Common faults why water does not go into your washing machine:

1 The water only goes into machine at certain points of the washing machine program.

2 The washing machine slowly fills when the power is of the machine.

3 The washing machine starts but then stops with only a small amount of water in the drum. (this is normally low water pressure or blocked filter in the water valve)

4 No water goes into the machine at all.

    I have a 5 year old Samsung washer, WD8704RJA. It stopped working and displayed 4E. The water supply was correct and I tried the machine again, it ran correctly for 57 minutes of a 70 minute programme and then got stuck, it does not display an error message and just makes a whirring sound.
    I have watched and been impressed by Paul’s tutorial video and hope you can provide some guidance for me.
