Question about Hobart 29 in. AM15-1 Free-Standing Dishwasher

Motor heats up ( to touch )

This happens after running Hobart commercial dishwasher (church use)
after half hour or more continues use for two or three hour event. Do we need a new motor? Don't have model # handy right now. There is also a slight electrical smell.

What is the meaning of transport blocked in Hobart Dishwasher?

I assume you are referring to a commercial rack dishwasher rather than domestic? Transport blocked means either the conveyor has jammed and twisted the cut out switch on the motor or the table end switch is activated or faulty.

Hobart LXIH stuck in Wash mode after running multiple loads. Shutting off breaker for several hours fixes problem until multiple loads have been run again and then it is once more stuck in Wash mode.

How long does it stay in the wash cycle? Indefinitely? Does the display continuously show "WASH"?. If it stays in the wash cycle indefinitely (i.e. continuously shows "WASH" for significantly beyond approx. 3 minutes), it's probably a control board malfunction. If it continues to wash after the "WASH" indicator goes out, it could be a shorted wash motor relay on the relay board or a fauly control board.

If the internal rinse water booster heater doesn't reach it's programmed setpoint temperature in time, the dishwasher will run an extended wash cycle to give the booster heater more time to finish heating the rinse water. If this is what's happening, the wash cycle would last approximately 3 minutes, then it would rinse regardless of whether the booster heater has finished heating or not.

The booster temperature thermistor may be bad, giving a false booster temperature reading, causing an extended wash cycle as described above. The booster heater elements or contactor may be bad, preventing the booster heater from heating and reaching proper temperature, also causing the same extended wash cycle to give the booster more time to heat.

Need to convert 3 phase Hobart dishwasher to single phase

It will not be inexpensive to convert your dishmachine over to three phase. With everything that you will need to replace, depending on the model if converyor or not it may run close to what it costs to have 3phase run to the building that you plan to move into.

This dishwasher is older than most living people in this business. It works great except it is a 208 three phase unit. It is in St.Peter's church in New York Mills, MN. We bought it used during our remodel...

Your AM9 is too old to get new parts from Hobart.
Why does the inverter need to run when the machine is not in use? There must be a breaker to turn it off.
If you decide to replace it, any AM series will fit your tables. Don't buy anything older than AM14.
