Make sure your water is hot enough. Water temp has to be at least 120 degrees even to activate the soap and also heats your dishes up enough to allow them to dry. Also, be sure you are using rinse agent such as Crystal Clear or Jet Dry. These break the surface tension of the water and allow most of the water to flow off the dishes and down the drain.

Hope this helps! Ken

My 17352 Kenmore dishwasher runs for an hour or more. Can this be adjusted?


There are wash, rinse, and dry cycles that all take time. Cycle settings allow you to vary this. For example, potscrubber mode will take longer than normal wash. You can opt for no heat drying to shorten the cycle, but then the dishes will be wet and can have possible spotting. Experiment with the controls and find the settings that give you the results you want in the least amount of time. But just FYI, an hour isn't that long for a dishwasher to cycle - many run longer than that.

The dishwasher runs through it's cycle but does not clean the dishes properly and leaves a cloudy film and smears on the inside of the machine and the dishes


    Common Problem
  1. Confirm the wash water is hot
    1. Try heated wash(sani wash) if available
    2. Run hot water in sink to warm up before starting
    3. At least 120 degree Fahrenheit water temperature
  2. Open door check wash arm position start washer for a minute
    1. Confirm wash arm has rotated
    2. Check for plugged spray tips at either end of wash arm.
    3. Use small tweezers to remove
    4. Check for rack and dishes interfering with arm rotation
  3. Place cup in upper rack with opening up cycle washer.
    1. Confirm that cup quickly fills with water
    2. Not washing check water level in tub mim 1 1/2 inch
  4. Discontinue use of rinse/dry liquid additive.
    1. Confirm rinse/dry additive not leaking from dispenser into tub
    2. Washer detergent contains sparkle additive and too much sparkle/rinses/dry additive will coat dishes
    3. Try alternative wash detergent that contains minimal rinse/dry additive and use without liquid rinse/dry additive.
  5. It will take several wash cycles after the elimination of rinse/dry to purge the oily film from dishes and machine..
  6. If success "joy" is achieved with no additives then cautiously add back wash detergent with additives. Additives are important to facilitate drying and protecting the glassware china from leaching. The leaching process permanently etches the surface of glassware leaving a cloudy appearance.

Stays in wash cycle


The timer circuit on the panel needs to be replaced. It is not going through all of the cycles!

I have an indesit widxl146 washer drier and the machine takes an age to dry clothes, 9 hours as oppose to 2 hours when new


9 Hours!!! I hope it isn't because the clothes are too wet because if it is I wouldn't like your electricity bill!!
There are a number of things you need to check.
I assume that you are not overloading the machine, and that you are using the correct spin cycle
Don't start the drying cycle directly after the wash, take out the clothes and see how dry they are after the wash, you need to ascertain if it is spinning the load sufficiently fast to dry them. How dry are they directly after the spin? If they are not wetter than they should be then the dryer is not getting hot enough during the drying cycle, this could be due to a faulty thermostat or element.
Make sure all the filters are clean including the pre chamber down below so that it can pump out the water (I guess it must be clear if it is washing ok? but check anyway.
The principal parts involved, assuming that
Also check that you haven't got a delay set for the dryer (unlikely I know but I thought I would mention it anyway)
I hope that helps.

I have a bosch dishwasher shu6805uc/u06 to long to wash.


Well not going into the dry cycle could be a timing issue or a EOC (control panel) issue and will need to be addressed. But most dishwashers these days have a active run time during normal cycle of 110 to 120 mins, and thats not including the heated dry feature. I would let the unit run and see if it will finish on its own, and if I say it pushes two and half hours then something is wrong. A tech would most likely have to look at it, also a power reset could help but thats like a 30% chance.

Bosch dishwasher she45m


Just bought a Bosch dishwasher and we were told that they have no heating mechanism to dry the dishes, which is why they are more energy efficient.  You are supposed to leave the door closed for at least one hour after the cycle is complete.  The heat that has built up inside during the wash cycle will dry the dishes.  It is also recommended to always use JetDry. If you follow this advice, the dishes will come out fine.

Are you using a rinse aid like Jet Dry??  All dishwasher manufacturers now require that you use rinse aid for drying dishes at the end of the cycle.

Dishwasher not drying


Same problem here. I read the manual very carefully. "OptiDry", "ExtraDry", "EcoDry", "condensation drying" -- lots of fancy words to cover the simple fact -- they DO NOT DRY the dishes. There is no heating element. I wish they would just state this up-front. Air drying the dishes for 24 hours after each wash is not workable for most users...
