Gu 120 es

there is a "smartclean" sensor that measures dissolved solids in the water in an attempt to shorten the washing cycle. however if the dishes have much food left on them, then the washer will continue to run untill it gets a "clean" reading, or it reaches the max run time (180 minutes). all energy star dishwasher require the dishes to be throughly rinsed before washing in the machine. trust me, i know how counterproductive this is.

The washing machine is taking longer time

You can check that pump filter which is behind the base plinth, also check that the water entering the machine is at a reasonable pressure. If the machine is taking a longer time to wash and both inlet and the outlet of water is ok, it is more than likely a wash side heater fault. Basically, you set, for example. a 40 degree cycle, the heater does not operate and the water never reaches the required temp, the machine ventually times out on the heat phase and then moves on to the rinses or aborts to the end of the cycle.

My scotman model sce170a1a.goes into harvest to

That has to be a faulty control wouldn't you think?
The cube size control should only be adjusted to
bring the cubes to the correct shape, the overall
size cannot be adjusted. Try to adjust the cube
size control when the ice machine is in the harvest
cycle, or in the first 10 minutes of the freeze cycle.
1. Open the door and remove the control box
2. Locate the cube size adjustment screw, and to
make fuller cubes, turn the screw clockwise about
1/4 turn. This will make the freezing cycle longer.
3. To shorten the freezing cycle and make cubes
that are not as full, turn the adjustment screw 1/4
turn counterclockwise.
4. After the next freezing cycle, the cubes should
have responded to the adjustment, if another
adjustment is required, do it early in the freeze

A 40 degree cotton wash takes around 3 hours to complete cycle, manual states 90 minutes, any ideas ?

It is possible the heater element is not working, you need a meter to test it with, and make sure you have selected the correct programm for what you are washing as some programmes can take up to 3 hours to complete.
Hope this helps.

Timer Jumps

Hi. The time displayed at the start of the program is an estimated time to complete the cycle. The appliance will calculate the wash time base on load size, water pressure, water temp ect. If a smaller load is to be washed then less water will be required thus shortening the time required to fill and heat water as a result this will reduce the wash time. EG. The more water you put in your kettle the longer it takes to boil.
