Question about Hobart AM14C-155 Dishwasher

1 Answer

Operation of digital temperature indicator

Not clear as to what temperature is actually measured. Does this always indicate the tank water temperature, regardless of what cycle the machine is running? (I assume it does, but just want to be sure.) The electrical schematic shows thermistors labeled "wash" and "rinse" but there's nothing showing how they're wired.

THANKS!!.....Lee

When the unit is idle and in a wash cycle the wash temp is displayed.If you look inside the tank you will see a white float and a metal probe which is the themometer for the wash tank temp.The rinse temp will only be shown when the display reads (Rinse) and theres a thermistor that screws into the water line near the solenoid valve that measures the temp.

I have e4 showing


E4 error indicate an abnormal water level which means too much inlet water (E5 also is refer at this fault).

I quote other comments/solution about this same error:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I had the e4 error code and i took the outer panel off and inside behind the power button is a grey reservoir tank which measures the water that goes inside the dishwasher which actually got bunged up with **** and grease causing the floaty thing to get jammed and cause the e4 code to come on which means abnormal water level the top to the reservoir just unclips on both sides then just clean all the gooey stuff out and put it back together it worked for me.

Good luck.

Dishwasher Blinking Clean Light


The blinking "clean light" is a common problem with some of the Kenmore and Whirlpool models dishwashers. The problem is usually attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling. Apparently, there are some issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers that causes an error code to be generated if a certain water temperature is not achieved in a specified time interval (this time may differ between models). There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault. Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button. This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.

To keep the fault from returning, it is recommended that you run your hot water faucet in the kitchen until it runs hot BEFORE you start the dishwasher. This will heat the water in the supply line for the dishwasher (most dishwashers are fed from the kitchen sink supply line). The theory is that if you fill the dishwasher with hot water from the start of the wash cycle instead of the cool water that is normally in the lines (especially if you have a hot water tank located far away from the kitchen), this should satisfy the requirements of the temperature sensing circuits. If the fault reappears, there should be a tech sheet located inside the lower panel under the door that explains what the fault is. The flashing light will be a series of flashes, followed by a pause. If you indeed have a component problem, it will depend on the number of flashing lights in the sequence. Refer to the tech sheet to determine WHAT component is affected and how to troubleshoot.

NOTE: Keep in mind all dishwashers are not alike and have different panel options. If you do not have the same set up that I have mentioned, the tech sheet for your dishwasher will explain the touch pad functions. The tech sheet is located behind the lower toe panel under the door and lists the proper sequence of buttons to push for diagnostics and troubleshooting. Just remove the screws that hold the panel in place and remove.

NOTE: Sometimes the tech sheet is located behind the inner door panel. You will need to remove the screws securing the inner panel to access it if this is the case. Make sure you turn off the main power breaker before doing so.

I have often found this to be a momentary glitch in operation. However, if the problem keeps reoccuring the number of flashes is an indication of WHICH circuit is causing your problem. You will need to refer to your tech sheet to determine this.

I hope this helps you solve your problem.

What does the fault F70 mean for a Miele G 1534 Sci dishwasher, please?


hello,

The code is an indication of a problem on the washer

F67 means the input voltage on the microprocessor is incorrect. Code F70 indicates a problem with the water temperature sensor circuit. F76 means the NTC temperature for the cold water valve is over the limits.

thanks.

My dish washer is 4 years old and is not cleaning dishes or disolving soap. HO appears in the status window which my manuel says indicates a water heat delay. How can this water heat delay be repaired ? ...


The water heat delay indication could be caused by the fact that the heating element has failed so that the washer will not proceed with the wash program until the water is up to the correct temperature. You should be able to tell if the element is getting hot. You could try manually putting in hot water before the washer fills up with cold to see if the wash then proceeds.

What is the rinse indicator clear knob inside door


That is the compartment for a liquid rinsing agent (Jet Dry). If you use it you can see if the compartment needs to be refilled by looking through the knob. Rinsing agent is supposed to keep glassware from having water spots but is not always necessary.

Dishwasher adp 4601 when switched on the pump activates.and after 2 mins start lamp bliks and pump goes off


The number of flashes indicates the fault. Reset machine by holding down the start button for 3 secs, then start a new cycle. If fault reoccurs, the number of flashes indicates fault eg 3 flashes, stop, 3 flashes stop, indicates F3 fault.
Faults listed below- advice on repair depends on which fault your machine is indicating, but may give you an idea of what to look for
1flash=NTC (temperature sensor) break- NTC outside normal range.
2flash=water leakage-float switch in base activated.
3flash=heating fault(check element.NTC,control board).
4flash=drain error-blockage in pump or drain system,or faulty water indicator switch.
6flash=water inlet fault-check inlet valve, check inlet hose not kinked
7flash=flow meter failure (flow meter measures water intake volume-large plastic weir located on left hand side of machine-reomve side panel to access)
These a most common faults, but further advice on repair requires counting flashes when fault occurs.

How do I get the clean light to stop blinking on my whirlpool quiet partner 1 dishwasher


A clean indicator that flashes/blinks 7 times and then repeats, indicates a problem in the dishwasher which should be investigated and not just the control 'reset'! That is why the control will not let the dishwasher start once such a condition is detected.
If the dishwasher's electronic control doesn't detect a water temperature increase during the main wash cycle, that symptom can occur. No water temperature increase could be caused by a problem in the heater element, its in-line thermostat, the related wiring or a problem in the electronic control.
It is also possible just the washer not spraying properly (possibly from blockage in the filter or problem in the pump), the dishwasher not filling sufficiently or draining prematurely or even a problem in the door latching mechanism's switch(es) could cause it.
*Some actual investigation should be undertaken to isolate and correct the cause of the symptom.*
Once corrected, the error display may have to be cleared from the control manually. That can usually be done by putting the unit into diagnostic mode by pressing the key sequence 'Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry, Normal' and then pressing cancel.
