This could be one of a few things,first it sounds like it may be getting stuck on the rinse cycle,check if the water in the machine is hot if not there is either an element problem or the timer is not functioning properly,if the water is hot then it may not be draining before taking on rinse water the best way to determin if it is indeed draining and refilling is to switch the machine off ,take the drain hose and put it on the floor or in a bucket,if it drains let it finnish and then put back and switch the machine on it should fill and continue.if it does not drain then you have a blocked pipe or fualty pump,Do not reset the machine
Probably the hi-limit thermostat which tells the timer that the water has reached a certain temperature. It's about the size of a dime connected two wires, held against the bottom with a metal bracket. Put it on a hot frying pan and see if it goes from infinite resistance to zero resistance (when hot), with an ohmmeter.

I have a SHU3032UC BOSH Dishwasher for a couple of years now. Always worked as expected. Latetly, the dishwasher never stops. It looks stuck on an "unknown cycle"... The cycle dial stays at the "bottom" cycle (there's nothing written). If I turn it 1-2 "clicks", the dishwasher continues its work and ultimatly finishes with very good cleaning results. Once, I open the dishwasher when it was stuck in the "bottom" position, and there was hot watter at the bottom. Here's what I've tried so

First we had drain issue with Bosch Integra® 500 SHX55M05UC Built-in Dishwasher ECO cycle. It stopped after a while. I thought it may be because last cycle might not be finished well. When we ran again ECO cycle with no drain issues but cycle did not finished as it used to be. I am sure because cycle countdown were not zero and because infra red light was off which is sing of complete cycle.

We have a Blomberg dishwasher. We came to a finished cycle to find water in the bottom. We have removed the water by hand, cleaned the filter and the hose. The lights come on, but it doesn't respond when trying to run a cycle. It will do it's ''finished cycle beep sequence'' at the end of the cycle that it didn't actually run. We have reset it by holding down the start button. Turned it off and on, etc.

I have a kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher, Model 15825691. We were recently hit by lighting. Once hit, the dishwasher started up. Since then, all cycles work, however, at the end of any cycle, the dishwasher continues to run and fill the bottom of the washer up to about two inches and then cuts off, so when we open the washer, there is approx 2 inches of water inside no matter what. I have pressed the "Cancel/Drain" button, in which drains the water after two minutes, but when that is finished, the

GE Dishwasher detergent dispenser has hardened soap in it when cycle is done We, too, have the same problem. Ours is a GE Profile MAX - GSD6610K01CC. The basket is obviously not allowing the door to open fully, so I think it is intended to work this way. The question remains, though, why is there solidified powder remaining in the dishwasher after the complete dishwasher cycle has finished? Tabs work well, as the tab falls out, but all the powder doesn't seem to. Electrosol powder is less expen
