I purchased a Haier Genesis HLT364XXQ top load washer. It works great except that I am not able to wash in hot water. I contacted Haier and they sent a repairman. He tells me there is nothing wrong with the washer. He said it is programmed to only allow so much hot water to enter the machine. The valve is working fine - it has been replaced just to be sure. When I try to wash in hot water, the washer allows the cold water to come on all the way, but just short little bursts of hot water. This results in room temperature water, instead of hot. Has anyone had this problem? Can the washer be reprogrammed? I like the washer, but I need to wash some things in hot water. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Paul
Re: Haier Genesis HLT364XXQ CAN'T GET HOT WATER WASH
Hey Paul, you don't have to wash anything in hot water. Hot water only wastes money and does nothing, in my opinion, to get anything cleaner. It does ,however set the stains. To kill any thing the water has to be 212 degrees [ boiling ]I have not used hot water for over 40 years and our clothes are coming out clean. Just set the machine on cold. I put a twoway spigot on my cold tap and put the hot water and cold water together incase someone breaks in and does my laundry. Barry

Turn off the water, take off the hoses and clean the screens therein. Put hoses back on and it should work. You may want to flush the hoses before connecting back to the washer just to be sure water is flowing.
The problem is a bad hot water solenoid on the water inlet valve (also known as a mixing valve). There is a separate solenoid for hot and cold water. If the hot water solenoid fails, you will not have any warm or hot water. Replacement is simple and inexpensive. The following link explains how to access and replace the inlet valve on a Kenmore top loading washer:
All these sites offer great service. Prices vary between them so shop and compare.
If you have any questions about this repair, or have need additional assistance, please post back with your complete model number (located along the wash tub rim under the washer lid). I hope this helps you.
NOTE: Kenmore is manufactured by Whirlpool, so these instructions do apply.
Make about 3 quarts of boiling water on the stove. Pour one cup of bleach, and a few capfuls of pine sol into the washer (just pour them directly into the washer through the front door.) Now, if you have a faucet near the washer, turn on the hot water until the water is hot- then turn it off.
Now start a "hot" load, and after the water starts to fill, pause it, and add the really hot stove water. This will raise the water level high enough to wash off all the gunk that has built up between the spinning inner barrel of the washer and the outer barrel in which it sits.
For future reference... only use HE detergent, never use liquid fabric softener, always take the clothes out as soon as possible after the load is finished, and leave the door open when you are done.
The first thing seems to be the timer,or the water level switch. Try filling the washer with water by hand, if it starts to agitate after being filled its the timer, if not it is the water level switch, let me know if you need further assistance.
OK this should not happen. It might be that the connectors to the watervalve is lose. E4 is a sign that the watervalves are closed. You should contact the store you bought it from and have them give you a replacement. Do not open it for now as it will void your warranty. You know it is not the pressure as the other never had this problem
This however is the link for all the parts you need. or might need. LINK
Have a good one and good luck changing this one out and please dont take no for an answer
