Hi. I've just been loaned a Whirlpool awm 5125/4 washing machine (while mines gone for repair), but it has on the back of the machine, a hot inlet and a cold inlet. My machine only requires a cold water feed. Does my loaned Whirlpool require a hot water supply to work, or can i fit both hot and cold pipes with a T-piece to the cold water supply? Very many thanks, Pedro.

Hi,

Your machine can be connected for cold fill only but, you will need to connect a "Y-Piece" for it to work:
Hi. I've just been loaned a Whirlpool awm 5125/4 - belectric_29.jpg
The tail of the "Y" attaches to the cold water valve on your pipework. You then attach both hot and cold water hoses to the branches of the "Y" and connect both hot and cold water hoses to your washing machine. The wash cycles will take longer when connected this way as the machine has to heat the water internally. It will also be less energy effecient.

Please post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

W/machine not filling with water

Also ...The selector switch allows you to choose the wash, rinse and spin settings. When you set the desired program, it sends a signal to the water inlet valve to open the hot and cold water inlets. If the selector switch is not powered or unable to transfer the signal, your washing machine won't fill with water.

I am trying to locate the brushes in my whirlpool awm 5125 washer i have taken the top off but cant locate them

the brushes are on the motor which is located at the rear of the machine sitting just under the wash unit.

You will need a 10mm spanner to remove the bolts holding the motor on. unclip the wiring to the motor and remove.

the carbon brushes are located on the rear of the motor - one on each side of the commutator,

you will need a philips screw driver to remove the brushes
