Can I connect my washing machine to a hot water line?


Our front and top loader units have been specially designed for installation using a cold water line.

We do not recommend connecting to a hot water line.

  • Technically, the inlet valves of our machines are designed for water up to 65 ° C, but the washing programs do not always use hot water and the wash temperature can not be cooled again after running in the water.
  • For example, you would like to have delicate garments, Eg from wool with the cold wash.
  • Since the inlet temperature of the wash water in a hot water line, Eg, 40 ° C, the woolen wash would also be washed at 40 ° C.

Note: Continuous hot water can lead to unsatisfactory washing results.
