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.

No hot/warm water coming into machine...checked all the obvious hot water heater etc. Somehow it not coming in from water hose/is there some sort of shut off valve on the washer....just getting cold water


There are 2 water solenoids on most washers. 1 for cold, 1 for hot. If the valve for the hot has a bad coil, or the wire connector has fallen off, it will prevent the hot water from flowing. If your live in area with very hard water, the valve may be closed shut from crud scale and such.

Washer was working fine! Moved washer to new house, and now it will run but only with hot water. put washer on Auto controll, and cold cold or warm cold setting, and it wont even turn on.


Have you tried checking your cold water supply faucet? Are you sure there is cold water running out of that faucet before you hooked up the hose? Is it possible there is a shut off on the supply valve that isn't turned on? Therefore it will not run on cold water setting? This actually happened to me once. We went away for a week and turned the water off for the hot and cold supplys. Came back to do laundry and only turned the hot one on and not the cold. Good luck!

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.

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.

COLD WATER


3 suggestions. 1st, make sure all of your valves are open. (some times installers forget to open them back up after the install) 2nd, fill the machine until the water gets hot. Check on the rear of the machine and make sure the hose going to the "COLD" valve is not hot (somtimes these hoses are reversed when they are installed) if those are both ok, then 3rd shut the water off and unscrew the cold side hose. (There is a screen underneath that can get covered with sediment from the house water supply and cause the water not to flow)

Hot/Cold water knob will not work on washing machine


Does the water flow when you have it on warm or cold settings?  If on warm setting and water flow is cold, its probably the mixing valve.  This part isnt that expensive, and not that hard to replace.  Remove the two front console caps, remove the two console hold down screws then flip the console out and then over the top.  You will see two gold cabinet hold down clamps, pop them out, the lift the whole cabinet off the unit.   You will see the mixing valve right where the inlet hoses connect to the machine.  Let me know if you need further help.
