7Katz posted a topic in DIY Appliance Repair HelpDear Sensais: I have the above washer. When I set a cold cycle to wash, warm water flows. When I start the cycle with the hot water shut off, cold water comes in for a short time, but the contents are not sufficiently wetted. It's like the machine is looking for a warm wash instead of a cold wash, despite being set for just cold. Then when I shut off the hot water supply to only allow cold water in, an error alarm/indicator activates. Mind you, I'm still on a cold cycle. On a cold rinse, the water (seems to) flow well. Is there another cause for such a condition besides a bad inlet flow valve? Shouldn't a cold rinse not let any hot water whatsoever into the cycle? But it seems to do just that. The plumbing is correct, by the way. If the cold side was stopped up, I should just see a trickle if it's just a bad valve, right? I just want to make sure it''s not something else. I am grateful for any help you can provide. Signed, A grateful grasshopper.
