Water temperature is not hot enough

The water temperature was used to be 160F. Currently, it's only 140F. I have checked the inlet hot water. It is 120F which matches the hot water temperature set at water tank. How can I increase the hot water temperature back to 160F or 170F? Thanks for your advice.

    I have a JET TECH 18DP. wash water temp. gauge indicates 78c, but actual temp. from our district health inspector's own thomermeter shows 67c. She tried three times, but same result hence failed to pass the health inspection. What could be a cause for this issue? Any response will be appreciated.

Hi there,

Mr Mark Evans is mistaken. In this model, there are two heaters, One for the rinse water (should go up to 85C, and 90C on some serial numbers) and one for keeping the wash water at 60C.

The fact that you're not getting proper rinse temperature maybe caused by a couple of factors. One, like mr Evans wrote, the controller or thermostat may need some adjustment. those are normally pre-set however they are adjustable. Might be able to gain a few more degrees. Two, water pressure may also play a role. to high water pressure will cause to cool down the booster too quickly and will vaporise your rinse water. water pressure should be at 25 PSI. On the other hand, any pressure below 20PSI will also give you poor results.

Mr Evans is right about waiting for the unit to have fully heathed up before the test is started.

If the unit is older than two years, I would check the washarm, make sure they are in good shape. Often a split at the bushing will cause loss of pressure. that is common to most Jet-Tech product.

And for last, if you have any mineral builtup in the unit, well this will cause all sort of problems.

On the F18, the gauges are not really acurate, often off by 10C. An external themometer is needed for acurate reading.

Hope this helps.

The heater in the unit is supposed to heat both the wash water and the rinse water.
if it is not, then you have a problem in a controller or an element.
how are you determining the temperature and are you waiting for the unit to signal ready before you test it?

Tip

I'm having the FH error. I'm am currently having plumbing troubles after leaving...


This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model FRONT LOADERS displaying the “FH” error code.

"F/H" indicates that either you have no water coming into the washer, or very little water.

If you have NO water coming into the wash tub after 30 seconds the error code is displayed. Check the following:

- Inlet water valve may be clogged. Clean inlet screens if necessary.
- Make sure water taps are on.
- Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.

If you HAVE water filling the wash tub, and after 8 minutes, 10.5 gallons of water has been detected by the flowmeter, but there has not been a detected a Pressure Switch trip, the inlet valves are turned off and the error code is displayed. Check the following:

- Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem. Click the following link for instructions: http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning
- Verify Drain Pump operation.
- Verify Flowmeter operation.
- Verify the Pressure Switch hoses are intact and connected properly.

To access the Drain Pump - UNPLUG the washer and take the lower panel under the door off by removing the three screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Propping the front feet of the washer up can make access much easier. I use a couple small blocks of wood. With the screws removed, the panel should drop down then come off. If it sticks, tap either side and it should come free. The pump is located directly under the wash tub in the front of the washer. Verify the electrical connections are good and that the pump is running. If not, click on the following link to check the pump for obstructions:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385845-checking_drain_pump_in_whirlpool_duet

To access the Flowmeter and Pressure Switch – remove the three screws in the top panel along the back of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel should slide back, then, lift off. The flowmeter will be located on the left-hand side of the washer (facing from the front) between the inlet valve and dispenser. It’s a small white plastic device with hoses attached. The pressure switch is located on the right-hand side of the washer in the rear. It is a round plastic device with electrical connections and a hose attached.


There should be a tech sheet directly behind the panel or attached to one of the interior cabinet walls. Please refer to this sheet to learn how to perform diagnostics, how to locate the components mentioned, and the specific measurements required determining if the components are good or bad.

I hope this helpful. Please post back if you can't find the tech sheet and/or need further assistance.

Bf72 not doing the wash cycle correctly


If you are using hot water connection then check the temperature of incoming water is hot enough. If cold water inlet only is used then most likely the heater element or thermostat in the dishwasher is faulty and the water is not heating enough.

Hot water fills with hot and cold not strictly hot what is the fix


see the causes: and proceed with common sense. God bless you
Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally. If you're sure the machine isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests: Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on. Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct. Is there hot water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, completely replace it.

No warm water coming out of the clotheswasher


Turn the cold water valve about half way closed or maybe more to allow enough hot water to mix with it and make it warm

Washer only has cold water. Hot water is good to machine but only cold water enters machine on warm cycle, no water ar all on hot cycle.


Hello there
The Water System temperature sensor is normally what is wrong with these units with this condition that you are experiencing
The water system consists of the hot and cold water inlet valves, a water temperature sensor, a water
flowmeter and control and the dispenser distribution system along with a traditional pressure switch.
Water Inlet Valves -
The hot and cold water inlet valves are located at the back of the washer. These valves receive a control
signal from the Central Control Unit to manage the temperature of incoming water. The temperatures
are determined by the specific wash cycle selected and a temperature sensor located in the wash tub.
To improve cleaning of heavily soiled clothing and to provide a sanitizing feature, the water temperature
can be increased through the use of a heating element located in the bottom of the tub

Hot water out of taps is not very hot.


What is hot? Above 122F causes scald within 30 seconds. Get a temperature reading at tap. Use a candy thermometer if need be. If you want 140F water then your gas valve needs replacing.
In most code areas it is now illegal to deliver tap water over 125F to a consumer faucet.
You may love 140F but you jeopardize kids and Seniors.

Dishes not dry enough & leak of water at sink vent device


HEATED DRY.Turns the drying heater on for fast drying.
ENERGY SAVER (no heat boost). Turns the drying heater off to save energy. Dishes will dry naturally over a longer period such as overnight. lf you need your dishes sooner, open the dishwasher door after the cycle is complete to reduce the natural drying time. Use of this option reduces the electrical energy used by this model approximately 7%. A rinse agent makes water flow off dishes quicker than usual. This lessens water spotting and makes drying faster, too.
Make sure inlet water temperature is correct.(SeePage6.)
Unload the bottom rack first.Water from dishes in the top rack may be spilling in to the
bottom rack.
Check for improper loading.Dishes shouldn’t nest together. Avoid overloading. Check the rinse agent dispenser to see that it’s not empty.

Inlet temperature....Good Dish washing starts with hot water, To get dishes clean and dry,you will need hot water.To help you get
water of the proper temperature, your dish washer automatically heats the water in the wash cycle. For good washing and drying , the entering water must be at least 120°E To prevent dish damage,
inlet water should not exceed 150”F. How to test water temperature: Check the water temperature inside your dishwasher with a candy or meat thermometer. Let the dishwasher run through
one fill and pump out cycle, then let the dishwasher fill with water
the second time. When you hear the water stop filling, unlatch the door and slowly open it. Measure the temperature of the water in the bottom of the tub this way: Remove the silverware basket and
place a candy or meat thermometer in the water towards the middle of the tub. If the temperature is less than 120”F,you will not get good washing results. Higher water temperature is needed to dissolve grease and activate powder detergents. If the unit is a long way from the DW you may need to let the water run in the sink until hot before starting the DW....or if is a cold day and water has not been used in a while the pipes could be cold....also if you have just used the hot water ( washer, shower...etc) give it time to recover first before using DW....All of the above mentioned material is straight out of the Users guide...but you may have an element that is going out also...so check the temp of your water and open it during the drying cycle to see if it is hot or at least warm inside...if not your element may need to be replaced...

I hope this helps...have a great day & good luck...please rate my effort.... the Fang.
