Why is my Kenwood integrated dishwasher washing plates with cold water? What has gone wrong?
Hi, thanks for choosing JA I’m Gavin and I’ll help you with your dishwasher question
There are a couple of common reasons for not heating. Have you tried using a different program? and did it still wash cold?

Thanks. I have just run it on "Rapid" and the water is again cold.

I am fairly deaf so typing suits me better, if you don't mind.

Hi Gavin, I have now run the machine on "Rapid" and again on "Economy" and the water remained stone cold for each programme.

My explanation why I prefer staying with type seems to have disappeared, so I shall repeat that I am fairly deaf so reading text is the easier option.
Sorry for the delay I’ve just come online. If you were offered a phone call it wasn’t me it’s auto generated.
Could you provide me with your model number please I just want to look into the parts list
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Unfortunately I don't know the model number, nor where to find it.
The model will be on the rim of the door when you open it either in the sides or the top. I can tell you the most likely fault without it but with the model I can be more accurate and provide you a link to the part

I have now found a label which shows KENWOOD KID60510 Srl 1341 S/N 023976 Capacity 12 settings 1930W, which may give the information you seek?
Thank you. I couldn’t find the exact model you gave me but there is a KID60S10 I think the ‘s’ possibly looks like a ‘5’ . There’s no thermostat listed for your model instead there is a pressure switch that allows the heater to be activated. The first thing you should check is that all the filters and spray arms are clear as this will effect the water flow to the pump and can prevent the pressure switch from being activated. If that’s clear you will need to remove the dishwasher and access the wash pump to make sure there are now blockages there. If both of these checks are ok you will need to replace the heater. I’ll attach a link to the heater for you.
