No water coming from any hot water tap

Postby Robbie66 » Sat Nov 09, 2013 2:02 pm

Hi there,
I am hoping someone can help me. I replaced my dishwasher last week and since then do not have any water coming from any of my hot taps. I have a combi boiler which is working ok and there is water coming from the cold taps. I have tried the tricks for an air lock ie cold water to hot but have since read you shouldnt do that with a combi boiler. Can anyone help . I do have a valve that is turned off for the washing machine but it has been like that for the past couple of years so don't think its that.

Thank you

Simply Build It

No airlock will stop hot water from a combi boiler. IF the cold is working then the hot should be too.

My guess is you have turned a valve off to connect the dishwasher and forgotten to turn it on again.

Where is the boiler? Did you make any changes to the pipework when fitting the dishwasher?
