Too long for a cycle

About a year ago fitted new pump to this machine-since when it takes forever to cycle through a load(more than 1 1/2 hours for a quick wash.Standard wash about 4 hours).Also does not seem to need salt . Anyone got any ideas?

Cycle takes forever also not heating

On the side of the units there is a matrix (up and down tubes ) they need cleaning but I will warn you the pipes from the drain and through the matrix are gummed up with a disgusting sludge. There are some push on fittings and some held with spring clips take some photos when disassembling but it is easy just time consuming trying to flush the gunk

My 7 year old Bosch dishwasher (SHE56C) started to run for hours when set to wash on any cycle.

Do you hear it go into the drain cycle that is do you hear the drain pump run at some stage. What happens in the rinse program (short cycle)? It is likely the thermostat is not working or the water temperature is too low due to heater problems.

My problem was eco & prewash lights flashing so I followed instructions on Fix Ya to reset which seemed tomwork machine went through complete sequence but then reverted back to lights flashing aga

Hi, not sure if its relevent but we have a hotpoint aquarius DWF50 machine, light flashed same at times, sometimes push the switches would not operate properly to select a program. Lately the pump for emptying water at the end of a cycle would continue to run even when it was empty for hours until you turned it off.
Before doing anything else, disconnect the mains lead.....
I checked the float sensor for water etc as advised ...nothing dry..then decided to take off the controller board as previously we had a problem with the relay being dry soldered to the circuit board...on the left hand side of the board I found two thin wires, black and black with grey stripe, one was not soldered correctly to the board..dry joint and pulled away as i tugged at it. Resoldered the joint properly, reassembled board and connectors to the door. Fitted screws back etc. That was a week ago...its been fine since.
No idea what the wires were attached to at the other end but they look like low ampage signal type wires perhaps from some sort of sensor...anyway they should have been soldered properly during manufacture...years ago. Hope that helps ofr gives you something more to go on.

Own a whirlpool dishwasher with six sense. Kindly advise me if we can reset the timer to ONLY 30mins or 45mins as 2hours is the only time on the machine. First time user and in booklet don't...

This machine determines the time it will take to wash depending on the load and how dirty the dishes are. It actually looks at the load in the machine and as it washes, it also checks the first and subsequent emptying of waste water, to see how soiled the water is. The machine then adjusts the duration of the wash depending on what it finds as it runs through the cycle. Consequently, you can't adjust the time. However, the 2 hours that the machine is displaying is an estimate, based on the most recent loads that it has done for you (I'm not sure, but I believe it is the average time taken for the last 10 or 20 loads). If the machine is new and hasn't built up a history of the loads you use, the estimated time to wash will be quite high (there may well be a 2 hour default estimate). This does not mean that it will necessarily take 2 hours. You will find that when you put in a load, the time to finish will be revised as the machine goes through its cycle.

Consequently, if you typically do the same sort of load time and time again, you will see that the estimated time to finish will begin to stablise around a more realistic estimate as the machine "gets a feel" for how long the load will really be likely to take.

Bottom line, just let it do the loads and trust the technology to do the best job that can be done. The time to finish will begin to change as it builds up a history and the machine is designed to use as little water and power as possible without your intervention.

I have purchased a house with the single door dishwasher and it takes forever to wash - about two hours - what could be the problem?

Check your program settings. If wash quality is good, it's OK. Check your inlet water has sufficient pressure! Refer user manual

Takes two and a half hours to run a load of dishes

They probably aren't running the hot water at the sink before starting the dishwasher. You know how it takes time to get hot water at the tap when you turn it on? well the new dishwashers use such little water, that they will fill with cold/warm water, and try to heat it up to 170+ degrees before continuing the cycle

They weren't lyin', with the new improved energy effeciency and cleaning units they using more "soaking" times to losen food particles to use less water and clean better. And that they deffinitly do versus old units and they save more energy by doing this also. On some makes and models theywill have cycles that still use less time but also will then use some more water during this cycle. My SEARS store "blue crew" did research and found out this cycle for me.

Water not draining from the machine

If it IS the pump, it’s often because some relatively minor item (piece of cocktail stick/bit of nutshell/etc) has found its way past the filters and is blocking the blades of the pump. It is relatively simple to remove the inlet hose to the pump and clear the blockage (a pair of grips to pinch and remove the retaining clip, then the hose will slide off the fitting on the pump). I did this several times on my previous (Hotpoint) machine – and suspect it is no harder on the Bosch (which I now have). If that doesn’t work, you are half-way to replacing the pump, which is not a difficult DIY job and I’m surprised any competent professional repair man wanted to write off a machine where the pump had failed. A new pump should cost around £40-£50 – less than a quarter of the cost of a new machine. DIY fitting would maybe take a couple of hours; a pro ought to do it in less than an hour.

Bosh shu43c never stops running.

If you have a Bosch shu4300...check this site.

My issue was a heater fault and fixed the problem by resoldering a bad joint. Works fine once this was fixed.
