You will need to use a Y-piece on the cold water valve, any hardware store will have them

Then simply run 2 hoses to the machine from the 1 valve.

First plug off the wall. Before connecting the "hoses" (both hot and cold) to the machine inlets see that the inlet is clean. Connect the outlet hose to the standpipe, not too deep. The outlet hose has to be about 3 feet above ground level; there is a water level mark behind the machine. Both the inlets should be well screwed in, noting the threads of the inlets

You said the water was gushing.....into the machine? Fine .....what next.......post back.

SOURCE: Cold water or cold & hot water connection?

If there is only 1 water connection on the back of the machine then it's a cold water supply only and the machine will be fitted with a heater element to heat the water. If it has 2 water connections then you need the hot supply and should ask someone to fit the correct isolation valve on the capped pipe so you can fit the required hose. Most modern machines are cold water only.

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.

This machine does not have a heater. You could use a Y connector or just cap off the hot and only use the cold settings.

HOTPOINT ULTIMA WD71..WHEN THE MACHINE IS SWITCHED ON TO A WASH PROGRAM IT WORKS FINE FILLING WITH HOT WATER THEN STARTS ITS CYCLE. WHEN THE MACHINE REACHES THE RINSE1 CYCLE IT STOPS WITH A E10 ERROR CODE....


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Following is pre-typed, saves time - in your case just refer to 'cold' please ;-0)

If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call and a check that it isn't the control PCB ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

Can i run my ultima wma74 off the cold feed only?


Hi Naomi from retired Englishman in SW France,

In a word- YES!
You will need to purchase, from a hardware (?) store, a 'Y' adapter. Upside down the single end (internal thread) screws into the cold water supply and the hot and cold washer pipes screw into the double end (external threads). The washer is fooled into thinking it has hot and cold! When it expects hot, it opens its hot valve but instead gets the cold water and has to heat it up. It will therefore take longer for the machine to do the washing. When it wants cold for rinses, it opens its cold valve and gets the same water! Simple ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

HOTPOINT ULTIMA WF860


image_bubbleanswer_04.gif I recently had the same problem with my Hotpoint Ultima WF860P and after some investigations, I found a disconnected tube linked to the pressure switch beneath the top cover was the cause of the problem. In short, this tube forces air to the pressure switch and cuts off the valve feeds.
