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.

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..
