    What switch are you refering to? The link associated with the word is not working.

    Manual refers to a Water Temperature Switch. Is that it? If so, where would I find it on the machine?

In the past reports of a bad water temp switch have been reported. I would suggest replacing that switch. Replacing it is easy: lift the tab and twist the switch to release it after removing the knob. To get to the switch you must flip the controls. I have videos HERE

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.

I have a Whirlpool washer GHW9150PW0 and it always washes on hot water, no matter if I set the temperature on cold. I turned off the hot water faucet and still the wash comes out warm. What is the problem?


these washers sense the water temperature that comes in to them and automatically adjust the temperature by turning on the hot and cold valve on make sure both your water valves on the wall are on all the way and water is coming out of each

Whirlpool WTW5300VW2 washer hot water pipes shake during fill


Good day,
The only test on the water valve itself, is to replace it. The term is
"replace with a know good part", but may or may not work.
It is very possible you mght need a plumber to install a riser on the hot water line somewhere betwen the tank and the line going into the washer. The riser creates an air cushion in the line that is used on many issues much as you described.
It could well be best to call a few quality plumbing companies, to see if they have dealt with that issue.

Washer temp setting changes by itself


I also have a Whirlpool washer/dryer for my condo, although I don't know the model number of mine. I had the same problem -- after it was precisely a year old, suddenly one day the hot and cold started coming out reversed. I was able to fix mine by more or less temporarily fiddling with the water pressure. What I did was one time, when the rinse cycle was running and the washer was filling up with hot water (grrrr...), I completely shut off the valve supplying hot water. So at that point the water stopped filling into the washer, and then I started tinkering with the cold water, twisting the valve off and on a few times. Then BINGO, suddenly the cold water "kicked in" and for the remainder of the rinse cycle, it filled the washer with cold water. I then turned the hot water valve back on, and since then it has been running correctly.

What is the acuwash sensor


Washer temperature sensors and water level settings
The temperature of your washer's water varies with your laundry care needs. Standard washer models typically feature three temperature settings: Hot/Cold, Warm/Cold, and Cold/Cold—and higher-end models often offer as many as six or seven temperature settings. Temperature plays a key role in the effectiveness of your detergent—pairing the right detergent with the right setting for your fabrics and soil is important, as this will help reduce damage, prevent detergent residue, and provide the best wash across fabric types. For the best fabric care, look for washing machines with automatic temperature control (ATC). A sensor will control water temperature and ensure cold washes are above 60 degrees (F) to dissolve detergents, and warm washes do not exceed 93 degrees (F) to help prevent shrinking and bleeding.

The amount of water you use for each load also affects washer performance. Doing laundry is a bit like a science project. You need to make sure you are using the right volume of water, with the proper amount of detergent based on the dirt level of the laundry being cleaned. Too much of one component can result in a less-than-perfect outcome. Standard washing machines allow you to select water levels for different size loads, but some models offer more water-level options. Washers with automatic water levels use sensors to determine load size and adjust water level for best cleaning and rinsing performance. You will generally find these options in higher-priced top-loading washers. A benefit of front-loading washing machines is that most come with this automatic water-leveling feature.

Whirlpool® AccuWash™ temperature control sensor provides a temperature-controlled wash.

this is an article from the whirpool website, u can get a manual printed or downloaded by going to whirlpool.com and going to owners center and typing in ur model number.......

Washer wont allow cold water


Mixing valve should lock out the hot water when on the cold water setting. Either your hoses are crossed, or the mixing valve is flipped. To see if one of these is true, try it on a hot water setting to see if cold water comes in, or try just swapping the water hoses.
