KitchenAid KUDP01DLBS2 dishwasher. Runs for a very long time on any cycle; time does not seem to advance. (takes 2.5 hours or more for normal cycle. "sensing soak", "water heating" lights on for a long time, even though it appears that water is not being heated. Checked incoming water temp, is hot. Did not do this when new, something has changed. Typical cycle was 1 hr 10 min. before.


Sounds like the heater inside the dishwasher is not working. The machine is trying to get the water up to a preset temperature, probably in the neighborhood of 140 degrees. That is one of the things that it is sensing.After the machine fi ... Dishwashers

I have model #FGBD243KF1, Gallery 24" stainless. The wash cycle is taking almost 2 hours. Should it take this long? Also, when switching cycles during the wash time the motor whines a bit. Is this also something to live with or should I get it checked out? Thanks.

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.

I have a 1999 bosch SHU 4300 dishwasher given to me. It worked great for about two weeks. Now it takes for ever *3-4 hours* to complete a cycle (if it does). I have opened the door to see it filled with sudsy soap after this long. I have checked the hoses and they are not kinked. Once the cycle of cleaning is over, If I reset it manually, it will rinse the dishes and empty just fine. But I have to manually get the dishwasher to advance to the rinse and dry cycle every time now.

I have a Bosch (SHU5302UC/U12). The washer often takes 2 or more hours to run. Sometimes it gets stuck for a long time part way through (e.g. just sits at "43"). Other times, it gets stuck at 1 and won't stop on its own. The latest thing is 2 dots have appeared on the display that I've never seen before. For example, instead of "43", it reads "4.3." Eventually it gets to "C.L." but does not stop running. Also, its been making very strange noises during part of the wash cycle.

My dishwasher is brand new Model FDB1502RGS0. I used it for the first time today. It seemed to be cleaning for a very long time. It was up to 2 hours and I had to leave so I turned it off. How long should it take. That seems like an awfully long time. I kept waiting for the drying mode to start and it sounded like it kept filling up and emptying. Does this sound right? Please advise asap.


Most DW today take a minimum of 90 minutes. Run the hot water from the\015\012sink until it gets hot, then start the DW, this will shorted the first\015\012wash cycle. It is not uncommon for the DW to run 2hrs or more based\015\012upon the water temp ... Dishwashers

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.

Have a 665-16293201 dishwasher with electronic controls and smart sensor. Approx 10 years old in great shape. it just started having a problem - it takes a long time for the sensing to be completed at the start of a wash and then the washer will start and display a time - like 92 minutes - turn the sensing light off, then start to wash and count down. when it gets to 86 minutes, it starts to sense again and will continue washing while displaying 86 and with the sensing light on.

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

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

Replace the thermostat underneath the dishwasher and that should cure problem. P ... Frigidaire 24 in. FDBB540 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a couple of problems. Firstly, the auto programme now shows a cycle time of 199mins but actually takes much longer than that to complete - more like 4 hours. On the quick (!) wash cycle the time is 97 minutes, whereas it should be less than 30 mins. Second problem, the detergent box flap won't stay shut when loading, so I have to put the tablet in loose in the bottom. Could the 2 problems be related?


There is an issue with the machine not heating properly, it could be the control panel or the thermostat, The flap not staying shut is not connected to this. ... Dishwashers

We have a Bosch Diswasher Model SHX-46A05UC that we purchased three years ago. We have loved it! This week it started running a long long time and won't finish on its own. Also the santitized cycle is not working. We live in a remote mountain town and our local appliance repair man refuses to work on it because it is a Bosche and he hates them. Please help! Can we do something on our own before having to pull the dishwasher and take it out of town for repair? Thank you...Jackie
