Customer Question
My Bosch Dishwasher takes...

My Bosch Dishwasher takes nearly four hours to complete it's cycle....that does not seem right....what do you think

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Bosch is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It is DLX Series Model Number SHX46L05UC/24 and the Dishwasher is 11 years

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Just tell me that this is not the normal length it should take to complete one cycle....what could be wrong if anything?

Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Its probably just a bad turbidity sensor, that is what senses the dirt and grime in the water so as the unit washes the dishes it monitors the clearness of the water and thats how the unit knows when the dishes are clean, when the sensor gets old they dont report properly to the main control so the unit thinks the dishes are dirty and keeps running the cycle.
