Question about Dishwashers
If I'm not mistaken only hot water goes to the dishwasher. What you have is a valve with two outlets usually 1/4 or 3/8 one goes to supply side of sink faucet and other to the supply line of the dishwasher. This valve connects to the hot water supply line of the house. The stub outs should be close to the D/W. If you want to use cold water then you will have to connect this valve to the cold water supply and then connect one side to the dishwasher and the other to the the cold side of sink faucet. Also I believe that dishwashers need the water to be at a certain temperature +/- 150 degrees.
Home Depot/Lowes sell the valves fairly cheap. Hope this helps.
