Kenmore Elite HE3 will only wash with hot water, need help!

Our connections are correct and no matter what tempature setting we select it will only use hot water. Any suggestions would be of great help. Thanks

    Our Kenmore 44832 will only wash with hot water, no matter what the setting. It rinses in cold water, as normal. The lines are connected properly and there is ample supply of water in both hot and cold.

I ran a diagnostic test and found out it was a faulty temperature sensor. You can find it when you take the bottom panel off and look at the bottom of the tub. It will be the little black square-headed plastic connector with a wiring harness attached. The part is about $16.

    FYI - The part that I am replacing is #8181705. I will get back to you whether the problem is fixed or not.

    Nope, didn't fix it. Onto the central control unit, I guess. I don't get any error codes...and the Sears repairman had no clue what was wrong. Since I am out of warranty, I will check the board for any corrosion/ connection problems.

No matter what cycle I use the water is way too hot. Can't seem to cool down the water tempature

The hot and cold hoses may be connected incorrectly, giving you hot water rather than cold. If that's not the issue, your mixing valve may be bad and need replacement.

Have the 125. The light comes on on the panel, but water is usually ice cold. Have tried adjusting the thermostat but same results. Open to any suggestions on this matter. Thanks

Any suggestion could include a list of possible problems from bad PC board, burned out element, bad sensor, loose wire, or combination or these.
More information is needed to make a guess.
Test elements for continuity.
Check wires for loose and burned connections.
Open TP valve and test if hot water is available at machine.
If water at TP valve is hot, then problem might be plumbing-related, for example crossover.

Makes a big difference. Cold water valve is is normally marked blue or simply cold water. connected to cold water tap. Hot water marked with red colour or simply hot and connected to hot water tap.(Red hose - Hot water. Blue hose- cold water.).
