Question about Hobart 40 in. AM14-254 Free-standing Dishwasher
Product, Hobart AM14C I have a slight leak at the bottom of the in the water deposit tank located at the bottom of the dishwasher what is involved to repair it. Dishwasher is still functional for the time being. Can it be welded or replaced or do I need a new dishwasher all together?
I love these machines. Keep it and fix the leak.
If you have a leak. You have to find out where it is coming from. Dripping water from the bottom of tank can be coming from a number of different places and at different times thru out the cycle. The rinse cycle or wash cycle or all the time.
The first place to check is the pump. It will leak during the wash cycle. Especially from the top gasket. This one commonly goes out.
The pump motor shaft seal will leak all the time but will drip from motor, not the tank area. You want to fix this before it ruins your motor bearings or motor.
But since you have a corner machine, the first thing to check is the rear door panel. This is were your door would be if you had a straight thru machine instead of a corner machine. It has teflon guides just like your actual doors and they do leak at times or all the time if the guides are
not sealing. IF food particles accumilate at the bottom of that panel it blocks the water from running back into machine and instead, onto your floor from the bottom of tank areas. This is anther common leak.
The teflon guides should be replaced if they have cracks in them or are brittle and flaking apart. Sometimes they slide down and can be push back up from inside the machine. In either case, you will need to clean all the crud from that back panel edge. Usually thats all I do to fix that leak is just clean it up and push those guides out to outside edge with the tip of my screwdriver to tighten the seal between them and the channel.
Hope that helps!
