SOURCE: Hobart LX 18 problem
You are having a problem with the fill valve. If the unit fills AT ALL, with the power off, the fill valve is the issue.
It is a gold color valve behind the front kick panel. It has a large castle-like cap. Sometimes debris is the cause of your failure. (50/50). Turn off the water, and just take it apart slowly and pay attention to the plunger and spring. Take out the diaphram and screen, and clean it. There should be just one small hole in the diaphram. If cleaning doesn't help, you need to buy a rebuild kit. If you get the "ML" off the data plate, I can get you the kit P/N.

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.

It's likely that the drain pump diverter valve is not closing
completely, as you've guessed. If you remove the front panel, you should
be able to access the pump assembly. First, try to move the diverter
valve manually to see if it's stuck. Second, try to move it from one
side of the chamber to the other without obstructions. If you can't,
you'll need to remove the pump assembly to check it for foreign
materials.the drain valve serves the purpose of diverting the pump water /
pressure to either the drain hose or wash arms, depending on what
position it is in
Check that the valve is opening.

SOURCE: I have a PD code
PD is not an error code. It shows that when it draining water out shortly after power-up and when shutting down. If it seems to be showing "PD" longer than usual, it means the dishwasher's control circuitry believes there is still water in the tank, due to a faulty water level probe, most like the one under the lift-out screen. It has a plastic body with a metal probe coming out the center.
There is also a dual probe at the rear of the machine, but I believe the dishwasher uses the front probe to determine when to stop draining the machine during "PD" - most likely meaning "Power Drain" or "Power Draining".
If you are not seeing any E- codes (E1, E2, E3, etc.) then these water level probes are likely just fine and the "PD" is appearing normally, as it should during draining conditions.
