Hi,

My Bosch dishwasher has been performing poorly and the cycle times are longer (3-4 hours vs previously about 1 hour). From what I read this may be the heating element. I am trying to find out the way to perform the diagnostic test. I saw a post for this for other Bosch dishwashers, but my model wasn't included. Can anyone tell me the steps involved and how to interpret the results?

Thanks!

Unless you have access to the wiring diagram Id advise having out a service tech. Its been my experience though- that the heating elements dont go bad all that often. There has been an ongoing problem relating to overheated solder joints on the heater relay on the control module. Once you gain access to the module, a close visual inspection under magnification will tell. I'd get out my soldering gun, touch up the joint and all's well. Done this enough times now that's where I'd go looking first...

Has the unit shown any faults? You could have a bad NTC sensor but it's replaced as part of the heater.
Generally you will have a fault if there's a problem with the heater circuit. I would aslo suspect the control
as previously described.
