Some dishwashers can run for 4 hours or more normally depending on the options you choose. What do you mean by it runs through cycles is it always changing cycles by itself or is it just the cycle you pick just keeps on going, have you tried a quick wash or 1 hour wash does it do it then? is you hot water hot enough? if not it makes the unit run longer because it has to heat the water up. always run the hot water at the sink to bring hot water up from the water heater to the sing so the dishwasher fills with hot water and not cold.

Frigidaire FFB240 dishwasher won't stop


Good Morning AA1970,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FFB240, continuing to run unless you shut it off. While I'm not familiar with this particular model number, I suggest that you give the appliance a hard reset. You will do this by shutting the power off at the circuit breaker for at least 20-30 minutes. After restoring power, run the cycle. If it is still continuing to run unless you shut it off, I suggest contacting a local authorized technician for further assistance.

-Best Regards-

The dishwasher continues on the wash cycle for hours, even when I choose the "light" wash cycle


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Normal cycles on new dishwashers is an average of two hours and opening the door makes it longer.Also if the water temp coming into the unit is not hot enough it takes even longer because now it has to heat the water.Yes new dishwashers can take a very long time to run a cycle.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

I have a Whirlpool Gold Dishwasher Quiet Partner IV. GU Series. It has stopped working and there are no lights on the panel. We have checked the power supply and that is fine.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Press and hold the AIR DRY/RINSE ONLY button to reset the control, if you have already tried this and it is possible that the door was opened while in cycle then the first thing that should be checked is the door switch/lock assembly. You can take a hair dryer and try to blow air on that, if the problem returns then replacing the door switch/lock assembly is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

We have the Whirlpool Gold quiet partner III dishwasher and lately have noticed residue on the dishes after the cleaning cycle is complete. Where is the trap to clean?


Make sure your water is hot, at least 120deg f. Also, use least amount of soap you can get away with. Usually around 2 tablespoons for soft water. Use powdered soap not gel. Gel leaves a tiny residue each load and will clog up plumbing in dw after 4,5,or 6 years. Rinse agent such as Jet Dry is highly recommended.

Try the "Tang" trick. Orange Tang drink mix is mildly acidic. With an empty dishwasher, start and fill, then normal drain. On second fill, add a full jar of Tang then let the dishwasher run for a few minutes. Crack the door to stop the dishwasher and let it sit for several hours or overnight. Then close the door, push start and let the dw run through the remaining cycle. This will sometimes clean out the crud in the water lines.

Hope this helps! Ken

Whirlpool gold dishwasher gets stuck at 53 minutes left for an hour


Try "resetting" the control board by running the diagnostic cycle. The cycle completes in 15 minutes. 
The details are in the service manual. The manual can be found hidden behind the tow plate (at the very bottom front of the washer).
The diagnostic cycle may tell you the problem. It also helps clear up some of the software gltiches. 
It is easy to run the diagnostic cycle.
Just the buttons in the following sequence. The sequence should be complete within 6 sec. 
heated dry -> Normal -> heated dry -> Normal
This will trigger diagnostic cycle of 19 intervals. Pay special attention to the intervals 18, 17, 9, 6, 4.
Interval 18 - displays your controller module number (should be letter 'd' followed by number 0 or 1 or 2 or something. Note that down for future reference.
Interval 17 displays 'software generation number' Note that down for future reference.
Then wait until you reach interval 9.  --- clean LED turns on - then an open or shorted thermister is detected.
-- Sanitized LED turns on - then the washer detected greater than 100 deg F temperature
Interval 7
-- Soaking/sensing LED should NOT come on (unless food soil is present).
Interval 4 -- Soaking/sensing LED should come on


Let the cycle complete and then try running the normal wash. Hopefully the possible glitches are cleared by now and you should have no problem. 
If this doesn't work, time to call the expert tech.

Bosch sgi45e12gb/22 dishwasher won't stop


hey you..I have a whirlpool dishwasher too that would not
stop the wash cycle...it would run for 2-3 hours,
and then run thru the whole wash cycle again!

so..I had a whirlpool factory trained repair man come to
the home. He ran a diagnostic and it was 100% good,
so he called Whirlpool headquarters spoke to them;

said...........every 250 hours the dishwasher will
RE-CALIBRATE itself! running for 4-4 1/2 hours
straight, in order to re-calibrate itself. I was
interupting this by opening the door before it had
run the full 4 -41/2 hours of it's self-maintenance program.

Perhaps that your dishwasher is doing too?
p.s. always make sure you get a repairman that
is factory trained in your specific brand, otherwise
you'll waste $$$ money with a repairman who doesn't
have access to the corporate tech's and direct access
to their parts/inventory.

good luck with your dishwasher!
mine is the whisper quiet with computer control on front
of the door.

Have Whirlpool dishwasher Gold Series, Model GU9805CGB1 which stops part way through wash cycle with the led indicator blinks on the normal cycle.....if we ope nthe door and shut ...it continues until part...


sounds like the door is losing contact with the door switch, first thing i would check is the door strike.Metal strike plate located on the tub itself that the door latch catches as it closes. its a spring metal striker, i would try bending it down a little bit to ensure better contact with the switches inside the door itself . next id open the control panel and check to make sure your door switches are secured well, wires are tight.
