Question about Bosch SHU5315UC Dishwasher
Bosch SHU5315uc, cycle wasn't finishing (displayed 2H, ran endlessly, stuck on 1 minute, etc.)-- a month after warranty expired. We researched online and all signs pointed to a bad control board. Soldered the bad spot once, problem has recurred. Is there any point to buying a new board, or is this just going to keep happening? Should we just give up and buy a different dishwasher? If so, any recommendations?
Check the main smoothing capacitor on the control board. Could be low value.

I, along with many others online, are experiencing the same problem. The bottom line is the control panel needs to be replaced. Beware, though, that the replacement panel may also be bad as I've seen many reports that they are poorly designed and Bosch isn't doing anything about it.
There are 2 things I'd like to clarify...
1) The display "2H" is an error code which, according to Bosch, indicates service is needed on the unit. The code is different from "2h" (note the lower-case letter h), which is what would display when the delay start button is pushed.
2) The number 1 showing at the "end" of the cycle does NOT mean 1 minute left. It is a 2nd error code indicating the unit has "timed out."
I'm waiting to have my control panel replaced a second time. The first repairman from Sears replaced the control panel with a refurbished one, but the unit still showed 2H. He was about to leave when I told him the problem wasn't fixed. He tried to tell me that the 2H meant the cycle would be longer than 2 hours because my water temperature was too low (it is at 120 degrees, the proper temp per Bosch). He said I needed to increase my water temp or else live with the fact that the dishwasher would take a long time to run through the cycle. I asked him to call Bosch and he said they wouldn't talk to him (he really had an attitude). I asked for a receipt (on which he commented the "dw works fine") and, after he left, I called Sears back to get a "senior" technician out to fix it. They ordered another (new) control panel for me and they'll be out this Friday to (try) to repare the unit. Hoping this time it will work.

SOURCE: Cycle runs forever
Th Bosch units are prone to circuit board failure and this is the common symptom. If you are electronically inclined go the applianceaid.com and search Bosch for test codes to pinpoint the issue.There is an online picture of the faulty relay solder joint I repaired mine and a neighbors, Bosch will in some cases supply parts at no charge and they do not recommend repair, however IMHO it is a repairable cold solder joint very visible on the board. If you are good with needle tip soldering iron you are in luck
