The water enters the washer too hot when on "cold" setting during the wash cycle. I have to put it on "tap cold" in order to avoid ruining more clothes. I have tried to choke down the hot outlet, but the machine struggles for water. Almost as if only hot is going in when it should be mixed with mostly cold. It doesn't seem to do this during the rinse cycle. I was going to replace the flowmeter & heat sensor. Would either one of those help my problem?
If the water temperature of the cold water coming into the unit is below 65 degrees then the unit will switch over to only hot water fill. Once the unit senses the water temperature to be a set temperature then it will cycle the cold water on. If that is not occurring then you will want to test the temp sensor that is located at the front of the tub to ensure that it is good. If the sensor is faulty then replace and if the sensor is good then the ccu would be the issue.
Won't stop filling with water.
Answer Hello Neil. If you can stop the water from entering the machine by turning off the timer or unplugging the unit, you will need to look for a bad pressure hose or replace the pressure switch. If the only way to shut off the water is at the shut off for the water hoses, you will need to replace the water valve in the unit.
