If the belt is installed so that it turns in the wrong direction, or goes over the pulleys in the wrong order it will just flop off; much like a vacuum cleaner belt. Double check that you have routed the belt correctly.

The rate of flow leaving the washer cannot be adjusted. Make sure the drain hose from the washer has an air gap around it when installed in the standpipe. If it does have the proper air gap the standpipe is to small or clogged up. Building codes here require a 2" standpipe.

H20 indicates a water supply problem.
Check the water pressure, check for restricted hose/s, check the filters in the inlet valve/s.

If you think your washing machine may be faulty, check the following points before calling a Service Engineer. These checks could prevent a charge being made for the Service man's visit if the machine is found to be in perfect working order.Initially check the filter on your washing machine and clean if necessary, your manual should detail this procedure.
If your machine will not start or complete the programme, check:
  • The plug, the socket and the switch, if necessary, with another appliance.
  • The fuse in the plug.
  • That the door is closed.
  • That a programme is accurately selected.

If water will not enter, check:
  • The hot and cold hoses are correctly connected to the relevant caps and that these are turned on.
  • That a suitable programme has been selected.

If water will not drain, check:
  • That the outlet hose is not kinked or raised more than 40° from the floor.
  • If you wish to remove articles when the water will not pump out, place the end of the drain hose into a bucket on the floor and allow water to drain out by gravity, noting that more than one bucketful may be present. Hook the hose into the sink again and try the spinner before removing the articles - if this fails most of the water can be baled out with a cup.
  • If the above method fails to remove the water then the pump is probably blocked - do not open the door, but contact your nearest Service Engineer.

HI. This will be the result of a failed inlet assembly. Use my procedure to confirm the damage. If the inlet proves to be functional, replace the main control device.

The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it at the back of the washer. Start by turning off the water supply at the valves on the wall. Disconnect both hoses from the back of the washer. Place the hoses into a bucket and turn them on to confirm that you are getting good water pressure and to clear out any debris from the line.

Inspect the filter screens on both the hoses and the inlet valve for debris build up. If you find any debris, clean it out. Use caution to avoid damaging the filter screens because the screens in the valve are not replaceable.

If debris was not present then proceed to the next step of testing the solenoids. Access to the valve may be easiest by opening the top or the back of the washer, depending upon make and model.

There are two wires connected to each solenoid on the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip-on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals ( Be sure to not pull the wires). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

Use a multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. A reading of infinity indicates a bad solenoid that must be replaced. Different brands and models will have various measurements, but the valve should show some resistance if it is functioning properly. Test the second one in the same way as the first.

  • NOTE_ You will need to remove the top cover off of the unit to access the valves for the electronic test.

my hot spot washing machine write f12 and it woud start do you have solution to this problem please

Hi. The motor is non adjustable on this washer. Tilt washer forward, get someone to hold it steady, and put belt round motor pulley first, then slip belt on drum pulley, and slowly turn drum by hand, feeding the belt on as you turn drum, be careful not to trap fingers, as it is very tight, this is normal, as the belt is a stretch type, this is the reason the motor is non adjustable. Please rate my advice. Thanks.

you have to check the water level sensor, included to check the small hose from the drum to the water level sensor. there must be pressure from the water to suppress these sensors, the operation of the washing machine are:
washing process / cycles will start when the water level, which we set is reached. then there is pressure from the water through a hose, pressure water level sensor.

while SPIN is the reverse process of the washing process, water in the drums will be drained through the drain valve. and there is no pressure in the water level sensor so that the spin will start.

For most front-loaders:
Open the top of washer, screws behind, slide away from front couple of inches & lift up. Lubricate the slot which fits over the tub with washing-up fluid, if there is resistance to insert. Starting at the top, press the seal so the flange of the tub enters the slot on the seal. Work your way round the using thumbs to force the slot on the tub flange. When slot is on the flange all way round, fit the spring which holds it on. The spring goes into a slot on the outside of the seal. This is quite difficult and you may need another pair of hands. Fit the outside of the seal to the cabinet - this is easy and fit the plastic clamping ring.
Test for leaks before using. Use rinse to test as the water level is higher.

Most washers have an electric water valve in the back where the water hoses connect to the washer, and there are screens in it that can plug up with rust from your homes' pipes. The supply hoses may also have screens. If that is not the problem, it could be that the electric valve is bad, which is easy to change. First, as a repair man I always look for the simple fixes first, like making sure the water is turned on. Robin
