S.E.Thomas :

if you have replaced the valve then it is most likely the control board. if you have access to a volt meter you can check this by testing for power at the valve while setting washer to fill on hot. if you do not have the power at the valve then you need the control board.

The cold works

JACUSTOMER-eokj3fob- :

I will try that in the morning

JACUSTOMER-eokj3fob- :

Could it be a broken wire?

S.E.Thomas :

if you are sure that the water is flowing from the hose and changed the valve then this is the only other thing that can cause you to not have hot water. it is possible but doubtful.

JACUSTOMER-eokj3fob- :

How much is a control board?

S.E.Thomas :

you van follow the two wires to the board from the valve and test the power at the plug on the board or unplug the harness and test for continuity through the two wires. the board can be purchased at a discounted price from www.appliancepartspros.com. the part number is AP4044616 and the cost is $192.42
