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

Tank air pressure


Hi Chris...
Normally you set the air first.... but it can be done either way, just be sure that you have about 1/4 of your tank an air cushion, this stops the pump from cycling on and off to fast

Can propane liquify inside the tank during temperature changes and therefore have proplems dispensing


Propane is liquid in your tank. The vapor pressure will depend on the temperature as you can see by the following chart. For an example at 0F the vapor pressure in the tank would be 24.5 psig. and at 90F it would be 150psig. This is why you draw vapor from the top of the tank and then go immediately go through a high pressure regulator. Then usually at the appliance there is also a regulator (sometimes incorporated in the safety valve) You are burning propane as a vapor not a liquid. Remember for safety that propane vapor is heavier than air and sinks to the floor, so one must be careful for proper ventilation.
Temperature vs Vapor Pressure
(oF) (oC) (psig) (bar)
-44 1) -42.2 0 0

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.

WATER USEAGE


Depending on the age and size of your washer-Front loaders cut water use by nearly 40 percent. A typical top-loading washer uses about 40 gallons of water for each full load. In contrast, a full-size horizontal axis clothes washer uses only 20 to 25 gallons. That means that, by purchasing a horizontal axis model, you could save as much as 7,000 gallons of water per year. You also save all the energy you would have used to heat that water, meaning added savings for you and a big boost for the environment. These appliances also use less energy than conventional washers - approximately 50 percent less, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

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

FAGOR WASHER FAULT FO2 WHAT IS THIS CAUSE


Hi there,

I suspected suds build up, so I tried both regular wash cycles (e.g. Normal) and Rinse and Drain cycles multiple times to clear suds in the system, but still received the F02 error. Sometimes the SUD error message came up, but not consistently.

I ran the built-in Diagnostics tests. It made it to C:06 then got stuck.

In both scenarios above, the washing machine continued to try to pump water out, despite the fact that all the water had already been drained. After 8 or so minutes, the F02 error came on. As I understand it, if the pressure switch detects either water or suds, it commands the drain pump to continue. After 8 or so minutes, if it's still detecting water or suds, the F02 error is displayed.

I performed the following with no success:
1. Check Wire Harness connections - OK
2. Check Drain pump. – OK, as water drains at a rapid rate
3. Check Drain pump motor - OK, as water drains at a rapid rate
4. Check that the Drain hose and Drain Pump Filter is clear of
foreign objects. – OK, ran a cable through both hose assemblies (exterior and interior) and not blocked.
5. Check the CCU – appears to function normally.
6. There were no kinks in the hoses, nor was the height of the pump beyond what the manual recommends.

After more diagnostics and troubleshooting, I found that the Pressure Switch was stuck and reported the SUDS state (continuity made between contacts 11 and 14 on the Pressure Switch itself). I ran many Rinse and Normal cycles with no detergent and still got this F02 error. I checked the state of the Pressure Switch’s Empty and Level 1 contacts which intermittently reported the correct water level condition (EMPTY and Level 1). In all cases contacts 11 and 14 (SUDS) were continuously made (connected) irrespective of water level, rinse conditions and the use of no detergent.

I removed the pressure switch and tested it by blowing into the inlet and did hear the switch click, so it seemed to work properly. Given the diagnostics above, I concluded that the pressure switch hose must have been clogged.


Good Luck!! Thanks for using FixYa!!
