I have a Tricity Bendix Washer 800 (AW851). Could there be a problem
with this machine - all the clothes are extremely hot after a wash
cycle. Even if I put a cold hand wash in to spin the clothes come out
very hot - probably destroy any delicate wools - has anyone else come
across this problem?
Thanks for any input.
I would agree with the hot and cold pipes being on wrong, the only
other alternative being a faulty cold valve, or even the cold tap
being turned off, which in theory, and on a delicate cycle, could
cause this problem, but highly unlikely.
Thanks for your suggestions. I'll certainly get the pipes checked
However, the problem seems to be stemming from the spin cycle. When I
put hand washed cold clothing into the machine for a "spin only" they
come out really hot. I'm wondering how this could happen with only a
Are you sure that when you ask it for a spin only that you are not
getting the final rinse and a spin?
As an experiment, spin somthing that is already dry. If it comes out
completely dry and hot then there is some cause for concern. If it comes
out hot and damp then I suspect the previous suggestions of hot/cold
feed swap are likely to be the cause.
Checking and then swapping if needed, should only need the machine to be
slid out of it's housing. No need to call in a repair person. if you are
not sure which of your supply pipes is the hot one, get the machine to
do a hot wash fill for a few mins, turn off the power and see which tap
is hot. Follow this hose to the machine and see which inlet it is
fitted to. Hot inlet and hose normally coloured red and cold coded blue.
