I have recently changed my dishwasher over from a direct hot water pipe into the dish washer, to a cold water pipe but the temperature lights keep flashing and then the cycle, which has barely begun,...


A dishwasher requires a hot water line to operate properly. The dishwasher is indicating the water is too cold to even begin a cycle.

I have a dishwasher whirlpool DU945PWSQO I like to know if i have to used hot & cool water install to the dishwasher. Or i have to used hot water only


Hi,
You only need to hook your dishwasher up to the hot water only. You can run a separate pipe from any hot water pipe, but in most kitchens the dishwasher is next to the kitchen sink, so the hot water is just teed off of the piping under the sink...

My dishwasher doesn't seem to be getting water in hence dishes not being washed. motor is on. checkedunder sink . what does 'valve on' mean exactly? i don't see an on off valve. please help!


Follow the hot water fill pipe from where it connects to the dishwasher back to where it connects to the wall. (probably under the sink) Most of the time, you will find that pipe attaches to the same hot water (on/off) valve as the hot water side of the kitchen sink.

Confirm that valve is open (righty - tighty, lefty - loosy (open)) If the valve is open at the wall end then:

The next most common cause of no water entering the dishwasher is the solenoid valve on the dishwasher that is electronically opened when the dishwasher needs water to enter for wash or rinse. This valve is located just pass the connection where the fill pipe connects to the dishwasher and will have two wires connected to it.

Please post back here what you find or have more questions, OK?

Backup of foul smelling water into the dishwasher


Outlet pipe is partially or completely blocked.

Use a dishwasher cleaner in it, but before you even do that, remove outlet pipe from waste pipe - and clear all the gunk out you can.

I suggest a bucket with disinfectant and washing powder to dissolve the grease.

You may need a drain cleaner down the waste pipe too - & flush with hot water and washing powder.

Our new LG dishwasher makes loud clunking noise


I believe this is a brand new dishwasher. Please listen carefully to determine of the sound you hear (clunk) is being made inside the dishwasher or is it being made near by. Most times, the problem is that the hot water pipe is baking the noise when the dishwasher closes the water inlet valve ... and the pipe goes "clunk"
I have not had an LG dishwasher make a clunking sound inside itself when the cycle changes. Also, because this dishwasher is so very quiet (well insulated) the pipe banging would be louder than something inside the Dishwasher.
If you have access to the hot water pipe, listen very near it when the cycle changes for the sound. Follow that pipe (hot water) pipe back and insulate it at the point it is banging. (or get a plumber to evaluate and resolve.)
Please get back to me with what you find, OK?
Good Luck!

Re dishwasher unit / sgs46m78au. water pipe/hose/ connections


The water connection is the smaller of the two and generally near the front of the machine, usually a threaded fitting on a electric solenoid will need a pipe to compression 90 fitting if its not already installed, it needs to be hooked to the hot water and that can be found on the left side going up to the sink faucet to be sure run some hot water and the side that gets warm is the correct one, you will need to turn off the water and install a T to connect the dishwasher if an unused shut off is not already there for the dishwasher. The drain line takes a hose and clamp and will hook into your drain iether through a dishwaser t or the disposal if you have one has a connection for it.

Dishwasher doesn't wash with hot water


just about ALL dishwashers only fill up with cold water (one pipe) the machine warms the water up etc, simple one to solve, just connect up so and use it, one cold water in, one waste pipe out
