My 8 year old Bosch dishwasher has always taken 3 to 4 hours to do the job. I don't think this should be. Please advise. Thank you.

    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. from repairclinic

How do i run a test / diagnostic mode for the bosch sge63e05uc (evolution series) dishwasher?


Are the instructions on how to run the diagnostic test listed in the manual? FYI, I couldn't run the test on my Bosch DW because it was just too broken. Over the years the dishwasher essentially fried its own circuit board with excessive heat, which I learned is a problem common to Bosch DW's. Bosch told me the lifespan of my model was 10 years; mine was 11 years old (but was repaired once or twice). I replaced it with a Miele; no problems yet after 4 1/2 months.

Our Bosch is 3 years old. I always use the Quick


Hi, What you're seeing when it display's the "1" is actually an error indicating a fault with the heater circuit. Likely if you select just a rinse cycle it will complete fine since the rinse cycle doesn't call for heat from the element/control. sooo... Based on your description I'd say the issue is with the control. Bosch has had a history of this exact problem I'm about to lay out for you and this is the first thing I'd be looking for if called out to service the unit with the symptoms you've described. ( unless you requested a resolder option...see below re: my opinion on this ) I digress, As I've alluded to the issue is 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 ). My first suggestion would be calling in an authorized bosch servicer if that is an option for you and your budget however, If you cannot afford that option or feel capable of checking this on your own, there`s a way to visually inspect the control yourself. 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 and takes forever to finish and eventually display's the "1" error because it can`t heat to advance or unless the 2 buttons for "cancel" are pressed. **My Opinion - if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...but it has to be done well...half assed will not last, 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, 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. Good luck. macmarkus :)

Ingrained glass on top shelf


Hello. Begin by running the dishwasher after adding two cups of vinegar. Use the hottest and longest cycle u have. This will clean your machine. Then change over to cascade liquid and see if it imakes a difference. Finally, always run the hot water in the sink until it is real hot before you turn on your dishwasher.

Check continuity of the heating element to see if it is broken/open.
The dishwasher prefers that the incoming water (water heater) be 120 degrees (F)
