Question about Hobart 24 in. LXIH-3 Built-in Dishwasher
Our LXIH-3 Commercial Under Counter Dishwasher randomly fills up with water to the point that it will spill out and onto the floor. This typically will happen when it has not been used in a while & fills up while in the OFF mode. We typically then turn it ON, let it cycle through the start up process, then turn it OFF like normal. The water drains out like it should, but then we will check it a couple days later & the inside will be full of water again. The place we bought it from suggests replacing the solenoid valve. Does anyone have any thoughts about this one?
If your unit fills with the power OFF, 99% of the time it is a bad fill solenoid, OR DEBRIS in the solenoid. But before replacing it, I recommend inspecting it.
The fill valve is in the front area behind the kick panel. It has a large brass cap with little notches on it. Turn off the water and inspect the valve for debris. If you take it apart slowly, and catch the plunger and spring, it is easy. The only trick is having a pair of channel locks big enough to remove the cap!
Good luck. Mike
