Hot water not running to machine just the cold water


Try switching the hot and cold hoses. See if the hot water works. Sometimes the gate gets frozen, other times the hot is so slow it seems to not be working, similar to when it takes a long time to get hot water in the sink.

When water is on mains the hot water doesn't work only the cold working


If you have hot or warm wash selected and you get no hot water, a possible cause is that the solenoid inlet valve on the hot connection has failed. Try connecting the hot tap to the cold inlet on the back of the machine, and selecting cold wash. If you then get hot water coming in you will know it is almost certainly the solenoid inlet valve on the hot connection.

Hot water fills with hot and cold not strictly hot what is the fix


see the causes: and proceed with common sense. God bless you
Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally. 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. Is there hot water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, completely replace it.

No cold water enters tub. Everything gets washed hot no matttter what the setting.


You water line filters may be stopped up. This happened to me once and I unscrewed the two hoses next to the machine and looked. There was a filter that I could remove, made of hard plastic. I took the filters out of each hose and screwed the hoses back on the machine, without the filters. It worked for years. The other thing that I have done is I once had a machine I couldn't get unclogged and the line didn't work for my cold water so I turned off my hot water and I took the hot water hose and put it to the cold water tap. My cold water came into the machine by the hot water hose. I used it for years afterwards. I just had to wash everything in cold water.

Whirlpool washing machine...only uses hot water


Make sure the hoses are connected correctly to the water valve on the machine. The connections will be marked with an "H" and a "C".

Given they are correct, most current washing machines have and auto temp feature on the water fill. It allows even cold water settings to bring in some hot water to make sure the water temp is hot enough to efficiently disolve your laundry detergant. The preset temps are usually around 75* for cold, and 105* for warm. Hot water comes in at whatever temp your household water temp is.

What is the F20 error code?


F-20 error code in Whirlpool Duet Sport washing machine is indication of inadequate water supply. Check both hot and cold water supply lines to make sure machine gets enough water intake. If you do not have a hot water supply to the machine you can only run it with the cold temperature setting. This machine does not have an internal water heater and relies on the hot water supply from the house water heater.

My whirlpool front load washing machine accept hot water and no cold water entering on the machine.


The water fill valve - The water fill valve is a mechanical and electrical part, the coils on the valve need electricity to mechanically open the valve to allow the water to flow into the washer....myth....the washer pumps water into itself...no, it does not. The fill valve opens and the house water pressure pushes the water into the washing machine.
No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water.

If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can test a fill valve live for 120 volts, power to a fill valve coil and no fill = a bad fill valve. You can also test the coils for continuity, no continuity = a bad fill valve. Some Maytag washers have a fuse in the fill valve circuit, if this fuse let go the washer will not fill. Fill valves can also from time to time stick open and not stop filling. If you have to shut off the fill valves to stop the water from filling in the washer, you have a bad fill valve and you will have to replace it.

My Admiral Washing machine only runs the hot water (not cold)


if you want to use cold water, switch your hoses from hot to cold and cold to hot. You will get cold water now

No hot water to wash


Is the hot water hot that is coming to the washer? Are you using the correct settings on the unit? If yes to both then either the solinoid water valve is bad or the timer switch unit is bad. Try going to a totally hot water setting. While turning on the machine feel of the hot water line at the machine and see if you notice a buzz or feel a click as you turn on the machine. On this setting does water run in and is it hot or cold. If water runs and it is cold try going to a total cold setting and see if you get cold or hot water. Is this a new setup or has it been working and stopped? If new, you could have the hoses connected backward. If you get water in both hot and cold settings but cold both ways then your hot water heater is not working....let me know....
