Is there a way to figure out if the warm setting on my front loader washer is really using warm water? I run the water to get it warm from the set tub next to the washer but I have no clue if that helps or not. (I do that because it takes a long time for hot water to reach the faucet even though the water heater is just below in the basement.) Thanks in advance.

If you are getting hot water next to the washer, the warm water is entering the washer. Some things just require faith. Put the back of your hand on the glass while it is washing. It should be warm to the touch.

Don’t you have an add a garment button that allows you to open door after it starts filling? Or cancel button that allows that?

I know it made sense to you when you wrote it, but traveling through the internet something happened.

add a garment button
Just to make sure the water is warm??? Back of hand on the window will tell without all the opening and closing.

Take the hoses off and clean the screens......your problem will be solved.

If the dispenser is on top (e.g., Speed Queen) - Open the lid of the detergent compartment on top and feel the water coming in during pre-wash or wash.

If the dispenser is a pull-out drawer on the front: pull it out after the washer fills up with water. Compartment would be hot.
