Question about Washing Machines
Came back from vacation ... no hot water. No signs that the hot water tank had leaked. What should I do?
Hi, First thing you need to check is that the hot water valve might have turnd off. What you can do if the valve is on, Turn the machine on and set it for hot water only. If you can here a faint hum, then the inlet valve on the machine is probably plugged with sand. Turn the hot water valve off and remove the hoses. Look into the water inlet valve and there you will see a fine mesh screen. This might be plugged. If the screen is plugged, be careful and just scrape the sand out or you can flush it out by using the inlet hose and turn it on with short spurts. You will get a little water on floor but, it is effective.
If there is no hum or there is no plug, the inlet valve is probably bad.
I hope this helps. If so, please rate my answer so that I know how I am doing.
