Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WMA42 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have been given a five year old Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 front loading washing machine, with hot and cold water feed pipes connected to the rear. However, the plumbing in my flat currently only allows for a cold water feed as the hot water supply pipe has been sealed off. Is there a way of converting the washing machine to being purely cold water fed? This would save me a fortune in altering the plumbing and on immersion heating costs!

You will need to use a Y-piece on the cold water valve, any hardware store will have them

  • I have been given a - 9k=
Then simply run 2 hoses to the machine from the 1 valve.

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.

I have been delivered a Aquiras Extra WMA 40 but I only have a cold pipe but I notice the machine has a hot and cold pipes do I connect to just the cold pipe and will the machine heat the water inside


No, the machine does not have a heater unless it has a sanitizing cycle which heats already hot water even hotter.

For the machine to work as advertised, you'll need hot and cold water connections. However, if you just hookup the cold water and run the machine on its cold-water setting it will wash -- the laundry may not be as clean as you would like in some cases, but the machine will operate properly.

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.

You cant seal off the inlet, but you can get a Y adapter, its a hose that splits into 2 outlets. They are most often used to hook up steam dryers but will work for wha you need, this will allow you to use it but it will not get the best cleaning results

Inlet hose leaking a top branch


There are 2 versions of the Hotpoint WD640, a cold fill only version, and a hot and cold fill version..
From your question, I conclude you have the hot and cold fill version, which requires a hot and cold fill supply..
I do not understand what you mean by leaking from top banch, perhaps you can clarify.

Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Washing machine


This is a Hot and Cold fill m/c.
You obviously have the hot water supply connected to the cold in let valve..
at the rear they are marked H and C .
Make sure the cold water is connected to C,and the hot to H.
Plz rate my solution. Thanks.

Hotpoint Aquarius WF100


Firstly, there should be only one hose, always connected to the cold supply.
The unit will heat the water to the setting you choose for the wash (40 - 60 - etc)

Secondly, if the unit is leaking water, try turning down the cold pressure, this will slow the supply pressure to the unit and prevent spray out from the detergent drawer.

Your supply tap should have an isloting tap on it, adjust this until it sullpies water at an acceptable rate.
Do this by feeding the hose into a bucket/basin and tweak it until it pours out - not sprays out.
This should alleviate any leaks around the machine.

Hope this helps.
