Question about Bosch Dishwashers
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
Based on you description of the timer not advancing I wonder, does it appear to heat the water ? I doubt it if my suspicion is correct.
The SHU 30** unit`s with a mechanical timer have very few if any, issues with the actual timer or element but they do with the thermostat within the door panel.
If it is not satisfied the water won`t heat, hence timer will not advance.
Here`s what you can try. If you have any hesitation or reluctance to service this yourself please call in an authorized B/S/H/ appliance technician.
** Turn off the breaker at the service panel before attempting any service suggested **
1) If you have a #20 torx screwdriver, remove the door panel by taking out the screws around the panel ( watch the edges they are very sharp )
2) Once the panel is removed you should see the thermostat over by the detergent dispenser clipped to the inner door...
Remove it and test it, you`ll need a ohm meter/multi-meter plus a lighter or match to heat it up( or carefully set it on a stove burner for a few seconds until you hear it "click" or watch the meter move if it has alligator clips to fasten to the thermostat connectors..don`t burn yourself or the wire leads ) to see if it open`s & closes.
Let me know how you make out and what you find.

This is most likely due to corrosion or wear on the contacts in the switch behind the dial. If you are ambitious ( there are numerous contacts) these can sometimes be cleaned to give a lot more life to the switch and save the price of replacement/service. Or you can buy a new switch, easy to install (wires).

Welcome to FixYa
that the Timer is stuck, as everything else is working fine in the unit and the
dial ust gets stuck and so won't complete the cycle so the problem is with the
Timer motor going bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have
any other questions.
