My washer uses hot water only. Even when I set it on a cold

This answer was rated:

My washer uses hot water only. Even when I set it on a cold cycle. The cold water is turned on and there are no kinks in the hose. What should I do? It has already ruined my clothes that need cold water.
Thanks for using this service. Please be logged in to rate my assistance when we are done. Rating 3-5 is good, but 1-2 is bad so talk with me first.

Can you get me the complete model number off the unit?

Where do I find the model number?

Lift the lid and look at the frame and lid. If it is not there check the back edge of the console.

Did I give you the right number?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I gave the model number and even asked if I gave the right number, but I have not gotten a response.

Again the model number is XXXXX

The model number just came through now the server has been slow. With that model if you set it to cold and it only allows hot water in you likely have a bad log valve. The valve has a thermister temp control in it and they go bad very often. Replace this part and you should be good to go. Just copy and paste this link into your address bar and sorry about the delay. Computers! Please rate my assistance thank you!
