Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

We have a Hobart AM Select. Hobart AM15. During the wash cycle, with utinsels in their basket, the utinsels end up out of the basket and in the basin of the washer. This is during the wash cycle and not the higher pressure rinse cycle. Both top and bottom wash arms are clean, and there are no signs of damage to them. This has just been a recent problem, using the same utinsel baskets, utinsels, etc... Temp is fine, rinse cycle is a little high at 29 psi, but I can hear the utinsels fall during the wash cycle before the rinse.

SOURCE: No pressure to drive swing arm.

Check first that no debris is blocking the holes in the spray arm where the water comes out, and clean out the holes. In case it will not solve your problem, it's look like a pump problem (the pump has two functions : drive water to the spray arms and to drain water out the washer). Open the rear panel and listen if the pump works during the wash cycle. In case it doesn't work, it should be replaced. Good luck !

SOURCE: Water level issues on the Whirlpool washer.

It's overfilling If your washer is overfilling, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Water-level switch
Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

It's underfilling The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

The water temperature is incorrect The temperature of the incoming water determines the temperature of the water in your washer. You get either hot, cold, or a mix of the hot and cold water that's currently available to the machine. So if the cold water that enters the machine is very cold--or if the hot water entering the machine is very hot--the warm water is affected. 

If you live in a Northern climate, unless you adjust the hot and cold water taps that supply water to your washer, the warm water supplied to your washer is usually hotter during the summer months and colder during the winter months.

Water pressure low during the wash cycle


It sounds like there may be an obstruction in the drain. once the washer is drained, in the bottom right corner there is a basket that you can pull up and clean out. As for the water pressure being low...The machine uses a pump that supplies the wash cycle, but on rinse it uses fresh water.You may have a pump that is clogged or losing pressure good luck hope this helps

Dishes not coming clean, film ring on glasses and dried grime on the utinsels. Have run through twice with vinegar, not sure what to try next. Checked basket/drain and it was not blocked just has a small...


That sounds more like a problem with your soap not disolving completly. Try these few simple things. First, run your hot tap at your sink until it gets hot, then start your dishwasher. What this will do is ensure that your "prewash" is using hot water.

The next thing, is you want to select the "heated wash" or "hi temp wash" option with a "normal wash" cycle. What the heated wash will do is ensure that during the main wash the water gets boosted to 140 degrees wich is the temperature that your soap breaks down at.

White film left on dishes is a classic indication that the soap has not disolved or broken down completly.

My dishwasher is not filling up water to start the washing cycle when the door is closed


Asuming you have an AM15, Check you have power to the fill valve during fill cycle. Make sure your drain is closed to retain the fill water. You should have 20 psi flow rate.

No rinse cycle


If it is new, would you not call Hobart for a warranty call? 1-800-444-4764 to reach the nearest branch in Canada.
Seeing it's new it is most probably not programmed correctly. On the control board is factory jumper J5, short thse two pins and press ON on keyboard. when the display shows ty remove short. pressing select on the CB will change the options, pressing up arrow will incriment the change options. first setting is machine type= AS,second is id, hot/cold or plain AM15 only, select H,C,or P.
3rd is tc,auto temp control. The rest will not affect your condition. Press OFF on keyboard to save and exit.
