Kenmore HE 3.8 washer has only hot water even with cold settings


If the washer fills very slowly when you have it on a cold setting the cold water may be shut off behind you washer or possibly the hot and cold are switched. if that is not the problem then you have a relay problem with the machines electrical system.

The cold water does not shut off. The machine


Need to replace the inlet valve assembly. Dont know what make or model it is, but the part is relativly cheap, and the job is not that hard. Just getting in the cabinet to replace is the hardest part. With many different models, would need to know what model you have to get you in the cabinet.

HOTPOINT WD62 FILLS WITH WATER WHEN NOT BEING USED


Hi,

All washing machines have a solenoid valve for turning on and shutting off the water coming in, one for the hot water and one for cold. It sounds like one of them has a slow leak.

Try shutting off the cold water supply to the machine for a day and see if the tub fills with water. Next try shutting off the hot water supply and leaving the cold supply on. This will tell you which valve is leaking.

This solenoid valve is something you can buy from an appliance parts company. In some cases, someone handy may even be able to disassemble it and replace a washer that is leaking.

Until it is repaired, you can get by with shutting off the water supply when you are not using the machine or shutting off the supply that is leaking. For example, if it's the hot water supply valve that is leaking, just shut off the hot and do only cold water washing.

When temp is set on hot water--hot water shuts off & cold water comes out


In the machine, you have a solenoid that the water hoses come into. That piece is controlled by a timer. The hot water during the cycle, does it shut off completely during fill or intermittent?
