Why the dishwasher does not heat water?

If after the washing cycle stops, you suddenly notice that your dishes are cold, wet and dirty —
this is a sure sign that water does not heat up or is not heated enough. Do not panic, it is likely
that the reason for this are mere household problems, which can be fixed quickly either by you or
the specialist.

● If your dishwasher is new and you are using it for the first time — it is very likely that it
is simply connected wrong. As a result, the dishwasher may be collecting and draining water
continuously and as a result has no time to heat it. Unfortunately, only a person familiar with the
rules for installing dishwashers can eliminate this problem.

● Wrong washing mode. Make sure you set the correct cycle: some imply heating the water
only to 30-40 degrees (the so-called "delicate washing"). Besides, if you select the cycle with the
maximum heating of 30 degrees and the manual tumbler-switch is fixed at 90 degrees for
dishwashers with electromechanical control, the dishwasher will by default work according to the
chosen program, that is, the maximum heating of the water will be 30 degrees. Read more about
this in the manual to your appliance.

● The filter is clogged. If the filter clogs up in modern dishwashers, water circulation
decreases, then heating element does not turn on and the machine does not heat water. Clean the
filter and continue doing it regularly — after each washing cycle.
We hope you find a key to eliminating your issue among reasons described above. If not, the
malfunction is more serious and requires a competent approach. Contact our service center for
accurate diagnostics.
