I've inherited this washing machine but there is no manual with it.
I notice that there is only a COLD Water Hookup?????
How does this work? Does it heat water internally as it eeds it???

DOES THIS MODEL WASHER ACTUALLY HEAT THE WATER? OR JUST ALLOWS A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF HOT WATER TO BE RELEASED OR MIXED WITH COLD WATER? U CAN CHECK THE SWITCH WITH A MULTI METER FOR OHMS OR CONTINUITY NO NEED FOR A TECH GUY
pull the hot water hose off at the faucet and machine and check for blockage in the hot water hose,clean or replace the hose sediment screens,then hook back up to water faucet and flush hose with hot water,then check water valve on machine for a screen and clean it as well before reconnecting hot water hose
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
The water inlet filters are inside where the hot and cold water supply hoses screw into the machine. Turn the water off, unscrew the hoses and they should be visible. However it might not be those causing the machine not to fill. If they needed cleaning the water would fill- but taking longer each wash.
If you confirm the filters are clear, it is more likely to be symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, or the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
No, the machine does not have a heater unless it has a sanitizing cycle which heats already hot water even hotter.
For the machine to work as advertised, you'll need hot and cold water connections. However, if you just hookup the cold water and run the machine on its cold-water setting it will wash -- the laundry may not be as clean as you would like in some cases, but the machine will operate properly.
Hi. I had the same problem with my Bosch washing machine and called
Bosch...was told the same thing...$99.00 for service call. I managed to fix my
problem by doing the following:
Removed hot & cold water supply hoses.
Took filter screens out of both hoses.
Removed filter from cold inlet on back of washing machine. I noticed some
oily buildup on both of the cold screens so opted to not put any of them back
Then I put hot & cold water supplies back on the wall hookup, but
crossed the lines where they came into the back of the machine intentionally so
that the hot water line fed into the cold side of the washing machine and vice
Then I ran a couple loads on "cold" which was actually hot water coming in
to the machine.
The reason I did this was that I figured there must be some more waxy
buildup inside the machine in the cold lines and hoped the hot water would melt
it like when you rinse a greasy pan under hot water.
I hope this helps you.
Most washers require both hot and cold supply. If it has two hose fittings on the back, then you need both hot and cold. I've only seen Asko washers that need just the cold. Even if your washer has a water heat option, it will only heat during a portion of the cycle if the option is selected, it is not a substitute for the hot water supply.
