I have 2010 Frigidaire washer model# FTW3011Kwo> The temperature is always on hot>Never has cold worked in a year> It does not have clogged inlet valve and I reversed hoses to keep from ruining dark...

I would start by replacing the water control valve-this is right where the water supply connect to the washer-when you switched the hoses to wash darks then you got cold water-this tells me one side of that valve is stuck-they do go bad-cheers Denny

Cold water fills very slowly

It's possible that sediment or a mineral buildup is in the water solenoid valve itself where you connect the hose. Try cleaning its screen, if this doesn't work, replace the part.

I moved my washer and didn't notice how the hoses were connected. Is the hot on top or bottom? Thanks

There should be markings on the washer near the inlet valve that will have a "H" or "C" for hot or cold. If not, hook the hoses up and run cold water only. If the water comes out hot, you will know that the hoses are crossed. It won't hurt anything to run the machine this way.

My new Roper washer ... when on the Hot wash setting ... only allows a little hot water in and a bunch of cold water in ... so you endup with a warm water wash ... is that normal ??? Why can't I get a...

Hi, when you use the hot water selector switch, it should only supply hot water. The hot water will fill more slower then cold, but you should not be getting any cold water what so ever. You say it is a new washer. You can try this. Try and slide the machine out enough to get to the supply hoses to where they connect to the washer inlet fittings. Unplug the washer. The hot water at the faucet should always be the left one. On the washer, they will be marked with a C and a H, cold, hot. Use a flash light to make sure they are in the right place. If they are, turn off both faucets. Now, remove the hot water hose where it is connected to washer. Hold it in the tub, and turn the water to this hose only on. See if the water gets really hot like it should. If not, shut off water, and do the same using the other hose. The reason is, sometimes the hoses may be switched, or the plumbing may be backward. See if the right faucet is putting out cold. If all seems to be correct, you have a problem with the water fill solenoid. If the machine is still under warranty, call your repair man. This is something you cannot take on your self. Checking the hoses like I asked may be your problem, but if not you will need to have it looked at or live with the way it is to save you $$$$. I wish you the best on this. You may need to use a pair of pliers to loosen the hoses also.

I have a model WFE1070BD*CD,(5 months old) does this machine use cold water ? Both hot and cold taps were connected at installation but on delicate wash clothes are still very hot .

Check the hose connections on the back.My guess is the lines are crossed. Double check: Is the cold water supply piped to the cold inlet on the washer and the hot water piped to hot inlet? They may be reversed either on the hoses or in the wall.
To check the in-wall piping, feel the the hose bibb marked cold...well, is it? cold I mean. If it is hot, the pipes are crossed in the wall. If it's cold, check that the hose is running to the inlet marked C or cold, or is blue. If it isn't your inlets are crossed. Either way, switch the hoses and you should be good.

I have the valve for the water now how do i change it

If you are talking about replacing the water inlet valve, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG washer and turn off water supply.
2. Disconnect water inlet hoses from the back of the washer.
3. Remove the washer top panel by removing the three screws in the back of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off.
4. The inlet valve will be located in the left-rear of the washer (as viewed from the front). Remove the dispenser hose and electrical connections from the water inlet valve, followed by the mounting screw(s). The valve should easily come out of the washer. NOTE: Accessing the valve from the rear or left side of the washer access easier.
5. Install new valve in the reverse order of the steps I provided. Make sure you get the dispenser hose connected correctly so it does not leak AND make sure the electrical connections are not crossed (they should be marked HOT or COLD - if not, label them BEFORE removing.)
6. Connect water supply lines making sure they are not crossed. If you have the original manufacturer's hoses, they will be marked RED for hot and BLUE for COLD. It's also printed on the back of the washer.

Read through the instructions and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this answers your question.

Hot water just trickles in both of my Kenmore top loader washers

Try reversing hot for cold hoses and see what happens. That will test your valves, hot water pressure, etc. As far as I know, the valve screens are right where the hoses hook up.

The E-70 code means your hot and cold water hoses are hooked up backwards. Double check that your hoses are hooked up correctly.
