It sounds like the thermostat on the rinse tank is set too high, if you drop the panel on the bottom front of the dishwasher,you will see the rinse tank, usually on the l/h side,its normally a cylindrical shape,the hermostat is normally connected to this, usually there is an adjustable shaft on the stat, it might have numerical markings on it i.e 0 to 90 degs . MAKE SURE THE POWER IS OFF TO THE UNIT !!, THIS IS CRITICAL FOR TOUR SAFETY!!. if your unsure get a proffesional to repair it . shouldnt be too expensive , hope this helps .p.s if you do have a go the rinse temp should be between 75 and 85 degrees c .

Dishwasher must be connected to a hot water line in order to work properly. Also, it often requires a good deal of time for hot water to make its way from the water heater to the dishwasher. If the dishwasher is located under the kitchen counter, turn on the hot water in the sink until it runs hot, then start the dishwasher.
Many dishwashers have a built in heater, but hot water should be initially fed into the dishwasher through the water inlet in order for it to perform properly.
IT SHOULD ONLY HAVE HOT WATERLINE GOING INTO YOUR DISHWASHER.TRY RUNNING YOUR TAP ON HOT FIRST THEN RUN DISHWASHER.SOME OLDER HOMES DONT GET HOT WATER INSTANTLY THEREFORE U COULD BE WASHING YOUR DISHES WITH WARM WATER NOT HOT
You are supposed to connect the dishwasher to the HOT water side. Although most dishwashers have a heating element to heat the water, they are normally installed this way to reduce the amount of time the heating element is on. This not only extends the life of the heating element, but also reduces the amount of electricity required to heat the water.
Another helpful hint: Before you run the dishwasher, run the hot water tap until the water runs hot. This will fill the dishwasher with water that is already hot instead of the cold water that normally sits in the line after the hot water has been shut off for a while. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Try turning on the faucet by the dishwasher and let the water run until it gets hot. Once this is done turn on the dishwasher and see if the water is warm or hot. Most dishwashers do not heat the water (residential dishwasher) they take the hot water from the hot water side of the sink. If the water heater is located a distance from the dishwasher then the cold water fills the dishwasher before the hot water can make it to the unit. This should cure your problem.
Generally speaking, dishwashers don't heat cold water on their own. Be sure the dishwasher is connected to a hot water supply and that hot water is available to the dishwasher at the START of the cycle.
Often it takes hot water several seconds for house plumbing to deliver hot water to an outlet. If the dishwasher is connected to the kitchen hot water supply, run the water in the sink until the water runs hot before you start the dishwasher.
Dishwashers often have heaters to heat the water even hotter than most home water heaters, but they are not intended to heat cool or cold water. You MUST furnish hot water to the dishwasher from the time the cycle is started.
I've seen houses that take so long for hot water to reach a faucet, the dishwasher is already full (of cold water) before the first drop of hot water reaches it.
To avoid the wait, increase the incoming watertemperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running thekitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase thetemperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot waterheater.
Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
Are you using the high wash temp setting? I was having the same problem with my dishwasher while using that setting. Apparently, it will run until the temp gets to its required number. And my hot water heater was set to not go that far. So my dishwasher would run and run. I fixed it by not using that setting any more.
