    My Bosch SHU3136UC dishwasher is doing the same thing. We haven't changed the settings on the water heater. Where is the control board if I need to check it out?

    I have the same long running problem. My hot water is getting to the
    dishwasher (130 degrees), but the water temp inside is still kind of
    cool (90 degrees). Then it just gets colder the longer it runs. I
    assume that it is either the board, as someone pointed out, or the
    heater itself. How can I check to be sure which one it is? Where are
    these two parts located within the appliance?

I have seen this several times, and all of the times it has a bad control board. usually if you take the control board out, you can see a visibly burnt spot on the back of it wher a connection has melted. Another possible slowrun time problem could be that the water coming into the dishwasher when it fills is not hot. If it isnt hot, it takes the dishwasher longer to heat the water to temp, and therfore it runs longer. Is the water coming out of your tap reasonably hot? if not you may need to turn up your water heater settings. But if nobody has messed with the water heater, or the tap where the dishwasher is attached and the problem just started then thats probably not it. Good Luck!

My dishwasher counts down to 1 minute and is stuck there. If I open the door it starts back at 30 minutes and does it over again.

My Bosch dishwasher had a faulty (undoubtedly from the Siemens factory) solder joint on the load connections of the heater relay in the timer. I cleaned and properly soldered the connections and its worked fine since. (this requires disassembly of the timer assembly). Also noted that additional cycles of more expensive models appear to just be a matter of changing programming jumper on timer.

Dishwasher will not get off wash cycle


Sometimes it's a failure to drain and keeps on, usually due to clogged filters or broken glass or plates in there. Consult the dealer or a handy technician.

My 17352 Kenmore dishwasher runs for an hour or more. Can this be adjusted?


There are wash, rinse, and dry cycles that all take time. Cycle settings allow you to vary this. For example, potscrubber mode will take longer than normal wash. You can opt for no heat drying to shorten the cycle, but then the dishes will be wet and can have possible spotting. Experiment with the controls and find the settings that give you the results you want in the least amount of time. But just FYI, an hour isn't that long for a dishwasher to cycle - many run longer than that.

The dishwasher would wash and wash and wash. It will not go on to the next cycle. If you put it on the rinse cycle, it still rinses and does not stop. We had a tech in. He changed the entire control...


Check the mechanism that activates the washer when the door is closed, the issue may be that the cycles are being interrupted. This dishwasher is notorious for having issues, so it may be better to get a new one if the issue persist.

Door latch.
Open and close the door to make sure the door latch is securely fastened

Hi-Temp Wash, Hi-Temp Rinse, or Sanitize options.
Some models have options that may require a water heating delay, such as Hi-Temp Wash, Hi-Temp Rinse, or Sanitize. Additional time may be required to heat the water to the proper temperature. The dishwasher will continue to circulate water during this heating delay but the timer will not advance until the proper temperature is reached

Dishes are not always dry, even after sitting overnight


hi

make sure you are using rinse aid as this helps to evaporate the water at the end of the cycle in the drying stage. I know tablets have rinse aid built into the tablet but this can wash away on some wash cycles and do nothing so even if you are using tablets i reccommend still using rinse aid.

I have a bosch dishwasher shu6805uc/u06 to long to wash.


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.

LG LDF6810ST Stainless Built In Dishwasher


It is very common that high eficiency, low water using dishwashers take longer to finish all cycles. The best way to "hurry" the washing is to make sure that the water heater is providing hot water of at least 120 degrees. But no hotter then 140 degrees.
If the dishwasher runs even longer, check to see is the dishwasher is actually connected to the cold water line. This dishwasher can be run from cold water but the water heating phase in the cycles will add much time ti the entire cycle.

This unit has a sensor that detects the detects the water clarity towards the end of the wash cycle. Rinsing the dishes may speed the load a little, but encourage not to go crazy on the rinsing because the dishwasher actually counts on the food particles to help clean the dishes.
Also, note that the final (third) blinking light means drying. You can simply open the door anytime after the final draining and power off the dishwasher, allowing the hot dishes to air dry.
Hope this helps. Please resply with your findings. Thanks!

Dry Dishwasher Soap Still in dispenser after wash.


so here it is...
get a screw driver (you may need a "star" head driver as well), get in there and take out all that you can and clean it (it all comes out pretty easily)...you will find a lot of undisolved soap and hard water build up...rinse it, scrape it, vacuum it...just get out as much as you can...keep note of how you took it apart so you can put it back together...then put 1/2 to a whole gallon of vinegar in and run a cycle (hi-temp if you have that option)...if it was like mine most of your sprayers were gummed up and the water just wasn't moving through the machine...

to avoid this problem...use half of what you have been using of your detergent...and only fill the "pre rinse" section if you are doing pots and pans....and then only fill that half way as well.
after that run a few cups of vinegar through on an empty cycle once a month...
whole job (not including the wash cycle) 1.5 hours...
