Quiet partner III taking over 4 hrs to complete normal wash cycle
I have a quiet partner III model GU2200XTSB 2 that is over 2yrs old that all of a sudden is taking well over 4hrs to complete the normal wash cycle. I have read about the incoming water temp, and mine is at 130F degrees

I had the same problem with my dishwasher. After hearing that the motherboard was the problem I decided to take a closer look. There were two capacitors (1000 microfarads, 6.3 volts) that looked a little suspect. The tops of capacitors should be flat...these looked like soda cans that had been left in the freezer. Got on eBay, located the capacitors for roughly $3 and $4 shipping, for approx total of $10. Soldered the two new capacitors into the motherboard and put it back together. As soon as I closed the door, the dishwasher started draining the water. When I ran a Normal cycle it completed successfully. Saved myself over $120!
Our Whirlpool Quiet Wash plus is 20+ years old and was on its way out the door because of erratic white residue, spotting, and film. Nothing worked: vinegar, different soaps, more soap, less soap. Today I opened it up and started digging behind covers and checking the insides - multiple places were clogged with a soap/mineral film - ugly! I sprayed the insides with Restore 4 (a tile cleaner) and scraped and brushed and broke loose the hidden deposits. The only thing I didn't open was the sump pump - but now know how to do so. (thanks FixYa)
Then I added about a 1/2 quart of vinegar and ran it full hot on the heavy wash cycle, added more vinegar between each cycle and let it dry. It looks super inside - the gunk is gone. I am now washing a load of glasses and am hoping for the best!
Check to make sure you heating element has not failed. Dishwashers of today heat the water periodically through out the cycle and if the element has failed. The heating delay light is the indicator that tells you that it is trying to heat the water.
I have a whirlpool quiet partner II and for some reason it does not drain the water out any more and I cannot figure out why....people say that it is the filter but that is unbelievably hard to get to and I cannot find any instructions online or paper work that tells how to break it down. If anyone has any insight please let me know
