Question about Whirlpool Duet 3.8 cu. ft. Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Washing machine We have a washing machine that was given to us when the person moved and we installed it but the problem is that when we put it on warm wash/cold rinse or cold wash/cold rinse it rinses with HOT water, I assume it is the control or some one put the wiring to the wrong terminals on the water temp controller. What do you think it may be?

What is the temperture range hot/cold

This machine is energy compliant to an extreme. The installation says to have the water heater set to 120 and when you put the machine on HOT it will be cooler than that because it mixes the hot with some cold. WARM is a little more cold and COOL is mostly cold and some warm, COLD is just plain cold.

EW1200 is rinsing in hot water how do we change that

Hot wash, hot rinse is for 'whites'. Cold wash, cold rinse is for 'colors'. Warm wash, cold or warm rinse is for 'permanent press'. Check your settings to see if you have these options. Double check the hoses, put the machine on cold fill and feel the hoses.
Has someone worked on the machine and possibly put the wires on the solenoids wrong? Easy mistake to make.

I have an Omega CW 675-A washing machine and I have just moved in but the owner did not leave an instruction booklet for the settings. Is this a free service? Can you help me? Paul


The particular model number is not listed in the list of manuals of omega washing machine.Please call the customer support for assistance.However given bellow are some settings of the washing machine,which is extracted from a website.Hope it helps:-

7 is warm wash delicates (warm cycles then it runs through the number 10 delicate cold cycle too)
10 is cold wash delicates
1 is the longest regular cycle
I normally wash with only the cold tap on, 3 for dirty washes, 4 for regular washes.
Soap goes in the middle slot
3 Buttons from left to right
left - in to spray rinse
middle - in to NOT spin dry
right - in for NOT boost heat (or maybe it has no booster and it is just in for cold wash - not sure)
when standing in front of it, reaching over the back, the left connector is cold and the right connector is for hot water.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
Thank you for contacting

Hi, my washing machine isn't working in cold/cold mode but will work in hot/cold and warm/cold. Meaning that water will not come out at all. I even started it in warm/cold and tried to switch it over to...

My bet is that your cold water screen is plugged...

If your washing machine will not fill, only hot or cold will fill or is slow to fill then read these tips. I have covered many of the things that can happen in these tips…

Warm Wash: Force it to be cold?

you will need to put a "Y" in the cold water line and remove the hot water hose otherwise the hot water solenoid will open up and let in hot water,if you have cold water to both solenoids then you can get done what you want to accomplish,wash and rinse in cold water on all cycles

Whirlpool washing machine...only uses hot water

Make sure the hoses are connected correctly to the water valve on the machine. The connections will be marked with an "H" and a "C".

Given they are correct, most current washing machines have and auto temp feature on the water fill. It allows even cold water settings to bring in some hot water to make sure the water temp is hot enough to efficiently disolve your laundry detergant. The preset temps are usually around 75* for cold, and 105* for warm. Hot water comes in at whatever temp your household water temp is.

Can't get anything but warm of hot water

If you set the washer for cold wash with a cold rinse, no hot or warm should enter the machine. If any hot or warm enters machine on cold / cold, check to see if the hot and cold hoses are hooked up correctly, and not reversed.
