Why is my Kenmore elite three speed top loader washing maching model number 110.23022101 only washing on HOT water? The cold will not work. We recently had workers remodeling that room and the washing...


Make sure the cold water supply is on and not blocked.
If the machine fills but does not wash try to find a thermal switch that is supposed to come on when the cold water has heated up.

Fault-F13 What does it means?


Hotpoint Washing Machines and Washer Dryers
  • F10 - No cold fill. Check that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked.
  • F11 - No hot fill.The ambient temperature is likely to be below freezing possibly due to the pipes being frozen. Also check that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked.
  • F12 - No mixed fill. It is likely that the water is not turned on at the taps.
  • F13 - Check the water supply, inlet valve and hot and cold hose connections.
  • F14 - A fault with the water heating has occurred. Book a washing machine repair
  • F15 - Water is not being pumped out and a flood condition could occur. Check that the drainage hose is raised to the recommended minimum height and that the pipe is not blocked.
  • F16 - Extremely high water level Disconnect or turn off the water supply and ensure that the water level does not rise any more. Then Book a washing machine repair
  • F17 - Door not closed properly. Close door firmly at the 3 o'clock position.
  • F20/1 - The thermistor resistance has drifted or the temperature scanning sequence is incorrect. The ambient temperature could be below freezing. Book a washing machine repair.
  • F30/31 - A motor drive problem has occurred. Try running the programme again. If the problem persists book a service engineer.
  • F40 - Water below protection level during a heat step. Book a washing machine repair.
  • F41 - Water level detect sequence incorrect. Book a washing machine repair.
  • F50/51 - Customer language and wash programme have not been saved. The system will run with default conditions (1000rpm max and English language). Book a washing machine repair to re-programme your product.
The code f-13 refers to the water valve. Check it for any obstructuions in the screen and if your thinking it is bad you can always swap the hot and cold lines and change the settings to get the temperature you want and that will tell you if one of the valves is not working. Say if you want cold but no cold is coming into the waher, swap the cold and hot lines and call for hot water, if cold comes in then, then you will know that the cold valve is bad. If neither valve is working then replace the assembly

We have no hot water boiler kaput - will washing machine heat water (hot wash) if only cold water is going into inlets.


Yes. The washing machine contains heating element and a thermostat. It will try to get water from both hot and cold sources and will heat the water to the required temp.

Cold water fill does it heat to temputure requied?


Hi,

If your washing machine has inlets for both hot and cold water, you should connect both if possible. If you can only connect cold water, the washing machine will still work and heat to the required temperature, but it will need to heat the water in the machine, so the wash cycles will take longer and it will use more energy.

If connecting a hot and cold fill washing machine with cold water only, you will need to connect a Y-Piece for it to work:


belectric_14.jpg
The tail of the "Y" attaches to the cold water valve on your pipework. You then attach both hot and cold water hoses to the branches of the "Y" and connect both hot and cold water hoses to your washing machine.

Please post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

WILL WASHING MACHINE WORK WITH ONLY A COLD WATER SUPPLY


Yes, any machine should work with just a cold water supply. The internal heating element will bring water up to the required temperature.

Most machines sold today have only cold water fill, as that is better for removing stains - putting hot water onto a stain will set it rather than remove it.

My washing mechine washes with only cold water


They make a Y or T-adapter so you could hook up the hoses (you;d have to pick up one for hot water) and then the other part of the attachment to the washer.

This is not exactly it, but it'll give you an idea of what you need to look for:

Washing machine doesnt heat the water


Most washing machines do not heat water, they merely let the hot water into the wash tub that comes from your house hot water heater.... when selecting warm, hot and cold water will be mixed together to get warm or when selecting cold.. only the cold water is allowed into the wash tub.. Please provide brand and model number of machine so I can tailor a reply toward your specific washer...

Won't heat water anymore - only washes in cold water


u need to take the back half panel off once off u will see the two thermostats and the heater element you can test the element by undoing the wires and getting an old wire with plug on 1 end and bear wires on the other place corrisponding wires to were that wire had come of turn plug on and if it is working it will heat up straight away which means the thermostats need replacing if it doesnt then the element needs replacing
