Question about Siemens Dishwashers
Check the freedom of movement of the water level sensor (a plastic float inside the washer basin), even a slight overfill will cause the water to leak past the door seal. As far as the long run time goes you will need a new control panel circuit board.

Hello and welcome to Fixya. The assesment of the control is likely accurate. Siemen is made by B/S/H/ ( bosch/ thermador/ siemen/ gaggenau) and there is plenty of president for this issue. Likely if you select just a rinse cycle it will complete fine since the rinse cycle doesn't call for heat from the element/control. sooo... Based on your description I'd say the issue IS indeed with the control. As I said B/S/H/ has had a history of this exact problem I'm about to lay out for you and this is the first thing I'd be looking for if called out to service the unit with the symptoms you've described. ( unless you requested a resolder option...see below re: my opinion on this ) I digress, As I've alluded to the issue is within the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ). My first suggestion would be calling in an authorized bosch/siemen servicer if that is an option for you and your budget however, If you cannot afford that option or simply feel you want to attempt and are capable of checking this on your own, there`s a way to visually inspect the control yourself. It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board. This will be one of the pins from the heater relay, hence the unit sit`s and takes forever to finish because it can`t heat to advance or unless the 2 buttons for "cancel" are pressed. **My Opinion - if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...but it has to be done well...half assed will not last, although Bosch recommend`s replacing the control and I don`t pretend to speak on there behalf nor do I profess to know better. This is just my experience (it work`s) and my opinion (why buy new if one can repair ?)** **Please disconnect the power before attempting any service to the dishwasher. If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Siemen/Gaggenau, to service your machine.** Hope this answer`s your question, let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. Based on your post I understand you have a problem with a Siemens dishwasher, however if you could provide more detail as to what is happening ( buttons don't resond ?) and possibly the age of the unit I would be better equipped to assist you without generalizing on what it may or may not be. Let me know and we can go forward from here. I'll watch and look forward for your reply. Thank you for visiting FixYa for your inquiry. Regards, Macmarkus :)
