Siemens (Bosch) dishwasher with drying problem
I am new in this forum. It seems that a bunch of clever people hang around here, so hopefully someone can help me with this problem :-)
Our Siemens SE36A290SK dishwasher (identical to the Bosch model, except for the name) does not end its final rinsing and drying cycle properly. It stops with 1 minute on the display and does not end. During this faulty cycle, it makes a strange "sucking" noise somewhat like when the dentist sucks the mouthwater with his suction pipe. Also, the dishes get a foggy, sticky layer because it is not rinsed properly.
The cycle problem starts when there is about 30-40 minutes left of the program. If at this time I pour a couple of liters water into the machine, the spray arms starts to work again and the program goes into the drying phase after some time and ends normally, with clean dishes.
Does anybody have an idea what could be wrong, and even better, what I can do about it?
Thanks in advance!
