Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:
On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.
On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.
About the led:
If your dishwasher has a digital readout and you see an error code, it may indicate a problem with the unit. If this happens, look up the error code in your owner's manual to find out what the problem is.

Sometimes a dishwasher will run for hours especially new ones. Newer dishwashers use very little water but run much longer. There are some things you can do to shorten the time. Turn off the options. These extras will add time to the cycle. Sani rinse, Heavy wash, Hi temp, Pot and pans, Tough cycle. If you have a normal load of dirty dishes it’s unnecessary to add options. A normal load without extras can take 3 or 4 hours alone.
Many owners of the Bosch dishwashers perceive h01 (h: 01) or h02 (h: 02) and other signs as an error. But in fact, this is not an error, and you accidentally got into the start-up timer menu (delayed start of washing dishes). In this case, h01 means that washing dishes will start exactly in 1 hour; if the display shows h02, then washing process will begin exactly in 2 hours. As a rule, in most models of dishwashers from Bosch, a delayed start can be set in the range from 1 to 24 hours.
You can delay the start of the program in 1-hour steps up to 24 hours.
Close the door.
Switch on ON/OFF switch .
Press button  + until the digital display  jumps to h:01
Press  + or - button until the displayed time corresponds with your requirements.
Press START button , timer programming is activated.
To delete timer programming, press the  + or - button until h:00 is indicated on the digital display .
You can change your program selection at any time until the program starts.
No, the problem in not the unit, it is programed to run up to 3-3 1/2 hours for a single cycle. You can select quick wash to shorten this time down, but this is not a problem with the unit. It wants to assure you have clean dishes and hot enough water to complete the program.
In testing one a few days ago, I ran into this same problem, I reread the time charts and cycles and found this to be normal for this manufacture.
I hope this answered your question.
make sure that your filter in the bottom is clean and if you are using the automatic wash cycle, it will wash until the water is clean. Sometimes it will take an hour, sometimes it will take close to 2 depending upon the level of dirty dishes in the dishwasher. And don't rinse! They work better on dirty dishes.
Well not going into the dry cycle could be a timing issue or a EOC (control panel) issue and will need to be addressed. But most dishwashers these days have a active run time during normal cycle of 110 to 120 mins, and thats not including the heated dry feature. I would let the unit run and see if it will finish on its own, and if I say it pushes two and half hours then something is wrong. A tech would most likely have to look at it, also a power reset could help but thats like a 30% chance.
dont know what the previous post is all about all bosch dishwashers contain heating elements!! yours has plainly failed when no heat is present the appliance will default to a 4 hour cold wash,the element is of the instantaneous variety rather like a power shower will need service technician to replace as involved repair for the novice.
hey you..I have a whirlpool dishwasher too that would not stop the wash cycle...it would run for 2-3 hours, and then run thru the whole wash cycle again!
so..I had a whirlpool factory trained repair man come to the home. He ran a diagnostic and it was 100% good, so he called Whirlpool headquarters spoke to them;
said...........every 250 hours the dishwasher will RE-CALIBRATE itself! running for 4-4 1/2 hours straight, in order to re-calibrate itself. I was interupting this by opening the door before it had run the full 4 -41/2 hours of it's self-maintenance program.
Perhaps that your dishwasher is doing too? p.s. always make sure you get a repairman that is factory trained in your specific brand, otherwise you'll waste $$$ money with a repairman who doesn't have access to the corporate tech's and direct access to their parts/inventory.
good luck with your dishwasher! mine is the whisper quiet with computer control on front of the door.
There are a lot of reasons could cause this issue. Could you provide us more details (if you have) which cycle's stage "takes" this time (filling water, washing process,draining etc... )
You answer will allow us to direct you the solution.
Good luck !
