If you select a cold fill, do you hear the valve humming or buzzing or what exactly happens?

I can feel the water moving in both hoses, but then not so much on the cold, just the hot
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 3 months ago

Well, even with just cold wash selected, it will fill with hot to keep an average temperature of around 70* F. Is it filling at the rinse cycle which uses only cold water?

I don't know
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 3 months ago

So are you just noticing it filling with hot when you start a wash cycle or what made you suspect an issue initially?

Are you sure the hoses are not reversed?

Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 3 months ago

Can you reverse the hoses and select a hot wash and see if it fills with cold, please?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Already did that
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Also tried changing wash temp for load
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 3 months ago

What happens right now if you select a hot wash and start it? Does it fill with hot or cold?
