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

Hotpoint aquarius will not heat water

Hi,

Although I do not know your particular machine I strongly suspect that the heater element is malfunctioning/broken. Even if it is a hot and cold fill it still requires the element to heat the water up to the correct temperature for the selected wash. If it is cold fill only it certainly needs the element all of the time- apart from rinses!
Sorry but it depends now on who you have at hand to repair as to your next step.

My hotpoint aquarius dwf30 will not drain so will not wash...

Do you hear the motor run or is there deadly silence when you select drain.
Does the wash cycle start - do you hear water getting in and washer arms move?
Are there any lights flashing?

Where is the element on a Hotpoint Aquarius dwf30 dishwasher?

It sits in the base of the machine and you would need to remove the complete top section of the dishwasher to gain access to it, which involves removing the door first, then the balance weight and finaly the stainless steel top section

Hi i have a dwf30 for some reason all the items are coming out with lots of grease marks on them the tablet pops out ok as you can hear it but everything seems as if its not been rinsed out i thought it...

is there any strange rumbling or moaning coming from the drum ??? if so the oil and greace may be from the back bearing due to the bearing oil seal becoming faulty allowing water through to the bearings

Does it use cold water to wash then heat it up

Yes that is correct, as all washers are now cold fill only, they incorporate a heating element to heat the water,unless of course it has a cold wash programme only.
Hope this helps.

Hot point aquarius 1100 - does this have a heating element for cold water feed ? or does is need direct hot water feed ? (there is a inlet at back for both hot and cold so presume no heating element ?)

All Hotpoint washers have heater element regardless of whether they are cold fill only, or hot and cold fill.
if 2 connections at rear, then it is hot and cold fill, if only 1 connection, then it is cold fill only.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Washing m/c water not heating up.

Make sure the economy button is not selected if it has one, as this bypasses the heater..
you say you have had element checked and seems o/k, to be certain it is o/k then test with a meter when it is on heat stage in the prog, and make sure you have a 240V reading across the heater terminals, if you have and it does not heat, then the element is faulty.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
