Check the water inlet valve. Unplug the machine, turn off the water, and remove the supply hoses. Check the small metal screens inside the openings on the water inlet valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. (Especially the cold water side) Check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter and testing continuity. A lack of continuity will mean a bad solenoid. I'll attach a photo for reference. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

U can 1st check your incoming water. turn water supply valve off behind washer. disconnect cold water, look at the screens at the washing machine valve. thats the plastic piece that u just removed the hose off of. take screen out and clean the screen, if they are dirty then that may be your problem if clean id say your water valve is bad.part roughly 39.99-69.99 labor 75-125.00 depending on who u use and were u r located. thats of course as long as water is coming to the washer, we do find at times a plumbing issue at house valve behind washer or a kincked hose. please check all this before u call for service. hope this works.

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.

Can i connect to a cold water feed, i do not have a hot feed


I am assuming you can select water temperature on your machine. Simply hook up your pipe to the cold water feed on the machine, and leave the hot water feed alone. Always select cold water on the machine before beginning a load. If it makes you feel better, cap off the hot water inlet on the washing machine.

In a previous house, we had both a hot water feed and a cold water feed. My new house only has cold water feed, can i still use this washing machine?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

In a word- YES!

You will need to purchase, from a hardware (?) store, a 'Y' adapter. Upside down the single end screws into the cold water supply and the hot and cold washer pipes screw into the double end. The washer is fooled into thinking it has hot and cold! When it expects hot, it opens its hot valve but instead gets the cold water and has to heat it up. It will therefore take longer for the machine to do the washing. When it wants cold for rinses, it opens its cold valve and gets the same water! Simple ;-0)
Good luck,

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.

Can the washing machine run on cold water feed only and if so is there a special connection or do we just connect the cold feed only


you can use a cold feed on washes below 50 degrees
if you need to connect a feed to the hot water inlet on the machine you can buy a y shaped connector to join both pipes together from the machine and then connect the one remaining connection to the water supply valve

Why is my warm water is cold? The hot is hot and cold is cold but warm is cold.


There is too much pressure on the cold feed, reduce the pressure on the cold by partly closing off the tap on the cold.
Or ensure the hot feed is fully open and not blocked, check if there are filters inline - remove the feed pipes at the washer end and look into the inlet valves - clear if blocked.
The inlet valve is common to hot and cold water with only a small pipe to fill the machine, the cold water is being forced back up the hot water pipe due to the pressure you can feel the pipe cool down after running hot then go to warm, if hot water is flowing the pipe will stay hot, if not then cold is going up the hot pipe.
