Question about Dishwashers
___1. Does the dishwasher raise the temperature of the incoming water so the soap can clean my dishes as recommended and not leave a white film? the temp of water in *** my old machine*** is 110 degrees. I use cascade platinum pillow and a rinse aide with little help hard water ____2. is it cheaper to raise the temperature of my eclectic house water heater or let the dishwasher raise the temperature. ___3. is this a reliable dishwasher (Kenmore 13543)?
There is not much you can do with hard water as it is the minerals in the water that cause the problem
it is cheaper to let the washer heat the water as it only heats what it wants
Hard water comes from bores as most town water is put through osmosis filters that remove the minerals and produce the soft water
If you have a bore supply the seriously consider fitting a osmosis filter before the house as it will fix all sorts of problems found in the shower, hot water system , septic/sewerage and general health of the people in the house.
The initial cost will be outweighed by the cost savings from detergents and heating
