My LG Toploader (wft753a) has a cold and a hot inlet, and the mechanism inside the machine simply turns the flow from each tap on and off. There is no internal heating element in it.

What is the F20 error code?


F-20 error code in Whirlpool Duet Sport washing machine is indication of inadequate water supply. Check both hot and cold water supply lines to make sure machine gets enough water intake. If you do not have a hot water supply to the machine you can only run it with the cold temperature setting. This machine does not have an internal water heater and relies on the hot water supply from the house water heater.

Water not heating up


Moldy smell is most certainly due to left over soap residue and body oils that accumulate between the outer and inner tubs. This happens when there is an oversudsing issue and the extra soap does not breakdown properly. Be sure to use an HE (high efficiency) detergent and do not use too much. 2-3 tablespoons is all that is required. To clean the problem you now have you can use Whirlout (available at Home Depot by the hot tubs). Just use one capful in and empty load with hot water cycle. Repeat once a month to keep your unit fresh and clean. Note, even when selecting a cold cycle the unit will add hot water if needed to make the water at least 78 degrees F. This is to allow the HE soap to break down properly. A problem with your hot water (or the heater) could also cause the soap to not break down and operate efficeintly.

Washing machine doesnt heat the water


Most washing machines do not heat water, they merely let the hot water into the wash tub that comes from your house hot water heater.... when selecting warm, hot and cold water will be mixed together to get warm or when selecting cold.. only the cold water is allowed into the wash tub.. Please provide brand and model number of machine so I can tailor a reply toward your specific washer...

Hi, It sounds like you have the two water pipes fitting on the wrong connectors on the back of the machine.

IE: The hot water pipe (RED connector) on the cold water inlet on the back of the machine (BLUE connector)

Is should be red to red and blue to blue.

LG Tromm Washer


Embarrassing as it was, the hot/cold water hoses were switched - although it was installed by HomeDepot that way. It just didn't seem consistent enough for it to be such an easy solution...but it did the trick!

check for the water seal first if it is leaking! if it does, then it might just be the one causing slipping.
