A dishwasher only has one supply line: hot water.

The problem with this washer is most likely either the thermostat which controls the heating element or the heating element (or connections to it).

Hi Jon, is this a new machine that you have just got? if so it sounds like the hot and cold water pipes are on the wrong way round. If not sounds like a thermostat problem

    Ahh, if only one pipe it should be on the cold supply, the dishwasher heater element then heats up the water so it sounds like the element has gone

Asko dishwasher d3530. The water in the dishwasher is not hot.


Generally speaking, dishwashers don't heat cold water on their own. Be sure the dishwasher is connected to a hot water supply and that hot water is available to the dishwasher at the START of the cycle.

Often it takes hot water several seconds for house plumbing to deliver hot water to an outlet. If the dishwasher is connected to the kitchen hot water supply, run the water in the sink until the water runs hot before you start the dishwasher.

Dishwashers often have heaters to heat the water even hotter than most home water heaters, but they are not intended to heat cool or cold water. You MUST furnish hot water to the dishwasher from the time the cycle is started.

I've seen houses that take so long for hot water to reach a faucet, the dishwasher is already full (of cold water) before the first drop of hot water reaches it.

Good luck. Hope this helps.

Hi there I have a Zanussi zdf121 dishwasher which is only doing a cold wash, not heating at all. Not sure if its hot fill but the hot water is fine elsewhere. Any ideas please Pete


Do you have it hooked up to hot or cold water supply? Most residential dishwashers don't come equipped with a booster heater. If it's connected to the cold side, you'll have to replace the angle stop with a single outlet stop and replace the hot angle stop with a double outlet stop. This should help out, if not, make sure you have hot water in the faucet before starting the dishwasher. Most dishwashers need at least 120 degree hot water supply.

Should the washer be hot after the rinse cycle?


Try cycling a cold/cold wash and see how that comes out.. if it comes out hot then your water inlet valve is letting hot water in when it shouldn't.. conversely, try cycling a hot/hot wash and see that it does indeed come out hot... ( quick tests to verify performance)..hope this helps.

Water not hot


Dishwashers are suppose to be hooked up to hot water. If you had hotter water it would clean just fine. 120 deg or more!

Wd63 washer dryer when complete when i open the door alot of hot steam comes out


your water supply to the machine has been turned off, or the triplewater valve has gone open circuit on the condensor solaniod if you have a multimeter you can test the valves unplug the machine from the mains and turn the cold water supply off , take the back panel off take 2 wires off at a time and test each solanoid they should read around 3800 ohms if you nget no reading on 1 of the solaniods thats you problem change the complete valve. good luck
