I doubt that the user manual covers de-liming the Hobart Dishwasher.   If I owned this (fine, expensive) dishwasher, this is what I would do.
1.) Discard any generic, ultra-cheap detergent.  Stop using gels or tablets and only use powders.  Buy a box of brand name powder (like Electrosol or Cascade)  You will be amazed how much difference that will make because the newest generics have mineral bulk added that build up faster then hard water does on both the stainless steel enclosure plus the silverware and even plates.  White patches.  I LOVE generic products and saving money, but low end dishwasher powder is one place I no longer choose a generic product.
2.) Add two cups of white vinegar to the empty dishwasher and leave it there until the morning.  Run a quick cycle with no detergent added.  The vinegar will be pumped out immediately after you begin this quick cycle.
3.) As soon as the dishwasher fills with water during that quick cycle and begins a wash cycle, add two cups of white vinegar and close the door and allow to run the full wash cycle.
4.) When the dishwasher finishes the drain cycle and begins to fill again, open the dishwasher and check the enclosure for remaining "lime" deposits.  If they remain, keep adding 2 cups white vinegar each time the dishwasher refills and begins to wash/rinse again.
You should be delighted with the results. Long term, you should consider adding a whole house water softener and then reduce the amount of dishwasher (and laundry) detergent by one half.  Amazing increase in quality of life by adding a water softener.  You will be delighted.
Please post back with you results, OK?  Good Luck!

    Did the white vinegar do the trick? Any advice for others that may read this later?

Hobart am15 scrolls message drain and de-lime with a constant beeping??


It may have reached the number of cycles to trigger a delime warning. Either follow the procedure in your operator manual to delime, or go into the control board settings and either change or turn off the delime timer

WE LOST OUR MANUAL AT WORK AND HOBART LXH DISHWASHER KEEPS SHOWING DELIME , HOW CAN GET THIS GO AWAY, THANKS


Use a commercial deliming agent (like Lime Away or LSR). Remove the rack from the dishwasher and close the door. Press Off to power down the machine. Next press and hold Wash (Delime) while pressing ON. Delime should show in the display. The unit will fill with water and then flash Add and Delime. Open the door and add the deliming agent according to the directions. (The sump holds about 3 gallons of water.) Close the door and press Wash (Delime). The machine will start the wash mode for 5 minutes and then do two rinse and drain cycles. Delime symbol will flash while this takes place. When finished, the power to the control will be turned off. Check the interior of the machine for lime deposits. If needed, repeat the delime cycle. If the delime program is interrupted before it is completed, then start the delime process from the beginning.

The manuals and other documents are available to registered users of the Hobart site here: https://feg.hobartcorp.com/CookieAuth.dll?GetLogon?curl=Z2FresourcecenterZ2Fdefault.aspx&reason=0&formdir=2 . The direct link is: hobart.co.kr/install_pdf/040.pdf .

The spec sheet is available here: http://www.hobartcorp.com/products/warewashing/undercounters/lxi-undercounter/ .

I hope this helps.

If you kill the power to the dishwasher from your circuit breaker then turn the breaker back on then turn the dishwasher on does it work ok?If not i would suspect the control board is acting up or is wet.

You will need a delimer. This is typically a liquid chemical purchased from your chemical supplier. Personally, I like Lime-Away from Ecolab

Leaky door


o.k. i think i can help you.look inside and remove the screens.you will see the heater and to the left of it are 2 sensors,clean them with a light grit sandpaper or emory cloth also there are 2 more that are on the right side back wall of the tank clean as well.unscrew the top and bottom wash arms with a pair of channelocks or pliers.inspect the seams of the wash arms and look for cracks or seperation.if they are they need to be replaced (this can cause the problem 50% of the time).those sensors tell the control board where the water level is at all times,if those sensors are dirty or malfunctioning the dishwasher will do all kinds of things.do you delime the unit?if not get clr (calcium lime rust) remover.you can buy at home depot,lowes,supermarkets,turn the dishwasher on,let fill and pour a cup of clr then run a cycle.deliming the unit keeps the sensors and tank clean.it could be a couple other things but try these first and let me know.
