Thermistor built into the Water Valve Assembly

Thanks...sorry I didn't reply sooner...my computer crashed and finally got it all back up and running... Unbelieveable on all of the electronics on the valve...hopefully it won't go out as fast the second time... Will read over the info you sent me and see if I can test it...

Any thoughts why it wouldn't be hot? The water supply is on a water softener and when I drain water from the water heater it is clean...so it doesn't appear to have sediment.

Well I finally had some time to try running it in a spin cycle. I first took it apart and dried everything. I then started back putting the boot stem on the tub, then the mounting stem, hand tight then about an 1/8 turn more. Put the allen screw in. Put the basket in, nut and tighten it. Put the agitator on, top seal and ran it through a spin cycle, about 4 minutes. THen I started a cycle, and before it stopped adding water, it started leaking. So I drained the tub. I then took the agitator off to see at what water level it was leaking. It was as before, before it gets to the transmission seal level. So it sounds like it is still leaking at the boot seal and mounting stem. Any ideas? Should I take the boot seal and mounting stem out and clean with anything? I have been real careful not to touch the surfaces with my fingers. Help....

I bet your right...I didn't do a spin cycle...I will do that. Wonder what the spin cycle does to the pieces? My guess is it just seals/levels the pieces against each other. From looking at the pictures it looks like it was seating on three areas. I have to make sure and read and follow all of the last few directions... my bad!

Ok, so I took it back apart and wanted to see where it was leaking.  I put the rubber seal on the tub and filled the tub with water to just below the top of the seal.  No leak.  See picture below.

Then I put the mount stem on hand tight, then tightened it a little more with the spanner wrench.  Put the torx screw in.  I then started adding water and got it into the threaded part, below the transmission shaft seal, and it started leaking.

So it looks like it is leaking where the rubber boot meats the mount stem bottom.

Am I missing something?  How does the two pieces seal, just against each other?  Any ideas?
