We can only use hot water in our Whirlpool 7.5kg WFE1070BD 1000RPM - how to we shut off the hot water and use cold water? We have tried only cold but the machine will not operate. Please help. Many...


Turn off the water to the machine. Disconnect the cold water hose from the back of the machine and put it in a large bucket. Turn on the water to see if you get full-pressure cold water from the hose. If not, the shut-off valve or other plumbing has a problem.

If you do get cold water from the hose, check the strainer inside the hose fitting on the back of the washer. Clean it if it is clogged. If you still don't get cold water in the machine, you have a problem with either the solenoid valve or the cold water fill contacts in the timer (the timer won't start until the tub is up to the selected level, but if the valve isn't opening or the supply line is otherwise blocked, the machine will never fill). Sometimes in this case you can hear the solenoid valve humming (normally the sound is masked by the running water).

If the problem is a clogged strainer, clean out the hot water strainer also.

I find I get better wash results with warm water (runs both hot and cold for the wash cycle). The soap is more active than in cold water, so I don't need quite so much, and the machine doesn't take as long to finish a cycle since it fills faster. Of course, the cold water has to be running to get the energy savings compared to hot only.

No water on rinse cycle timer stays on rinse all other cycles work


Check for a cold water supply problem, since it's cold water that is used in the rinse cycle. Unplug the machine, shut off the water, and remove the water supply hoses. Check the small metal screens inside the water inlet valve openings. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. Pay particular attention to the cold water side. The solenoids can be tested using an ohmmeter or multimeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

The water is running all the time in my front loader


This is caused by a faulty water level switch. This is a diaphragm like device with a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the tube, and when it reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to turn off the water and signals the timer to begin agitate cycle. Look for any obstructions or damage to the tube. The switch can be tested for continuity using a multimeter. A lack of continuity would indicated a bad switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Cold water runs continuously at end of cycle


If yo9u were to unplug the machine at that point and the water continues to run in you have a bad water valve. If it stops when yoou unplug it, it may be the timer. Would have to test to see if voltage is present at the valve in the second scenario,. Water valve part# is WH13x10024 @ $51.00

Water won't stop running


It might have a small stone or something similar in the water soleniod valve or it might just be sticking open somewhat. I'd go ahead and change the cold water soleniod valve because it's not closing itself and shutting off the water flow.

Cold water continues to run during entire wash cycle


Adrea, sounds like you need a new valve. When it's doing this leaking, unplug the washer. If it's still leaking you know for sure it's the valve. Part number for the model posted is 22002360. Catriver..post back.
