My F&P WA75T65GW1 will not fill to rinse after the wash water has been pumped out. If I manually fill it, it will continue the cycle. Are you able to help? Thank you


when you wash do you set the water temp to warm or hot? it may have a broken cold water valve and may be filling with just hot water when washing instead of both, so when it gets to the rinse it cant fill with cold water, if you set it to just cold water does it fill on the wash?

Hi I have a problem with my Kenmore washing machine,in particular I can not use hot water anymore. When I use my washing machine hot water does not stop at set water filling level (law, medium,high)...


Please post the model number for your washer. It sounds like your hot water valve has failed and is not closing. Unplug your washer's power cord and turn the hot water spigot that comes out of the wall on. If you still get water filling your washing machine, it's definitely the washer's valve and you will need to install a new set (hot and cold valves are both part of the same assembly).

Brand new roper washing machine model # RTW4440VQ2 the cold water is very slow filling hot is fine


This model of washer has something called an Automatic Temperature Control. This means the washer puts water into the tub at specific tempreatures instead of just 100% cold, or 100% hot. Be sure and check that the hot and cold fill hoses are connected to the proper places on the back of the washer. It's possible that the ATC (mentioned above) is causing the washer to fill slowly on the cold setting.

GW52F Fisher and Paykel Washing Machine Col...GW52F Fisher and Paykel Washing Machine Cold water valve does not seem to be letting any water into the washing machine, so it does not spray rinse or deep...


You are better off swapping the valves over in the machine until you can buy a replacement valve. I've done this for a month or so until I replaced the valve. Works as long as you only use a cold wash and your cold water is not too cold as to make the machine want to add some hot. If it does this then simply press start to clear the fault.

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.

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

When temp is set on hot water--hot water shuts off & cold water comes out


In the machine, you have a solenoid that the water hoses come into. That piece is controlled by a timer. The hot water during the cycle, does it shut off completely during fill or intermittent?
