Bosch washing machine

Bosch WFF 1401, Only fills with tiny ammount of water when temperature set above 30deg... Water supply Hot and cold OK to machine and all electric water inlet valves operate (for a short time) to let it fill. My guess is the programmer uses level or temperature sensor to control the fill with Hot/cold... but is the fault with the programmer or sensors ? how can I diagnose.

Re: Bosch washing machine

With no clothes in the washer start a program. The washe level is below the door glass. the rinse level comes up 3 cm on the glass. The washer is designed to be water efficent. If you are not getting water this high, look at the pressure switch hose, maybe it is restricted and causing the pressure to be held in the washer.

Which is hot & cold inlet connection

If you want to connect up a washing machine that uses hot and cold water but you only have a cold water supply (such as in a basement or garage) you can use a Y Piece connector to connect the hot and cold fill hoses to a single cold water supply (external link to 4Washerhelp spares).
The washing machine will then work OK. Simply screw the Y-Piece onto the tap, and then screw the hot and cold fill hoses to the Y-piece and connect the other end of the fill hoses to the washing machine. (You may also be able to buy this part from a DIY store like B&Q)
If you don't connect a water supply to the hot valve (and simply connect the cold water hose to the cold valve leaving the hot valve with nothing connected to it) then some wash programs may not work as some programmes only fill with hot water. However, some washing machines will work OK with only the cold fill hose connected. You can always try it and see. The worse that will happen is the washer could either stick on the odd wash programme or may abort on some. If you do this though it's possible for water to drip out of the hot valve on some machines during fill. It's best to use a y-piece if possible.
The fact that you have connected cold water to the hot valve is irrelevant, the washing machine will not know any different and will just heat the water up to the correct temperature. The washing machine may use slightly more electricity but if it's less than 10 years old it shouldn't be significant unless you use a lot of 60 or 90 degree washes. On 40 degree washes, manufacturers argue it's more efficient to fill with cold water only and slowly heat up the water to 40 degrees.

Can i use just cold water fill for my bosch precision wfg 2020

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Yes! You will need to purchase a 'Y' piece which is used upside down - the single end is screwed onto the water supply tap and each of the hot and cold water feeds to the machine screw onto each of the double lower 'arms'. The machine opens its 'hot' water valve, receives just the single supply cold water and then has to heat it to the correct temperature. When it wants cold water- for rinses- it opens its cold water valve ..........and gets the same water supply as the hot valve!
'Y' pieces are normally obtained from local hardware stores - certainly in the UK and France!
Good luck,
John C

I have a top loading Kenmore Washing Machine. I don´t have the excat model but looks like a KENMORE HEAVY DUTY SERIES 70 AUTOMATIC WASHER, MODEL # 110.92273100. The problem presents after finishing...

You may have 2 defective parts.
First,make sure the hot and cold water hoses are connected correctly and both turned on.
If the water fill problem is the same,the water temp switch is bad.
The not filling after the wash cycle could be a bad lid switch.
Set the machine for SPIN and turn it on.
If it does not spin,replace the lid switch.

Yes, any machine should work with just a cold water supply. The internal heating element will bring water up to the required temperature.

Most machines sold today have only cold water fill, as that is better for removing stains - putting hot water onto a stain will set it rather than remove it.

Bosch wff 1401 not emptying water therfor not able to spin the pump goes round but water does not empty if i drain the water the machine will spin

If you have not already done so, then check and clean filter located at bottom front right of washer behind drop down cover.
If it still does not empty, then it is either blocked between the pump and tge waste outlet, or the pump itself could be faulty.

Cant connect the water hoses the machine

Cold fill only , designed to run efficiently on lower temperatures and with cold water powders

Blank off the hot supply line at the back of your washer before you fit it back to the wall.

Only two pipes on the machine Cold In, Waste out

Error code

hi sir one of these problem will be there 1 - No cold fill. Check that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked. 
2 - No hot fill.The ambient temperature is likely to be below freezing possibly due to the pipes being frozen. Also check that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked. 
3 - No mixed fill. It is likely that the water is not turned on at the taps. 
4 - Check the water supply, inlet valve and hot and cold hose connections. 
4 - A fault with the water heating has occurred. 
5 - Water is not being pumped out and a flood condition could occur. Check that the drainage hose is raised to the recommended minimum height and that the pipe is not blocked. 
6 - Extremely high water level Disconnect or turn off the water supply and ensure that the water level does not rise any more. Then book a service engineer. 
7 - Door not closed properly. Close door firmly at the 3 o'clock position. 
E20/1 - The thermistor resistance has drifted or the temperature scanning sequence is incorrect. The ambient temperature could be below freezing. 
thank u............
