Do you have the limit switches set up as home switches for each axis?

Limit switches must be set to the same port as homing switches if I have only one switch at axis. Correct?

If you are sharing the home and limit switches then they should be set to the same port and pin number.
You can check if you go to the diagnostics page and press each switch. The M1++ M1-- and M1Home should light up when you press the X axis switch.
Same goes for Y and Z ecept it will be M2++ etc and M3++ etc

If that is as it should be then attach your xml.

Look at the screenshot and see if your plugin is set like that. If it is you likely need to choose one of the options below it.
I do not have that controller so I am unsure what the homing options actiually do.
