This sounds like a energy saving switch,I would check your inlet screens first. then we can go from there.

My kenmore serie 300 washer only wash with cold wather no hot wather


If I understand, you are saying that you are not getting any hot water coming into the washer. First, I would make sure that you have hot water available at the washer spigots. SLOWLY unscrew the hot water hose at the hot water spigot and see if you have hot water available. If you do, the problem is usually at the water inlet solenoids, or if you are lucky, the water screen filter. Turn off the how water spigot and unscrew the hose at the washer. There is a screen there at the washer water inlet, see if it is clogged. If not, the problem is most likely the solenoids. To replace the solenoid unit requires some disassembly of the washer.

I have a 1996 volkswagon jetta and I removed the thermostat but the temperature guage is still going pass half. Is there anyway to get the air out of the system and solve this overheating problem?


hallo
without termostat, start the car. in one minute ideling, both hoses from cooller should be warm.
If only top one is warm, check if the hose from front wather cooller to expansion tank is blocked (small one on top). usualy it is blocked on wather cooller itself .if OK, change wather pump.
also check if presure is bildinh inside wather sistem. that indicate head gasket or head itself should be checked
If you had remove the termostat, there can be no air inside the engine (if wather is inside).Even with termostat present, VW has no problem with air pockets.If your temp.go pass half when car is standing still, that is ok, but when driving must drop down.

Washer is rinsing with hot wateer nomatter what temp. setting is used. I have tried to switch hoses twice now, no difference in rinse but now on correct wash temp.


The MAH5500 series washers have automatic temperature control functions so the washer can control water temp regardless of water heater settings and other factors. I would say either your definition of "hot" is not truly "hot" (over 110 degrees), or the washer's ability to sense has failed (which would also affect fill temp on "wash" fills also). If someone has worked on the washer recently, maybe they reversed the wiring to the water valves inside the machine? ATC temps are as follows: Cold 70-90, warm 90-110, and hot is unregulated at 110 degrees and up. These are normal temp ranges for ATC controlled machines, and are completely safe for fabrics.

Maytag washer/hot and cold water


Some whirlpool washers have had A similar problem. They had a intermittent water temperature switch issue. Sometimes they put hot water in when cold was selected. This is probably the same problem as yours. I would replace the water temp switch.

Water temperature is inconsistent


hey there sounds like your hot falve is faulty, if it is faulty they tend to either switch off and not open to let water in, or not open at all, get a service tech to look at you hot valve.

2000 Elantra Overheating


First when vehicle is cold like in the morning check and make sure that the vehicle has enough coolant/ antifreeze in radiator and reservoir. If coolant is need use a 50/50 mixture of water and antifreeze. You will need some time to do this let car run at idle until the temp guage is in the middle NOT+ normal operating temperature. At this point if the thermostat should be in the open position. Let vehicle run and check to make sure that radiator fan comes on. This should come on when guage is about midway/half way. If temperature rises above half going to h/hot and fan doesn't come on, you either have a BAD FAN BAD FAN SWITCH BAD FAN RELAY OR BLOWN FAN SWITCH FUSE. You will need to check all of the following I will help if its needed. If fan comes on and doesn't go off and vehicle continues to get hot even with fan running. Feel radiator hoses and see if the lower radiator hose is cool/cold. If it is you have thermostat that stuck closed. Replace thermostat and fix problem. If all the above is good and vehicle continues to over heat. THE BAD NEW IS THAT YOU MAY HAVE A BLOWN HEAD GASKET /CRACKED HEAD /BROKEN WATER JACKET. Basically you will need a HEAD JOB at least a head gasket. ONe tell tail sign of this is oil looking like milkshake/chocolate milk-a creamish while residue in oil or antifreeze. Contact if you need hel0p. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Rinse cycle temperature


You may have a problem with your Temp Switch or the Sensor Thermistor.  Very easy to check and fix depending on your technical ability.  Both of these parts are connected off the Automatic Temperature Control Board.
