Could be that it's waiting for the water to get up to temp.
Maybe a bad heater or thermostat?

I'm not that familiar with GE dishwashers.
Maybe another tech will have something to add.

Hmm, being JW's link said 'Not Available' I decided to looked up the part # WD21X10202 at RepairClinic, but it's also not available there too.

How old is this dishwasher?

The turbidity sensor is in the end of the drain sump. Remove the filter cover on the drain sump and feel inside for any debris and clean it out. Re-assemble the sump start the washer. Once it fills and starts washing add 1 quart of white vinegar and resume the was to completion. This may clear out the particles causing extended wash.

If the sensor AP3794341 is bad, then the unit can run for long periods of time. This part has been permanently discontinued by the manufacturer and we don't know of any source or replacement for the part. Thanks.

Tip from the last GE webinar (doesn't apply to this one, I pray!) : recalibration of the sensor requires *100* power on/off cycles, we were instructed to expect to eat lunch while hitting the start/stop button repeatedly...
