Question about Hobart 24 in. LXIC-5 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

LXGH E5 Code

Customer has an LXGH that shuts down on E5. The unit goes through wash normally, switches to rinse, switches back to wash, then shuts down on E5.

The unit fills normally, has 15 PSIG water pressure from the building during fill.

Pulled the drain valve for inspection - nothing. Drain valve cycles normally and does not leak.

Is this actually a fill problem ?

    I appreciate the response, but it's a moot point now.



    The customer has had enough problems with this unit, and when I returned to the site the LXGH was nowhere to be seen, and there was a new Jackson unit in place of the LXGH.



    I asked what happened, and the response was "don't worry about that Hobart unit, it's going to the dump. See accounts payable for your check, and thanks for trying.".



    Some folks have short fuses.

I need to check my codes to be positive. And I'll check them this weekend. But, I believe E5 is from excess water in the unit, and so it won't go into rinse and add more water.

First and most common -- the drain hose, at the back of the unit is kinked. The unit gets pushed back against the wall and kinks the line.

Second, your probes are dirty. The ones in the back right corner detect water level. Clean them with a green scrungee even if they look clean.

Good luck - Mike

Error code e01


do the following steps: God bless you
To start test program, press and hold both POWER SCRUB PLUS and RINSE & HOLD program buttons, then turn unit on by pressing ON/OFF button. When program buttons are released, lights above them will flash. To end test program, press ON/OFF button.To check program indicator lights (POWER SCRUB PLUS, REGULAR WASH and RINSE & HOLD), press and hold each program button. When REGULAR WASH program button is pressed, CLEAN light also comes on.
To start testing, press both POWER SCRUB PLUS and RINSE & HOLD buttons a second time. When testing has ended and a fault was detected, the following indicator lights will be lit:
POWER SCRUB PLUS = Heater fault
REGULAR WASH = Water filling fault (over or under filling)
RINSE & HOLD = NTC (temperature sensor) fault ? note circulation motor stops shortly after it started during an NTC fault
To check for heater, high limit or flow switch problems, start testing until heating starts. Using a meter with a current coil, measure current going into dishwasher. If current is ~ 11 A, then heater, high limit and flow switch are OK. If current stays at ~ 1.5-2 A, then heater, high limit or flow switch are faulty.
If water level switch (f1) has failed (opened), REGULAR WASH light will come on and unit will continually fill and drain where testing won't be completed. If flow switch (e5) has failed (opened), water won't heat (to 150?F) and water won?t stop circulating. If NTC probe (f2/f4) has failed (opened), RINSE & HOLD light will come on immediately and testing will end shortly after water has started circulating.
If more than one fault occurs, more than one light will be lit.

Kenmore dishwasher model #665 15872000 is stuck on time saver option for washing and I can't get it to switch to any of the other options such as normal wash


Similar Kenmore Dishwasher 665.18664000. Time saver and Quick rinse were the only programs that would run. I pressed "high temp scrub" then "air dry" then "high temp scrub" then "air dry" and the machine went into a diagnostic mode and counted down from 10 while running a series of tests. After about 10 minutes and various test cycles the machine reset and the "normal wash" light had come back on. If this doesn't work then you may have a problem with the controller which other threads have mentioned replacing yourself for about $120.

How long is the light wash cycle suppossed to run and does the options cycle need to be run too? i have put my machine on light cycle and it runs back and forth from sensing to wash .. stops and goes back...


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Yes it is normal. The length of the cycle depends on the water temperature entering the unit and the options selected. The unit has a sensor that checks the water constantly until it is clean. A normal cycle on this unit with options selected can last two hours. And stopping the unit and opening the door extends the time also.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

E5 comes up when running wash cycle


in this case e5 means too much water in the machine when it is supposed to rinse.

these machines have either a solenoid opperated drain valve or a drain pump.

could be a kinked or pluged drain hose. check this by removing the drain hose (probably red) from the drain it attaches to (probably under a sink)

put the hose in the sink or bucket and wait for it to drain, drain should be fairly powerful (hold the hose and be careful the water is hot)

if the hose is not kinked and little or no water comes out you have likley have an obstructed drain valve or a broken pump or solenoid.

at this point i would call in the pros, or you can try to fix it yourself then curse and wish you had called the pros.

good luck

Blinking lights on Front Panel


I've finally tracked down the manual and it the fault code is as follows

"Indicates a fault in the heater or in the thermistor"

You can go into a fault tracing mode by pushing the "Rinse Hold" button five times within 15 seconds. The first, third, fifth and seventh lights will flash when in this mode and you can test the following parts by pressing the corresponding button. I'm going to try the heater test below and assume that if that works the fault must be with the Thermistor. The other tests could be useful for other faults.

User manual found here

Rinse Hold - tests detergent solenoid, detergent flaps open after about 60sec

Pots & Pans - tests Rinse Aid Solenoid, rinse aid will flow down door

Normal Wash - tests water inlet valve, water can be heard entering

Light Wash - tests ventilator solenoid, there will be a click followed by a rattling noise

Quick Wash - tests the heater, the element heats up, WARNING don’t touch element HOT

Temp - tests circulation pump, the pump starts

Dry - test outlet pump, the pump starts

Manual says to push 55 and 65 degree button to exit, I have no idea where those are so will probably just switch off at wall to reset.

Hope this helps someone. I rang ASKO and they said they didn’t know what the fault code meant so either they can’t read or their service sucks, probably a bit of both!

None use for 7 days


I have a fisher paykel dd603 dishwasher. If I select the normal wash setting on the top drawer, it posts the time in the lcd screen as 56 mins. The unit will wash as usual until it reaches the 28 min mark. At this point it will stay on 28 mins and continue to run, but it won't rinse or empty the drawer of water. Also it never counts down below the 28 min mark. It has flashed a F4 and F1 code. I've cleared them both, and checked to make sure that no water is standing on the bottom of the unit, and that the heating element is working. I should mention that the top drawer did overflow about two weeks ago, and that I did clean up the water. I don't know where to look from here. Any suggestions?
