No hot water


Not quite enough information to go on here ... the machine connects to hot and cold water or cold water only? If cold only, is it designed to heat its own water?

If connected to hot water ... some newer machines are dependent on sufficient water pressure. Check pressure of hot water is adequate at the tap (and that the water is hot). Check for a blocked filter in the water inlet house at the point of connection to the rear of the machine (remove the hose to check).

Possible Mixing valve Problem


I would pull the lines off the back and check the inlet filter on the hot and cold sides of the water inlet and clean the screen style filter. If you just use cold is the water cold if the cold water valve was bad then you would get no cold wate when set to cold.

The wm does not accept cold water. I put it on cold cycle and it does not work the water line is fine... what could be the problem ?


Why has nobody mentioned the fact that if you “draw off” hot water using a tap beside the washing machine you can get “instant” hot water to your hot-fill. I have been doing this for years – now that all my hot water is heated by a crabon-neutral energy source (either wood or solar) I feel it is even more energy efficient.
As for water consumption, my house has a secondary return pipe on the hot water circuit with a temperature sensor fitted to the pump so that it only switches on when you turn a hot water tap on – you than turn the tap off, wait 5-10 minutes while the water circulates, then turn it on again, by which time the hot water only has ashort distance to travel and you don’t waster much down the drain.
However, I have been interested to read about the pros of cold fill only, especially the arguments about such a small volume of water being used anyway and the possibly improved wash performance? Also, I was dismayed to read that washing machines with hot and cold fill don’t use the hot wate very efficiently.
So would I be better off going for a hot and cold machine while they’re still available or going for a high-efficiency cold fill only machine? I am still minded to get an LG with hot and cold fill… comments please?

Why is my warm water is cold? The hot is hot and cold is cold but warm is cold.


There is too much pressure on the cold feed, reduce the pressure on the cold by partly closing off the tap on the cold.
Or ensure the hot feed is fully open and not blocked, check if there are filters inline - remove the feed pipes at the washer end and look into the inlet valves - clear if blocked.
The inlet valve is common to hot and cold water with only a small pipe to fill the machine, the cold water is being forced back up the hot water pipe due to the pressure you can feel the pipe cool down after running hot then go to warm, if hot water is flowing the pipe will stay hot, if not then cold is going up the hot pipe.

Cold water fill


You need to open the back and follow the cold water hose to the solenoid. Tap the solenoid a few times wile you are trying to use cold wated. If not check for power at the 2 wires that go to this solenoid, if you gout power then you need to replace your cold water solenoid. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer, thanks.

No hot water to wash


Is the hot water hot that is coming to the washer? Are you using the correct settings on the unit? If yes to both then either the solinoid water valve is bad or the timer switch unit is bad. Try going to a totally hot water setting. While turning on the machine feel of the hot water line at the machine and see if you notice a buzz or feel a click as you turn on the machine. On this setting does water run in and is it hot or cold. If water runs and it is cold try going to a total cold setting and see if you get cold or hot water. Is this a new setup or has it been working and stopped? If new, you could have the hoses connected backward. If you get water in both hot and cold settings but cold both ways then your hot water heater is not working....let me know....

No cold water regardless of setting


2 things it can be if your water pipe were you connect the hose too under the sink has a plastic turn handle to switch the water back on then it is most likely that it has sheard inside it undue the screw that holds it on pull the plastic cover off and with pliers turn until you hear the wate rcome through if not then it will be the solenoid inside your washer that has become faulty were the pipe connects to m8
