Question about LG WM-1832C Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Hot water goes into cold water washes

Whenever I chose to do a cold water wash, the water starts off cold but then gets piping hot! It doesn't matter what type of cycle I pick.

We've turned off the hot water pipe and ran the cycle, but then NO water came out.

We have switched the hoses to the water pipes, but all that did was start the cycle with hot water and then it gets warm, but no where near cold.

The washer is 5 years old and never had this problem before so any help would be appreciated!!

    This makes sense...we just moved to Washington from California and it didn't get this cold down there. Thank you so much!!!

It is normal for the machine to cycle between hot and cold water when filling even if selecting a cold cycle. The reason for this is because even a cold cycle requires the water temperature to be 78F for the soap to break up efficiently.

During the cold months the water in your pipes is probably less than 78F so the machine will need to add some hot water to bring it up to this temperature. Basically, it is adding cold and then hot water to maintain a temperature in the tub of 78F for cold water cycles.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

DOES MY WIXL143S INDESIT USE HOT OR COLD MAINS


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

That's easy to tell- if it has 2 inlet pipe/hose connections at the back (as opposed to the outlet pipe which is permanently connected to the washer and hooks over the outlet drain) then it is a hot and cold fill. If there is only one inlet pipe it is cold fill only. Either type HAS to have a cold fill supply- to lower the temperature of the hot water for cool washes AND for rinsing which is normally cold water only.

If you have only a cold water tap/fawcet available for the washer and it is a hot and cold fill you will need to purchase, from a hardware (?) store, a 'Y' adapter. Upside down the single end (internal thread) screws into the cold water supply and the hot and cold washer pipes screw into the double end (external threads). The washer is fooled into thinking it has hot and cold! When it expects hot, it opens its hot valve but instead gets the cold water and has to heat it up. It will therefore take longer for the machine to do the washing. When it wants cold for rinses, it opens its cold valve and gets the same water! Simple ;-0)

Hope this has clarified!

I believe the water temp switch is bad. It will start filling on warm then stop if I put it on hot it will fill with cold water. I have cut the hot water off to achieve this but when it reaches rinse it...


it sounds to me that the hoses are connected to the machine incorrectly. Typically if the plumber ran the water lines behind washer correctly the hot pipe is on the left and the cold pipe is on the right sometimes thats backward and be determined by touching hoses while filling on warm setting and see which hose feels hot. On the back of washer they where they connect hot goes on the bottom and cold on top

GOT GERMAN INSTRUCTION BOOK AND OPERATING GUIDE NEED ENGLISH ONE. PLUS ONLY ONE WATER PIPE DO I NEED A CONNECTOR PIPE TO CONNECT HOT AND COLD WATER PIPES INTO ONE OR DOES THE MACHINE HEAT THE WATER UP ITS...


for the instruction manual... you can "googe" search online for it...type your brand name in the search window with "support" and you'll most likely find the factory website with manual downloads.
For the water issue: most washers are designed to connect to a hot and cold water supply. If yours is a one water pipe connection, and you're ok with cold water washes, I'd recommend supplying water to both the hot and cold connections of the washer, so you don't have any mishaps by hitting the wrong wash cycle and not getting any water. You could purchase a simple hose bib splitter fo accomplish this.
If however, you want hot water, sounds like a plumbing job to bring hot water to the washer's location.
It won't hurt the machine to run cold water to both sides...you just won't get the hot water cleaning benefit.

Orientation of inlet pipes


I am not to sure if this answers your question but I think you are asking which way the hot and cold hoses connect to the wasing machine? if this is the case if you look on the back of the washing machine you will see stamped in the metel a H for hot connect the hot water inlet hose to this, If it is not marked, hook up the hot water hose to the washing machine and place the water temp selector to hot and turn machine on if hot water comes out you have the correct hose hooked up,if not then the cold water hose goes were you hooked up the hot water hose. hope this helps

Washing maching won't rinse in cold water


hi is this hot and cold water piped machine? ie two connections on rear of machine for hot and cold pipes ? if so are your pipes connected properly on machine and the water supplies? if cold supply is connected to hot supply then wash inlet allows water in washer then washes in cold? but when rinse is due? the elec valve that has hot water pipe connected?? is failing to open allowing water flow of hot on rinse so advise recheck pipes for flow of water from both? when disconnected from machine if flow ok then possible valve blocked/faulty hope you can understand above? if you can give more info on your machine it would help to offer a remedy?

No cold rinse


check to see that the hot and cold pipes are not crossed over
ie the hot pipe is on the cold tap
when machine goes into rinse cycle it only uses cold water
