Programming LX18H for TRUE FILL AND DRAIN
The LX18 series was a compromise machine, the lack of a sump heater causes numerous rinse temperature problems due to it's increased water use (over the sump-heater equipped, fresh water rinse LX30 series).
The LX18H can be reprogrammed for true fill and dump operation. If you still need to do this, please let me know via e-mail or post a reply, otherwise a won't post the long answer!

Hobart LX 30 P2 Error and unit overflowing!
I'm not a Hobart technician, but here what I founded in my manual for the LX30 error message:
LX18 / LX30 display shows E0, E2, E3 or E4
1. Low water pressure - check for clogged hose strainer; check that site water pressure meets minimum flow pressures.
2. Make sure probes are clean
3. No water pressure - main water supply valves may not be working
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.
Hope it will help you.
How much delime agent should I use to clean the
Depending on how often you delime the dishwasher use 2 cups.The delime light will come on after 1000 cycles set from factory default.If the delime icon is lit and beeps,turn the unit off.
Push and hold the delime/wash button and on button for 5 seconds and youll be in delime mode.
The unit will fill and heat up and display "add delime".Open the door add the delime and press the wash button.The dishwasher will run for 5 minutes then rinse and drain twice then shut off.When you turn it back on the delime icon will be gone.I'm a hobart tech and repair these dishwasher often,any questions let me know and please rate me,Thanks.

The p2 code is your rinse thermistor is bad,if you gain access in the back on the top right side you will see a probe with 2 wires going into the rinse piping.Use a 7/16 wrench and unscrew.Very easy to replace.When the machine goes into the rinse cycle the temp display goes up/down?The part is about $60.Part # 328994.I'm a hobart tech any ? let me know and please rate me.
After pressing On - the dishwasher just sits are
A hobart LXIH-3 uses a chemical to sanitize however a 120 degree wash temp is required as well.
Turn up your hot water tank that supplies the dishmachine, make sure your sanitizer is pumping into the rinse cycle using micro-clorine test papers and all is well.
