Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Couldnt find if this needs hot or cold water supply. Steve


Answers :

The unit should be hooked up to the hot side of the supply. A lot of dishwashers have heaters, but using hot water saves them the time to heat the water to the prescribed temperature, around 140 degrees. The following website discusses this:

I need an installation/user guide for a Comenda C95Z commercial dishwasher. Electrician needs to know if it can run on single phase (it came with a 3 phase lead). There are hot and cold water hoses - plumber isn't sure what the cold is for as it doesnt have a connector attached. Is there anywhere I can download the manual?

I have bought a diesel pressure wash but it only runs on cold. i have been told it needs a fuel pump to run on hot water. how would i fit one of these?

Dishwasher I have a whirlpool dishwasher that does not appear to be getting hot water. The washer water is cold initially and only seems to get warm once the heater in the base of the machine heats it. The hot water supply line does not get hot so I presume no water is being supplied. Is the water supposed to be hot at the start. If yes could this be caused be a faulty inlet valve and if so how can I check. The dishes are dirty especially on the top rack. Thanks for your help.

Gendos is on track with his question. I have the same dishwasher and it doesn't get enough hot water to clean the dishes and runs for hours because the heating element wasn't designed to heat water, just maintain it. The only solution we have found ... Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

It went thru the whole cycle and when I opened it up - there was water still left in the bottom - hit the cancel/drain button and nothing happened. Unhooked the drain line to the drain pipe under the sink and no water came out. How do I find out if it is the pump ? If I take it out - what do I need to look for and what trouble shoot things do I need to know. I live about one hour from the nearest town - so I would like to find out the problem - before I call a repairman and maybe fix it myse

Fills with water, sounds like it starts to pump water then stops, then start again. It attempts to start pumping water 3 or 4 times them turns off leaving the water in the tub. I have read about the water needing to heat up for the cycle to advance. When I check the water that is left in the tub it is warm but not hot. The heating element is not hot either. I did a continuity test on the heating element and it seems to check out ok. I also did a continuity test on the red wire from the heating e

I also have a dishwasher (AEG Favorit), and it does not heat the water anymore. It worked fine for last 3 years, and all sudden, it only washes dishes with cold water.

Kenmore dishwasher. The upper rack is not getting clean. Even very light residue remains. And, detergent is left in door at end of cycle. The bottom is filling up, so I don't think it's the intake valve. Also, all the blade openings appear clear. I am noticing that hot water is not filling the dishwasher when I first run the cycle. Even if I have hot water running in the sink, the dishwasher fills with cold or warm water. So, I think this is the problem. What should I do? Thank you in advance!


I find it odd that the dishwasher is filling with cold water if the water is hot at the sink. It sounds like the dishwasher is connected to the cold water line rather than the hot. Check under your sink; if you've got standard plumbing, the dishwas ... Dishwashers

I have a Dishlex Global 500 dishwasher (DX500lWW*b). Woke up the other night to find water all over my kitchen floor. The hot water hose connector to the hot water tap split (bursted). The dishwater was not in operation at the time but I can only assume when the hose bursted the dishwater came on to alert me? the code on the dishwater is displaying ''oF'' - which means Incorrect fill level of fill time. I have consequently had the hose connector repaired but the display still has the code ''oF''

I have a 2 year old Electrolux ESL 63010 dishwasher, and it worked perfect until a few days ago, when it did not wash cleanly and the dishes came out cold. I read a few forums and it seemed to indicate the heating element. So I ordered one a fitted it, but still the water is not getting hot, or drying the dishes after the complete cycle. I have done a visual check of the PCB board, which looks clean and good. No error sounds, and it completes all programs, but with cold water and no drying. W
