Question about Washing Machines
Purchased new Roper washer and noticed slow fill on hot. Flow rate 1/3 of cold. New hoses so no blockage. Solenoid resistance same on both hot and cold (796 & 792 ohms). A&E service tech came out and said need to replace valve. With new valve same thing, slow fill on hot. Lowes replaced with new washer and still have slow fill on hot but a little better. Is this the way washing machines are made now? Would have saved a lot of time and trouble if Roper indicates this in owner’s manual. Noticed there is a thermistor in the valve assembly with wires connected to it. What’s up with that?
You can really thank the government for this- your washer has a 75/25 split valve (75 cold 25 hot--- so warm is mostly cold) which they mandated for all standard top load machines. In 2010 they are banning manufacting of all standard top loaders. The thermistor is because your machine has a ATC (automatic temperature control) system. It has a computer which monitors water temp for better laundry care. You could possibly have a repairman (this wouldnt be covered under warrany) try to retrofit a older service valve in your machine.
