    If the element is getting the proper voltage but not heating up then the element is bad

If you have 240v going through the element then you have a broken neutral somewhere.Check the wires in the door,the thermostats,or the timer/pcb.the elemwnt wont be faulty.

My Bosch SHU9925UC dishwasher will not stop cycling and come to an end. I also noticed that a couple of weeks ago it stopped beeping to signal the end of the wash. Can anyone help me please? Thanks for...


From the Appliance Repair Clinic:

The cycle doesn't complete
If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

Water-heating cycle
Timer
Water-heating cycle
Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

* On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.


* On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.

Ariston LS 2020 taking more than two hours to go through cycle.


Ariston and on and on...lol

The water temp thermostat is to blame or the water is not heating.Basically what happens is the washer fills with cold water and starts to wash and heat at the same time.Once the water reaches a certain temperature it moves onto the next stage of the wash program.If the water is not heating or the thermostat is not working the programmer wont get the signal to move on.Hope this helps.

Regular cycle took 3 hours then would not shut off. Stopped at 1 min. soapy water still filled the bottom, dishes had soap on them. water finally drained almost out but I am afraid too run another cycle. ...


There is a heating element in the dishwasher that heats the water to about 155F at which point a thermostat closes and sends power to the timer to advance. If the water does not reach this temp, the dishwasher will not advance. Often the problem lies in a faulty part in the heating circuit like the heating element or the thermostat faulty but you will need a technician to verify.

    I have a Bosch SHV55M03GB dishwasher which does not heat the water. The programme cycle also sticks at the last minute. Any ideas, heater element or control panel? Thanks.


    If cycle proceed normally after waiting for a while, then the control is probably OK. It stands by a while because it does not read correct temperature before proceeding.

    If the appliance is connected to both hot and cold water, open more the hot water faucet.

    If the water is not heating at all, check heating element for continuity, using a tester.

    If water is heating regularly, but cycle is still slow, check thermic sensor.

    Here are more suggestions from Repairclinic:

    The cycles times are too long If your dishwasher's cycle times are too long, check these:

    Water pre-heating
    Cycle not completing
    Water pre-heating Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water.

    To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

    Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

    My Miele dishwasher is not heating the water.


    You would need to look at the wireing diagram and find out if there is any thermostats that I'm sure there are. You would need to find out if they are working properly.
