Check the temp. of the water in your kitchen sink. If this doesn't get over 120 either the issue is with your waterheater not the dishwasher. You should be able to up the temperature on the water heater.

Raise temp above 120


Raising temperature above 120 degrees requires service call.
Or change dip switch settings and risk voiding warranty and causing service call expense.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html#temperature

Earliest versions of Rheem tankless 2006-8 let you set temperature up to 140 degrees F using remote.
However the hotter setting caused error codes because the burner cannot keep up with both high temperature and large volume of hot water rushing through pipe. Especially in winter with cooler incoming water that must be heated more to reach temperature set point.
The burner simply cannot keep up.
So Rheem changed maximum temperature at remote control to tepid 120 degrees, which is not hot enough for folks wanting hot shower, or folks filling whirlpool tub because water in tub cools before tub fills.

I have a LXiC Hobart dishmachine I do not want to use Sanitizer because my hot water is very hot. How do you disable the sanitizer pump and alarm? H.


Do you realize that to sanitize with hot water alone requires 180 degree F water? I am a hobart technician and I've never seen any business or residence with hot water anywhere near that. Residential hot water is generally approx. 120, Commercial locations generally use approx. 140, but never near 180 (tap water that hot would be a severe safety problem). Hobart LXIH machines use a built in booster heater to boost the temperature of the incoming hot water up to the required 180 deg.

Hobart WM-ID dishwasher doesn't heat water enough to clean dishes


The WM-1D does not have any internal heating devices. You have to supply the machine with the proper water temp. It has two fill valves, one for wash and one for rinse. It should have 150F supplied to the wash fill valve and 180F to the rinse fill valve.

After pressing On - the dishwasher just sits are about 80 degrees and doesn't get any hotter when normally it goes up to about 118. Can we still use it to wash or is something wrong?


A hobart LXIH-3 uses a chemical to sanitize however a 120 degree wash temp is required as well.

Turn up your hot water tank that supplies the dishmachine, make sure your sanitizer is pumping into the rinse cycle using micro-clorine test papers and all is well.

Temp. too hot


First off, the temp adjustment can only be made by a trained service tech, since the dishwasher will need to be reprogrammed to allow for a lower temperature in the rinse cycle but still have the higher temp needed in the wash cycle. Also, since any change in the water temp settings will require a longer wash and rinse cycle to be programmed into the unit.

Of course, you could simply lower the water temp on the water heater that supplies water to this unit, but you'd have lower temp water elsewhere and likely get cited at the next heatlh department inspection on that issue.

Since this is a commercial dishwasher, you might want to reconsider lowering the temp, since health codes and standards for commercial establishments require a MINIMUM water temperarture of 185 degrees F (85 degrees C) for proper operation and to get all the crud off the dishes, etc.

Note, the manufacturer sets these units to the higher temp, 203 degree F (95 degree C) knowing that the water will cool down quickly once the wash cycle starts and the water contacts the dishes, etc. That is also why these units have a added heater element, to help keep the water at the correct temperature needed to both clean AND sanitize the dishes, according to established health standards.

If you really want to change the water temp settings, contact your Hobart service rep and explain the reason you want it lower and see what they say.

Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!

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.

Hobart LX30H washing to hot.


what temp is it washing at. washing should not be the problem. This machine is designed to rinse at 180 degrees + to sanitize dishes. The machine could be converted to a chemical sanitize, it would use bleach in the rinse water instead of 180 degree water to sanitize.
