Having problems with your Kenmore 15129 Built-in Dishwasher ?

Kenmore My dishwasher was in my home when I purchased my home. It is a Kenmore Ultra wash 2, I am not sure which settings to use for basic dishwashing. When I run it it runs for over 1 hour. I don't want it to run that long.


Answers :

Make sure you run water in your sink until it is hot before you start the dishwasher. On the newer dishwashers they will fill and drain until the water is hot enough so it takes longer if it starts with cold water. Normal time for a basic wash could take about 45 min.

Our Miele Incognito dishwasher was installed in our new home in August, 2005. The wash/dry cycle has always taken a very long time - 5-6 hours is now the standard. So we have gotten accustomed to only running the dishwasher at over night. However, for the last few months, we've noticed the dishwasher is no longer drying well - we also need to finish drying the plates, glasses and silverware. Do you recommend we have a service call?


Yes, absolutely. The timer motor is not functioning right for it to stay on like that. Could be other control issues too. ... Miele 24 in. Incognito G843SCVi Built-In Dishwasher

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

It sounds like there's a problem with the dishwasher's heating element.

Frigidaire dishwasher won't end cycle - will run on and on for hours. Sometimes it cycles through, usually it just endlessly washes and rinses. I have to CANCEL the cycle, which causes the dishwasher to empty and run a few RINSE ONLY cycles (which are consistent, cycle time wise) to rinse the soap off of the dishes. Also, the door for the soap seems to stick - how long into the cycle before the soap door should open? Also, does opening the washer during it's cycle (to add more dishes) change or


I would say the resettable thermostat has failed. There is a thermostat which senses the water temperature, and when it fails, it causes the dishwasher to run constant. Replace the thermostat underneath the dishwasher and that should cure problem. P ... Frigidaire 24 in. FDBB540 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Bosch dishwasher Model number SHU4302UC. The dishwasher takes about four hours to wash dishes. During the rinse cyle it can be running for over an hour and I will open it to look in side and find that the bottom is full of soap sudds. I believe it is taking too long to wash even though it does a good job.

Dishwasher will not fill with water. I've already checked the float assembly, that seems to be working fine. The water just doesn't seem to run into the machine. Little history on an unrelated problem: I want to mentioned that not to long ago my brother tried to put a bunch of celery through the garbage disposal. The sinks and pipes got all clogged up and we had to take them apart to clear up. Immediately afterwards the dishwasher stopped filling with water. I don't see how the two can be r

Why do dishwashers have SO much longer run times today than those of the past? Our new Kenmore ''Ultr-Wash'' has extremely long run-times. How can that possibly be a good thing in terms of saving energy?


The latest models all pride themselves in doing a perfect job, almost silently, using much less water than the older models [thus the energy savings] as the most costly part of a dishwasher wash used to be the cost of the hot water. Your dishwasher ... Dishwashers

Typical cycle was 1 hr 10 min. before.

I have a Kenmore Quietguard Standard model 587 Dishwasher. It's about 3 years old. Lately, it has been running fine through the first hour and then towards the end, it will pause and the "Hi Temp" and "Heat Dry" like will start blinking at the same time. It's like it is stalled. When this happens, I open up the door and look at the bottom of the dishwasher were the screen is, and I see there is standing water. I press the "Start/Cancel" button to help it drain all the way, which it does, but th
