    the hot water from the water heater is not getting through to the machine. With the setting on "hot wash", and the cold water turned off, the hot water does come in. When the cold water is turned on, it "overpowers(?)" the incoming hot water. The point of coming to this site is to avoid calling a service man.

    FYI to all. The water valve was sticking. I removed it, removed the coils from it, let it soak in Zep "clr", re assembled and re installed it, and it worked.

Sounds like a microprocessor problem thats not heating the water and not shutting off the water solenoid. I reckon it's time for a serviceman, always ask for a "Quote" before ever proceeding

Water keeps running in i have got to cut water off to spin dry

There is an electrically controlled water valve for both hot and cold water on the back of the washer, do both settings not shut off? if it is just the cold pull the washer out and replace the cold water solenoid water valve.

GE WCXR1070T5WW washes OK but won't spin and drain

It depends on what type of pump it has.If its an electric pump it could drain without spinning,but if the pump runs off the same motor as the washer then the motor has to be running for it to drain,and it will probably spin.There is no guarantee,but the switch that closes when you shut your washers lid is probably bad.Try bypassing this switch,and see if it spins.Please if it spins replace this switch.It is a safety measure that you should really want to keep intact.
