Makes a big difference. Cold water valve is is normally marked blue or simply cold water. connected to cold water tap. Hot water marked with red colour or simply hot and connected to hot water tap.(Red hose - Hot water. Blue hose- cold water.).

Probably because it is hooked up wrong...

The water feeding it should be hot water... meaning it should be hooked into you hot water piping, not the cold water...

The dishwasher will keep hot water hot but it is not powerful enough to heat the cold water up...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry. Silly question but I have to ask ;-0)
Have you connected them round the right way? The hot water hose should be screwed onto the RED painted position and the cold to the one painted either white or with no colour.
If you are ABSOLUTELY SURE they are round the right way, you machine is malfunctioning!

My thermostatic concealed shower valve only gives either boiling hot water or cold water, there is no inbetween temperature? the cold is fed from mains and the hot from a combi boiler. the plumber has said...


Hi,

If the hot and cold are fitted the wrong way round then the thermostat on the shower unit cannot operate properly!

Most thermostatic mixer showers have a 'bi-metallic' thermostat, if you supply the hot to the cold and vice versa IT WILL NOT WORK.

It is like wearing the left shoe on the right foot and the right on the left! It doesn't work.

Re-install the hot and cold to the correct supply, and this will sort it.

I hope this helps.

Orientation of inlet pipes


I am not to sure if this answers your question but I think you are asking which way the hot and cold hoses connect to the wasing machine? if this is the case if you look on the back of the washing machine you will see stamped in the metel a H for hot connect the hot water inlet hose to this, If it is not marked, hook up the hot water hose to the washing machine and place the water temp selector to hot and turn machine on if hot water comes out you have the correct hose hooked up,if not then the cold water hose goes were you hooked up the hot water hose. hope this helps

The temerature settings for washer are wrong. I sporadically get very hot on cold. cool on warm. hot on cool. etc.. It is supposed to be an all cold rinses wahers


if this is a machine with hot and cold hoses connected, check they are the right way round. don't rely on what your hose plumbing says.
to check, put on rinse and if hot water flows in, then hoses are the wrong way round

Can i connect a dishwasher to the hot water pipe??


In my opinion you always connect to the hot water unless there's some compelling reason not to like your dishwasher's manual says to connect to cold. Your dishwasher will heat up whatever water you have connected it to, but since you have a tank of preheated water already sitting in your water heater you should use that.

The "resin in the water softener" example, I think, makes no sense since your dishwasher will heat up the water to something like 160 degrees Fahrenheit no matter if the input is cold or hot...
