Having problems with your Hobart Dishwashers ?

Hobart CHF 40 dishwasher water coming back into container and flooding

\015 The container (I think its the detergent) overfills and causes flooding all over the floor. When I open the machine at the bottom front I can see one pump ( I assume that is the detergent pump) Cannot find the rinse aid pump but I think my problem is from the detergent side overfilling. If someone could walk me through this step by step as to the location of the rinse aid pump so i can check both, as well as what could cause this and how to rectify, I would be so very grateful. Thanks in advance.\015

Hi can you help me please I have a Zanussi DX6453 dishwasher which has stopped working.

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher and there is not any water coming out of the top wash arm. There is good water pressure coming out of the lower washarm. I pulled out the dishwasher and can see the water going to the top washarm through the tube and it goes up very slowly. I took out the "check ball" below the lower washarm and it worked good. I put the "check ball" back in and ran the machine on "Upper Rack" and it still does not have any water coming out of the upper washarm. It doesn't seem lik

I was replacing my sink faucet today and in the process turned the water off to the dishwasher. Subsequently my girlfriend ran the dishwasher without the water on! Now when I go to run the dishwasher no water comes out (meanwhile I've turned the water to the dishwasher back on). Is there some kind of reset? I accidently touched the coil in the bottom of the dishwasher just after trying to run it and it was hot. What do you recommend? Thanks. Mark

I have a GE dishwasher model GLDL560N10SS. I noticed a burning smell coming from it the other day and then realized that although I can hear water running into the dishwasher when I start it, it never actually runs in the sense that the water is pushed through the various outlets to wash the dishes. I'm assuming that it is because the unit is dry and the heating element is still coming on that it is causing a burning smell. If I open the unit and reset it, it pumps the water back out into the si

In between wash cycles, water seems to back up into the dishwasher. I had a plumber take a look at the drain and disposal in the kitchen sink to see if there was an issue there. He suggested to have appliance repair tech to come look and indicated that he believed that the issue may be the "cylianoid" valve. Does the this valve prevent water from backing up into the dishwasher after it has drained?

Leaking FDW60 I have a Hotpoint FDW60 dishwasher. yesterday it tripped our house electrics and then we had water flooding out of the dishwasher. Through a process of elimination I have now discovered that water is leaking from the drainage sump in the centre of the babse down onto the motor or other electrics. I have looked for loose hoses and there are none visible from the base of the dishwasher, can you give some ideas where the water might be coming from?

I have a mod. GSD2200G00WW . It has low water level and not enough pressure to turn the spray arm. When first starting i see water coming in but not enough. I added water in manually with a container and turned on and the spray arm rotated fine. I closed the door and turned back on and the water drained out of it instantly back to a low level. What now?

I have a LG Dishwasher LD 14AW3 it fills and runs for about 30 min. It then appears that when it tries to rinse it cannot get water and flashes "1E". I disconnected the unit and when I moved it out of its position water was leaking from the bottom of the unit. after cleaning out the inside filter & the hard water filter I re-connected and found it worked. I ran a dishwasher cleaner through it at high temp. After a few loads the problem has come back. It is now located in MY garage waiting for me

Hi, I have a Hoover silent whisper HD98E dishwasher and it's leaking. I know where the leak comes from. Once the machine is on, it pumps the water through the salt container and through these 3 pronged blue container (located on the side). One of these prongs leaks. I believe it is the washer. Can you tell me where I can buy a new washer? Are they specific to Hoover dishwashers or can I get them from Plumbcenter? A quick answer would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

There is a bracket on the back wall with 2 protruding pieces and an open whole in the middle which seems like the water comes out of it. There are 2 metal "clips" on the side of this braket which seems like the plate part of the spining arm should be able to attach to it.. I cannot figure out how..Any helo would be apprecated..
