Question about Hobart Dishwashers

1 Answer

Which way do the dishes face in the tray before sliding them into the dishwasher, or does it matter?

Some people say you must face the dishes forwards, but others say they can be placed facing sideways in the tray. We found that facing the plates sideways lets us spray both the front and back of the plates easier than if the plates were facing forwards.

SOURCE: dirt left on dishes on top tray; bottom tray washes fine

The broken bottom arm is probably preventing any water / water under pressure to get to the upper arm.
After you replace the lower arm, you should have much better cleaning in the top shelf.
While you are in there replacing the lower arm, recommend you remove the filter under it and clean the filter and any debris you find. Be careful of broken glass!
Good Luck!

SOURCE: Whirpool dishwasher, top tray spray unit does not spin

When the spray arm does not spin and even the powder does get mixed in, your probably have a failing pump/motor.
Before you call for service, try the following. Remove the lower spray arm and filter beneath the spray arm (and as always, check for plugged spray holes and for any broken parts.) Screws will need to be removed to to this.
Rinse everything in the filter, removing anything that does not belong.
With a flash light, inspect the whole sump area, looking for anything that may be blocking water flow. Watch out for broken glass down there!
Look closely at the impeller, looking for damage and that it spins freely and is securely attached.
While you are looking down there, inspect the heating element for damage/being broken/bumpy when it should be smooth.
Reassemble and run a load of those gathering dirty dishes!
The detergent ~should~ dissolve and clean effectively. BUT, if you have recently bought a cheaper, generic dishwasher powder, buy yourself a name brand powder like Electrosol or Cascade and only use it. The cheaper stuff is junk and will rarely clean even in perfectly operating DWs.
If all this does not work, then the pump motor most often the problem and needs to be replaced. When it is being worked on, make sure the heating element is checked. If I were replacing the pump motor, I would also replace heating element at the same time.

SOURCE: dishwasher lower spray arm falls off

These parts can be replaced easily and reasosnably cheaply for example the top spray arm is about £20.00p. But you need the back water feed tube as well as the lower spray arm which should come as one package. (depending on model i'm going by bosch). You shouldn't have to pay more than £30.00p + p&p. Hope this helps.

There are no error codes showing, water is definately getting hot but dishes on bottom tray not cleaning, i have used few products specially designed to clean the dishwasher itself without any dishes in,...

Check that the arms spin freely when spun by hand, then check the outlet jets at the trailing end of the arms are not blocked with food particles and other solid matter. This often happens and the arm is unable to turn because the water jet that is supposed to drive the arm does not have the force to rotate it with the result is that the upper dishes do not get enough water and chemicals. .

The upper spray nozel no longer spins. There is water going in but for some reason it no longer turns leaving the uper tray of dishes dirty.

Check that the arm outlet jets at the trailing end of the arms are not blocked with food particles and other solid matter. This often happens and the arm is unable to turn because the water jet that is supposed to drive the arm does not have the force to rotate it.

Kitchenaid Dish Drawer unit is canted forward; I need to get to the back legs to adjust them downward. How do I get to them?

Open the dishwasher door and undo the two screws that secure the face to the counter-top. Open the kickplate and slide the diswasher out of it's hole. You should be able to easily access the back legs now. It may be easier to disconnect the drain and supply hoses (turn off the angle stop first) and flip the dishwasher upside down using a carpenter's level to make sure all your feet line up. Flip it over, reconnect, and reinstall.

The dishwasher is not dring the dishes

How old is this unit? Are you removing the dishes at the end of the cycle or leaving them? Are you filling the rinse aid dispenser? The new dishwasher will not dry properly without rinse aid. Dishes have to be removed at the end of the cycle because a dishwasher is a moist environment moisture will reform on the dishes if left with door closed. A dishwasher does not have a fan to move the moist.

It is leaving soapy taste on dishes

you are using way to much detergent. and it is probably a stainless steel dishwasher. you should run a cup of vinegar on the top rack face up with nothing else in the dishwasher and no more detergent. run the vinegar in the dishwasher 3 times and then only cover the detergent tray a third of the way when washing the dishes.. do not put any detergent in the prewash slot.

I also had this problem. Support person couldn't tell me if the pump was supposed to run even when setting the control knob to 'off' (bar before (1)). After draining the pan, the control knob functioned normally. So apparently any power to the unit will run the pump when the overflow pan is filled, no matter the position of the knob.
