The 1/2" drain line you are referring to is probably the 3/4" line from the booster heater located to the left of the pump motor. The temperature/pressure relief valve is bad.

The booster heater could be overheating (bad thermostat), or you may not have an expansion tank on your building hot water system. The heating and explanding water in the booster has no where to expand to, causing a pressure spike high enough to pop the valve.

First, change the valve. I use a heavier-duty Watts XL40 valve, I purchase them from International Commercial Supply or Johnstone. Even if there is a cause for them to leak, once they start leaking they need to be replaced.

Once the new valve is in, power up and test the unit. Power up and fill the unit, then let the booster recover until it cycles off. Run a cycle, and check your rinse temperature. I like to see 190-192 degrees. If it went higher than 195 I'd turn the thermostat down. If it didn't shut off at all, and the relief blew, time to replace the thermostats in the booster heater.

LX30H THROWS A CODE EO after running awhile. I hit the high reset button under the flaps on the front for both the boost and reg elements . It will work for a couple cycles and then does the same thing....


Machine won't fill or won't fill high enough. site water pressure meets minimum flow pressures. (LX18, LX30 display shows working.
"E0," "E2," "E3," or "E4". LX40 display shows "DR1 PRBLM," "FILL1 PRBLM," FILL2 PRBLM," or "FILL3 PRBLM". Machine will not run.)

1. Low water pressure - check for clogged hose strainer; check that

2. Make sure probes are clean

3. No water pressure - main water supply valves may not be

4. Drain valve open - turn machine OFF to drain machine, then
ON. Repeat twice (this assists in clearing any drain valve
obstructions). Wait for machine to reach READY mode and
press WASH. Slowly open door several seconds later and note
water level. Close door; 30 seconds later, open door slowly and
check that water level is the same as it was. If not, repeat the
OFF-ON procedure. If problem persists, call your local Hobart
Service Office.

5. Delime machine.

My dishwasher isn't draining. The garbage disposal is hooked up separately.


Is sink drain line clogged?
Disconnect drain line at sink tailpiece and lower down to see if water inside dishwasher drains.

Machine will not hold water. Drains slowley after each cycle.


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter.

Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.


First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Winterizing a LXIH Hobart dish washer


Joe - The main issue is that the builtin booster heater is full of water - it has to be drained - there may be a small drain plug (square-shaped head), if not, you may have to pull loose the heater element to drain the tank. I would pour antifreeze solution in there and also in the wash tank. Unhook the water inlet - you say the machine is hard-plumbed in but mfgr recommends using brauided water hose to connect to water supply. hopefully this helps - I service commercial machines and came across your question and maybe you can ansqwer one of mine - how do I cancel the "delime" indicator? I can't find operators manual. jimmy.

Water to dishwasher not hot enough


The 737 model could run on even lower temperature (80F). Given time, the unit will heat up the water. the trick is to give it time.

That model is made for commercial use, not really for residential. It will not fully drain every cycles. The important thing to keep in mind is to empty the dishwasher (turn it off, pull the stand-pipe out, and drain) every night and left empty. When you want to use the unit, put the plug back in and turn it on, wait 20 to 30 minutes and it should be ready.

Hobart LT 1 dishwasher leaving film on dishes


The machine is seldom the cause of "film". Make sure the unit is draining proper and that the fresh water supply is supplying good pressure.

Usually film is caused by using residential soap in a commercial unit. The commercial unit cycle is too short for residential soaps to dissolve and work properly. So soap ends up in your rinse water.

DISHWASHER WONT DRAIN


Have you checked the drain hose??? It may be clogged to some degree or where it meets either the garbage disposal or t-tailpiece, whichever you have, or where it comes out of the water pump. Also, the impeller inside the water pump might look good but may be worn, and check for broken glass which is hard to see in the bottom drain area at the grate. Hope this helps.
