I bought this washer used without a manuel. I don't know on the wash settings which one is cold water. It only has Heavy Duty, Normal, White, Color etc but it doesn't let you know what the water temp is on any of the settings. I assume white is hot. Which one is cold and which ones are warm? Please let me know. The model is LHW0050PQ It is a whirlpool. Thank you,
Re: I bought this washer used with out a manuel. I
Hello-I came across this several years ago. Some whirlpools have a preprogram where the water temp. is already defaulted to the type of load and color. As you assume the white should be hot or warm. The rest of the selections are probably cold. The manufactures can be driven to apply energy saving features into their products so most cycles are probably cold. If all else fails, when you make a selection let water fill into the tub about 5 minutes and carefully check to see if the water is warmer or colder. You also might be able to pull up owners info on the net if you have the model#.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

i've found problems with the temp. switch on this washer part number W10184148 and it's around 40 dollars,also on the rinse cycle the washer only uses cold water.what happens when you use just the hot?i had a lady that her water would start to fill and then the water would stop and the pipes in the house would start making a banging sound.if you order the part from http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Switch/W10184148/1468990 repair clinic and if this isn't your problem which i think it is from how you discribe it you can send the part back and get your money back for up to a year.good luck with your washer and next time you buy something and it doesn't work right get right on it
G'day, simple solutions is to swop your hoses at the back around, you can do this at the taps...
If you only have one hose going into machine, you need to make sure the hose is on the cold water. Some new machines heat water internally, hence they don't need hot water going in at all.
Sounds like you are putting hot water only into your machine.
If you only have a hot water tap in your laundry for washing machine, this cold be a problem as the machines don't cool down the water. If this is the case you might have to look at other plumbing solutions...
Hope this helps, let us know how u get on
Hi Elllie602 (!) from retired Englishman in SW France,
2 weeks old? Under guarantee/warantee? Get in touch with the vendor/shop!!!
Even if it takes only cold water for the warm wash (which is a bit daft- normally washers mix the hot and cold accordingly) and heats it, that is not how most hot n' cold washers work.
If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!
Washer temperature sensors and water level settings The temperature of your washer's water varies with your laundry care needs. Standard washer models typically feature three temperature settings: Hot/Cold, Warm/Cold, and Cold/Cold—and higher-end models often offer as many as six or seven temperature settings. Temperature plays a key role in the effectiveness of your detergent—pairing the right detergent with the right setting for your fabrics and soil is important, as this will help reduce damage, prevent detergent residue, and provide the best wash across fabric types. For the best fabric care, look for washing machines with automatic temperature control (ATC). A sensor will control water temperature and ensure cold washes are above 60 degrees (F) to dissolve detergents, and warm washes do not exceed 93 degrees (F) to help prevent shrinking and bleeding.
The amount of water you use for each load also affects washer performance. Doing laundry is a bit like a science project. You need to make sure you are using the right volume of water, with the proper amount of detergent based on the dirt level of the laundry being cleaned. Too much of one component can result in a less-than-perfect outcome. Standard washing machines allow you to select water levels for different size loads, but some models offer more water-level options. Washers with automatic water levels use sensors to determine load size and adjust water level for best cleaning and rinsing performance. You will generally find these options in higher-priced top-loading washers. A benefit of front-loading washing machines is that most come with this automatic water-leveling feature.
Whirlpool® AccuWash™ temperature control sensor provides a temperature-controlled wash.
this is an article from the whirpool website, u can get a manual printed or downloaded by going to whirlpool.com and going to owners center and typing in ur model number.......
HE machines can be touchy and you have an interesting question. I'd say if you have it set to cold /cold there is no reason it won't work but with all the sensors and accurate temps I could be wrong. I am going to research this further but I will probably not get back to you till next week I hope you solve the problem and thank you for teaching me in the process! My answer at this point is if you have it set for cold /cold it shoud work. Please let me know if you find out.
the water needed needs to just come up right under the door this is how much water they use cause they use a tumble wash to clean the clothes
low water preasure is a problem but also make sure both water inlets are being used (hot and cold) even if you dont have hot attach a y hose the machine needs both inlets in use
these machines use very low water usage but they still need a fill up point
washer may not be detecting water temp but water flow ..if you never use hot water may try hooking cold water to a Y-connector and then hooking to both hot and cold inlet valves ..however it is also possible washer is detecting inlet temps in which case you're out of luck ..i suspect the latter
