Replace the timer.

Most likely it was broken by someone resetting the timer by hand while the unit was energized.

Always open the door(de-energizes the timer) when you want to make an adjustment to the machine while it's running.

Dishwasher wont finish any cycles


That blinking light is trying to tell you that there is something wrong with the dishwasher. You need to fix the problem or else that blinking light will come back. And the number of times it blinks (before it pauses and repeats) will tell you (or a technician) what is wrong. How many times does it blink?

Bosch dishwasher actual runtime versus indicated runtime.


The usual discrepancies with run times is due to water heating time.
For example, your dishwasher may be estimating run time + time to heat the water from cold.
If your dishwasher is connected to hot water instead of cold, it will skip the majority of the heat cycle and adjust the time accordingly.
On the other hand for other people, their dishwasher brands may say "50 minute wash" but this does not take into account heating time, so wash can be anything up to around 70-80 minutes.

My Balboa vs500 won't change filter cycle time. I set it on F2 but it still runs for 4hrs.


Here is a link to the factory website and their trouble shooting guide. I hope it will help you get the settings changed.

Dishwasher will not run through its cycle


Hi

If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

Water-heating cycle 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.

Timer Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.


Please revert for further assistance and Do rate the solution as "FixYa" if found useful.

Thanks

Running time of dishwasher


he cycles times are too long If your dishwasher's cycle times are too long, check these:

Water pre-heating
Cycle not completing
Water pre-heating Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water. 

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Cycle not completing See "The cycle doesn't complete" section.

Runs all the time


I just had this problem. I found an article that explained it and had the exact picture of my problem. It is http://fixitnow.com/wp/2006/06/09/bosch-dishwasher-takes-forever-to-complete-a-cycle/ .
I am watching my the dishwasher just move into the rinse cycle as I type this. My guess is that I just saved either $400 for a repair or $1000 on a new dishwasher. I think it is time for me to make a donation to that article's author.
