Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

My whirlpool wtw5600sq will not bring in cold water. I checked connections and they are hooked up correctly. I checked the water source and it is working. My teen daughter overloaded the machine the night before could this have damaged it?

Turns out it is not the machine but a plumbing issue. I can't run my machine while I am watering the yard or I only get hot water. Canceled appointment with repair guy who couldn't make it out for 3 weeks (that seems nuts) and waiting for dh to check to see how to fix this.

RE Whirlpool Mod WTW8200YW0 top load, there is always soap left on clothes in the washer no matter type and amount of detergent my wife uses. Any ideas?


Check the water suppl lines to make sure they are not hooked up backwards the rinse cycle uses cold water if the temperature sensor detects hot water it will stop power to the log valve if hooked up correctly then place unit in a rinse cycle to see if rinse valve is opening

The NF light comes on


The nF error code stands for "No Fill."

If you have just installed your washer and it will not fill, or the display shows nF, check the following:

  • Make sure the door to the unit is tightly closed.
  • Make sure that both the hot and cold water lines are connected (cold to the cold and hot to the hot)
    • Note: If you do not have a hot water source, you can hook up the cold water source to the cold input on the back of the washer and another cold water source to the hot input on the back of the washer (but NEVER a hot water source to the cold water input on the back of the washer).

50. (00110010) Hot Valve Faulty
The Motor Control Module has measured a voltage from the valve diagnostic circuit that
indicates the hot valve is faulty. The most likely cause is that the valve harness has not
been connected correctly or the valve is open circuit. See fault 48 for service procedure.
48. (00110000) Hot and Cold Valve Coil Faulty
The Motor Controller module has measured voltages from the valve diagnostic circuit that
indicate both the hot and cold valves are faulty. The most likely cause is that the valve
harnesses have not been connected correctly or the valve is open circuit.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: Check the valve harnesses are correctly fastened to the valves or the
pins are not bent backwards.
Secondary Source: Water Valves.
Action: Check the valve coils are not faulty (open circuit).
Tertiary Source: Motor Controller module.
Action: Replace the Motor Controller module.

I just rehooked up my washer and I only have cold water going to it. It will go for a while and then reads F-20. What do I do?


he F20 error is a no water detected entering machine error and yes it is related to the hot water not being hooked up.

Newer washers sense and control the incoming water temperature. If you select cold wash and cold rinse you may think that it will not ask for hot water so you don't need it hooked up but you can't do that on this washer.

Even on a cold wash the temperature sensor will read the temperature of the incoming water. If your cold water is 60 degrees then the control will sense this and it may cycle the hot water on to bring the temperature up to 70 degrees.

This temperature monitoring is something all the newer washers do. Both water valves must be hooked up to water.

I have no water going into the machine, there is power all the hoses are on correctly


Hello there:
normally when the water hoses are connected correctly and there is still no water this meanbs that the water supply contrlol valve is not working correctly
The hot and cold water hoses hook up to the controle valve and each of them have a seperate solinoid valve that controles each as needed so this is the first thing that i would check or replace and if this does not take care of the problem than you will have to replace the cycle timer assy ok
I hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

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.

It sounds to me like your water hoses are hooked up reversed. Check to make sure they are correct. you can use a garden hose to run it outside so you don't make a mess, or just use a bucket.

Hooking up the cold and hot water in back of the washing machine


In a word Yes!!

The machine will fill with Hot water to rinse and if that water is as hot as the normal supply your clothes will shrink and the colours will run.

You need the hoses and the supply to the hoses to be correct so that when you put it on a cool wash it fills with cold water and brings the temperature up to the right level.

Bringing in hot water will kill the soap powders action.

Also the machine adds hot and cold water to make sure that it gets a correct balance for other programs

If you are not sure how they are connected then look at the back of the machine, there should be either a H and C stamped into the backplate or the inlets are Red and (White or Blue).

If the hoses coming from the fawcets are the same colour then take one off the machine place the end in a bucket and turn the fawcet on , if it does not get hot then its the cold one so then make sure it goes back onto the C or the White connector

Will not agitate


Check the lid switch to see if you ca hear clicking. If so it could be a bad lid switch or the timer can have a dead spot in it. Try advancing the timer alittle to see if that works. If so replace the timer.
