Having problems with your Hobart LXiGC Dishwasher ?

Hey traboH - thanks and we do need to get a chemical supplier - but this machine does not have automatic dispensers - how else might I add soap? Thanks, robin879


Answers :

It's acceptable to just pour the proper amount of detergent right into the unit every time you wash a load. However, there are two things to consider.
\015\012
\015\0121. Without pumps, it is important to ensure that your final rinse temperature is, at minimum, 180 degrees for proper sanitation of your dishware. If you have a LXiGC, as you've indicated, you'll have trouble doing this because that unit does not have it's own booster heater to maintain such high temps. Usually, sterilization is achieved through the use of a chemical sanitizer, delivered via a pump during the rinse cycle, on that particular model.
\015\012
\015\0122. Also, it will be impossible to properly deliver rinse aid (jet-dry) to the machine without pumps. This may lead to noticeable "spotting" of your glassware.
\015\012
\015\012Adding pumps to the unit is an option I would seriously consider. Your most economical route would be to have your chemical company install their pumps externally. Your local Hobart office can offer you the addition of chemical pumps, as well, but you'll pay a premium price for them.
\015\012
\015\012 I'll add, if you do decide to get the pumps, insist that the proper ratio of chemical is being delivered (achieved via pump programming). It's not uncommon for the pumps to be improperly programmed and excessive amounts of chemicals consumed. These guys are, after all, in the chemical SALES business.

THE SOAP RARELY CLEANS COMPLETELY OUT AND SOMETIMES THE DISHES ARE LEFT DIRTY. I HAVE ELIMINATED; 1) INCOMPLETE CYCLE. AND 2) NOT USING FRESH DETERGENT. I'M THINKING THAT IT MIGHT HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE SOAP DOOR/LATCH LINKAGE. IN ORDER TO TAKE CARE OF THIS NEED TO TAKE THE DOOR APART. I JUST NEED TO KNOW IF I'M HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION, OR IF THERE'S SOMETHING ELSE I NEED TO CONSIDER.

My Bosh Model# SHE4AM02UC/01 Is not cycling. Started with the soap dispenser not opening, progressed to the drain pump not staying on. When you turn it on, the pump runs for 2 seconds. water solenoid opens for another two seconds, and then the "clean" light comes on. If I go to quick wash, or to pot scrubber it might do a regular cycle. I did pull the pump to remove a piece of glass before this all started, but can't imagine that would be the cause.
