Wma56-not heating water

The machine was working perfectly, it had been removed, stored in a garage for a few months and then reconnected and now it does not heat the water. can it be as simple as a connection problem?

If the machine was moved incorrectly, ie. the shipping/transit bolts were not refitted then most likly the cabling/contacts of the element were damaged if not the element itself. The element can usually be accessed from the back of the machine an is normally in the lower area of the drum. A quick visual inspection may identify a broken component, if it does not remove the element usually only held in with one or two screws, just make sure that the seal is intact and in good condition when refitting,

Hope this helps, thanks for using Fixya.

I cleaned my water cooler with vinegar but the water still taste bad. What can i do ?


it it is a plumbed in unit running off utility water supply, there is a small ceramic water filter assembly that can be fitted into the water inlet side of the unit
because it is extremely fine it removes the contaminates that make the taste if that doesn't work you can fit in tandem a charcoal filter after that ceramic to guarantee perfectly clean tasteless water
add to the fact that every 12 months ( depending on volume usage) the ceramic filter can be removed and the contaminates scraped off the surface using a knife which regenerates the filter
if it is bottle feed then clean out the holding tank using bleach, wash thoroughly and allow water to run from both taps for a few minutes to remove all residue bleach , the fit new water bottle
spare bottles are subject to algae growth ( taste ) if stored in a well lit area so store spare bottles in a dark room ( closet , under bench etc )

WILL WASHING MACHINE WORK WITH ONLY A COLD WATER SUPPLY


Yes, any machine should work with just a cold water supply. The internal heating element will bring water up to the required temperature.

Most machines sold today have only cold water fill, as that is better for removing stains - putting hot water onto a stain will set it rather than remove it.

Wahing machine washes but will not spin Hotpoint auquarius extra wm836 cant find filter


Power off the mains. The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. Drain out all the water. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. Inside is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out thoroughly. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip. Check out the pump too before reconnecting.

Ord galaxy 1998 tdi 110 radiator over heating but


you need to flush the radiator out.
With the engine cold, remove coolant bottle cap to release pressure.
Drain engine coolant from drain plug on radiator.
With the drain plug removed disconnect the highest hose connected to a radiator.
use an hosepipe and put it in place of the disconnected radiator pipe.
turn on the water to the hose pipe and let it flush out any sludge accumulated in the radiator. after a few minutes turn off water supply, reconnect radiator hose and drain plug and refil using recommended coolant mix for your galaxy (purchased at most autofactors and garages).
Also check your thermostat as if this is faulty it would stop the flow of coolant running around your engine.

hope this helps

How two start a mini cooper one after two years?


Change the oil and oil filter. Make sure you allow plenty of time for all of the old oil to drain.

Drain the gas tank, flush the fuel lines, or you could just add some Water Remover and Antifreeze to your fuel system to absorb any built up condensation and fill up with fresh gas.

Check Radiator fluid, if it's discolored drain and replace .

Make sure your tires have air to the appropriate pressure. Drive slowly for the first few miles until the tires heat up and any flat spots work out.

If you have taken your battery out prior to storage, reconnect the battery. If the battery was left in the car, and you have had it stored for more than a year, you will need to replace the battery.

Remove the spark plugs. If your car has been sitting in storage for over 3 months, with the spark plugs removed, add a little Marvel Mystery Oil to help lubricate the cylinders.

With the spark plugs still out, turn the engine over a few times to get the oil working through the car. Keep cranking the engine until the oil pressure reads normal and the oil pressure light has gone off.

Replace the spark plugs and their leads in the correct order.

Start the car and let it idle and warm up for a few minutes.

Take the car for a short 10 to 20 mile trip, note of any odd sounds. When the car is back in the garage, look for any leaks and check all fluid levels again.

Hotpoint aquarius wma56


probably due to not draining.
there is a filter in the system which you need to remove and clean. possible also that you have a foreign object jamming the pump.
take the back panel at the bottom of the machine off.
you will see a large diameter hose going from the bottom of the tub to the pump.remove this hose at the tub end. lots of water will come out so make sure none goes on the motor. the filter is inside this hose. take out and clean
let me know if this doesn't work
