Inserted flexible piece of thin wire into hose connectioin on outside of bowl and vigoursly wriggled it around - replaced hose and bingo water fills and shuts off and machine operates correctly. Seems like the hose connection was blocked, not a very scientific repair method but seems to have worked. Thanks.

Error code nf


It would really help to know the make and model of your machine as codes mean very different things depending on what manufacturer's machine they're showing on. However, I'm giong to take a blind guess that this is a Samsung? If I'm right then it means "No Flow" (Of water) you should check the following (Which I have stolen from the Samsung repair forum!)
1. Water is shut off at rear of washing machine. Check and make sure water is turned on.
2. Water inlet hoses are kinked or crimped. Check hose to ensure they are not kinked or crimped in any way. This will still let a small amount of water into the washer but not enough for the sensor to be satisfied.
3. Water fill valve screens are clogged with mineral or calcium deposits. Turn the water off and remove the hoses from the "Hot" and "Cold" side. Once the hoses are removed you will see a small screen tucked inside both fill valves. The screens simply pull out so they can be cleaned. Usually it is on the "COLD" side where you'll find the clogged screen.
4. Make sure the door is shut tightly. Yes, if the door is not shut all the way you may possibly get this error code on the display. Open and close door ensuring it closed correctly.
If the above hasn't fixed your error, then you may have a faulty fill valve. Rather than pasting further information from the same forum, I'll just give you a pointer to it :) http://www.appliancerepairlesson.com/2014/01/11/samsung-washer-error-code-nf-fixed/

Water wont go into the machine but the wash light comes on here a clink but dosent fill with water an start cycle help plz


IF YOU ARE SURE THE WATER SUPPLY IS ON. SHUT OFF WATER TO MACHINE AND REMOVE HOSES ON BACK OF MACHINE AND CK SCREEN ON VALVE THEY CAN BECOME PLUGED AND WILL BLOCK WATER FLOW. PUT THE HOSES IN A BUCKET AND TURN ON JUST TO BE SURE IT IS NOT ANOTHER PLUMBING PROBLEM.

Filling with water then does not finish cycle


There should be a sensor on the door that tells it the door is shut. Check that this is being pressed when the door is shut. You should see it where the doormeets the washer and can use something to press it. Put your washing in spin cycle and press it if it starts spinning there is your problem( make sure the washer is empty ). If it still doesn't work you will most likely need a repairman.

WATER IN WASHER WONT SHUT OFF


Hi and welcone to FixYa. I am Kelly. When water wont shut off no matter what you do the problem is inside of the water valve assy. Usually there is a small bit of debris in the diaphram center hole that is holding the water passage open.

Here is what you can try to do to clear if BEFORE replacing the eater Valve.

1. Get a bucket
2. Turn off both water supply hoses momentarily
3. Set the water temp to warm
4. Remove ONE hose from the wall connection and place the hose in a the bucket.
5. Turn on the remaning connected hose/
6. Start machine fill cycle and tap the hose connection at the water valve on the back of the machine with either a screw driver or hammer handle.

Timer OFF

REVERSE HOSE CONNECTIONS ON THE WALL CONNECTION.

7. Place the other hose in the bucket
8. Start Fill cycle.
9. Again tap the hose connection at the water valve
10. Stop timer.
11. Reconnect both hoses and test for water flow with timer off.
12. Start fill cycle
13. Rapidly select hot and cold wash water.
14. STOP fill cycle.
15. Remove each hose individually from the water valve one at a time.
16. Use a knive blade and remove the inlet screen from the water valve. Wash screen under slowly running water rubbing it clean with your fingers. Re install screen. Reconnect water hose.
17. Repeat step 16 for opposite hose and screen.
18. Turn on water supply.
19. Test for proper filling and water stopping by starting and stopping fill cycle.

If it works you got lucky. If you still have the problem you will need to change the water valve. Either one of these water valves will work on your machine:

Water doesn't shut off


Hi There
I have looked up your problem that you are having. Read this and let me know how it goes. Hope this gets you in the right direction.
If your washer is overfilling, check these: Water-inlet valve Water-level switch Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve. Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.\
Thank you for writing to fix ya.
Best Regards Richard

How do I clean water filter on a magtag top washer model LA613T


You may have a screen in the inlet side of your fill hoses. There is also a screen just inside the valve. Turn off the hot and colt water shut off valves. Start a cycle on warm wash to be sure both shut off valves are completely closed, and to relieve the pressure within the hose. Remove both hoses at both ends. If there is a screen in the hose connection...remove them, clean them and carefully reinstall them. The screens in the washer valve will be just inside the valve where the hose connected. Carefully remove, clean and reinstall them. Connect hoses back to washer and shut off valves using care not to cross thread. This will damage the connections and require replacement of the valve. Do not over tighten. Once all connections are secure, turn the water back on slowly and check for leaks. If you are uncomfortable doing this repair, it is a very inexpensive repair when a tech does it for you. Watch him or her do it, and do it yourself next time.

My Hoover 550 wil not stop filling with water


Possibly caused by a leaking water level sensor. Turn off the power, remove 3 screws at top back of control panel. Rotate the control panel forward and have a look at the white rubber hose on the left hand side. Check that it is connected at both ends and not perished. Also check that the adjuster cam (turn the level knob and look behind) is not broken.

Hoover Premier 706


I have the same washer and the paint started to flake from the bottom of the bowl. Rust under the baked enamel made it lift. I peeled the loose paint then applied rust converter and a zinc paint. This patch is still ok after 12 months but my wife is complaining about paint flakes and rust on some clothes. In my opinion, the only way to remove the agitator is to undo the nuts retaining the shaft from the inside. I guess I will find patches of rust under the agitator and depending on how big and deep they are will determine if I replace the machine or patch the rust.
