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

My tcl split ac works for 5 min, then gives e5 code.


E5 s a communication error between the indoor and outdoor units. It is stated in the service manual that the wiring between the indoor and outdoor has probably separated at one end of the terminal block. Most of the time however, it is usually a failure of either the indoor or outdoor electronic boards. A multimeter and knowledge of how to read "communications voltages is required. The machine will continually assess itself electronically to make sure all components are working properly. If after a given amount of attempts to communicate with the outdoor unit the machine still cant "talk" to the other 1/2 , it will show an E5 error and shut itself down. You could try switching off the power at the isolator or meter box for at LEAST 15 minutes and then turn back on to see if it resets. This sometimes works. Do not, just switch off and switch straight back on again.

Unit will not switch from hot to cold


check hoses connections- hot to hot and cold to cold at both ends. If not ok, check if you are setting the machine correctly. These days washing in cold water is effective.

My Maytag Neptune MAH8700AWW washer when in the spin dry mode shuts down with a suds error?


Check your drain hose for kinks or blockages, check filter and pump for blockages, check wire harness connections to pump, pressure switch and CCU.
I machine will start- If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/ Spin cycle then a Normal cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.

Unit shuts off, getting an E5 error. sounds like there is a lot of water inside. the customer service numbers for Windchaser are disconnected. PLEASE HELP!!!!


E5 is the fault code for Compressor overheat/malfunction it coulb be caused by the exhaust hose being too long or kinked, remove the exhaust hose and run the unit for an hour and see if your problem goes away, if so re-route the exhaust hose, if not you need to contact the manufacture

Whirlpool washing machine will wash but will stop and not drain or rinse


Hi!!
In order for the high speed spinning (rinse) cycle to begin, the lid must be shut. If your unit is top load, the problem is more likely the lid switch. or the tab on the lid that activates the switch is broken. If the tab is OK, disconnect unit from power outlet, remove back panel and trace the two wires going to the switch, once located, use a piece of wire to jump the two together, reconnect unit to power outlet and set the knob to rinse cycle, if unit works, replace switch.
Good Luck!!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Machine will not spin or drain water.


I have a problem with my MW512AU. Sometimes it drains after wash cycle, but sometimes it sticks when it goes to spin, doesn't get up to speed, water comes on for about 10 seconds and shuts off, and it tries to spin again. If I hit the wash progress switch it goes directly to final spin and works ok. I then have to run a 2nd wash cycle to rinse the clothes. I also noticed a buzzing sound when I turn on the power point, which lasts about 3 seconds before stopping. It will come back on every 3-4 minutes for 30 seconds. This is with the machine power switch off. It powers on normally.
