Washing Machine Not Working After Connecting To Hot Tap

Recommended Posts

My cousin has got Zanussi ZWF 1221 S washer and after moving house the washer pipe wouldnt reach the cold connection i told her to get a longer pipe but one her friends decided after i had gone to connect it to the hot pipe.

It worked for mayb 2 washes but obviously broke and now she wants me to fix it. It comes on and buzzes but no water or spinning and was wondering if you anyone knows what to change first the thermostat or motor/ Any ideas would be great thanks

It's a bad idea to connect to the hot tap as described here - http://www.whitegoodshelp.co.uk/dont-connect-cold-fill-washing-machine-to-hot-tap/

Don't change anything unless you know for sure it has a fault. Check out my article here on how to troubleshoot washing machine not filling with water
