Hobart am 14c doors won't stay closed. Replaced counterbalance spring but don't know if it has the right tension on it?? Door opens up during wash cycle.


I think you have a commercial machine, and it almost sounds like the door or attached sheet metal may be warped.
Recommend you have someone watch it and see if the latch is really secure, or is always just about to let go.
Also, see if an electric or electronic part has failed allowing the door to open prematurely.
If the latching mechanism is very touchy, and you want to try to do-it-yourself, perhaps a pry bar used gently could adjust the door to not let go at the wrong time.
God bless your efforts.

2 used LXi machines, they were power washed and stored. an electrician had to open the electric board (drawer) in order to hardwire machines both machines flash the "door open" (dr op) display.


there is a door switch (reed switch) located inside (I believe) the top right side of the unit and there is a magnet in the same place on the door that triggers the switch. If it isn't adjusted right it wont sense the doors are closed. Odd that both would be doing the same thing. Here are the parts diagrams. Reed switch part number 00-473109 http://www.hobart.co.kr/data_file/LXi.pdf

My washer panel will light up and the load washer light will come on, but the machine won't start


Hello,

To me that sounds like the problem may be within the door switch/lock, on the doorlock asm. is a little botton that sticks out of it,look and see if its their or perhaps its broken off. What that button does is tells the washer the door is closed so it can go ahead and lock it to start the cycle,its perhaps broken off sothe machine doesnt think the door is closed and thusly wont start.

Have a Hobart am 14 ? Service guy sent in a magnet (pt.# 96552450) and a switch (pt# 436071) The switch does not match what is in the machine. What is wrong with this set up?


Call them back!
I assume that he sent you the parts for the new version door switch assembly or He used the wrong ML# when looking up the parts. The ML# is the material list they used for each version of the machine over the years. When they make changes to a machine, like updating the door switch, they issue whats called a TSB (technical service bulletin) to each technician and parts person. Nowadays I think its all computer based. and they dont issue the paper manuals that they used to issue. It was much easier to track way back when. not so much today though.

Hope that helps.

My dishwasher is not filling up water to start the washing cycle when the door is closed


Asuming you have an AM15, Check you have power to the fill valve during fill cycle. Make sure your drain is closed to retain the fill water. You should have 20 psi flow rate.

Close door read out appears


You have a problem with the door alignment and the door switch.. The slightest movement triggers the door switch. You should have someone look at what is causing this issue.

Am model Hobart dishwasher


Yes. Most of the AM models have a magnet on the RH door, and a corrospnding reed switch on the jam. Sometimes the magnet fractures in the casing and weakens its strength. Otherwise it is likely the reed switch.

On the more recent AMs, it you open the control box and there is a green board on the inside of the door. There will be an LED to show when the door is closed. Look towards the bottom right of the board.

Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDS02SRSS2 start light blinking won't start


I have this same kitchenaid model. It would not start after selecting the wash cycle and pressing start. The light would blink as if the door was open. I did the reset by pushing the sani-rinse, heat dry, sani-rinse, heat-dry and closing the door. You can hear something going on inside. After that stopped (about 3 minutes). I was able to select the wash cycle, press the start, close the door, and it started. Good luck!
