Do you know if it's a hot or cold feed at inlet


Hi Charles
The traditional method of supply was using hot water for filling. However, it is possible to save money on some machines by hooking up to cold water as the element in the dishwasher uses less power than your water heater. Unfortunately, some manufacturers still require using hot water for filling. You'll need to check your manual to see if this is the case. Here's a link to This Old House explaining dishwasher installation.
Hope this helps

Why is water accumulating at the base of a newly installed furnace?


Air contains water molecules. Cold air has a lot more than hot air does. When you heated all that cold air the moisture was squeezed out in much the same way water accumulates on the window glass when hot air interfaces with cold.

I have recently installed a washer in my shop. Only the cold water hose is hooked up since I only have cold water in the shop. I ran the first load and as it filled water is spraying out of the hot water...


First check that you have selected a cold water only cycle. Otherwise the cold water will backfeed through the hot water inlet. If that doesn't help or isn't possible, I suggest you buy a blank cap to screw over the hot water inlet. You should be able to get one from any plumbing store. Hope that helps.

Can neighbor use washer using cold water hook-up only?


Good day,
Yes if cold wash and rinse are used only. If the selector is set to warm accidentally, water would fly out of the hot water port when filling. Be careful, or hook up another cold water supply to the hot inlet.

I just got this used and would like to know do you hook it to hot water or cold when installing it?


Hello. Definitely hook it up to the hot water under the sink with a shutoff valve. Then when using it always run the water in the sink until it is hot before you start the dish washer.

Im installing a Maytag 412 top loading washing machine. Im not sure if it is the top input for hot or cold? Could you please help. Thanks, Tim


Without the complete model number, I'll have to inform you like this.
If it's red it's the hot inlet. Blue is the cold. If not colored. Normally the case has and H and a C stamped into them next to the corresponding inlet.
If all else fails do this. Hook up the water lines to either one. Now with both water lines hooked up and both the cold and hot water turned on. Plug the machine in. Use the selector on the console and set it to cold wash. Turn on and let it have time to turn hot ifit's going to. Feel the water temp. If it's warm or hot, swap the lines. If not, you have them correct. If the water is warm or hot, swap the connections. Good luck!

Dishwashers normally are hot or cold feed.
My wife runs water at the sink to get it hot going in before turning on the dishwasher.
You can use either cold or hot water.
We have ours hooked up to the hot water side.
They work better hooked up to the hot water.
