I have main combi 24 if you run water slow it is hot but if you turn it up it is luke warm water


see pic;

Notice the red in the 1st picture? That is all hot water. When you have a broken dip tube the cold water is 3/4 of the water heater.

So like in your case, if you run water slower you may get hotter water longer, but if you run at faster rate, hot water short time and then cold.

Check & if needed replace the dip tube. Easy fix

Dishwasher takes a very very long time to wash


It could be that it takes a long time for hot water to reach the dishwasher so it fills with cold water. the control may wait for the water to warm up before advancing. Try running the water at the sink until warm before turning on the dishwasher. This may fix the problem. Some models have a water turbidity sensor and will wash until the water is clear. Excessively dirty dishes will cause extended run cycles.

My Frigidaire Gallery Top Load Washer will not run ANY cold water!


I would replace the cold water inlet valve at the rear of the washer (pull the washer away from the wall), it is easy to do and the part is less than $20.00

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.

Cold water trickle hot water runs good


turn off water valves at wall, disconnect the supply hoses from the washer. where the hoses connect to the washer, there is usually a stainless steel screen/strainer inline on both the hot and cold inlet. corrosion on the cold side is pretty common. Menards, Lowes Home Depot stores sell the replacment screeens.

Washer will won't run cold water cycle


Some washing machines allow cold water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.

If you're sure the machine is not working the way it used to--or should--check the following.

  • Is the cold water turned on? If not, turn it on.


  • Is the washer getting hot water but no cold water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct.


  • Is there cold water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you need to replace the valve.

  • Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

    P.S. – I would greatly appreciate a FixYa! rating if the solution I provided fixed or helped you fix your problem.

    Thank you for using FIXYA!

    Plumbing - no cold water from cold water tap


    Hi blondi_1452,

    I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

    Your question is: Why would the cold line water be luke warm?

    In 30 years I've seen this maybe 10 times. It is relatively rare. But each time it was a cross connection between the hot and cold water lines. It could be this fixture is close to the hot water heater or the cross cnnection is in a faucet or it is in the way the water lines are piped. Anyway I would have to closely inspect the system while running the water in the fixtures in different combinations. Once the cross is located the easiest fix at this point is installing a check valve at the right point. You might consider utilizing thr Repair Directory to find a repairman. Make sure he has solved this type of problem before.

    Feel free to contact me again!
