Frontloader washes and rinses on cold all cycles but whites

Ever since we bought the machine new (4 yrs ago) the cold cycle for all types begins to fill as normal then the rinse light comes on and the machine begins to drain the water it's filling with. So, I babysit the machine and switch to warm then it stops draining. I've adjusted the water coming thinking the cold water is filling so fast that the it begins to drain. The drain hose is 40" from the floor. The water spout is a bit lower than 40". Any ideas before I call it in?

Water will come in at beginning of cycle on a Hot/Cold wash but not in rinse cycle?

because the rinse uses cold water and u may have a cold water issue with the water inlet valve, the water inlet valve cold coil may have gone bad. test it with a meter and voltage

After 2 yrs. the cold/cold selection doesn't work at all but the other selections give me hot h2o only. Also, rinse cycles just stopped working!

Your water inlet valve has 2 electric coils on it. One for hot --one for cold. The cold is probably bad. Most newer machines use COLD rinse only so if no cold fill it just stops in the rinse cycle. Replace the inlet valve which is the part on the machine back the hoses hook to.

We have a Whirlpool 7KG frontloader washing machine (6th sense) model AWM8121. The problem is that the door light is flashing, the cycle has stopped at rinse (rinse light is on) and the machine is not...

We have an awm8121 and there seems to be a fault on the Spin cycle indicators with th 0 RPM and the 800 RPM flashing..

We can't seem to get the frontloader to finish the drain cycle and continue into the next was.

The last load of washing was still saturated when we managed to open the door.

No cold rinse, only hot

Either the wires have come loose on the water valve or you have a defective water valve.Open the lid and look at the water valve. Are all wires connected?
If yes, replace the water valve.

Water only fills the machine in certain parts of cycle

a 90* wash will fill mainly with hot water / a 40* wash will fill mainly with cold water, this is normal action, rinses fill up with cold water only

is this what you are describing, if so thats normal, especially if its doing the job correctly
