Bosch SHX33A05UC/36 dishwasher seems to run for hours to do a load of dishes. Checked water temperature, drain and hose and all is clean. The rinse and hold cycle times out correctly. Is it a timer or...


Hi,
No, the problem in not the unit, it is programed to run up to 3-3 1/2 hours for a single cycle. You can select quick wash to shorten this time down, but this is not a problem with the unit. It wants to assure you have clean dishes and hot enough water to complete the program.
In testing one a few days ago, I ran into this same problem, I reread the time charts and cycles and found this to be normal for this manufacture.
I hope this answered your question.

Dishwasher is not cleaning the dishes. Both on full service wash and 1 hour wash.


First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter.

Our dishwasher takes about 3-4 hours to run a cycle. My brother has the same model and it takes about an hour. Is there an adjustment that we can make to correct this? Thanks, Karla


make sure that your filter in the bottom is clean and if you are using the automatic wash cycle, it will wash until the water is clean. Sometimes it will take an hour, sometimes it will take close to 2 depending upon the level of dirty dishes in the dishwasher. And don't rinse! They work better on dirty dishes.

I have a Whirlpool GU2600XTPS7 dishwasher - long washing time


You could have a couple things going on here. It could be either related to water temperature, build up in the sensor area or poor washing.

If the dishes are coming clean then you can discount the poor washing.

1st thing to try is clean out the dishwasher, a build up or residue can form on the sensors in the bottom and they can be fooled into thinking the water is cloudier or cooler than normal and it would take longer to heat the water and wash. Here is a link to some instructions I put together on how to clean it out.

Clean Out Procedures

2nd thing to try would be to run the hot water in the kitchen sink until it is hot before you start the dishwasher. By doing this the dishwasher will not have to slow down and pause while it is heating the water enough to clean the dishes

We have a Bosch dishwasher. The only problem is that it takes about 4 hours to wash and dry the dishes. Is this normal?


No it is not. But, are you setting it on the shortest cycle? Maybe you got it on the longest, but wow 4 hrs? That doesn't sound like German engineering at its best.

The Tecniks dishwasher seems


Hi.

Try running a cleaning product to clear the rear pipes of any grease deposits.

If this does not work, check rear pipesare not kinked.

Hope this helps.
