It may be a bad water valve or just a clogged screen. take off the cold water connection from the back of the washer and clean out the screen you see inside the plastic piece the hose fits on. do not take it out, clean it while it is still inside.

I have an Estate 8cycle 2speed washer that won't fill unless the temperature selector is set to Hot/Cold. Any ideas on what I need to check first?


I bet If you switch the water hose around it will fill on cold and not hot. Reason I think so is that hot fills and doesn't use the cold line. So either you got a bad cold valve or a blocked screen. Also Try to run the hoses into a bucket and see if they run well to eliminate the water source.

Installing a Miele WS5425 cold water fill only?


if you only want cold water for washing, just select cold wash in the program settings and turn off the hot water tap
so the settings you will be looking at are --like --
tub fill ---low water medium water or high water
water temp cold or hot
rinse hot or cold , wash setting --heavy , delicates , whites , woollens etc
may not be exactly worded like that but you get the idea
when ever you see wash temp or water temp , select-- cold

Will not fill with hot or cold water and is connected


You need good water pressure on hot for these machines to work, gravity fed systems may not be enough. I had to attach a pump to mine to improve the hot water pressure (UK)
Switch over the inlet pipes ie hot to cold and cold to hot and try filling the machine when switched to fill with hot water, (machine will fill will cold). proving the valve is opening and it is a pressure issue on you hot water.

its the problem of drum getting blocked by any clothes getting tucked up.also try to move the drum manually with the machine off.if it makes any noise its the faulty motor.or drum has lost its alignment.it needs to be reseated properly in that case. -------------- The water fill valve - The water fill valve is a mechanical and electrical part, the coils on the valve need electricity to mechanically open the valve to allow the water to flow into the washer....myth....the washer pumps water into itself...no, it does not.

No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability.

Washer will not fill when you select cold water


Q - My washer will not fill with cold water
A - More often than not, this is a bad fill valve. Please see the filling section.
There's no cold water Some washing machines allow cold water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.

If you're sure the machine is not working the way it used to--or should--check the following.

  • Is the cold water turned on? If not, turn it on.


  • Is the washer getting hot water but no cold water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct.


  • Is there cold water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you need to replace the valve.
