At the back of the washer where the fill hoses from your faucet attach to the washer there should be a marking of an H for hot and C for cold. Test your washer by selecting a hot setting. If water comes out cold on hot setting or hot on cold setting, then just reverse the hoses at faucet.

Some washers require that both water sources are connected. If you are content with cold - water washing only, I would get a Y-hose connector and run both sides of the washer to the cold water line. See picture below for details.

Its not getting hot on a hot wash


Washers don't really heat the water it should be connected to a cold water and a hotter water side if your washer is all the way across the house from the water heater it may take a while for the hot water to get to it but if it is getting water to it on the hot cycle the you have hot water hooked to it. Make sure you have both hoses connected to the right sides. Still no hot water you may have an element going out in your water heater.

Water pouring out of cold water connection the hookup is only connected to the hot water because the steam hookup is suppose work for hot water.... So they say??????!!! Is there suppose to be another hose...


YES YOU NEED TO EITHER PURCHASE A SCREW ON PLUG FOR THE COLD SIDE OR HOOK UP A HOSE FROM A COLD WATER VALVE TO THE COLD SIDE OF YOUR INLET WATER VALVE ON THE WASHER (YOU SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN A HOSE WHEN YOU BOUGHT IT, IF NOT YOU CAN PURCHASE ONE AT YOUR LOCAL HARDWARE STORE OR APPLIANCE PARTS STORE , OR SEARS PARTS DIRECT. LET ME KNOW IF THIS WAS HELPFUL!

Do u have to have hot and cold water hoses connected for machine to work.or will it work with just cold water


Most of the front loading washers and combos have two inlets for hot and cold water which are automatically controlled according to the setting used and hence both the water inlets needs to be connected for the machine to work properly or else the machine may take more time to fill water and there is also a possibility of the machine malfunctioning. However if you don't want to use hot water you may supply cold water to the hot water inlet which will at least make sure that the machine works fine.
In case you have only one faucet for supplying water to the machine you may use a Y-connector which will allow you to connect one hose to one side of the connector and two hoses to the other side of the connector which can then be connected to the two inlets to the machine.

Topload GE washer will not fill with hot water. It seems that the inlet may be plugged. The hot water is turned all the way on, and the hoses (which are new) are both connected. There is only a dribble of...


Where the hoses hook up to the washing machine is the water valve I would suspect that the hot water side of this valve is clogged.
You will need to pull the machine out from the wall disconnecting it from power source and water source. At the connection to the washing machine there is a blue plastic connection where the waterhose connects. On the hot water side there should be a filter screen to catch all debris that may be in the water to prevent it from entering the machine. The screen can be removed with a pair of needled nosed pliers. If there is no screen I would suggest replacing the valve due to any damage that there may be in the valve itself. As you will see the valve isnt that hard to remove and replace. Take model and serial # to an appliance parts house for replacement. around 25 to 30 u.s.d.

Good luck hope this helped you

Cold water will not fill, yes my hoses are right, yes the screens are clean. I switched the hoses and it will fill with cold if the cold hose is on the hot side


The solenoid valve for the cold water has failed. Even though they operate separately, the cold and hot solenoids are usually in the same unit so the entire part that the hoses connect to will have to be replaced.

I have very little water press on the hot water side


Dis-assemble the faucet to get to the valve. The handle comes off and you access the valve from the top, usually by removing a screw on ring.

You will robably find contamination in the hot side of the valve.

You can find instructions on the Moen website.

No hot water


Sounds like the hot side of the input solenoid valve is not operating. Check to see if the wires are firmly connected. If the wires are OK replace the valve unit that the hoses connect to.

Re dishwasher unit / sgs46m78au. water pipe/hose/ connections


The water connection is the smaller of the two and generally near the front of the machine, usually a threaded fitting on a electric solenoid will need a pipe to compression 90 fitting if its not already installed, it needs to be hooked to the hot water and that can be found on the left side going up to the sink faucet to be sure run some hot water and the side that gets warm is the correct one, you will need to turn off the water and install a T to connect the dishwasher if an unused shut off is not already there for the dishwasher. The drain line takes a hose and clamp and will hook into your drain iether through a dishwaser t or the disposal if you have one has a connection for it.
