Hereof, is it normal for a new dishwasher to have water in the bottom?

Some water (standing water), usually one to two cups, remaining in the bottom of the tub is normal. Without a high drain loop or air gap, dirty water from the sink can flow into the dishwasher. The dishwasher drain hose should be connected to the house drain either directly or through an air gap.

Similarly, do dishwashers need hot water? Dishwashers use only hot water for cleaning. Hot water commonly is more effective for cleaning the dishes and, coupled with the heat cycle of the dishwasher, can sanitize the dishes. Dishwashers do not have a cold or warm cycle like a washing machine.

Thereof, do new dishwashers come with hoses?

Drain line: The dishwasher will come with a hose used to connect the dishwasher to the drain under the sink. Normally the hose is connected to an inlet in the garbage disposal. Because you don't have one and don't want one a little simple plumbing is in order.

What uses less water dishwasher or by hand?

In our tests, we found that it took just over 12 gallons of water to wash four place settings by hand. In other words, hand washing used 5 times as much water as an efficient dishwasher, and 3.5 times more water as an average dishwasher. The more dishes you wash by hand, the more water you'd waste.
