Question about Kenmore 15864/15862 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Just hooked up machine from our move. It worked properly when loaded on truck. Now, the cold water works in the warm setting but the rinse is all hot, not cold like the machine says it should be. Yes, the hot line goes to the hot valve and the cold line goes to the cold valve. Not sure what to think.

    Thanks but I tried that as well. I guess maybe one of the water inlet selenoids is bad or the wire is lose or something. I'll check that.
    thanks again.

Good day,
It's possible the faucets are backwards. Before you do anything else, just reverse the hoses and try it again. Should solve your problem.

EW1200 is rinsing in hot water how do we change that


Hot wash, hot rinse is for 'whites'. Cold wash, cold rinse is for 'colors'. Warm wash, cold or warm rinse is for 'permanent press'. Check your settings to see if you have these options. Double check the hoses, put the machine on cold fill and feel the hoses.
Has someone worked on the machine and possibly put the wires on the solenoids wrong? Easy mistake to make.

Can neighbor use washer using cold water hook-up only?


Good day,
Yes if cold wash and rinse are used only. If the selector is set to warm accidentally, water would fly out of the hot water port when filling. Be careful, or hook up another cold water supply to the hot inlet.

Whirlpool washer new..,. washes cold wash cold rinse.. hot wash cold rinse.. but on warm wash is cold wash cold rinse I can send wasdher back just got it t0 day or is there something I can do?


Be sure the hot water valve is all the way opened first. Both faucets must have equal pressure for washer to work properly. They all rinse with cold water, this is normal.

Can't get anything but warm of hot water


If you set the washer for cold wash with a cold rinse, no hot or warm should enter the machine. If any hot or warm enters machine on cold / cold, check to see if the hot and cold hoses are hooked up correctly, and not reversed.

No water enters on rinse cycle


I was partially wrong on my diagnosis. No cold water enters on either the wash or the rinse cycles. I also heard odd noises from the inlet valves. I realized the cold water valve was not opening. I've ordered the mixing valve and plan to replace it as soon as it comes in.

Won't complete cycle, stops at rinse. and can't get hot water.


Are you on well water? turn off the cold water to the washer and clean the screen filter out. do not leave filter out.
the machine probably has a cold only final rinse so it won't work properly.

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...
