Question about Champion 26 in. D-HBC Free-Standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Heats up water slowly, only by repeated operation

Our unit does not heat the wash water, except apparently through the rinse water, and only after running it repeatedly (between 10 and 20 times) before it is sufficiently hot to wash dishes. A bit of troubleshooting shows that the heating element is not receiving any voltage. I do not have a schematic to follow, and would like to know what are the likely culprits. Thank you.

The wash tank element should be operated through a 3 or pole contactor which gets its power only when the rinse tank has come up to temp and switched the thermostat over(rinse tank heating takes priority). Is the rinse tank element fully intact ie-is it pulling its full amperage or is part of the element blown causing it to take longer to heat? Is the rinse contactor dropping in when the thermostat for the rinse tank is turned fully down? It sounds like a thermostat or contactor problem- good luck and let me know how you get on. Kitcheneer

How does the water get hot

Cold fill is more efficient in energy usage apparently and makes your dishwasher able to have the A+ sticker on it. There is a heating element inside the unit or in the bottom of the washing hole depending on age of the washer that heats everything up

Dishwasher heats but when it starts the rinse and dry cycle the heating delay light comes on and won't proceed to the next cycle

Sounds like the heating element is not working. Usually the hot water temp is OK for the wash cycle (110 to 140 degrees) but the rinse cycle asks for 140 to 160 which requires the heating element. (As does the dry cycle).

What is the amount of time for a regular wash? Time on the plus wash?

a regular wash should take about an hour and a half. plus wash would be longer only because it heats the wash temp hotter.
wash temp is generally around 140 degrees
and your rinse is around 161 degrees.

your flow through heat assembly heats the water at 2 degrees a minute. so it can take anywhere from and hour and a half to two hours for a full cycle.
try turning your sink on hot water until you feel hot water coming out then start the dishwasher so it doesnt have to heat cold water up to those temps. it should run a little shorter.

Extremely long cycle

The drying coil that is broken also heats the water during the wash and rinsing phase. Right now it is waiting for the water to heat up, that's why it's pausing. Replace broken heater, they are relatively cheap and can be gotten at repair

Washer Pauses and Shuts down Repeatedly

Check the cold water line into the unit. Remove the hose from the washer and clean the screen. flush the line while it is disconnected into a bucket or small garbage can. Your washer wont advance without a fill and most fills/rinses are with cold water

Odd operation

This unit is a sanitizer, not a full fledged dishwasher. It is designed for restaurants and bars where the primary use is washing glassware. The behavior you describe is normal for this model. The manual can be found at the following link:
