Does it wreck, damage or otherwise even mildly harm the dishwasher to turn it off and advance the dial to hurry it through a wash cycle? I work at a winery where there's only wine-glasses to wash - it seems to me 20 minutes at high temperatures (a wash and rinse cycle) - are enough, not the 90 minutes a cycle would otherwise take. I was told that I'm ruining the dishwasher by moving it along. I'm having trouble believing this. The wineglasses (my way) are coming out clean and shiny and too hot to touch, so they're clearly clean and germ-free after 20 minutes at high temperatures.

Thank you - this enquiring mind needs to know.

If you're talking about the dial-type timers, these can be advanced carefully, click at a time, to the desired setting. What kills them is spinning them rapidly or turning them the wrong way (in the case of timers that are designed to turn only one direction).
