Is it more economical to connect both taps hot and cold or connect cold only and have the machine heat the water

JMHO, but guessing it's probably better to connect hot water to the DW. It could be taxing on the DW to heat cold water every time. At least with hot water available, the DW wouldn't have to work so hard and maybe your DW will last longer--or at least the heating element probably would. Can't imagine the cost of using pre-heated water (from a hot water heater) would be extravagant as a DW probably doesn't use that much water each time.

Changing washing machine heating elemant

washers dont have heating elements, they use hot water from the hot water tank, most likely clogged screen at either end of the hot water hose, replace or clean screen(s) check for screen at water valve, bad,weak or burned solenoid on water valve, replace valve, reason wash cycle is long----- water restriction during fill and rinse cycles they are controlled by the water level switch

We have no hot water boiler kaput - will washing machine heat water (hot wash) if only cold water is going into inlets.

Yes. The washing machine contains heating element and a thermostat. It will try to get water from both hot and cold sources and will heat the water to the required temp.

Is the indecit wm12x washng amchne a hot or cold water fill?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @ 13:45 Tues afternoon.

You can easily check by looking at the back where the water pipe or pipes need to be connected. If there is only one inlet then it is a cold fill and the machine will heat the water up itself.
If there are two inlets the hot is normally marked RED and the cold BLUE.
When the hot water is not hot enough for the particular wash, the machine will heat it in the same way as it would heat just cold water. If, however, the hot water is too hot, it will mix in some cold!

Washing machine doesnt seem to be heating up the water

Hi. Washing machines are dependent on the water supply for their heat. If it isn't getting hot, it's from lack of hot water. Put the machine on a setting requiring only hot water for the initial fill, and start the machine. If the water is at a low or no flow rate, proceed as follows: Unplug the washer, close and disconnect the hose from the hot water faucet. Inspect the inside of the hot water hose; there is usually a screen in the end to catch scale and sediment. If you see anything there, remove the washer and screen, and clean it. Reinstall the hose, and disconnect the hose at the washer end of the hot water hose. Open the faucet, and discharge some water into a bucket. If there is no water, you may have a plumbing issue, so I'd back up to the faucet and check. If you do have water there, inspect the solenoid valve inlet (where the hose connected) for another screen. Clean as before. If debris was found at either location in a sufficient quantity to obstruct your water flow, reconnect the hose, and try to get hot water into the machine again. If no hot water will enter the machine, the issue is probably with the solenoid valve. If you have an electrical test meter, you can test the valve, or replace it. Any appliance parts supply house will have your part.
Best regards, and good luck. --W/D-- Please feel free to rate this solution, and let me know what you find out.

Washing Machine-hot water source

Most washers require both hot and cold supply. If it has two hose fittings on the back, then you need both hot and cold. I've only seen Asko washers that need just the cold. Even if your washer has a water heat option, it will only heat during a portion of the cycle if the option is selected, it is not a substitute for the hot water supply.
