SOURCE: My cold water on my

first thing to do is of course check to make sure the cold water is turned on.  sorry i had to put that in there.  you can take off the cold hose at the washer and check to see if there is a blockage such as calcium deposits which can block the line. if all that is clear then you will probably need to have the inlet valve replaced.

SOURCE: why does cold water mix with the hot when the switch is set on hot

Depending on the age of the unit you may be looking at a faulty switch. Sometimes the contacts for the cold water solonoid on the switch may be fused shut and therefore you will always get cold water no mater what you select. If hot water is what you need the easy way to do this is select hot water and close the tap for the cold water until needed again. Hope this helps

HOT and COLD blending


my last two washing machines, totally different brands and types, did the exact same thing. It must be a new way of setting them up, I don't understand either. I can't get straight hot water. My new one does seem hotter than the old one I had which was very distinctly hot then cold then hot then cold even on hot hot water.

Tip

Save hundreds of dollars each year with this simple water saving tip!


We all read lots of tips when it comes to saving water....but this tip is probably the best kept secret in the water saving arena!! Whenever you are preparing the water for a shower begin by turning the hot water on full and leaving the cold water completely off UNTIL the hot water begins to flow. THEN add the cold into the mix. Other wise, you send hundreds of gallons of cold water down the drain if you begin by letting a mixture of hot and cold run until it finally gets hot. WHY is this the case. Because, the hot water sitting in the hot water pipe cools off over time. The only way to actually get the hot water to the spout is to displace all of the cooled off water out of the hot water pipe until the hot water starts to flow again!

HOT and COLD not blending correctly


The explanation I have in my file is that powder detergent does not dissolve properly in cool and warm wash cycles unless there is some hot water flow. However, I agree with your assessment.

Hot water barely comes out,


If you switched the feed hoses over and the problem reversed itself, cold has gone from fast to slow useing the hot water pipe and hot from slow to fast useing the cold water pipe then this would indicate a fault in the water supply from the hot pipe. What sort of pressure is coming from the hot pipe when not connected to the machine but filling in to a bucket? Are there any shut off valves before the pipe that supplies the hot water? Are they fully turned on? Any kinks in the feed pipe for the hot water? Has the hot water feed pipe collapsed internally? Change the pipe to check this and not just at the machine side.

Water tempeture gets hot then cool


Have you tried turning off the valves to the water heater and making sure you have no water flow out of the hot water tap? When this happens, often it is because of a problem with a shower cartridge allowing the cold water to cross over into the hot water side. It makes the unit think that the flow has reduced and the heater will turn down or shut off. Then things bounce back and forth Hot to Cold then back to Hot.

I have a hot water circulator when i turn on the cold water hot water comes out for about 30 seconds before the cold water will come out. What could be causing this?


This is could be because the system is set up to use the cold water line as the return to the HWH.

Hot water recirculation systems generally consist of a pump, an integrated electronic controller, and a zone valve. When the activation button is pushed, or when another type of control turns the system on, the pump starts recirculating cooled water that's been sitting in the hot water line and sends it back to the water heater through the cold water line.

If you would like..Google "hot water re-circulation theory"...it further explains this senario.

HTH,

No Cold Water Wash; Only Hot


When doing a hot wash the machine is designed to take both hot and cold water. This is because it can heat the water to your selected temperature but if the water coming in is too hot it needs to cool it down to avoid heat damage to your laundry.
Hope this helps & thanks for using Fixya.

My Atlantis Oversize Capacity Washer is the problem.When I select a Warm/Cold wash the water starts out warm, then kicks into hot water. So then I have to hit the Warm/Cold button over and over as it fill...


The temp is controlled by a thermistor to make sure the warm water is warm. If the incoming cold is too cold, or the incoming hot is not hot enough, it will compensate by turning off the cold until the temp comes up, then it should turn the cold back on. Make sure the hot supply is to the hot water valve. If the hoses are backwards it won't work right either. Or you may have a bad solenoid in the water valve. It's possible for a water valve to work when it's cold, but as electricity runs through it, the solenoid heats up and causes it to open electrically which will close it mechanically and turn the water off. Usually if this is the case it won't open again for at least 10 minutes until the solenoid cools down enough.

No Cold Water


Sounds like the fans have stoped turning for the cooling system. If you cannot hear the fans turn on when you flip the COOL switch this is your problem. Pick the fans up at a computer parts store like Frys. Any other part failure on this unit other than a loose wire is not worth repairing.
