Re: Need motor & impellor for Hobart AM8
I havn't seen an AM8 in over 15 years.
Hobart will keep parts available for quite a few years past end of production, but this may be too long. The AM 10 and early 12's are compatable.
You need a 6 bolt pump to motor. Yours has the old cast iron wash arms. All the new have light stainless arms. Just checked my records. the new AM12 which superceeded your design was in 1981. Perhaps look around for a used AM14 which fits your tables and plumbing. Confirm the voltage is compatable.
The AM15 is the current spec and is far superior.

The ZIP code for the Sydney Central Business District is 2000 The zip code for the suburbs outside the Sydney CBD are different. If you let me know which suburb in Sydney you require then I can give you the correct zip code.
It depends on where in Australia. The time difference is anywhere from +13 to +16 hours difference from New York. So somewhere between 1100 Feb 3 to 1400 Feb 3. Here is a list of Australian cities and the time differences: Australian Capital Territory - Canberra *+16 hours, New South Wales - Sydney * +16 hours, Northern Territory - Darwin* +14:30 hours, Queensland - Brisbane* +15 hours, South Australia - Adelaide * +15:30 hours, Tasmania - Hobart * +16 hours, Victoria - Melbourne * +16 hours, Western Australia - Perth* +13 hour. I hope this helps you.
I would check out this site for parts, you can order, pay for and have delivered to your door. You can also let them know, before you order, that you live in Sydney Australia, and ask if there is anything you should have that is different. I think the parts will be the same, but it doesn't hurt to be sure. Good Luck.
If this is a new occurance, and not "since it was installed", it may be the drain impellor. Little fins on top of the impellor sometimes get worn off. It is under the lower wash arm in the pump housing. The only trick to taking the pump apart is not loosing any of the shims.
Also, (and most likely if the unit looses water during the wash cycle), any obstruction to the drain valve can cause it to not drain proper. The drain valve uses a little flapper valve to drain the unit. It has a rubber stopper that needs to properly close. The drain valve is at the front of the unit with a red coil and white plastic body. It needs to be closely inspected. (page 22)
If this is a problem since it has been installed, it is likely due to the running of the external drain line. (Too high)
