Question about Hobart Lx30h Commercial Dishwasher
My dishwasher won't fill properly. Checked line pressure, (it is 42 PSI), replaced fill sensor (back R. corner), checked screens on supply line (clear) still doesn't fill properly (doesn't even come up to the sensor level) and gives me an E4 with the "wrench" symbol. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: only wants to fill
There are two possible reasons for the situation as you describe it:
1. Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.
2. Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.
If you are mechanically inclined you can repair either of these but if you are not you will have to hire it done. Now that you know it is one of two problems you can tell the repairman ahead of time and get a price on the repair. Then shop around for the best price.

This is what I found for the E4 code...hope this helps...and thanks for rating my effort...The Fang.
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
5. Delime machine.

E-2 error is a fill problem. Water did not reach the lower probe within the time out. (innitial fill only
1- Is the bottom probe clean?
2- No fill water (check valve, hose,fill screen in end of hose, and fill source.)
3- low water pressure, should be 20 PSI flow.
4- Fuse 1FU blown.
5- Check wiring to fill valve.
6- Check relay board function.

Water is not to top sensor in alotted time.
Top sensor is in right rear corner, and is the upper of the two. Check the connector to the probe on the outside at the back. (sometimes gets wet fro vacuum breaker leaking when dirty or low flow pressure. Machine needs 20 psi flow rate
