No Cold Water Wash; Only Hot

WAS20160UC washer is brand new. When I try to run a cold wash, only hot water runs in. I called Bosch and they seem to think the hoses are swapped. They told me if the cold water were turned off, the washer would show an error message when I attempted to turn it on.  
I have a plumber coming over to check it out, but if that's the case,and the hoses are indeed swapped, wouldn't only cold water enter when I select the hot wash temp?

    I am still confused ... I have no problem doing a hot wash, just a cold wash. No mater what temp setting I choose, the water always comes in hot. If the hoses were accidently switched when installing the machine, wouldn't selecting a hot wash then make the cold water enter?

    I have the same exact problem. My Bosch Axxis will only wash with hot water (regardless of the temperature setting), even though both hoses are connected.



    Any luck getting an answer?

    Thanks.

When doing a hot wash the machine is designed to take both hot and cold water. This is because it can heat the water to your selected temperature but if the water coming in is too hot it needs to cool it down to avoid heat damage to your laundry.
Hope this helps & thanks for using Fixya.

    If your pipes are on the wrong way round the clothes will rinse in hot water assuming there is hot water in your system.

    The clothes would then be hot to touch at end of cycle.If this is not the case then pipes are correctly fitted.

    Hope that helps.

I dont know what the piece is called but it goes on the back of my front load washer and it seperates the hot water from the cold water and its cracked


Are you referring to the water valve assembly? If so, you can purchase a new assembly. Check with a parts distributor. You will need the brand and model number.

Unplug the washer. Turn off the water supply (hot and cold) to the washer and disconnect the hoses at the washer (there is no need to disconnect the hoses at the wall). Make certain that you replace the hoses correctly on the new water valve with corresponding hot and cold hoses coming from the wall. Disconnect the wire harnesses to each temperature (hot and cold) on the water valve. The harnesses should be color-coded. Replace them correctly on the new valve. Turn the water supply back on and plug in the washer. Run a small water level while testing different temperatures (hot, cold and warm). Check for water leaks and proper temperature.

You are better off swapping the valves over in the machine until you can buy a replacement valve. I've done this for a month or so until I replaced the valve. Works as long as you only use a cold wash and your cold water is not too cold as to make the machine want to add some hot. If it does this then simply press start to clear the fault.

Kenmore 400 washer on warm cycle begins to fill with warm water and then it turns cold. Repairman can't seem to figure what is wrong. This is a brand new washer.


When the water turns cold, check the other hot water outlets in the house. Possibly the water heater is simply running out of hot water.

If that's not it, I'd have the repairman replace the water valve and while he's got the hoses off, check to be sure the filter screens are not stopped up. There's really not much to the water temp control so there's not much else I can think of that might cause this problem.

Bosch washing machine not drawing water


you probably have the "burst free" hoses, this machine draws water too fast so the hoses think they burst, change the hoses to the original or get new ones that aren't burst free and this should solve your problem

Bosh error code E02


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 in.
  • 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 versa.
  • 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. IT WORKED!!! I hope this helps you.

Cold/Hot water


if this is a machine with two fill hoses, then you have them the wrong way round. to check, put on rinse and cold water should come in. if not, swap the hoses round. don't rely on what you house plumbing says is hot or cold - this is often wrong

I have a creda simplicity 1000 front loader washer.


Maybe the pipes are not connected to the heater on the wall. You could heat your water in the machine, if there is a provision; most machines have it.
