Re: Not able to do hot washing

My LG Toploader (wft753a) has a cold and a hot inlet, and the mechanism inside the machine simply turns the flow from each tap on and off. There is no internal heating element in it.

I have an LG TopLoader washing machine. It does not want to wash, it fills with water and drain the water but it does not want to wash. It is a 7.2kg toploader.

I believe you need to replace the Spin Solenoid. Your machine is not switching over to spin/wash.

It is a very cheap part to replace, and can be bought at your nearest Home Appliance Part Store.

Part Number: 5250FA1731L/P

Good Luck

Bleach and Fabric Dispenser not working

Got a Brand new LG ~ WT5001CW toploader today. I did 2 loads of wash. Theres a Bleach Dispenser on the top left side but I didn't use it. In the middle of my 2nd wash I noticed the bleach dispenser was full of water. I thought well maybe after the rinse and the spin it would take the water out. Well when the cycle was complete the Bleach Dispenser was still full of water.
I took the Bleach dispenser out and checked the holes to see if anything was plugged, didn't look like it. Was wondering if anyone knew how to solve this problem or do you think that since I took the bleach dispenser out and put it back it that it might work for my next load ??
Any opinions will be greatly appreciated !! Thanks Much !!

Washing machine doesnt heat the water

Most washing machines do not heat water, they merely let the hot water into the wash tub that comes from your house hot water heater.... when selecting warm, hot and cold water will be mixed together to get warm or when selecting cold.. only the cold water is allowed into the wash tub.. Please provide brand and model number of machine so I can tailor a reply toward your specific washer...

Washing Machine LG WD-1049 C

Growing up in Europe with front loader washing machines I thought I only had to hook the machine up to the cold water tap and it would heat the water up to the required temperature. However, this model needs to be hooked up to both the hot and the cold water tap in order to function properly. Everything is working fine now that I have done that.

No hot water for a Maytag topload washer

Turn the water off and disconnect the hot wat hose from the spigot and the machine. There should be a screen filter in one end. Check to see if the screen is clogged. If it is then replace it. If not then replace the water valve

Bosch WFD 2460 Washig Machine

Hi, It sounds like you have the two water pipes fitting on the wrong connectors on the back of the machine.

IE: The hot water pipe (RED connector) on the cold water inlet on the back of the machine (BLUE connector)

Is should be red to red and blue to blue.

check for the water seal first if it is leaking! if it does, then it might just be the one causing slipping.
