Possible Solutions

Is the household water supply turned on?

Both the hot and the cold water faucets or valves must be turned on and fully open. Check the household faucets to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Make sure to open both faucets or valves completely for proper fill.

Are the water inlet hoses kinked?

Check for any kinks in inlet hoses, which can restrict water flow.

Are you using Anti-flood devices?

Whirlpool recommends that appliances be direct connected to the water supply for optimum machine performance. Using anti-flood devices can reduce the water pressure and amount of water entering the appliance.
