Is it just mine or does your diswasher take forever to run a cycle?

My dishwasher has 3 cycles, 1 hour, normal and pots and pans. I usually end up picking the one hour cycle, because it seems like the normal one takes like 2.5 hours, and the pots and pans. forget about it...that could run for 5 hours...It is craziness! By the time I get the dishwasher loaded today, I am going ot have to pick the one hour cycle again...or we will have no dishes for supper.. Apparently the manufacturers think no one needs dishes!

I hope washing them in the sink is an option. That is what I do here. My dishwasher has been broken since I moved in 8 months ago..

Mine seems to take forever too, but I don't complain as it was given to us for free. I do have to make sure to run it late in the evening so we have stuff for the next day though. LOL

@snowy22315 Do be careful though. My friend told me of a fire caused by a dishwasher. Her friend had set it to run at night and it caught fire and their home burned. So sad. I'm leary of that now.

I bet you I can do my dishwashing faster than your machine (with my own little hands)
