Check the water shut off valves behind your washer. Make sure they are full open (turn counter-clockwise).

Turn the shut off valve off (full clockwise). Disconnect the hose and try running it into a bucket from the valve to make sure you have good water flow.

Check the hose from the shut off valve and make sure it's not kinked stopping water flow.

Turn shut off valve off completely...disconnect hose and look at the end that attaches to the washer. Is the metal screen clogged? Look at the water inlet on the washer where hose attaches and make sure there are no obstructions.

Hi, turn the cold water valve off at the washer. Unscrew the hose to the washer and check the inlet screen for a blockage. It could be plugged with hard water deposits. If its clean, before you reconnect the hose, turn the faucet on with something to catch the water in front of it, just to see if there is water to the faucet.Hopefully the screen was plugged. If you have water pressure and no blockage, then you may have a pump problem.These steps may save you some cash. Best of Luck,

Miele w340 coming up error check drain ..there is no problem with the pump or the pipes as have given the pump a direct feed the pump is good and the water drains out as it should within 60 seconds


Hi dear.
Try out followings see if it helps.(if you know what you are doing.).
1-Unplug machine from power.Remove the fluff filter. Pour some water in to drum and monitor how quickly comes out amount of water poured in to drum. If it's slow there is a blockage between tub to fluff filter hose.
2- There is a non return valve on the machine. When you remove top cover, it's located back LHS. Remove the part but careful not the drop tiny ball inside of it. Check for blockage. Another hose comes from front to middle of LHS panel and joins Y shape attachment. Check that hose also for blockage. Try to blow air in it while keeping fluff filter open. If its blocked, needs properly cleaning.
I hope that helps. Thanks.

Machine leaks water


The most common place for a front load washer to leak is in the bellow. This is the rubber piece right inside the door. Pull the rubber piece back and check for tears or holes. If there are not any holes then there is probably a hole in the hose that runs from the tub to the pump. Sometimes stupid things like bra underwire and bobbi pins get in here and tear them

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.

No water, hot or cold from Triton T90si. Any ideas please?


The Triton t90si is fed from the tank in your attic.This also feeds the cold water in your bathroom.If you still have cold water in the bathroom tap,it means that there is water in the attic tank so the problem is somewhere else.I believe there is a bleed valve on these showers so maybe that is the problem. It may also be that the pipes are clogged up with dirt or limescale.The water filter may need cleaning. Hope this will help with your thinking on the problem.

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

"Faucet" light is on during installation of washer


Check the pipes are not kinked up, and pull the machine away from the wall slightly as the pipes can get trapped.
Also, and I only say this as I have been caught out myslf, run the tap to double check the main water is on.
