    I am having this same problem with my Kitchenaid. And turning off the heated cycle didnt help. The last time the repair guy came out, he retrieved some papers from under the machine and hit a series of buttons to "reset" the machine. Not only can I not find the paper (to tell me the reset steps), I cannot recall what buttons he hit in what order. Anyone know?

De-select all hi temp options and try it.
If it works you have a bad hi-temp thermostat.

Frigidaire FDB520RHB Dishwashers : We bought this dishwasher about 3 months ago. Today I ran the washer before I left to do errands and when I returned, I believe the washer had finished its cycle. But...


Try to run the dishwasher on a short cycle like rinse and see if it finishes the cycle.

It is likely the heater or hot water temperature is not reaching the desired level and this could cause the extended wash cycle. Feel water temperature inside dishwasher after some time. If cold then it is the heater not working. Perhaps try without Heat Dry Cycle. That will also extend the cycle if heater is not working well.

see cycle diagrams in the page 2 of this sheet. Gives you and idea how Heater Delay affects cycle times.

The blue indicator light will no longer come on at the end of the cylce


Hello Loucinda Stanley - Try resetting the dishwasher by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. Select a normal cycle let it run and then the indicator light should display at the end of the cycle. If it proves to be ineffective, connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues.

Ariston LS 2020 taking more than two hours to go through cycle.


Ariston and on and on...lol

The water temp thermostat is to blame or the water is not heating.Basically what happens is the washer fills with cold water and starts to wash and heat at the same time.Once the water reaches a certain temperature it moves onto the next stage of the wash program.If the water is not heating or the thermostat is not working the programmer wont get the signal to move on.Hope this helps.

Cycle is taking longer then it should


Check your household water temperature. It should be 120 degrees or better at the kitchen faucet. The dishwasher may be trying to heat the water to a predetermined temperature before advancing the timer. Hope this helps, Ken

LG LDF6810ST Stainless Built In Dishwasher


It is very common that high eficiency, low water using dishwashers take longer to finish all cycles. The best way to "hurry" the washing is to make sure that the water heater is providing hot water of at least 120 degrees. But no hotter then 140 degrees.
If the dishwasher runs even longer, check to see is the dishwasher is actually connected to the cold water line. This dishwasher can be run from cold water but the water heating phase in the cycles will add much time ti the entire cycle.

This unit has a sensor that detects the detects the water clarity towards the end of the wash cycle. Rinsing the dishes may speed the load a little, but encourage not to go crazy on the rinsing because the dishwasher actually counts on the food particles to help clean the dishes.
Also, note that the final (third) blinking light means drying. You can simply open the door anytime after the final draining and power off the dishwasher, allowing the hot dishes to air dry.
Hope this helps. Please resply with your findings. Thanks!
