Our washing machine water temperature does not fill according to seleted temperature. You can hear the water switch back and forth while it is filling. It will wash in hot if you select cold, and it will rinse in hot. How do I know if it is the temp switch or the water valve inlet that is no working?

ANSWER Hello John. Check and make sure the hoses are installed correct on the washer. If so, then it sounds like the water valve 3979346 will need to be replaced because the thermistor is bad. Hope this helps.
