Hi,
The problem is with the water valves.

For a quick fix just shut off the water hot and cold faucets connected to the washer. The problem is you water valve is bad and they can drip or downright just run wide open. A water valve is less than 20 bucks and east to replace. If it is a newer model then the cabinet is removed easily from the washer exposing the innards and it is an easy fix. If it is an older model Kenmore then you need to pop the top to get to the valve. In both cases the water hoses will need to be removed from the valve, unplug the harness and take the 5/16 screws loose and replace it with a new one. This should be an easy fix.
Type in your model number and look for your valve. http://panhandleparts.com/default.aspx

Why does the hot water not come on?


Sounds like your hot water shut off is turned off try opening it up and see what happens While you were working on it did you shut the main hot water line off. A person I know called me over because her hot water would not run and then she remembered that she had turned the main line off. She opened it up and away it worked.

Hot water does not fill in the washer. The spicket has hot water.


There is an obstruction after the shut off to the hot water hose that feeds the washer. Shut off the hot water, disconnect the hot water hose from the washer, and hold the end in the washer tub. Open the hot water shut off. If now water comes out the problem is in the hose. Replace or clear obstruction. Make sure washer at hose end is in place before reconnecting to washer.

If how water flows, inspect the input hose connection to the washer. Some have a screen filter that my be clogged with sediment or other debris. Clean and try again.

If still no hot water, there is likely a problem with the hot water solenoid valve inside the washer itself. You'll have to remove and probably replace the valve or coil (or assembly).

Shut off water to house and drain water


Depending on where you live you may need to call your utilities company to come out and turn off your water. Before the water is shut off be sure to turn off your hot water heater. When the water is shut off you can drain your system by turning on an outdoor faucet which is normally the lowest fixture in the house. You will also need to turn on the hot water valve at any fixutre to drain the hot water out o the lines. Water will still remain in the hot water heater.

Check the aerator to see if its full of sediment.  Also check the shut off valve to see if the hot water supply line is opened all the way.

HOTPOINT WD62 FILLS WITH WATER WHEN NOT BEING USED


Hi,

All washing machines have a solenoid valve for turning on and shutting off the water coming in, one for the hot water and one for cold. It sounds like one of them has a slow leak.

Try shutting off the cold water supply to the machine for a day and see if the tub fills with water. Next try shutting off the hot water supply and leaving the cold supply on. This will tell you which valve is leaking.

This solenoid valve is something you can buy from an appliance parts company. In some cases, someone handy may even be able to disassemble it and replace a washer that is leaking.

Until it is repaired, you can get by with shutting off the water supply when you are not using the machine or shutting off the supply that is leaking. For example, if it's the hot water supply valve that is leaking, just shut off the hot and do only cold water washing.

When temp is set on hot water--hot water shuts off & cold water comes out


In the machine, you have a solenoid that the water hoses come into. That piece is controlled by a timer. The hot water during the cycle, does it shut off completely during fill or intermittent?
