Question about Washing Machines
Without a specific make and model it's tough to give you a specific answer, but here are some general guide lines for hot water trouble. First (and I know this may sound basic, but you'd be surprised) Make sure both your water valves are turned on. Some times the hot and cold get crossed or mislabels and people beat thier heads while they are actually looking at the wrong valve. If both have been turned on, you'll actually have to turn them off for the next step. Disconnect your fill hoses on both ends (the two more narrow hoses between the wall and your machine). On almost all brands of washers where the hoses connect to the back of the machine, there are two small screens. These screens are to help keep out small particulates in the water supply that can actualy cause your valves to jam open. If you have a build up on them, just clean them out with a tooth bursh or similar object. Now some brands of fill hoses also have thier own screens. So check both ends of the hoses to make sure you don't have the same problem with your hoses. Re-install the hoses. Do you have hot water now? The next thing you would have to check is the water valve itself. To do this you would need a volt or multi-meter. You would want to measure across the two wires that go to the hot water side of your fill valve, and make sure you have 120VAC. If you do have enough power there, you will probably have a bad valve. If your don't have enough power, you will likely have a bad water temperature switch. If you're still running into problems, message me back.
