Hi Larry,
Do I swap these hoses even if they are correctly hooked up right now ? (Hot water is going where "H" is and cold water is hoing where the "C" is)
If the answer is yes, then what am I to test afterwards...Should I test the HOT-HOT cycle to make sure that only hot water is on ?
yes ,, swap the hoses ,, thaey may have been crosses for a long time without knowing it

I have swaped the hoses and now I have the opposit problem. When HOT/COLD cycle is selected, the CODL water come on first.
ok ,, thanks ,, reverse the hoses and replace the water temp switch in the control panel ,, you can get it at a local appliance parts dealer near you with the model number

I thank you for your efforts in assisting me and I had already figured that the temp switch would be the problem. I will go ahead and accept the answer but I'd like to ask you one last question. If I replace the switch and the problem persists, what would be another source of the problem? Could the controller board or selector switch be causing this problem?
the only other thing would be the selector switch
