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.

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.
Hi 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

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).
