Hi we had the keyboard panel replaced 1 month ago. When I turned it on this morning it keeps going to the 2 hour delay cycle but it sounds like it is running and the minutes are moving down but nothing is cleaning inside the dishwasher

Please take out the main board, keep it immersed in mild liquid detergent solution for some hours, rub it thoroughly with a tooth brush, wash it with clean warm water, dry it thoroughly with hair drier and fit it back. Hope it works. It has done the trick for me several times.
Hi welcome to Fixya. You're right what you're describing is not delay start, but rather a problem with one of the heating component's and most likely the heater relay on the electronic control. The wash cycle has exceeded two hours without a temperature increase of the water and therefore the control "thinks" something is wrong. Whether there is or isn't remains to be seen. Likely if you let the unit operate from that point of displaying "2H" it will run and run for several hours and not heat the water. You can confirm this by pulling out the control and visually inspecting the printed circuit side of the control. Look for a burnt solder on the opposite side of the largest relay ( black or orange retangular box ). That will confirm the heater relay is faulty and the control either needs to be replaced or repaired if you are capable of resoldering the board. Let me know what you find and I'll try and assist you further if you require any. Thanks for visiting "fixya" today and good luck moving forward. macmarkus :)
the front control panel fries out.. We had to have ours replaced after 7 months ... after that was replaced it only lasted 2 months... WE ARE VERY disappointed and will be calling once again tomorrow. The dishwasher is not even a year old yet!
The control panel needs to be replaced (indicated by the "2H" error code displayed at the start of the cycle).
BTW - The number 1 displayed at the end of the cycle indicates the cycle has timed out (i.e., it doesn't mean 1 minute remaining). Hence the continued running of the unit. Until you replace the control panel, you'll have to manually cancel the cycle at this point.
I had the same problem and just today replaced the control board module. Purchased the control module online and installed in myself. Was not that difficult. undo the screws (torx screw driver needed) unhook the connections to the board and label all. Pull the board out and open, found burned connectors. Now works like a dream.
I'm not familiar with this model, but it sounds to me like there is not a problem!
If you set the delay time to 0H, switch off the unit at the main switch, then switch back on. If there is still a 2H displayed, it means that the PROGRAM that you have selected will take 2hours! This is fairly common for the Bosch units on the 50 - 65degC cycles...some models have a "reduced washing time" button - it looks similar to the "delay" symbol, but once pressed, it reduces the washing time by almost half (cuts on rinse cycles) If your model does not have a reduced time button, select a shorter cycle (35/40/50eco), and see if the time is less.
Remember that the latest dishwashers are engineered to be more energy efficient and water wise, so they had to lengthen the wash cycles in order to get good wash results!
Hope this helps!
