Does a dishwasher have one or two water lines?
Dishwashers use only hot water for cleaning. Dishwashers are connected to the hot water line, which allows the dishwasher to wash with the hottest possible water. Hot water commonly is more effective for cleaning the dishes and, coupled with the heat cycle of the dishwasher, can sanitize the dishes.
Can you connect a dishwasher to the hot water supply?
It is possible to connect the dishwasher to the hot water supply. The maximum recommended temperature is 60°C. If the hot water comes from an alternative source of energy (e.g. solar panels), use the hot water supply to decrease energy consumption.
