How long does your dishwasher run?

I just bought a dishwasher for my new house and it is ECO FRIENDLY, so I was astonished to realize it runs for over 2 hours and this is for the "ECO WASH" setting. I am interested to find out how long other people's dishwasher run for. I think 2 hours is a LOT! lol

  • Mine has 3 settings, the heavy duty wash is about 2 hrs. The one I normally use is about an hr and a half, the light wash setting is an hour.

  • 99 minutes for the pots & pans wash. I know that bc it says it on the front, not bc I timed it. lol
