Question about LG 24 in. LDS 5811ST Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
Even on "Sanatize" the water inside isn't hot - doesn't the dishwasher have a heater of any kind?
Is it possible the heater burnt out? If yes, how do I replace it?
The heater on the LG is inside sump. Lg has had some issues with wires breaking in the doors on units prior to 703kxxxxxx. Turn off the breaker, take off the panel and see if you have wires stuck in the insulation. If there is splice the wires together, put some insulation between the door so it doesn't happen again and go from there. If no wires are found to be broken, it could be that the element has blown. you can check the continuity on the heater for that. Unfortunately you have to remove the unit to reach the element.

Yes it has a heater.First open the door and look around the floor inside of D/W,your looking for the heater which is going to look like a oversized horse shoe that is tubeular shaped.Look for it to be broken or like it burst/melted.If you see either one you need to replace the heater.To replace it you have to remove the D/W from the counter,this way you can reach the 2 wires that attach to the heater.Its very easy to identify because you can see exactly where the heater is fed through from looking in the D/W.After removing the wire from each side ,you now un screw the long plastic nuts that hold the heater on the D/W.Once removed reach inside of D/W and pull the heater out,now you puy the new one in place of the bad one and re -connect the nuts/wires.If you arent sure what to do at any time ,STOP !!!Only because youll pay more if you have to call someone and have already toyed with it.
