    Hi quinton , I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? You posted this to the Vehicle Care category - is it actually a household issue? Is this only at a single tap or the entire house?

It sounds like a hot water heater issue. At the top of the heater, there are two pipes - one brings in cold water; the other sends hot water to the house. Some heaters have a valve on one of those pipes. The valve would be controlled by a large handle that either points straight out from the pipe or points in the same direction of the water pipe. If points straight out, that means it is off. Pull the handle so it is pointing the same direction as the pipe. Note: handle only moves one direction and can be hard to move. If won't move one way, try the other.

Washer don't get the cold water only the hot cold water won't enter and the hot enter extremelly hot


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(this covers both hot and cold but please read for cold! Your hot water supply provides the extremely hot water and is normally mixed with cold in the washer for the correct temperature.)

If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call and a check that it isn't the control PCB ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

Servis model M3905W does it matter if the hot and cold water are connected up the right way round and if so what isthe right way round?! Thanks


Makes a big difference. Cold water valve is is normally marked blue or simply cold water. connected to cold water tap. Hot water marked with red colour or simply hot and connected to hot water tap.(Red hose - Hot water. Blue hose- cold water.).

Cold water runs hot even when hot water valve is turned off.


check to see if the cold tap is connected to the cold valve on the machine and the hot tap to the hot valve. on the machine it will have cold or c for the cold valve and hot or h for the hot valve. please reply if you need further help.

Hot water taps and showers pressure very low cold taps ok


there is a little cap on the hot and cold side above the shut off valves, turn the water off at these valve and take the caps off there are filters in there clean them off and reinstall them that should take care of the problem, you might want to flush the tank while your at it hook a hose to the hot side connector and run it out side or to a sump pump then turn on the cold water and flush it out you can also reverse this procedure by doing it on the cold side

HOT WATER WON'T FILL TUB


most inlet water hoses have screens in them.  You could remove the hose from the back of the washer and see if there is water flow.   If there isn't, the hot water valve assembly is defective.  These are solenoid operated valves that admit water into the tub.  They can be accessed behind the washer after you remove the back.

Cold water tap not working, house heating not as strong.


Okay let's trouble shoot this problem. The Hot water issue may just be that your Temp. control is not set as high as it was before it was replaced. Find the control on the water heater and check the setting. You can adjust it hotter from there, but it is not recomended to set it all the way to HOT. Just increase it at small adjustments and see if the water gets hotter. The Cold Water Tap issue.....Turn off the Cold and Hot water supply lines to the faucet. Remove the Cold water tap. VERY SLOWLY TURN ON THE COLD WATER SUPPLY and see if you get water coming out of the line. If you get water, then your line is okay. Inspect the valve to see if there is any debris in or on it. Clean and reinstall both taps and turn back on the water. It should work. Now if you turn the water on SLOWLY when the Cold water tap is removed, and no water comes out, Then you know you have an issue with the line going to the cold water side. (Frozen Line, Debris in supply line valve, Broken or Leaking Water Line) I hope this assists you........Joe

washer may not be detecting water temp but water flow ..if you never use hot water may try hooking cold water to a Y-connector and then hooking to both hot and cold inlet valves ..however it is also possible washer is detecting inlet temps in which case you're out of luck ..i suspect the latter
