Programming LX18H for TRUE FILL AND DRAIN

We manually add detergent to our HOBART LX-18H and need to reprogram the unit for TRUE FILL & DRAIN. The operator's manual does not provide any clue as to how to program this option. Can anyone shed some guidance please?

Thanks.

    Rob-OES,

    Please send me instructions. We're a non-profit organization and my budget will not allow me to pay HOBART several hundred dollars for a service call.

    My email is
    tcweeks at embarqmail dot com

    change the "at" and "dot" as appropriate.
    Thanks!

The LX18 series was a compromise machine, the lack of a sump heater causes numerous rinse temperature problems due to it's increased water use (over the sump-heater equipped, fresh water rinse LX30 series).

The LX18H can be reprogrammed for true fill and dump operation. If you still need to do this, please let me know via e-mail or post a reply, otherwise a won't post the long answer!

(I worked for Hobart as a service tech. from 1994 until 1999, and have been independent since then)

Hobart dish machine. We were told by Ecolab tech that we need to rinse off all presoak, soaps and sanitizers before passing through the maching as they cause foaming/excess suds. I do not find that info...


That's true. excess of foam can cause poor wash pressure and poor final rinse.

Operation manual , pag.24. (F17791Rv02-06.pdf)
DO NOT exceed chemical manufacturer's recommended concentrations for detergent, sanitizer, rinse aid or lime scale remover.

How much delime agent should I use to clean the system in a Hobart LXI-H?


Depending on how often you delime the dishwasher use 2 cups.The delime light will come on after 1000 cycles set from factory default.If the delime icon is lit and beeps,turn the unit off.

Push and hold the delime/wash button and on button for 5 seconds and youll be in delime mode.

The unit will fill and heat up and display "add delime".Open the door add the delime and press the wash button.The dishwasher will run for 5 minutes then rinse and drain twice then shut off.When you turn it back on the delime icon will be gone.I'm a hobart tech and repair these dishwasher often,any questions let me know and please rate me,Thanks.

E4 error after attempting to fill and get to temp


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
OFF-ON procedure.
5. Delime machine.
