Water Temperatore problem

Wash machine seems possessed. Doesn't matter what water setting you put it on, it comes out hot for days-on-end then will actually run cold if you have cold selected. When choosing hot, it always works, just won't always accept the cold setting and I choose cold nearly always. Thanks for any suggestions.

The cold water is not working in my washing machine


Check the supply hose filter, and the filter on the intake of the solenoid. Switch the wires on the solenoid to see if rinse will put hot water into the machine, the contact at the timer may be going bad. While reversed, see if it puts cold water into the wash, that will test the solenoid.

When going to wash with my GW11 it stops during the was cycle and the cold and hot water light blink and the machine beeps


Hi just read your posting.Now, when the hot and cold lights flash at the same time it means that you are not getting enough or no hot or cold water.Remove the cold and hot inlet hoses from the machine end and put the ends into a bucket.Now turn the taps on to see if you have water coming out the hot and cold hose and if the water pressure is adequate.Try a cold fill on the wash cycle and see how it goes.please reply and let me know if there is water coming out of the hoses at a good pressure and also what water temp do you select on the wash cycle.Looking forward to your reply.

No matter what the temp setting is at it only has very hot water


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.

My clothe come out very wet at the end of the wash cycle


If the pump is clogged and can't release all the water it won't go into final high spin. Remove lower cover and locate coin catch and unscrew it. Water will come out, so be ready. If it's full of stuff, this is probably the problem.

Haier Genesis HLT364XXQ CAN'T GET HOT WATER WASH


hey Paul, you don't have to wash anything in hot water. Hot water only wastes money and does nothing, in my opinion, to get anything cleaner. It does ,however set the stains. To kill any thing the water has to be 212 degrees [ boiling ]I have not used hot water for over 40 years and our clothes are coming out clean. Just set the machine on cold. I put a twoway spigot on my cold tap and put the hot water and cold water together incase someone breaks in and does my laundry. Barry

Asko 12605 overheating the wash water


(even not taking in hot water when filling before the wash stage which seems good)

The washer fills with cold water then heats it up 3 degrees a min. Your problem does sound like a faulty thermostat. Especailly if the glass door does get hot even if it is on 85f.

Only cold water


The solenoid that operates the valve for the hot water has probably failed.. A common fault on all machines.

Swap the wires from the hot inlet to the cold inlet and see if the hot water flows then. To check the cold tap, you will have to set it to hot, and to check the hot you will have to set it to cold (since the wires are around the opposite way) on the control panel.

Check power board also, there is a fuse that allows power to goto the inlet valves, though in your case seems to be OK as you are getting cold water still. Your particular model may have a seperate fuse for each solenoid though.

New inlet valves are available from any white goods repair shop. They come with a solenoid that operates the valve.

If this is still under warranty, then a call to F&P will have it fixed in no time. Make sure to have your serial number and all other info ready when you call.
