SOURCE: Washer will won't run cold water cycle

Some washing machines allow cold water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.

If you're sure the machine is not working the way it used to--or should--check the following.

  • Is the cold water turned on? If not, turn it on.


  • Is the washer getting hot water but no cold water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct.


  • Is there cold water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you need to replace the valve.

  • Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

    P.S. – I would greatly appreciate a FixYa! rating if the solution I provided fixed or helped you fix your problem.

    Thank you for using FIXYA!

    SOURCE: Washer leaks during wash cycle

    Taking a top loader apart is simple if you follow these steps:

    1. Unplug washing machine.
    2. Remove console. This can be accomplished in one of two ways depending on which type of console you have.
    a. If the console has removable end caps, the caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the washer. The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front of the washer. There will be a screw under each end cap that you will need to remove.
    b. If the console does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under the front corner of each side and push in while lifting up. There is a retaining clip under each side that has to be released.
    3. Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer in its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.
    4. Under the console will be two large brass colored clips. Take a large flat blade screwdriver and place it in the groove of the clip on the washer top. With the screwdriver firmly in the groove, push away from you towards the back of the washer. This will release the clips.
    5. Disconnect the lid switch connector plug. This is the white colored plug on the washer top under the console.
    6. Remove the washer casing. Open the lid of the washer. Using one hand, grip under the front rim of the washer opening. Do not grab the wash tub, just the casing. Tilt the washer case from the back first towards you, slide forward slightly, and then lift up. The entire case comes off exposing the wash tub and components.

    The drain pump is the most common cause of leaks. It will be located in the front of the washer. Check the drain hoses and clamps as well. If the pump is leaking, it is NOT serviceable and cannot be repaired. It must be replaced.

    Check the wash tub to ensure there are no cracks causing the leak.

    To reinstall the outer case and components, follow these steps:

    1. Re-install washer case. With the lid of the washer open, place grasp case under front rim and place it on the washer frame. While looking down through the washer lid opening, make sure the front lip of the case is placed UNDER the washer frame and rocked back onto the frame to ensure that the small cleats on the frame fit into the slotted grooves on the washer case base. If you do not get the case seated correctly it will rattle and vibrate while the washer is in operation.
    2. Make the back of the washer fits into the washer casing on each side and reinsert the brass clips. Place the clip into the slot on the back of the washer first, and then forcefully push it into the opening on top of the washer. It will snap back into to place.
    3. REINSTALL LID SWITCH CONNECTOR. It is easy to forget. If you do not reconnect it, the washer will not work correctly.
    4. Reinstall operator console.

    This is not a difficult repair, but if you have questions, please let me know.

    Q - My washer will not fill with cold water

    i've found problems with the temp. switch on this washer part number W10184148 and it's around 40 dollars,also on the rinse cycle the washer only uses cold water.what happens when you use just the hot?i had a lady that her water would start to fill and then the water would stop and the pipes in the house would start making a banging sound.if you order the part from http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Switch/W10184148/1468990 repair clinic and if this isn't your problem which i think it is from how you discribe it you can send the part back and get your money back for up to a year.good luck with your washer and next time you buy something and it doesn't work right get right on it

    Whirlpool Washer Model No. LXR-1564039, Serial No. CM-1564039, Type 107, Year 2006. Went using the extra large setting the washer leaks water from the bottom, however went filling for the rinse...


    Although its difficult to say the problem may not be caused by the amount of water but the water temperature.
    Most often rinse tempertaure is cold only, however the wash might be warm /hot. A great place to start would be when the machine is filling in wash watch the connectons from the taps to the machine for any leaks in the hoses or connections.

    Hope it helps.

    Whirlpool LA8800XTWO washer - cold wash cycles will not fill the washer with cold water. Hot/warm wash cycles work fine. What could be the problem?


    Hi.

    You need to replace the inlet valve.

    The valve can be tested reading ohms with a multimeter or swapping hot and cold contacts on dual valve.
