Question about Dishwashers
SOURCE: Long cycle times
Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows: On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time. On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too. About the led: If your dishwasher has a digital readout and you see an error code, it may indicate a problem with the unit. If this happens, look up the error code in your owner's manual to find out what the problem is.

This is either a fill fault or a heater fault, for fill fault check side fill chamber is not blocked with fat, for heater check heater, if heater does not activate then the fault is on the PCB programmer, this model often suffers from faulty soldered connections on the pcd, remoce and inspect if required resolder joint.

Easy one first try this to see if it helps
Water pre-heatingYour dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water.
To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.
Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

SOURCE: Dishwasher drains continuously
I dismantled and checked various parts of the dishwasher and everything seemed to be working. I noticed with a phase tester that the pressostat never got any voltage. This led me to check the microswitch on the door which turned out to be broken (never making any connection). This is the microswitch that turns off the dishwasher when someone opens the door.
So an unusual problem - two faults at the same time i.e. clogged and overflowing drain and broken door switch!
I ordered and fitted a new door switch and now the machine is working fine again.
