Resolved Question:

My Bosch dishwasher has a strange odor and the sanitized light no longer comes on. The washer has been cleaned really well but the smell continues and still no lights. Any ideas or suggestions?

Do you have a display on the unit? Can you tell me how much time each cycle is except for the rinse and hold
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
We don't have a display but I can tell you it seems to be running much longer than it use to.
Expert:  MASTER-TECH replied 7 years ago.
It sounds like the control board has a burned out relay that is not allowing it to heat. This is a know issue with bosch. The board should have a 5-year part warranty. You will have to find a authorized servicer in your area.(NNN) NNN-NNNNwill get you in touch. If given a few choices, get an estiment before they come out.
