Question about Hobart 24 in. LXIH-3 Built-in Dishwasher

2 Answers

Hobart lx-g HI there, I have a weird problem with my dishwasher... when I press the off buttom, instead of staying off... it restarts by itself. Also, when it starts filling up, water overflows from the machine ( when it filling up the temperature rises alot more then usual it reaches 190f) and then i turn off the machine to stop the flooding... can you help?

    I've reset it by the circuit board today.... it would stay on "fill" but i couldnt hear the machine filling up, I left it for a bit (without watching it) and it started overflowing... flashing E4...any advice? I just picked up this machine a month ago...

    ok.. i killed the power from the main switch....and repowered it. The unit restarted, I also disconnected the drain tube to see if the water actually empty's (it does)... When the machine power up... it says FILL and takes forever to fill up as well but it never goes on WASH mode, always stays on eventually the water comes out from the bottom of the door... any ideas?

    Hope this helps....

    I tried it... (but which probes are you talking about to clean....) the temperatre does rise eventually but it never goes in the WASH mode... what Ive noticed is when it says fill, and it stays there ...the water starts to leak from the bottom of the door....someone told me about the water float... where is that situated... or do you think my main board has gone bananas because as I mentioned earlier when i press the off buttom it restarts instead of turning off....

    By the way thanks in advance!!!

The problem with the machine restarting is with your keypad, the on button is stuck on and needs to be replaced or you can continue unplugging it. Your other problems are most likely caused by lime build up, is the inside of your machine white. I suggest you buy lime away or similar product and run a delime cycle. When the machine displays 190 is it really 190? Do you see steam?

If you kill the power to the dishwasher from your circuit breaker then turn the breaker back on then turn the dishwasher on does it work ok?If not i would suspect the control board is acting up or is wet.

    It takes 8 minutes or less for the booster heater to hit 180 degrees then starts the 2nd fill cycle,once this happens the water hits the 2 probes in the wash tank (they sit in the back of the tank to the right),when the water hits the upper probe the fill shuts off and a wash cycle begins.Get some sandpaper and clean these probes really good.This may be your issue,let me know.

Hobart LX 30 undercounter dishwasher, commercial Does this model require booster?

Most of the Hobart LX series of dishwashers have their own built-in booster heaters. To check for one, remove the lower front panel (2 screws). The booster heater, if present, will be a stainless steel tank on the left side. If it doesn't have a built in booster heater then it was meant to be used with chemical sanitizer instead.

Hobart LX 30H shuts off and turns back on by itself

Hello Jon,

I work in the product service department for Hobart Corp. and work mainly with the Hobart dishwashers. The most common problem with what you have going on is a faulty keypad on the front of the unit. This is the component with the actual on/off/wash buttons on it. If the problem is very frequent, then you could contact your local Hobart service office and they could come out and troubleshoot the problem to be certain that this is the faulty part before just buying a part and hoping that it works. If you would like to discuss this a bit further or need assistance as to a contact for your local Hobart office, you can contact us at 937-332-2525, and press option #2.

Have a great day!

Hobart lx 18 warewasher what hatco booster heater product compatable with it

The answer to this question will be based on the incoming water temperature that is supplied to the booster heater. The standard sizing for a booster heater is based off of a 40 degree F rise (140 degree F incoming water temperature) or a 70 degree F rise (110 degree F incoming water temperature). For a 40 degree F rise, a Hatco model C-5, S-5, or PMG-60 will supply the needed amount of rinse water for the LX-18 Hobart dishwasher. A 70 degree F rise would require a Hatco model C-9, S-9, or PMG-60 to supply the same Hobart model number.

Did the clean light indicator blinking over n over? check the element wire harness connector. If disconnected fix it and run your dishwasher again.

Also you may check the continuity of your heating element.
