Washing machine water temperature may be incorrect due to several reasons. You will be happy to know that it is easy to fix the problem related to wrong water temperature. If you follow the steps given below, we think that you will be able to identify the cause of the problem and fix it with zero to little money.

  1. 1 Repair it free: Find if you have warranty for your washing machine. If you bought your cloth washer within one year, it is most likely that you have warranty. Most appliance manufacturers provide one year free warranty. If you have warranty, call the company and get your washing machine fixed. If you do not have warranty and do not want to spend too much money, you will have to spend some time to identity and possibly fix the problem. The steps below will guide you through the process of identifying and fixing the problem.
  2. 2 Check for hot and cold water: Set the washing machine for the first wash cycle, and then try with cold temperature. Repeat this process for hot temperature. If any of the temperature setting fails to work, check the faucets if they are ON or OFF. Turn the faucets ON if they are OFF or they are partly ON. If this does not solve the problem, proceed to next step.
  3. 3 Water heater: Check if your home water heating system is working or not. If there is any problem, fix the water heating system and operate the washing machine at different temperature settings. Read the steps below if this does not resolve the issue.
  4. 4 Kinked supply hose: Check if any of the supply hoses is kinked. If so, try to straighten it. Sometimes when a hose is kinked, it may have small holes when you straighten it. If you see any hole or weak area in the hose, you should replace the drain hose with a new one. Start the washer and check if the water temperature is correct. Proceed to the next step if you get incorrect water temperature
  5. 5 Clogged supply hose: Turn off water supply to the washer. Disconnect the supply hoses from the washer and the water inlet valve. Pry out the filter screens using screw driver and clean them using running water. Flush the hoses with water from a running hose. Check the inside of the hose for any material that may have clogged the hose. If you find any clog, clear the clog by inserting a plastic tube. Put the filter screens in the cleaned hoses and install them in the washer. Tighten the ends of the hose with screws and clamps. Turn on both cold and hot water faucets (be sure you have enough pressure). Operate the washing machine and check if the water has correct temperature now. Go to the next step if the water temperature is wrong.
  6. 6 If the steps above fail to solve the water temperature problem in your washing machine, call a qualified appliance repair technician to fix it.
