washer

We had a brand new washer installed at Lazy Days when we purchased our RW. Of course I did not test it when we picked it up. It only washes on HOT and I checked the valves and both hot and cold are on. Any ideas? I can take it back to Lazy Days, but it would be a one or two day project and gas expense. I would rather try and figure it out myself..with your help of course. Any ideas???

test one -
make sure all valves (along the way) are open
test two -
disconnect hoses and see what comes out

Agree with John - need to make sure you have a supply, and there are some issues with the Redwood hoses kinking, at least on the 36RL, 36FB.

You can cut a short piece of hose and just run it down the drain and feel if anything comes out or if it is hot.

If you have hot and cold supply, then the washer may be a problem and you can call them direct to see how to resolve. For Splendide, even Sears can fix them now, but I'm not sure what brand you have.

Brad, the 36FB doesn't have the washer hose issue, our W/D are stackables in the closet between the shower and bedroom on the door side of the RW so the drain hose doesn't go under the bes [opposite side of the coach].
I thing the issue is in the RL's and GK's, the models with the side-by-side W/D in the curb side slide, these are the ones with the flexible hoses that are routed under the bed.

Oh that's right Chuck - thanks for correcting me. I keep thinking the FB has the w/d in the side, but I had to look it up and its the RL and RE and RB. Looks like the GK is like yours

I have no water coming in my cold line so how do I trace the line. One person said under the bed some of the lines run, is that correct?

ya - look under the bed. You may have a kinked hose. Dave and Ginny have some pics of the issue if you want to PM them.

I've had to go under the bed on our 36RL, not for the hoses but to solve a problem with the bedroom slide not opening fully. The culprit was the washer drain line clamp support being too close to the edge of the bed's wood frame at the base, it also caused the top of the bed to pull away from the side wall. I did the fix myself but it wasn't a pleasant experience since it occurred in the driveway when I brought the brand new trailer home for the first time! The DW was not impressed.

To access the plumbing under the bed you have to take off the mattress, then the metal box spring (four screws) and then the two plywood pieces underneath (about a dozen screws). I've forgotten if the screws are Phillips or Robertson head. The mattress, spring and plywood can be stacked in the bedroom area while you check the plumbing.
