I bought a Fridgidaire UltraQuiet 111 for our Panama house off the grid. The plumber just put it in using the cold water supply under the kitchen sink, and it's using a lot of energy from our generator in heating Can we switch to the hot water supply instead (and use our gas demand water heater), or is this unit meant to only use cold water?

Fist issue, plumbers putty should not be used on any water connection for potable (drinking) water, use Teflon tale if you need to. If the leak is at the housing most likely the housing is bad, replace it.
This is caused by the cheap bearing's in the motor. Even after I have replaced my $200.00 motor assembly it still leaks. put a small flat dish under it as the leak should be small and when the dishwasher starts making a loud noise the bearings are gone and I do not recommend replacing motor as it is half the price of washer itself. I myself will never buy a fridgidaire again. However if you do replace the motor assembly it is very easy and there is a video on youtube showing you how. good luck
What are you doing? P traps stop sewer gas from coming into the house --only if there is water in them. If you are talking about putting your drain line into the P trap line, you could. You need to have a plumber see your installation to be sure.
If you are working with a plumber that can't answer your question, than what kind of help do you think you will get here. Not much of a plumber if you ask me, if you had problems with your first Mansfield why on earth would you purchase another, and use the same plumber??? I put a Kohler in, when I put a addition on my house and it's been working over TEN years without question and did not need a plumber to install. Take the thing back where you purchased it and exchange for an Eljer or Kohler and do not consult that braincell of a plumber, I would do it myself it's not hard go to you tube and teach yourself there are thousands of tutorials out there for doing just this DIY project.
You could only check the basics. Since the dishes are clean, it means they went through the wash cycle. It also means that that the holes on the washer arm are not blocked. If they were salty and dirty the wash arms would be something to check. And since they came out feeling like salt is on them its possible they didn't rinse and its also possible the dirty water didn't drain.Were your drain and fill hoses checked or did the techs just check the dish washing machine itself? Its also possible the water for rinse is not hot enough. Before the rinse cycle comes around try running the hot water at your kitchen faucet. Any other issues may be within the cycling of the machine.
Your problem is: You need some instructions on how to install a sink in your new house
We could set up an on line chat right here at a convenient time for both of us. I can talk you through it. It would be helpfull if you had the ability to take pictures and up load them at that time so I can see what you've got. The only sink I don't recomend for homeowner installation is a pedistal sink. They are very difficult even for a plumber.

Your question is:
water pressure not great would a external pump help.
Depends on your situation. If you live in a house with a well pump then turn up the pressure.
If you have city water and the pressure is lacking then either install a house pump after the meter or if it is just the shower you're worried about then a booster pump on the shower line is the ticket. Be aware that useing the booster may reduce the pressure at the other faucets in the house while it's being used. The house pump will not exhibit this. You will likely need a local pro to help you with installation.
