Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

Siemens dishwasher is running very long with warm water only

My siemens dishwasher SL33A006UC/36 seems to run for a very long time. When I slowly open the door during the wash cycle the water seems to be cool or luke warm at best. We're getting hot water at all other faucets in the house.

The owners manual indicated that the long running problem may be due to water temp not getting hot enough. Is there a heating element in the dishwasher that can go out? A fuse?

thanks for any help you can provide.

    I have a kenmore elite model #665.16599202 and am exeriencing this same problem. It can take as much as 3 hours to run a load of dishes. I have turned on the hot water in the kitchen to make sure the water is hot that goes to the dishwasher, but when I check the water in the dishwasher it is barely warm. I have turned up the temp on the water heater and that does not seem to help.

SOURCE: dishwasher temp.

I have same problem, but I have started to use the high temperature wash and this works well. It probably uses more hot water.

Dishwashers tend to get stuck on wash cycle if the water temperature is not reaching the level the wash program expects it to reach. This could be due to faulty heater or thermostat or both.

One test is to run the dishwasher on a rinse cycle (normal water temperature) and see if it completes it.
Refer this site for location and cost of heater and thermostat

Siemens Dishwasher Fault


there is a water level sensor in the bottom of the machine if this is faulty and stays on, this will indicate to the pump there is water still in the machine. I would check this sensor it might be blocked with debris and has blocked in the closed position. that woudl be the best start for this issue.

i hope this was useful.

Why does my siemens dishwasher take 4 hours to finish running


Should only take 120 minutes to run a complete cycle. Your drain pump might not be expelling all the water.

The dishwasher moter is running when the door is open however no washer is present. dishwasher does not go through a cycle it just keeps running


Hi,

It seems to be a Safety Switch. Is there any Leak? Check Properly specially into the Base of the Dishwasher. I have seen many Times that could Turn OFF the Safety switch.

Turn off and lean the machine back at 45 degrees, you may see water come out the base. Wait for it to dry out then try again.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Bosh dishwasher not working


It is possible. It is also possible that the water temp is too low and it is taking that time to heat the water. If it seems to be making a humming sound the entire time, like it is draining, see my guide here to clear the clog. I too thought mine was not filling at first, but these have a good number of drainage issues that are misdiagnosed as control board and fill valve problems.

Our dishwasher is not running through all cylcles


Either:

1. the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4 times during cycle, you should see some water at least once, if not - check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
3. motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor during wash/rinse cycle.

Good luck,

The washer may be attempting to run dry. Many times on these washers, a person may open the washer and then go to another load. The washer gets stuck with a dry pump until the timer tells water fill valve to open. Easy test. Start on regular cycle ,slowly advance the timer. it will click until you here the fill start and water will fill until.....
