Turning off the cold water/ LG Waveforce TL?
Thanks to the wonderful souls on this forum, I have a brand new top loading LG Waveforce, model WT5101. I love this machine, and for the first time in 3 1/2 years feel like my clothing is getting clean (I'm coming from a 6 year old Bosch Nexxt, small drum FL which left BO and stains in my clothing even after sanitary cycle and additives and extra rinses).
I love this washer and could spend the day writing about it, but others have done a good job with that already here. The one thing I wish there was is a cycle in between "hot" (120 degrees supposedly) and Sanitary (158 degrees).
When I ran a load of towels on "Hot", after the drum filled, I stuck my thermometer in the tub and swished it around, and it read just over 100 degrees. Needless to say, I'm a little disappointed with that reading.
I have my water heater set at 135 degrees. Would it do damage to the washer if I turned off the cold water to the washer inlet hose just when a hot water cycle is filling? I would turn it back on as soon as the wash cycle is filled, I dont' care what the rinse cycles are at.
I'm still a little confused about the "Bright White" cycle too- if anyone cares to elaborate on it- I know it uses the internal heater, but I'm not sure what it heats up to- the display panel on this cycle's default is "Hot", not "Extra Hot".
