Hotpoint Aqualtis won't fill

Recommended Posts


My Hotpoint Aqualtis won't fill. When powered on it starts the drain cycle, then after a normal duration the drain stops, but the machine does not fill.

I have checked the water pressure from the inlet hose.

I have replaced the pressure sensor, and checked the thin hose is unobstructed. 

I have replaced the fill valves/solenoids.

I have run the machine without the Dispenser in place, and can confirm the valves never open.

I have checked the continuity of the cable running from PCB to the fill solenoid, and the connection of that cable to the PCB.

What voltage is required to open the solenoid? I would like to run the machine with the multi meter connected to the wire instead of the solenoid so I can see if it ever tries to open!

I have read that a failed PCB is too expensive to try replacing?

Is it time to give up and get a new one?


Many thanks for this great resource!
