How does the system of the Gulf of water in automatic washing machines?

  • Dec 24, 2019

This system organizes the flow of water in the tank car at the right time and in the right quantity.

The first element is the inlet hose. One end with a threaded coupling is attached to the cold water pipe, the other to the filler neck.

Filler pipe is part of a valve or valves (in a double embodiment), there is installed a removable strainer.

Filler valve, depending on the model, can be double or single, one-way valve used on older models. In modern models used Two valve the water supply. One-on rinse and the other in the main wash.

They operate on the principle of the solenoid valve. In the coil of the electromagnet is energized (usually 220 volts, but there are exceptions), electromagnetic field is attracted stem connected to the locking plate, the channel opens and water passes through valve.

The voltage across the valve are supplied with the control module, depending on the wash program.

After the water enters the valve compartments poroshkopriemnika. It is mixed with a powder or other additives and enters the tank.

Buck and poroshkopriemnik connects the rubber corrugated pipe. It is fixed by clamps, a large supply of tension required at the drum vibrations.

Bay water system rarely goes down, but still has some of the typical faults:

  • clogging of the strainer in the filler pipe, takes place because of the low quality water is removed by cleaning the filter;
  • failure of the flood valve occurs due to coarse particles falling under the valve plate (Samozaliv), or because of a failure of the electromagnet coil (burnout), cleaning is eliminated or valve replacement;
  • couplers destruction occurs due to mechanical damage (abrasion, bending, etc.) and due to natural deterioration of the material, the replacement is eliminated.

The faults with the waters of the bay control module signals via the display and a specific error code system.
