My washer only has...

My washer only has a single input hose. I want to attach a Y to the faucets and then to the washer. Can I do this? It is a Bosch Serie 6

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Bosch is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It is a Serie 6, maybe 3 yrs old

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

How do I regulate the water temp after it is hooked up?

Ok..thanks

There is no problem with adding a Y to the faucet, but it won't do anything other than cause warm water to naturally fill the washer because you'll get hot and cold water all the time. If your model only has a single input on the back of the washer, it has a heater built into it to heat the water so that regulates temperature. However, if you add the y to the faucet, there is no way to get cold water---the coldest you can get is the input water which will be a mixture of hot and cold to make "warm" water. These machines with 1 input are typically just connected to cold water because in Europe that is the only hook-up most have, then the water is heated by the washer to the proper temperature later in the cycle.
