Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17462 / 17464 / 17469 Built-in Dishwasher
The dishwasher runs for three hours, regardless of which cycle it is in. Is this normal? I have never had a dishwasher that ran this long before.
I doubt it. If the unit has a mechanical timer, it is binding. If the shaft cannot be cleaned up, it will have to be replaced. Typical times are 40 minutes to an hour, depending on the cycle.

Welcome to FixYa
The problem is with the float switch assembly that is bad and needs replacement. A float switch on a dishwasher is designed for one thing, to stop the water flow from the dishwashers water valve. To access the dishwasher float switch regardless of the make or model, 99% of dishwashers are accessed from behind the toe kick panel i.e by removing the front bottom access panel. When the timer or main control call for water, power is sent through the float switch wires, when the dishwasher has filled up raising the plastic mushroom looking piece high enough, the switch will stop power from getting to the water valve. That is the idea behind the switch, to further test this switch with a volt meter you can view this video: Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
