Hi Bobbertb

Let me see if I can help you. If the unit have a hot water booster behind the bottom panel, and it is located on the left and oval shape; well that's old. most parts are no longer available. If the booster tank is on the right side and somewhat square looking, then there is a chance.

Normally the model and serial number are stamped on a piece of metal, riveted on the upper section of the door.
More, models like wm5h or sr24 were very popular and most parts are still available.

I suggest you search the internet for those models, see if they match what you have.

What does es stand for on commercial hobart dishwasher

Hello Antoinette Badra,

Hobart is one of those FEW names that seems
to have survived with a STERLING REPUTATION...
intact (uncommon... ).

Unlike KitchenAid, KENMORE & Maytag
opinion: personal experience).
If you are thinking about a WINE COOLER
and you DRINK anything bigger FORMAT
than "TWO BUCK CHUCK" ... bring a bottle
to VERIFY you cannot fit it into KitchenAid
(KUWL304ESS, KUWR304ESS = pathetic))).

Used to have a HOBART dealer right here on
TELEGRAPH Avenue in OAKLAND 9, Calif....
(Oakland used to have PRIDE TOO)... Where
I was delighted to find ... not only competence,
parts & integrity... but PRIDE and they did not
mind some curious child (me) who was interested in
repairing THEIR (commercial grade) equipment.

So it was with a bit of JOY that I undertook your
question to find where my OLD FRIEND had gone...

After EXTENSIVE reading...
I find that HOBART is not just ENERGY STAR®
compliant... They are a "PARTNER" and a 2015

So... without the benefit of a MODEL NUMBER
9usually required to speak intelligently)...

I will have to guess: ENERGY STAR® = "es"

Hope I am helping

Industrial Washers

Apocryphal (?):

I'm just saying...
Every once in a while some designs make it past the ACTUARIES... (hidden quality wins over fast & cheap).

Hobart WM-ID dishwasher doesn't heat water enough to clean dishes

The WM-1D does not have any internal heating devices. You have to supply the machine with the proper water temp. It has two fill valves, one for wash and one for rinse. It should have 150F supplied to the wash fill valve and 180F to the rinse fill valve.

This dishwasher is older than most living people in this business. It works great except it is a 208 three phase unit. It is in St.Peter's church in New York Mills, MN. We bought it used during our remodel...

Your AM9 is too old to get new parts from Hobart.
Why does the inverter need to run when the machine is not in use? There must be a breaker to turn it off.
If you decide to replace it, any AM series will fit your tables. Don't buy anything older than AM14.
