Question

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

Applies to

  • front loader washing machine (integrated and freestanding)
  • top loader washing machine

Resolution

1. We do not recommend connecting washing machines to a hot water line. 

Our front and top loader units have been specially designed for installation using a cold 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 water used for washing can not be cooled down again.

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