Question about Bosch Dishwashers
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.
