For the instruction manual... you can "googe" search online for it...type your brand name in the search window with "support" and you'll most likely find the factory website with manual downloads.
For the water issue: most washers are designed to connect to a hot and cold water supply. If yours is a one water pipe connection, and you're ok with cold water washes, I'd recommend supplying water to both the hot and cold connections of the washer, so you don't have any mishaps by hitting the wrong wash cycle and not getting any water. You could purchase a simple hose bib splitter fo accomplish this.
If however, you want hot water, sounds like a plumbing job to bring hot water to the washer's location.
It won't hurt the machine to run cold water to both sides...you just won't get the hot water cleaning benefit.

Why is the hot water pipe dripping after tighening up.


First the is a hot and cold water pipe. To those are connected hot and cold water outlet bib valves to which are connected, respectively, hot and cold water hoses going to (or you could say, coming from) their respective connections to the washer. Correct this if I am wrong but, it appears you might be talking about those hose connections to the water spigots but calling them pipes, not hoses. If that is true, you contecture is correct: it is most typically a worn out hose washer or o-ring and replacing that item should correct any dripping. By sure the part is characterized for hot water.

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

We just bought a new bosch dishwasher (smu50e15au). Its easy to connect to water and power, but how do we mount it to the kitchen? Instructions are in German! Thanks, Suzanne


Hello Suzanne,

Bosch installation instructions are usually multi-language. They may appear to be in German, but on closer inspection, you should notice they are written in English below the German instructions.

However, just in case you do have German only installation instructions, you can download the multi-language version by clicking on the link below. These may look to be in German on first glance, but I promise the English version is there as well.

Hopefully, you will now be able to install your dishwasher correctly. If you need further assistance, I'm happy to explain any part of the instructions (in German or English), but you're going to have to explain what "mount it to the kitchen" means. I'm afraid that makes no sense to me at all ;)

Regards,
BElectric

I have been delivered a Aquiras Extra WMA 40 but I only have a cold pipe but I notice the machine has a hot and cold pipes do I connect to just the cold pipe and will the machine heat the water inside


No, the machine does not have a heater unless it has a sanitizing cycle which heats already hot water even hotter.

For the machine to work as advertised, you'll need hot and cold water connections. However, if you just hookup the cold water and run the machine on its cold-water setting it will wash -- the laundry may not be as clean as you would like in some cases, but the machine will operate properly.

Re dishwasher unit / sgs46m78au. water pipe/hose/ connections


The water connection is the smaller of the two and generally near the front of the machine, usually a threaded fitting on a electric solenoid will need a pipe to compression 90 fitting if its not already installed, it needs to be hooked to the hot water and that can be found on the left side going up to the sink faucet to be sure run some hot water and the side that gets warm is the correct one, you will need to turn off the water and install a T to connect the dishwasher if an unused shut off is not already there for the dishwasher. The drain line takes a hose and clamp and will hook into your drain iether through a dishwaser t or the disposal if you have one has a connection for it.
