Question about Dishwashers

3yr old fisher paykel dishwasher not hot.

Hi, my 3yr old f&p dishwasher is only getting hot some of the time. It averages about 1 in 3 washes where it actually gets hot and cleans properly. We have tried all of the obvious things like clearing the drain and cleaning out the squirter bars. It seems to respond well to adding a little bit of disinfectant in with the tablet but it may just be coincidence. The machine is plumbed in to the cold water supply. The water supply is hard water supplemented with rain water in the winter months. Any ideas for a fix? I thought it may be a poor connection on the heater element?

Hi I am buying a MW512 but only have a cold water supply, does this model have an internal heating system so I can do a warm or hot wash?


Hi - Fisher & Paykels does not come with heaters fitted, the two hot/cold inlets are used in prortion to the settings of the wash cycle in use.

So with a cold tap only you would expect cold wash functions only, if you accidently chose a warm wash the machine will start beeping as there is nothing to bring the temp level to the expected setting.

Hope this helps you choose..

FP Hot water used when cold selected


YOU NEED TO CHECK THE WATER TEMPERATURE AFTER THE TUB IS FILLED WITH WATER WHEN COLD IS SELECTED. NEW MACHINES WILL USE BOTH THE HOT AND COLD WATER VALVES TO FILL THE MACHINE. THEY DO NOT WANT YOU WASHING WITH STRICTLY COLD WATER AS THE DETERGENT WILL NOT PROPERLY DISOLVE. COLD WASH TEMP SHOULD AVERAGE 65-70 DEGREES.
