Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WMA42 Front Load Washer
I am relocating this washing machine do I need to connect to both hot and cold water supply or will just cold supply do
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.

Sometimes connecting to 1 is ok but the problem occours when you set the machine to allow both sides of the water valve to energize or the one your not using.
Ask for a "hose bib wye" available at most hardware, lumber yard, retailers with a garden suply section, or at the plumbing supply. this is a fitting that will allow you to connect both water hoses to 1 valve. Depending on the amount of room you have you may or may not need a 3rd hose to connect the wye to. (If you need the 3rd hose it will not be like your washer hoses it will have male and female fittings on it. The washer hoses have female only on them on both ends).
