Hello, welcome to Fixya.

Typically the "normal" wash cycle should be sufficient and take anywhere from 60min to 120min. under normal conditions. ( Though 120 mins is quite long and should only occur if you had a low hot water supply, i.e. many people showering at the same time ).

The one variable in this is "normal". These machines when connected normal or proper should have a hot water supply and a heating capacity of 2 degrees per minute until reaching 150 degrees.

The other "tip" to consider is the numbers in the display ( depending on the model...not all have led displays ) is not actual time, just estimated time based on the previous cycle.

If you select a normal wash and run the hot water tap at your sink before starting the machine and it still takes in excess of 2.5 - 3hrs. to complete, there's likely a heating problem.

Let me know and we can go from there. The B/S/H/ ( Bosch, Thermador, Gaggenau & Siemens ) dishwasher's have had some issue with the heater relay on the control boards dating back to the early to mid 90's. Just browse through the bosch dishwasher problems and solutions under my profile... http://www.fixya.com/myprofile/solutionsfiltered.aspx?ctgid=131&usrid=3604823

and you'll see what I mean.

Thank you for visiting "fixya", please take a moment and rate the info I provided for you here and also let me know if you require any further assistance.

Good luck.

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.

I need to reset my Kenmore Elite dishwasher but i don't know how.


Hello,

follow the below instructions:

Unlock your Kenmore dishwasher control panel by pressing and holding the "Heated Dry" button for four seconds.

Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test

Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.

Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel and stop the "Clean" light from blinking repeatedly.
Good luck.

When I set it to normal wash it takes more than a hour to finish I also press all the other settings dry heat, sanatizer. dont know if I'm doing something wrong


Every setting extends the wash time. You only need sanatizer if your doing a lot of baby bottles. The normal cycle with the strong dishwasher detergent will kill all bacteria anyway. The dry heat extends the time even longer and uses more hydro. Just open the door when the cycle is finished and they will dry on there own.
I hope this is of some help.

I have a new Frigidaire FDB1050RE diswasher. I ran it for the first time set on normal wash and pressing both the Hi-temp wash and heat dry button. This cycle is supposed to take a total of 89 minutes to...


It should still work pretty well but you probably can't use the high temp wash because it will take too long for the dishwasher to heat up the water enough to satisfy the high temp washer thermostat. If the thermostat's calibrated closing temperature isn't reached the dishwasher will just keep running. One thing you should do to improve washing results is to run the nearest tap (probably the kitchen sink) until the water is at it's hottest and then run the dishwasher so the first fill will be hot rather than warm.

My Smeg dishwasher DWF 64 SSE won't go onto rinse or dry


Easy one first try this to see if it helps

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.

Wont dry


make sure you select a high temp wash and the heated dry as well Also, dont put too many plastic items in there at once, they dont dry very well in anything. Check the amount of soap you are using, it shouldent be more than 2 tablespoons (way less than the dispenser can hold in otherwords. lastly, make sure the weater coming into your dishwasher is hot...you may need to turn up your water heater or run the kitchen faucet hot water til its hot before turning on the dishwasher. you said the fan is working, so i assume you can feel the air flow out of it at the lower left during the dry cycle. if you open the unit after its been running for a half hour or so, see how hot it is inside. Idf its not steaming, you may have a bad heater. Thats all I can think of off the top of my head. Hope this help!
