Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

How can I use cold water only on the quick cycle. The macine will not work if I turn the hot water off. I only want the quick wash as none of my washing needs a hot wash except on the odd occasion. I have a front loader. Model number WFS1071AW

THERE IS NO WAY TO BYPASS THIS. THE MACHINE WANTS TO MAKE COLD WATER THAT EQUALS APPOX. 86 DEGREES. BY MIXING HOT AND COLD.

    This is not completely true. As stated in the Manual, (IFU/Commercial Code is "WFS1071AW"... confusing!) you just need to get a Y-Piece from a hardware store and attach it to both the Hot and Cold on the machine with cold water tap.

Turned on whirlpool duet washer, came back to FH as realized forgot to turn water on. Have tried all the suggestions, but each time I plug the machine it tries to drain water and the motor hums. I cannot...


Make sure both hot and cold water supplies are turned on. Select a cold wash cycle and start the wash cycle, do you get cold water? Now select a hot wash cycle and start the wash cycle, do you get hot water? If you only get cold water replace the hot water fill valve. If you only get hot water replace the cold water fill valve. If you get neither replace both fill valves.

The washing machine won't start if "cold water" only is selected. It will only work when "warm water" or "hot water" is selected (and even then there is only hot water filling the machine, the cold water...


Check the cold water solenoid. If a meter is not available you can swap the hot and cold wires and see if the symptom changes to hot water when cold is selected. If so the mixing valve needs replaced. If no then further testing of the wire harness and timer circuit are needed.

My maytag neptune washer stop washing with 10 minutes left to go.


If your machine is a FAV6800AWW or FAV9800AWW the (upside down u and f) may be a “NF” for no fill error. The washer has tried to fill the machine with water and has sensed a water fill issue. The control board has shut the wash cycle down with an “NF” error to the display because of excess time to complete the water fill portion of the wash cycle.
Will the machine complete the cycle with Hot water only or Cold water only? I would do a Quick Wash cycle just to test with an empty wash basket.
Regardless of the above test and assuming you have good water pressure for both Hot and Cold supplies to the washer I would do the following. Close the water source valves to the washer and remove the Hot and Cold hose connections at the back of the machine and check for clogged inlet screens. If the water inlet screens are free of restrictions I would go into Service Mode and turn on the Hot and Cold water valves on one at a time and make sure the tub will fill with about 2 inches of water in about 3 minutes in service mode. Check both Hot and Cold inlet valves individually see page 16 of the SM Board Output Test, enter service mode and do the function test for both Hot and Cold Water Valve’s. If the inlet screens are clean and you have water fill restrictions in service mode we may need to look at replacing the water inlet valve assembly. You can turn on the drain pump in service mode to empty the tub or just start a wash cycle and the machine will empty the tub.

You could if you wanted a hot wash. You cannot dry without cold water. The dryer cycle requires cold water to draw moisture out of the clothes.

You can create a custom program that has no dry cycle. I usually do the laundry this way and hang dry, however I only have cold water hooked up.

You could get cold from the cold tap by installing a few outdoor hose quick connect parts to the tap if your faucet ends in a screw fitting. You may also need screw on expander for this to work. Go to you local hardware store and tell them you want to get the outdoor hose quick connect parts and an expander to fit on your household tap. Buy metal parts NOT cheapo plastic.

Should the washer be hot after the rinse cycle?


Try cycling a cold/cold wash and see how that comes out.. if it comes out hot then your water inlet valve is letting hot water in when it shouldn't.. conversely, try cycling a hot/hot wash and see that it does indeed come out hot... ( quick tests to verify performance)..hope this helps.

Need to set the washing machine for hot cycle, cold rinse


In owner's manual, go to Machine Information/Care and Cleaning/Cleaning the Inside of Your Ecosmart for a total hot water wash fill:

Press POWER button
Press and hold Favorite button for a few seconds until you hear two quick beeps.
Select Permanent Press cycle.
Select HOT wash. (Yes, you can do this in this mode.)
Press Favorite again to store the selections.

It really works!

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

Does not fill with water. There are 3 wires to the water level control it is getting power to the brown wire but not to the pink wire. The best I can tell it is not actuating the water control solinoids....


Find the wiring diagram, it sounds like you have power to the pressure switch and none coming out. you need to look at the wiring diagram and determine which color wire runs to the water valve.

Now be very careful and check for power out of the pressure switch, with the timer on at the beginning of the wash cycle where the machine would fill with water, if you have power coming from the pressure switch you could have a bad mixing valve.

Is the water turned on for both the Hot and Cold supply?

If you select cold does the machine fill, with cold? also check warm, and Hot. if the macine fills with any water the pressure switch is not you problem. It could be the mixing valve.
