Water not heating

Hi. I don't believe that my IDW 603 is heating the water on any of the wash programmes. I only have a cold water feed connected but presumably the machine should heat the water anyway? Any suggestions gratefully received. Tks PAul

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

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...

Plumber has connected hot water supply to dish washer can that be a problem


For most dishwashers the hot water is the connection you want to have for the supply to the dishwasher...

I believe that it is also correct for this model also...

The dishwasher heating element will keep the water hot but is not powerfull enough to heat cold water effectively...

You will be just fine...

Is the feed pipe a hot or cold feed?

Connect the dishwasher to the HOT water side. Although most dishwashers have a heating element to heat the water, they are normally installed this way to reduce the amount of time the heating element is on. This not only extends the life of the heating element, but also reduces the amount of electricity required to heat the water. Another helpful hint: Before you run the dishwasher, run the hot water tap until the water runs hot. This will fill the dishwasher with water that is already hot instead of the cold water that normally sits in the line after the hot water has not been run for a while. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Flashing programme lights


Thanks for using FixYa. That means the control sensed that the heater in the D/W did not operate 3 times in a row. So the unit locks out. First remove the kick plate and you may have to pull the unit out from under the cab, but check your heater. Use a meter to see if it reads open; if so orders a heater assay it will come with a new control replace it too. If heater checks good then press in sequence normal wash, heat dry, normal wash, heat dry, normal wash, heat dry three times within 6 sec and all the lights will come on then hit cancel. What that did is reset the control and clear that fault. Keep in mind that D/W does not heat its own water and incoming water temp should be 120. The D/W will maintain that temp. When starting your D/W first turn on your hot water till it gets hot then start your D/W this ensures your unit fills with hot water and not cold

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Is it OK to attach a hot water feed rather than cold water.

All dishwashers are suppossed to be connected to hot water. Who connected yours to cold water and why? Doesn't make any sense. Definately change it over to hot water feed.

Belling IDW 603 dishwasher

You can cancel the programme at any point by holding down the last button on the right hand side for about 10 seconds until it clears (its the same button you use to get it going again when you open up the door).
