Does not produce hot water.


Make sure the connections are all turned on and that their all in the right holes. It can also maybe be a problem with it's solenoid or thermostat.

On model du81qdwgq1 is hot or cold connection


You are supposed to connect the dishwasher to the HOT water side. Although most dishwashers have a heating element to heat the water, they are normally installed this way to reduce the amount of time the heating element is on. This not only extends the life of the heating element, but also reduces the amount of electricity required to heat the water.

Another helpful hint: Before you run the dishwasher, run the hot water tap until the water runs hot. This will fill the dishwasher with water that is already hot instead of the cold water that normally sits in the line after the hot water has been shut off for a while. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I want to buy a new GE diswasher but I do not know about water inlet, is it hot water or it could be normal?


Dishwashers are usually connected to the hot water line under your kitchen sink. Although, a dishwasher has a heating element of its own, connecting it to the hot water side minimizes the amount of time the heating element cycles on and reduces the amount of electricity consumed.

I have hot air but no hot water in my dishwasher


Check to make sure your supply lines aren't crossed and that your hot water supply is connected to the dishwasher

F1 ERROR


This is a water heating error.

There are a few possible causes:

  1. Bad heating element
  2. Bad connection of wires to heating element
  3. Bad control board
Be sure that water hookup for dishwasher is hot water.

Unplug electrical connection to unit.

Remove front bottom cover.

Check wires to heating element for burning and that they are connected properly.

You may need a multimeter to check power to element and to help trace the circuit if necessary.
