Hello.

It is a good possibility that the solenoid for the cold water has gone bad. Since the Cold and the hot are in the same bracket assembly, you will need to change both at once. A Sears parts department is a good source for a replacement. They will need your machine make, model and perhaps serial number to locate the appropriate replacement shutoff valve. It is always a good idea to take the old part with you since the person at the parts research desk may know less about what yu need than you do. Help them out with the old part as an example if you can. This usually helps to prevent return trips for the same repair part because the new one just won't fit where the original was.

I do not know your level of expertise, so just in case you are not versed in such things, the shutoff valve assembly is the part that the hot and cold hoses attach to on the washing machine.

Before removing, be sure to turn off the water valve feeding the hose. If might even be advisable to turn the machine on to bleed off the pressure in a fill cycle or you will make a mess when you unscrew the hoses.

ALSO: be extremely careful not to let the electrical circuits come onto contact with the water at all!

Safety first! It is hard to enjoy the repair of your washer if you should accidentally electrocute yourself in the process! BE CAREFUL!

I hope this helps.

Jeff, your water inlet valve has failed and should be replaced. Since you already have the machine apart, you can see it mounted to the rear panel on the right hand side.

The part number is 285805 and can be purchased at your local appliance parts retailer for around $25.00, or can be purchased online here.

Need to know what HC means on my washing machine Kenmore Elite Oasis. wash did come thru from the bottom


hi there

HC means that the water hoses have been changed or the hot is in the cold and vice versa. put the hot water to the hot on the machine and the cold to cold and this will stop the HC code.

and on another site

The "HC" indicates that the Hot and Cold water supply lines are reversed. Shut the cold and hot water supply valves off and then remove and reverse the hot and cold water fill hoses on the washer and then see if it continues to display "HC".

what HC means on my washing machine Google Search

Water does not get hot on a hot wash


Shut off the water. Disconnect & check the BOTH water supply hoses at the MACHINE to check for obstructions / kinks / etc: Check for and clean any strainer / filter on the hoses and inlet to the washer. Direct the hoses into a tub or other container and turn water ON. make sure you have water flow from BOTH hoses and that one is HOT and the other is COLD. If OK, reconnect to machine. Turn water back ON. Choose a WARM wash.

If you get COLD only, you probably have a bad HOT solenoid - if HOT only you have a bad COLD solenoid. Be sure by:

Shut water off and swap hose connections (hot to cold & cold to hot) and try again.

If you get COLD only, you probably have a bad COLD solenoid - if HOT only you have a bad HOT solenoid. If you get HOT only, you probably have a bad COLD faucet / hose - if HOT only you have a bad COLD faucet / hose.

Replace the bad solenoid as needed. Good luck!

Silt, sand, something from deep water well has migrated past exterior washer hose screens into washing machine. Older Kenmore HD Series 70 top loading washer. How to fix?


probable but unlikely
the control valve for the water ( hot or cold ) has a diaphragm in the main flow with a small hole in it to act like a pressure regulator
so when the solenoid shuts off the water , water flows through that small hole and locks the diaphragm firmly on the seat
I suggest that the low flow is because that diaphragm has been compromised and is not opening correctly for full water flow
take it apart and clean it out or replace it

My Fisher Paykel GWL 15 will only fill if Hot wash is selected. Should I call a service technician? Thanks Glenn


Try to swap the plugs and hoses to the hot /cold solenoids see if that works the hot valve with cold water if work you need to buy a cold valve.

Cold side of faucet, when turned on, occasionally stops flowing.


Sounds like the valve is comming apart internally. This allows the water to get into places it shouldn't and the water pressure forces the valve closed even though the handle is in the open position. Take it apart and check for loose screws and broken pieces. Lowes or Home Depot should have parts. Don't forget to shut off the valve below the faucet (if the plumber installed one) if not one will have ot shut off incomeing water supply.

HOTPOINT WD62 FILLS WITH WATER WHEN NOT BEING USED


Hi,

All washing machines have a solenoid valve for turning on and shutting off the water coming in, one for the hot water and one for cold. It sounds like one of them has a slow leak.

Try shutting off the cold water supply to the machine for a day and see if the tub fills with water. Next try shutting off the hot water supply and leaving the cold supply on. This will tell you which valve is leaking.

This solenoid valve is something you can buy from an appliance parts company. In some cases, someone handy may even be able to disassemble it and replace a washer that is leaking.

Until it is repaired, you can get by with shutting off the water supply when you are not using the machine or shutting off the supply that is leaking. For example, if it's the hot water supply valve that is leaking, just shut off the hot and do only cold water washing.

When temp is set on hot water--hot water shuts off & cold water comes out


In the machine, you have a solenoid that the water hoses come into. That piece is controlled by a timer. The hot water during the cycle, does it shut off completely during fill or intermittent?
