SOURCE: water fills up dishwasher after complete maybe a day or two later

Sound like the hot water sonenoid is stuck in the open position. Locate this solenoid and tap it lightly with a small hammer while the hot water is open. If it does not stop it will beneficial to have this part replaced. I hope this will help.

SOURCE: pressure release keeps draining hot water

The 1/2" drain line you are referring to is probably the 3/4" line from the booster heater located to the left of the pump motor. The temperature/pressure relief valve is bad.

The booster heater could be overheating (bad thermostat), or you may not have an expansion tank on your building hot water system. The heating and explanding water in the booster has no where to expand to, causing a pressure spike high enough to pop the valve.

First, change the valve. I use a heavier-duty Watts XL40 valve, I purchase them from International Commercial Supply or Johnstone. Even if there is a cause for them to leak, once they start leaking they need to be replaced.

Once the new valve is in, power up and test the unit. Power up and fill the unit, then let the booster recover until it cycles off. Run a cycle, and check your rinse temperature. I like to see 190-192 degrees. If it went higher than 195 I'd turn the thermostat down. If it didn't shut off at all, and the relief blew, time to replace the thermostats in the booster heater.

SOURCE: Water sloshes out the bottom of the door to my

this is usually a problem with the float.

at the bottom there is a small round plastic part that moves up and down. When it is up, the washer knows that it is full. when it is down, the washer knows that it is empty.

yours is probably stuck in the down position.

usually I find that this is because the float is full of grease and junk.

mostly they are of the air-trap variety. they are open on the bottom and trap a bubble of air underneath them. If the float is full of grease, then it won't trap enough air to float. reach under with your finger and scoop out any grease.

if you don't see any grease, or it isn't open underneath, check for holes that migh be letting air out, or water in.

if it's broken, you can lift it manually (and wedge something under it) and that will at least pump it out so you can fix the float.

Don't run it very long in that condition or you will have other problems, but you can run it until it drains out.

Water not heating up


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
will not run on cold water or even luke warm water, it has to be hot water. Most will even specify 120F or hotter water temp as incoming water. These new units only use 1.5-3 gallons of water for each fill, so the temp has to be there. Many brands recommend that you run your kitchen sink water until it gets hot, then start filling your dishwasher, we also recommend that. Some dishwashers will stop if it senses too cold of water coming in, others will try to warm the water and if it can't in so much time, the unit will stop and give an error code. Hot water also helps dissolve and mix the soap detergent better, giving you better washing results. Just make sure the water is hot going into your dishwasher, no getting around it.

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.

Do all Hobart dishwashers have a element in them for wash water and rinse water


All Hobart dishwashers will have a wash tank heating element, but the rinse water is not heated by the dishwasher, unless it has a built-in booster heater. Usually a separate booster heater is used to heat rinse water to 180-190 deg. F for hot water sanitation.

Rinse not hot enough


145 degree is just your hot water temp and that your dishwasher hot water booster is not working assuming that this machine has worked in the past to produce final rinse water above 180 degrees. Remove the bottom panel and to the right you will see the booster tank, look for a nickel size component with a small red button on it. Try pushing on it to reset it. If that does not work, check for voltage at your heating element on your booster tank. (the thicker wires) If voltage is present then your heating elements need replacing.
