Can't get cold water to work

You may have a defective water inlet valve. This is where the washer inlet hoses connect to . The water ports are controlled by an electrical solenoid, which sometimes fail. If you wish to replace the valve, go to and type in your model number in the "Search by Model Number" window. You can find the part you need as item #1 under the "Dispenser Parts" heading (part #8182862). You can also find it at as item #906483 for slightly less. I hope this information is helpful to you. If you need further advice, please post back and let me know.

PS Try turning off the water and disconnecting the cold water hose & check the sediment screen inside the valve. You may be able to clean the valve screen and avoid replacement altogether.

What does the inlet hose end look like?

Let's make sure we're in the right category. Is this a clothes washing machine or a dishwasher? If a clothes washing machine, there should be a hose inlet for the hot water and another for the cold water. The fittings will be the same, but one should have a C or "Cold" stamped or labeled next to it and the Hot an H or "Hot" next to it. Unless the machine is really old or maybe not from this country, the hose fittings should be standard.

If you're referring to a dishwasher, then there will only be one inlet for a hot water line. The fitting is probably a 3/8" MIP and will require a 3/8" MIP line. There a special dishwasher installation kits that come with the hose and common fittings which might be your best bet.

Water does not get hot on a hot wash

Shut off the water. Disconnect & check the BOTH water supply hoses at the MACHINE to check for obstructions / kinks / etc: Check for and clean any strainer / filter on the hoses and inlet to the washer. Direct the hoses into a tub or other container and turn water ON. make sure you have water flow from BOTH hoses and that one is HOT and the other is COLD. If OK, reconnect to machine. Turn water back ON. Choose a WARM wash.

If you get COLD only, you probably have a bad HOT solenoid - if HOT only you have a bad COLD solenoid. Be sure by:

Shut water off and swap hose connections (hot to cold & cold to hot) and try again.

If you get COLD only, you probably have a bad COLD solenoid - if HOT only you have a bad HOT solenoid. If you get HOT only, you probably have a bad COLD faucet / hose - if HOT only you have a bad COLD faucet / hose.

Replace the bad solenoid as needed. Good luck!

Calypso top load no water for wash but there is water for rinse I have tried all temp still is moving clothes like it is washing just no water,

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(for 'hot and cold' just read 'hot'! Washes are in at least some hot water whereas rinses are normally just with cold)

If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call and a check that it isn't the control PCB ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

Sounds like the water inlet valve is faulty. It the part that attaches to the hot and cold water hoses. It really easy to fix, just disconnect the hoses, pull the washer out and remove the back of the washer to get access to the valve. You can find a replacement by going to your local appliance supply house, or online such as

I have a model WFE1070BD*CD,(5 months old) does this machine use cold water ? Both hot and cold taps were connected at installation but on delicate wash clothes are still very hot .

Check the hose connections on the back.My guess is the lines are crossed. Double check: Is the cold water supply piped to the cold inlet on the washer and the hot water piped to hot inlet? They may be reversed either on the hoses or in the wall.
To check the in-wall piping, feel the the hose bibb marked cold...well, is it? cold I mean. If it is hot, the pipes are crossed in the wall. If it's cold, check that the hose is running to the inlet marked C or cold, or is blue. If it isn't your inlets are crossed. Either way, switch the hoses and you should be good.
