Cold Water Light Flashing


Possible Cause What to Do

Cold tap/faucet

Turning off both taps first, disconnect the cold tap inlet hose at the straight (tap) end before turning the cold tap back on to check the water flow.

Inlet hoses – filters

Filters inside the two inlet hoses connecting your washer to the taps can become blocked. Turning off the taps first, unscrew the hoses at the machine end. Remove filters with nose pliers and clean if required.

Inlet hoses – kinks

Straighten any kinks along the two inlet hoses that connect your washer to the taps as these can restrict water flow. If the kinks return, you may need to replace the hoses.

Inlet hoses – connections  

If the two inlet hoses connecting your washer to the hot and cold taps are the wrong way around, this can confuse your washer when filling. To check, turn off the taps, swap the hoses around, and turn the taps back on.

Water temperature too low

Your water supply may be too cold for an effective wash. Try increasing the temperature.

Water pressure too low

Test the water pressure elsewhere in your household as this can affect wash temperature.
