Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.
Start a cycle and see if it will fill. If it does not, do you hear a humming or buzzing from the valve area where the hoses are attached?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hoses attached to tapes designed for machine.
Hot water was leaking so i only have cold wash on.
Shall i just set quick wash ?
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.
You need to have both on. Even in a cold wash, the hot valve needs to open because there is a sensor that keeps the cold water at a specific temperature. That is why you are getting the error.
