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.

Is the washer a cold or hot water fill?


I think only cold water is enough. The washer machine will warm up the water.

The dish washer washes ok, but often does not dry the dishes. I have descaled and cleaned it but still hit and miss. can i fix it my self. thank you Chris


You didn't state the precise model, but if it's a cold-fill only machine (most Zanussi models are) and if it uses condensation drying like most, then a cold water supply is essential for the latter to work.

Many owners connect such machines to the hot supply in the mistaken belief that it will make the machine cheaper to run, but unless they have free hot water (solar heating?) then it's usually a falsehood and the trade-off is incomplete or non-existent drying.

Just got a new Bosch dishwasher (forget which model). After the dishwashing cycle has ended (even long after), the dishwasher and dishes are still wet. Was this an installation problem? Thanks


Hi -
I can't see how any installation problem would cause this - if the dishes are still wet at the end of the cycle, you'll probably find the water isn't heating during the wash cycle. The dishwasher uses steam to heat the washing compartment and dry the dishes. It would appear that the dishwasher isn't heating water internally.
Even if the washer was accidentally connected to the cold water supply ** (see note), this shouldn't happen as regardless of the water supply temperature, the washer should still heat the water to the correct temperature internally.
** UK dishwashers should be connected to the cold water supply. For US installations, dishwashers are commonly connected to the hot water supply. For other locations, please consult your installation instructions.
I suggest you start a regular wash cycle and leave it to run for 10-15 minutes. Then open the door and test the temperature of the water in the base of the washer by hand. The water should be hot and there should be steam present in the washer when you open the door.
If the water is cold or only warm, the water isn't being heated internally or isn't heating to the correct temperature, in which case you should contact the retailer or Bosch Service immediately for a replacement. Do not accept an offer of repair on a brand new washer!
Additionally, do not attempt to repair the dishwasher yourself when under warrantly as this will invalidate the warranty.
Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please let me know your location and the model number of the washer. This should be laser-etched into the top of the door if you can't find it on any of your paperwork.
Regards, BElectric

Do I connect this dishwasher to the hot or cold water supply?


Always to the HOT WATER supply... If you want a proper dish-washing; you can connect it to the COLD WATER supply but in the end your dishes will look just a little bit less dirty than when you have inserted them into the slots...

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


Hi,

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...

I have an Asea 1200 Dish Washer and I have a problem with the hot water.i have found the hot water is not entering the machine even though the temp: is set to 70 max:what can be the problem and how can I...


Make sure the washer water line is hooked to the hot water supply line in the house. If it takes a while to get hot water when you turn on the sink faucet, it will take longer to bring hot water to the washer due to the lower flow volume. If you bring hot water to the faucet first, then start the machine, it should solve this problem. The washer's heater should then raise the temperature to final requirements. Hope this helps!

Water does not heat up


sounds as if the water supplied to your dishwater is on the cold side supply. Dish washers do not heat water themselves they have the hot water supplied to them from the hot side of the water supply to the house. Very few dishwashers have a water heater hook up built into them.. I would check the water supply to the dishwasher I think there is where your trouble is. Good Luck

Wash water isn't hot even after we run hot water in sink before turning on dish water. However rinse water is hot. It appears the heating element is not working on wash but is on rinse?
