    we already did this before asking on this problem by switching hoses

  • bagpiper Oct 21, 2007

    That is exactly what we tried. Also we tried punching the cold if we wanted hot which worked sometimes. You would have to watch went it went into rinse to make sure whether it was running what you wanted. Also the dispenser for the detergaent and softner stopped working quite awhile ago

You've got the hot and cold hoses reversed, switch them.

    Are you claiming that you set the machine for 'hot' and you get cold water, you set the machine for cold, and get hot water... and further, that you've switched the hoses, and you STILL get hot water when you select cold, and cold when you select hot?

I have an Estate 8cycle 2speed washer that won't fill unless the temperature selector is set to Hot/Cold. Any ideas on what I need to check first?


I bet If you switch the water hose around it will fill on cold and not hot. Reason I think so is that hot fills and doesn't use the cold line. So either you got a bad cold valve or a blocked screen. Also Try to run the hoses into a bucket and see if they run well to eliminate the water source.

Never Runs Cold Water LG Model WM0532HW


When set to Cold it Fills Hot ?

What does it rinse with ?

Have you had the fill pipes off the back for some reason and put them back wrong or has a plumber been messing with the supplies

If the machine is told to fill cold it should, it should also use cold water to rinse with.

What hapens if you tell it to fill Hot only

Hot water runs constantly - overfills


This is often, if not all the time, a faulty fill valve, the fill valve has mechanically stuck open and is not fully shutting off when not the washer is not in use. This normally will become worse and could flood over the top of the washer = big mess .... replace the fill valve. The fill valve is the part the hot and cold water hoses are attached to.

No rinsing water coming in


There are 2 versions of this washer dryer, a cold fill only one and a hot and cold fill version.
If it is the cold fill version, it could be the water level switch that is malfunctioning, cutting off before the correct level is reached, or a sticking water inlet valve.
If it is the other version, then the same thing applys, plus the coil on the valve that controls the rinse cycle could be open circuit.
You need a meter to test the valve coils for continuity..
Make sure that there is actually cold water to the valve, if it is a hot and cold fill model.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Possibly rinsing with cold water, washing with hot.
Check inlet valves for leaks, especially cold (rinse)
Lift the top panel by inserting a flat blade approx 4" from each side at the front to release clips, then top will hinge backwards.
You can see the valves at the rear behind the drum..
You can run the machine with top lifted to see any more leaks.
Also remove front panel via 2 small screws to gain better view.

No hot water to wash


Is the hot water hot that is coming to the washer? Are you using the correct settings on the unit? If yes to both then either the solinoid water valve is bad or the timer switch unit is bad. Try going to a totally hot water setting. While turning on the machine feel of the hot water line at the machine and see if you notice a buzz or feel a click as you turn on the machine. On this setting does water run in and is it hot or cold. If water runs and it is cold try going to a total cold setting and see if you get cold or hot water. Is this a new setup or has it been working and stopped? If new, you could have the hoses connected backward. If you get water in both hot and cold settings but cold both ways then your hot water heater is not working....let me know....
