    Default WT5070CW LG Washer - Replaced Water Inlet Valve but all Cycles Run Hot Water

    Model Number: WT5070CW
    Brand: LG
    Age: 6-10 years


    Our washer would not stop running water so after viewing the advice here, we replaced the water inlet valve. That fixed the problem but we now have a new issue. We've washed 3 loads and no matter which cycle we select, the washer runs hot water - even in the rinse cycle which is supposed to be cold water. Could we have received a faulty part? Did we install incorrectly? Could this be a new issue?

    Any help trouble shooting would be greatly appreciated!

    Here's the water inlet valve for your model:

    It sounds like you got the fill hoses reversed.

    See if that's the case and keep us posted.
