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.

My shower is 6 months old it goes hot and cold whilst on


Newer showers use safety valves to keep people especially children from getting burned they are a single valve with three ports. One ,hot in, cold in, and one port for tub and shower. You need to pull the valve and look for tears in the valve seat.

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.

Hello Stephanie Wells,

Since it is the "new place" that changed...

I would FIRST look to the COLD WATER supply
to make sure cold water INDEED comes out of the
MACHINE END of the hose.

Then move on to the cold water valve...

>> Take PICTURES before disassembly.

Not terribly expensive... Pretty easy to change.
(you may get your NEW PART as differently
connected than your old (PRESS FIT couplings
are replacing the OLD threaded type...
ALERT: PRESS collar in to release tubing)

HELPFUL VIDEOS:
Check these (USA) parts suppliers to
find your specific water valve
(even available through AMAZON)...

Let price/reputation be your guide...
ALL these folks peddle the same parts (opinion)

Sounds like you have an instant hot water system... (no hot water tank) if true, check that fuse.

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.

You can use a water hammer arrestor and hook it up to old washing machine hot valve by use of a standard washer hose. This type of aresstor is basically. a shock absorber. You will needtonget pipe adapters to go from hose thread to pipe thread.If you can mount the hammer arressror higher then the washer valve. Hook everything up and turn old hot water valve back on. This shoulg take care of your problem. Thank you.

Heats up the rapidly decreases within in minutes.


Problem new or old? How long you have unit? Sounds like not enough flow to keep burner on. Tankless need at least .6 gpm to keep hot water flowing or else the burner fires then shuts fires then shuts and you get a sandwich effect...hot cold hot cold. If you have new diverter valve in shower -vs- old two handle type try turning hot water ALL the way ON and see if hot stays hot. If it does stay hot then slowly adjust to cool and see if you maintain a good MIX for proper temp. If it goes cold again try this......LOWER control pad setting to a comfortable 105 degrees (ladies) 100 degrees(men) and turn shower valve all the way to HOT. See if your temp remains consistant now and if it does then problem solved. Tankless mindset...set temp on control pad and stop trying to MIX at shower valve. Thats how these things work. Thats why I install a control pad in each bath and one in the kitchen for adjusting ash temp during dishwasher on time. ditto for wash machine. You should never need to turn on cold water if your unit is set to proper temp at controller. Hope this helps

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)
