valve, transfer this to the new valve,or go into option adjustment mode and change you wash temperature settings.
