Washer not providing cold water and stops when it gets to the second rinse.


Hi Allison. These two issues are actually connected. The reason the machine stops is that the second rinse is cold water only - the machine is simply waiting for the water level to reach the proper amount.

Let's first verify that the water supply is on and that no obstructions are in the line. Turn off the cold water supply and remove the hose from the machine. Using a bucket, carefully turn the cold water on and ensure that it is flowing freely. After turning off the water, but before reinstalling the hose, check the screen inside the water inlet on the machine to make sure it is not clogged.

If all is well, then the most likely cause is that the cold water solenoid has failed and the entire water inlet valve will need to be replaced.

We can only use hot water in our Whirlpool 7.5kg WFE1070BD 1000RPM - how to we shut off the hot water and use cold water? We have tried only cold but the machine will not operate. Please help. Many...


Turn off the water to the machine. Disconnect the cold water hose from the back of the machine and put it in a large bucket. Turn on the water to see if you get full-pressure cold water from the hose. If not, the shut-off valve or other plumbing has a problem.

If you do get cold water from the hose, check the strainer inside the hose fitting on the back of the washer. Clean it if it is clogged. If you still don't get cold water in the machine, you have a problem with either the solenoid valve or the cold water fill contacts in the timer (the timer won't start until the tub is up to the selected level, but if the valve isn't opening or the supply line is otherwise blocked, the machine will never fill). Sometimes in this case you can hear the solenoid valve humming (normally the sound is masked by the running water).

If the problem is a clogged strainer, clean out the hot water strainer also.

I find I get better wash results with warm water (runs both hot and cold for the wash cycle). The soap is more active than in cold water, so I don't need quite so much, and the machine doesn't take as long to finish a cycle since it fills faster. Of course, the cold water has to be running to get the energy savings compared to hot only.

Sounds like the valve isn't working properly.
One way to test is to turn off the water supplies and at the back of the machine switch the hoses.
Turn on the water and see if you get cold and not hot . If so replace the valve assembly

SMEG DWI612C WON'T PUMP WATER OUT


even if the pump is running does not mean the impeller shaft is turning, You could unplug the machine and disconnect the washer and pull out and drop the hose to see if water will drain when you lower the hose to about 8 inch's does it run out freely? if not check for a plugged water pump or water pump hose if the water flows freely you will need to drain the washer if it's on rollers roll it out side to allow the water to drain out the machine from the porch. while it is draining check the hose that the washer connects to see if you see any plug in the pipe. put the sink drain plugs in and fill half way with water put a bucket under the sink after filling the water to half full pull the stopper out of the sink that connects to the dish washer. Hold your hand on the hole of the connection to the sing watch to see if the drain allows the water to flow. If it flows freely you can assume that the water pump is bad. If thats the case it's best find someone to replace the unit the pump can be replaced but you need tools to do so and you did not state if you had any. thanks for using fix-ya.

My kenmore 27 wide laundry center will not fill on rinse cycle! the water runs, but does not fill??????


If water is entering the tub on rinse and running out, the drain line is too low or siphoning the water out.
If it is not entering the machine the cold water inlet valve has trash in the screen and must be cleaned.
A test is choose COLD FILL and turn the machine on for regular wash. If no water enters,turn off the water supply and remove the hoses from the machine. Look inside the cold fill connection and clean the screen.

Kenmore 80 series washer with setting on cold/cold the water doesn't run


You might want to try cleaning the cold water inlet screen. Turn the water off where the hose connects to the faucet. Disconnect the cold water hose at the washing machine, you will see a small screen inside the cold water connector on the washing machine. Use a very small screw driver or heavy needle and work the screen out of the inlet. If the screen is not dirty or plugged, you may need to replace the water switching valve. It is the valve assembly that the hot and cold water lines attach too in the back of the washer.
Good luck.
Regards

Very slow cold water fill, why?


First make sure that you have adequate water flow from the hose bib coming from the wall. You can do this by turning off your cold water connection at the wall, then disconnect the cold water hose. Then turn the faucet on and make sure the water flows freely. The most common reason for your problem is a clogged screen where the cold water hose connects to the back of the washer. To check this, disconnect the cold hose from the back of the washer and clean the small screen inside the cold water inlet on the washer.

Cold water no flow on Kenmore front load washer


Check cold hose to see if it is clogged or the filter in the end of it is. Make sure water freely coming out from the tap. If that is all ok then replace the watter control valve on the cold side.
