Water not heating

Hi. I don't believe that my IDW 603 is heating the water on any of the wash programmes. I only have a cold water feed connected but presumably the machine should heat the water anyway? Any suggestions gratefully received. Tks PAul

    Yes, it seems to go through all the wash cycles. However, the cleaning isn't great and if I open the machine at any point in the cycle or at the end of the cycle, there is no heat, unlike my last machine which would have steam and heat if you opened the machine mid-cycle or at the end.

    Perhaps there is some of sort of thermal trip-out on the thermostat which has tripped. If so, can i easily reset it? Alternatively is it likely that the thermostat or heating element has blown?

    I have the same problem, everything works okay but it keeps going endlessly over the last part of the cycle and displays 1 minute left on the cycle. I have tried 2 lots of descaler as we live in a hard water area and I thought that the element may have scaled up stopping it from heating the water. Every cycle we have got runs cold.

    I have the same issue, the dishwasher is not heating up the cold water intake. This has become apparent from finding cutlery and crockery still dirty. On trying to use a dishwasher cleaning agent, the cleaning agent will not release as the water does not get to operating temperature.

There is nothing to indicate that the machine heats the water. We thought by connecting the y piece and just using cold, it would only be cold water. .

Most new washing machines only require a cold water feed! You should only connect the cold water feed and leave the hot water feed disconnected and turned off at the valve.

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.

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.

Hi. I've just been loaned a Whirlpool awm 5125/4 washing machine (while mines gone for repair), but it has on the back of the machine, a hot inlet and a cold inlet. My machine only requires a cold water...


Your machine can be connected for cold fill only but, you will need to connect a "Y-Piece" for it to work:
The tail of the "Y" attaches to the cold water valve on your pipework. You then attach both hot and cold water hoses to the branches of the "Y" and connect both hot and cold water hoses to your washing machine. The wash cycles will take longer when connected this way as the machine has to heat the water internally. It will also be less energy effecient.

Please post back if you need further assistance.

I have a whirpool washing machichine the creaion model. I was wondering if needs a hot water supply or is it ok to use a y shaped hose.

If you have a hot water supply then use it otherwise use a Y hose to connect the cold supply to both hot and cold inlets. Machines are generally made with cold only inlets today as most washing detergents are formulated for cooler washing temperatures and the mfrs say that it is more convenient and cheaper to heat what is required rather than draining your domestic hot water tank. There will not be a problem with using cold fill to both inlets but you can expect some of the hotter was programmes to take longer than expected as the water will have to be heated in the machine to allow the programme to run correctly.

Does the machine heat up the water

If you have only a cold water feed then all of the washing will be in cold water. Dishwashers heat up the water, but clothes washers do not.

You can cancel the programme at any point by holding down the last button on the right hand side for about 10 seconds until it clears (its the same button you use to get it going again when you open up the door).
