Why is the washer heating my cold water wash cycle?

If I put my washer onto a cold/cold cycle, my clothes still come out hot. I even shut off the hot water inlet going into the unit to prevent this. Could this be a ATC problem?

Is this a good question?

Sounds like you're getting hot water from the cold water inlet. This could happen if the water hose connections have been reversed. Try running on a hot cycle, if I'm correct the water will be cold.

I will try this tonight - crazy how something like this could possibly be so simple. Thanks very much!


Occam's Razor - The principle is often inaccurately summarized as "the simplest explanation is most likely the correct one." But it works.

sounds like your mixer is bad. I had that happen and just turned off my tankless water heater to get cold water when I realized my mixer was bad
