All Hotpoint washers have heater element regardless of whether they are cold fill only, or hot and cold fill.
if 2 connections at rear, then it is hot and cold fill, if only 1 connection, then it is cold fill only.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Do you know if it's a hot or cold feed at inlet


Hi Charles
The traditional method of supply was using hot water for filling. However, it is possible to save money on some machines by hooking up to cold water as the element in the dishwasher uses less power than your water heater. Unfortunately, some manufacturers still require using hot water for filling. You'll need to check your manual to see if this is the case. Here's a link to This Old House explaining dishwasher installation.
Hope this helps

Bought a hot water heater made by whirlpool for 2 weeks only had enough hot water to fill 1/4 of the tub then the water turned cold . They have replaced the hot water heater and still has same problem....


The down tube in the tank has fallen off or the hot and cold lines are reversed at the tank. I'm going to assume it is gas , if its electric you need to test the heating elements for continuity and temp settings. as well as the down tube in the top of the tank that sends the cold water feed to the bottom of the tank..

Hotpoint aquarius will not heat water


Hi,

Although I do not know your particular machine I strongly suspect that the heater element is malfunctioning/broken. Even if it is a hot and cold fill it still requires the element to heat the water up to the correct temperature for the selected wash. If it is cold fill only it certainly needs the element all of the time- apart from rinses!
Sorry but it depends now on who you have at hand to repair as to your next step.

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.

Cold water fill does it heat to temputure requied?


Hi,

If your washing machine has inlets for both hot and cold water, you should connect both if possible. If you can only connect cold water, the washing machine will still work and heat to the required temperature, but it will need to heat the water in the machine, so the wash cycles will take longer and it will use more energy.

If connecting a hot and cold fill washing machine with cold water only, you will need to connect a Y-Piece for it to work:


belectric_14.jpg
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.

Please post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Is the feed pipe a hot or cold feed?


Connect the dishwasher to the HOT water side. Although most dishwashers have a heating element to heat the water, they are normally installed this way to reduce the amount of time the heating element is on. This not only extends the life of the heating element, but also reduces the amount of electricity required to heat the water. Another helpful hint: Before you run the dishwasher, run the hot water tap until the water runs hot. This will fill the dishwasher with water that is already hot instead of the cold water that normally sits in the line after the hot water has not been run for a while. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Can this machine heat its own water? It has a hot and cold water intake. also mashing machine is not taking the powder from the powder drawer. Can you help?


Yes, this washer does have a heating element.
Make sure there is a good water pressure at the inlet valve/s,
or the powder will not dispense.
Make sure there is no blockage or obstruction in the drawer, \also make sure you have the powader in the correct compartment.
Hope this helps.

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


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.
