The problem is a bad hot water solenoid on the water inlet valve (also known as a mixing valve). There is a separate solenoid for hot and cold water. If the hot water solenoid fails, you will not have any warm or hot water. Replacement is simple and inexpensive. The following link explains how to access and replace the inlet valve on a Kenmore top loading washer:

HOT and COLD blending


my last two washing machines, totally different brands and types, did the exact same thing. It must be a new way of setting them up, I don't understand either. I can't get straight hot water. My new one does seem hotter than the old one I had which was very distinctly hot then cold then hot then cold even on hot hot water.

I have a Kenmore washer model 110.98762792 and im having a problem with the cold water. When the water temperature switch is set to the cold/cold position the washer does not fill with cold water. W


Since U get warm water that tells you that the cold and hot water solenoids are both operating. Ergo the anomaly has to be with the device that controls temperature.

No water is coming through when HOT water temp is selected. only on COLD. and COLD comes through when WARM is selected.


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

sounds like your temp selector control is defective..
try this
on warm or hot, turn off the cold water valve at the wall.. you should get hot water, if you dont..you may have a defective hot-water inlet valve

My new estate washer with 4 water selections actually only has 2, hot and cold. The warm water setting fills with lukewarm water for a while then shoots in cold water for a while and back and forth. In the...


Yes, this is normal. All newer washer have auto temp control fills. This is to meet energy saving requirements. The less hot water used the more energy saved. Most hot settings on washers give out basically lukewarm water. The detergent made today is made to work well with cooler temperature water, so things will still come out clean.

I DON'T GET WARM WATER, WHEN SET ON WARM, ONLY GET COLD


If the setting is only hot and cold, there will be no
warm water coming out. At warm setting if it is
present, it should give you warm water.

It sounds like you have the hot and cold water lines to the washer reversed.  Try turning off the tap for the hot water then setting the washer to just cold wash and then  hot washif you get nothing on the cold and cold water when set to hot they are probably reversed.  Typically if the auto-temp control is broken you will only get hot or cold coming out on any setting.

Cold water does not fill the washer. Warm and hot intake is ok.


The description of the problem does not make sense.. You have two water lines coming into the washer .. a HOT one and a Cold one.. You cannot get warm water without mixing Hot AND Cold... and yet you say you have warm water.. Are you sure the cold water line is attached to the cold water inlet on the back of the washer and that it has water pressure ? If so... you may have a bad inlet valve.. or the control to that valve may be malfunctioning.. Not sure I can offer any more help unless I have more information about your problem... Hope this helps..

My Atlantis Oversize Capacity Washer is the problem.When I select a Warm/Cold wash the water starts out warm, then kicks into hot water. So then I have to hit the Warm/Cold button over and over as it fill...


The temp is controlled by a thermistor to make sure the warm water is warm. If the incoming cold is too cold, or the incoming hot is not hot enough, it will compensate by turning off the cold until the temp comes up, then it should turn the cold back on. Make sure the hot supply is to the hot water valve. If the hoses are backwards it won't work right either. Or you may have a bad solenoid in the water valve. It's possible for a water valve to work when it's cold, but as electricity runs through it, the solenoid heats up and causes it to open electrically which will close it mechanically and turn the water off. Usually if this is the case it won't open again for at least 10 minutes until the solenoid cools down enough.

No hot water


Make sure your hot water supply valve is on first. If so then try reversing the hot and cold water feed lines and see if you get hot water when asking for cold. The water valve for the hot water side could be bad. Are you familiar with a voltage meter or know someone that can see if you valve coil is getting 120V when the machine is trying to fill with hot water. If not the control unit is faulty. If you do have the 120Vac on the solinoid coil and no water the either the coil is open circuit(bad) or the inlet is plugged. Most generally the problem is in the control knob unit.
