pull the hot water hose off at the faucet and machine and check for blockage in the hot water hose,clean or replace the hose sediment screens,then hook back up to water faucet and flush hose with hot water,then check water valve on machine for a screen and clean it as well before reconnecting hot water hose
on the older washers you can run it on just cold water but i looked up your machine and it has an electronic water temp. control board in it so most likely you do need both the hot and cold water hooked up,the part number for the board is 3407125 and it's around 50 dollars at sears,but if all you have to do is hook up the hot water line do it and see what happens,most likely it should work.what problem are you having?
There are generally only a couple of reasons for this. First is that the small screens in the end of the water hoses are clogged or blocked with lime or calcium deposits. You can turn off the water and remove each hose and inspect the screens in the hoses, clean them or replace them. You will also need to inspect the inlet screens on the water fill valve on the washer where the hoses connect. If you have clean hose screens then the problem may be in the fill valve itself. You can test this by changing the water temp and starting the washer, if you start on cold and don't get any water more the water temp selector to the warm of hot position. You should get one or the other. If you only get cold or hot but not warm then you will need to replace the fill valve.
Your water temp is determined by 2 things. First the hook up to your water supply. If you are able to turn off the hot water valve that feeds the unit and then select a cold water only wash, do you get cold water?? If not then someone hooked up the hoses to 2 hot water feeds. If hot and cold feeds are installed right, the second thing is your computer which monitors the incoming temp through the boards atc control and a thermister. If you select cold, and only get a hum and the cold water valve is on, you may have to clean the screens in the valve of any sediment. If no hum, and no cold, dead solenoid on valve, but that would throw an error code usually. All fills are monitored by the board and usually begin with a hot/wrm mix and then changeover to a monitored cold temp , about 70 degrees.
This can be caused be several things. 1 the pressure switch sensing line can have water in ti causing a hydraulic air lock that clears over time one the unit sit for a while but repeats the same discrepancy once the unit fills with the next load of clothes. Also check to make sure you have either cold or warm selected on the rinse temp selector. A partially depressed selection can cause an incomplete circuit. Also check in the wash cycle that the cold and HOT water tems work. If one of them does not work you either have a bad water valve solenoid or a clogged inlet screen in one of them You can clean the inlet screens yourself by turning off the water, removing the hoses and then the inlet screens. Wash the inlet screens under slowly running water. If you have to use a brush to clean them. An old tooth brush works great. Then hold them up to the light. If they are properly cleand you should be able to see light through them. Reinstall the screens. You may have to push them in form the outside diameter of the inlet screen to get them to seat correctly. Reinstall the hoses and turn on the water. Then test for water in both the wash and the rinse. If you still have the porblem after all of this then you may just have a bad contact in the timer assy. Good luck and if you need more information or help repost here.
lets see hear.what the water fill hoses are connected to is call the water fill valve.when you select a water temp.,electricty will then go to ither water valve coil or both for warm.so if your not getting hot it could be first that the fill screens at the hose at the water valve is blocked .but most of the time thats not true of hot because minerals drop out in the water heater before getting to the water valve,unlike the cold water.so if screen is clean,next would be voltage to the water valve.if its getting voltage but not working then its the water valve.if its not getting voltage then use the wiring diagram to see what componet is before the water valve.may be water selector switch or timer
First thing to do is to check the filter screens in the hoses if they have them second check the screen at the machine hot inlet. If your home has galvanized piping flakes of rust could have clogged the screens. Same goes for the hot side washer bib (faucet) if rust has clogged or any other type of debris you will not get any water.
sounds like it was hooked up to a coldwater line instead of a hot and your heating element in the dishwasher went bad from overload or your pc board went bad but i would check to see if it is hooked up to hot water line first..
If the washer doesn't fill properly, or if only one temperature of water fills the tub, something is probably keeping water from entering the machine or it's draining before the tub fills completely.
Set the controls to the first wash cycle, and then try each water temperature setting.
If both hot and cold water seem to be entering the washer with good pressure, water may be draining out prematurely during the fill cycle, through siphoning action. Be sure the drain hose's connection to the standpipe is at least 34 inches above the floor (otherwise, discuss the problem with a plumber). An air gap between drain hose and stand pipe that prevents backflow is also good to have.
If hot works but cold doesn't, or vice versa:
1) Be sure both the hot and cold water faucets are turned on.
2) Be sure the supply hoses are not kinked.
3) Turn off the faucets. Unscrew the hoses from the faucets and drain them into a bucket. Hold the bucket under the faucets and test them to make sure they both work and have plenty of pressure (see HERE for information on replacing faucets). Screw the hoses back onto the faucets.
4) Unscrew the hoses from the inlet valves and clean the filter screens just inside them; these may be clogged. To do this, pry out the screens with a screwdriver (this can be difficult; the screens may be inside the valves), flush them under running water, then put them back into the hose. If the screens look defective, replace them. Then screw the hoses back onto the valves. Be careful not to cross-thread the hose threads when screwing them back onto the valves.
5) Call an appliance repairperson; there may be a defective inlet valve or a problem with the controls.
