SOURCE: not heating cold water

this could be 2 possible symptoms 1 the thermostat which gets the heater element to work. 2 it is the heating element that is faulty if the element has gone then this is about £15 to buy which u get both thermostats which u might has well replace both at the same time now if its the heater element then this will be around £20-25 to replace now my best suggestion is call out an engineer that doesnt charge any call out fee this will tell u exactly which if these it is if its thermostat then do it yourself easy job which will only take u around 30 minutes to do from start to finish if its the heater element then get them to do it which should cost around £65 to do this is because it needs to be sealed properly otherwise it will leak and cause more problems in the long run

You don't need hot and cold connected to your machine you can use just cold, but you DO need a supply of some kind to both valves, or your machine will stop when it comes to the rinse cycle and it won't distribute fabric conditioner. Ask for a cold fill adaptor from any plumbers merchants. It looks like a plastic Y the single stem connects onto your cold supply tap and the two hoses from the machine connect onto the top of the Y. The machine will take longer to do a wash but it will work perfectly.

Make sure the hoses are connected correctly to the water valve on the machine. The connections will be marked with an "H" and a "C".

Given they are correct, most current washing machines have and auto temp feature on the water fill. It allows even cold water settings to bring in some hot water to make sure the water temp is hot enough to efficiently disolve your laundry detergant. The preset temps are usually around 75* for cold, and 105* for warm. Hot water comes in at whatever temp your household water temp is.

hi,

try and switch your hot and cold water hoses around the other way. it should start the cycle with hot and rinse cold.. If it still does it you may have to have it serviced..

Water flow combi will only pass so much , unless there is a blockage in the water section on your boiler, or water inlet tap is not fully open .

Hi! My hot water taps from the wash hand basin and mixer bath has low pressure. I`ve got a combi boiler in the first floor. Can I install a single impeller pump connected from the hot water outlet from the...


In a word no. Combi boilers work on balanced pressure.ie the mains cold supply to the boiler should be around 1 bar minimum which would give a hot water pressure of the same 1 bar. Assuming the cold water pressure is fine, it sounds like you have a restricted flow on the hot side. If you live in an area with water problems the hot water systems pipework calcify over time effectively reducing water flow. Unless any flexi hoses are kinked, check if there are any filters in the appliances that may be blocked.Also check all valves are fully open and if possible check if there are any restrictions at the valves. Failing all that and the taps are in good order it is possible to fit a pump before the boiler but this may only be a temporary fix overall.

Hot water


there are two main faults with combi boilers not giving hot water. one is a faulty flow sensor, the other is the most common which is a blocked heat exchanger caused by debris and scale in the system. this needs to be flushed out or may require a new heat exchanger depending on the age and condition of the boiler some plumbers may suggest a new boiler.
