My dw seems to do a good job washing dishes and has been reliable. One annoyance is that after it finishes the wash cycle, it starts to drain. It drains the water fine, in about 3 minutes, but continues to run dry for about 20 minutes, wasting energy and wear and tear on the pump. I suspect that the cycle times are baked into the software on the control panel and is not adjustable, but is 20 minutes the proper running time for that cycle or is the control panel defective? it has always behaved this way.
