SOURCE: washer

If I'm not mistaken, these dishwashers are built by Asko for Viking. If thats the case then you probably have a bad circulation pump. Under Asko's warranty (not sure if Viking is the same) these pumps are covered parts and labor for 3 years from installation date, and 5 years for the part only. The pump is accesed from the back of the machine,so you have to pull out the dishwasher. Then you remove the lower plate in the rear and the motor at the very back center is the pump. You remove it by turning it about a 1/4 turn either clockwise or counter clockwise, depending on the style, then place the new one in and turn it to lock it in place, being careful that the sealing oring stays in place or youll get a leak. The part will probably cost you around $150 unless viking marks theirs up more than Asko. Good Luck!

SOURCE: new dishwasher fills with water but does not start washing

It is possible that the motor pump seal is locked and needs to be freed up. Remove the filter and sump screen and place an 8mm nut driver or socket into the circulation pump opening ont eh right hand side. The nut driver will engage a nut on the center of the circulation pump impeller rotate it 2 revolutions clockwise to free it up. If it does not turn at all then the motor needs to be replaced. Remove the nut driver replace the screens and check for operation.

SOURCE: Fills with water but won't wash.

It could be a motor or a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. The motor (and pump) located beneath the dishwasher. Check if motor spins. In case it spins, the problem is with the pump ,in case it doesn't spin it could be a motor problem or a motor and pump problem. Good luck

SOURCE: Dish washer over filling?

The first thing you should do is clean the level probes in the unit. There are two probes sticking through the back of the unit and the water completes a circuit between these two telling the machine when it is full. If they are clean, you may have a faulty sensor or wiring.

SOURCE: Kenmore dishwasher 58715142400 fills but doesn't wash

Motor has gone out..just like mine...Make sure u have voltage going to the motor, (disconnect the plug from the motor) and use an electric meter to make sure you have voltage going to the motor. If so the motor has either gone out or has been blocked by something! If no noise except clicking then motor has gone out. Looking at about $150 for motor.

Go to hobartcorp.com instuction manual are available on its site to download.

Makes sure all screens are in nothing in tank under them (spoons especialy). turn power switch on, shut door and it fills, should say fill on led display. once its filled open door and put tray in shut door and it starts wash cycle. led will say wash then it will go into rinse. when risnes dispaly turs of its finished. open doors take tray out. put next tray in. to drain out to clean there is a little moon shaped lever right above basket it will life the drain stand pipe greay plastic tube under screens and it will drain out shut door turn on the switch and it will fill back up and off you go. Soap wil be with a privet vendor if you have a already installed soap system call them and they most likely have reps who cann show you you basics.

Hobart WM-ID dishwasher doesn't heat water enough to clean dishes


The WM-1D does not have any internal heating devices. You have to supply the machine with the proper water temp. It has two fill valves, one for wash and one for rinse. It should have 150F supplied to the wash fill valve and 180F to the rinse fill valve.

Hobart am 14 electric heat does not turn on water temp just drops


Assuming that the machine fill cycle works properly and the float is intact, and the heater contactor doesnt pull in:
possible heater contactor malfunction: check for power to coil
High limit snap thermostat may be tripped or damaged ( needs to be manually reset). located in heater connection cover.
Thermistor probe and or wiring to it may be damaged
main control board may not be functioning properly. check output to heater curcuit

Hobart AM-14 dishwasher


it has a time out function once float is up is your water pressure correct. if to low it will first few cycles be low but after the will get to correct level and that is to the top of grey plastic drain pipe it cannot or should not be higher then the Gray drain pipe top, it overflows out that any extra rinse goes down it. check the o-ring on bottom of that grey pipe you could be leaking out the drain in between loads you come back and half the water is gone.
