SOURCE: Shower goes hot and cold

If you are having trouble only at the one fixture (shower), and no where else, the problem is most likely in the shower valve...which either needs new cartridges, or a complete replacement.
hope this helps

SOURCE: Shower problem

This must be a joke because there is no way the shower is connected to your faucet. the faucet on you vanity is connected directly to your hot and cold water supply. And only by opening the hot water side of the faucet can you get any hot water.out of the faucet.

SOURCE: My GS thermostatic valve in my shower is slowly

Chances are that the thermostatic motor or element is failing and probably needs to be replaced. It will be necessary to turn off the water (hot and cold) to the shower valve, remove the handle, maybe the decorative plate (will depend on your model), then remove the valve assembly. If it's a cartridge, you willl need to remove the center clip and pulll the unit out with a pair of pliers. They do make a removal tool, but you may not need it. If the valve is a flange type, you will probably need to remove three to four screws and then genetly pry the valve out of its mounting. With this type of valve, there may be an "O" ring around the assembly that should be replaced so keep that in mind.

Some thermostatic valves can be repaired by replacing their individual components. Again, it will depend on your model.

Take the assembly to your local hardware or home improvement center along with as much information as you can, and have them match up the part(s).

Re-assemble the valve, then turn the water on before you re-install any handles or plates and check for leaks as well as proper operation. You can just slip the handle over the valve stem to test.

Is it possible to modify the water temps that are preset to the types of cycles? Casual is warm/cold and Heavy Duty is hot/cold. I would like to do cold/cold but it won't let me


You could connect cold to both hot and cold washer connections by using a hose wye fitting . If the hot and cold supply faucets both open together you will have to cap the hot faucet. Hope this helps.

I set the water temp setting to cold, but it keeps filling with hot water. No matter where I set the dial, it fills with hot water.


check whether the hoses are mismarked when they come out of the wall.
the same thing kept happening to us (whirlpool cabrio) and i checked the temperature on the hoses coming out of the wall - cold was mislabeled as hot by the builder, and vice versa.

No matter what the temp setting is at it only has very hot water


Your water temp is determined by 2 things. First the hook up to your water supply. If you are able to turn off the hot water valve that feeds the unit and then select a cold water only wash, do you get cold water?? If not then someone hooked up the hoses to 2 hot water feeds. If hot and cold feeds are installed right, the second thing is your computer which monitors the incoming temp through the boards atc control and a thermister. If you select cold, and only get a hum and the cold water valve is on, you may have to clean the screens in the valve of any sediment. If no hum, and no cold, dead solenoid on valve, but that would throw an error code usually. All fills are monitored by the board and usually begin with a hot/wrm mix and then changeover to a monitored cold temp , about 70 degrees.

Kenmore HE 3.8 washer has only hot water even with cold settings


If the washer fills very slowly when you have it on a cold setting the cold water may be shut off behind you washer or possibly the hot and cold are switched. if that is not the problem then you have a relay problem with the machines electrical system.

Moen single handle valve tub/shower


The Moen Posi-Temp Valve is a pressure balanced valve and when not used for long periods of time they can stick causing only cold or hot water to pass through the valve.
A New Posi-temp cartridges can be purchased at most plumbing supply houses or big box outlets such as Lowes or Home Depot.
As long as you had cold water before, a new cartridge will solve the problem. In the future it would be wise to occassionally operate the valve at least a couple of times a month in order to keep the pressure assembly from becoming lodged in position. Just follow the instructions included with the new cartridge on the proper removal of the old cartridge and the installation of the new cartridge. a little silicone grease inside of the valve before installing the new cartridge will also help.
Be sure that there is no particles of the old cartridge left in the valve.

Water intake


sounds like a problem with your selector switch , or you ve hooked up your hoses backwards(pretty common issue).new accutemp water temps will indeed turn hot water on even though yuove sselected cold/cold wash. Energy guidelines state that there is an optimimum "cold" temp and if your water is too cold it will turn on the hot water to stablize a warmer "cold".
