Washer Fills With The Wrong Water Temperature

Last Update date : 2016.06.01



If your washer's water is cold when it's supposed to be warm, or vice versa, check the following:



• Make sure both faucets from the home's water source are turned on fully.


• Make sure the temperature selection is correct.


• Make sure the hoses are connected to the correct faucets.


• Check their water heater. It should be set to deliver a minimum 120° F (49° C) hot water at the tap.


• Also, check the water heater capacity and recovery rate. If you have a small water heater and are using a lot of hot water (e.g., maybe someone's taking a long, hot shower), the supply of hot water may be depleted and need time to reheat.


• Disconnect the water hoses and clean the inlet filter screens. The hose filter screens may be plugged (see images below).

• As their washer fills, the water temperature may change as the automatic temperature control feature checks incoming water temperature. This is normal.


• While the washer fills, you may notice just hot and/or just cold water going through the dispenser when cold or warm wash temperatures are selected. This is a normal function of the automatic temperature control feature.
