I saw it once on TV and the only thing I can remember is someone changing genders when he/she was dumped in water (presumably hot).

Can anyone match up these details to an anime series that might have this?

This sounds like Ranma 1/2 - The main character changes gender when they get splashed or come in contact with water

enter image description here

Ranma Saotome and his father, Genma, both practitioners of the Saotome school of anything-goes martial arts, fall into the cursed springs of the legendary training ground of Jusenkyo in mainland China during a training mission. Each spring holds a different curse for any who come in contact with its water, all of which involve who or what has drowned in the spring in the past - Ranma emerges from the spring a girl and Genma a panda, both now cursed to change forms each time they come in contact with hot and cold water.

Hot water change them to their original state while cold water change them to "curse" state – Darjeeling Aug 24 '14 at 8:36
could be this one but are there any others and the character changing genders doesn't have to be the main character – NoLifeKing Aug 25 '14 at 6:39
@NoLifeKing You should try watching something about the anime in hand, to see if it triggers your visual memory. IF you are asking for a list of gender-changing-in-water anime, then... – Mindwin Aug 25 '14 at 15:02
