The best way to stop your situation is to connect the hot hose to the hot tap. A hardware store should have a female cap you can screw onto the back of the machine, or get a male plug, same thread as a tap and plug the end of the hot hose. Elevating the end of the hot hose may help..It's normal for water to flow out the hose as you've described...Good luck...Nomess

First the is a hot and cold water pipe. To those are connected hot and cold water outlet bib valves to which are connected, respectively, hot and cold water hoses going to (or you could say, coming from) their respective connections to the washer. Correct this if I am wrong but, it appears you might be talking about those hose connections to the water spigots but calling them pipes, not hoses. If that is true, you contecture is correct: it is most typically a worn out hose washer or o-ring and replacing that item should correct any dripping. By sure the part is characterized for hot water.
There are multiple possibilities:
- the power to the main control could be off (seems unlikely if you can turn the water flow on and off)
- the thermal element that heats the water could be burned out (may not be a problem if this is only a mixer unit and relies on external hot water supply)
- there could be a problem with the solenoid that opens to allow hot water to flow through the unit
- there could be either no hot water getting to the unit or blockage so that hot water will not flow through to the mixer
Start by making sure there is power. Then you may need to disconnect the hot water supply (after turning it off at the source) and then check to see that hot water will flow. If you get hot water to the unit then there is something internal keeping the hot water from mixing with the cold.
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.
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.
for the instruction manual... you can "googe" search online for it...type your brand name in the search window with "support" and you'll most likely find the factory website with manual downloads. For the water issue: most washers are designed to connect to a hot and cold water supply. If yours is a one water pipe connection, and you're ok with cold water washes, I'd recommend supplying water to both the hot and cold connections of the washer, so you don't have any mishaps by hitting the wrong wash cycle and not getting any water. You could purchase a simple hose bib splitter fo accomplish this. If however, you want hot water, sounds like a plumbing job to bring hot water to the washer's location. It won't hurt the machine to run cold water to both sides...you just won't get the hot water cleaning benefit.
There is too much pressure on the cold feed, reduce the pressure on the cold by partly closing off the tap on the cold.
Or ensure the hot feed is fully open and not blocked, check if there are filters inline - remove the feed pipes at the washer end and look into the inlet valves - clear if blocked.
The inlet valve is common to hot and cold water with only a small pipe to fill the machine, the cold water is being forced back up the hot water pipe due to the pressure you can feel the pipe cool down after running hot then go to warm, if hot water is flowing the pipe will stay hot, if not then cold is going up the hot pipe.
hi is this hot and cold water piped machine? ie two connections on rear of machine for hot and cold pipes ? if so are your pipes connected properly on machine and the water supplies? if cold supply is connected to hot supply then wash inlet allows water in washer then washes in cold? but when rinse is due? the elec valve that has hot water pipe connected?? is failing to open allowing water flow of hot on rinse so advise recheck pipes for flow of water from both? when disconnected from machine if flow ok then possible valve blocked/faulty hope you can understand above? if you can give more info on your machine it would help to offer a remedy?
