Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
We have a Kenmore elite he3 washer and no matter what the temp. setting is set to it only puts out very hot water. My first thought was the mixing valve is stuck but it seems that if it was the valve it would not put out any water if the setting was on cold. Any ideas???
Your water temp is determined by 2 things. First the hook up to your water supply. If you are able to turn off the hot water valve that feeds the unit and then select a cold water only wash, do you get cold water?? If not then someone hooked up the hoses to 2 hot water feeds. If hot and cold feeds are installed right, the second thing is your computer which monitors the incoming temp through the boards atc control and a thermister. If you select cold, and only get a hum and the cold water valve is on, you may have to clean the screens in the valve of any sediment. If no hum, and no cold, dead solenoid on valve, but that would throw an error code usually. All fills are monitored by the board and usually begin with a hot/wrm mix and then changeover to a monitored cold temp , about 70 degrees.
