Question about Whirlpool 24 in. GU1500XTLS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
I have a Whirlpool diswasher model GU1800XTLS3, serial # FR1011670 that is taking an extremely long time to complete its cycle. For instance, on normal wash using air dry, it takes up to 3 hrs from the time it is turned on. I have noticed that during the wash phase it sits on the same count-down minute for 5 to 10 minutes at a time with the sensing & water heating lights on. The unit is quite a ways from the water heater and it takes a minute or two for hot water to reach the adjacent sink faucet. Additional note - the drying coil is currently broken but the unit is set for air dry.
The drying coil that is broken also heats the water during the wash and rinsing phase. Right now it is waiting for the water to heat up, that's why it's pausing. Replace broken heater, they are relatively cheap and can be gotten at repair clinic.com.

I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying...
