If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:
Water-heating cycle 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.

Timer Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

My Bosch dishwasher Model #SHX4APO5UC/06 wont finish the cycle and it wont drain. We have checked hoses and they are not clogged. Is it something with the control panel?


Check your motherboard for burnt contacts. Easy to remove in the door. If you able resolder and give it a try. Cheaper then a new mother board.

Most dishes in any dishwasher are still wet when cycle is finished. The heat built up in the dishes during the washing cycle is what causes the water to evaporate when the machine stops.
If you want to accelerate the evaporation, simply open the door very slightly so that as the hot air escapes it causes the dishes to dry quicker.

Should any water remain under the glass trap after cycle has finished on a frigidaire dishwasher?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you want to know if any water should remain under the glass trap, on your Frigidaire dishwasher, after the cycle has finished. Per the owner's manual, "it is normal to see a small amount of water under the filter at the end of a cycle." Hope this is helpful.

My top dishwasher drawer won't finish through the cycle. It runs fine on rinse only but not any of the wash cycles. It stops mid cycles, beeps like it has been paused, then tries to start again


Try to feel the temperature of water inside the dishwasher. If it is normal room temperature for the hot wash cycles then it is likely the heater is faulty.
It is not easy to replace unless you have good experience with repairing dishwashers.

Won't finish cycle


The water may not be getting hot enough in the rinse cycle. Usually it needs to heat to 140 to 160 degrees for rinsing. If the heating element is not working the water will not heat. If your DW has a Sanitary setting it will be calling for the water to be 160 degrees. If you have the option to override the Sanitary settin, try that to see if the rinse cycle will finish with cooler water.

Kenmore dishwasher not draining when finished full cleaning cycle


sounds like a cycle timer problem. Look for a loose wire on the cycle timer. If yours is a digital timer, it is a board issue. Sorry.
