Cold water isn't coming on, only hot?


Not sure what ur saying have u tried changing the hot cold hoses and see what happens? u may have a bad water inlet valve or a bad water temperature switch? first make sure ur getting hot from the house outlet, u can check with a multi meter for continuity to see if either is out

If this is a spelling error and your not getting HOT water, I suggest you check the wiring or wire plug connection to the 'water inlet valve' assembly. 1st-unplug the AC power. 2nd-turn off both water valves.3rd-prepare for spilled water on the floor.4th-carefully use a wide(app 1 to 2 inch)flat chisel(BIG flat blade screw driver)and pry the top assembly up.5th-it should open like a large tool box. Look down inside the back to see where the valve assembly is mounted. Now option #2 is turn the machine on its side to see if you can reach the valve assembly from the bottom with out having to open the top. Good luck on the job.

Frigidaire gallery front load washer does not use cold water when cold cycle is selected.


Either the cold water valve selenoid is not working or the control panal is bad. try swapping the hot and cold hoses and then call for hot water, if it fill with cold then the cold water valve is probably bad.

I have a Kenmore/Whirlpool Washing machine model 110.26832691 that doesn't allow hot water into the tub. I have put a new timer as well as a new temperature switch. Any answer?


Hello

Please try to swap both the connections, hot to cold and cold to hot, swapping will hopefully work. If swapping wont work then the water inlet valve also known as inlet hose assembly is bad and needs replacement. Please check the water level switch as well although I believe it is the water inlet valve causing this problem.

Only hot water works


Swap the water hoses connected to the water inlet valve and see if you then get cold water or hot water. If you just get cold and no hot then the valve is bad. If you still get just hot then the selector switch is bad.

Whirlpool LA8800XTWO washer - cold wash cycles will not fill the washer with cold water. Hot/warm wash cycles work fine. What could be the problem?


Hi.

You need to replace the inlet valve.

The valve can be tested reading ohms with a multimeter or swapping hot and cold contacts on dual valve.

Washer wont allow cold water


Mixing valve should lock out the hot water when on the cold water setting. Either your hoses are crossed, or the mixing valve is flipped. To see if one of these is true, try it on a hot water setting to see if cold water comes in, or try just swapping the water hoses.

The washer will not call for cold water.


if all water supplies are clear, yes faulty switch. make sure you checked the screen on the water supply, both ends.

Water is not filling up.


turn off water
disconnect fill hose from tap
examine screen inside hose end for 'muck' blockage
clean screen
reconnect hose
test washer
if no fill
replace water solenoid valve

note: cold water valve fails first, it gets most use,
if only using cold water, you can simply swap the hot and cold hoses at the tap, and swap the hot and cold electrical connectors on the solenoid valves, the hot solenoid is no the cold one and the washer can be used, cold only, for about as long as it has operated thus far..
