Question about Whirlpool LHW0050PQ Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Water Temperature The temperature of the water coming into my washing machine does not seem to be right. It is always hot, no matter what cycle it is on, even if it is only on rinse. Both valves are open, there is no "kink" in the tubes and they are connected correctly to the machine.

Washer water temperature is wrong

i would guess that if you actually have hot water at the faucet it is connected to, the the inlet hot water valve is defective in the washer. seems like a lowes exchange to me.

Hot water seems to not enter tub during washing cycle. all connections are correct and the hot water hose is hot up to the back of the washer, im baffled ? does the unit start with cold water on the first...

They start with hot or warm ,what/ever the setting and rinse with cold water. Check the temperature adjustment and the cycle it's on as some do different things on different cycles.

I have a Whirlpool washer GHW9150PW0 and it always washes on hot water, no matter if I set the temperature on cold. I turned off the hot water faucet and still the wash comes out warm. What is the problem?

these washers sense the water temperature that comes in to them and automatically adjust the temperature by turning on the hot and cold valve on make sure both your water valves on the wall are on all the way and water is coming out of each

Washer only has cold water. Hot water is good to machine but only cold water enters machine on warm cycle, no water ar all on hot cycle.

Hello there
The Water System temperature sensor is normally what is wrong with these units with this condition that you are experiencing
The water system consists of the hot and cold water inlet valves, a water temperature sensor, a water
flowmeter and control and the dispenser distribution system along with a traditional pressure switch.
Water Inlet Valves -
The hot and cold water inlet valves are located at the back of the washer. These valves receive a control
signal from the Central Control Unit to manage the temperature of incoming water. The temperatures
are determined by the specific wash cycle selected and a temperature sensor located in the wash tub.
To improve cleaning of heavily soiled clothing and to provide a sanitizing feature, the water temperature
can be increased through the use of a heating element located in the bottom of the tub

Cold water Washes

It is normal for the machine to cycle between hot and cold water when filling even if selecting a cold cycle. The reason for this is because even a cold cycle requires the water temperature to be 78F for the soap to break up efficiently.

During the cold months the water in your pipes is probably less than 78F so the machine will need to add some hot water to bring it up to this temperature. Basically, it is adding cold and then hot water to maintain a temperature in the tub of 78F for cold water cycles.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

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...

Asko 12605 overheating the wash water

(even not taking in hot water when filling before the wash stage which seems good)

The washer fills with cold water then heats it up 3 degrees a min. Your problem does sound like a faulty thermostat. Especailly if the glass door does get hot even if it is on 85f.
