Question about Hobart AM14C-155 Dishwasher

Need to know AM 14 rinse cycle water useage

I need to know how much water the rinse cycle uses at a given pressure--for example, 20 psig, or whatever . Does anyone have any data they've measured (or calculated)? I don't have the service manual in front of me as I type this, but I believe the rinse cycle is relatively short, like 10 seconds.

THANKS!! Lee

What does fault code ef52 on Miele km5733 mean


Heater pressure switch has reset during heating The program continues from the wash block in which the fault is registered without the heating being activated. The fault will only be indicated when the fault code memory is checked in the service mode.

Cause:
Excess quantity of detergent or rinse aid dispensed. Excess foam has developed.

Remedy:
Check the dispensed quantities of detergent and rinse aid. Follow the information given in the operating instructions.

Note:
A check should also be made to ensure that the type of detergent used matches the setting. When, for example, combination products (2-in-1 or 3-in-1 tablets) are used but the corresponding parameter has been set to Normal, rinse aid will be dispensed twice.

Cause:
Heater pressure switch defective.

Remedy:
Replace the heater pressure switch.

Cause:
Pump pressure too low.

Remedy:
Clean the circulation pump and remove any foreign objects that may be present.

Cause:
An item has tipped over and a large quantity of water is retained, e.g., in a bowl, and is then not available for the wash water circuit. This reduces the pump pressure.

Remedy:
Follow the loading information given in the operating instructions.

Whirlpool adp252 not rinsing clean


Hello

Clean the internal parts of the dishwasher. Use a clean wet cloth and wipe down the inside including the racks and the sprayer arms. Remove the upper arm by unscrewing the center bolt. Clean both sides before replacing.

Check the water pressure. The dishwasher requires inlet water pressure between 20 to 120 psi. If the water pressure in the line is too low, proper rinsing will not occur.

Check the water temperature. The dishwasher performs at optimal levels with 120 degree water. Check the hot water heater for needed adjustment.

Use the right detergent. The dishwasher requires detergent designed specifically for dishwashers. Other detergents will leave spots, residue or food on dishes.

Set the machine to the proper cycle. The dishwasher offers a variety of cleaning cycles. Select the appropriate cycle for the type of cleaning required.

Load the dishwasher properly. An overloaded machine will result in dishes not being cleaned thoroughly.

Dishwasher leaves white film on plastic dishes and stainless steel . Salt is full and rinse aid is full.


If your dishes or plastic dishes appear with a white filmy or spotted following a complete wash cycle, adjusting the amount or type of detergent you?re using and adjusting your hot water heater?s water temperature may solve the problem. But before you do either of these, put a rinse additive (such as Jet-Dry) in the rinse dispenser to improve the sheeting action of the water.

Next, you?ll have to determine whether the film is removable or permanently etched. To do this, soak a glass in undiluted white vinegar for about 15 minutes. Or, wash the glass with warm water and concentrated dishwasher detergent or a high-phosphate detergent (such as Glass Magic).

If the film comes off, it is probably caused by hard water minerals, improper amounts of detergent, or unsuitable water temperature.

Permanent etching is often caused by a combination of soft water and excessive heat or detergent. If glassware is permanently etched, there isn?t anything you can do to make it clear again. But you can avoid future etching by taking these steps:

1) Be sure hot water entering the dishwasher is no hotter than 140 degrees F. Don?t use extra-hot settings such as ?Power Scrub,? and use the ?Energy Saver? dry cycle.

2) Adjust the detergent amount.

3) Don?t pre-rinse your dishes before loading them in the dishwasher. Food particles on the dishes actually help the detergent and drying agents clean better.

A common cause of poor washing results is improper loading?dishes that block or impede the spray arm(s) or prevent the soap dispenser from opening. On the other hand, if your dishwasher has chronic problems with good washing, the problem may not be your dishwasher. A good first step is vary the amount of dishwasher detergent you're using and try switching brands.

Other possibilities: Your home?s water pressure may be too low, your water may be too hard, or the water temperature may not be hot enough.

In order for your dishwasher to fill to the appropriate level, water pressure should be from 20?120 pounds per square inch. If you suspect that your water pressure may be low, turn off all faucets or other users of water (such as washing machines and sprinklers) and then put a half-gallon jug under the kitchen faucet. Turn on the hot water full-blast. If the jug doesn?t fill within 14 seconds, your water pressure may be too low for proper dishwasher operation. Call your city water utility to discuss your options, or avoid drawing water elsewhere in the house or yard during dishwasher cycles.

The right amount of detergent to use depends on how large your load of dishes is and how hard your water is. Hardness is measured in grains of minerals?the more grains per gallon you have, the more detergent you?ll need. If your water has 12 grains or more of hardness, fill both dishwasher soap cups completely with detergent. If that doesn?t work, consider installing a water softener. (For more information, see the article Water Softener Systems.

To check water temperature, hold a meat thermometer under the hot water faucet for two minutes; if it doesn?t register a minimum of 140 degrees F., turn up the temperature dial on your hot water heater. (However, if you have a newer dishwasher that heats the water internally, it isn?t necessary to turn up your hot water heater.)

If your dishwasher has worked fine in the past but suddenly your dishes aren?t clean after the dishwasher completes all cycles, listen to the spray arm(s) spinning inside during the wash cycle. If spinning poorly, wait for the machine to cool down, remove the spray arm(s) by unscrewing the hubcap(s), lifting the arm(s) off, and then cleaning out the spray holes in the spray arm(s) with a stiff piece of wire.

My dishwasher isnt rinsing clean, it leaves a film on almost everything. It is only about a year old. It is a Whirlpool. I can't find my book.

Hobart AM 14 model pressure rise


Are you refering to the water pressure gauge near the top of the unit?

If so, during the final rinse/sanitize cycle the gauge should read between 15 and 25 psi.( flow pressure ) and is usually controlled by a water pressure regulator piped into your plumbing near the machine. Once the cycle has finished, it's normal to see the gauge register much higher pressure readings ( static pressure ) This is the water pressure being supplied to your building. Pressures of 60psi+ are not uncommon. What, I think, you're describing is normal.

All the best.

No water pressure in rinse cycle


AM 14's need 20 PSI flow rate of rinse. Is your pressure gauge accurate? Could the rinse nozzles be blocked with scale? If you remove them to clean, make sure they go back in the same positions. Note the upper arm has one each side pointing up, to clean the top of the machine. Check that the upper rinse arm has it's thrust washer under it's hub.

LXGH E5 Code


I need to check my codes to be positive. And I'll check them this weekend. But, I believe E5 is from excess water in the unit, and so it won't go into rinse and add more water.

First and most common -- the drain hose, at the back of the unit is kinked. The unit gets pushed back against the wall and kinks the line.

Second, your probes are dirty. The ones in the back right corner detect water level. Clean them with a green scrungee even if they look clean.

Good luck - Mike

Quick Wash cycle restarting


Aestaie, On the quick wash cycle the machine goes through a heated rinse at 160 degrees. I think what's happening here is that the board checks the thermistor and is finding that the water is not hot enough and say's, hey, I need more time to heat this water and resets itself. The element in the dishwasher will only heat the water 1 degree every 3 to 5 minutes. So after the initial wash, there is a 2 minute drain, it fills again and there is the heated rinse. If the water is 120 and the final rinse needs to be 160, we have some heating to do here. Therefore the reset. Sounds like the dishwasher is working OK, Catriver..post back
