The hot water is not coming out jut the cool one. How I can now that the problem is the water valve?
Answer Hello Francisco! Make sure that the hot water inlet hose is not clogged and the inlet screen is not clogged. If all is ok, you will need the valve 22002708. Thanks!

Hello. This washer leaks cold water into the drum when not in use, about three inches overnight. It stops when the cold water hose is turned off. Sounds like the valve to me. The machine is about 14 years old and otherwise runs great, and has a matching dryer that we like. Hopefully I can just replace a simple part.
Answer Doug, You're correct, the fill valve is the likeliest issue. The hardest part will be determining which fill valve you need. If the serial number starts with 17 or less you'll need the 22002708 fill valve. If the serial number starts with 18 or higher, you'll need to order the 12002158. Just make sure you remove power to the washer and turn off the faucets before you start.
When you select cold/cold on any cycle the water comes out warm so I changed the water valve. The same thing. Then I changed the temperature switch. Same thing! Any ideas? Thanks!
Answer Hello Dennis,
The design of the modern washing machine does not allow a cold only fill. The reason for this is because of the detergent. You see, the actual cleaning of the clothes is accomplished by a temperature activated chemical reaction. From 60°F to 70°F, you get a light chemical reaction. From 70°F to 80°F you get a stronger chemical reaction. Anything above 80°F is considered a hot wash because you will get no better wash result from 120°F than you do at 81°F. Now, in the other direction, you have the opposite situation. According to the engineers, if the water temperature is below 60°F, you get absolutely no chemical reaction from the detergent. It is for this reason that the engineers decided to build in the capability of the machine to force the chemical reaction to prevent poor wash results.
So, this is why you get warm water when it's set to cold. It's automatic. Now to throw a bit more in the mix, most machines manufactured today have to have a hot water line to it and turned on. These units have a temperature sensor on them and will give a fault code if they don't sense hot water from the hot valve.
The control temperature light is on and water flows but does not start?
Answer Hi Joesph. If your serial # starts with pre 18../ and after,then use the water valve part # 12002158. If it starts with serial prior 18.... #, then use water valve part # 22002708. Tech. Advise says if this does not correct issue, then install machine board (electronic timer) part # 22003906. Thank You.
When you select cold wash and cold rinse, the water is warm. I replaced the water valve and still have the problem. What should I do next? Thanks!
Answer Hi Robert. Your temperature switch on the control board may be an issue if you have already changed the water valve. This part # is 22002936. The water valve has a thermister included with it that senses the temperature incoming to help mix. Hope this helps. Thank you.
