I have a Dishlex 302 which had this fault. Initially I thought it was the inline heater element and replaced it. It seemed to work but later no hot water again. Someone here put me on to the problem. There is a dry joint in the control board in the top of the door. This controls the relay which powers up the heater. Unplug it from the mains (very important) and undo the screws around the top of the door (don't take the door right off!) you will be able to wiggle off the front panel containing the electronics. The control board is ealiy disconnected an removed from the machine in its protective plastic cover. Have a look around the PCB and you will see the dry joint. Resolder with rosin core (electronic) solder, reassemble and you should have hot water.

    Please tell me what the dry joint is and which part of the pcb to be resolder. If you have a picture to show, that will be great. Thanks!

What would happen if we don't connect the hot water... our washing machine is one of those produced around 5 years ago. I mean is hot water necesary?


depends on your personal preference
IN this country you are hard pressed to get a machine that heats the water so hot tap water is an option available but with the cost of energy most people use cold water and cold water detergent
the results are the same with less color runs and clothes shrinkage
I have hot water hose connected but always select cold wash

Frigidaire FEX831CS0 does not seem to be producing warm water with the warm/cold cycle. It does produce hot water. The dryer takes way too long to dry.


Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

I understand that you are having temperature issues within your Frigidaire laundry center. I see that you feel changing the thermal limiter may fix your issue. That could help or it could be a possible issue with your element, water valve, or in home water supply. You may want to check and make sure the dryer vent is not clogged or restricted that could cause long dry times. With the water supply you may be able to run the sink closest to your washer in order to help boost the amount of hot water that becomes accessible inside of your washer. I hope all this information is useful for you. -Matt

Oil furnace only produces cool water intermittedly and only when heat is actively on


For clarity, a Furnace produces HOT AIR for heat while a boiler produces HOT WATER for heat. Just remember...boil = water. You said your "furnace" does not produce hot water for a shower and because furnaces do not product hot water unless they have some model that do???? Usually people with a furnace have a seperate hot water heater. People with boilers though can produce hot water for use as both their sinks/showers hot water and their heat (by heating water that goes through baseboards) in their house. I don't believe any furnaces produce hot water most of the time a furnace just produces hot air for heating. So figure out what you first have.
Having said that, I'll assume you have a boiler like I do and my Weil McClean(sp?) stopped working a while back and wasn't turning on to "boil" any water. I took apart the burner and there is a light sensing photo resistor as part of the controls. If this phto resistor goes bad, the boiler will not start. The resister is cheap, I think it was $8 but you have to know what you're doing to change it. So you may be better to call someone who can work on such equipment.
Boiler's themselves are not overly complex. Home heating oil is the same diesel fuel that you can buy in a gas station only the government has "oil" companies put a RED die in home heating fuel which is usually cheaper then Diesel fuel because diesel fuel is taxed to death. The reason they do that is so that if you try putting RED tinted home heating fuel in your truck and you get pulled over (because you're a trucker with and 18 wheeler and they typically do inspections of these trucks) you will be a huge fine if they see you're running home heating fuel and NOT paying your taxed by purchasing Diesel fuel. A little bit of background so you know the fuel you are dealing with here. So it's dieslel fuel without the tax you run in your boiler. Gasoline on the other hand is VERY explosive as you know, but diesel fuel (if you're ever tried to light it) takes some coaxing to get lit. When it's cold out, diesel fuel is very hard to light and that's why trucks use glow plugs. You don't need those in your home though.
But because diesel fuel/home heating oil is hard to light, it's sprayed as a msit into your boiler, so that it can light more easily.
But because it is a fuel, you should know what you're doing when messing with it. FInd out what you have, and then have someone work on the issue if you haven't already. I'm guessing you have had it fixed by now?
