Runs forever! even on Normal wash...help !!

Frigidaire model FDB510LC53,less than 2 yrs old.
It seems on any wash cycle, it will take 4-8hrs to complete the cycle.

We timed it today on "Normal" cycle...start time 9;45AM...Finished at 2:15pm ( 4 1/2 hrs.) is this normal///the "Heavy Duty" cycle will go nearly 8hrs.
Any hints ( othrt than total replacement??

Thx
JRW I have the same problem as jmjh2001's post. We have had this model for 5 years, and it just happened. I started it at 9 p.m. and my wife woke me up at 4 a.m. telling me the dishwasher was still running. We also got the Heating delay light. I am planning on replacing the Timer, as I believe the timer is causing the machine to run all this time.

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.

Frigidaire washing machine (FTW3011KW0) runs through all cycles, agitates, pumps out water, but doesn't spin, nor does the motor attempt to spin during the spin cycle


Your main switch needs replaced. The motor that drives the switch operates because it goes through the other cycles, so the switch must be bad.

They weren't lyin', with the new improved energy effeciency and cleaning units they using more "soaking" times to losen food particles to use less water and clean better. And that they deffinitly do versus old units and they save more energy by doing this also. On some makes and models theywill have cycles that still use less time but also will then use some more water during this cycle. My SEARS store "blue crew" did research and found out this cycle for me.

Today's dishwashers use less water and less electricity so the manufacturers have had to increase wash times to get good results. One hour is about normal for the "eco" cycle since it's always "sensing" the water turbidity (soil in the wash water) and water temperature, and making adjustments as necessary.
Your shortest wash cycle would be "delicate" but it might not give you the best results.

The most obvious failure would be the mechanical timer that is behind / part of the knob used to select the cycle.

But, you may want to inspect the heating element in the sump area -- some dishwashers will wait (and wait) for the water temp to come up high.

Good Luck!
