Most modern washing machines take water from the cold supply only. They heat the water inside the machine.

If a machine is washing in cold water (i.e. not heating the water), then it has a fault and an engineer needs to be called.

If, on the other hand, the water is being heated and the clothes aren't coming out clean enough, the problem could be that the quantity of laundry exceeds the quantity recommended for the programme used. You can usually put the maximum laundry weight in for a hot cotton wash, but you have to restrict the quantity to about a third of the4 maximum weight for a wool wash.

If the machine is stuffed full and being run on a 40 degree easy care wash, the clothes won't come out as clean. In this case, the solution is to reduce the amount of laundry in the machine.

They make a Y or T-adapter so you could hook up the hoses (you;d have to pick up one for hot water) and then the other part of the attachment to the washer.

This is not exactly it, but it'll give you an idea of what you need to look for:

Changed the element in my bosch washing machine and still trips the electric ,can i wash on a cold wash without tripping the electric.


In the washing machine your hot water supply comes from your water heater. The element that is tripping is part of your electrical so no you cannot expect a different result. You will have to fix the problem first before you wash.

Hot water supply to washer works,but not cold water


Probably the small filter screen in the cold water supply line is plugged up with sediment. The screen will either be directly on where the hose connects to the supply line, or may be on the rear of the washing machine where the cold water supply line connects to the washer, usually a simple screw-on just like a garden hose.

Cant connect the water hoses the machine


Cold fill only , designed to run efficiently on lower temperatures and with cold water powders

Blank off the hot supply line at the back of your washer before you fit it back to the wall.

Only two pipes on the machine Cold In, Waste out

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.

Washing maching won't rinse in cold water


hi is this hot and cold water piped machine? ie two connections on rear of machine for hot and cold pipes ? if so are your pipes connected properly on machine and the water supplies? if cold supply is connected to hot supply then wash inlet allows water in washer then washes in cold? but when rinse is due? the elec valve that has hot water pipe connected?? is failing to open allowing water flow of hot on rinse so advise recheck pipes for flow of water from both? when disconnected from machine if flow ok then possible valve blocked/faulty hope you can understand above? if you can give more info on your machine it would help to offer a remedy?

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.

Error code


hi sir one of these problem will be there 1 - No cold fill. Check that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked. 
2 - No hot fill.The ambient temperature is likely to be below freezing possibly due to the pipes being frozen. Also check that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked. 
3 - No mixed fill. It is likely that the water is not turned on at the taps. 
4 - Check the water supply, inlet valve and hot and cold hose connections. 
4 - A fault with the water heating has occurred. 
5 - Water is not being pumped out and a flood condition could occur. Check that the drainage hose is raised to the recommended minimum height and that the pipe is not blocked. 
6 - Extremely high water level Disconnect or turn off the water supply and ensure that the water level does not rise any more. Then book a service engineer. 
7 - Door not closed properly. Close door firmly at the 3 o'clock position. 
E20/1 - The thermistor resistance has drifted or the temperature scanning sequence is incorrect. The ambient temperature could be below freezing. 
thank u............
