Do you know if it's a hot or cold feed at inlet


Hi Charles
The traditional method of supply was using hot water for filling. However, it is possible to save money on some machines by hooking up to cold water as the element in the dishwasher uses less power than your water heater. Unfortunately, some manufacturers still require using hot water for filling. You'll need to check your manual to see if this is the case. Here's a link to This Old House explaining dishwasher installation.
Hope this helps

Instructions or Manual required


Actually every dishwasher I've worked on had one water inlet and it was always for hot water. Approximately 3 gallons per cycle.

Is it a cold water or hot water fill


It's your choice.There's only a single supply hose and with most dishwashers that means cold fill only, but as this is a compact basic worktop model the manual supplied suggests that users connect to a hot water supply.

In real-life situations though, the water drawn from the hot supply often isn't instantly hot so all you do is drain cold or tepid water from the supply pipe and let it get replaced with wasted hot water which then cools in the pipe! If the machine features condenser drying like many dishwashers, then cold water is essential for it to work. A final consideration is that unless your hot water is supplied at mains pressure (such as in a combi-boiler or megaflo system) then the water pressure from a hot water storage tank will not often be high enough and you'll have to use the cold supply.

Can I use cold water fill when installing this machine


Hi,
No,
There are only a few dishwashers that have good enough heating elements to be able to use cold water.... most all of them need to fill with hot water and then the element just keeps the water hot...

Brand new roper washing machine model # RTW4440VQ2 the cold water is very slow filling hot is fine


This model of washer has something called an Automatic Temperature Control. This means the washer puts water into the tub at specific tempreatures instead of just 100% cold, or 100% hot. Be sure and check that the hot and cold fill hoses are connected to the proper places on the back of the washer. It's possible that the ATC (mentioned above) is causing the washer to fill slowly on the cold setting.

WHIRLPOOL AWO/D 5726 - cold water feed only?


Most washers now made in the u/k, are cold fill only, but if the new washer is hot and cold fill, and you only have a cold supply, then it will tell you in the installation guide how to connect it to use it from cold only.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

My dishwasher is filling up with water but the water want get hot


The water needs to be hot before it goes into the dishwasher. Just before you start the machine, run the hot water faucet until the water gets hot.

Some dishwashers have a heat boost feature to sanitize the dishes, but it's not intended to take cold input water and make it hot.

Hot and/or cold fill


A dishwasher usually fills with hot only. Actually it will fill with whatever is connected to it.

Hi. The above machine stops mid cycle and drain/fill light is on, also error code F3E, have cleaned both hot and cold water inlet filters, also checked drain pump and drain line, all ok. Machine drains with no issues and fills with hot water, runs for a while then shuts down.
Any ideas?

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
