Question about LG 24 in. LDS 5811ST Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Dishes no longer get dry and it'snot cleaning as well.

Leaning toward a hot water problem. Put the unit on Strong spray, Sanitize and Normal wash and also added Jet Dry to ensure there was plenty. Also verified the setting was at three. Ran water in the sink until it got hot and started the wash cycle. At the start of the drying cycle, I listened and felt for the fan. I could easily hear the fan running and the air at the bottom of the door was just barely warm. After the unit shut off, I opened the door and checked the dishes. Even on the Sanitize setting, there was water on many of the dishes and even in a few glasses. I had one bowl that had been through two wash cycles and was still not clean. This unit is 25 months old and was not actually installed for a couple of months after the delivery due to construction. The dishwasher worked well until a few weeks ago. Suggestions? And will I need to purchase a service manual to fix.
