Either the solenoid valve that controls the cold water intake is bad,the hose screen in the cold water hose is plugged or the hot/cold mix control isn't letting in cold water due to a voltage problem that sends power to the cold water solenoid valve to open it

Is a loud noise normal when drawing off hot water for tea?


not if it never did it before
when you draw off hot water , there is normally fresh water let in to keep the unit full
this cold water hitting the boiling water will produce steam which is allowed to escape hence the noise.

Maytag Atlantis Washer - no cold water


Check the solenoid valves. If it's connected to hard water, the minerals build up inside and won't let the internal plunger move.

My reliance natural gas water heater overheats causing scalding water to come out of my faucets. I have had authorized service companies come out three times to replace and retrofit different controls and...


Information below is for tank-type electric or gas heater only.

There is a condition called stacking.
This might apply to your water heater or not.
Having authorized service people to your house 3 times suggests more complicated mix of problems.

Stacking is caused when there are repeated short draws of hot water.
As you know, each time any hot water is drawn out of faucet, cold water immediately enters bottom of tank through the dip tube. The dip tube is connected to cold water inlet and runs to bottom of tank.
So all cold water enters bottom of tank close to the gas water heater thermostat.
See illustration of dip tube, that also shows copper thermostat sticking into tank that is connected to gas valve.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Clean-sediment-out-of-water-heater.html#flushelectric

Let's say your water heater if fully heated and burner is off.
A short draw of hot water causes cold water to enter tank.
Another short draw. And then another short draw, each draw happens close to same time as other draws.
Water at top of tank is plenty hot, but bursts of cold water get near thermostat and cause thermostat to turn on burner.
Burner heats water and more hot water rises to top of tank. Water at top of tank becomes overheated each time stacking occurs.

Again, a stacking situation may not be the cause of your problem.
However, remember if single-handled faucet is opened straight upward, then that draws both hot and cold water. And cold water immediately enters tank.
Only when the single-handled faucet is lifted with the handle all the way to the right, does it draw only cold water. Even so, some single-handled faucets have bleed-over between hot and cold sides, so hot water is drawn anyway.

Another possibility is that the dip tube ends at or near thermostat, instead of going all the way to bottom of tank. The dip tube should go straight down from cold water inlet, but dip tubes are made of plastic, and some self-cleaning tanks have a curved dip tube or dip tube with perforations that create currents designed to stir sediments off bottom of tank (although this is not proven to be effective deterrent to sediment formation).

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.

Cold wash/rinse selected, but only hot water is used


I have a Sears front load washer and I also noticed that on a cold wash/cold rinse cycle the machine was drawing hot water.

Laundry detergents require water to be at a certain temperature to aid in disolve. The machine adds sufficient hot water, regardless of the cycle, until that temp is reached. If I was to use a cold water detergent the machine, because it has no way of knowing which detergent I'm using, will still add hot water until that minimum temp is released. I don't know if there are machines available which include detergent type as an option?

Water temperature from the water dispenser of our new refrigerator is equal to the environment temp.it is not cold at all.is it normal?the dispenser produces ice cubes but not cold water


You may not have filled the water reservoir when you hooked up the fridge. Run about 2 gallons of water through the dispenser. Then wait about 12 hours before you draw more water. This way the dispenser will fill and have time to cool down. It should stay cold after this.
