Why does my machine shrink clothes on 40 degree wash

Some tissues are more sensitive to shrinking than others.
Some clothing cannot be machine washed or only at very low temperatures (hand warm).
Especially woolen fabric will shrink even at 40 degrees.
Be carefull with spinning at high RPM's.
Always consult the label in the clothing:

Unless your hoses are reversed the machine control is bad and needs to be replaced. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!

This is a frequent complaint with the following known  solutions:
  • You might be drying them too long. back the time down so that the cool down cycle happens right as the clothes are dried. 
  • Try smaller loads.
  • You should dry heavy fabrics and light fabrics separately.
  • Fabric softener in the washer may help to prevent wrinkles from forming in the dryer.

No cold water, only hot water in tub

Check first the filters on the cold inlet water line (both sides). Then, if problem is still exist - check that the inlet water valve works(it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine)). If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and doesn't work - You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace it for a new one. Good luck
