Washing machine is not taking in water

Possible cause Resolution
The washing machine pipes are kinked or blocked. Check that there are no kinks in the cold water pipe and the waste water pipe by pulling the appliance out slightly and untwisting any visable kinks or bends in these pipes. For more information on how to correctly install these two pipes click here. Also ensure that the waste water pipe is not blocked by removing the waste water pipe from the siphon connection, putting the end of the pipe in a bucket and selecting the drain programme. If there is a blockage, water will not fill, or struggle to fill, the bucket. If a blockage is found, clean the waste water pipe and siphon.
The water pressure is too low. Check the water pressure directly from the tap using a bucket. Approximately 10 litres of water per minute should flow out of the tap when fully open. For more information on how to ensure your washing machine is getting a water supply, watch our YouTube video by clicking here. Contact your fitter if the water pressure is too low.
