Which cycle is the hottest

Hi Shonda.

the answer will depend a bit on the specific washing machine you have, and on the settings. There will usually be settings of hot, warm, and cold for both the wash and rinse cycle. A hot wash and hot rinse will keep you at the highest overall temperature during the wash.

There are a number of washers that have internal water heaters that can optionally be activated, usually with a panel switch. This lets them boost the water temperature in the event that the water coming from your water heater isn't that hot - say if you've turned the heater down so that kids won't scald themselves at a sink. The heater option, if there, will make the hot water hotter, though you'd have to look in the manual for you particular machine to see how much hotter.

Conversely, if you want hotter water in the machine, you could raise the setting for your water heater, though you should be mindful of whether this will endanger anyone. You'll also use more energy keeping the heater hotter, so bear that in mind.

Hope this helps, and Good Luck!

this can be a motor control fault, and sometimes a fault with the motor itself, test motor windings for equal resistance, and check motor physically for wear / damage. replace motor controller.

Hi christophe if your beko wma10w washing machine wont drain or has a spin problem then you have to check the carbon brushes first.

Also check all waste pipes are clear and inspect the pump I have included this video below.

Keeps saying LE. Wont run. NEC Topload washing machine

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France, Frid afternoon, 14:24,

As you do not mention the model, I am going to guess it stands for 'Lock Error'. Either the lock itself is malfunctioning or the door lock sensor is, meaning that service is required. Sorry ;-0(
Good luck,

Washing machine wont spin and only drains when it wants to

This means to just restart the wash cycle. But I say the culprit is the lid safety switch. Make sure it is not stuck. This is the main reason washers will not spin.

Samsung smartwash keeps tripping the system

It could be the heating element. You could disconnect the element to test it is not leaking to earth. really you need an insulation meter to test this. always make sure you disconnect the machine first.

Pressing and holding the two centre buttons ie on/off and start/cancel together for a few seconds causes the machine to run in 'test' mode. Doing the same again puts it back to normal wash.
I nearly called an engineer once because my daughter causes it all of the time!
