My simpson eziset750 has a hot and cold feed at the back of the machine. Is the water heated with an element or does it have to be connected with an actual hot water supply?

Yes its fine. Most washers only have a cold feed anyway. But if yours as hot and cold the washer will heat it up

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.

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.

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.

Hot point aquarius 1100 - does this have a heating element for cold water feed ? or does is need direct hot water feed ? (there is a inlet at back for both hot and cold so presume no heating element ?)


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.

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.

Cold water or cold & hot water connection?


If there is only 1 water connection on the back of the machine then it's a cold water supply only and the machine will be fitted with a heater element to heat the water. If it has 2 water connections then you need the hot supply and should ask someone to fit the correct isolation valve on the capped pipe so you can fit the required hose. Most modern machines are cold water only.
