Wash cycle water is not hot for Speed Queen AWS53NW
When the washer is filling up with hot water, the water actually ends up being cold or lukewarm, not hot. Hot water does come in to the washer but then the cold water kicks in. Is there any way to get only hot water to fill the tub?

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.
No speed there, then ;-0)
Sorry, I do not know whether your machine is cold fill only or hot and cold.
If it's both is it just on the wash cycle- when hot water is being fed in or on rinses when cold water is fed in? If it's on both wash and rinse I would have to assume that it is cold fill only.
I would first check that the water supplied to the washer is OK. Turn the tap(s) off and take the hose(s) off. Have a bucket handy (or sink if it is close enough) and turn each tap on in turn to make sure the water flow IS plentiful. If it is, and whilst the hoses are disconnected, check the little filters just inside the washer inlets in case one or other is blocked up.
If all the previous are OK the next suspect is the inlet water control valve (singular- depending again on whether it is just cold fill only) which is malfunctioning and will require a service engineer's visit, sorry ;-0(
Yes, this is normal. All newer washer have auto temp control fills. This is to meet energy saving requirements. The less hot water used the more energy saved. Most hot settings on washers give out basically lukewarm water. The detergent made today is made to work well with cooler temperature water, so things will still come out clean.
All top suspend tub washers drop down when they fill with water. And they rise again when they have pumped the water out. This is normal. What is not normal is water not coming in.'
check following: Water is turned on Remove inlet hose and run water to see if it is blocked. Clean the inlet filters. If you hear a buzz but no water goes in the inlet valve needs replacing. If yu use only cold water try swapping the cold hose onto the Hot inlet. Then select Warm Wash. Then only turn on the Cold Tap. This will allow you to fill the machine and do a wash. Watch out though when it comes to the Rinse position......some machines only do a cold rinse, and because you have swapped the hose over to hot it will not fill to rinse the clothes. Until you can get a Tech to do the repair you can just use either a bucket to add cold water for the rinse or use the garden hose to fill the tub with cold water for the rinse. Have yu got all that?
it sounds like your mixture valve is faulty on the cold water side. that is the valve where you screw the hose ends on. it needs to be replaced you can purchase one at your local sears, be sure to take your make and model number with you
