Question about Whirlpool Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

My washing machine, the WFE107080, is connected properly and it uses cold water. The machine was moved for an unrelated plumbing service and reconnected thereafter. When it was reconnected it was using hot water rather than cold. Turning off the cold water tap wouldn't make any difference but turning off the hot water tap would bring on the red light that water tap is closed. So, in the past, the machine ran on cold water, now it only runs on hot, or through the hot water pipe. The plumbers have checked and rechecked the connections and the filters and the taps to make sure the water is going through. There is plenty of water coming through particularly the cold taps. The previous owner of the unit bought the washing machine and the settings were set to cold. I've left it like this, but the configuration or something has changed since the plumbers disconnected and reconnected the machine, but all systems are apparently normal. Could you please shed some light on this? Or even send me the pdf manual for WFE 107080? Thank you, kind regards, Ross

I have the exact same problem with my range...was told by a local appliance dealer that it has to do with the digital keypad, not necessarily the range itself.

SOURCE: 60" double oven gas Garland stove

hi garland owners..

I am a gas technician, to answer some of your questions, the pilots on your burners and griddle can be shut off by turning the screws in that are next to the knobs, this will shut off the gas supply to the pilots and you can light them manually with a lighter stick, just light the lighter then turn on the burner. For the oven the most likely problem with it not lighting is the thermocouple, it is relatively easy to replace and any good hardware store should stock one. If you are not comfortable with working on these issues your local propane company should be able to help you.

SOURCE: natural gas orifice burners

Before you get too involved, check to see if the natural gas orifices are still with the range. Usually, when the conversion is done, the person who converts the range puts the original natural gas orifices into the holder which contained the LP ones, then replaces it. Look for an inch and a half long metal strip holding the four brass orifices held on by one screw very near the range gas regulator. (the regulator is the part the gas line connects to on the range) Also, look for the conversion instructions in the original installation and set up instructions, or attached to a sheet of paper on the back of the range. You will need to change the plunger in the regulator (Unscrew the cap, flip the plunger around, and replace) and turn the orifice spud on the bake and broiler burners three full turns counter-clockwise also. (using a 1/2 inch open end wrench, counting twelve 1/4 turns) Orifices will require a 7mm or 9/32 inch nut driver or socket to change. The orifices are different for the simmer, regular, and high output burners. (have a "I", "II" and "III" marked on them to help identify them, respectively.) The left two burners are both "regular output" burners, and use the same orifices.

How to do a cold wash on this machine?


If you intend to always use cold water go to any hardware store and get yourself a "Y" splitter for a standard water faucet. Connect this splitter to the cold water faucet on the water connection and connect both lines from the washing machine to the "Y" side of the splitter. Now you will only get cold water to both sides of you washing machine's supply lines.

Cold Fill Washing Machine Does Not Get Hot


Do y7ou have 2 hoses at the back of the machine one for cold water and one connected to the hot water tap of the house. If not then you have a cold water in only. If you have 2 hoses have you connected the hoses into the machine correctly Have you checked to see if your machine has a heating element under the bowl for heating the water. As an appliance shop to verify if you have by the model number of the machine. otherwise you have a cold washing machine and unless you can plumb hot water to it that is all you will have.

My washing machine takes forever to fill with just cold water. the hot water runs into the machine good, but when i use just cold water it rickles in.


Hello,

The solonoid coil that opens the cold water part of the inlet valve is weak and the water valve could be replaced to fix that trickle of the cold water. The hot and cold both fill trough the same water inlet valve, with two solonoids on it ..one for the hot and one for the cold.

When I do not use my Indeset W90 for a week or more, there is a lot of water in the drum. Do you know what causes this and how I can solve the problem? I have been told by a friend that the filter may need...


