Having problems with your Hobart LXiGC Dishwasher ?

I have purchased a business - with a Hobart LXi - and no manual. I can't figure out what soap etc to use - or how it gets into the dishwasher!


Answers :

Contact your local chemical supplier such as EcoLab or AutoChlor to purchase the proper chemicals. Use ONLY commercal dish washing chemicals. Residential detergents like Cascade do not dissolve fast enough and WILL, in time, cause you trouble if used in the LXi.

\015\012 There should be three colored plastic tubes at the rear of your machine. Red is to be put in a container of liquid detergent, Blue is for rinse aid, and white/clear is for sanitizer. Your chemical salesman should be able to show you how it's done at no charge.

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!

I just purchased a G.E. dishwasher with a black front panel that is glossy. My daughter used a mister clean sponge to clean it and is now full of scratches, is there anything I can use on it to get them out without having to replace the panel. I also have a G.E. frig with a different finish on it, it has a rough texture it never marks or shows finger prints best refrigerate I have ever owned, and was wondering if I could get that finish on the dishwasher door panel.


Once paint is scratched it is scratched. There are cheap and inexpensive ways to cover that panel with a glossy black, or even stainless or white, or whatever.

Dishes and the dishwasher look dirty after they run, like it redistributed dirty water. The door is very dirty/filmy except right under the soap dispenser, like someone squirted dirty water on it but wiped right under the soap dispenser. If I run it a second time with vinegar it gets clean, but that is crazy, esp since it takes 2 1/2 hours a load. I have 2 of them and both are doing it. I have changed soaps, added more soap, used less soap, pre-rinsed dishes, put them in filthy, used jet-dry, no

Whirlpool DU927QWDG1 Hi, The problem I'm having with my dishwasher pertains to the door cover for the area I place the soap. There is a small spring which helps the door pop open to release the soap when washing. I cant figure out how to place the spring so that the pops open.....right now when I run the unit the door stays latched and the soap doesn't get dispensed. Any ideas on how to repair this or where I could maybe get a parts manual??? Your expertise will be greatly appreciated!!!!

My dishwasher is SHU 3000 series and over 10 years old. The problem is SUDS that will not go away. I have used on-line methods such as vinegar. I have gone through 6 bottles of "Dishwasher Magic" and have put it through cycles not using soap over 30 times and am still getting suds even at the end of the rinse cycle. I have called a local repairman and he says he cannot help me..that I should continue running the dishwasher time after time till the water is w/o suds. Any help for me?

I just bought a used Kenmore standalone dishwasher and ran it for the first time. The dishes on the top did not get clean and the soap did not come out of the closed soup dish. at one point I took a shower and was wondering if that might have influenced the water pressure enough to cause the problem. Is the soap supposed to open during the wash and could the poor water pressure prevent the top shelf from getting properly washed?


The inlet filter is probably clogged. Try letting it fill up. Open the door to stop it right after it starts to wash Pour a gallon or two of hot water in and see it it works better Stop and do this everytime it goes to fill up. If the door opens ... Dishwashers

My Bosch dishwasher, model SHE58C did not completely drain. We were eventually able to use the cancel cycle/drain procedure to get the machine mostly drained, but now all the lights are lit on the panel, and the count down display is 11. I haven't figured out how to reset. I have tried to hit "Cancel drain" and turn on the machine to get into diagnostic mode, but I can't figure out what the codes & light combinations mean because my model is not in any of the online sources I've found


I have managed to pick up typical diagnostic error codes for a bosch dishwasher - these are\015\012\015\0120 = No faults detected 2 = Heating fault 8 = NTC (temperature sensor) fault\015\0121 = Aqua Se ... Bosch Evolution 800 SHE58C05UC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Got a new Kenmore dish washer in mid January. Worked fine for a couple of weeks then so-called "clean" dishes were covered with a residue from, I assume, was the dishwasher soap. I tried cascade action pacs, then cascade powder and finally, cascade gel. Nothing helped. I ended up having to use SOS pads to get the "crud" off of the dishes and silverware, and use regular dish soap to hand clean each dish and saucer and bowl...as well as each knive, spoon and fork!

I have a Kenmore built in dishwasher. Serial Number 15989990 Model 665. My dishes are not getting clean. Lots of residue on glasses on top rack and dishes streaked. Any ideas? We thought it might be the soap we are using which is the liquid variety. We always in the past have used powdered cascade. However, I believe the problem is other than the soap issue.

My Frididaire Dishwasher Model FDB1250REC1 is discolored inside. Its a browninsh color and it has gotten on my Corningware dishes and stained some of them. I can get most of the color off the dishes if I scrub hard. I have run cleaners for the dishwasher thru and cleaned it temporarly. Do you think this is the soap I use, amount of soap or maybe the water. Not sure its the water cause there is another one on my water line that is not really having this problem. I always run hot water just before

Hi I have a Kelvinator KD12ww/mm dishwasher. I have noticed that my glasses and other plates often do not get cleaned properly. I do use the setting for glasses etc. I also tried to add salt once in a while and after every wash I clean the filters. I tried to drain the water etc and have no other solution.

It appears that the dishwasher is not getting enough water. I have made sure that there is nothing blocking the door area so that the soap can dispense and I have reduced the amount of detergent to maybe a 1/2 Tablespoon. Have tried both powder and liquid detergents. Ran a sani clean cycle with the Jet Dry product for dishwasher used in the rural. I also run the hot water in the sink prior to starting the dishwasher to ensure the water is hot when it comes into the dishwasher. The detergent

I have a Kitchen Aid KUDS03CTSS3 dishwasher. Dirty water is staying at the bottom and nothing comes out the drain hose during the entire cycle. The drain hose is looped above the kitchen P-trap, although for a time it wasn't. I use a wet vac to get the water out but there is still water below the fine filter. I thought if I could get the fine filter off, I could clean out the bottom as I think that it's full of crud down there that may be blocking things. I can't figure out how to get the l
