I have recently moved house and re-connected the washing machine to hot & cold water pipes. Now it seems to be running very hot when only on a 40 deg C cycle. Why?
Its getting hot.
The red one comes off the pipe that goes to the hot water tap and the blue one comes off the cold wtare tap pipe. Below the connections tot eh washing machine, the "red" pipe is warm and the "blue" pipe is cold so I don't think this is the case. What else could it be?
Blue left and red right (looking at it from the back of the machine) - guess they are the wrong way round???? I have never taken them off at the back of the machine and it didn't get too hot at the previous flat.
Thank you I have switched them around and re-running the rinse cycle which is now taking on cold water. Well done thanks!!! Hopefully when I wash jerseys now they won't come out steaming as they did earlier!!!!
