A/washer rubber fill hose can for sure burst. Shut the water taps off when you are away on vacation and in between laundry days.

Built in dishwashers should have the hot water line made either from copper or a similar substance. Often a rubber or plastic hose is installed because they are cheap to purchase. These rubber and plastic fill lines often burst. This could damage your house cabinets and your insurance may not help if the dishwasher has not been installed properly. A stainless steel fill hose line is available for the hot water feed. See picture above... ( the upper hose )
