Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3t Front Load Washer
My wife and I just purchased a Kenmore HE3t washer and dryer for our new house, and we're not sure if the washer is working properly. Originally, the hot and cold water lines were switched (due to the previous homeowner installing everything backwards). We realized this after the first load came out steaming.
I followed the pipes from the water heater and switched the lines to ensure that the hoses were hooked up properly. I know that they are, because the cold hose is cool to the touch, and the hot hose is warm to the touch. However, the next load still came out steaming hot.
Both loads were done on the same cycle (normal), with a cold wash selected. But regardless of the wash temperature, a cold rinse is supposed to be used. So why are the clothes coming out hot?
Try cycling a cold/cold wash and see how that comes out.. if it comes out hot then your water inlet valve is letting hot water in when it shouldn't.. conversely, try cycling a hot/hot wash and see that it does indeed come out hot... ( quick tests to verify performance)..hope this helps.
