Question about Hoover HW160M Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Hoover HW160m - double inlet but only 1 tap at new build.

Morning all,
I have the Hoover HW160m washer / Dryer.
It has 2 hoses (1 hot 1 cold) however I am moving into a new build house which only has a cold water outlet.
Will I be able to just connect the cold water inlet and be on my way? Will i need to buy a adapter to feed both inlets?
Will machine heat water itself?

Many Thanks in advance

Hello,

You can use the cold water only with no issues at all. The only thing you will have to do is buy a cap to block off the hot water inlet on the back of the machine otherwise the cold water will flow out through it onto your floor etc.

And yes, your machine has an element built in which will heat the water for you!

Regards,
Adrian.

There is no water flowing to to be washed


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,

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Hoover Nextra fault code 1 actually decodes as 'door interlock/door switch' (???!!)
Fault code 2 states' fill time-out or solenoid valve etc'

Does the Hoover HW160M washer/dryer need an exhauest duct to carry away the water vapour from the dryer?


No vent hose required
This appliance condenses the water vapour to a liquid and punps it down the drain.

I have a model WFE1070BD*CD,(5 months old) does this machine use cold water ? Both hot and cold taps were connected at installation but on delicate wash clothes are still very hot .


Check the hose connections on the back.My guess is the lines are crossed. Double check: Is the cold water supply piped to the cold inlet on the washer and the hot water piped to hot inlet? They may be reversed either on the hoses or in the wall.
To check the in-wall piping, feel the the hose bibb marked cold...well, is it? cold I mean. If it is hot, the pipes are crossed in the wall. If it's cold, check that the hose is running to the inlet marked C or cold, or is blue. If it isn't your inlets are crossed. Either way, switch the hoses and you should be good.

How do I install a second hand waher/dryer with limited piping?


1 yes all standard.2 Yes you can get a Y piece. 3 no you will only use water from cold. But you can solve that by going to a good hardware store or B.Q and gettein a self cutting tap for washing machines. You can fit this in just minutes, and do not even need to turn off the water supply. just make sure there is a clean straight piece of pipe to fit it to. 4 yes fit waste pipe to u bend under sink.

Hoover washing machine top load, model 550m.5.5kg


water leak from cold hose nothing to do with other problem. tighten hose connection and fit a new hose washer overfilling probably because air chamber blocked. remove lid. you will see a pressurestat somewhere at the top - usually round with anything from 3 to 7 wires and a small tube underneath. follow hose down and it connects to the air chamber. make sure this is free of gung and check hose for splits and has no blockage. to check the pressure stat itself, attach your own hose to the stat and while machine in fill mode, blow down this hose and you should hear a click and water intake will stop
