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

How to Install Dishwasher

Water not heating


Dish washers only use water supplied from the hot water side of the pipes under the cabinet or sink, so if you installed the dishwasher yourself, be sure that you ran your inlet water line and connected it to the hot water side, and not the cold water side. The dish washer has heating elements inside the machine to dry the dishes, not heat the water. If this is hooked up correctly and you are still getting cold water to heat the dishes, the problem may be that the unit is too far from the hot water tank. In that case, you may need an auxiliary hot water tank installed near the dishwasher under the cabinet. They make small tanks for such purposes.

My dishwasher has always washed in cold water never had any hot water why is that


Hi,
Probably because it is hooked up wrong...

The water feeding it should be hot water... meaning it should be hooked into you hot water piping, not the cold water...

The dishwasher will keep hot water hot but it is not powerful enough to heat the cold water up...

Hot or cold line when hooking up dishwasher?


Hi,
Most every dishwasher made uses hot water... there are a few exceptions, but very few.
Hook it to the hot water line.

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.

Have been given a LG dishwasher LD12AW2 from friend but they didnt tell me whether it hooks up to cold water or hot can you tell me please


Hi,
You should be able to use either.
It really depends on your cheapest method of water heating.
If you use hot, then the connector hose should be for hot water.
Using a hot supply will result in quicker washes, as it will only be heating the water from 60 to around 90 degrees. Using cold it will take longer.

If you like to rinse dishes and then leave them all day for a wash later, then it may be better to use cold supply. If you just load and wash in one go - then use hot.

Re dishwasher unit / sgs46m78au. water pipe/hose/ connections


The water connection is the smaller of the two and generally near the front of the machine, usually a threaded fitting on a electric solenoid will need a pipe to compression 90 fitting if its not already installed, it needs to be hooked to the hot water and that can be found on the left side going up to the sink faucet to be sure run some hot water and the side that gets warm is the correct one, you will need to turn off the water and install a T to connect the dishwasher if an unused shut off is not already there for the dishwasher. The drain line takes a hose and clamp and will hook into your drain iether through a dishwaser t or the disposal if you have one has a connection for it.

Indesit DIF04 integrated dishwasher


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.
