Hi if this is on the sensor dry, this isnt actual time this is estimated and will vary. If its on timed dry then it should be exactly what it says. if you need further assistance let me know.

Bosch dishwasher actual runtime versus indicated runtime.


The usual discrepancies with run times is due to water heating time.
For example, your dishwasher may be estimating run time + time to heat the water from cold.
If your dishwasher is connected to hot water instead of cold, it will skip the majority of the heat cycle and adjust the time accordingly.
On the other hand for other people, their dishwasher brands may say "50 minute wash" but this does not take into account heating time, so wash can be anything up to around 70-80 minutes.

Why does my Kenmore HE3t front load washer always take more time to finish then what it says on the timer?


Check the filters in both ends of the hoses. If they are clogged, it will throw the timer off. If it figures on 2 minutes to fill but it actually takes 6 or 7 minutes, the timer won't be accurate.

I am trying to clean earthen pottery plates in my dish washer and after washing half of the plates disappear.


The Kenmore PRO also has an Ultra Wash Filtration High Energy Filtration System that helps the majority of us with hard water. It features 2 spray arms, and a Turbozone that blasts away the most gunked up items you can make a mess on.

The Kenmore PRO also features 6 cycles. The High Energy Smart Wash Cycle is the most advanced and versatile. It actually senses the load size, soil amount, toughness of soil and uses minimal water and energy. The Smart Wash Cycle runs from 110 minutes to a max of 194 depending on toughness of soil and uses from 4.2 gallons of water to 6.9.

The Pots Pans Cycle also makes some adjustments depending on soil level and takes from 140 minutes to 203 minutes to complete. It uses 4.8 to 6.9 gallons of water.

There is also a self-adjusting Normal Cycle that runs from 110 minutes to 193 minutes and uses 4.2 gallons to 6.9 gallons of water.

The Kenmore PRO also has a self-adjusting China Gentle Cycle that provides a light wash and gentle dry for delicate items and runs from 105 minutes to 194 minutes and uses 4.2 gallons to 6.9 gallons of water.

It also has a 1 Hour Wash that runs for 58 minutes and uses 8.0 gallons of water and a 15 minute Quick Rinse Cycle that uses 2.1 galllons of water.

The Kenmore PRO also has 5 other options that are additional to the Cycles. Each option adds time and water to the selected cycle. They are:

TurboZone, HI Temp Wash which raises the water temperature to 120 degrees F, a Steam Sanitize which raises the final rinse to 155 degrees F, a Top-Rack Only Option, and a Heated Dry Option.

The Kenmore PRO also has a Delay Option that allows you to run the dishwasher on off-peak hours and delays the start time up to 6 hours.

I have not field-tested all these options yet, becaue I am such a skeptic -- and picky about my dishes, I usually go ahead and always use the TurboZone, the Hi-Temp Wash, the Steam Sanitizer, and the Heated Dry Option. But, hey if you are plunking down $1500 for a dishwasher--you should make use of all your options. I'll keep this review up-to-date as my dates with the Kenmore PRO progress with dinner parties and my very precious china, but for now (mostly because of the "ClangBanger") our good china is safely stored in the cabinets.

Can not set up my hydrofarm timer to come on for 1 min and off for 5 min.


You posted next to a photo showing hydrofarm analog timer with segments located on dial face.
Open following link for general look at setting analog timers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-set-timers.html

Analog timers have a minimum set time of 15 minutes because the trippers-or-pins-or-segments are made certain width.
If you want 1 minute ON and 5 minutes OFF, you need digital timer.
Most digital timers have minimum set time of 1 minute.
But digital timers have limited number of set points per day unless you get into heavy-duty Intermatic timer like the ET70115 timer with 100 or so set points.

If you want 1 minute on and then 5 minutes off, and want to repeat that same cycle over and over throughout the day and night, you would need 240 set points.
Or check out 120V adjustable cycle timers.
https://www.grainger.com/Grainger/cycle-timers/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hbZ1z0q55s

If you want the cycle timer to operate certain hours only, then put ordinary 24-hour timer between the cycle timer and the load.

The washing cycle takes much longer than the time listed on the panel.


Sounds like the pump may be clogged. If it doesn't get rid of all the water, it wont' spin. Remove bottom panel. Locate what looks like a big white screw. Remove counterclockwise. (It's tight). Have a bucket ready under neath, or a shop vac. Remove slowly to catch water as it comes out. When you pull the white part of the pump all the way out, there's probably things clogging the holes.

Wash cycle


momrules, it could vary depending on the water entering the dishwasher. On a heavy cycle normal time is about 85 minutes not including thermal holds ( pauses that heat the water). On a normal wash, 68 to 75 minutes not including thermal holds. If the water entering the dishwasher is not at least 120 to 140 degrees the dishwasher will pause in cycles to heat the water before advancing. So 120 minutes is not unrealistic. The heaters in the dishwasher are low wattage and will only heat the water approx. 2 degrees every 5 minutes. Catriver.

Quick Wash cycle restarting


Aestaie, On the quick wash cycle the machine goes through a heated rinse at 160 degrees. I think what's happening here is that the board checks the thermistor and is finding that the water is not hot enough and say's, hey, I need more time to heat this water and resets itself. The element in the dishwasher will only heat the water 1 degree every 3 to 5 minutes. So after the initial wash, there is a 2 minute drain, it fills again and there is the heated rinse. If the water is 120 and the final rinse needs to be 160, we have some heating to do here. Therefore the reset. Sounds like the dishwasher is working OK, Catriver..post back
