Ogenki desuka?

No hot water. swapped hoses, no suprise--we got hot on cold.

Pulled the little cover off, swapped wires, and put hoses back, no surprise--we got hot on cold again.

 

It seems that all I need to do is pull off the internal hose, pull the four wires off, install new...switch?...and put it all back together. 

FYI, I bought this used in 97. I think it was several years old then. Paid $300 for both, and it was probably the best money I ever spent.

Thoughts?

Just posted an answer on a similar problem on a Kenmore washer, you can read that here.

In your case, I would also check the voltage going to each valve when you have warm water selected. Each valve should get about 120vac.

OK...we've come to a cross roads...we have one hose in very sad shape, and a solenoid or solenoid switch that will need replacing.

Given that we will be buying a new washer in the next six months (I hope), would we be better off just doing laundry in cold water?:)

I'll have to buy an ohmmeter, so through that cost in there too.
