Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I think you will find that all washers are able to heat water. If they are hot and cold fill, they use the heater if the hot water supplied is not hot enough for the particular wash. If they are cold fill only then they need the heater for all non-cold washes.
If you purchase the washer you are thinking of and it is cold fill only, it will have only one inlet hose, the cold water one and it is a straight forward installation- hose from washer screw into cold supply tap.
If it is hot and cold fill you have a choice- either go to the expense of plumbing hot water to it OR purchase a 'Y' 'tap' adapter. The adapter screws onto the cold supply (by the 'bottom' of the Y) and the hot and cold hoses which go to the washer are screwed into the (top) 2 ends of the 'Y'. The washer opens its hot valve, gets the only water supply which is cold through what it thinks is the hot hose and heats it up accordingly. When it wants cold it opens its cold valve and gets the cold water through what it thinks is its cold hose- which it is!
I hope this clarifies the situation for you and if it has please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Bosh dish washer has a plastic fitting for the water inlet looks like regular plastic not cpvc for hot water ,I was reading some of the question and answers and one say hot one says cold?


If the machine has only 1 fill hose, I would connect it to the cold tap. If you connect to hot only, the machine goes through its cycle too fast and wont wash as good. The machine stays on a wash cycle until it heats up the water. If you connect to hot water, it will do a shorter wash because it doesn't have to heat the water up as much. The shorter wash time, decreases how good the wash result is.

When water is on mains the hot water doesn't work only the cold working


If you have hot or warm wash selected and you get no hot water, a possible cause is that the solenoid inlet valve on the hot connection has failed. Try connecting the hot tap to the cold inlet on the back of the machine, and selecting cold wash. If you then get hot water coming in you will know it is almost certainly the solenoid inlet valve on the hot connection.

I've had my machine for at 7 years now, does it have to have both the water hoses connected, my seems to need both, and I hate using hot water for washing, is there any way to stop the need for the hot...


Some washers require that both water sources are connected. If you are content with cold - water washing only, I would get a Y-hose connector and run both sides of the washer to the cold water line. See picture below for details.

Makes a big difference. Cold water valve is is normally marked blue or simply cold water. connected to cold water tap. Hot water marked with red colour or simply hot and connected to hot water tap.(Red hose - Hot water. Blue hose- cold water.).
