Washing Machine. Can not get hot water through

Postby Anita00 » Sun May 13, 2007 8:44 am


I have a qashing machine, 'Service', since i moved to a new property, i cant get any hot water coming through for my hot washes.

the pipes in the property are fine it seems to just be the washing machine

I was told that maybe it couuld be limescale blocking the hot water pipe in the washing machine, but im not sure how to check or even clear this if this was to be the problem

The cold water is fine, and the pressure of hot water around the house is ok too

Would appreciate any suggests

Thanks in advance :wink:

Simply Build It

Disconnect the washing machine hose, and turn on valve, if there's water there the problem is after the valve. Do the same with the nut that connects the hose to the washing machine, same again if water is there the problem will be the eashing machine itself, get an engineer to take a look.
