Hello,

It sounds to me by your description the unit is getting hung up trying to heat, hence the estimated time jumps around.

The issue with your Bosch dishwasher likely lye`s within`the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ). This is why it runs forever unless pressing the two buttons for "cancel".

The displayed numbers are not "actual" time's, it never is on Bosch. Basically there are far too many variables to be "actual" time, call it a guess by the control based on data gathered thru-out the cycle if you like.

Read my solution and then you can make an educated decision when I'm through on whether to replace or repair, that is obviously up to you.

To repair your unit It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board. This will be one of the pins from the heater relay, hence the unit sit`s ( because it can`t heat to advance or until canceled ) trying to heat the water.

**Further to this, if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...although Bosch recommend`s replacing the control and I don`t pretend to speak on there behalf nor do I profess to know better. This is just my experience (it work`s) and my opinion (why buy new if one can repair ?)**

**Please disconnect the power before attempting any service to the dishwasher. If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau, to service your machine.**

Hope this answer`s your question's, let me know if I can assist you further. Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair inquiries. Please take a moment and rate this solution to it's helpfulness to you and leave a testimony if you're satisfied.

Good luck.

My LG dishwasher counter doesn't count down


Since you didn't give the model number, I looked at a general user manual for an LG dishwasher. It suggested that if the water is cold, it would take longer to wash the dishes. That suggests to me that a cold water temperature might prevent the timer from starting till the desired temp is reached. Could that be the problem? Could it be connected to a cold water supply rather than hot? Is the hot water set too low?

I am not sure how to set the time interval in the nap mode. It starts at 2 hours, and I can't change it.


Ok, this is the way it works, and I keep my clock radio for this feature alone. It is a 2 hour "count down" timer. It is set in 15 minute intervals. Supposed you wanted to take a 1/2 hour nap. Press the button but don't let go. As you hold your finger down the timer will start at 2 hours (2.0) and it will then go to 1.45, etc. When you get to a 1/2 hour let go and it will start counting down. If, in the process, you make a mistake, press the blue button and don't let go. Hold it down until it erases the setting and removes the NAP text from the front display. Release button. Start holding down the button again. Once again, the display will go to two hours, continue to press button, it will start counting back in 15 minute increments. Again, when it gets to 1/2 hour, quickly let the button go. As the clock counts down, you cannot see how much time is left on the clock. Press the button, quickly let go again. It will display how much of the 1/2 is left. When the clock counts down to zero, either the alarm will sound or the radio will start playing depending on what you set the alarm to do. Press the off button, that's it... (0:

Firewire hd not showing up in profiler or diskutility on imac gr


Hello! You know how to take off the HDD from its casing?  okay, No. 1 error is due to loose of connections. All you have to do is to dismantle it. And be sure to memorized where its original position. You need to set the jumper settings of your HDD to master.  next, be sure all the connections are intact and well connected, then assemble it again. next, be sure you are using Power Mac g4 CPU 1.2Ghz with at least 1GB of memory or Higher than G4 units, cause 300GB couldn't be detected lower than that, then plug it in. if it still didn't work out, try to ask help from service center near you to assist you.
