This dishwasher was installed new in April 2006. It is mostly used on the Light Wash cycle, but lately it seems to hold and it hums for several minutes at the 76 minute mark. Sometimes the cycle will continue after a few minutes, other times it has to be stopped and restarted. It drains alright, so I don't think that's the problem. Any ideas?

Some SHX46 washers have 4 wash cycle buttons and others have 5. The button on the left side on top of the door is the start/stop button regardless of how many wash cycle buttons you have.
If you have 5 cycle buttons, reading from left to right they will be as follows.
1. Top Rack Only / Sanitize 2. Power Scrub Plus - (Long wash for heavy soil) 3. Regular Wash - (Economy wash for light to medium soil) 4. Delicate Wash - (Shorter wash at a lower temperature for delicate items) 5. Rinse & Hold.
These buttons are also used for cancelling a wash cycle. Hold down buttons 2 and 4 (Power Scrub Plus and Delicate) at the same time to cancel a wash cycle and drain the water out.
If your washer does have 4 buttons, it means you don't have a Top Rack / Sanitize cycle, in which case the button configuration - from left to right - will be:
1. Power Scrub Plus - (Long wash for heavy soil) 2. Regular Wash - (Economy wash for light to medium soil) 3. Delicate Wash - (Shorter wash at a lower temperature for delicate items) 4. Rinse & Hold.
With this button configuration, the cancel cycle buttons are 1 and 3.
I hope this solves your problem. If you need any additional information, please post back.
Hello, welcome to FixYa. While I don't have access to my PC files at the moment as I am on my iphone, I believe this is the procedure for most B/S/H/ built dishwashers ( that means Bosch, Thermador, Siemens and Gaggenau ).
To Enable or Disable the Cycle Completion Signal...
1. Open the door, hold down the ?Quick Wash?
button and simultaneously turn the Dishwasher on.
The ?Quick Wash? light will blink (program mode).
2. While the light is still blinking, push the ?Quick
? If the machine beeps, then the Cycle
Completion Signal has been enabled.
? When you push the button again and it
doesn?t beep, it means that the Cycle
Completion Signal has been disabled.
3. Turn the Dishwasher off to take it out of

that would be model # 66516012403 correct?? you may have inadvertently set the lock on function.. check this out from your manual...
Lock On Use the Lock On to prevent unintended use of the dishwasher between cycles. You can also use the lock feature to prevent unintended cycle or option changes during a cycle. When LOCK ON is lit, all buttons are disabled. NOTE: The dishwasher door can be opened while the controls are locked. However, the lock must be turned off and the Start/ Resume button pressed to resume the cycle. To turn on the Lock Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. LOCK ON glows. If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light flashes 3 times. NOTE: If the Heated Dry option is selected, the light will temporarily turn off until Lock On glows. To turn off the Lock Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.
There is not a reset button, but you can try by holding both drain and one of the wash cycle.. hold it for a few seconds.. keeping trying drain and another, and another.... you will hear drain motor draining water out... if there is standing water at the bottom... if the cycle stopped after wash cycle, its usually your control... hope this help...
momrules, it could vary depending on the water entering the dishwasher. On a heavy cycle normal time is about 85 minutes not including thermal holds ( pauses that heat the water). On a normal wash, 68 to 75 minutes not including thermal holds. If the water entering the dishwasher is not at least 120 to 140 degrees the dishwasher will pause in cycles to heat the water before advancing. So 120 minutes is not unrealistic. The heaters in the dishwasher are low wattage and will only heat the water approx. 2 degrees every 5 minutes. Catriver.
