If it is a hot and cold fill m/c, what you need is a fitting that is referred to as a" Y" piece..To fit it, connect the straight leg of the "Y" piece to the cold supply tap, and then fit a hose to each of the two outlets, connecting each of these to the 2 inlets on the valve to the washer..
It will then fill with water, regardless of the programme you select.
You can purchase the "Y" piece connector from most hardware shops, or B&Q, and the like.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

My Hotpoint WMA35 leaks water internally into the drum when the machine is not in use ?


The inlet water solenoid valve is faulty and must be replaced. usually it's right under the top cover where the inlet hose enters the machine. An easy DIY repair but remember to disconnect the electricity and water supply first.

Does the hotpoint need hot water to feed it or does it heat its own water i.e has a cold water feed


Hi,

If it has 2 water inputs one is for hot (normally marked with RED) and the other for cold (sometimes no colour, sometimes plain white) .
If it has one input it is for cold.
In BOTH cases the washer will have a heater, in case the hot water supply is not hot enough and for heating the cold ;-0)

Hope this answers your question,

Does the wma76 hotpoint need a hot water feed? Is a cold water feed enough?


Hi from retired Englishman in France (it's 21:29!),

If your washer has 2 pipes for feeding water then one is for hot and the other is for cold naturally.
All washing machines have a water heating element in them- in case any hot water supply is not hot enough for its wash.
If you only have a cold tap you will need to purchase a 'Y' connector. This screws onto the cold tap supply (single end) and the hot and cold feed pipes connected to the washer screw onto the other two ends. The machine will now be fooled into thinking it has two separate feeds!
The machine opens the valve for the 'hot' water supply (which of course is cold) and the heats it up to the required temperature for the wash cycle. Afterwards, when the machine requires cold water for rinsing, it opens up the 'cold' supply (which is the same supply as for the hot water!) and is happy.

Hope this answers your question.

Only takes on cold water will not take on hot when you disconnect pipe hot water runs through so supply is ok


If it is a hot and cold fill washer with 2 seperate inlet hoses, and no hot is entering, then either the hot inlet valve is faulty, or the valve is not getting an electric feed to it.
Make sure that the programme you select is ahot prog, as many of the programmes are3 cold fill only.

The top off Hotpoint WMA35 washing machine?


Located at the front end of the top cover, are 2 plastic covers, prise them out with a small screw driver or something similar, and inside are 2 torx screws, get a torx screwdriver, and undo the 2 screws, if tyou don't have the correct screwdriver, you may be able to undo them with a small screwdriver.
Give the top a good hard push towards the rear, and it should come off..
Hope this helps.

Hot point aquarius 1100 - does this have a heating element for cold water feed ? or does is need direct hot water feed ? (there is a inlet at back for both hot and cold so presume no heating element ?)


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.

Thanks.

Inlet hose leaking a top branch


There are 2 versions of the Hotpoint WD640, a cold fill only version, and a hot and cold fill version..
From your question, I conclude you have the hot and cold fill version, which requires a hot and cold fill supply..
I do not understand what you mean by leaking from top banch, perhaps you can clarify.

Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

hi there,
try the following, it may help:

Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently
allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual
if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.

If you're sure the machine isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests:

* Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on.


* Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel
settings are correct.
