Question about Washing Machines

How do I install a second hand waher/dryer with limited piping?

I have a second hand Hoover Performa eco1200 washer dryer. there is an outlet pipe attached but no incoming water hoses. In addition the kitchen sink only has one connection to send water in. Question 1 Are hot & cold inlet pipes all standard, if not, what do I need?

Question 2. Can I buy a Y-piece to connect the appliance hot and cold pipes to a single sink outlet.

Question 3. Will I get both hot & cold water going through the Y-piece?

Question 4. As it is a flat should I assume the outlet pipe on the appliance will have to go into the sink to take any waste away?

1 yes all standard.2 Yes you can get a Y piece. 3 no you will only use water from cold. But you can solve that by going to a good hardware store or B.Q and gettein a self cutting tap for washing machines. You can fit this in just minutes, and do not even need to turn off the water supply. just make sure there is a clean straight piece of pipe to fit it to. 4 yes fit waste pipe to u bend under sink.

Water coming from soap compartment. is there someway to clean the dryer fluff from machine


It sounds like the water outlet is blocked. Same happened to me.
Unplug machine from mains.
Remove panel located on the rear near the base of machine.
In the bottom right corner you will see the outlet pipe and the pump.
Remove grey outlet pipe to get better access.
Undo the large jubilee clip where the black pipe joins the drum outlet.
Inside this pipe is a white plastic cage filter.
Check to see if anything is blocking it.

Will wash but won't spin unless water syphoned off by draining through pipe into low bucket. So, the spin motor is ok, the pipe is not blocked... but the pump..... how can I get to clear out the pump?.......


Check to see if there is a filter located at the bottom front of washer behind plastic trim, if no filter, then remove rear panel of washer, and remove and check pump for blockage or malfunction.
Please rate my so9lution.
Thanks

I have a Hoover dishwasher D820 model,water is now leaking as soon as the machine is switched on. I have examined inlet pipe and renewed washer, no other cracks are in the outlet pipe. All connections are...


with hoover it should have a water pump prior to the start of the outlet pipe. Id remove this and check for blockage, as anything in there that wont allow the motor to turn will force the water out somewhere else once its under pressure.
