Miele DW, Hot or Cold Hookup? Conflicting info.
I am getting ready to install my Dimension Plus. I have read on here from several of you that it is preferable to hookup the DW to cold water if you have the china setting. I was all set to do so, then I read the Miele Install manual that says the following:
"The dishwasher can heat its own water to the temperature required by the wash program.This allows for connection of the machine to either a hot (max. 140F / 60C) or cold water source.
For lowest energy consumption and for fastest possible wash times connect the dishwasher to a hot water source. All programs use hot water in the rinse cycles.
To use the "EnergySaver" program, a hot water connection of minimum 115F / 45C and maximum 140F / 60C (water intake temperature) is necessary.
The higher the water intake temperature, the better the cleaning and drying results."
No where in the manual do I see a mention of a benefit of hooking the unit up to cold water.
So, my question to my more experienced GWers, is have the installation recommendations for the Miele DWs changed? What is your experience? At this stage, I feel like I should follow the hot hook up rec.
