Cold Fill Washing Machine Does Not Get Hot


Do y7ou have 2 hoses at the back of the machine one for cold water and one connected to the hot water tap of the house. If not then you have a cold water in only. If you have 2 hoses have you connected the hoses into the machine correctly Have you checked to see if your machine has a heating element under the bowl for heating the water. As an appliance shop to verify if you have by the model number of the machine. otherwise you have a cold washing machine and unless you can plumb hot water to it that is all you will have.

Installing a Miele WS5425 cold water fill only?


if you only want cold water for washing, just select cold wash in the program settings and turn off the hot water tap
so the settings you will be looking at are --like --
tub fill ---low water medium water or high water
water temp cold or hot
rinse hot or cold , wash setting --heavy , delicates , whites , woollens etc
may not be exactly worded like that but you get the idea
when ever you see wash temp or water temp , select-- cold

I need to wash the colors in cold water ONLY but when I set the washer on cold, it still washes clothes with warm/hot water for part of the cycle, causing the colors to bleed. How do I need to set it up...


G'day, simple solutions is to swop your hoses at the back around, you can do this at the taps... If you only have one hose going into machine, you need to make sure the hose is on the cold water. Some new machines heat water internally, hence they don't need hot water going in at all. Sounds like you are putting hot water only into your machine. If you only have a hot water tap in your laundry for washing machine, this cold be a problem as the machines don't cool down the water. If this is the case you might have to look at other plumbing solutions... Hope this helps, let us know how u get on

When washing machine goes to rinse cycle, water barely comes in


I am going to guess you run a warm wash, and cold rinse. This sounds like the screen on the cold water inlet is clogged. Shut the water off and remove the hose at the back of the machine. Look in the water inlet and see if the screen is clogged. If so, carefully scrape it as clean as you can. Use a straw and blow into it to help clear it out. Replace the hose and try it. It does not need to be perfectly clean, but at least half way opened will suffice.

I've just moved house and my machine is not


Hello Friend, I think your machine will work properly if you add a water line splitter. You would connect to the single cold water tap and on the other end you would have two water hoses . Connect one hose to the cold water inlet of your washer and then connect the other hose to the hot water inlet. You can get these at Home Depot. Happy to help, Tim.

washer may not be detecting water temp but water flow ..if you never use hot water may try hooking cold water to a Y-connector and then hooking to both hot and cold inlet valves ..however it is also possible washer is detecting inlet temps in which case you're out of luck ..i suspect the latter
