DeLime light and detergents not flowing into dishwasher

The DeLime light will not disappear even after I have a solution to cure this problem thru the dishwasher. Also it will not draw detergent or rinse agent. We have checked the lines and they are not plugged. We also are using the recommended detergent for this dishwasher.

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.

The hobart lxih is stuck in delime.

To reset or clear delime message, on control board there are 3 buttons. from power off, drawer open, manget on door switch, door closed, hold PROG on board and press the ON key on keyboard. pressing select moves to next poption, up arrow increases setting. step through select until you see delime, settings for LXi are de for disabled, and 1 through 65= x100 cycles. rg if set at 5, after 500 cycles the message apears. To keep the settings and clear the message a delime sequence needs to be run precisely as described.


With machine off, remove rack , close door, press and hold wash/delime key and press ON. Delime will be lit on display, release wash/delime key, and let machine fill. you should then see ADD and DELIME on the display, open the door and add the delime agent following supplier's instructions precisely. close the door, press wash, delime will flash. After delime is complete power is turned off. Inspect the machine and repeat if necessary.

Dishwasher says delime on screen, how do i do this?.


You need to buy a calcium lime remover/lime remover and if you can see a bad lime deposit then please buy a stronger delime.You need to put the delime in the unit and run it through a cycle.Repaet this procedure more than once to get optimum results & get rid of the scale. Also try and delime it once in a month or two so that this doesn't happen in future.

Please rate this solution.
