LX30H drains when you push wash. it then either

When I turn the Hobart LX30H dishwasher on it looks like it only partially fills then says it is ready to wash. It then drains when you push wash, then either partially refills and looks like it is ready to wash again or EO code comes up and all water is gone.

    If I wait a while after it says it is ready to wash it will reach 164 degrees F with the same result. Could this problem involve a level sensor?

    i will try the tilt as you suggest. the hobart manual i already have, the manual you link to for troubleshooting and repair is, i think, the wrong manual. it appears that it only deals with a booster. a detailed troubleshooting guide would be fabulous if it were available. thanks.

    you guys have thus far not told me much i was not already aware of but that may be because i didn't provide enough details. today i had the time to really watch the machine mess up an here it is:



    i powered the machine down for an extended period of time and then turned the breaker back on and turned the washer on. it started to fill, the temp climbed to around 150 degrees and then added more water dropping the temp to about 130. instead of the quick wash cycle that usually signals the end of the fill at this point it drains for 5 to 7 seconds then says it is ready to wash. at this time the water level is about 1/2' above the screen. i pressed wash and the machine immediately drains for as long as it usually washes then goes to the rinse cycle (190+ degrees) and then stops like it is ready to wash again. at this time the water level is again just about 1/2" above the screen, basically where it began.



    just to try something different i added water to bring the level to about the height of the screen handle which is normally where it is when the machine is functioning properly. i waited for the temp to climb into the 160 degree range then attempted a wash cycle again. the result was the same, it immediately drained water for roughly as long as the wash cycle usually lasts, rinses properly and leaves the water level just above the screen level.



    any idea what may be causing this malfunction? please help.

Hi,

Turn the circuit breaker off or pull the power plug.Remove the 2 screws on the lower panel in front.Lift up the white plastic cover and you will see a little black disc with a red button in the middle--press this in.That was the high limit for the heater for the wash cycle.To the right you will see another one and on the right of the booster between the side of the cover is another one,press these also,they are for your booster heater.Power up the unit and well go from there,let it sit 20 min to get hot.

Let me know,once done.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

This may be the a problem with the timer. It may be jumping to the wrong setting.

If the fill light flashes, that means the booster is pre-heating. This can take up to 8 minutes.
The OE message is a Fill/Drain error and will remain until you press the off button.
The OE will display if the machine's temperature isn't correct, or if the machine is not level, low water pressure, dirty water sensors inside machine, drain valve is opening or drain solenoid is leaking

www.askanowner.com/_upload/1_2/attachments/LX30H_1.pdf Manual Above. Below is a Service manual, this is what the engineers use to troubleshoot & repair these items, just follow the troubleshooting procedures and you will soon have a working unit.

Select each link, and right click, choose ope, in mew Tab/Window.
It may NOT be your problem below, but it is simply amazing just how many, times this will "Fix" the "Problem"
Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You shouldNEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

Hi.

E0 means that there is a filling related problem because the water temperature does not reach the desired temperature.

When you press wash the machine will drain because water temperature is not reached.

Check water inlet, and disconnect power for five minutes to reset the machine.

If that does not help, then the most common fault is a malfunctioning thermostat. In that case contact hobart, locating the nearest service office. See:Contact Us | Hobart

Here the manual. Errors are detailed at page 14 and on last section of troubleshooting.

LX30H THROWS A CODE EO after running awhile. I hit the high reset button under the flaps on the front for both the boost and reg elements . It will work for a couple cycles and then does the same thing....


Machine won't fill or won't fill high enough. site water pressure meets minimum flow pressures. (LX18, LX30 display shows working.
"E0," "E2," "E3," or "E4". LX40 display shows "DR1 PRBLM," "FILL1 PRBLM," FILL2 PRBLM," or "FILL3 PRBLM". Machine will not run.)

1. Low water pressure - check for clogged hose strainer; check that

2. Make sure probes are clean

3. No water pressure - main water supply valves may not be

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. If problem persists, call your local Hobart
Service Office.

5. Delime machine.

P1 error code on LX30 Hobart


This is a bad sump temperature probe. The unit will function, but will not heat nor display the wash water temperature.

This is a very easy fix. Order Hobart part number 328994 from your nearest Hobart parts dept.

Turn off and drain the unit. Kill the power to the unit at the circuit breaker. Remove the lower front cover. Locate the screw-in temperature probe at the front of the sump. Unplug the sensor from the wiring harness, remove with a 7/16" open end wrench. Screw in the new probe, using teflon tape of the threads, snuggly. It does not need to be super tight. Plug it into the harness, reinstall the front cover, turn the breaker back on, and start up the unit.

TURN THE BREAKER OFF AS EVEN WITH THE UNIT "OFF" THERE WILL BE 120 VOLTS PRESENT AT THE SUMP HEATER (yellow wires) DUE TO ONLY ONE LEG OF POWER BEING SWITCHED OFF!
