Cold water isn't coming on, only hot?

Not sure what ur saying have u tried changing the hot cold hoses and see what happens? u may have a bad water inlet valve or a bad water temperature switch? first make sure ur getting hot from the house outlet, u can check with a multi meter for continuity to see if either is out

Legionella, Legionnaire's, Hot Water Heaters and Mixing Valves

Many people are turning their <b>hot water heaters</b> down to dangerously low temperatures to try to <b>save fuel or energy</b>. What they do not know is that they are playing a very dangerous game with a deadly disease.<br /> <br /> Your water heater can be a very deadly incubator for the deadly <b>Legonella Bacteria</b>. In an effort to <b>save money</b> a lot of people have made the decision to turn the <b>water temperature</b> on their water heater down to very low temperatures.<b> Temperatures of under 140F</b> can allow the<b> bacteria</b> to grow in your<b> hot water heater</b>. <br /> The way to combat this problem is to<b> make sure that the temperature for your hot water heater is over 140F</b>. The problem that is caused by those temperatures is that <b>140F water can be dangerous</b> because of the<b> risk of scalding</b>. This risk is especially high for young children and older adults. <br /> <br /> The question then becomes, what do you do to make sure that either of these problems are not a risk in your home. The answer to this question is to install a device called a <b>mixing valve</b>. <br /> <br /> The <b>mixing valve mixes some cold water with the hot water</b> coming from the hot water heater. This mixing valve takes the temperature of the hot water down to a temperature that will not hurt people with tender skin. A <b>water temperature of under 120F</b> will give people time to react to hot water before it hurts them. The cooler water in the piping going to your faucet will not have the time to grow bad bacteria before you use it.<br /> <br /> To review the thing you need to remember about this problem. <b>Keep your water in your heater higher than 140F</b> to keep the bad stuff from forming. You want the <b>water coming out of your faucet needs to be under 120F</b> to keep from <b>scalding</b> people in your home. And, a mixing valve will do the job of cooling off your water to a safe temperature. <br /> <br /> If you are thinking of turning your water temperatures down be careful. Check into installing a mixing valve instead and keep your family safe.

My Bristan Meridian Show start ok with hot water then after a few minutes the water runs cold. Even if you try and increase the temp it still remains cold. You can switch of the shower and start again...

It sounds like 1 of 2 things to me. I will start wit hot water heater. The first test for the water heater is to have someone run the hot water while you hold the hot and cold pipes and see if the water is coming out of the water heater cold when the shower goes cold. Of the water heater is cold coming out then the problem is in the heater. ether a lower element is bad or the dip tube is broken at the top of the tank. if the hot water heater continues to put out hot water when the shower goes cold then it has to be the mixing valve for the hot and cold mix at the shower and that valve will have to be repaired or replaced. hope this gives you a good start. let me know if I can help further.

On our Model LAT9635AAE washing machine when cycle is on cold/cold the water fills at a very slow flow. If (while water flowing on cold) the water temp switch is switched to warm and back to cold the cold...

You have a bad fill (mix) solenoid valve. The valve in the solenoid is hanging up and by switching it back and fourth between hot and cold its just working its way to the proper position..You were on the right track.....

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.

Was working fine and went to put in 2nd load and water came out for a second and then all together stopped

hmm, I can think of a few things that would cause that.

First thought would be the water valve: this is a valve that has two solenoids on it, one for hot and one for cold they mix to one outlet that goes to a spout into your washtub. Try different temperature settings for the water. If cold does not work, see if warm does, if it's nothing but hot water coming out, then it's either the valve or your timer.

Second is the timer's not sending power to the water valve to turn it on.

Third would be the water level switch, if it is bad it may be prematurely telling the washer to go into agitate mode. If after the water stopped it went to agitate mode then it very well could be the water level switch.

Does not fill with water. There are 3 wires to the water level control it is getting power to the brown wire but not to the pink wire. The best I can tell it is not actuating the water control solinoids....

Find the wiring diagram, it sounds like you have power to the pressure switch and none coming out. you need to look at the wiring diagram and determine which color wire runs to the water valve.

Now be very careful and check for power out of the pressure switch, with the timer on at the beginning of the wash cycle where the machine would fill with water, if you have power coming from the pressure switch you could have a bad mixing valve.

Is the water turned on for both the Hot and Cold supply?

If you select cold does the machine fill, with cold? also check warm, and Hot. if the macine fills with any water the pressure switch is not you problem. It could be the mixing valve.
