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.
