Checking the Fill Hoses if your Washer is not Filling
How to check the fill hoses if your Whirlpool Stacked Laundry Washer is not filling
Check Washer Hoses and Water Supply:
Check the household faucets to see if the hot and cold water household water supply lines are turned on. Make sure to open both water supply lines completely, for proper fill.
If a cold water wash is selected, the washer is designed to add hot water to keep the temperature optimal for cold wash performance. If you want to save energy by not connecting to the hot water line (or only have access to a cold water line if connected in a garage, etc.), purchase a “Y-connector” and an extra inlet hose to connect the hoses to both sides of the water valve.
Water inlet hose
Check for any kinks in inlet hoses, which can restrict water flow.
If possible, remove the inlet hoses from the back of the washer. To do this, turn the water supply off, then use pliers to remove the hoses. Place hose ends in a bucket to catch water remaining in the hoses. Check the inlet screens on the back of the water inlet valve. If they appear to be clogged, scrub thoroughly with a brush (an old toothbrush works great) and mild soap and water. Replace the hoses, and turn the water supply on slowly, checking for leaks at the inlet valve.
Please note that fill hoses should be replaced every 5 years.
