Help with Watts intelliflow automatic washing machine shutoff val
My washing machine is not drawing cold water. I believe that the problem is the Watts intelliflow automtic washing machine shutoff valve as it malfunctioned last year in almost the same manner as now except it was the hot draw at that time. You can hear the Bosch trying to draw water, no water at all if the cycle is set to cold, and no water for rinse. Trouble shooting with the user pamphlet guide number 3 - NO water from one hose - in this case cold - Green LED ON, YELLOW LED ONMY PROBLEM, other than a washing machine that isn't working, is that I cannot figure out how to shut off the water supply to check the strainers. Actually I can't find the valves. The washing machine was moved upstairs with the remodel, hence the shut off unit, and literally there is no valve like what I'm used to seeing. I have a cut out where the auto shut off box sits and drain hose fits. I literally cannot figure out how the water shuts off. Is it possible that the valve sits behind the intelliflow unit - if so how do I access it without flooding the house. There is a sink to the left of the w/d but no valve there either - just the lines to the sink.
Responses appreciated as I am up to my eyeballs in dirty laundry and tension is running high over here.....
SECOND QUESTION - is there a better type of automatic shut off unit as this has broken twice in two years.
