The problem is one of two parts. One is your water temperature switch or your hot water solinoid. To get to the back you must remove the hex screws on the back and then the panel is removeable.

SOURCE: washing machine wont stop filling with cold water

Since you removed the screens, the sand probably has entered the valve and damaged the spool. It's apparently sticking open. You need to replace the complete valve and keep the screens in place.

i had the problem of my brand new washing machine not taking the conditioner and the customer service advisor rightly guessed that i was using concentrated liquid and advised me to dilute it with warm water then put it in the drawer because sometimes the liquid is too thick for the machine to take.try this!!!!! regarding the powder why not put it directly in the machine or buy tablets and do the same with those

The washing machine barrel fills up with water even after the wash has finished and all clothes removed, why?


The water inlet valve is passing a little water through in the unenergized state. Turn the water supply valves off and wait. If the filling up stops replace the machine's inlet valve and if you can, flush your water pipes and water heater before hooking the washer back up

My hoover washing machine won't spray rinse or deep rinse on cold


Rinse cycles are normally with cold water only.

I believe you have a faulty cold water inlet valve. To confirm, put the machine on a cold only wash cycle, and see if it fill up with water.

If it does, then the valve is O.K. In that case the problem you are having with the rinse cycle is most likely a timmer fault.

Good Luck

Blocked filters/dodgy pump?


The problem you are having could simply be the inlet valve.

The inlet hose is attached to the inlet valve on the machine. Where it screws on that is.

You can get a valve from an appliance parts shop and they are inexpensive.

Washing machine cold water not filling


Typically this indicates that you have a water inlet valve that is not opening. Replacement of this part would be ideal, and should fix the problem.

Can't get the cold water to turn on. I have 1. switched hoses 2. no kinks 3. water is turned on Model 1220


Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.
