    This is my fathers washer, so i am going by what he has stated. I went to talk to him to clarify everything. The machine gets cold and warm water. He states that he has removed the hoses and there is no problem with the flow to the water mixing valve. He gets no hot water.

    I am going to check the filter on the hot inlet or ask my dad if he did so. I appreciate all the help. The last bit of info that suggested I look at the filter also stated that I may be able to find the part I need locally. I am going to try both.

    I have not had a chance to try to find a part locally before I get one online. Thanks

    How is the flow on the hot water? check the pressure and see how it flows..  Simple things first.

There may be a downstream screen at the back of the washer in each line.
I would check both ends of the hose to ensure they are clear.
Also, the mixing valve on most machines is a piece of **** and are prone to failure.
They are mostly not not hard to replace and you can save some bucks normally by buying it at Johnstone Supply if you have one nearby.

I have a Kenmore washer model 110.98762792 and im having a problem with the cold water. When the water temperature switch is set to the cold/cold position the washer does not fill with cold water. W

Since U get warm water that tells you that the cold and hot water solenoids are both operating. Ergo the anomaly has to be with the device that controls temperature.

Mom has a Kenmore stackable washer. She ran water into the washer and all the water came out on the floor.

This seems like a difficult problem but is an easy fix. Remove the hose from the water level switch and blow out the sediment like this:

Water mixing improperly set on cold and warm or hot water is being dispenced

Did you check to make sure the hoses are connected to the correct temperature spigot? They may have been swapped when the washer was hooked up. Really easy to fix, just unscrew the hoses that go from the faucets and switch!

I dont know what the piece is called but it goes on the back of my front load washer and it seperates the hot water from the cold water and its cracked

Are you referring to the water valve assembly? If so, you can purchase a new assembly. Check with a parts distributor. You will need the brand and model number.

Unplug the washer. Turn off the water supply (hot and cold) to the washer and disconnect the hoses at the washer (there is no need to disconnect the hoses at the wall). Make certain that you replace the hoses correctly on the new water valve with corresponding hot and cold hoses coming from the wall. Disconnect the wire harnesses to each temperature (hot and cold) on the water valve. The harnesses should be color-coded. Replace them correctly on the new valve. Turn the water supply back on and plug in the washer. Run a small water level while testing different temperatures (hot, cold and warm). Check for water leaks and proper temperature.

Water changes temperature

just a suggestion kathy;

the hoses that connect the washer to the hose bibs at the wall usually have screens in them at either end. they connect on both ends the same as a garden hose. if the screen on the cold supply is somewhat clogged, this could be your problem.

The most likely cause for water fill temperature problems is the solenoid has burned out, usually cold first, it gets used more. Not a repairable item , easy to replace
