Having problems with your Hobart AM14-253 Free-standing Dishwasher ?

My am-14 is eating the detergent. It use to last a month now less than one week. Is there a soleniod valve thatisn't closing?


Answers :

Hello,
\015\012 The over consumption of detergent could be caused by a couple of things. If the detergent is dispensed by an external chemical pump, the detergent probe may not be working correctly. The probe will cause the pump to dispense too much chemical if it is dirty or has hard water build up on it. You can check the probe and clean it of any debris. The probe is located in the bottom of the wash tank. Most chemical suppliers take care of these sorts of issues at no cost to the customer. If your rinse solenoid is not closing properly, this could cause the detergent to flow down the standpipe (overflow drain). This would make the chemical pump dispense detergent more often then usual. An easy way to check if your rinse soleniod is stuck open is to look at your rinse arms if water is flowing out of them and doesn't stop this would mean your solenoid is in need of repair.

I have a G2500VH pressure washer that has started to pulse when the trigger is squeezed. This happens if I use the 0,25, and 40 degree nozzles BUT if I use the one for low pressure(detergent use) it will hold pressure fine. I have changed the unloader valve, checked all the valves and seals ad they seem to be fine. What could be the problem?

Detergent sticks in main wash compartment. We use cascade complete with bleach (hydroclean action). When this problem started, I switched to cascade complete (liquid) and still same thing happens. The dishwasher is only 3 1/2 yrs old. Have used cascade complete since day one. Only difference is that this one is the one with the bleach. Could this be the prob? We have noticed that it is thicker that just the cascade complete. But thought the liquid would of fixed that prob. Agh frustrated. We hav

I have a Delonghi DW67S dishwasher which I have been using for about 2 months now. It has been 3 washes now that the dispenser hasn't opened while washing leaving the detergent still in the dispenser. I have replaced the detergent with a new one from a different batch but the same problem. I have also chosen a different washing cycle to see if it was that particular cycle I was using but still the same problem.

Northstar Hot Water Pressure Washer (model #157322) While using the pressure washer the safety relief valve activated venting steam and hot water from it... I immediately shut it down and let it cool down. After it was cool, I turned on the water supply again and the relief valve was still spewing water from it. My neighbor said it was probably the "unloader" valve was stuck or damaged. I called around my area and it seems as though no one services my pressure washer.. Is there a manu

The detergent dispenser [Main Wash] door doesn't stay closed. It seems like there is something wrong with the latch, but we can't what. We've cleaned it, but don't know what else to try. There don't seem to be pieces missing or broken. But no matter what, when we put in the detergent [we use the cubes] the door always just pops open and the detergent ends up falling to the bottom on the dishwasher. The dishes are still getting relatively clean, but we want to solve the problem with the door

I recently purchased a Dewalt DXPW 3835 Pressure Washer from Home Depot.... After 4 hours use I no longer get any pressure. After depressing the trigger, I get a second of pressure and then it just dies. I called DeWalt and they couldn't help and to take it to the Warranty Shop. They informed that they wouldn't be able to look at for 2 weeks so I took it back to HD and got a new one and this one does the same thing.

A feew weeks ago Smeg STA6047 dishwasher stopped in the beginning of the programme after approx. ten minutes, and gave the error code E9. There had been clearly water in the machine, but maybe not enough and the detergent box was not open. However, when technician came by two weeks after, the dishwasher worked and he said it was in order. But only after being used only once, the same problem reappeared. First the washer gave the error code E8, on the second try E9. And now it does not start at a

Our craftsmen electric pressure washer stopped working while in use. We have power - red light on gfci and we tested the master switch - has power too. So what can be the problem? One post mentioned a jammed pump switch. What is that and where is it? We used it 2 weeks ago and it worked fine.


The pump switch they spoke of is an internal switch. It is activated by a valve so that when you let go of the trigger, the machine shuts off. This valve is stuck or the switch is bad. Usually the valve is the problem. I would go to Sears and get ... Pressure Washers
