Question about Bosch Dishwashers
Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description I'd say the issue actually is with the control...unfortunately. This is likely 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 ).
If you feel capable of checking this on your own, there`s a way to visually inspect the control yourself...it really isn't very complicated.
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.
The culprit will 99% of the times be one of the pins from the heater relay,hence the unit sit`s and takes longer & longer to finish because it can`t heat to advance or unless the 2 buttons for "cancel" are pressed...this can also manifest as a long cycle time as I mentioned and eventually display's "1" on units with a display and usually very poor cleaning, no heating ( don't be fooled by the homes inlet hot water temperature ) as a result.
You can also run the unit through a regular or econo cycle ...any cycle with the exception of rinse & hold, and with the door panel removed place an ammeter on the gray/black wire it should draw 11 amps during the wash cycle...after it fills and the flow switch indicates it has adequate water to engage the heater.
i.e. ( this may differ from your specific model, but the same rules apply )
**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...or it will not last. Bosch recommend`s replacing the control and I don`t pretend to speak on their 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 or turn off the breaker before attempting any service to the dishwasher.**

Good Afternoon Tie, thank you for your inquiry!
From what you have described your Frigidaire dishwasher continues beeping a sound every few minutes even when the power has been shut off. It sounds like this could be a possible issue with your control panel or keypad. I would recommend performing a reset on your dishwasher and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes. I hope this information is helpful for you. -Matt

Good Afternoon David, thank you for your post!
From what you have described your Frigidaire range your Frigidaire oven shuts off and display remains the same. This could be a faulty control panel or wiring harness. In order to diagnose which component could be the problem you would need to disassemble the range and test each electrical part. I would recommend this be completed by a technician for proper repairs. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt
