Do y7ou have 2 hoses at the back of the machine one for cold water and one connected to the hot water tap of the house. If not then you have a cold water in only. If you have 2 hoses have you connected the hoses into the machine correctly Have you checked to see if your machine has a heating element under the bowl for heating the water. As an appliance shop to verify if you have by the model number of the machine. otherwise you have a cold washing machine and unless you can plumb hot water to it that is all you will have.

Testimonial: "Hello the machine (Siemens WDi-1440) is a cold fill only with one hose. I have had it since 2007 and up until yesterday it was working - it probably has a heating element. For some reason it no longer heats up on any wash."

SOURCE: washing machine no cold water

chnge your water valve or your cold water hose. something could be blocking up your hose. also when you ask machine for cold water does the machine hum? if so check to see if cold water is on. if the water is on then replace your water valve.

With no clothes in the washer start a program. The washe level is below the door glass. the rinse level comes up 3 cm on the glass. The washer is designed to be water efficent. If you are not getting water this high, look at the pressure switch hose, maybe it is restricted and causing the pressure to be held in the washer.

SOURCE: Washer fills only with hot water

Disconnect cold water hose from machine. Inspect the filter screen on the cold water connection. DO NOT REMOVE SCREEN. If full of debris, use a spray bottle with a hard spray to remove debris. If unable to remove or cold is still slow, replace valve.

SOURCE: wont fill with hot water

3 things to check.. Make sure that you are getting hot water upply. Check your water inlet valve. IF both are ok then check the switch to make sure that it is sending power to the water inlet valve to let it open. These parts can be found behind the knobs after you remove the cover

SOURCE: GE super capacity heavy duty washing not filling w/hot water

On an older model washer, you probably have a bad water valve. (hot water solenoid coil electrically " open ") Newer models, now there's a can of worms. Some models use thermistatically controled water valves to limit water temps, so you may not be able to get true hot water. Also, if you are checking the temp as the machine fills, some models will only fill with cold if the lid is open. (safety feature) The only way to see what is really going on is to fill the machine with cold and use a thermometer to check the water temp, then, pump that out and fill (with the lid closed) with hot and check to see if that temp is higher. As stated previously, water temp may not really be " HOT " but may be warmer than " COLD ". That may be as good as you will be able to do, as all manufacturers are trying to reduce energy consumption. Thank your government.

EW1200 is rinsing in hot water how do we change that


Hot wash, hot rinse is for 'whites'. Cold wash, cold rinse is for 'colors'. Warm wash, cold or warm rinse is for 'permanent press'. Check your settings to see if you have these options. Double check the hoses, put the machine on cold fill and feel the hoses.
Has someone worked on the machine and possibly put the wires on the solenoids wrong? Easy mistake to make.

Fault-F13 What does it means?


Hotpoint Washing Machines and Washer Dryers
  • F10 - No cold fill. Check that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked.
  • F11 - 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.
  • F12 - No mixed fill. It is likely that the water is not turned on at the taps.
  • F13 - Check the water supply, inlet valve and hot and cold hose connections.
  • F14 - A fault with the water heating has occurred. Book a washing machine repair
  • F15 - 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.
  • F16 - 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 washing machine repair
  • F17 - Door not closed properly. Close door firmly at the 3 o'clock position.
  • F20/1 - The thermistor resistance has drifted or the temperature scanning sequence is incorrect. The ambient temperature could be below freezing. Book a washing machine repair.
  • F30/31 - A motor drive problem has occurred. Try running the programme again. If the problem persists book a service engineer.
  • F40 - Water below protection level during a heat step. Book a washing machine repair.
  • F41 - Water level detect sequence incorrect. Book a washing machine repair.
  • F50/51 - Customer language and wash programme have not been saved. The system will run with default conditions (1000rpm max and English language). Book a washing machine repair to re-programme your product.
The code f-13 refers to the water valve. Check it for any obstructuions in the screen and if your thinking it is bad you can always swap the hot and cold lines and change the settings to get the temperature you want and that will tell you if one of the valves is not working. Say if you want cold but no cold is coming into the waher, swap the cold and hot lines and call for hot water, if cold comes in then, then you will know that the cold valve is bad. If neither valve is working then replace the assembly

Which is hot & cold inlet connection


If you want to connect up a washing machine that uses hot and cold water but you only have a cold water supply (such as in a basement or garage) you can use a Y Piece connector to connect the hot and cold fill hoses to a single cold water supply (external link to 4Washerhelp spares).
The washing machine will then work OK. Simply screw the Y-Piece onto the tap, and then screw the hot and cold fill hoses to the Y-piece and connect the other end of the fill hoses to the washing machine. (You may also be able to buy this part from a DIY store like B&Q)
If you don't connect a water supply to the hot valve (and simply connect the cold water hose to the cold valve leaving the hot valve with nothing connected to it) then some wash programs may not work as some programmes only fill with hot water. However, some washing machines will work OK with only the cold fill hose connected. You can always try it and see. The worse that will happen is the washer could either stick on the odd wash programme or may abort on some. If you do this though it's possible for water to drip out of the hot valve on some machines during fill. It's best to use a y-piece if possible.
The fact that you have connected cold water to the hot valve is irrelevant, the washing machine will not know any different and will just heat the water up to the correct temperature. The washing machine may use slightly more electricity but if it's less than 10 years old it shouldn't be significant unless you use a lot of 60 or 90 degree washes. On 40 degree washes, manufacturers argue it's more efficient to fill with cold water only and slowly heat up the water to 40 degrees.

If it is a hot and cold fill m/c, then you can just use it from cold water.
You would need to fit what is called a Y piece connector , this supplys water to both hot and cold valves regardless of what prog you select..
You connect the cold supply to the straight leg of the connector, and the hot and cold to the other 2 connections.
Plz rate this solution.
Thanks.
