Question about Bosch 24 in. SHX99A15UC Stainless Steel Dishwasher
The digital read out displays 8.3. at all times. Seems to be running but . . .
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.

SOURCE: what does error code E1
This happens to my LG dishwasher every 6 months or so. It also makes a groaning sound as if the system is starved for water. I resolve the problem by removing the dishwasher and laying it over on it's right side. I then remove the two plastic assemblies (they are translucent enough that it is obvious that they have some gunk build up) that are on the left side and I remove them from the dishwasher (you will need a vice grips to remove the hose clamps from behind them, you will also need to remove the round circular water intake plastic disk that is on the inside of your dishwasher on the left hand side right in the middle of the left wall) and clean them. Once the water can run freely through these plastic parts you will get a good water flow and you should be fine. Until you have time to do this I recommend putting a few quarts of hot water into your dishwasher once you start to hear the groaning problem. This solution should be very easy for anyone who is comfortable doing their own oil change. Oh, and turn off the power supply first. I think the origin of the problem might be too much food on the plates and too strong of a dishwasher gel detergent so the food is turned into gunk which coats the channels of the plastic assemblies.
