Can I plumb a s5443 into a Hot water supply.


Thats the only line you need to install dishwasher,you need the hot line and not a cold,the hot is for the heat that is needed to thoroughly clean the dishes.

No hot water


If the water is cold when filling you may have a plumbing problem,(connection to cold water line instead of hot). If thats not the case,it could be the heating element or thermistat. A check with an ohm meter would tell.

Kenmore dishwasher. The upper rack is not getting clean. Even very light residue remains. And, detergent is left in door at end of cycle. The bottom is filling up, so I don't think it's the intake valve....


I find it odd that the dishwasher is filling with cold water if the water is hot at the sink. It sounds like the dishwasher is connected to the cold water line rather than the hot. Check under your sink; if you've got standard plumbing, the dishwasher supply line should be connected to the left water pipe.
Regardless, the water temperature doesn't fully explain the symptoms, especially the detergent left in the door (assuming you're using fresh detergent and it's not caking in the door prior to washing).
I would check the blades again. Even thought they may appear clean, there may be debris in them that get forced into the openings during operation, but fall away from the openings when the water flow stops. Remove the blades, run water into them, then invert them to drain while rocking back and forth. If there's crud in them, you may need to do this several times.

We have gravity water feed and is not filling up quick enough. Could i mix with hot water as well.So putting in a y to mix cold and hot together. Thanks Dave Williams


hi dave. actually you are supposed to fill a dishwasher with hot water only.

the long term fix for your gravity feed water system would be a shallow well pump.

please rate my answer as a fixya ,thanks

WIRLPOOL DISHWASHER COLD WATER CLEAN ONLY!!!


HI Nick- the element in the dishwasher dries the dishes and sometimes boosts the heat of the water. Your water should come in already hot, so the problem is either your hot water heater or that the plumbing line was switched to cold by mistake. Or that people are bathing, laundering, etc. and using all available hot water right before you run the dishwasher.

Hotpoint aquarius dwf30 dishwasher


you can plumb into hot but there are some snags
first hot water pressure is often a lot lower than cold so the machine may take a long time to fill
second if the water is too hot it will destroy the resin of the water softener and you will see brown marks on the crockery.
third it a bit uneconomical as you will use a lot of hot water

Indesit DIF04 integrated dishwasher


Dishwashers normally are hot or cold feed.
My wife runs water at the sink to get it hot going in before turning on the dishwasher.
You can use either cold or hot water.
We have ours hooked up to the hot water side.
They work better hooked up to the hot water.

Dishes not getting clean


when your dishwasher was reinstalled was the discharge hose loop up high behind dishwasher to prevent the water from draining? Also make sure that there is air gap where the hose ties into the drain.
