Washer Dryer Won't Fill With Water

Recommended Posts

I bought a second hand Servis washer dryer (M9824S) from Ebay thinking I could fix the problem of it not wanting to fill (?blocked pressure chamber).

Thing is I have googled everything on here now and still it refuses to fill with water at the start of a program! It starts with the pump kicking in for a few seconds(which it should) - then nothing! If I leave it about 20 seconds, the pump kicks in again.

I have checked pressure switch (blew down the pipe both ends, it clicked as it should), ALL wire connections on whole of machine(all are connected and none seem broken), cleaned out pump, PCB all seems connected with no burnt out capacitors/wires(actually looks new), all pipes are connected and not blocked. The man I bought it from replaced the whole inlet valve thinking this was the problem.

If I fill the machine manually, it will go through a program and the dryer works, it just wont fill! I don't have a meter to test the wires on the solenoid valves, but think these are ok because when the machine switches on all the pipes twitch as if it is going to fill.

Have I missed something? The machine is quite dirty inside and smelly. but I have cleaned out the pump including the ping pong ball and pipes(they were very gunky)

Any help appreciated as I don't really want to dump such a smart machine.

The reason a blocked pressure system would stop a washing machine from filling with water is that the blockage traps air in the system and makes the washing machine think it is full of water, therefore it doesn't take any in - but it should act as though water is present and start to wash - or at least abort with an error code.

Is it flashing any option lights or is any one light flashing a set number of times in sequence indicating an error code?

Thanks for that Andy, but I gave up! I was beaten!

No flashing lights on this machine. I wanted to get to the pressure chamber, but it was impossible to get to on this machine as it was right in the middle and seemed to part of the whole drum chamber, so no bottle to disconnect.

Im sure it would have either been that or the PCB, but i gave up as I didnt think spending money on a 5 year old Servis machine would be worth it, and also the bearings I could hear were on their way out. Also, one of the only washer dryers I have seen with no low heat setting?

To be honest, as the manufacturer has gone bust several times and is presently still bust with no support or web site I wouldn't bother either unless it was something simple.
