My washing machine doesnt seem to want to work today.
Press start, you hear a sound as if it's about to fill with water for literally a second, then nothing!

I've checked to see if water pipe blocked, I've cleaned the nozzle at bottom, and the spinner spins freely..

Any suggestions to what it could be..

I'm guessing there is a valvue that opens and closes for the water inlet, my guess is that this is damaged.

Thanks

Mr Sheep
Yes, it does sound like a defective inlet valve. Is it a front or a top loader? If a top loader you can probably change it your self.

Do you put the clothes in from the front or the top of the machine?

Just a possibility but has the machine got itself pressed up against the wall so the water can't fill or maybe a blockage in the outlet pipe, a coin or button stuck in the pipe?

This happened to my machine the other week, it took a little water in them wouldnt do anything else. Turned the programme control to drain and it drained ok. Called engineer out and all it needed was new brushes, fixed within the hour.
