Disconnecting the heater makes it sit there forever waiting for the
temp to be reached. Instead wire over one of the temp stats.

Cold washing works fine most of the time, but there are times here and
there where hot is necessary to get a good result.

I never understood why almost no commercial washers dont have a cold
wash setting, makes no sense.

Next comes the q of why use washing powder when you can use,..

from meow2222@care2.com contains these words:

I don't like washing machines that have fixed temperatures for given
wash programmes - I prefer to be able to choose my own. If I want to run
a long wash at 30C then that's what I want to do - not have the machine
force me to do it at 80C instead. Some machines have a seperate
thermostat dial - which makes a lot of sense.

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

What are you doing trying to operate a washing machine anyway? That's
women's work.

Get back to the pub!

Its been a long time since I had one like that. I would prefer that
too, but I understand why its not done. Most people refuse to put even
30 seconds thought into understanding how to use a machine, and will
therefore fail to correctly operate a machine with separate stat, wash
time, agitation and other controls. Selecting 'wool' or 'cotton' is a
no brainer - well, almost.
