Common problem with these. Control panel (behind all the buttons on the door) has a thyristor in the middle of the PCB for switching the heater element ON/OFF.
After many screws and a bit of fiddling about, get access to back of PCB (print side) to find dry joints. Clean and re-make joints and all should be well.
Caution, this is a high voltage area. Disconnect from mains.
Please see photos.

check and see if you get water/coolant circulates when you have the cap off (only check from cold start) the original water pump came with a plastic impeller and tends to strip on the shaft also check your thermostat before replacing water pump.

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too, comes after the filter.

SOURCE: whirlpool washing machine...only uses hot water

Make sure the hoses are connected correctly to the water valve on the machine. The connections will be marked with an "H" and a "C".

Given they are correct, most current washing machines have and auto temp feature on the water fill. It allows even cold water settings to bring in some hot water to make sure the water temp is hot enough to efficiently disolve your laundry detergant. The preset temps are usually around 75* for cold, and 105* for warm. Hot water comes in at whatever temp your household water temp is.

I have a front loader LG inverter direct drive

The water temp switch only determines weather THE MACHINE WILL USE cold or hot water. The real culprit sounds like the inlet water valve? change hoses from hot and cold and see if there are any significant changes in temperature. Another culprit may be ur motor control board, on front loads more of an issue.

Getting f20 error code, how to check flow meter operation

Check for stuck socks or something just under the door seal at the bottom of the drum. Check filter for blockage and all outlet pipes. Check the pressure switch hose for any holes as it may have rubbed on the drum and created a small hole in it. Make sure flow meter is level and not at any angle.

Low water pressure on whirlpool front loader** have to unplug to reset the machine to continue washer cycle

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call ;-0(
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

Is the hot water turned on. Remove hose from washer and check screen in water inlet. If it is clear you may need a new water inlet valve.

The code f 20 flashes on my duet front load washer what does this mean

The F20 code for insufficient water going into the machine. Checked the hoses and water valves at the wall to make sure high pressure water is going to the washer.
You can try a different Cycle water temp setting. Like Cold/Cold or Hot/Hot to see which valve is not letting in the water.

There has been some know failures of the cold water inlet valves. That Whirlpool part number 8540751.
I hope this information has been helpful.
Good Luck.

Kenmore front loader washing machine very long wash cycle

You need to replace your cold water, inlet valve.

Unplug the machine from the power source. Disconnect cold water hose. remove the top cover of the machine. You will see the cold inlet valve/solenoide where the hose fits.

Take note of where the wiring goes. You can get the part from your appliance parts outlet.

Refit, and you should be right to go.

Good Luck.

I have tried several times to use cold cycle and the clothes always come out very hot this even happens on the warm cycle. Why wont my machine except cold water?

this can get indepth but first check your hoses and make sure cold is cold and hot is connected to hot. then check the valves by selecting a hot cycle and check water at filling to see if it was cold or hot, if your unit has a heater make sure you dont select sanitize or very hot. then post correct model and heater info. to advise further

Problem with whirlpool front loader

Your water mixing valve is letting water in the machine between cycles. That is the valve that the hot and cold water hoses connect to in the back. Replace that valve to stop the water build up. Run a periodic cleaning cycle with a generous amount of white vinegar to rid the smell. Or you can buy a prduct called Affresh from a hardware store.
