Strange Washer Behavior
Yesterday I purchased a new Kenmore top loading washing machine from the Sears Outlet. Model 29522. Hooked everything up and turned it on. Everything seems to work fine except when the setting is on "warm" the machine only seems to fill with cold water. There is no mixing of the hot and cold to produce warm. I called Sears repair and they said it was normal. The washer first puts hot water in and then fills up with cold. This does not seem right to me. First, I will only get warm wash water if the run from the water heater to the washer is not too long. Second, if the water coming in is hot, the clothes will be sitting in very hot water for a bit before the cold comes in. Is this normal?
