Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! If the valve is new and is getting adequate voltage, it has to be an issue with the supply from your home. Those are the only things in the equation, so either the house pressure to the valve is low, the valve is not opening all the way or the voltage to the valve is low.
As I said in my question the house pressure has been checked and is quite high enough and the electricals have been checked (voltage is adequate)
I am trying to avoid buying a new machine when every other part is working perfectly. This does seem extraordinary. There must be a very simple explanation.
I thought you may have some other ideas about where the problem could be in the machine itself so that I could avoid such a drastic cost.
I will endeavour to see if I can get more information before taking this step. Waiting for the tub to fill slowly whenever I use cold water wash (which is for most washes) is something I will try.
Thank you for trying
Yes Kelly this was done.
Why I asked the question and gave details of everything that had been tried was that I felt there could possibly be a way of checking to ensure there was not some blockage between where the water enters the machine and finally enters the tub.
Is this a possibility?
