Hi,

Connect the hot water fill hose to the water valve marked with a H Best Twin Barrels. And the cold hose to the water valve marked with a C.
If the machine has a dual water inlet (two pipes red and grey) then it fills from the central heating system and if the correct temp is reached it shuts off and no further heating is necessary.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

DOES MY WIXL143S INDESIT USE HOT OR COLD MAINS


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

That's easy to tell- if it has 2 inlet pipe/hose connections at the back (as opposed to the outlet pipe which is permanently connected to the washer and hooks over the outlet drain) then it is a hot and cold fill. If there is only one inlet pipe it is cold fill only. Either type HAS to have a cold fill supply- to lower the temperature of the hot water for cool washes AND for rinsing which is normally cold water only.

If you have only a cold water tap/fawcet available for the washer and it is a hot and cold fill you will need to purchase, from a hardware (?) store, a 'Y' adapter. Upside down the single end (internal thread) screws into the cold water supply and the hot and cold washer pipes screw into the double end (external threads). 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)

Hope this has clarified!

There is water flowing to the washing machine then straight out down the waste pipe, there is also a noise whilst it does this like a pump? This is when the machine is turned off. It is an indesit machine.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This sounds to me like it is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Does the Indesit model No W113 have to have hot and cold water intake or can I blank off the hot water intake?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
In two words- NO and NO! No, you need it to be cold fill only (presumably) and No, you do not need to blank off the hot water intake.
You will need to purchase, from a hardware (?) store, a 'Y' adapter. Upside down the single end screws onto the cold water supply and the hot and cold was pipes from the washer screw onto 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)

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.

Cold water fill does it heat to temputure requied?


Hi,

If your washing machine has inlets for both hot and cold water, you should connect both if possible. If you can only connect cold water, the washing machine will still work and heat to the required temperature, but it will need to heat the water in the machine, so the wash cycles will take longer and it will use more energy.

If connecting a hot and cold fill washing machine with cold water only, you will need to connect a Y-Piece for it to work:

The tail of the "Y" attaches to the cold water valve on your pipework. You then attach both hot and cold water hoses to the branches of the "Y" and connect both hot and cold water hoses to your washing machine.

Please post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Indesit washing machine won't fill or water flowing very slow, how do i locate and clean the filter?


These are screens located inside the hoses. You'll have to turn off the water and remove the two hoses. I suggest removing both ends. Make sure you mark them as to hot and cold or top and bottom. You should see a small screen inside the hoses. remove them and wash the under a sink spigot to remove dirt. If really corroded or dirty you can get new ones just like you use in a garden hose.

Hot/cold feed


you can have just cold but you will need to have both hoses, (presuming it's hot and cold fed washer), connected to the water otherwise the machine will be waiting for the water to flow that isn't there. you can buy 'y-shaped' adaptors for this purpose.
the water is heated inside the machine to correct temp anyway.

Indesit washer dryer 'omega 1200' WDG1295W won't drain!


Sounds like the pump is possibly faulty, or there is a blockage
There should be a removable plastic cover at the bottom front of the m/c, behind this you will see a round plastic cover.
This is the pump filter, unscreit and unblock it if it is full of ****!!!
Hopefully this should solve your problem.
Please leave feedback.
