What should I do if my Frigidaire Laundry Center is not filling with water properly?

If you recently installed your Frigidaire Laundry Center, here are a few things to consider:

High-efficiency washers are designed to use less water and energy. It is normal for the water level to appear lower than what you may have experienced with an older unit.

Most Frigidaire Laundry Centers rely on sensory technology and will determine the proper water level for each load – water will enter the washer tub once the sensory cycle is complete (which can a few minutes).

If water is flowing to your washer slowly or isn’t flowing at all, you might find a solution below:Hot and cold water faucets. Be sure your water supply faucets are completely open.Water-fill hoses.

Check your water hoses to see if they might be kinked. If so, simply straighten the hoses.Water pressure. Your washer needs sufficient water pressure to fill.

Check to see if water is being used elsewhere in your home such as shower, bath and dishwasher while the washer is trying to fill.Washer lid. Make sure the lid is completely closed. Your washer will not operate with the lid open.Filter on water valve.

If the filter screens on your water valve are clogged, turn off your water faucets and remove the hoses from the valve connections. Clean the filter screens and then reconnect the hoses; turn on the water.Drain hose standpipe.

Check to ensure the drain hose standpipe is at the correct height – to ensure the drain hose standpipe is at the correct height – it must be a minimum of 33” high to prevent siphoning.

For laundry loads needing extra water, some Frigidaire Laundry Centers have the Max Fill feature. Pressing the Max Fill button adds the maximum amount of water possible, and will increase the duration of the cycle time.
