We are having trouble getting hot water in the machine. It may run alittle hot or not even start. when you select the temperature or your water, what part changes the water to (Hot-cold,Warm-cold,Cold-cold). I think that is the part I need. Warm-cold(runs cold) and Cold-cold (runs cold) Hot-cold( does not run)
Answer Larry, This is an older more simple washer, The water temperature switch 206216, applies power to the solenoid on the fill valve when a selection is made. hot will apply power to the hot solenoid, cold will apply power to the cold solenoid, and warm applies power to both solenoids. These switches don't commonly fail(but being older, it's a possibility) It's more likely that you have a weak or faulty hot water solenoid on the fill valve 205613 and will need that and not the switch. If needed, you can remove power to the washer, lower the control panel and test the switch circuits with a meter. The wiring diagram is located inside the console, and you can test the circuits based on the wiring diagram and switch circuitry.
