Hot water supply to washer works,but not cold water


Probably the small filter screen in the cold water supply line is plugged up with sediment. The screen will either be directly on where the hose connects to the supply line, or may be on the rear of the washing machine where the cold water supply line connects to the washer, usually a simple screw-on just like a garden hose.

Hi, I have the 1600 NG tankless water heater. Everything works great, but I installed low flow hot faucets throughout the house and now the igniter will not click on. It works for the washing machine. ...


http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Bosch-Tankless-water-heater.html#flow
1) Tankless require minimum flow rate before burner will activate.
2) Sounds like the water pressure drops quickly when faucet turns on. This implies combination of problems including sediment build up inside lines, crossover at single-handled faucet, or sediment filter clogged or water softener clogged.
3) Low flow faucets can reduce needed flow rate.
4) Other problems can contribute: sensor failure, loose wires, PC board failure, high temperature setting, cold incoming water temperature during winter months.

Where do you put the filtration system if you want to eliminate all sediment from your hot water tank. Doe's it go before or after the softener and into the hot water tank?


There are two water lines connected to water heater.
One is marked Hot and the other Cold.
The shut off valve is on the Cold line.

To eliminate sand and dirt from entering your water heater, the 'sediment' filter should be installed on Cold line.
Sand and dirt are sometimes called sediment, but this type of sediment is not the same as calcium carbonate sediment that accumulates inside a tank that receives hard water.

When you have hard water, then water heater makes calcium carbonate 'sediment' deposits that accumulate in bottom of tank. A 'sediment' filter will not prevent this problem.

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-clean-sediment-out-of-electric-water-heater.html

If you have hard water, to prevent calcium carbonate from forming inside tank, you need a water softener.
Water softener will prevent calcium carbonate sediment forming inside tank.
However water softener will shorten life of water heater anode rod.

I can't get the cold water to fill the tub/rinse. the hot works.


Your problem is either a clogged COLD fill valve or a bad water fill valve. Turn the water off. Remove the COLD hose from the WASHER. Check the filter screen inside the valve for sediment. If you find sediment,remove the screen and clean it. Replace the screen and turn the water back on. If you do not find sediment on the screen,replace the water valve.

After washing clothes brown marks appear on the clothes. What causes this?


Depending on how old your washer is and the condition of your water supply, it could be rust stains either from the washer tub starting to rust out. When a washer tub starts to rust out, it usually starts around the hundreds of small holes in the tub, as the coating wears away exposing the steel underneath, which rusts when it comes in contact with the wash water.

The other probable cause could be your water supply. If your water doesn't contain any rust or sediment, (fill a medium clear glass jar from the kitchen sink and let it sit undisturbed for a couple of days and see what settles to the bottom of the jar), it might be that your hot water heater tank is starting to fail and the tank is rusting out.

You can check the hot water tank by attaching a hose to the drain valve and filling a large bucket with some water. You might see some sediment and gunky water coming out of the tank, which could be the cause of the stains you're getting on the clothes.

It is recommended that homeowners with sediment in their water supply, or those on well water, have a whole house water filter to help keep sediment and minerals from getting into their appliances. Also, you should drain your hot water heater at least once a year to get rid of any excessive build-up in the tank. Be sure to turn off the hot water heater (electric or gas) when draning the tank and turn off the incoming cold water line too). Drain enough water out of it until the water runs clear.

Doing this will help extend the life of your water heater and make it run more efficiently too, as less sediment in the bottom of the tank means less effort is needed to heat the water, especially with a gas water heater.

Hope you found this info very helpful and best regards!
