Question about Hotpoint WM56 Front Load Washer
The water supply I have to the washer is a cold water line only. At present I have a y piece connection to supply to both hot and cold water inlets. Are they both required or can I cap one and supply cold only to the cold input?
I think only cold water is enough. The washer machine will warm up the water.

Most washers made today, are cold fill only, best way to check is look at rear of washer, and if there is only one hose, then it is cold fill only, if 2 hoses, then hot and cold fill..
So if your boiler is not working, then it should be o/k to use if cold fill only.
Plz rate my solution.

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.

All Hotpoint washers have heater element regardless of whether they are cold fill only, or hot and cold fill.
if 2 connections at rear, then it is hot and cold fill, if only 1 connection, then it is cold fill only.
Please rate my solution.

First check the screens in the end of the hose and inside the water inlet valve. If clear you need to remove the top and check to see if you have power to the water inlet valve, there will be a solenoid for hot and one for cold. Check for power on the cold solenoid when washer is put into a fill cycle. If you have power replace the water inlet valve. The whole valve must be replaced. They are inexpensive and easy to replace.
