Very Slow filling of cold water into machine when set on cold

Clarke Taylor

Had exactly this problem yesterday. Had no idea how old these machines were! 1984. Anyway, slow fill in this case was caused by the a previous repairer switching the wires between the hot and cold solonoid valves. The hot valve has a restricter in it, the cold not.

Once switched back, it was fine. The 2 cold water solonoid wires have "cool" colours, the hot solonoid wires are "warm" colours.
