Question about Hobart AM14-253 Free-standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Verifying breaker rating of AM-14

I'll be supervising the electrical installation of an AM-14 unit purchased at an auction, and want to clarify the manual's recommended wire sizing. The motor nameplate states 200-230 volts and the voltage selector block at the motor is correctly connected. It also has the electric heat option. Just curious as to why we need 50 amps capacity. I can't read the full-load current on the motor's nameplate, but if I assume it's less than 10 amps, do the electric heaters draw that much additional current? I didn't see anywhere in the literature where these heater wattage is given.
Thanks......Lee

Commercial dishwashers don't take it for granted that the hot water is hot enough to sanitize. And, they know restaurants need to turn dishes.

So there is enough heat to make sure warm water heats up quickly to sanitizing temperatures.

Our dishwasher has two grey and one green wire but the instructions say there should be a white, black, and green one. How do we figure out which wire is which?


The green is the earth. If the other two are the same colour, I guess the polarity positive and negative doesn't matter. What does the Bosch installation instructions say?

You'll have to take the door apart to access the controls. Before you do so turn the breaker to the machine off. You will also need a voltmeter with the ability to test continuity. Once you have the power off, open the door to the machine and remove the four screws across the top, and then down the sides, this should give you access to the door latch and the main control. On the control you want to located the white block looking thing located normally near the top of the door respectively. Take the wires off and test for continuity, if its there the fuse is good but more than likely it won't be and that will be the problem. The part number for that is pt# 8193762 and can be purchased at any appliance part store. Now if the fuse is good put the door together and take the kickplate, the lower part, off and then on the right side you'll see a silver box, which you need to open to see where the power comes into the machine. Sometimes the wires get to hot and melt causing a short. If this is the case fix the wires, and if its not and the fuse is good then your control board is bad and that part number is 8528172

Dishwasher cycle stops and readout says F2


Hello, welcome to FixYa.
Based on your post, "Asko 1485 Dishwasher. It is showing a F2 code", the good news...It is likely nothing very serious, but the "resolve" requires some investigation on your part.
What the F2 means is the control has indicated a overfill.
**before proceeding turn the dishwasher power off via the home breaker panel, or unplug it from the wall if that is possible...most are hard wired to the home electrical...safety first**
The first thing to do is remove the toe panel/kick plate and inspect the base for water. There will likely be water present.
With the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base, that should restore normal operation...it should be known that if you leave the unit for a few days, the water in the base will evaporate hence appearing as everything is fine again...if any other problem/leak does exist it will return.
If the unit works fine after resetting the power/breaker and soaking up any water present, it can likely be chalked up to a drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump... (it could mean a faulty drain pump so you'll need to pay close attention the next few times you run it)
**The float is primarily the last ditch safety to prevent disaster in the event of a overflow, back-flow, or leak underneath the unit and the illuminated F2 letting you know to service or call for service to the unit**
Hope this helps move you forward, or even better resolves the issue altogether. Let me know of course, I will help you move further if necessary. Good luck. Please take a moment to rate my solution and your experience here at FixYa today.

Am interested in buying bosch 500 series dishwasher, but notice power cord and water cord are not included. I currently have a kitchenaid DW, can I just use same cords, or do I need to purchase new cords...


you should be able to use same cord. I would use 14 guage wire will run 15amp.
it will probably say 14/2 or 14/3 on the wire.
I would say your old wire is right. make sure you find the breaker for the dishwasher and turn off power before you work on it.

When the unit was running it quit the display went blank? is there a fuse somewhere, all i can find is a printed control panel. DU1055 model.


Does it function at all? If not it's prob not the fuseable link. I'd put money that you have a bad contriol (the circuit board has shorted). I have the same model. Mine shut down during a wash cycle - totally dead. It has power but doesn't function. The wiring diagram (located down on your kick plate) explains how to test various components. Two things you can do when the unit has power but is dead - Turn off the power to the unit. Open the door and unscrew the six screws that hold the top of the dishwasher together. The front top control will now be loose.On the backside there is a gray cover. push the tabs back and remove this cover - make sure the power is shut off at the breaker). Under the cover you will see your circuit board and a bunch of wires. There is a 14 pin connector that connects the circuit board to the key pad. push the tabs back and lift out the circuit board. carefully unplug the 14 pin connector and leave it unplugged. Put your circuit board back in and install the gray cover over the controls - leaving the 14 pin connector unhooked. install the six screws - basically putting the thing totally back together. Leave the dishwasher door open and turn the breaker (power) back on. Count to five and close the door. If you have a bad key pad your dishwasher drain motor will cut on and run for 2 min. If the control is bad (the circuit board) nothing will happen. The control is fairly easy to replace - costs around $122 bucks for parts. Hope this helps!
Oh yeah, if you want to check the fuseable link it's the round thing on the circuit board - has two black wires going into it. MAKE SURE the power is turned off at the breaker before you mess with this.

Wont restart after power surge & verifying power supply restored


The control board may have been damaged by the power surge. You should install a surge protection device on the incoming power line, thereby protecting everything in the home from damage.

Hello there, If this unit is tripping the breaker lets say on the pump out drain cycle, then you for sure have a problem in the motor and pump assembly.Anytime a breaker trips, if the breaker isn't worn out, it indicates that it is drawing more amps than it is rated for due to an overload problem and so on.You're motor and pump needs to be checked out on site with the proper electrical tools and so on. Wish I were there to help.
Good Luck, Shastalaker7
