Question about Washing Machines
All cycles work properly except the Hot cycle which fills just like the warm cycle alternating input of hot and cold water to get a warm wash. I changed the water thermostat and saw no difference. Will this machine fill with only hot water?

check out the hot water tap is on then check out the hot water valve for continuity (poss 27 ohms) then check for blockages in the small inline filter at the valve.

Littleone.. please check your instructions.. some washers now dont need Hot water connection to them...they heat their own as part of the efficiency settings on the wash programmes themselves!

it sounds like your mixture valve is faulty on the cold water side. that is the valve where you screw the hose ends on. it needs to be replaced you can purchase one at your local sears, be sure to take your make and model number with you

It appears your timer/main controller has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

SOURCE: Admiral Capacity Plus Washer -
almost certainly the result of the fill sensor failing. intermittantly
Essentially, the sensor is a bellows device. A pipe is connected to the device and as water reaches the end of the pipe and advances up it, the air pressure in the pipe increases, inflating the bellows. As the bellows inflate, they press on and trip a microswitch inside the sensor and cut the power to the water inlet valve, stopping the water flowing into the machine when it reaches the correct, measured level according to the pressure in the pipe.
Take the top off the machine, if you look down the side you will see a (typically clear plastic) tube about the thickness of a pencil, connected to a circular device about the circumference of a coffee cup and about an inch to two inches thick.
This is the sensor. Problems with it may be:
It has come unclipped from where it should be mounted. The device is VERY sensitive and if it has slipped out of place, over or underfilling is common. (Reposition the sensor, hopefully you can see where it came from!)
The pipe that is connected to it has come off, so the air pressure that the sensor measures is not increasing as the machine fills (push the pile back on and all is well)
The machine has been subject to some trauma (Such as a very uneven load that has made it shake violently. The starting level of the water that is in the bottom of the pipe is now wrong and the pressure sensor is being affected. (Remove the pipe from the sensor, blow down the pile to get any water that should not be there out and then replace the pipe).
