ok

So first, a normal cycle is about two and a half hours. As for your dishwasher not draining, turn the power onto your dishwasher then press and hold the 2nd and 4th button on the right side of your control panel together for 2 seconds. The clean/complete light should turn on. Close the door and does the water drain out?

I removed all the water already

my dishwasher runs a lot longer that 2 1/2 hours

Can you please try what I asked you to do? I still need you to try so I can determine what is wrong. If you emptied the water out, you need to add water back in, enough to know if it drains when you do what I said.

I did what you said and it drained.

OK perfect, thank you.

Anything else?

OK so that all adds up. The dishwasher is taking longer and longer because the water isn't heating up which stops the dishwasher from draining at the end of the cycle. This is probably the most common issue Bosch dishwashers get, but the downside is that it requires the replacement of your main control board to resolve it. The relay on the main board in the upper right corner of the dishwasher fails to send power to the heater so the board needs to be replaced. Below is a link to the control board you'd need to order and it costs about $150 or so.

The dishwasher is about 15 years old. Do you think it's work fixing or would it be better to replace at this point?

I do actually. This is about the only part I see fail on this dishwasher. If you can replace the part yourself, I think it's definitely worth sticking $150 to repair the dishwasher.
