Question about Bosch 23 in. SHU3302UC Built-in Dishwasher
My Bosch dishwasher has started to take at least twice as long to go through the wash cycle......now about 3 hours !!! The only change was the replacement of the Control Unit (under the factory recall) about 2 1/2 months ago. Everything worked fine for about 2 months and now this problem has emerged. Water still comes in and the pump and soap dispenser is still working fine. The cycle is just very slow now. BTW, I do not use gel packs.
Can anyone shed light on this? Any tests that I can perform (timing portions of the cycles etc?).

SOURCE: Long cycle times
Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows: On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time. On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too. About the led: If your dishwasher has a digital readout and you see an error code, it may indicate a problem with the unit. If this happens, look up the error code in your owner's manual to find out what the problem is.

You need to take a flexible wire and stick it in each of the jet holes, all of them. Then run the machine, so the water can dissolve the soap. repeat the process w/o dishes/ soap (lather rinse...repeat)

Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.
To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...
-high temp wash
-high temp wash
All the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cycle finish (1-2 minutes). You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal. If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (i.e. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

If you have power to water valve when it is supposed to fill yet doesn't the water valve is bad, as long as their is a good water supply to the valve. Sometimes espically if it has one of those flexible stainless steel braided hoses something in cabinet could have pinched it,
Good luck,i hope this helps
