I live in an apt complex and my washer is only 2 years old. It's been fine up until now, but recently when i put the water setting on cold, hot hot water comes out.

Any ideas?

Try switching the hot and cold valves on the back of the machine and see if it works if it does just the oppiste then it's the water valve in the back where the hoses hooks up.

Kenmore 60 series washer


if your only seeing one water feed into the machine then there is a second one missing. the washer should be connected to a hot and cold feed not just one. youve got to find the second feed (cold) if there is one and connect to it as well.

Maytag Atlantis Washer - no cold water


Check the solenoid valves. If it's connected to hard water, the minerals build up inside and won't let the internal plunger move.

Whirlpool model WTW5310VQO


i've found problems with the temp. switch on this washer part number W10184148 and it's around 40 dollars,also on the rinse cycle the washer only uses cold water.what happens when you use just the hot?i had a lady that her water would start to fill and then the water would stop and the pipes in the house would start making a banging sound.if you order the part from http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Switch/W10184148/1468990 repair clinic and if this isn't your problem which i think it is from how you discribe it you can send the part back and get your money back for up to a year.good luck with your washer and next time you buy something and it doesn't work right get right on it

Washer temp setting changes by itself


I also have a Whirlpool washer/dryer for my condo, although I don't know the model number of mine. I had the same problem -- after it was precisely a year old, suddenly one day the hot and cold started coming out reversed. I was able to fix mine by more or less temporarily fiddling with the water pressure. What I did was one time, when the rinse cycle was running and the washer was filling up with hot water (grrrr...), I completely shut off the valve supplying hot water. So at that point the water stopped filling into the washer, and then I started tinkering with the cold water, twisting the valve off and on a few times. Then BINGO, suddenly the cold water "kicked in" and for the remainder of the rinse cycle, it filled the washer with cold water. I then turned the hot water valve back on, and since then it has been running correctly.

Bath tub water doesn't stay hot


it is because the tub has a temp control valve in it so if you were to put more cold with the hot it will last longer but still won't be all the way hot,, now a days people are suing the manifacture because they are getting burned form the hot water so they put these saftey temp controls in place of the old style 2 or 3 handle faucets,, there fo no more real hot water nothing you can do outside of change to the othere type of faucet 2 or 3 handle tub shower diverter,, that why the water is hot in the sink but not the tub.....

Haier Genesis HLT364XXQ CAN'T GET HOT WATER WASH


hey Paul, you don't have to wash anything in hot water. Hot water only wastes money and does nothing, in my opinion, to get anything cleaner. It does ,however set the stains. To kill any thing the water has to be 212 degrees [ boiling ]I have not used hot water for over 40 years and our clothes are coming out clean. Just set the machine on cold. I put a twoway spigot on my cold tap and put the hot water and cold water together incase someone breaks in and does my laundry. Barry

GE Washer wbsr3140d5ww water problem


Hello Chad
Welcome

Sounds like the cold water knob or switch is not switching and may be faulty.

I have a problem with my washer
For some reason when I try to start the washer and I have it set to cold it does not work if I put it to hot then its fine
The cold water does work though because if I change the washer to a later cycle cold water comes out just fine.
So it almost seems like its the timer knob
any ideas?
Thanks
