Re: washer doesnt take hot water
All the symptoms described are typical of a water inlet valve that has either become clogged with sediment or has a solenoid failure. You can elect to replace the water inlet valve, or attempt to clean. Cleaning requires shutting off the water source and disconnecting the inlet hoses. Check the sediment screens in the water inlet valve and clean with cotton swabs and distilled vinger. Place the hoses in the wash tub and turn on the water supply to make sure the hoses are clog free. Sometimes a good cleaning can help. However, the majority of the cases involve replacing the valve. The following link explains how:

Okay you say only hot water if you unplug does water still come in if so bad inlet valve if it does it on both then the pressure switch is bad or there is a hole in the tube that goes from tub to pressure switch
The usual arrangement is there are 2 electrical water inlet valves, one for Hot and 1 for Cold. These valves are turned on by the timer, and remain on until the water level switch turns them on, and allows the washer to then run. It sounds like this water level switch is bad. This switch should be in the panel above the top of the washer, and has a rubber/plastic tube that goes toward the washer drum. It is also possible that the rubber tube is off or blocked. (if the water inlet valve is stuck open, turning the washer off will NOT stop the water).
I would have thought it was the board too! does it beep when it stops? if it does then it should be putting up a fault code.top row of lights..CHeck that you have both the hot & cold hoses connected & turned on at the taps.even if you are not useing hot water to wash with,turn them both on anyway.Some machines require this regardless of wether you are useing hot.The reason for this is F&P have built into their machines to give a little squirt of hot water to maintain a certain level of cold wash.Make sure also that hot hose is going to hot valve & cold to cold.
Sounds like a faulty water inlet valve solenoid. The solenoids can be tested for continuity using a multimeter or ohm meter. If either solenoid has no continuity, it is defective and the water inlet valve assembly will need to be replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.
You could try reversing the water lines and see when you select hot if cold comes out strong. If it does not then it should be the valve. If it comes out good in reverse, it could be the tempature sensor. Here is the link to parts and diagrams.
you will have to replace the multi valve inside the washer where the lines come in, not too hard if you can use tools and find all the hold own bolts/ screws. the part can be a little pricey so you may want to take it to a repair shop. make sure that you UNPLUG first!
plz dont take this wrong but you say it fills and WONT STOP?? does the unit over flow on the floor?? or you need to let me know because the last part of your question states a diffrent problem..is the hot water valve on?//plz answer my questions and we can go on.
