Either the cold water solenoid isn't operating or the hose inlet screen is plugged by lime build up from hard water,remove the cold water hose and inspect this screen for blockage,as for the non- spinning condition, it should give you an error code to help trace this problem

    How do you run a diagnostic to find error code?

  • danny Hendrickson Oct 14, 2010

    the diagnostic code sheet should be under the top cover lid on the left side wall near the top of the machine in an envelope

I pull the knob to do a regular wash and nothing happens, no water no agitation. However, when I turn the knob to rinse it that works. This suddenly happened, was working before. Is it the knob?


Rinse on most washers is cold water your wash cycles can be cold hot and even warm. Problem You may have is a bad water feed valve Or Timer and possible bad wire harness at motor to timer
check water valve Turn washer to regular wash cycle pull knob on will washer fill ?
if water starts to fill then change washer temp if washer has this.
if water comes out on all settings water valve is fine.
Check the water both hot and cold that it is turned on;at faucet.
Your Kenmore Most likely has a bad water valve check for hot water side clog or not working.

Cold Fill Washing Machine Does Not Get Hot


Do y7ou have 2 hoses at the back of the machine one for cold water and one connected to the hot water tap of the house. If not then you have a cold water in only. If you have 2 hoses have you connected the hoses into the machine correctly Have you checked to see if your machine has a heating element under the bowl for heating the water. As an appliance shop to verify if you have by the model number of the machine. otherwise you have a cold washing machine and unless you can plumb hot water to it that is all you will have.

ABSOLUTELY! Purchase a 'Y' adapter from your local hardware store and attach the hot and cold lines on the washer to the 'Y' attached to the cold faucet. You won't be able to wash in warm or hot without changing the hoses, though.

delicate is typically always only cold

Washer does not allow hot water to enter machine when you press the heavy duty button. Regular warm cycle or hot works fine. Replaced the water valves, main control panel.


Hi,

This is a common question we face daily. Certain washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others allow hot and cold to enter intermittently. Consult your owner's manual to be absolutely sure about this. 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.

Bosch WF2001 washes only 30 degrees programmes


We had this problem and it turned out in our case that the hot water inlet filter was blocked. The pump wasn't receiving any hot water into the machine so wouldn't start on anything except a cold (30degree) wash.

We turned off the the hot water tap on the plumbing at the back, disconnected the inlet pipe from the machine, then put the end of the pipe in a bucket and turned the water back on, and saw loads of sediment spurted out.

We ran it until we'd filled the bucket, then turned the tap off, emptied the bucket down the drain, then disconnected the hose from the plumbing and cleaned the hose separately (there's a gauze at the plumbing end of the hose so make sure that's clean).

Then get some pliers and where the hose attatches to the machine there's a filter that you can pull out. Clean this out. In our case this was completely blocked with limescale sediment etc.

Reconnect everything, check it's all tightly fastened etc. then turn the tap on the plumbing back on - turn it on to a hot wash, press start ...and in our case it all worked a dream again.

All this info is in the manual if you've got one, but I thought I'd write it out in case you've got this problem and don't have the manual.

Ahhhhh... cleeean washing again! Hope this works for you. Happy go laundry!

Hot water on cold washes


To solve this problem simply reverse the water hoses from the way that they are set up currently. Then do a test again to make sure that when you select HOT you are getting HOT.

Lg washing machine wft855a top loader


Following up my comment from yesterday, I took the machine apart and discovered that the black rubber cover on the valve that releases the cold water had perished and cracked, and wasn't opening properly.
I tested the hot and cold solenoids and everything checked out ok. Was just the cold valve sticking.
The wash cycle was working because I was using hot/warm water. As the rinse cycle needs cold water to get started, it was not working and the rinse and spin cycles wouldn't complete.
I have swapped the valves over for now (put the working hot one on the cold side and am using cold water only). It's working while I order a replacement...
