Greetings cad9Woody,

ENERGY STAR qualified dishwashers typically use one- third less water than non-qualified models. The average ENERGY STAR qualified model uses about 4 gallons of water per cycle while the non qualified model uses about 6 gallons of water per cycle. You can also save water by prescraping your dishes.

As far as the size of water heater you need, that would depend on your family size and a variety of variables, such as how often you wash clothes, dishes, and shower.

Commercial dishwasher needs a repair. The water heater booster rusted out, leaks and needs to be replaced with a new unit. Need a repair company that works with the State.


You can order a new booster heater.... I would just need the size of the booster heater itself in order to price you one.... What state are you talking about? Susan Restaurant Equipment Outlet 888-542-5959

Ive got a flashing clean light and the dishwasher won't run. Is there a reset button or a common part that causes this problem?


Flashing clean light on a Whirlpool dishwasher is a heater malfunction (sorta) this failure code is generated when the unit does not sense a 5 degree rise in water temperature with in 15 seconds (give or take depending on model) some of the earlier models could show code under certain circumstances such as incoming water to cold.

With control off alternately press high temp scrub and heated dry till all the lights flash on and it will go into a diagnostic mode hit cancel/drain button twice and retry using the dishwasher if the code persists try running Your kitchen sink until water is hot then running the dishwasher if the code comes up again begin inspecting the heater in bottom of wash tub for damage or signs of shorting also pull out from under the counter to inpect wiring to the heater, if these look good test the safety cutoff towards the front bottom of the unit small black and silver button sized componant with two wires to it for continuity.

Still ok remove the thermistor from bottom of pump and clean it and test the ohms according to the tech sheet on the back of the toe panel on front of dishwasher, if this is ok test run the dishwasher with a high temp scrub option selected and test voltage to the heater at the two connectors directly at the heater if there is no voltage and You have properly checked the previous items the control has a bad heater relay and will require replacement.

I have beko dishwasher works fine but no hot water is it just the element which needs replacing or could it another problem MODEL DWD4310S


How far is your water heater from your dishwasher. I knew someone who had to get a circulating pump. His dishwasher was so far form the water heater so when the dishwasher would fill, it used the cold water that is sitting in the pipes and by the time the hot water got there, the dishwasher didn't need any more water. the pump will keep the water circulating back and forth to and from the hto water heater. Or you an get one of those electric small heaters that heat on the spot as well.

No problem, just looking for gal. per minute flow rate


It uses 1.2 gallons for each wash or rinse action in a cycle.  The water only runs until the 1.2 gallons amount is reached and then that water recycles through the pump for the duration of the action.  Start the dishwasher and time how long it takes until the water stops filling (not the entire time of the action).  Divide 1.2 by the number of minutes including seconds as a decimal fraction (i.e. 1 minute and 30 seconds = 1.5 minutes) to get the flow rate in gallons per minute (GPM).

Hobart lx 18 warewasher what hatco booster heater product compatable with it


The answer to this question will be based on the incoming water temperature that is supplied to the booster heater. The standard sizing for a booster heater is based off of a 40 degree F rise (140 degree F incoming water temperature) or a 70 degree F rise (110 degree F incoming water temperature). For a 40 degree F rise, a Hatco model C-5, S-5, or PMG-60 will supply the needed amount of rinse water for the LX-18 Hobart dishwasher. A 70 degree F rise would require a Hatco model C-9, S-9, or PMG-60 to supply the same Hobart model number.
