Question about Roper RAB5232E
Checked the inlet and hoses for dirt, looked good. when i turn it to the warm/cold or hot/cold settings it fills but only with hot water. not sure why cold it turning on and off
This problem is commonly caused by a water inlet valve (also known as a mixing valve) that has a defective cold water solenoid. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, sediment, rust or calcified deposits can accumulate in the inlet valve and cause it not to close properly. Usually when they start leaking, or not functioning at all, you need to replace them. The following link explains how to access and replace the valve:
If the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement valve is 285805. Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:
Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

typically hot is on the left and cold is on the right at the house faucets but in some cases they are reversed so if filling with a cold setting and the right side supply is hot the plumber reversed the lines when the house was built which while its semi rare has been seen numberous times
