Question about Frigidaire CWS3600AS Top Load Washer
The water company installed a new water meter and dirt backed up all water lines to the house including washing machine, now the washing machine is clogged with dirt, a small amount of water will trickle out.
You probably have sediment clogged in the inlet hoses and/or screens in the water inlet valve of the washer. First, turn off your water taps in the back of the washer. Disconnect the hoses one at a time and insert them in the wash tub. Turn the water taps back on to see if you are getting water through the lines. If not, you will need to remove the hoses and flush them out. If the hoses appear fine, inspect the sediment screens on your water inlet valve (this is where the hoses connect to). You can use cotton swabs to remove most sediment. If you cannot get the screens to clear and/or if sediment has gotten inside the water inlet valve, you will probably have to replace it. Try flushing the lines and cleaning the sediment screens, first, though. I hope this helps you.
