On the Bosch dishwasher you can not program times that is all done by the control. You can let it start then look at the buttons. There is a line pointing to two button for Cancel/Drain. Press these two button at the same time and let it complete a cancel cycle. Then select you normal cycle all times are set by the control and can not be programmed. You may have a problem with the control. Let me know what you find out.

There are no buttons that say Cancel /Drain on this model. there must be another way

PLEASE CHECK.

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 2 years ago.
There are not any buttons that say cancel drain on it. There is a small line under the buttons that says Cancel/Drain You have to press two cycle buttons and that activates the cancel drain. All Bosch units are like this. How many buttons are on your machine?

ANDY - THERE IS SIX SMALL BOTTONS THAT SAY AS FOLLOWS:

Vario speed - Half Load - Intensive Zone

 

+ Start in hr - then just a minus sign - Then Hygiene

 

I AM SORRY THERE IS NO SMALL LINE UNDER BUTTONS THAT SAY CANCEL/DRAIN.

Ok, I found your manual I did not realize that you have a Bosch UK unit. I found the manual and I think we can get this fixed. I need to know what two numbers after the model it should be the model you gave / __ I need this number because there are some differences in programming for the unit.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

 

No Andy, there are no numbers after the model No. - It's a LIFESTYLE ****

that's all it has

 

 

Sorry I didn't know it was a UK model, they don't tell you this when you purchase these items.

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 2 years ago.
Here is a link to all the SMU68MO5AU models there is a number as you can see how many series there are at the manual link. I have checked a few of them and there are differences for the programming. Check this link out.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 2 years ago.
At the link you can go to instruction manuals and type in the first 5 characters of your model to see all of them. For some reason the link will not take you directly to the list. But here is the list with links as you can see there are a lot of SMU68M05AU models with specific serial codes
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
