Question about Hobart AM14-253 Free-standing Dishwasher
Replaced heating element in dishwasher, and won't heat, did I hook up
wrong, I thought I put it back the same way, although I noticed all the bridges to each element go to the same element , did I hook up bridges wrong?
A couple of things to check.look inside the unit,remove the screens and on the right side you should see a float make sure there are no holes in it or water.next look in the box where the heating element is,you should see a round black disk that is above the element (this is the high limit).there is a little button in the middle press it in and see if you hear a click.The way the heat cycle works on this unit is when you first turn the unit on it fills, the water level brings the float up and hits that little metal probe which is a switch, the power goes through that then through the high limit, the power then continues to energize the contactor which then pulls in sending the voltage to the heater.
