Your dishwasher washes & rinses fine, you are having a problem with the drying part of the washer. It's the heating element. But just to be sure, clean out the bottom of the washer. You can simple unscrew the plastic nut from the bottom, lift off the cover & remove all debris. replace cover & nut. You could try to run the washer empty & let it have a good cleaning(I do this once a month) Cleaning the washer probably won't help the unit go into the dry cycle, but it is something you should do monthly, for PM. If you know someone handy they can replace the heating unit ordered from LG or your Manuel may give you some places.(or off the web) AND if you are lucky & the dishwasher is less than 1 year old it's still under warranty for parts only. Labor is what gets you. Again, most people know someone who is handy. Sorry I couldn't give you good news.

Hi Jenny - I had a terrible smell coming from under my sink, and I too thought it was a dishwasher/garbage disposal drainage issue. I used vinegar, baking soda, bleach and hot water on a daily basis. When I cut out the wallboard from under the sink and the smell got even worse, however, there was no sign of any water leaks or evidence of a dead animals. Come to find out, when I had a "friend" cut out a pass through from my kitchen (above the sink) into the den, he cut the pvc exhaust pipe and didn't re-route it nor cap allowing the fumes to escape outside via the attic. Thus, the fumes had no place to go other than down. The smell confused me because I thought it was rotten food or most likely a dead mouse trapped between the wall. The smell was actually causing me to get headaches. It's been almost 24 hours that this was repaired and I already can "smell" the difference. I hope this helps! Good luck.

An error 24 code on your Bosch dishwasher means that you have a clog or that your pump is bad. Check and clean out your airgap. If that doesn’t work and your machine is still under warranty, call Bosch. Bosch won’t tell you what the error code means, only that you need a service call, and they will then give you some phone numbers for Bosch authorized appliance repair places, one of which was Mr. Appliance. The appliance repair place will want to put in a new part whether you need it or not so that they can get paid by Bosch. I found this out the hard way. Hey Bosch, be smart and tell your customers what the error codes mean so that they are informed and you don’t look like you are trying to rip them off. Leave that to Mr. Appliance. You can always remind the customer that working on the actual dishwasher voids the warranty. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out how to clean out the airgap, which isn’t a part of the dishwasher, but rather part of your plumbing connected to the dishwasher. I suspected this to begin with, but because you told me I needed a service call, I had to assume it was beyond basic owner maintenance. Great way for you to flush money down the toilet and look bad doing so.

This means the unit has taken on water to the base pan and will not allow you to do anything until the water is removed. Once the water is gone you will need to locate or fine why water reached the base pan to correct this problem. Most common reasons, too much subs, leaking hose, leaking drain hose behind the unit and traveled back into the unit. Without seeing the unit the cause would just be a guess. I hope this helps. If you unplug the unit allow 2-3 days to dry out, this may allow you to run the unit and locate the original cause of your leak. good luck

I’m happy to help further over the phone at
