No warm or hot water

The machine will only fill and wash with cold water. If the setting is on warm/cold or warm/warm..it will still run only with cold water. If hot/warm is selected, the machine won't even fill.

The easiest possibility is no hot water coming from supply,I have seen the valve turned off,input hose normaly has a filter where it attatches to the machine and they can get clogged.If neither of these solves problem just try hot valve to confirm water supply does work and if so more than likely the valve that hoses are connected to likely source of problem.

SOURCE: mav6000awq water fill problem

Check first the filters on the cold inlet water line (both sides). Then, if problem still exist - check that the cold inlet water valve works(it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine)). If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and doesn't work - You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace it for a new one. Good luck

SOURCE: no hot water from my washer

The problem is your HOT water solenoid on the water inlet valve. On some washers this is also known as the mixing valve. Since the washer uses hot water for both the hot and warm settings, its logical to assume you have a solenoid that isn't operating. The following link gives you the necessary steps to replace the inlet valve (if necessary):

http://www.fixya.com/support/r600647-replacing_water_inlet_valve_kenmore

The first thing you can try is to determine if the valve may be clogged. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, sediment can build up in the filter screens of the valve. You can access by turning off the water supply and removing the hose from the back of the washer. The sediment screens are located in the valve fitting. Sometimes the hoses have restrictor screens in the ends that can also clog or obstruct water. Try cleaning with some distilled vinegar and cotton swabs to dissolve any deposits.

Another source of the problem, could be the electrical connection to the solenoid. With the exterior washer case removed, you can access the electrical connections to the valve and remove them. Clean the contacts if corroded.

If all these preliminary steps do not solve your problem, replace the valve. A replacement can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. Just type in your model number for your search criteria. All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop around for the best price.

If you have questions along the way, let me know. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: The washing machine won't start if

Check the cold water solenoid. If a meter is not available you can swap the hot and cold wires and see if the symptom changes to hot water when cold is selected. If so the mixing valve needs replaced. If no then further testing of the wire harness and timer circuit are needed.

SOURCE: Fills cold and warm but not hot

This is a common problem with hot water lines to washing machines. The hose connecting the washing machine to the hot water supply has a small screen in the inlet of the hose. These are used to keep grit, etc from getting into the washing machine and causing bigger problems.
Here's what to do:
Pull the washing machine away from the wall a little so you can access the shut-off's. Turn off the hot and the cold water valves.
Take the hot water hose off the valve and check the screen in the rubber washer of the inlet hose. Replacement screen/washers are available at local hardware stores for a couple bucks.
You can clean the old ones, just be careful not to damage the rubber washer because that's what keeps your hose from leaking when you reinstall it on your faucet.
While you're at it, clean the cold water screen as well.
REcheck your fill on a hot cycle... you've most likely solved your issue!

EW1200 is rinsing in hot water how do we change that


Hot wash, hot rinse is for 'whites'. Cold wash, cold rinse is for 'colors'. Warm wash, cold or warm rinse is for 'permanent press'. Check your settings to see if you have these options. Double check the hoses, put the machine on cold fill and feel the hoses.
Has someone worked on the machine and possibly put the wires on the solenoids wrong? Easy mistake to make.
