At what temperature setting will my washing machine use hot water?

Last modified : May 24. 2018

Samsung washing machine will use hot water when the temperature setting is set to 60 degrees Celsius or higher. The Automatic Temperature Control feature will allow the unit to use less hot water while still delivering good cleaning performance.

Please check for the following conditions if the water temperature is not as expected:

1 Check the hot and cold water supply taps.
2 Verify the cycle you have selected uses warm or hot water.
3 Check the supply hose for cold water is connected to the blue inlet and the hot water supply connected to the orange inlet.
4 Check your water heater, if hot water is in use in the shower or kitchen area, you may have depleted your hot water supply and will need to wait up to 30 minutes for your heater to replenish.
5 Turn off and disconnect the water supply taps and check the supply hose filter screens, if these are clogged or blocked they may prevent warm or hot water entering the machine.

Please note: Water temperatures above 50 degrees Celsius can result in burns, Samsung does not recommend setting the temperature above this level.
