Check to see if there's good water volume coming through the hoses attached to the washing machine. If there is, check to see if the screens inside the water-inlet valve are clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If they're clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you should completely replace the valve.Replace the water inlet valve with this part.

SOURCE: water barely trickles out for rinse cycle

Hello,

It sounds like you have some buildup in the cold water valve screen. Where the hose connects to the washer there should be a screen inside the valve. Remove the cold water hose from the washer and clear any debri on the valve screen.

If this doesn't fix the slow cold water flow then you will have to replace the whole water valve assembly. The water valve is the piece that the hoses connect too and supply water to the washer.

If you have anymore questions about this please ask. I will be more than happy to help you out.

Thanks

SOURCE: GE washer won't fill with cold water

Cold water pipe had become frozen. FYI this model of washer has a nice feature whereas you can test each component i.e. valves, by setting the timer and reading the LED's on the front panel. Instructions are in the schematic.

SOURCE: Kenmore 110 Top Load Washer-cold water fills extremely slowly

No it is probably the screen that is either in the end of the hose that attaches to the machine, and/or the screen is placed so that the cone is toward the machine instead of pointing away from the machine.
If the cone is pointing towards the machine any debris in the lines would collect and eventually fill the screen cone and slow or shut off water flow.

SOURCE: no cold water, only hot

Here are some things to check that are general for all washers.
Is the cold water turned on? Are the hoses connected to the correct faucets? Is the filter screen inside the hose where it connects to the faucet clogged? Do you hear a buzzing sound when the washer is trying to fill and is set to COLD only?
If all the above are OK then the temperature selector switch (or electronic control) may have to be replaced.
If there is no buzzing sound when the washer is trying to fill on Cold only, the solenoid valve (that the hoses connect to on the washer) may have to be replaced.

SOURCE: washer will not fill up or use cold water

Check the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the water inlet valve. Make sure they are clean of rust or debris. The solenoids can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Cold water runs slow


Turn the cold water off and remove the hose at the machine. You will find a screen located there and you will need to clean it out.

Water will not fill during rinse cycle. it does fill when i start the machine but not during rinse cycle.


The rinse cycle only takes cold water so I suspect that you have a bad or maybe clogged water valve on the cold side of valve.hope this helps.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of an intermittent (cold) water control valve- sometimes only partially opens.
It needs replacing! Service call ;-0(

My washer will not fill with water or do any functions when i turn the dial


My Hoover 7700l ...on "fill" cycle, the water dribbles in. Takes hours to fill so we use buckets to reach the required level.

Tried: Swapping cold and hot water inlet hoses, making sure that dial is in "hot". This solved the problem for filling, BUT when "rinse cycle appoars, it's back to the dribble again.

any ideas?

Kenmore front loader washing machine very long wash cycle


You need to replace your cold water, inlet valve.

Unplug the machine from the power source. Disconnect cold water hose. remove the top cover of the machine. You will see the cold inlet valve/solenoide where the hose fits.

Take note of where the wiring goes. You can get the part from your appliance parts outlet.

Refit, and you should be right to go.

Good Luck.

Waher takes 2 hours to fill on rinse cycle,fill up pretty quickly on wash but than on rinse takes 2 or more hours to fill


This is a cold water supply problem, obvious since cold water is what is used in the rinse cycle. Check the water inlet valve. Remove the supply hoses and check the small screens inside the valve. Make sure they are not clogged with rust or debris. The solenoids can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Test for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid and the water inlet valve will need replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Hot Water runs in fine but the cold only trickles into Washer,


There are 2 hoses. Hot and cold and if the nobs are not turned wide open then it will not give you the water like you want. Check to make sure that the hot water nob is turned to were the water should come out like the cold. If not that then check the water heater and see if it is set up the way it needs to be.
