Hot water flows into cold water inlet
Hi all, I have a Simpson SWT704 (7.5kg Eziset toploader). Recently the washing machine started to fill only with hot water, even when on a cold wash. I've switched over the water pipes (i.e. cold tap to hot water inlet and turned off the hot tap) to the inlet valve so that it now fills with cold water. It works fine otherwise.
I assume this to be a faulty inlet valve however before I call out a technician, is there anything else it may be? I'm cautious because the machine is five years old and I may be better off buying a new machine rather than paying someone to find a major fault.
Is this a good question?
