Question about Hobart 24 in. LXIH-3 Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Hobart LXIH won't complete delime cycle. Enters delime mode and executes the delime cycle properly until about a minute or so into the rinse phase. Machine shuts off abruptly with E5 code mostly, sometimes E4 code. Changed the control board, didn't solve the problem. The LXIH runs the normal wash/rinse cycle every time without any problems. This is a nearly new machine that actually don't need delimed, planning on selling it and it must work perfectly. I know some would program the delime notification to off and the new owner would probably never know until they tried to delime the machine months or years in the future.

SOURCE: 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.

DO NOT MIX DELIME ACID, RINSE AGENTS OR OTHER ACID WITH BLEACH PRODUCTS, OR HAZAEDOUS GASES WILL FORM.

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.
DO NOT LEAVE THE ACID IN ANY LONGER THAN RECOMMEDED.

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.

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.

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.

Ppur a full cup of apple cider vinegar into the empty dishwasher and run it for the full cycle. Then run it again with nothing in it. This will delime your machine beautifully.
