Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU5305UC Built-in Dishwasher
I have the same issue that "Kittens" reported with the Bosch dishwasher - sometimes it gets stuck on the 1 minute mark and will stay there for hours. I'm wondering if there is a way to reset the dishwasher so the settings can be cleared...Does anyone have any advice on that?
YOU MAY NEED A CONTROL BOARD OR A HEATER. THERE IS A CONNECTOR WITH A RED AND GRAY WIRE, THE RED WIRE IS THICKER THAN THE OTHER RED WIRES. IF YOU HAVE 120 VOLTS ON THERED WIRE THE CONTROL IS GOOD. YOU NEED A CLAMP ON AMP METER TO TEST TO SEE IF THERE IS AN AMP DRAW ON THE RED WIRE WHICH WOULD TELL YOU THE HEATER IS WORKING

Forgot about this post. I took the unit apart and discovered the bad solder connection which I found posted on the web to be true. It's a solder connection on the control PC board for the relay that controls the heater. When the connection opens (breaks) the heater doesn't work, then the water temperature won't acheive the required level and the wash time projection falls apart. I repaired the connection with enough solder to act as a heat sink to eliminate the problem from returning (I already replaced the control PC before) which is the weak link in the dishwasher now eliminated. After re-assembly the processor remembered the excessive time to get the water hot (which was never acheived) and it projected way too much time. But after performing a successful cycle it returned to accurate wash time projections and works perfectly.
I can repair the control PCs so this problem will not return, as long as someone can remove it and ship it to me.
Email me if anyone needs such help.

We called Sears (who installed the Bosch) and referenced these threads that the cause was very likely the control board and would they please bring one when they come out to check. They came out and checked and...guess what? Gotta order a control board...came in 2 weeks later and solved the problem.
