Whirlpool GU2300 built in Dishwasher. It rather suddenly began shutting off in mid-cycle. If I cancel or open it, getting it to finish the cycle or even drain takes many tries.Once started, the cycle might take several hours with long pauses during the cycle. When it puases, none of the lights are on at all. If the cycle is disturbed, the normal wash light blinks, and if I hit cancel, the cancel light and the normal wash light blink.

Frigidaire FDB520RHB Dishwashers : We bought this dishwasher about 3 months ago. Today I ran the washer before I left to do errands and when I returned, I believe the washer had finished its cycle. But about an hour later, I noticed it had started up on its own? It then proceeded to run for almost 3 hours before my husband canceled the cycle. We were kind of waiting to see if it would stop on its own, which is why we let it go so long. I think it usually takes about 1 1/2-2 hours to wash. Could

Our Bosch SGS 53E02 AU/30 Dishwasher has the Tap Light on all the time while the Dishwasher is filling up. It appears as though water cannot get through and takes a long time to fill. It also does not allow the wash cycle to start and the powder door does not open. Can you also get any Service manuals for this model?

When dishwasher is set to begin, sensor takes very long period of time. Cycles are longer than minutes indicated. Dishwasher fills with water but does not wash. Water then drains as though cycle is complete and moves to next cycle. Then the process continues. When cycle for drying is reached, much heat is given and occasionally it smells as though there is burning. A 82 minute procedure turns into hours.

Have a new GE Profile dishwasher. The LED time display started at 62 the first time we used the machine. It keeps going up and is now at 108. Is it broken and how do we reset the time back to something more reasonable. We typically pre-wash the dishes anyway and it shouldn't have to take that long to clean....thanks!

My Bosch SHE45M built-in dishwasher is suddenly taking an extra-long time to go through its cycles. On Regular wash it will countdown from 117 minutes to 31 minutes. When it hits that time it resets to 87 minutes, then counts down to 1 minute and will not stop. I have to hit the cancel-reset buttons for it to drain. I have tried to do a hard reset by cutting the power at the breaker for 20 minutes or more. I'm interested in potential parts and a description of how to fit it! Thanks in advance.

My 2008 frigidaire 24" dishwasher model #FDB1050REC is not washing during the cycle. I have run the test cycle and the tub is filling up and draining but no washing is taking place during the wash cycle. The dishwasher has an electronic control board and therfore no mechanical timer. I put test leads to check for voltage on the power leads to the main washing pump, which I have already replaced with a new one, and I'm only registering a low voltage of around 10 or 11 VAC.
