on many models, the timer will not move if the water is not up to temp. be sure that you run hot water in the sink until it gets hot before you start the dishwasher.
are your dishes coming out clean and hot? if not, your heating element may be faulty. this is used for drying, but also to maintain water temp. during the cycle. a bad heating element will certainly make the cycle take forever, if it ever gets done. good luck
Generally speaking, dishwashers don't heat cold water on their own. Be sure the dishwasher is connected to a hot water supply and that hot water is available to the dishwasher at the START of the cycle.
Often it takes hot water several seconds for house plumbing to deliver hot water to an outlet. If the dishwasher is connected to the kitchen hot water supply, run the water in the sink until the water runs hot before you start the dishwasher.
Dishwashers often have heaters to heat the water even hotter than most home water heaters, but they are not intended to heat cool or cold water. You MUST furnish hot water to the dishwasher from the time the cycle is started.
I've seen houses that take so long for hot water to reach a faucet, the dishwasher is already full (of cold water) before the first drop of hot water reaches it.
In my case, the problem was with the control card, located behind the control buttons on the front. The relay driving 120V, 10A to the heaters had one pin dissoldered, probably because of heating. It was dark around the pin. See the picture attached. The top part showd the PCB with the faulty pin marked by a red arrow; the bottom part shows the other side of the PCB with the relay itself.
Remember that this relay/pin drived 1400 W.

you press and hold the programme button and start button then press the power button wait until the light come on then release the buttons .press programme button until the pots wash comes on (time fill) pots wash not on is sensor fill.then you press the start button to lock in your choice.You will probably still have to replace the valve complete as it will cause an overfill problem
