Re: water not very hot
Yes there is a heater in the dishwasher, but I am suprised it goes through the cycle if it is not heating. for this reason I would suspect that it is a thermostat problem. these are situated underneath the machine. you will need a test meter, to have an engineer do this repair it should cost no more than 70 pound.

Hi, it sounds like your either using to much soap or the water is not hot enough. Use alittle less soap the next time and see if you have the same problem. Check the water temp after you machine fills for the wash the temp should be 120 or higher. Clean out the filter and the back flush arm. Also clean the wash arms (every little hole.)
The drain hose needs to be higher than the top of the water level and yes, there needs to be an air gap so the drain does not siphon. As far as temperature, the machine will automatically put in cold or hot water depending on the temps selected. You cannot get straight hot water from this machine...that is by design. You will have to live with the temps you are given...I know, it sucks!
Is your water temp on your water heater set high enough? If it is sounds like you are getting water from both hot & cold water valves. If temp is set correctly on machine temp switch may be bad on warm all time.
Could be a faulty inlet valve, or not enough pressure to operate valve,
Remove hose onto valve, and check the water is getting to it o/k,turning off the water to the valve before you undo the hose.
Hope this helps.
you will probably se the light flashes 7 times then pause and then repeats.this indicates that your unit did not heat the water correctly. most likely youi dont have enough hot water going into the unit, 120degrees or more, or the latch is not engaging fully. check the temps and then the latch strike. its on the tank and is chrome type metal bracket. it should be bent down towards the door frame until it just clears the door. if its too high it wont make the door switches work properly and then no heating of the water. try it. to get rid of the flashing, push the high temp wash, air dry, high temp wash, air dry. then it will go thru a test cycle and back to normal. takes about 7-10 minutes. tom
Make sure the hoses are connected correctly to the water valve on the machine. The connections will be marked with an "H" and a "C".
Given they are correct, most current washing machines have and auto temp feature on the water fill. It allows even cold water settings to bring in some hot water to make sure the water temp is hot enough to efficiently disolve your laundry detergant. The preset temps are usually around 75* for cold, and 105* for warm. Hot water comes in at whatever temp your household water temp is.