U have a valve problem (Hot and Cold value in this machine.) Read handbook. Perhaps it is plumbed incorrectly and, or, is a "Cold Wash Machine, Please Check your manual. Also faulty plumbing as water gathering. when unussed as "leak" . First empty water by rinse cycle to see if this empties water completely. Filters need claeaning on a regular basis. May be at back bottom of drum , again check manual. If no manual go to high street outlet and look at same type of machine and quickly study the manual supplied for that make of washing machine. Recheck plumbing and the valves. Is worth calling a trained plumber for this machine

Automatic washing machine plumbing requirement


The automatic clothes washing machine counts on a pressured water system - like what is provided in a town / city or from a well that has a pressure system to deliver water at pressure like when you open a valve for a bath tub, sink or shower.
You need to have a plumber provide valve/faucets for both hot and cold water. The valves are sometimes called a "hose bibb" with a threaded end that the hoses connect to and then are connected to the back of the washer. When the hoses are connected and the valves are open, the automatic washer will open a solenoid valve when the time is right to allow water to flow in, then closees. Some owners keep the hose bibb valves open forever after they connect the washer, others close the valves after they are done washing all loads for the day/week.
You will also need a drain provided that connects into the house plumbing. The Whirlpool Duet provides the drain hose from the washer which drops into the pipe the plumber provides. It is important that the drain pipe allow air to move past the washers drain hose, to allow proper draining.
Hope that helps. Please post back how things come out, OK?

I've just moved house and my machine is not


Hello Friend, I think your machine will work properly if you add a water line splitter. You would connect to the single cold water tap and on the other end you would have two water hoses . Connect one hose to the cold water inlet of your washer and then connect the other hose to the hot water inlet. You can get these at Home Depot. Happy to help, Tim.

Water in washing machine from emptying sink.


A washing machine filling with water overnight or when not in use has two possible causes. Either the water is running into the washing machine from the sink ( If the drain hose is connected directly to the u-bend under the sink ) or one of the water valves isn't shutting off properly and water is dripping slowly but surely into the washing machine. The latter problem can take several hours before the water level rises high enough inside the washing machine to be visible.
It's easy to track down the cause of water entering the washing machine when not in use. If turning off the hot and cold water taps stops it, then it's one of the water valves not shutting off properly, and needs replacing. It's just a process of elimination to find out which one it is. If not, the water is likely to be coming from the sink (use above link). Sometimes by removing the soap dispenser drawer and carefully observing inside the soap dispenser you can clearly see water dripping in at regular intervals.
Blocked water valve filters: I've come across cases where a filter in the water valve has become caked in a brown sludgy mud-like substance due to disturbances in the plumbing. This could be because of work carried out on internal plumbing or even after workmen have turned the water off in the street to work on the water mains. After the water is turned back on, muddy or gritty water can enter the household pipework and when you use the washing machine it can draw this contaminated water into it.
In this scenario very fine grit or muck can get past the filter and stop it shutting off properly, or the filter is so blocked that water pressure to the valve is reduced enough to prevent the valve shutting off properly. Remove the water valve filter with some pliers and thoroughly clean it out. If the fault persists, replace the valve.
Important things to watch out for are -
  1. Washing machine water valves need a certain amount of water pressure to actually ensure the water is shut off properly. Therefore, if your water pressure is very low, it can seep in past the closed valve. This problem is less likely to suddenly appear unless your water pressure has suddenly dropped. It's more likely to be a problem with a new installation. ( Related: Low water pressure and washing machines )
  2. A faulty tap can mean that although you turn it off, the water supply isn't actually cut, so be careful of assuming if the fault still occurs, that you have definitely discounted the water valves. If unsure, you would have to disconnect the hot and cold fill hoses to ensure the water supply is properly cut when the taps are turned off. This problem is a lot more common with water taps that turn off with a red or blue plastic lever.
  3. If the washing machine has just been filling, you may get some dripping of water into the soap dispenser for a few minutes after. Don't mistake this for a valve not shutting off properly.
  4. If the water ever gets turned off while work is carried out on the water mains in the street or for major plumbing in your home, run lots of water in the house through taps at the sinks until it runs clear after the water is turned back on.
Faulty water valves should be replaced or there is risk of flooding.
