SOURCE: can i use just cold

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Yes! You will need to purchase a 'Y' piece which is used upside down - the single end is screwed onto the water supply tap and each of the hot and cold water feeds to the machine screw onto each of the double lower 'arms'. The machine opens its 'hot' water valve, receives just the single supply cold water and then has to heat it to the correct temperature. When it wants cold water- for rinses- it opens its cold water valve ..........and gets the same water supply as the hot valve!
'Y' pieces are normally obtained from local hardware stores - certainly in the UK and France!
Good luck,
John C

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Since the code is for the door, it makes sense that the washer will not work. Try adjusting the lock switch. It may be bad but sometimes you can adjust it and mess with it. Hopefully, the washer will then work. If not, you are going to need a new one. I still don't know why they have these. They cause more problems then they are worth. If you have a questions, feel free to ask and thanks for using FixYa.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

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,

Westinghouse dishwasher sb916sk runs 22 minutes then cuts power


Is it on a dedicated circut? A dishwasher needs to have a 12Ga two conductor with ground line that is dedicated to ONLY the dishwasher and possibly share with the garbage disposal.
Also, it should be on a 20 Amp breaker.

Our bosch washing machine is about 9 years old and won't drain properly. The "end" light flashes as if the drain is blocked but it's not. If we manually drain the machine we can get onto...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
As you do not mention 'filter' I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

Hi. I have a Bosch precision wfg 2820 front load washing machine. The drum no longer spins round. The belt is still attached and seems to be ok. Any ideas where to look next? Thanks


You say seems to be ok.....can you hold the belt and turn the drum? Is there more that 3/4" slack in belt when you push it side ways? How old is this machine and have you ever had it serviced?

I have a Bosch Exxcel 1400 S Express which blew


There is no internal fuse in the washer to replace.
If you have replaced the fuse, make sure that is is a good one.
If you are satisfied that you have power to the washer, then I'm afraid it sounds quite serious.
Trust this helps.
