Solar heated water 38°C

Why then does the Manual of my Lavamat say that I can not use hot water?
What is the hotest water I can feed the Lavamat with?

Thanks for trying to help

can't see any reason why you can't use solar heated water as long as the pressure is sufficient for the machine. this is important

Where is the filter for die AEG lavamat 538 washing machine and how do you clean it?


Hello,

The only filter/screen I am familiar with is the one in the hoses the supply hot and cold water to your machine. They should be checked once in a while but I have never found much in them.

However, the manual for your machine is located here:
AEG OKO LAVAMAT 538 Operating Instructions Manual

Best wishes,
Joe

Does the hotpoint need hot water to feed it or does it heat its own water i.e has a cold water feed


Hi,

If it has 2 water inputs one is for hot (normally marked with RED) and the other for cold (sometimes no colour, sometimes plain white) .
If it has one input it is for cold.
In BOTH cases the washer will have a heater, in case the hot water supply is not hot enough and for heating the cold ;-0)

Hope this answers your question,

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 point aquarius 1100 - does this have a heating element for cold water feed ? or does is need direct hot water feed ? (there is a inlet at back for both hot and cold so presume no heating element ?)


All Hotpoint washers have heater element regardless of whether they are cold fill only, or hot and cold fill.
if 2 connections at rear, then it is hot and cold fill, if only 1 connection, then it is cold fill only.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Can I use hot water supply only on my AEG Lavamat W 1159?


A valid point but unfortunately your machine is programmed to take both and will register this as a fault.
This is probably not what you wanted to hear but please dont shoot the messenger.

Yes. There is a part that allows you to connect the cold water supply to both the hot and cold inlet hoses. It has worked successfully on our 6100 for 8 years or so. I think it was part of the original kit rather than a subsequent purchase - it's a Y-shaped yoke with an inlet connection and two outlets that accept the two hoses feeding the inlets of the machine. From memory i tink the situation is mentioned in the user manual somewhere.
