How long does it stay in the wash cycle? Indefinitely? Does the display continuously show "WASH"?. If it stays in the wash cycle indefinitely (i.e. continuously shows "WASH" for significantly beyond approx. 3 minutes), it's probably a control board malfunction. If it continues to wash after the "WASH" indicator goes out, it could be a shorted wash motor relay on the relay board or a fauly control board.
If the internal rinse water booster heater doesn't reach it's programmed setpoint temperature in time, the dishwasher will run an extended wash cycle to give the booster heater more time to finish heating the rinse water. If this is what's happening, the wash cycle would last approximately 3 minutes, then it would rinse regardless of whether the booster heater has finished heating or not.
The booster temperature thermistor may be bad, giving a false booster temperature reading, causing an extended wash cycle as described above. The booster heater elements or contactor may be bad, preventing the booster heater from heating and reaching proper temperature, also causing the same extended wash cycle to give the booster more time to heat.
Hello There; If your unit stuck on the wash cycle and not advance to rinse cycle because the rinse water is not up to 180 degree . You've to check out the booster element and the rinse temp. I hope this will help.
The water may not be getting hot enough in the rinse cycle. Usually it needs to heat to 140 to 160 degrees for rinsing. If the heating element is not working the water will not heat. If your DW has a Sanitary setting it will be calling for the water to be 160 degrees. If you have the option to override the Sanitary settin, try that to see if the rinse cycle will finish with cooler water.
it is likely a control module issue. I will take mine apart this weekend to verify what others have said: solder joint on circuitboard burns out from possible overheating, and DW doesnt go into rinse cycle. Try rinse and hold cycle to see if it stops on its own. mine does, but the other cycles which require the rinse to go to 156 degrees do not; the continue to run until I cancel and drain.
Do you have high temp rinse or sanitize selected? This will pause the timer during the final rinse cycle to heat the water. The sensor might be bad. Try the quick cycle, I don't think this heats the water.
Most DW today take a minimum of 90 minutes. Run the hot water from the sink until it gets hot, then start the DW, this will shorted the first wash cycle. It is not uncommon for the DW to run 2hrs or more based upon the water temperature entering the DW and the soil level of the items in the DW.
Aestaie, On the quick wash cycle the machine goes through a heated rinse at 160 degrees. I think what's happening here is that the board checks the thermistor and is finding that the water is not hot enough and say's, hey, I need more time to heat this water and resets itself. The element in the dishwasher will only heat the water 1 degree every 3 to 5 minutes. So after the initial wash, there is a 2 minute drain, it fills again and there is the heated rinse. If the water is 120 and the final rinse needs to be 160, we have some heating to do here. Therefore the reset. Sounds like the dishwasher is working OK, Catriver..post back
