2 used LXi machines, they were power washed and stored. an electrician had to open the electric board (drawer) in order to hardwire machines both machines flash the "door open" (dr op) display.


there is a door switch (reed switch) located inside (I believe) the top right side of the unit and there is a magnet in the same place on the door that triggers the switch. If it isn't adjusted right it wont sense the doors are closed. Odd that both would be doing the same thing. Here are the parts diagrams. Reed switch part number 00-473109 http://www.hobart.co.kr/data_file/LXi.pdf

Have a Hobart am 14 ? Service guy sent in a magnet (pt.# 96552450) and a switch (pt# 436071) The switch does not match what is in the machine. What is wrong with this set up?


Call them back!
I assume that he sent you the parts for the new version door switch assembly or He used the wrong ML# when looking up the parts. The ML# is the material list they used for each version of the machine over the years. When they make changes to a machine, like updating the door switch, they issue whats called a TSB (technical service bulletin) to each technician and parts person. Nowadays I think its all computer based. and they dont issue the paper manuals that they used to issue. It was much easier to track way back when. not so much today though.

Hope that helps.

No power not coming on. circuit braker is not kicked.


Start with the simple things and work your way from there. You will be amazed how many people call a plumber who flips a breaker or simply clears a stuck float valve (for $80 minimal fee).
If no lights are coming on.
Check if your float valve is jammed.
The valve is a safety feature to stop the machine from over filling. If anything gets under the valve it will jam open and stop the machine. Look inside the machine on the floor will be a small float valve. Looks like a small upside down cup. Lift it and clear anything from underneath.
Not the float valve ?
Check the door interlock latch.
Much like a washing machine a dishwasher will only operate with the door closed (or when it thinks it is closed!). There is a metal tab that engages a switch in the door. This is the same switch that activates as you operate the handle to open the door. If it is misaligned it will not signal the machine that the door is closed and the machine will not operate.
You can check this by overriding the locking tab. Put a screwdriver in the door latch and press the switch. You should see the lights come on and power flow to the machine.
Note: if the machine is in run mode you will get water spraying.
To fix this problem bend the tab to properly engage the switch. Or if necessary loosen the screws retaining the switch and move it to correctly align with the tab.
Not it?
OK now you are into electronics.
First is quite simple. Some units have an internal fuse to protect the control panel. Check that first. Take your time and take care. Turn the breaker off.
The control panel is screwed in place. Remove the screws and gently remove the control panel. Take care not to have parts of the door latch fall out or springs drop out etc. On newer units it is very simple as it is just a circuit board. Look for the fuse and check that it is OK. Replace if necessary with correctly rated thermal fuse.

Door well not stay closed.our door hinges replaceable


If your machine is a Hobart LX series, changing the hinges will probably not remedy your door closing issue.

I'd start at the door magnet. It's located under the handle at the top RH side of the door. Verify that it is there. Next I'd check to see if the other magnet is in place at the top front RH side of the top interior 'ceiling'. It's held in place by a bracket that runs the entire width of the unit.

When the door is closed, these two magnets attract to each other with a firm "snap" and that is what keeps the door closed.

If your door wants to spring open slightly or lazily rest closed without the above mentioned "snap" then you'll need to visually inspect the bottom edge of the door for any cracks or deformation, particularly in the corners. This deformation will cause the bottom of the door to bind against the lower threshold of the machine and keep it from closing. You'll have to remove the door to properly inspect and reform it.

Sadly, my money is on the door being deformed in some way. Hope this helps.

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.

Hobart LX15H indicates E4 and will not fill.


This is what I found in the manual...and on a couple of other sites....

Machine won't fill or won't fill high enough(LX18, LX30 display shows "E0," "E2," "E3," or "E4")

1.Low water pressure — check for clogged hose strainer; check that site water pressure meets minimum flow pressures.
2.Make sure probes are clean.
3.No water pressure — main water supply valves may not be working.
4.Drain valve open - turn machine off to drain machine, then on. Repeat twice (this assists in clearing any drain valve obstructions). Wait for machine to reach READY mode and press WASH. Slowly open door several seconds later and note water level. Close door; 30 seconds later, open door slowly and check that water level is the same as it was. If not, repeat the
OFF-ON procedure.
5. Delime machine.

If this doesn't help let me know and I will get to the bottom of it....good luck and thanks for rating my effort...The Fang.

Am model Hobart dishwasher


Yes. Most of the AM models have a magnet on the RH door, and a corrospnding reed switch on the jam. Sometimes the magnet fractures in the casing and weakens its strength. Otherwise it is likely the reed switch.

On the more recent AMs, it you open the control box and there is a green board on the inside of the door. There will be an LED to show when the door is closed. Look towards the bottom right of the board.

Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDS02SRSS2 start light blinking won't start


I have this same kitchenaid model. It would not start after selecting the wash cycle and pressing start. The light would blink as if the door was open. I did the reset by pushing the sani-rinse, heat dry, sani-rinse, heat-dry and closing the door. You can hear something going on inside. After that stopped (about 3 minutes). I was able to select the wash cycle, press the start, close the door, and it started. Good luck!
