Melanie, it sounds like you will need to have a plumber come in and seperate your hot and cold pipes. This will be required for proper operation of your washer. Have him install a common hot/cold shut off. The job shouldnt be that difficult to get you up and running.

Hot water not coming into washing machine


The solenoid valve that lets hot water into unit is not opening. Check out the valve itself and the timer cam that feeds power to the cam.

Can i connect to a cold water feed, i do not have a hot feed


I am assuming you can select water temperature on your machine. Simply hook up your pipe to the cold water feed on the machine, and leave the hot water feed alone. Always select cold water on the machine before beginning a load. If it makes you feel better, cap off the hot water inlet on the washing machine.

In a previous house, we had both a hot water feed and a cold water feed. My new house only has cold water feed, can i still use this washing machine?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

In a word- YES!

You will need to purchase, from a hardware (?) store, a 'Y' adapter. Upside down the single end screws into the cold water supply and the hot and cold washer pipes screw into 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)
Good luck,

Does the wma76 hotpoint need a hot water feed? Is a cold water feed enough?


Hi from retired Englishman in France (it's 21:29!),

If your washer has 2 pipes for feeding water then one is for hot and the other is for cold naturally.
All washing machines have a water heating element in them- in case any hot water supply is not hot enough for its wash.
If you only have a cold tap you will need to purchase a 'Y' connector. This screws onto the cold tap supply (single end) and the hot and cold feed pipes connected to the washer screw onto the other two ends. The machine will now be fooled into thinking it has two separate feeds!
The machine opens the valve for the 'hot' water supply (which of course is cold) and the heats it up to the required temperature for the wash cycle. Afterwards, when the machine requires cold water for rinsing, it opens up the 'cold' supply (which is the same supply as for the hot water!) and is happy.

Hope this answers your question.

Hot water fills very slow(30 MIN OR MORE TO FILL) good water flow from spicket to washer, screens are clear. sewems to be something with the washer its self


Might be a bad inlet valve. To confirm, swap the hot and cold hoses to your washer so that the cold water feeds the hot water connection and the hot water feeds the cold water connection. Turn off both hot and cold water faucets. Set the washer for a warm water wash. Turn on the cold water faucet, and check the flow. Then turn off the cold water faucet, and turn on the hot water faucet and check the flow. If the cold water flow fill slowly, then the problem is with the inlet valve.

It an easy part to obtain from an appliance supply house. To install disconnect the hoses to the back of the machine, and remove the back panel to get access to the valve. Should only take a couple of minutes to remove and install. Hope this helps you.

Im instaling a 2 yr old zanussi aqua 1000,it has a hot and cold feed,there is just a cold feed at the house


http://www.4ourhouse.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=213690&brand=&model=&part=y-piece&style=washerhelp

Washing machine is a hot and cold fill, but I only have a cold water supply You can use a Y Piece connector (external link 4Washerhelp spares) to connect the hot and cold fill hoses to a single cold water supply. 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 be able to buy this part also from a DIY store like B&Q)
