This an indication that the hot water solenoid in the water inlet valve has failed. If you replace the valve, I bet your problems go away. The following link provides you with step-by-step instructions on how to replace one:

Washer water temperature is wrong


i would guess that if you actually have hot water at the faucet it is connected to, the the inlet hot water valve is defective in the washer. seems like a lowes exchange to me.

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

The washer is set on cold/cold. The hot water faucet is turned off. The washer should not be asking for hot water because it is set to cold/cold. It asks for and received cold water. At some point...


Newer machines know the water temperature. It will mix hot water even on a cold setting if the incoming water is too cold. Detergents need a temperature of at least 60 to activate.This will only happen in the winter usually.

My new estate washer with 4 water selections actually only has 2, hot and cold. The warm water setting fills with lukewarm water for a while then shoots in cold water for a while and back and forth. In the...


Yes, this is normal. All newer washer have auto temp control fills. This is to meet energy saving requirements. The less hot water used the more energy saved. Most hot settings on washers give out basically lukewarm water. The detergent made today is made to work well with cooler temperature water, so things will still come out clean.

Our washing machine is putting out hot water when the temprature setting is on cold ...and cold water when it is on hot. All rinses are hot. What part could be bad?


The water temperature is incorrect The temperature of the incoming water determines the temperature of the water in your washer. You get either hot, cold, or a mix of the hot and cold water that's currently available to the machine. So if the cold water that enters the machine is very cold--or if the hot water entering the machine is very hot--the warm water is affected. If you live in a Northern climate, unless you adjust the hot and cold water taps that supply water to your washer, the warm water supplied to your washer is usually hotter during the summer months and colder during the winter months.

No warm water coming out of the clotheswasher


Turn the cold water valve about half way closed or maybe more to allow enough hot water to mix with it and make it warm

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.

Maytag washer/hot and cold water


Some whirlpool washers have had A similar problem. They had a intermittent water temperature switch issue. Sometimes they put hot water in when cold was selected. This is probably the same problem as yours. I would replace the water temp switch.

No Cold Water Wash; Only Hot


When doing a hot wash the machine is designed to take both hot and cold water. This is because it can heat the water to your selected temperature but if the water coming in is too hot it needs to cool it down to avoid heat damage to your laundry.
Hope this helps & thanks for using Fixya.

It sounds like you have the hot and cold water lines to the washer reversed.  Try turning off the tap for the hot water then setting the washer to just cold wash and then  hot washif you get nothing on the cold and cold water when set to hot they are probably reversed.  Typically if the auto-temp control is broken you will only get hot or cold coming out on any setting.
