DeLime light and detergents not flowing into dishwasher

The DeLime light will not disappear even after I have a solution to cure this problem thru the dishwasher. Also it will not draw detergent or rinse agent. We have checked the lines and they are not plugged. We also are using the recommended detergent for this dishwasher.

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.

Soap residue on glasses, dishes & flatware...what can I do..I use Cascade & JetDry


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Vinegar or lemon juice
  • Gel dishwasher detergent
  1. dishwashers have a rinse aid dispenser. If your dishwasher has this dispenser, fill it up periodically and it will release the appropriate amount of rinse aid automatically at the right time during the wash cycle. This will help your dishes rinse more cleanly.
  2. Rinse aid in solid form
    Some older dishwashers or basic models do not have an automatic rinse aid dispenser. In this case, you can buy rinse aid in solid form that attaches to your dishwasher rack. Solid rinse aid can be hard to find in stores because it is not commonly used, but it can be purchased online.
  3. Vinegar or lemon juice
    Appliance repairmen will tell you that one of the common problems they see with dishwashers is the buildup of excess detergent. If there is too much detergent in your dishwasher, your dishes will not rinse cleanly, no matter how good the dishwasher is or how much rinse aid you use. To clean the excess detergent that has built up inside your dishwasher, put 3 tablespoons of vinegar or lemon juice (concentrate is fine) in the empty dishwasher and run the dishwasher through a complete cycle with no dishes. Do this twice, for two complete cycles of the empty dishwasher with only vinegar or lemon juice added. The acid in the vinegar or lemon juice will break up the detergent that has built up in your dishwasher's interior.

    After you have cleaned the detergent buildup from the inside of your dishwasher, follow the steps below to keep the buildup from happening again and to help your dishes rinse cleanly and prevent residue from accumulating on the dishes.
  4. Gel dishwasher detergent
    Switch to a liquid or gel dishwasher detergent. Any brand will do.
  5. Fill one compartment half full Dishwashers will effectively clean dishes with much less detergent than manufacturers often recommend. The bleach in the detergent, combined with the extremely hot water used in the dishwasher wash cycle, will clean and sanitize your dishes completely, even in small amounts, and using less detergent helps prevent buildup and residue from accumulating on your clean dishes.

    Fill only one detergent compartment(the one that snaps closed) half full with gel detergent. Snap the opening closed and run your dishwasher as you normally would. Your dishes will come out sparkling clean with no buildup or residue, plus you'll save money by using less detergent!

Why does it continously beep? Why is it starting up by itself? Even after turning off? When you open the door it shows a light on rinse, when it was set on normal.


Not sure if your dishwasher problem has been fixed yet.

The continous beep and the rinse light on means the flood switch in your single drawer built in dishwasher has come on.

There is water leak inside the housing under the drawer. Turn the power off at the mains breaker and pull the drawer out as much as possible. Get a few towels and dry out the bottom of the dishwasher under the drawer. Use hair dryer if well.
Turn the power back on and see if the problem disappears. Sometime too much foam in detergent can also cause it but mostly it can be due to drain hose been kinked or gasket leaking.

Post a comment to let me know what you find.

How much delime agent should I use to clean the system in a Hobart LXI-H?


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 hobart lxih is stuck in delime.


To reset or clear delime message, on control board there are 3 buttons. from power off, drawer open, manget on door switch, door closed, hold PROG on board and press the ON key on keyboard. pressing select moves to next poption, up arrow increases setting. step through select until you see delime, settings for LXi are de for disabled, and 1 through 65= x100 cycles. rg if set at 5, after 500 cycles the message apears. To keep the settings and clear the message a delime sequence needs to be run precisely as described.

DO NOT MIX DELIME ACID, RINSE AGENTS OR OTHER ACID WITH BLEACH PRODUCTS, OR HAZAEDOUS GASES WILL FORM.

With machine off, remove rack , close door, press and hold wash/delime key and press ON. Delime will be lit on display, release wash/delime key, and let machine fill. you should then see ADD and DELIME on the display, open the door and add the delime agent following supplier's instructions precisely. close the door, press wash, delime will flash. After delime is complete power is turned off. Inspect the machine and repeat if necessary.
DO NOT LEAVE THE ACID IN ANY LONGER THAN RECOMMEDED.

"clean" light is blinking


Check the following:
1. Is the overfill protection float able to move up and down
freely? Press down to release.
2. Be sure the water supply is turned on to the dishwasher.

3. Check for suds in the dishwasher. If foam or suds are
detected by the dishwasher sensing system, the
dishwasher may not operate properly or may not fill with
water.
Suds can come from:
1. Using the incorrect type of detergent, such as
laundry detergent, hand soap, or dish detergent for
hand washing dishes.
2. Forgetting to replace the rinse aid dispenser cap
after filling (or refilling) the rinse aid, or spilling rinse aid into the tub (rinse aid causes suds to occur).
3. Using an excessive amount of dishwasher detergent.

Dishwasher says delime on screen, how do i do this?.


Hi!

You need to buy a calcium lime remover/lime remover and if you can see a bad lime deposit then please buy a stronger delime.You need to put the delime in the unit and run it through a cycle.Repaet this procedure more than once to get optimum results & get rid of the scale. Also try and delime it once in a month or two so that this doesn't happen in future.

Please rate this solution.

Thanks
