It could be a defective fill valve or the cold water supply could be turned off.

if your only seeing one water feed into the machine then there is a second one missing. the washer should be connected to a hot and cold feed not just one. youve got to find the second feed (cold) if there is one and connect to it as well.

In a previous house, we had both a hot water feed and a cold water feed. My new house only has cold water feed, can i still use this washing machine?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

In a word- YES!

You will need to purchase, from a hardware (?) store, a 'Y' adapter. Upside down the single end screws into the cold water supply and the hot and cold washer pipes screw into the double end. The washer is fooled into thinking it has hot and cold! When it expects hot, it opens its hot valve but instead gets the cold water and has to heat it up. It will therefore take longer for the machine to do the washing. When it wants cold for rinses, it opens its cold valve and gets the same water! Simple ;-0)
Good luck,

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 water fills very slow(30 MIN OR MORE TO FILL) good water flow from spicket to washer, screens are clear. sewems to be something with the washer its self


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.

The screen on my coldwater feed keeps rusting up


No, don't poke it through. It will clog elsewhere. Clean the intake screen completely. Buy a $3.00 in hose screened washer. Put it in the hose end connected to your taps. The reason cold clogs and not hot is that the rust settles in the bottom of the hot water tank and doesn't get pushed thru the lines. The cold water is a direct feed. Clean the newly installed screen monthly as your supply taps are way more convenient than the connections to the water inlet vavle at the back of the machine.

Washer fills back up with water


sounds like a valve is not shutting off if you have two feeds it should be easy to find which one either the water will be hot or cold quite easy to change have to take lid off look on search engine for valves for your make and model should be very reasonable price.

Why is my warm water is cold? The hot is hot and cold is cold but warm is cold.


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.

Does the machine heat up the water


If you have only a cold water feed then all of the washing will be in cold water. Dishwashers heat up the water, but clothes washers do not.
