When the temperature control knob is turn up and down, you can hear a soft clicking sound at the room temperature mark. Yet water will not heat up. What is the chance that the heating element is faulty?

I think there's a good chance it's the heater at fault. if you know how to use a multimeter i would test across the pins and check to see if they go to earth, if they do its ne heater time if not there is a problem elsewhere

hope this helps

Why is heat not blowing out vents?


Either your heater core is clogged with coolant crud, or your blend door is not actuating between cold and hot. If when you turn the heater control knob from cool to warm and you hear a clicking or gear grinding noise, your blend door gear is probably broken. If not, it is just a clogged heater core. Let the engine warm up, then pop the hood and look for two black rubber hoses running from the engine into the firewall. feel both of these hoses. One should be hot and one should be warm. If one is cold or room temperature, the heater core is clogged and will need to be flushed out.

There are several 'types' of electric air heaters. Some have solid-state control boards, others, bi-metalic strip, and open contacts. The most simple is a bi-metalic strip and an adjustment knob for the temperature. Turn knob to lowest setting, plug unit in, turn knob to full, then when room is comfortable, then adjust knob until you hear a click. now system will cycle on - off keeping the room at the temperature you set.

The temperature control does not change when the fan is turned up. if i want to change the temperature from hot to cold, i have to turn down the fan, listen for the switch in the dash and then turn the...


I can tell you about my experience on my 1999 F150. I do not believe it is the blower control switch because mine went out and only affected the fan speed. On my truck, in an incident like yours, I could not get a good response from the temperature switch.

I would turn the control and it would hit a stop on both ends, but the temperature would not change to match the switch. What I found is the stem of the temperature control did not turn because the knob cracked behind the switch. There is a half-moon shaped metal clip inside the plastic temperature knob. The clip can spin when the knob is cracked and nothing moves right.

Because the plastic knob has molded stops under the knob, from the drivers point of view, the knob was turning lock to lock. In reality, the stem was not turning. Try taking the knob off and turning the stem with pliers wrapped in cloth to protect the plastic. Then see if the temperature changes.

Whirlpool washing machine...only uses hot water


Make sure the hoses are connected correctly to the water valve on the machine. The connections will be marked with an "H" and a "C".

Given they are correct, most current washing machines have and auto temp feature on the water fill. It allows even cold water settings to bring in some hot water to make sure the water temp is hot enough to efficiently disolve your laundry detergant. The preset temps are usually around 75* for cold, and 105* for warm. Hot water comes in at whatever temp your household water temp is.

Hot water not going into washing machine


hi there,
try the following, it may help:

Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently
allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual
if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.

If you're sure the machine isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests:

* Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on.


* Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel
settings are correct.

Washing machine doesnt heat the water


Most washing machines do not heat water, they merely let the hot water into the wash tub that comes from your house hot water heater.... when selecting warm, hot and cold water will be mixed together to get warm or when selecting cold.. only the cold water is allowed into the wash tub.. Please provide brand and model number of machine so I can tailor a reply toward your specific washer...

When I pulll the knob on the washing machine, their is no water not running out


Can you hear it "clicking" when you pull the knob (not the knob sound itself, but the water solenoid itself)?

If you can hear it, then make sure the machine has a water supply (hot / cold). You would be surprised at how many people accidentally turn off the water supply and forget about it.

Try changing the wash settings to cold/cold, etc (the opposite of whichever one you're using now) and see if it will fill.

Let me know the results, and I can help you further.
