In your problem you describe that you are getting hot water are you getting cold water too?. Make sure on the water valves are on the full open setting to eliminate a water pressure diffrence and any other valves connected to those water lines. If that checks out check for clogs in the hoses and filters that could be backed up. If that dosent fix the problem then its in the washer either the hot/ cold regulators or the timer.

Not heating


Hi Pam:
The water enters the washer via hot and cold hoses.
Either your hot water heater is not working, or the hot water solenoid control on the washer is not working.
There may be a dial with settings for wash temperature.
I'd be checking that control unit.

sounds like the mix valve on the washer is broken and not opening properly -- the mix valve is the valve that both hot and cold water are connected to on the back of the machine.. turn off water valves and remove the hoses,, remove the back panel from the washer -- the mixer is held in place by one little screw,, also mark the wires going to the mixer ( hot/cold ) --- remove the mixer valve and take it down to your local appliance repair shop and match it up to a new one -- install the new mixer and connect wires and panel and then hoses and all will be working good as new.

Yes, this is normal. All newer washer have auto temp control fills. This is to meet energy saving requirements. The less hot water used the more energy saved. Most hot settings on washers give out basically lukewarm water. The detergent made today is made to work well with cooler temperature water, so things will still come out clean.

I have a Kenmore 24032 \ 24036 Top Load Washer.


Sounds like the water faucet may not be turned on all the way, or maybe the inlet screen on the washer is clogged. Some hoses have a screen in the one end too. Either way it appears to have a restriction somewhere.

Washer wont allow cold water


Mixing valve should lock out the hot water when on the cold water setting. Either your hoses are crossed, or the mixing valve is flipped. To see if one of these is true, try it on a hot water setting to see if cold water comes in, or try just swapping the water hoses.

Wash cycle water is not hot for Speed Queen AWS53NW


Possibly a stupid answer..most water supplies at the hose connection have valves...turn off or at least reduce the amount of cold water with valve closed or partially open.
