I am renting a house and we just got a ge dishwasher. It overheated to the point where it caught a plastic cup on fire. Now my landlord told me it was caused by the cup. Well common sense tells me there are causes and effects. He tried to tell me that there is a thermocouple in it and it shut the pump off. Wrong that would be the motor overloads. The thermocouple/thermostat is what controls things that have to do with heat so the thermostat would have shut off the heating element so I would say there is a problem with the thermostat. In my situation and probably in yours. good luck though

Is it the wash or rinse? in either case there are two temperature probes in the tanks check to see if they are dirty if not then you may have control board problems. if you are not familiar with this type of equipment then you should probrably call a service company.

WE LOST OUR MANUAL AT WORK AND HOBART LXH DISHWASHER KEEPS SHOWING DELIME , HOW CAN GET THIS GO AWAY, THANKS


Use a commercial deliming agent (like Lime Away or LSR). Remove the rack from the dishwasher and close the door. Press Off to power down the machine. Next press and hold Wash (Delime) while pressing ON. Delime should show in the display. The unit will fill with water and then flash Add and Delime. Open the door and add the deliming agent according to the directions. (The sump holds about 3 gallons of water.) Close the door and press Wash (Delime). The machine will start the wash mode for 5 minutes and then do two rinse and drain cycles. Delime symbol will flash while this takes place. When finished, the power to the control will be turned off. Check the interior of the machine for lime deposits. If needed, repeat the delime cycle. If the delime program is interrupted before it is completed, then start the delime process from the beginning.

The manuals and other documents are available to registered users of the Hobart site here: https://feg.hobartcorp.com/CookieAuth.dll?GetLogon?curl=Z2FresourcecenterZ2Fdefault.aspx&reason=0&formdir=2 . The direct link is: hobart.co.kr/install_pdf/040.pdf .

The spec sheet is available here: http://www.hobartcorp.com/products/warewashing/undercounters/lxi-undercounter/ .

I hope this helps.

E5 error - need to know where drain hoses are


tried to take off the drain hose, but could not get it off the back, only by the disposal. I turned if off and on about 6 times and ran the delime cycle with lots of limeaway. It got the E5 error on the delime cycle, but it worked the next time I tried to run it.
The manual does say to turn it off and on as it drains out the water. Takes a while as it has to heat up the water each time.

Dish washer over filling?


The first thing you should do is clean the level probes in the unit. There are two probes sticking through the back of the unit and the water completes a circuit between these two telling the machine when it is full. If they are clean, you may have a faulty sensor or wiring.
