Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
SOURCE: is this hot or cold feed
This dishwasher should be connected to the hot water line under the sink. If it is connected to the cold line, you will have very poor cleaning. The hot water should be 120 degrees (F) minimum and less than 140 degrees.

SOURCE: DWH B10 F3 - no heat.
The majority of dishwashers are not connected to hot water from the mains but heat up the water internally using the heating element, located in the tub of the dishwasher, controlled by a thermostat. When the dishwasher has a fault with heating, the program will run but not complete and will show an error code on the display panel. Dishes won't be cleaned properly and the detergent won't dissolve.
If your dishwasher does bring in hot water externally from the mains to check the water is warm and there are no problems with the inlet. If the dishwasher heats internally then it is most likely a faulty heating element or thermostat. A fault like this will usually require a replacement part and a repair, but you can check the heating element with a voltmeter to ensure that it is the cause of the problem before calling out for a service engineer.
