The membrane or touch pad is bad. Most of the time you need to replace the whole control panel. Usually one of the buttons has failed causing this symptom.

The dishwasher runs for 1 1/2 hours on the wash cycle.


Hi,

This may sound strange but that is a normal cycle time for today's dishwashers. They use much less water and the water is 'recycled' within the filtration system in the pump.

By reusing and filtering this water they save on heating energy and water consumption. The motors are not as powerful so they use less power even when running longer. Many machines will alternate the wash between the upper and lower arms, this type uses much less water and energy but again the trade off is long cycle times.

If you were to select a heavy or pots and pan cycle with hi temperature wash and a sani rinse your times can be up to 4 hours in some machines today.

The reason behind these savings are mostly due to the energy standards that the appliance manufactures have to abide by today.

I know this may not have been what you wanted to hear but it is how they work today.

Dishwasher doesnt drain on wash cycle,ok on rinse cycle


Change the circuit board, timer/progrsmer.
Take it out and clean contacts,
Look for burnt circuit line and solder a fine bead carefully on the circuit board, difficult. Use the pot and pan program.

The washing cycle takes 2 hours to complete


Make sure the sani cycle is not selected, or pots and pans, also with the dry cycle most will take about 2 hours, if your dishes are not that dirty use the short cycle. Be sure your water is at least 130 F. Run hot water at faucet before starting the machine.
