I have looked at the link on here about this problem but I still can't resolve the issue and just wanted to seek further advice before either buying spare parts or splashing out on a new machine.

I've a Beko 7335 that's approx 4 years old and it has decided that it doesn't want to fill with water. It spins fine though.

I've checked the filter at the bottom (and am 25p richer!) and checked that the hoses aren't kinked or blocked. The water is coming through to the pipes fine as well, but it's just making the pump noise and nothing is coming through the dispenser drawer.

I thought there may be something else stuck in the bottom filter but I turned the machine on its side and took it off earlier, checked the hoses etc and all seems fine. (I'm not a technician, just a fairly competent DIYer)

After a bit of googling I'm presuming it's the solenoid water inlet valve that's gone wappy, but what do others on here think? I know Beko are relatively rubbish but could do without having to fork out for a new machine right now if poss!

Also, not as important but it just bugs me - the machine often has a mind of its own when selecting programmes and sometimes it decides that it doesn't want to do the 40 cotton wash and will only select the 30 or 60 either side of the dial! Any advice on how to remedy this will be helpful too!

Thanks for any help or advice :)

Obviously the first thing to check is that the tap supplying the inlet hose hasn't been accidentally turned off. The lever type are easy to accidentally knock when moving things under the sink. Next check the filters which sit inside the end of the inlet hose, the end on the machine. They could be calcified. With the lid off, turn the machine on and you should hear water gushing through the solenoid and rubber pipe to the dispenser. If not, it could be the solenoid or a developed wiring fault. You will need to check the voltages and if you don't have the equipment or knowledge for this, then an engineer would be required. I wouldn't buy a new machine for such a simple fault myself. New solenoids are cheap.
