I purchased a Bosch 300 series from Sears. My son was home when the technicians installed the washer and dryer. They connected cold water pipe with the hot water hose and the other way around. The mac


Hello Ion;

My name is Peter. I am a retired (excuse the expression) Sears field service appliance technician.

First, The people who installed your appliances are not technicians. Sears contracts delivery people to deliver appliances.
Often, It is not uncommon for me to make service calls the day after an appliance has been installed.

First, shut both the hot and cold water supply valves off. Remove the connection hoses from the valves. Be careful, where I am going with this is, after years of not being operated your shut off valves my be bad and partially block with rubber seating material. So, when you turn off the valves some water will still be in the lines. Your valves could be turned off, faulty and full open.

Now, with the hoses removed, open each water valve. Check for full flow. If you have a blocked cold water valve you will get an error code.

Next, the connections on your washer are marked; 'C' & 'H'. Make sure you have the hot water line to the 'H' and the cold water line to the 'C'. You will get an error code if the lines are reversed.

Hello.. I have a 220v stack washer and dryer unit. I live in hawaii and never use the dryer and electricity here is at a premium. I would like to run just the washer on 110 and disconnect the dryer and run...


Hello Troy, I have checked the schematic which should be located behind the sloping front panel above the washer lid. The washer portion is powered by 110 vac supplied from the dryer's L1 connection (black) and the neutral (white). It should be quite simple to make an adapter with "hardware store" parts like a standard 20 amp plug and an appropriate 220 volt receptical. Please verify that the neutral lead goes to chassis ground and make use of the 110 plug's ground to the receptacal ground (green headed screws) with a seperate lead, for your safety. When the machine is plugged into the adapter, only the washer should function.
As a final note, I see that the dryer motor and timer are also 110 volt but are connected from the other hot lead, L2, to neutral. Only the heater is powered by 220 vac. Therefore if you should connect to L2 by mistake, only the dryer drum would operate. Unfortunately, I do not see a simple way to make both the washer and dryer run on a single 110 feed.

try and change the water temp selector switch.if the hot water is working.make sure to also check the cold water supply and make sure it is not clogged.you may need to replace the water valve.you can also swap the water lines and try to fill the unit if cold water is selected then you will get hot water if you do not then replace the fill valve.

The screen on my coldwater feed keeps rusting up


No, don't poke it through. It will clog elsewhere. Clean the intake screen completely. Buy a $3.00 in hose screened washer. Put it in the hose end connected to your taps. The reason cold clogs and not hot is that the rust settles in the bottom of the hot water tank and doesn't get pushed thru the lines. The cold water is a direct feed. Clean the newly installed screen monthly as your supply taps are way more convenient than the connections to the water inlet vavle at the back of the machine.

No hot water to wash


Is the hot water hot that is coming to the washer? Are you using the correct settings on the unit? If yes to both then either the solinoid water valve is bad or the timer switch unit is bad. Try going to a totally hot water setting. While turning on the machine feel of the hot water line at the machine and see if you notice a buzz or feel a click as you turn on the machine. On this setting does water run in and is it hot or cold. If water runs and it is cold try going to a total cold setting and see if you get cold or hot water. Is this a new setup or has it been working and stopped? If new, you could have the hoses connected backward. If you get water in both hot and cold settings but cold both ways then your hot water heater is not working....let me know....
