Hobart dishwasher am14c constant water

First i had no water, then I replaced the fill solenoid.... but just the guts, Now I have constant water flow even with power off. I put old guts back, and the system keeps filling and draining the same. Can this be a circuit board problem.... if you know or have any other ideas, please let me know. Thanks for your time, Thanks Chuck

You have a defective inlet water fill solenoid, DO NOT TRY TO REBUILD THE OLD ONE, REPLACE THE SOLENOID. Unless you are a VERY EXPERIENCED service tech. These solenoids are always going out and are not that hard to change, but they are really complicated to rebuild. Don't be cheap, get a new solenoid.LOL...I am a service tech. and change these valves all the time...Hope this helps....GOD BLESS....Randy...

SOURCE: Dish washer over filling?

The first thing you should do is clean the level probes in the unit. There are two probes sticking through the back of the unit and the water completes a circuit between these two telling the machine when it is full. If they are clean, you may have a faulty sensor or wiring.

SOURCE: dishwasher not filling

Yes you should have 120v to the valve so the problem is elsewhere. Possibly the control isn't sending the proper voltage but you will need a tech to verify as this board is about $130

SOURCE: Dishwasher top spray bar does not spray due to low water fill

Check the water hose going from the sink to the dishwasher to make sure it is'nt clogged, if there's a water shut off valve under the sink make sure it's fully open, also check to make sure the spray arms at the bottom of the dishwasher that supply water to the top rack is clean with no debris or obstructions in the spray hole's, the water entering the dishwasher should be at a warm temp, if it's cold the dishes will not get clean, you should have good water pressure from the house supply for it to fill properly, the float is also called a flood switch, it should not be activated during the water fill cycle, if it's activated it will shut off the water inlet valve and the wash cycle will stop or the dishwasher will drain, if your still having wash problems it could be a defective water inlet valve or a bad timer, if that's the case you might have to call an appliance repair man, hope this helps, good luck.

AM 14 C commercial dishwasher. water leaks from "spinner spouts" when unit is not in use. Any ideas?

This sounds like the inlet magnetic solenoid valve is leaking, first thing to try is to turn off the main water valve beside the machine, if the water stops coming in then the inlet water solenoid valve or valves will need to be replaced
Good luck

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.

Where can I buy a solenoid gasket (the little rubber part that controls the water inlet) for a hobart am-14 warewasher? They seem to be a hard part to source.

Most AM-14's use a Parker 3/4" solenoid valve. Readily available from Johnstone Supply, International Commercial Supply, Franklin Machine Products, or Hobart (same part, more expensive). Comes as a whole kit, new diaphragm, strainer, o-ring, and plunger (MUST BE CHANGED).

Hobart am14 water runs through it all the time

If water is running even with the machine turned off then your solenoid valve needs to be cleaned out or rebuilt. This valve is in the back top of the machine by the gauge.

Uaable to reach the correct tempature

Your rinse Thermister is shot. Replace the thermister between the fill valve and the solenoid. Also be watchful of the 120V, ensure this is secured as there is two power sources. Is ya good

Hobart am14c water keeps spraying even with power off

The internal parts of the solenoid valve are bad.if your standing in front of the machine look to the right in the back you will see the water line going to the valve.turn the water off,remove the black coil and set aside,then unscrew the valve with a pair of channelocks or pipe wrench.clean all the parts up and reinstall.if this doesnt do the trick you need to replace those parts.let me know.
