This is true. Just check if the machine has one or two water connections. If it has two you need a hot connection also

    if there are two water connection points then ideally yes. The machine will work if you only connect a cold supply but will need to use the heater in the machine to reach wash temperature. This will mean longer wash cycles.

    Yes it does

Water does not get hot on a hot wash


Shut off the water. Disconnect & check the BOTH water supply hoses at the MACHINE to check for obstructions / kinks / etc: Check for and clean any strainer / filter on the hoses and inlet to the washer. Direct the hoses into a tub or other container and turn water ON. make sure you have water flow from BOTH hoses and that one is HOT and the other is COLD. If OK, reconnect to machine. Turn water back ON. Choose a WARM wash.

If you get COLD only, you probably have a bad HOT solenoid - if HOT only you have a bad COLD solenoid. Be sure by:

Shut water off and swap hose connections (hot to cold & cold to hot) and try again.

If you get COLD only, you probably have a bad COLD solenoid - if HOT only you have a bad HOT solenoid. If you get HOT only, you probably have a bad COLD faucet / hose - if HOT only you have a bad COLD faucet / hose.

Replace the bad solenoid as needed. Good luck!

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.

Where is the filter on the machine


Hello,

Unplug the washing machine and turn off the water.

Open the small trap door next to the drain hose connection on the back of the washer to gain access to the filter.

Take care.

Friend got a hotpoint FDW 80 need to no is it hot water supply or cold?


Connect your dishwasher to the HOT supply line. The most common method is to connect to the hot water supply line in your kitchen. Before running the dishwasher, it is also a good idea to turn your hot water on to allow the water in the line to heat up. This will reduce the time is takes for the dishwasher to heat the water for the wash cycle and cut down on the cost of electricity.

Relocation of hotpoint aquarius 1000 washing machine


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.

Hotpoint wma48 wahing machine will not pump out water


It does have a filter but its in an awkward place. first remove the access panel at back of machine. To the right you will see the pump. Follow the pipe from pump to drum and you will notice that its much bigger where it meets the drum. remove pipe at this end and its there.best to take machine outside first.

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?
