Whirlpool washer problem

When washing cycle is finished the spun washing is hot. The machine is plumbed to both hot and cold taps but the temperature of damp washiong indicates it is being rinsed in hot water. How do I fix this?

Also is there a way to propgram only a cold water wash and rinse with the AWM 6100

Re: Whirlpool washer problem

If you read the manual it says that the 30 degree wash doesn't actually draw anything from the hot water tap. This is the cycle I use and I don't turn my hot tap on unless I want to clean my machine once every 6 months.

What happens if you just turn off the hot tap?

Machine will wash on hot only will not on cold or will not fill with cold at all

This is an indication that the solenoid on the cold water valve is bad. Or the cold water valve is plugged. If you can get to the valves, use a meter to check the solenoid OR the power to the solenoid. That will tell you if it is bad. If you dont have a meter, switch the wires from one solenoid to the other and see if it fills

Water leaks into my smartdrive 058 machine throught the wash cycle and when the machine is switched off.

you need a new water valve for the unit. The solenoid is getting stuck in the open position (at least partially) and allowing water to continue to come through even after the water valve is no longer energized. This can be caused by normal wear and tear or sediment from your pipes getting stuck in the valve. This is especially true if you have well water or have recently had any plumbing work done in your house like a new hot water heater or something like that installed.

I have a wtw5800swo washer. The washer will complete the wash cycle, but then shuts off and will not enter the rinse cycle.

Be sure to guarantee that BOTH hot and cold taps are turned on. Commonly, the hoses get reversed, and dad turns off the hot water (due to high bills) and the hot is connected to the cold tap, which is used for rinse, so the machine will wait forever for the water...

Error code F20

The F20 error is a no water detected entering machine error and yes it is related to the hot water not being hooked up.

Newer washers sense and control the incoming water temperature. If you select cold wash and cold rinse you may think that it will not ask for hot water so you don't need it hooked up but you can't do that on this washer.

Even on a cold wash the temperature sensor will read the temperature of the incoming water. If your cold water is 60 degrees then the control will sense this and it may cycle the hot water on to bring the temperature up to 70 degrees.

. Set the washing machine on the highest water level, temperature on hot and the wash cycle to normal.
2. Fill a gallon jug with hot tap water. Once the cycle begins, let it run for a minute or two, then stop the cycle, open the lid and slowly add the gallon of hot tap water. Don't overfill — you just want to raise the water level so that it is able to reach and clean the inside top rim.
3. Add 2 to 4 cups of household chlorine bleach and restart the cycle. In a couple of minutes, stop it again and just let it sit for at least 30 minutes. Afterward, let the cycle finish, and open the lid to air out the inside.

When you start a cycle, a small amount of water will run into the washer and it will sit and do nothing then the pause button flashes. But it will not finish a load even if you continue to hit the pause...

The temperature of the incoming water determines the temperature of the water in your washer. You get either hot, cold, or a mix of the hot and cold water that's currently available to the machine. So if the cold water that enters the machine is very cold--or if the hot water entering the machine is very hot--the warm water is affected.

If you live in a Northern climate, unless you adjust the hot and cold water taps that supply water to your washer, the warm water supplied to your washer is usually hotter during the summer months and colder during the winter months.

Whirlpool Duet washing machine - no cold water comes in when I put it on cold cycle

Check the tap is turned on
if not fix
turn off taps, check the lint screen inside the hose end (tap connector end) is not blocked
if not fix
check cable connections on cold water solenoid valve inside rear of case
if not fix
replace cold water solenoid.

cold water solenoid valve fails more often than hot, is used on every cycle so bnurns out first.
unplug washer and turn off water before checking cables or replacing solenoid.

solenoid is cheap, common to many washers local parts guy will have one that fits even if it is labelled ge frigidaire kenmore

Whirlpool LHW0050PQ - Water wont empty or fill

This sounds like a plumbing problem. Lets see if we can isolate it. Turn the valves off behind the washer and remove them from the washer. Remove the washer drain hose from the stand pipe. Stuff one of the hoses into the now vacant drain line and turn the water on. Then do the other hose. Any noise? Now reconnect the fill hoses to the washer and reinstall the drain hose to its' place. Turn on the water valves at the wall, set the washer to a cold/cold cycle and start it up. Listen for noise. Now shut the machine off and set it for a hot/cold cycle and turn it on. Listen for noise. If you get no noise now, it's all good. If you're getting noise from just your hot water, your water heater is set too high and you have steam propagating in your plumbing. Your washer water valves (where the hoses connect to your machine) will only do this if you have low water pressure coming from the wall. Still, it'll be a plumbing problem.
